Den Haag

Does anyone know what's going on with the Den Haag show ? the venue website is a mystery to me even in the English version. There seems to be a million acts playing and one page says sold out for the 18th. Ed Sheeran the day after is still available though... not the same I know. I used to work ther...

mx or A record errors are due to DNS servers somewhere between the sender and the recipient not syncing correctly. Just keep trying and it will resolve eventually or you can manually edit your dns to something more reliable like googles 8.8.8.8

you can't beat a dog eared hard copy of a classic tome. Probably shows my age. On a similar subject, I reckon that one day Hampshire University will run a module based on the works of Frank Turner, so to pre-empt demand I think Frank should be working on one of those books you got at school to learn...

The reason I thought Georgian sash is that in my town there is an architecturally beautiful retirement home with floor to ceiling bay windows, and every day you can see the old geezers parked there looking out at the world. Some look like gnarled old soldiers who have lived a long life to be sure. P...

My father texted me recently while at a Checkov play in the West End saying that he'd just got the relevance of the lyric "lets be 1905 and not 1917". Apparently it was explained in the program in some detail. I found Google was much easier though. We often debate the meaning of His lyrics, and my c...

I'm certainly quite happy to still be able to see Frank play the relatively small venues he plays here in the US! I get a warm smug feeling when I know I love someone's music that nobody else I meet has heard of.. always have since the late 70's. So I'm torn now because on the one hand I want Frank...

Northampton Roadmender in August this year restored my faith in music and turned me into a teenager again (and I haven't been one for 25 years :-(). Since that day I haven't listened to any other music except Frank's and I have no desire to ever see anyone else play live. I have to add that the qual...

Collaborations ?

Not very hardcore I know, but have you ever or would you ever consider doing a duet with anyone in a completely non-Disney kind of way? I would pay very large sums of money to hear you with the following for instance: Regina Spektor Missy Higgins (who? http://www.missyhiggins.com) Ellie Goulding Amy...

I'm Russ from Bucks, England. Hopeless double-bass and bluegrass banjo player and ex-BeefCurtain. Father of 3 FT fans, son of 2 more and spouse of another.

First heard FT in SoleTrader shop 2 years ago and hotfooted it down to HMV and bought everything he ever recorded. Almost.
