Jais recollection of the UK Euro 2009 Tour

Thanks so much to all the wonderful people who supported us in getting to Europe and to all the enthusiastic people who came to our shows in the UK and Europe.

Special thanks to the over 1600 people who bought our CD during our 70 day, 11,000 klms, 9 country tour.

You paid for our petrol and accommodation, our beer (I means food) and a new recording that we will release at the end of 2009 and solidified our confidence both as performers and in our music.

We were overwhelmed by the success of our first international tour and could never have done it without you!


After 5 movies, sitting in one position for 27 hours and eating pretend sausages and fake eggs we cheerily arrived in London.  After a few days of getting over jetlag and picking up CDs, drums and bass cab we headed to York for our first gig.  Thanks to all the lovely people who came along to see us play and welcomed us so wholeheartedly.  The next day we did a street performance in front of a beautiful fountain surrounded by amazing medieval architecture.


We then made our way up to Scotland and played great gigs in Aberdour, Edinburgh, Inverness and Glasgow.  Thanks so much to all the unbelievably hospitable Scots who jammed and smiled along with us and tried to convince us that haggis was yummy.  A trip to Scotland wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the hospital would it?  Well we didn’t think so either and since Jai and Sez were sick we decided to make our first hospital pit stop.  But the show must go on so chasing antibiotics with rum and coke made for a bit of adventure and got them better in the end too.

I heard about the Larkans in Australia from my Dad and had seen a couple of Errol’s comments on Facebook. Dad had briefly told me about your family – and how your one son is Herrin and my name is Kerrin. (I am still rather confused about how we are related but think it is nice to have made contact again.)

On the road in Denmark with Jai

So we are on the road in Denmark now.

The weather is perfect blue and really warm. The last two gigs have been awesome.

Tuesday at Sendesaal in Bremen we played in an amazing concert hall that is used mostly for classical and piano performances. The room is built from beautiful wood and designed for amazing acoustics. About 80 people came to the show and and were all a very focused and listening audience. We played really well and the people who run the place are great.

    Harminder Saini Hey guys
    I heard you for the first time playing in the Melbourne CBD on the weekend. I was completely mesmerised and I had shivers up and down my spine listening to your music.

    I didn't get the chance to purchase a cd....I would love to next time around. Are you playing here anytime soon?

    was a great evening, thank you!

    Hey guys. I had a few hours to kill waiting for the train Sunday @ Flinders Street Station when I was lucky enough to see you play.
    2 hours later after standing in the crowd watching you for that long (I had the Crowded House t-shirt on!), you'd made me a fan and I had to buy a copy of your CD.
    You guys were amazing... love your style & hope to see you play again sometime (I live 200 km away from Melbourne, so unlikely!)... thank you for the free gig.

    I saw you at Salamanca on Saturday and instantly loved your music.
    Keep it up!

    Hi guys... you guys were awsome saturday night in Burnie.. Hope to catch you again.. cheers max.. :)

    I saw you guys playing in Bourke street today and just had to but 'Life on the Border'. It's a great album, keep it up!
