Anything is possible.

Everything isn't fixed after all then. At least not in Handsome World.

Having regard to the history of flux of the Susans and the annual Snarski vs Snarski tournament, can we expect a few preliminary bouts in the London ring? Snarski vs Lee and Kakulas vs Ellis perhaps? ;)

I can't come to the Barbican gig as my work won't let me have the night off  :(

A doctor's sick note for Triffiditis or, better still as an oppportunity to use the word, Calenture? :)

Assuming that you are not a doctor yourself Rich, my recent experience as an employer suggests that it is not unheard of for a GP to be prepared to sign you off more or less on demand - "terminal melingering" perhaps?

I hope there may be a plan to record the shows you do on this tour (audio/? video) for us poor souls who will miss them.
The Pixies had a novel idea - to make their live shows from their recent tour available for purchase. see http://www.doolittlelive.com/
Certainly a great idea for the obsessional fan!!

It is indeed a nice idea but not really feasible on a production such as ours that operates on a small budget.

What about digitalising the mixing tape from the soundboard. People seem to do it all the time on Dimeadozen. With all the shows you are doing you would be guaranteed of getting a good version of each song. Then perhaps list them for download on the website. Obviously you could/?should charge for the songs. What do you say....!!!!

If that is not going to happen at least keep the copies of the soundboard tapes in case you do decide to do something with them at a later stage.

or make 'em available for the good guys on this board  ;)
the 2006 Hasselt and Amsterdam shows were taped and "distributed" on cdr.
walls so thin I can almost hear them breathing

The Barbican would own the rights I'm pretty sure. There would have to be some sort of deal in place.

That seems pretty bizarre. A band plays a gig somewhere and the venue owns the right to the sound created?

Is that standard practice? If so, since when?
This could be heaven; shallow spreads of ordered lawns.

Same thing with Sydney Festival, it is fairly standard that some kind of deal should be in place to sell recording of shows. Having said that...we do plan to record at least from the desk and I'll see what the situation actually is re use of this recording.

As I write you can't buy a ticket to the Barbican show for love nor money. This is the message on their website:

You can still book tickets by contacting our Box Office on 020 7638 8891
Box Office phones are open 9am to 8pm Mon - Sat, 11am to 8pm Sun & Bank Holidays.

Thank you for your interest in the Barbican.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause and please do try again later.

Rail strikes looming too.....snow and gales......and the living is easy :)

This article was in this weeks edition of X-Press (Thurs, 1st April)
It is about a local band involved in the gig
