Longview play Revolution Records, Diss, Norfolk - 2nd July 2004

One of Nosher's favourite Indie bands of the moment - Longview - are playing an "in-store" session at Revolution Records in Diss, where there is also a bunch of fellow fans from the Longview forum, including Quantum Jelly, Orangejumper and Good Will Out. The gang from Revs supply the beers, and Nosher even gets to be roadie for a while, helping the band lug gear to their van waiting on Chapel Street. That adds to the count of bands Nosher has roadied for, which also includes New Model Army in Plymouth in the 1980s

Soundtrack for this album:

next album: A Postcard From Manila: a Working Trip, Philippines - 9th July 2004
previous album: Longview at the Waterfront, and a Trip to the Shops, Norwich, Norfolk - 27th June 2004
