Wat Tyler, Thatcher On Acid, Dog Day
As Sean and Ben had helped out with the Statement 12” we decided it would be a good idea if both bands did a tour of Ireland. We got them gigs in Arklow, Belfast, Dublin. They were travelling over on the Thursday and the people from Anarchy Night Café were willing to let them play.
Wat Tyler had a deserved reputation for being jokers and they were making comments straight away to the crowd. Most didn’t care but any Wat Tyler gig is a good laugh and one for people not to take too seriously. Having said that though, the way they run their band is a perfect statement in itself. Fiercely independent and always willing to help, Sean and Wat Tyler became a later influence on ‘hope’.
