Great gig last night in Manchester. I was looking forward to Moon Safari mainly,but only got there half hour into their set due to an early start time and terrible traffic in Manchester.

Moon Safari were excellent as I expected but I was very impressed with Lazuli too. I'm thinking of going to Bilston tomorrow to watch them again

Next gig for me looks like Steven Wilson in Cambridge in March cool


Just booked my ticket for this - was lucky to get one as I didn't realise how quickly it would sell out!! Ended up with a seat in row Z and there are very few seats left.

Really looking forward to The Robin gig, on Sunday. Would pay the 15 just to see Moon Safari, so Lazuli will be a bonus wink

Not often that I'm disappointed by a gig but last night didn't live up to my expectations. When I saw Moon Safari last year, their songs were fresh and vibrant. I bought Himlabacken Vol. 1 and really enjoy listening to it. I encouraged a lot of people to see this gig but Moon Safari only played 3 songs from Himlabacken and 3 of their others were over 20 minutes long! Their harmonies were as glorious as ever but they got bogged down in "noodling" and more than a little "rock star posing" (Simon being the worst culprit, by far). It seemed a strange choice of set for a double-header, IMHO.

Lazuli were a very pleasant surprise and I much preferred their set and their style of playing, even though I knew nothing of their music. I'd gone to the gig, fully intending to buy more Moon Safari CD's but came away with a Lazuli DVD instead wink.

I understand that the promoters of these particular shows put a lot of time and effort into organising them but I think that Lazuli were hard done by. MS played from 8.00 until 9.40 then Lazuli had to change the stage set-up and played from 10.10 until 11.40. Of the @ 250 who were there for MS, a good number left before Lazuli started and there were only @ 80 left at the end. Many, like some of our friends, had to leave around 11.00, due to work (next day), travel etc. A double-header starting at 8.00 on a Sunday should have been 80 minutes each, at most.

Well said, Steve! I got really fed up half way through MS's set. I thought it was all very samey, complicated time signatures for the sake of them and a case of prog for prog's sake! I was wondering what all the fuss was about! They played for far too long and milked it.

Lazuli, on the other hand, were absolutely superb!

Absolutely spot on, as always Steve. I was one of those who left at 11:00 purely as I had work to do when I got back and was unsure how long the Lazuli set would go on for (bearing in mind how long Moon Safari had played for!!). On hindsight, wish I had stayed until the end - but at 15 for the ticket, I certainly don't feel short-changed!

You did miss a real treat with their encore, Sue...they carried the large xylophone to the front of the stage and all 5 of them played it, together, brilliantly. After a few minutes the music segued into Solsbury Hill...it was a really innovative and fun way to end the evening grin
