They seem to recreate the old Ultravox sounds. And why should they do it, if not for a revival tour? wink

And only sounds from tracks on Vienna & RIE were played so it has to be a tour to support the remasters. excited

Midge is wearing the same top as he wore at the Abbey Road session.So the MU & CC meet up must have been recent.

whilst you may be correct - Midge is not royalty ( yet ) and is allowed to appear in public wearing the same clothes twice.

Yes, it proves once and for all that he plays the keys at that end of the instrument right handed, not left, as previously thought.

On a slightly more genteel point:

Could someone...anyone actually...just give us the merest hint of actual info as to what (if anything) is going on?

Y'know..a little feline / sack unleashing fest?

You know you'll feel better if you do...

And I can almost certainly guarantee a comfortable place for you in the hereafter / Nirvana / Valhalla / Middle Earth, etc...should such a plane of existence ...er...exist..

Sir.

You forget that I'm Welsh.

Professional cat-duelling (or 'Mae Chat Un Fightio' as we say in these parts) is a respectable pass-time for some..

Please remember, these are no ordinary cats either. Bred from the finest Welsh Duelling stock some of these creatures can trace their ancestry all the way back to last Wednesday.

Why, just yesterday a feline punch-up of almost Olympic proportions between current Welsh Champion Paperweight 'Ponty Slugger' and the pacifistic pretender to that title, 'Pixel The Wonder Kitten' ended in a surprising win for the newcomer when he spiked his opponents favourite fishy treats with catnip.

So I snort in derision at your claims of cruelty, insanity. Further, your implied rubbing of my nose in my race's intellectual deficiencies, lack of height and unrestricted use of Sir Tom Jones in built-up areas is completely without precedent or justification.

Sir: I bid you ta-raaaaa!

PS: for those of you of a nervous disposition, here's a cute picture of the winner just to prove all is well in the world. Ah, bless....

But I'm just thinking, didn't Warren decide to quit playing drums and make the switch to electric guitar many years ago? I read somewhere that he did but I'm not sure, can anyone clarify?

Cromlech, Sir,

Your posting has made me smile, albeit I take nothing back from my original reply. I have to say though; judging by your photo, that Tom Jones has let himself go a bit hasn't he? And I always thought he was much taller...

Stupid question: who recorded this video? Who is cambox2? First I thought it might be Berenice Hardman but this seems to be wrong.

You know, if we know who it is, we know who has to be tortured to tell us what they have spoken and why they did these excersises. evil

I agree Jesper...theres only one Warren and im sure the differences that led to Warren being asked to leave are a distant memory now...it wouldn't be the same if they got back together and Warren wasn't involved ( who's going to sing ( or talk ) on MR X if he don't agree!!!)

Warren if your lurking get those sticks dusted down and cut back on them ciggies!!! laugh

Sure he have to practice a bit, but at least, he doesn´t have to play 3-4 four hours sets of very physical drumming behind Bruce Springsteen like Max Weinberg, who´s in the same age. An Warren can probably rest a bit in numbers like "Vienna" or "Visions in blue" and other tracks with electronic percussion.

But this thread is about Chris, and why don´t we worry about forthcoming blisters on his fingers after starting rehearsing bassguitar after a very long time? laugh
