Did you get to see Pop Evil supporting? I was gutted I couldn't get to either of the London dates as I really wanted to see PE live. Great band. M

Yeah, good weekend. Far better choice of venue than last year's Rotherham site. Highlights for me were: UFO (Mogg in fabulous form!), Dynazty (powerful and energetic) Robin Beck Love/Hate (surprisingly - probably got the best reaction of anyone throughout the weekend) PC69 Cold Spell House Of Lords Tyketto (but Chris Green's guitar was too quiet in the mix, and I thought they were b

Regarding accommodation, although the venue is some miles from Milan itself, the venue offers a bus service back to Milan Central Station after the gig for 10 Euros. Details on their website here: http://www.liveclub.it/en/dove-siamo/ Seems like a good idea, particularly if local accommodation isn't readily available. M

Never heard of Sub 89 in Reading. Anyone been there? Otherwise it'll be the Electric Ballroom. Nice one! M

Agreed with Concert Queen about "Sleepy Hollow" - great entertainment, and some funny one-liners from the wonderfully named Ichabod Crane (played by Tom Mison). "Grimm" is also excellent, featuring the beautiful Bitsie Tulloch (another silly name!). Also enjoying "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D", "Arrow" and "Person Of Interest". Lots of good stuff

The Garage is a great venue. As Addyeddy says, the nearest tube is Highbury & Islington (it's directly opposite the venue) and it's very easy to get to. http://mamacolive.com/thegarage/ M

Really awful. Such a talented artist and songwriter. That Nevertheless album is a genuine classic. And of course, he co-wrote "Waiting For Love" from the Alias album. Very, very sad. M

Notice to anyone in the West London area, X-UFO (Danny Peyronel, Laurence Archer, Rocky Newton and Clive Edwards) are playing at the Tropic in Ruislip (Metropolitan or Central Line tubes nearby) this Friday night. http://www.tropicatruislip.co.uk/bands/xufo/index.htm Good band, and they play some UFO songs not usually played by Mogg & Co. Worth a visit. Martin

I flew over from the UK for the Inzell Hi Rock. From the moment I arrived on Friday evening, it rained heavily for the next 48 hours. Saturday went fine - Journey and Whitesnake were both better than at Wembley a few days previously; Europe were exceptional; H.E.A.T too. It was all good. I turned up on the Sunday, already soaking wet from the short walk from my hotel, at around 4pm expectin

That Brett Walker album is absolute genius. "Hard To Find An Easy Way" and "Lecia" are worth the purchase price alone. Stunning album. M

I went last night to the O2 Arena show. Both bands were very good - Chad in particular has a great rapport with the audience. Hopefully you'll have okay seats. I must admit, I was so far from the stage at the O2 Arena that I felt totally disengaged from the gig. It was like watching a DVD. Add to that the cost of refreshments - £4.60 for a Coca-Cola - and some arseholes in the crowd who

Going to see him tonight at the Electro-werkz in Islington (a new venue for me). Saw him last time, too - be interesting to see how it compares. Love his songwriting. M

It offers an opportunity to go to the bar/toilet etc - that's about the only thing it's got going for it, in my opinion. I assume it's a vanity thing for MJ to show his vocal "prowess". He shouldn't - it's a travesty that they still include it when there are dozens and dozens of better songs out there that are overlooked. M

Absolutely. You can really see where the great Max Martin started his craft with It's Alive. Those great pop melodies that spawned hits for Britney and co are all there on Earthquake Visions, just wrapped in a tasty funk-metal package. Genius - one of my favourite albums of all time. M

I came across these demos on YouTube recently. They feature ex-Deep Machine and Strutt personnel, Tony Coldham (formerly Smith) and Paul Smith. Also Steve Rodford (who has a strong pedigree including The Zombies and 80s UK AOR band, Rio) adds keys and drums. They're pretty good quality - nice hooks, strong vocals. Pretty impressive stuff: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rGEk40K_tUY&feat

I believe they're mixing it currently, according to Pete Jupp's Facebook updates. I'd guess we'll see something before year-end. M

Thanks for that, Tom. Love Ingram Hill - "June's Picture Show" is an absolute classic album. It does p*ss me off when US bands charge silly money for overseas posting - I can't remember who it was, but recently I tried to order a CD from a band's website and was going to be charged $24 for UK shipping! WTF! For that money, I'd expect a hand delivery!! M

I remember hearing the opening little widdly bit to "Saviours..." in Rock It! in Croydon when the album came out; and then BAM! - the riff blows you away. Still adore that album to this day. M

Yes, they're playing Bush Hall in September (18th, I think) - but I don't think Serpentine are support for that one. M
