Awesome show indeed - and some interesting rumours at breakfast in the hotel about who might be lined up for FF5! Well done to Kieran and everyone else involved for finally getting the payback of a enthusiastic full house. Highlights for me were Valentine, Tyketto and FM. I was just blown away by Hugo's voice, and I've just watched the video I made of them again before I put it on Youtube, and e

Yeah, I mentioned on another thread that Steve Murphy, the drummer with Company Of Wolves, is the drummer for the Alan Parsons Live Project now....and a damn fine job he does too. http://www.murphonics.com/bio.htm

Really impressed with what I've heard so far (just got it yesterday). Need to let the tracks sink in before I write down my final thoughts.. Thanks Andrew for the really speedy service, and a great job as usual on the presentation side. Like Hugo's comments about his track - poor old Gerard; I'd be gutted too!!

Thanks for the reply Ted. I've got everything Yes has ever done too - I'd be quite happy listening to Jon Anderson singing the phone book. It's kind of a pity really that Trevor Rabin is making so much money from soundtracks these days (although he probably doesn't think so!), or else we might get another solo album out of him. It's been waaayy too long since "Can't Look Away", although

Thanks for the reply Lec! Yeah, I saw APP live around the same time as you (1996) in London, which was pretty much the nucleus of the original studio band (with Ian Bairnson on guitar). Since around 2000, when Alan moved over to the States, he got a new US-based band together. To be honest, I think the new band sounds a lot more 'dynamic' live than before, and I've seen them play in London, Barce

Nottingham is the Bermuda Triangle of the Midlands. After Firefest 2, we swore we knew the way to Rock City for No.3, but could we find it? 30 minutes on the Friday night walking round in circles with no sign of the place. It's like the bloomin' Twilight Zone that city...(mind you, we'd started early in the hotel bar that day...)

"Two other songs I'm burning to cover are The Alan Parsons Project's "Sirius" and Dakota's "Runaway" and I want the former to run into the latter instead of "Eye in the Sky." But at the same time, I also have lots of new originals that I'm very excited about." Hi Lec, I went over to your webpage and tried out the samples after reading Andrew's review. Very

As I said below, he did a great job with Alan Parsons last Saturday in Amsterdam. Was going to go and watch him in Birkenhead this coming weekend, but unfortunately can't make it up north now....

I'd like to see Honeymoon Suite (didn't know about The Gods shows, goshdarnit) or John Parr for the main day. Black 'n' Blue would be good too. It'd be nice to see Brian Spence on the Friday as well.

Just got back from Amsterdam at the weekend to see Alan Parsons in concert - fantastic! BUT, it was a real eye opener to see Kip Winger walk out for the main vocals. I knew that Kip fronted the band for a short while around 4 years ago, but due to scheduling problems couldn't make it permanent. Then AP brought in PJ Olsson, and he's been out front since then. Anyone know if Kip is back for more

The movie "The Wraith" (Charlie Sheen) is on BBC1 tomorrow night in the UK (Monday). Dunno how good or bad the movie is, but I think Andrew was right to put it in the 'killer soundtrack' list.... Honeymoon Suite, Stan Bush, Tim Feehan, Lion and Ozzy, amongst others!

Carl, Jimmy Hahn (or Haun or Houn, depending on which sleeve notes you read!) played some guitar on the Yes album "Union" and the Jon & Vangelis album "Page Of Life" (especially on the track, "Is It Love?"), the Kitaro/ Jon Anderson album "Dream", and I THINK he was with Air Supply for a while.....

I've got flyers left after the REO show, and now I'm wondering where I can distribute the rest. I've put loads up at work, but the only gigs I've got coming up before Firefest are Alan Parsons the week after next (but that's over in Amsterdam), or Fish who's playing at the Exeter Arts Centre. I might try that, but I know those proggy types of old. They can be really sniffy about anything that's n

This'll be good, we need to hear more about wombats on the radio! Unfortunately I'm away this weekend. Any chance that Steve and Andrew can arrange to have this uploaded to MR-X?

There's the 2005 remaster of Aina's "Living In A Boys World" (1988). Great female hi-tech AOR. (Samples at http://www.mtm-music.com/start.php )

Told you! Also, Geoff Dugmore's (the drummer from "Brothers") previous band was "The Europeans", which is probably most famous for being Steve Hogarth's pre-Marillion band.

I was surfing the web last night and came across a website dedicated to Brian Spence. They've put most of his deleted albums on the site available for free download, including his 1986 album, "Brothers", which I thought was a great AOR album, and deserved to be huge at the time. There's also tons of promotional material, and links to Brian's regular gig dates in and around London....

Couldn't agree more. There are those of us who jump at the chance of getting to a festival like this, but as Daren says, there's an apathy out there that's hard to fight against. Feel really sorry for Daren.

It looked like plasma was going to win out 2 years ago, as LCD has problems with contrast and poor response times. Looks like they've fixed that though, as I've got a new Samsung HD LCD with 15000:1 contrast ratio, and 8ms response time. It's excellent! Another big reason why you're starting to see more LCDs than plasmas in the shops now is the power consumption. Plasmas suck more power than bot
