just finished a press conference. which was interesting.

we were asked if we were aware of the political controversies there. we said yes, but it didn't really put us off. Mr average turkish-cypriot deserves to be entertained like anyone else. We're a 'people's band. politicians prefer U2 and pretend to like lady-gaga.

we also pointed out we didn't have a problem playing isreal, which has one of the worst political reputations in the world. But there are plenty of people living there that DON'T agree with what the isreali elite are doing. So they deserve to be entertained too. And if we were guided by the political past [or present] of a country when we booked shows, it would be a very short tour indeed.

since we landed last night, we've bee regailed with stories of our ex-singers tawdry marketing. Our promoter couldn't believe how misleading their posters were. With an enormous UB40 and a teeny-tiny aldi campbell. Our promoter told us they had to mount a publicity campaign on the island to put things straight.

aldi's team talked about how 'packed' his gig was here. And that was true. But when you find out that he venue he played only held 400, with about 600 turning up, it's a surprise that more didn't turn up considering how misleading his adverts were.

in the end, we needn't have worried.

the venue we are playing holds about three thousand. And it's well sold out. The promoter reckons he could have sold it 3 times over.

that's because we are the REAL UB40.!
That's what I always remember about Cyprus-it was fkn hot especially in August. Brings back memories of getting lost in the Trodus (excuse my spelling) Mountains. My other half's sister thought she was going to die. We saw absolutely no for miles while we made a way down and the only thing that kept us going was a radio station that was playing reggae classics.

Great memories, great country and great people. Have a bottle of Keo for me.

Best regards

Chronic
