Well, just popped in to see what's happening before bed, and just finished playing disc one of 'The Road Back Home'.
I have to say, the more I hear 'Cinema Show', the more I love it! cheesy

Never mind the Flower Kings connection.......I'm more interested in the Kajagoogoo connection wink grin

Seriously though, thanks for the info Steve. I'll check them out.

I was wondering about that too, Nov.
Sounds like the sort of place you'd change trains in Eastern Europe, perhaps. grin
Seriously, I actually own a Kajagoogoo single. I think it'scalled 'Big Apple', or something similar. It was released after Limahl had left the band, and Beggs had taken over the lead vocals.
Must admit I didn't know he was promoting the Chapman Stick though.
Heather Findley/Nick Beggs/Roine Stolt. A strange, yet maybe effective, combination. cheesy

Ok folks. Time for one of my surreal and slightly weird questions/comments.
Which member of TFK do you think would make a good Doctor Who?
That's got you thinking, hasn't it? grin

For me, I suspect Jonas Reingold would make a rather good Doctor. He has an air of mystery and quiet humour about him, methinks.

Feel free to gloss over this and continue on more suitable, if mundane, topics. cheesy

Bodin.

A Mad doctor. I find him really funny. Saw a Youtube clip of tfk and half way though Bodin just inserts his head infront of the camera with a goofy expression. Laugh? Oh yes.

It could be any of them to be honest.

They are all a bit surreal and "out there".

I'd go for Roine though. If I was stuck in a time-warp situation, I'd want Roine with me wink

Well folks, yesterday I played disc1 of "Meet The Flower Kings" again.
Gotta say it's absolutely wonderful especially considering this was the first time I played the dvd on my new LCD TV.
Just a couple of observations though: The percussion is too low in the mix, which is a real shame because the instruments are played with a real passion. Secondly, I found that I had to turn up the volume during the last few tracks of Garden (Shadowland and The Final Deal) Anyone else notice this? It's particularly relevant to the vocals.

Absolutely brilliant dvd btw and excellent value for money as you get 4 discs!

I now need to buy the other special edition dvd. If it's only half as good as MTFK's, I'll be happy. smiley

I agree with you about MTFK being a great DVD and a wonderful musical experience. I've not witnessed any drops in audio level though. Gosh, I guess I'm forced to throw it in and watch it in its entirety for the 1000th time. Damn you tongue wink

Other than MTFK, here are my favorite music DVDs (I know you didn't ask, but here they are anyhow grin):

1. Heart - "Alive In Seattle" (emotional energy in every song)
2. The Tangent "Going Off On One" (epic arrangements played live in a South England venue)
3. Transatlantic "Live In Europe" (the tour documentary on disc 2 is great as well)
4. Pink Floyd - "The Making Of Dark Side Of The Moon" (the story as told by the creators of this masterpiece - plus individual performances and interviews with each band member)
5. Neal Morse - "Testimony Live" (the most emotional performance by any prog master ever - absolutely amazing and jaw dropping)
6. Steve Hackett - "Once Above A Time" (20 of Steve's greatest compositions played with ferocity to an appreciative crowd)
7. "Concert For George" (if you love George Harrison and his music, you'll love every minute listening to his closest friends performing his songs in a tribute to this great man - he is sorely missed)
8. Pink Floyd - "Pulse" (Recorded in 1994 at Earl's Court - best sound - best visuals of any Floyd release to date)
9. Steve Hackett Acoustic Trio - "Hungarian Horizons" (I saw them perform on this tour. Steve has definitely surpassed any of his Genesis bandmates as far as talent goes. He never stops learning and growing in his field)
10. Pat Metheny Group - "More Travels" (Pat, Lyle Mays and band performing the best jazz fusion out there)
11. Dream Theater - "Metropolis 2000: Scenes From New York" (From August 2000 - great talent and a wonderful performance by some of the best musicians who ever graced a stage)
12. Justin Hayward - "Live In San Juan Capistrano" (Justin sans The Moody Blues, playing all the great TMB classics in an intimate venue. Justin IS The Moody Blues. I was at this show when it was being filmed. You can hear my whoops and hollers. Great backing band as well, including Moody's keys man, Paul Bliss, and fantastic bassist, Mickey Feat)

I also think any of them could be the Doctor, but I can just see Jonas in that hat, popping his head out of the Tardis and then trying desperately to close the door again, attempting to shut out the hysterical Welsh female trying to get into the Tardis to meet the Doctor's new long haired assistant - Hasse Froberg! wink

...and as for a new Doctor Who theme, well, TFK would be the band most likely to pull it off brilliantly!
They could easily compose a weird, spaced-out, synth led instrumental that would suit the show admirably.
Yes, that idea is appealing! cheesy

Nikki in the Tardis with Hasse shocked wink laugh

I actually would love to be the first female Doc. There is another character that is a relative of the Doc so in theory there is scope (with a bit of artistic liecensing too rolleyes) I would have my own list of male assistants though! wink

FK Doc Who theme, now there's an idea.

Actually, I don't see why they don't have a female Doctor sometimes. It would put an interesting twist on things, without a doubt!

I have the bizarre looks, and suspect fashion sense so I am half way there laugh

FK's doing a Doctor Who theme is an excellent idea but they would have to extent the length of the show to accommodate the average FK track length!
