    What did you make of that? I wasnt a bit impressed with Todd Rundgren's Johnson. I wasnt one of those booing but it was pretty rubbish. Wizard was great though. I think i might have preferred it if he played it as more of a straight band thing with less of the pantomime and not had the band members doing lead vocals because he had to run off and change costume again but thats a fairly minor gripe when it was all so silly and entertaining. Highlights for me were Zen Archer, Is It My Name (or whatever its called) and a few others too probably. The band were excellent, i was suprised how close to the original it sounded.

    bigchris Aye lad, I knew you had it in you

    just heard that Jonn Gomm is playing down the road from work tomorrow in Bracknell ( with two other guitarists that I've never heard of - Byron Johnston and John Dignam ), so it would be rude not to pay a visit and give the fellow yorkshireman some support !!

    I have two JG tracks on my ipod, and they're not too bad - I have no idea how I came about them though :biggrin: perhaps they descended from someone posting something here... you maybe ??? Enjoy the night.

    Not quite the next gig, but my husband has just cheered me up after a horrible week with news that we have 2 front row seats for Crosby Stills & Nash in Glasgow this July :willy_nilly: :biggrin: I love that man...

    Probably First Aid Kit in London tomorrow. Then THE TWANG - yee hah!:cheers2: - at the Borderline in London on March 13 (can't believe they are playing there - it is tiny and the dressing room is no bigger than a large cupboard!).

    Venus infers...........

    Tonight, it's John Cale at the Royal Festival Hall doing one of those "let's play a whole elpees worth of tunes in one gig" gigs.

    In this case, Paris 1919

    I can't see you letting a little thing like work get in yer way, Trav :D

    Well, since I don't see myself getting to see anyone over here (I took Mom to an local "pub" the other night and we saw her friend play for a while, but it was more to destress than gig!), my next gig will be Justin Currie on the 18th, just down the road from my house, then Nick at Union Chapel :biggrin:

    :D Well, if we finish before 22:30 maybe I can get a bus, if not it's an all nighter... or a 17 mile night hike across the Downs.

    (I just realised that I might be able to get a taxi, always the last thing to cross my mind! :D :rolleyes:)

    A crapload of gigs in the next 2 weeks (including Nick, Glenn, the Charlatans, the Brian Jonestown Massacre and Justin Currie), but first Flight of the Conchords in Manchester - it's business time! :D

    Villagers at Bush Hall. Eagerly anticipated by moi as the album, Becoming A Jackal, is one of my two current non-stop-players (along with Stornoway). And for the Sunday Times to give it a 4* review and call it 'a beautiful and remarkable debut', Mr O'Brien must be doing something right!
