The Miserable Rich want to ring your bell!

ghosts at Blickling Hall 
On Saturday 8th January 2011 The Miserable Rich made a headlining appearance at Norwich Arts Centre with support from Tristram and Ethan Ash. There was a small but enthusiastic crowd who enjoyed every minute of the gig.

On the merch table The Miserable Rich were selling bells to eager punters. Takeda pulled out of the gig at the last minute leaving it up to Ethan Ash to open proceedings. It was like he wanted to change his hair, his clothes and his face.

He did a cover of Leadbelly's Where Did You Sleep Last Night which was very cool. Be warned though Ethan Ash knows what you are doing when he's not around! His singing filled the auditorium with catchy tunes.

Next on stage were Tristram who took us on a journey in a flying machine with added cello which ended up at the opera. They put us all in a dream state complete with alt folk tunes mixed with post rock. They were the perfect band to warm us up for the headliners.

The Miserable Rich took us on an emotional journey complete with great story telling. They can find love with bamboo and paper as they fly their kite. Yummy Mummys need to watch out as they claim that possession is nine tenths of the law.

For the encore The Miserable Rich joined us on the floor for an intimate finish to a fantastic gig. The band are now recording their next album at Blickling Hall while they search for ghosts.
