I am sure everyone on the forum appreciates the time and effort it took to make the videos and photos accessible to all.

Thanks much Brian.

Cheers Maryanne,

My videos cant do them justice,they do a damn good job.

Only track that I thought needed improvent was Lament.

The FoxxVox stuff sounds just like the MidgeVox versions I have a copy of somewhere.

There you go Ken,thats my review!

Well you could have done a bit more Brian. smile

From the setlist to the video clips, it looks like the gigs are improving each show.

Would have liked to have heard the Foxxvox tracks at the time, especially
'Hiroshima Mon Amour' as i dont think the've done that one before.

Wish i had been there even more now.....

Great clips though, and thanks for the review.

Thanks Brian for uploading the videos.

It all sounds great but Hiroshima is a particular favourite of mine. Davy - that bass is excellent, really deep and loud. From what I heard that was an excellent version lads, nice one.

Sorry I missed the gig. I promise I will see you one day. It will probably have to be a weekend for me though. smile

Cheers Guys.

I think my fave from the night was We stand alone followed by the 3 Foxxvox tunes.

We atdn alone was good enough to make me start playing Rage in Eden again,its been a few years since I heard it.

I'm sure I've not remembered the whole set list.
Did they do Mine for Life & Man of 2 Worlds as well?

Can someone who went please correct me.

Cheers Mike,great night.

I'll try & bring re-inforcements next time.

Thursday night is a difficult night to get people out though.The M6 was a complete bitch that night as well,took me nearly 2 hours to get 10 miles.
Would have hung back after the show but I had a long drive back to Tamworth.

I think I may have missed a track or 2 when I went to the bar.

Thanks again to Chris Curran & his wife for keeping me company all night.

Still notable by its absence was Thin Wall,I'm hopeful for next time.

Brian

Well done chaps - top gig and the usual quiet and thoughtful aftershow for the benefit of Travelodge guests !! bemused

I really enjoyed the gig and good to see the set evolving (although a shame that The Thin Wall didn't make it this time icky ). Especially excellent was Mike's beatbox on Vienna eek

Great to catch up with the Monument hordes before and after and please do it again soon.

Don, I'll be in touch soon.

Ciao

Thomas

Thanks for alll the positive comments folks.

Mike, thanks for the bass comments....

Brian - if we inspired you to dust down and listen to RIE then we must be doing something right.. It's funny, I enjoy playing the RIE songs although they were thought as the most difficult to reproduce.

Cheers to all, Davy

Still to confirm the 29th Nov in Greenock.
