Thanks for posting all the fab pictures everyone.

I'm so glad you all enjoyed it !!

I absolutely knew that they would live up to all my hype over the past year or so.

How lucky are we to see a band like that in a venue that cosy?

Hope to see a few of you on Dec 1st wink

Great pics Nikki and Jo , it was an unforgettable night made all the better with the fabulous company.
Piers is a top man as well , a lovely bloke.
i just want to say thanks to Nov for introducing me to this band and discovering some wonderful music. I am lucky in that I have many more albums to explore yet , starting with Stardust today. tongue

Oh and Jo Nikki is right , you should do stand up , you are hilarious. grin grin

No probs Gooner.

It's my pleasure mate!

I've just started listening to "Stardust" in the car today. It really is a work of immense prog quality. It's easy to overlook the beautiful little tracks in-between the epics but they or gorgeous as well.

As Fraser mentioned on Sunday, "Circus Brimstone" takes a bit of getting used to but it develops into a great prog instrumental. It's a bit hard work to start with but grows over time.

To me, "Stardust" is every inch the prog classic that "Foxtrot" or "Fragile" are. It's is worth the money alone for the title track, "Church Of Your Heart" and "In The Eyes Of The World". Those 3 tracks alone would have made a totally classic early 70s LP. Imagine a Flower Kings gatefold sleeve!! Fab!

And we'll all be first in the queue for tickets.

You could do a support slot for the Phantoms! That'd be great. Aim for next June (21st) at The Grey Horse!!

I didn't know you had that Jo. Did you buy it at the gig?

Do you like the instrumental CD I made?

That wouldn't be a Scotch would it?!! grin

Sadly, yes.

They didn't have any Irish in the venue, so I had to settle for a J&B. A little harsh for my taste (I normally go for Bushmills), but way better than the ubiquitous Bells.
