So tonight was our good buddy Koray’s birthday, and he decided to spend it with us – party time! 


First up were We Punch Tigers (l-r Martyn, Dal, Nigel), one of the other bands on the bill for Koray’s birthday gig at Edge in Basildon the following night. The Pitsea/Laindon trio have three releases available on their Bandcamp page, and have a busy few weeks ahead with Southend’s The Venue on November 23rd (supporting Vice Squad) before heading back to Edge on December 19th. More news can be found on their Facebook page! 


Next up it was the birthday boy himself. Since Koray last joined us on Boxing Day last year, he’s popped up a few times on the gig scene, but we could well expect a lot more soon, as long as he makes it out of his birthday gig intact – as we found out, there was already one possibility courtesy of We Punch Tigers that left our Koray a little nervous… Assuming he survived, find him on Facebook!
