So this year is almost over. I hope 2015 was a good year for you.
I have to say I had both good and bad moments this year, but overall I guess it was a good year. We played total 82 shows in 12 countries. All gigs were very good, there were some sold out shows as well which was great. The west coast USA tour was fun, Rebellion Festival was amazing. Latest album “Yellow Leader” was released in January and the final album “Ziezo” was recorded in November and December! It will be mixed and mastered early next year. I hope people will love this album.
The downside in 2015 for me was Fatso’s passing. It was so sad. I still think about him every day. But 20 years was a great age for a cat. I’m so happy that many people liked him. It was great fun making his merchandise too. Thanks Linzi for creating an amazing Fatso logo!
Also we lost some of the great people this year. Jez Keef, a photographer who took great shots of us over the years, Tony Van Frater from Cockney Rejects, Dickie Hammond from Leatherface and now Lemmy from Motorhead!! Always very sad to hear when someone you know has passed away.
I want to Thank you everyone who came to our shows, bought Fatso merchandise and pledged our upcoming album “Ziezo”. Thanks for your great support. Wishing you all a wonderful New Year. See you in 2016!
