Tweedz prints out the imaginary setlist threads, looks through them and finds the best songs that weren't there. :P

Seems like they broke that a bit when they added Caravan, however! But yes, have tweedz choose the setlist instead of the fucking drum tech!

It's not unusual for a band member to come on here, Dave asked me before the 2009 shows to create a thread on the old forum and ask people what they wanted to hear.

Oh yes Stu is fine! But I thought they were letting the drum tech, the guy playing the drum machine next to Dave, choose the setlist. Or is that not the drum tech :?

hope I haven't caused discord in the blur camp! I was just pointing out, a few posts up, that when Alex was asked in an a radio interview what they'd be playing at the next gig, he said he didn't know, the setlist was put together by the drum tech - the guy who looks after Dave's drums - is this Stu?
