Very very glad to report that normal service has been resumed!!

The band absolutely smashed it last night. Maybe the best gig of all the times I've seen them. Never seen as many smiley faces on stage and off. Atmosphere in the Olympia was just electric.

Whatever gremlins were in the works on Monday night were well and truly banished. Sound & lights show were perfect and each & every member played a complete blinder.

Thought the day couldn't get better when I bumped into Lynval heading to the soundcheck, then I'm sitting in the bar pre gig and Roddy saunters over with his pint of Guinness and sits down for a chinwag. What an absolute down to earth gent, you could not meet a friendlier fella.

PS can't get out of bed this morning, it's a young mans game following this band I think.

PPS get ready UK & US - you are in for an absolute treat. Smile Smile

Cheers John I was looking for you to pass on the wristband to get you up front but couldn't see you or your mate, I thought he would have been waving his crutches in time with the music Very Happy

Ah thanks but we got in anyway cos he was on the crutches. He still managed to move a bit even with the crutches would say he is definitely feeling the pain today. Nothing was gonna ruin a gig like that Very Happy

Concrete Jungle from 7/5/13

Two great nights, 2nd night definitely better but great to get both encores
Great atmosphere at The Olympia and beforehand in The Foggy Dew and The Turks Head with DJ Del Bionic and 2 great aftershows with The Explojans and Bionic Rats
Maybe the last chance we had to see them together though
