Well I've been to Leed and London now and the bands both nights were awesome , they are a truly talented bunch of guys .
I have to say I prefer the Leeds gig so far as I'm not a fan of seated venues and had a good spot right in the centre downstairs.
Highlight apart from the Incident was hearing Russia On Ice for the first time live , an awesome piece of music.
Was great to see Nikki and Oz again as well as my partner in crime Fraser grin grin

It's off to Amsterdam now for us , I have a feeling that one will be truly rocking and a certain Mr Fripp is the warm up. wink

Just got back from CalProg cool

Saw Roine, Jonas, Nad and Lalle in the lobby of our hotel Friday afternoon! grin

Kitty and I had breakfast with Nad, Lalle and Roine at our hotel this morning! shocked Jonas must have been tired from his awesome performance last night.

Lalle was very gracious and said it felt wonderful to be in America. I thanked each of them for their contributions to progressive rock and wished them luck with all their future projects.

Last night, Roine mentioned to me that Transatlantic is considering touring next year for "Whirlwind." I suppose you could call it their whirlwind tour cheesy

Got lots of pictures to go through. I'll post them here as soon as I can.

Touchstone were awesome. I spoke with their bass player, Moo, this morning after breakfast. Great bunch of people. Kim Seviour, their vocalist, performed brilliantly.

It Bites were as I thought they would be...........great instrumentally, but not my cup of tea. There were a bunch of fan boys in the audience that made me want to puke. Every song they were up jumping around, singing every word, clapping loudly during the songs. I hated their set. Bad way to end the evening. John Mitchell and John Beck were amazing instrumentally, but I just couldn't get into their songs. They started to play "Supper's Ready" as their tribute piece and then stopped early on, John Mitchell saying "Oh screw it, we'll play one of our own." Everyone in the audience was offended big time.

Agents Of Mercy and Karmakanic were so good that I could have died after their performance and I would have died a happy man. Everyone, including Nick D'Virgilio on drums, were spot on. Amazing talent all on one stage. My wife, Kitty, even caught one of Nick's drumsticks when he threw them into the audience after the AOM set.

Goran Edman and Nad Sylvan traded off vocals and complemented each other wonderfully. Lalle Larsson on keyboards was about the best I've ever seen in concert, and I've seen plenty over my 30+ years of seeing live gigs. Jonas and Roine..........what can I say, other than they were everything I had imagined them to be. They played a lot of AOM stuff and a lot of the new Karmakanic album "Who's The Boss In The Factory." The best of the Karmakanic set would have to be "Two Blocks From The Edge" and "Where The Earth Meets The Sky." Their tribute tune (a CalProg tradition) was Genesis' "Afterglow." It gave everyone goosebumps.

All in all, a wonderful day! smiley (missed you Nov) wink

Pallas gig was pretty good but Alan Reid's vocals were drowned out at times by the guitar (which was excellent). He does not have a strong voice and he struggled at times midway through the set when his voice cracked a little. Overall he did OK but he needed his mike turned up at times - the fault of the guys on the soundboard. They kicked off with Cross and the Crucible and then For the Greater Glory. We got Blood and Roses, one song from Dreams of Men (Ghost Dancer) and a few older numbers which I don't care too much about. They also played 3 songs from the new album for the very first time but they are all at demo stage but sounded really good although the last number was pretty heavy for Pallas - thankfully it was not too long. Add in some technical issues with the keyboard (needed a completed software reboot) and it was a fun night. They even brought on their old singer, Euan Lawson, for two numbers - Arrive Alive and one other but he was drunk and to be honest they should get rid of this guy as he cannot sing and was stumbling around the stage. The band played for around 2 hours and I enjoyed the gig. Keys and guitar work were superb and Graeme on Bass was outstanding - what a sound from his Rickenbacker with all the add ons. If they had tweaked Alan's voice a bit more then the whole sound would have been even better. Alan did a lot of jumping around and is a good front man, Graeme's jokes and all round chatting was good and Nial's guitar work reminded me of The Enid one moment and Hackett the next.

Support band Abel Ganz were good and they are very much like Pallas in sound. They did not have the same sound balance that Pallas had and that made some of their music sound a little out of synch at times but overall they performend well and I also have all their albums so know what the songs should sound like. Again amazing guitar work but keyboards were lost in the mix at times. I do like the new album Shooting Albatross. They played 3 songs only but in true prog fashion they were long - the first was over 25 minutes.

Next up is BJH on 24th of this month. Good to see James T and Demo Man again.

Sorry Ned, I won't be going to BJH at either Glasgow or Perth as it clashes with my two MMEB gigs in Norway.
James T will be at Glasgow though.

Not sure whether I can be bothered to get crushed at Porcupine Tree but I do have a ticket for Steve Hackett at The Ferry, Glasgow.

Oh dear, must be getting old Demo Man - getting a little worried about being crushed at a gig grin

I will liaise with James T then but it would have been nice to have had you along for a pint and a chat - maybe next time (come to the Porkies gig with us all and we will have a nice pre-Xmas drink and catch up on stuff).
