Our first gig in Bishkek didn’t disappoint, although we were a little apprehensive at playing in a 60s themed, American-style diner, complete with booths and cute, little tables and chairs. But once the sexy red lights were on and all the wholesome pictures of the 60s pop stars removed and replaced with Hendrix and Che Guevara, we felt much more at home. Our first set was watched by a shy, but appreciative audience, who got more vocal as the night went on. By the time of our second set, which included new songs ‘Belly Deep’ and ‘Spoons’, old favourites like ‘Piva’ and covers like ‘Song 2′ and ‘Human Fly’, Saturday night’s drunks had turned up. Then we had slam-dancers, stage-invaders and one guy who got down on the floor and seemed to be pretending to have a fit. Perhaps a Bishkek fashion? We don’t know. But our favourite audience member of the night was our new White City official dancer, Jamelia, who strutted her stuff off and onstage the whole night. You’re hired, girl!
