Yes I went - wonderful show - I'm currently sorting videos and pics for your delectation and general delight :) have to say I didn't see any touts... (...

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

It's a shame it's dogs and not goats :(

When I first heard Gun To The Head - on Jules - I thought Damon sang 'owners of rowdy goats'...
Now I know it's dogs... :roll:

Rowdy goats would have been so much better :)
but not historically accurate I guess...

I might try for Thursday. Looks like they've all sold out but I reckon it'll be easy enough to get a face-value ticket e.g. off Gumtree.
Yes I'm going on Tuesday, Neal... :)
Tom - will see what I can do on the recording front - videos probably :)

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Live Performances Thread

Saw a photo here or on instagram and Damon seemed to be nursing a dark ale. I've only ever been to the Brick Lane location (I'm Australian) but is there a pub out the back or something? Something about him a pint... I saw that. It looks like a Guinness, I do know the 10 bells in Whitechapel. Maybe ...

Enjoy the rehearsal to those who are going! Audio is probably out of the question unless someone sneakily records it but some photos would be incredible if possible! Rich - glad you got other things signed other than this new album. I remember going to the Gorillaz "Rise of the Ogre" book signing o...

No more than 50 (25 and their +1s)... edit happy to accept JackS's proper headcount :) :) so that's 40 audience plus crew/management!! a...
