I saw them on that run last year, and you're right Woody. However if they could broaden their audience, their songs are strong enough to appeal to a wider audience. Perpetual gigs in front of 50+ aged blokes can only take the band so far.
They're a difficult band to guide - too poppy for the Download brigade, rock too hard for the big mainstream festivals. Another example of an act who could do well with the sort of exposure that the BBC affords to the Bolivian pan pipe duos etc, who dominate Jools Holland's national TV show. Absolute disgrace that for 20 years the show has ignored commercially successful acts like Thunder and failed to occasionally offer a platform to UK hard rock bands.
