Re: Get Better film

With the DVD release finally upon us, here are the Things I've Learned From Get Better: 1. Bundles never arrive on release day. As I have the patience of a fruit fly, I caved and bought another copy from my local HMV instead. This behaviour may explain why I own multiple copies of every CD, book and...

Re: Lost Evenings

Trying to gather my thoughts as I sit half-asleep on the train home - what a weekend. While there were so many highlights - the incredible set lists, the fantastic supports (Marwoooooood in particular was phenomenal, as always), the onstage storytelling, Frank's truly epic crowd-surfing lap of honou...

Re: Lost Evenings

Nothing crossed off my list last night but the set was fantastic and the slower acoustic version of Live Fast Die Old was just beautiful - I love the original but this was brilliant. Great night all round - I can't wait to do it all again tonight. (The only downer to the evening: am I getting old or...

Re: Lost Evenings

Last night's set list looked incredible - had I have been there, I'd have crossed off six of the 17 songs left on my Never Heard Live list. Bloody wedding. But I'm racing up to London as we speak and hope to make up for lost time over the next two days. Crossing everything crossable for Cowboy Chord...

Re: Lost Evenings support

DAY. MADE.

I can't wait for this. Is it wrong to be more excited for Lost Evenings - or at least the half I can get to - than I am for my brother's wedding that weekend (obviously I'm asking hypothetically, if he happens to see this . . .)

Re: Lost Evenings support

Gutted to miss the first two nights of Lost Evenings (especially with today's Chris T-T news) but . . . that Monday line-up is damn near perfect. Wow. I'm guessing (hoping) stage times will be staggered but I doubt we'll be able to see all six acts, however fast we run between them. Can we arrange a...

Re: And we're back in the room (sort of) . . .

Thank you :)

It's been a while - where to even start? The Lost Evenings line-up! The triumphant return of Ben Marwood! The cryptic Mongol Horde tweet! My wholly unnecessary use of exclamation marks!

And we're back in the room (sort of) . . .

It looks like we still can't add comments to the forum directly, but it seems to work via the Tapatalk app if people want a workaround. Fun though the FTA FB page can be, I've now seen enough llama pictures to last me a lifetime so hopefully the forum pages will be up and running again soon! Sent fr...

Re: A Cat Named Virtute

An excellent read - it makes such a difference when an interviewer has a genuine interest in the subject of the interview. Winter Wheat has fast become one of my all-time favourite albums. Five months on and I still keep finding new lyrical twists and subtleties I hadn't spotted previously. I'm craz...

John K Samson UK tour!

This is not a drill, people! According to his Facebook page, he'll be touring the U.K. with the Winter Wheat in the middle of May, with tickets on sale from 2 Feb. There's a real risk I might spontaneously combust with excitement. With the Skinny Lister tour and Lost Evenings/ FrankFest too, I shoul...

Re: Blink 182

Very exciting - and I just managed to bag tickets for Bournemouth, despite it being advertised as sold out.

Everything's coming up Milhouse!

Re: show 2000

Today's the day: HAPPY 2000th BIRTHDAY* FRANK! It's the final day of the Turner Triathlon today. After the film on Tuesday (beautiful) and a truly blistering show in Portsmouth last night (where I finally got to hear A Love Worth Keeping live - thank you Frank!), it's time to make the road trip up t...

Re: Lost Evenings

I knew I wouldn't be able to resist - tickets secured for Sensible Sunday and, unless the boffins can invent teleportation in the next five months, I'll be breaking land speed records to get there from my brother's wedding weekend. So if you see someone in the crowd still in a wedding outfit, don't ...

Re: Lost Evenings

Looks utterly amazing.

Sadly I can't persuade my brother to move his wedding to a different weekend so I can go to this instead. The selfish sod.

Get Better film

And the Mystery of the Missing Show is solved!

This sounds amazing. If it doesn't have the production quality, acting skills and dramatic plot twists of Murder on the Tour Bus Express, I'll be most disappointed. The bar was set high with that one . . .
