15/07/17 - Status Quo's Francis Rossi fan of The Landed!
Brentwood Festival was a great experience. We played on the main stage on the Saturday afternoon and despite the weather the crowd really responded well to our own material. However, we didn't realise that whilst we were playing none other than Francis Rossi of headliners Status Quo was watching our entire set from the side of the stage. Once we came off stage Francis came up to us to tell us how much he enjoyed our set - he also jokingly (I think he was joking anyway) threatened to break Pauls fingers, presumably in reference to Paul's epic solo at the end of 'Freebird' which we closed the set with. It was great to have the chance to chat to rock royalty. Paul and Francis exchanged views on playing styles and equipment and I took a picture of this as proof! Hopefully our paths will cross again in the near future. Status Quo closed the festival with an awesome performance and had the Brentwood crowd eating out of their hands.
An all-round great experience.

01/01/17 - THE LANDED TO BECOME A BOYBAND
Whilst we love a live gig and the chance to thrash our instruments to within an inch of their lives, we recently collectively decided that in a shameless bid to become famous and catch the attention of millionaire talent spotter Simon Cowell, or the guy from 'The Voice' who used to be married to Gwen Stefani, we would trial becoming a proper boyband. Therefore we put down the instruments, brought out the vests, learned some 3-part harmonies and recorded this video of us singing the Fountains of Wayne classic 'Stacies Mom'. The resulting video got 12,000 views on Facebook, a handful of shares and one comment from an internet troll who didn't get the joke. It was our first proper trolling so in that respect the video was a success. However on reflection we felt that becoming a boyband wasn't for us - we can't dance for shit and Paul is the only one who looks OK in a vest anyway. It's still worth a watch though, our voices don't sound too bad!
