Hi we love Leeds. When I was younger I didn't have a lot of context for music so I thought that since there was a "Live At Leeds" album by The Who, it must have been some mecca of rock music. That album was all I really knew about Leeds, but I think I started making associations through it to every other thing I would learn about England..The Beatles, soccer, the queen, The Rolling Stones, Donk...to my mind all that British stuff came from Leeds. Leeds was one of the first places we ever played in England, after Liverpool, and one of the first places I'd ever seen in the country. I'd already forgotten all the connections I had made when I was a kid so I wasn't expecting much, but we always had fun there and still stay at our good friend Jase's house whenever we're in the North. We even visited to place where Live at Leeds was recorded...a kind of underwhelming modern looking student place. But some of our best UK shows have been in Leeds at the Fenton when Jase was still booking shows there. We've had a lot of downtime there and have eaten many meals in that Indian restaurant that used to be a public toilet, and watched many football games there, like when Spurs beat Chelsea to win the League cup. We are going there again for a Dr Martens party in a few weeks that looks like it will be fun as well and is free if you rsvp or something.
