Has Cockwork Angles been thoroughly parodised [sic] yet?


I'm not sure that Fishey & Jonners have played it enough to be familiar with the tunes... ::)

I would feel very let down if they never played a few farewell shows in the uk without announcing they were the last beforehand.

Aye.  Bait and switch.  Oldest trick in the book.

Aren't the remaining shows virtual sellouts though?

It'll be a bummer if this is the final tour and I don't get a chance to see it, especially given the mouthwatering setlist. But at least they've given some of the fans the opportunity to "lose it" one last time.

I'd certainly rather it finished that way than with the likes of REM announcing out of the blue they were finishing, or for it to end the way Yes have done so tragically this week.

Cant bring myself to do it. Parodies are easier with a tune you can easily recognise, or at the very least a tune
The new songs are an abomination

Is that Derren Reddick or what ever he's called? I wouldn't grant him much credibility.

He's a huge fan, and has interviewed Alex and GED on PR.

I wouldn't be so hasty to dismiss him - as Zoony says Darren is a huge fan, and has met the band both professionally via PR duties but also as a paying fan through meet and greets.

He always tries to get a Rush track on his playlist each day - lol, he's the reason Karen has turned a corner and rekindled her enjoyment of Rush.

Of course he could be working with duff info, but imho he's a professional when it comes to his day job, and I doubt he would knowingly spread unfounded gossip. I didn't catch the broadcast but Karen did, and Darren did caveat his comments, but it was enough for Karen to drop her work and text me, and she's far less impressionable than I am.

Let's wait and see...........

I'm aware he's a fan, I just don't think he's very good. Then again, I've not listened to PR for a long time, its playlist is about as limited as a local pop station.
