Choo choo

Indietracks is an indiepop festival held at the Midlands Railway Park, near Ripley in Derbyshire, UK. The big names were the Pains of Being Pure at Heart and the reunited bands the Primitives and the Pooh Sticks. Instead of the dof-dof music common to festivals when the bands stop for the night, the kids bounced around to Belle and Sebastian and the Beach Boys.

We were joined by our friends Bob and Dermott. They ate burgers for every meal and were consistently entertaining.

Also, Chris, our friend from Nozstock who had us play at his local in Swansea a few weeks ago. He played in the Pooh Sticks with his amazing t-shirt.

The festival was manned by railway enthusiasts.

The event raises money for them to preserve the old trains and stations.

We went on a steam train and also looked at the model railway.

Our gig was in a beautifully peaceful old church, corrugated iron on the outside and wood in the inside.

Together, we walk from campsite to festival, and through the country lanes of life.
