    I saw Focus last year and they were, on the whole, excellent. TV Leer's expansive gut is no impediment to his organ work (fnaar fnaar). I never saw any of the 70s line ups (the live rainbow LP is a perennial favourite of mine) but this version ain't too shabby at all.
    I missed a bit of Hocus Pocus at the gig though, as that provided me with the opportunity to go and pinch a Roy poster (he was playing a couple of weeks later at the same venue) while everyone else was leaping around. It was like being 17 again!

    I will see them again on the 30th.

    the next gig for me is an evening of Hawkwind cover bands at the Fighting Cocks in Kingston (the on Thames one) on Sat 25th Oct.

    on the subject of the fruitmarket-do any of the older folks remember a shortish series of gigs from there some years back....80's maybe...? must've been on the bbc-can't remember the name of the programme.

    i remember chris rea doing an amazing set there in one of the shows. first time i'd seen/heard what he could REALLY do (amaaaazing slide guitar player, imo)..

    I don't know that series, but would love to know more if anyone else does! It's a great venue... saw Nick there supporting Mary Coughlan last time he played Celtic Connections, and post-renovation I saw KT Tunstall's fab album launch gig there last year :biggrin: Think that's where Chris is seeing Shooglenifty in January, it's a big Celtic Connections venue...

    The next gig I am going to is....

    ...to walk downstairs and play the guitar! Sorry I've been dying to say that for a while!

    Actually it's quite nice playing to yourself without distractions from people in the audience. All that drunken ribaldrous heckling from lunatics is anathematic to me.

    Peace brothers / sisters [ :icon_bs: ] is what I aspire to. Go there now if you can.. I dare you....
