    Thanks Chris.

    Here's one of the trampoline shots that didn't go quite to plan. They are even outgrowing my camera frame...

    If he’s still there in three years I’ll be amazed … and I’ll be finding another party for which to vote.

    I concur. It means this is likely the start of a 6 year rebuild, rather than 3 year. I can't see him going the distance, and there's a fraction too much faction for any coherence in the foreseeable future.

    Opportunity lost.

    Think I might have reached my reverb quota for a bit. Although looking forward to Hunters & Collectors this Friday.

    are those things all foot-pedals? yikes

    Well, he was using his foot to control them all, but I think some were loop machines or some such. It was quite an array.

    Nice shots Jonathan.

    Here’s a couple I took, before I moved back to a safer distance. Must remember those earplugs next time I go to a full throttle post-rock gig.

    A: Ground control and Major Jeff. More foot pedals than stage.
    B: Blue meanie.

    Yes, I did see that Geoff. Think we had different nights too. Sorry you couldn't make it. 'Twas a goodun.

    Bones is still my favourite all time track of theirs so I was so excited when they played it as the second number of the night – a treat for me considering how many songs they have to choose from.

    It's interesting, before TTOALOE (good god!) I would have said Grace under pressure, or even the earlier (2001) Powder Blue, which was my intro to the band. But I have got hooked on New York Morning and My Sad Captains, both which they played brilliantly last night.

    Like you say, there's a lot to choose from.

    A few photos of Elbow.

    I went to Elbow on Saturday night which was outstanding.

    I went last night, and was equally impressed. There is something about Elbow, which IMO puts them in a unique spot in the rock world. Intelligent rock? That sounds wanky, but Guy and his band sure are performers, and the crowd would have done a back flip with a half twist, had he cared to ask.

    The Take Off and Landing of Everything is definitely in my top albums of the year category. I can listen to it end to end several times a week, without getting bored. For a fussy bugger like me, that’s not so common these days.
