I was at the Coventry gig and appear to have missed the guys outside selling the unofficial tour merchandise that has been talked about on the forum.

Scarves, pin badges, poppy badges - I missed them all.

Admiteddly I was a little worse for wear before and after the gig!

Was / is any of this gear any good and if so does anybody know where we can get hold of it other than waiting for it to pop up on ebay?

Bought my fair share of offical goodies so have contributed to the band in that way.

Maths was never my strong point, but I reckon that's about 4/5 for a penny?

I saw a guy selling really nice scarves outside the Ally Pally gig and like an idiot I thought 'I'll get one on my way out'. Saw the guy again and he said that he had sold about 5 of them and then had the rest confiscated. He was still selling badges though so I bought a few of them, they were only a quid each and are really nice. When I got to Wood Green station there were some guys selling t-shirts. Some were a bit crappy but I found one that I really liked.

I was gonna get an 'official' one in the gig but noticed I could see the back of the shirt through the front on the ones hanging up! and at £20 a pop decided against it. Seen some nice ones on ebay so may plump for one of them

Like the t-shirt links italskarl. I don't think you can beat the t-shirt of the 1st album cover.
