Soft Toy Emergency checked in with fans on their blog at MySpace (@softtoyemergency) on Thursday (September 3) after performing at the Reading and Leeds festivals last weekend. The Liverpool electro pop act write:
PHWWWWOOOOARR. Last weekend was… well it was amazing. We broke our Leeds/Reading virginity as performers and it wasn’t too sore the following day.
So… on the Friday, we got picked up from our gafs in a gold van driven by the legendary Chris at CIR. Traveling in style… just a wee bit! We were also joined by the legendary Dougie who solved many a soft toy emergency over the weekend.
When we got on site, the whole place was buzzing, like a beehive on pro-plus. We had some interviews to do; and caught a bit of Them Crooked Vultures before our set. Our stomach-caterpillars evolved into butterflies as we were approaching our stage time on the BBC Introducing Stage. To calm the nerves we wrote ourselves an immediate prescription of vodka and coke – definitely seemed to help.
