Because I think they're the best live band in the fucking universe? 100% serious.
Shows? All of em.

Guess it depends what you want from your support band. If you want a very serious music experience then I guess someone lke Ben Marwood or George Frakes ticks the box. If you want the crowd warmed up ahead of the main act then I reckon you can't go wrong with a Koo/Larry and his Flask type act.

At the end of the day FT is the only gig where I make a real effort to get there in time for the support. Some I've liked, some I really haven't, but it's great to know that Frank seriously considers who to invite.

Fair comment Frank :D I guess everybody just sees things differently. We have been happy to see many great supports to yourselves over the years (Jim Lockey would be nice again sometime :wink: ) but this one just went over my head i guess.
To the main act though. Yet another brilliant performance and some of the new stuff was mouthwatering. Cheers to you all!!!

Whilst I've yet to see them live, I've had a watch on YouTube and think they look absolutely brilliant. It's obviously a matter of taste but it can get very boring seeing two or three very similar acts in a row. Can't remember who the insane act supporting in St. Albans was a while back but I went from total indifference to really enjoying it. Had it been another acoustic act, particularly one that had supported frank several times prior, I'd have undoubtedly been bored and at the bar, a recipe for disaster for all involved.

Hugely looking forward to Friday.

To be honest, this whole hype about Koo Koo Kanga Roo is starting to irritate me. All I have heard about the shows so far is negative remarks about the band, when in reality most of the people who actually took the time to listen to them just played maybe 30 seconds of the first video they could find on YouTube and immediately put the band down. It's okay to not like them, but to complain simply at the fact that they are on tour with a band you're into is outright stupid. You don't like the support act? Fine. Be respectful and sit through it, or head over to the bar.

Obviously I'm not talking about everyone, but seeing this post made me want to say something, especially after meeting Neil and Bryan and hanging out for a little bit. They are awesome people and it sucks to see everyone talking badly about them.

I have been to many shows and have seen a variety of bands, and Koo Koo Kanga Roo are one of the best live performances I have seen. They bring so much energy into the room, and they literally have everyone on their feet and having a great time. I would definitely see them again, and I'd buy my ticket specifically to see them. I would be more than happy to put the devil horns down for a day and scream my favorite color. I'm seriously jealous of you guys in the UK right now. I would LOVE to be able to attend one of the shows. I guess for most people it's, "You have to see them live to understand" and I'm sure you've all heard that several times already. You really should give them a chance. You should give every band a chance, god damn it.

Whoever is going to the shows, have a fucking blast :D

Also would like to add in that I wasn't trying to be cunty, so if I came off that way then I apologize.

Whilst I can see they are fun live, I couldn't really get into it and I think the novelty would wear off after a few times of seeing them. I don't know if I was put off a bit by everyone giving off "you will like them and if you don't then you must be a moron" vibes. Or maybe it's because I was pretty tired and didn't have much energy due to 5am alarms and long days at work, I didn't feel like I woke up until mid-way through The Road.

There is a weird thing that people expect a support to be like the main band. A sort of FT Lite, What is the point?

Much better to have someone who does something slightly different but does it really well.

Looking forward to seeing Koo Koo in Oxford.

I really don't get why people are complaining about a support band. What the hell is wrong with you? Don't watch if you don't like them. The end.

Well I can't wait to see them tomorrow night, regression to childhood is always welcome, especially for an old fart like me. However my husband has decided to prop the bar up while they are on, miserable old git.

I laughed away watching it, seems like fun. I think being lubricated with alcohol would help some get into the swing of things. Currently looking at hotels in Bath so I can do just that.
Weather you like them or not, they're the most talked about support Franks had recently

They seem to be a love 'em or hate 'em act. The comment that I saw somewhere else that irritated me was that people only like them because Frank does. I don't know about everyone else, but I'm sitting here next to my stack of history books in my Ernie Ball t-shirt, sipping a whiskey and wondering how anyone could even think that.
