They were brilliant last night - despite a piss poor turn out. Played like in front of 30,000 people not 30.

Scott wore a Yo Yos t-shirt and told me before the gig, The Yo Yos were one of his fave bands and the main reason for starting up SATS. How cool is that?

Shocking turn out indeed..... but they played a blinder. Pretty much all of Highball Roller, 1 unreleased song and People Who Died to finish.

Really strange just talking to Scott basically all day, my mate and I did an interview with him earlier on in the day, which should be online soon.

It was really great to hear from Scott that he and his band didn't want to be known as a Wildhearts spin off and that he's happy that he's playing to people who actually wanna hear his stuff, no matter how few it is he's playing to.

If any of you guys get a chance to catch them on the tour do it, it's only a few quid.

I'm really gutted because for various reasons I can't get to any of them.... I was planning on going down to the Brighton date, but that got cancelled (I presume) the others are either too far away or on days I can't do.........gutted, I would have loved to have seen them.

Swansea gig got a review in the local paper:


IF ever there was an award for passion and grit, then Sorry and the Sinatras would win it, hands down.

The four-piece punk’n’rollers, the brainchild of The Wildhearts’ bassist Scott Sorry, pulled into Swansea on their debut UK tour — and found just 30 people turning up to watch.

The lack of bodies seemed to knock support act Portraits off their stride, who punctuated a great performance with awkward silences between songs.

But for SATS, they jumped onstage and played as if their lives, and their dinners, depended on it.

“Come on, come closer — let’s make this a party,” frontman Sorry invited the crowd.

And the minute songs like Riverside, Burns City Burns and Borrowed Time were fired up, the party soon began.

Plenty of bands, from pub-rockers to stadium fillers, would do no wrong in taking a leaf out of SATS’ book.

And looking on the flip-side, this was not a gig that few turned up to see — it was one which many missed out on.
