Andrew.  Well done, you all look like you had a real blast.  Hopefully this will be the first of many, but what on earth were you doing with a Strat when you have your Parker[?][;)]

More fun than a person should be allowed to have!!! :-)

Never bring more than one guitar to any gig. Or bring two Parkers.

You pictures look great. Post some of your music if you can. What's life like on the Isle of Man?
The only thing that exists is this moment now.

I snapped a string on the 2nd song and so had 2 go back 2 my old guitar while my dad tried 2 work out how 2 change the string!! prefer the Parker so much, u can have more fun on the stage cos everythings easier! :D Was a really great gig overall, really good crowd.  

hmmmmm life on the Isle of Man, during TT week it's really buzzing! brilliant atmosphere, we where meant to be playing as their are loadsa gigs happening that week, but our GCSE's ended up taking over and there was no time.

During the rest of the year it's much calmer and bands are only really in the pubs unless someone well known comes over which doesn't happen very often! :-(    but i like it here and the band is going well.
next time i can we'll get some music recorded and i'll post it up.

Thanks for all the comments :)

Yeah, that's what it's all about.  Way to go.  It's only the beginning.  "No Questions Asked"  - great name for a band.  Time to write a song or 2 (or 100).
