Here is a message I received this morning, verbatim. We we’re cheated. We turned up at the Links Pub last night, having seen on Facebook that your band was on. We know you are excellent from seeing you in Penwortham and Chorley. We got there about 9.45 but you had already left! We asked a local where you were, and he said that you played a great first set and then suddenly packed up and left. Apparently the landlord had told you that he wasn’t going to pay you – not even expenses – because it was a quiet night and he couldn’t cover the cost. We know you had travelled a long way and so had we. This is disgraceful. He not only cheated you, but also potential new customers. Although, as the pub was scruffy and dirty, and with little choice of beers, we wouldn't go back there anyway. If you are going to take legal action to recover your costs we’ll support you! It's all true.
