Now I have seen and heard everything so far. GREAT! I especially liked "Sleepwalk" and "All Stood Still"!

From the pictures I like those the most:
Citrus 2 (nice difference between Mike in blue and Don in red)
Citrus 10
Citrus 15 (quite menacing)

Greenock 3 (great light)
Greenock 10 (the light seems to come out of the Yamaha)
Greenock 11
Greenock 13
Greenock 18 (suspense in the air wink )
Greenock 20 (the room reminds me of a scenery from David Lynch. Ari, when there's time please tell me some secrets of photography!!)

Mike: great guitar! Now that I've seen all the pics I also see that she (the guitar) is not grey but gold. Your wife has a very good taste!

A Martin Fry signature edition wink .

In Flensburg there's a book and comic shop. Last year I was there with my brother and it really felt as if we were part of a scene in e.g. "Twin Peaks" or "Mulholland Drive". No-one else was in the shop, only the dealer himself and his mum. He read some comics and his mum sat at the opposite side of the table and was telling weird stories to her son who didn't seem to listen. And everything else was totally quiet.
It was quite disturbing....
bemused

By the way, Mike: what effects did You use? "Only" single Boss-Effects or also a multieffect?

CONGRATULATIONS I have been listening the Monument Live tracks. You are doing very good work. I wish haven't seen your gigs, but thanks for those tracks. Maby one small day smile I would see your concert...
Hey!!! Visions in Blue, Sleepwalk and Slow Motion are super !!!! But the rest I also like. I'm waiting for more live tracks !!!!! I saw your photos. If I would be on your concert I would think "The Reunion..." wink .
I wonder what is the Foxx-era second song?
Really great band!!!!

All the best

Sly

Sly, if i understand you correctly, you ask, what was the second song after Slow Motion????? the bass drum intro is for Quiet Men, played live , BUT, with some over critical 'howlers', well, not exactly 'howlers', but, wee deviances from the original. Or, what we call in the trade as, 'Jazz Chords'.......

**** Our version of Quiet Men was based 0n John Foxx's Dominion Theatre, London, 21st October 1983 version. Or, was that the Lyceum, London on the 11th November 1983 ???? John?? Denis, answers on a postcard ...................................................

Don't sweat it Don, if I remember rightly, when recording "Monument", howlers were pretty much the order of the day. (except for Warren, now that I think about it)It's amazing what a can of fairy dust and a day in Air Studios can do for a live recording.

As an aside, I've got to congratulate Ari on his fabulous photography. I wish someone had caught a snap of him when he was working away in front of the stage at Edinburgh. I've never seen anyone so happy at work. His face was a picture of pure elation. Nice one Ari!!

Thanks everyone for nice comments about photos I did. It was absolutely my pleasure.

Mike, Davy.... Now you see what I was saying previously; if Iīd sent photos for you (monument) to choose, before posting them here, you would be still choosing them.... lmao

Danny.... thanks for you kind word....you are very right. I love my work a lot. Besides photography is also my hobby, so I am very lucky to have job I can practice both at the same time.
But Monument gig in Citrus, well, I started to "enjoy" my day about midday, was very exited about gig and maybe worked "too professional" if ya know what I mean laugh Shooting something like Monument is real pleasure...
But shooting something like CEO of big company who is not used to pose in front of the camera in his dull looking office and he (in 99 % case) refuses to left his office and the story is going to be 6 page long in magazine.....then my job is something else... wink

Dex....I indeed photographed Global Citizen as well in Greenock. I spoke to them also, and promised to sent some photos.... and I will. I have a few cracking ones of them, they had quite visual expression....

So I have been very silent for past week. My life is turning upside down, canīt focus anything right now (except my job - kind of have to focus wink )

Cheers, ari

Nils,
I only used BOSS 'stomp-box' effects at these gigs, although I wasn't happy with the distortion sound - I need something which can sustain and have controllable feedback. Ordinarily I would use the overdrive on my amp, but the new guitar has more powerful pickups which scream before I hit a note...so I have some searching to do.... smile

There's the possibility of a stack of some multieffects. I have a Yamaha FX500 multieffect and since few weeks also a Boss ME-6 multieffect. I've switched them in a row, so that I can use the second effect unit on a "pre-mixed" sound. When both units deliver distorted sound the result is..... strongly distorted laugh . Of course there has to be some altering in the settings to avoid feedback and noises. And there's no possibility of getting a straight, "clear" distortion. It's some kind of overload, it might sound a bit washed. But fat...... wink . And I nearly have recreated the "DWTIME" sound. But somehow Midge seems to play "real" chords there, no powerchords. I haven't got the sound for real chords yet... .

I think Danny may remember the setup and the stuff Midge had back then? There was a talk about it in this thread:

Nils - the boys have decided to put more Citrus Club recordings up only on request, but have agreed to putting up Ari's whole recording of Greenock. I'll try to do that later! wink
