See you there Ron! Are you stopping over or driving back? Did you stop at the venue last time - if so what was it like?

I have indeed stayed at the venue Chris and it is a decent stop. Rooms are basic but clean and the bed was a blessed thing after an evening of progging out. Unfortunately I will be driving back afterwards as we are working the next day so i'll have to go easy on the sauce. No danger to your "God of pintage" status. :) See you Sunday.

Have yet to see them with "the new guy", so will be there Sunday night. Will not be drinking as I'm driving, but it will be the first time I've seen them or LVS at the Robin when I haven't been on 6-2 shift on Monday. On nights next week  :).

A very enjoyable evening at The robin last night, Bravado were their usual entertaining self, and "the new guy" was impressive even though for the second set he was wearing some very dodgy trousers! Great to see and catch up with fellow TNMSers, Terrberr, Captain Ron, Red Star, Fred Barchetta, and a very well oiled ARH. There was nothing on the set list after GUP, and it was a delight to see Red Star's joy as they played a good chunk from CoS. Me, Red Star and his good friend Jim had a laugh after the show when we went foraging for food, and after declining anything from what looked like the dodgiest kebab house in the midlands, settled for a 24hr Maccies. I dropped them back off at the gig venue where they were staying, and I got home at 2-15am. Top night.

Nice to see people had a good time. I was thinking of going to this one but in the end couldn't get cover for my weekend oncall responsibility. I will go and see them again before too long I'm sure.

I've only seen the new version of the band once and I will say that I didn't enjoy Neil's approach quite as much as Paul's, on that occasion. I am defiantly not saying that one is better than the other; they are both conspicuously talented players. But Paul's choices of tone and effects especially were generally a bit more sympathetic to my own Rush-musical sensibilities than Neil's were that night. I also found Neil's penchant for onstage larking around a shade distracting, though I'm sure others will have taken some enjoyment in them. Again, a matter of taste.

I see they're on at Real Time Live on Friday which is a cracking little venue. I may go.
