Needless to say we could see we'd been sold a crock and the vibes weren't great. It was worse after our sound was sabotaged (pity the poor audience). After we finished playing we left without lugging their gear out, which burnt our bridges with the booking agency. Stuff happens ...
Not sure if Skyhooks was known overseas. Hot live band and their drummer, Freddie Strauks, was great http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sb4AdU6rbFc
