Re: The Magic Whip Tour

Very odd choice indeed, as I have said elsewhere today already. But remembering what Dave said (I guess in an interview backstage at the Isle of Wight Festival), they have to do big shows to cross-fund the small ones -- so here is some hope that a show off F1 in Dubai increases the chances of smalle...

Re: RIP Old Forum: 1 Year On

Re: B-Roads

- Get some mates around, get drunk, act out the whole thing. Very appealing idea, but I doubt I could any of my mates to watch this for long enough to get them acquainted with more than, say, two scenes, maybe three at best...

Re: Gig: Blackpool, 10 June

^exactly my feelings towards that gig. Wish I had gone to Llandudno as well, but since I did not and since there seem to be no more European non-festival dates planned this will be how the Magic Whip Tour ended for me... Shame, since it started of very pleasantly with the Berlin showcase for me.

Re: Gig: Hong Kong, 22 July

I am afraid I keep repeating myself, but I really think Pyongyang should replace the Universal as a closer.
