Just giving my stunt liver a rinse in readiness for seeing @LordConnaught tonight. We've decided it might be nice to do a gig sometime...

Looks like the long awaited Godfrey and Mitchell experimental baroque rave is on! Probably not Frost* related.

Yes, but as I asked (without answer) does that mean "do a gig" as in "let's do lunch"...or "do a gig" as in "let's put on a concert"?

Keen for both to happen but moreso the latter...shouldn't read too much into it, though. :)

Or maybe he mis-spelled it and meant "jig".
I suspect, from previous reports of when the two of them get together of an evening, that's not unlikely.

I've never been to an esoteric evening.. so that would be quite cool. We could Jig while we're there.

Was there ever allusion to negative vibes between them when Frost dissolved? I don't recall anything on that order (although the stuff that seemed to go down between Andy and Jowett, Nathan King, Alex Thomas then Craig Blundell seemed extremely chaotic and unnerving). I'm not looking to dig dirt or dish, but it just seemed like there was a lot of interpersonal fracturing behind the scenes. Through it all it seemed Jem and Mitchell were holding firm, then Frost was done with.

This has been in mind for awhile since Jem hasn't updated his blog for more than a month now, and his silences get worrisome after some time.

Post by: Pedro on August 13, 2011, 07:14:51 PM
It's only right that stuff that goes on between people remains their business really so there'll always be room for speculation, sadly. As far as I know there's not been any major fall-outs and while Frost* may have appeared to have a revolving door sometimes it was largely setup that way from the start. Jem stated a desire to keep things fluid from the off and it has certainly been that!
The important thing to keep hammering is that Frost* is only a hobby project so it has probably cost Jem more than it's made, and it HAS had to take its place in life's pecking order...which is where it currently is.
Who knows maybe someday there'll be a book! ;)

Jem still fires tweets of the usual flavour at Mitchell and Blunders, and I can't imagine any way in which a fall out with TBE or JJ would be possible. They're all just too nice people!  ;)

Post by: JakeWorrell on August 13, 2011, 10:48:00 PM
I got absolutely no hint towards any negative vibes between them all. On the contrary in fact, it seemed like the new line-up were just starting to really get a good chemistry going. Unfortunately it takes a lot more than just that to keep a band going.

Ah, allusions, allusions.

A post titled "Summer's End" (sorry, my anal retentiveness required that I add that apostrophe): is that a blatant hint or diversionary tactics? Only three weeks away now though ...

And how about the phrase "Before that though as the temperature drops and the Christmas frosts return"? Although I'm sure it's a joining the dots of preposterous proportions, I shall choose to imagine that I will be needing to get a flight to London for a concert at The Peel in mid-December ...  8-)

But I have the feeling you all know more than I do ... stop talking in riddles everyone!  :mrgreen:

I agree it's not entirely clear (e.g. when / where / is this actually the next incarnation of Frost* or just a gig with them playing polka tunes in 7/8?) but let's face it, any gig with those 4 individuals is going to be good and is a major step forward from where we were in March.
We also now need to accelerate getting that big banana back from its world tour and ready for action again...  8-)

It's pretty obvious they'll play at least ONE song they already know, to say it like that.  :D

Edit: To those of you who are able to go there, make sure you'll show them how much love we have for Frost*, hopefully that will make it such a pleasant evening that it might be repeated in the future. And THEN I would have booked some time off.  :mrgreen:

Tickets duly bought. Or at least I talked to Twang (I expect) and said I wanted some, but because I'm based abroad, he said it would be best to order them via The Peel's email address for pick-up on the night. Done.

But since he said he would read that email tomorrow and set them aside, I'm worried that they'll all be gone by then, paid for over the phone tonight. He did give the feeling that they're going like hotcakes ...  :shock:

So, I'm putting this down as a marker: I sent my mail at 19:55 UK time on August 17, ok? I can't miss this ...

Am I being thick, cos I couldn't find any info on the Peel, or the House of Progression websites? In the end I called The Peel, and one very busy sounding barman (Twang had gone home - probably worn out from taking the calls!) directed me to fire off an email to reserve tickets. I'll know tomozza if I've been successful. Fingers, toes and other assorted anatomical items crossed!  :shock:

Of course, having posted it here, I then got phonecall after urgent job after phonecall so didn't get a chance to book a ticket  :o
And I'm off dah sarf tomorrow.
Hopefully the Marvellous Organisational Utility System Extension is programmed to remind me to call when I get a chance. I might just have to pull off the M1 at 9am!

I'll fire 'em a knee mail just to be sure.

Tickets are flying out of the door 12 Advance.

PLEASE PHONE 0208 546 3516 ON THURSDAY 18th AUGUST NOON -7.30PM

DO NOT PHONE TONIGHT!! Thank you all."

Pajter: as noted above, I called The Peel and was told (by Twang?) that the best way for people overseas to get tickets is to send an email (which you've done) with your full contact details (which you may have done), and then he'll put tickets aside for you, to be picked and paid for at the gig.

That's what I did this evening, so hopefully it'll work for you too. As also noted above, however, the speed at which the tickets were evidently selling out gives me the slight concern that those who're phoning and paying on the spot (from the UK) may have nabbed all the tickets before the emails get looked at tomorrow.

A sleepless night ahead; this gig is not to be missed ... !

(p.s. I made another post earlier that oddly disappeared into the ether congratulating myself on my powers of preposterous prognostications on picking the cryptic announcement to mean a mid-December Frost* gig at The Peel; sometimes wishful thinking can come true  8-) )

I've been poking around at flights and all that, even though it's probably too early in the game to really settle on anything... Why, of all places, do I have to be trying to get to the UK from Seattle? At least I have friends in low places over there where lodging is concerned...

I should think you'll be ok mate, the reason it's taking a while is that if one person's trying to pay for tickets over the phone, and someone calls on the other line, it stops the transaction going through.

This logjam is what comes of allowing just anyone to come to Frost-flavoured events - I'm outraged that people will be permitted to attend who like Dream Theater, Dimmu Borgir, Justin Bieber, Mott The Hoople or Yes.

Especially Yes.

Err, Pedro, I have to post this here because you've locked the Upcoming Frost* Gigs topic: shouldn't you update the subject to eliminate the "None" part?  8-)
LOL I think you caught me in the act of moving the gig from "Frost*-ish" thread to the full-fat "Frost*" thread (cos I'd just had it confirmed). I think it's all correct (but let me know if it's not, I'm still too excited to think straight!). Those threads have always been locked in an attempt to keep the mechanism free from biscuit crumbs. :)

Err, I don't think so, Pedro: the locked thread is still titled "Upcoming Frost*-ish Gigs - None" on the active items page. Or is there another thread that has the gig in?
We've had two threads for a while; "Frost* gigs" for, erm, Frost* gigs and "Frost*-ish gigs" for things like Esoteric and Defence of the Realm. As I explained in the previous post, the December gig changed from being "ish" to being a full fat Frost* gig so "-ish - None" is exactly right...isn't it? Look at the second thread in Gigs...am I still deluded?

Ah, ok, see what you mean, Pedro. It was just that the proper Frost* gig thread didn't appear on the active threads page (which is all I ever look at), because for some reason that dates of your posts are set as September 9, 2010.

Presumably you've edited an old post rather than entered a new one on that locked thread. Might be better if you did that, so that it floats onto the active page as being new.

That said, if the gig isn't sold out very soon, I'd be surprised, so might be better to keep it submerged to avoid disappointment for the (slightly) latecomers ...  ;)

Young man? Well, there's an admittedly flattering notion I'll be happy to disabuse you of in person in mid-December  8-)

Speaking of which, I can't help thinking that we ought to use the time between now and then to come up with a serious plan for overcoming "The Unknown Frost*ie" phenomenon at the Christmas gig, i.e. having people who converse regularly here on the forum arrive at The Peel and not quite know who anyone is in person.

One option might be some of those delightful printed American conference attendee badges with "Hi! I'm ..." then filled out underneath in magic marker. Yeah, right.

Or we could post a rogues gallery of real pictures here and spend the next 4 months running quizzes until we're all sick to death of each others' fizzogs. Yeah, right squared.

How about bespoke T-shirts each with a common back design from VitP, say, but with our forum name on the front? Might cost a bit, but this might be it for a long time to come (unless we kidnap Jem, John, Nathan, and Craig and make 'em write and record a new album at Nellie's house).

Thoughts, people?

Don't know if The Peel has a decent internet connection, but if they do, we could always ask Twang to set up a laptop running iChat connected to you, Roger. That way, you could watch the gig (sort of), and we could all drop by and say hello.

I like that; Roger's head floating in a big iChat window on top of the bar. Then again, it wouldn't be long before Jem turned up and tried to offer you a red wine via the keyboard  8-)

T'would be a cool idea to maybe get a live stream of the gig on the night, for those far flung Frosties who can't make the trip. More so if it sells out, as it is seemingly on track to do.

Is this a possibility ?

It would indeed be a thing of coolness.
But we also need to be a little bit careful not to pile (or even appear to be piling) any of this extra stuff on Jem. I made the mistake of fuelling calls on Twitter for recording/video-ing the thing and it was pretty clear from Jem's response that this is being done for fun and not for hassle.

[Sorry, I wrote this and then got distracted listening to Yes at Wembley in 1978, the awesome Friday Night Rock Show broadcast. By the time I remembered to submit this, Pedro had stepped in with his entirely appropriate caution. Nevertheless, if you read to the end of my post, you'll see that I agree that if this were to happen, it should be done by us, not by Jem or Twang.]

Hmmm, I made that leap as well when writing my previous post. Problem is, I suspect that streaming to a significant number of people is likely to be technically demanding and/or bloody expensive.

I could be wrong, though: has anyone on here got experience of setting up streaming from (relatively) small-scale events like conferences, for example? A quick google reveals a bunch of companies (e.g. Streaming Wizard, Blue Cat Productions, both in the UK) that do it. Blue Cat's prices start at about 1600 for a single camera, single event. Ah, 10% off for new customers; make that 1440 then. Plus VAT makes just under 1700.

One perhaps partial solution to the cost might be to run it as a pay-per-view. 200 people at 10 a pop would more than cover the costs, but I don't know if the non-attending Frost* market would actually be big enough really.

Then again, since you'd presumably also end up with a recording that could be burned onto a DVD, perhaps some of the costs could be defrayed by selling copies to those who were at the gig. But I suppose people might also find a way of downloading the original stream and make it available for free, so ...

To be honest, I'd imagine that this is something that Twang and Jem would be unlikely to contemplate, financial risk-wise. A possibility might be, with their permission, to run it as a non-profit making Frost* Forum sponsored activity, i.e. have some of us organise it and underwrite the costs. I mean, I'd be willing to risk, say, 50 to see this happen and spread the Frost*ie goodness. After all, with the tickets I've bought, flights, and accommodation, my personal costs for being at the gig are already going to be substantially higher than that, so in for a penny, in for a pound.

At the same time, I think everyone would have to understand that this would probably be a pretty rough and ready affair in terms of pictures and sound (unfortunately): it's not going to be the Berlin Philharmoniker streaming quality  8-)

Hmmm, interesting thought nevertheless.

I think Jem made a good point on Twitter. This is going to be a bit of a relaxed Frost*mas knees-up and any attempt to record or stream it will add to the stress, hassle etc and potentially impact the party mood.

I'm sure we're all thinking the same thing though: "what if its the last chance we get". We'll just have to hope it isn't :)

Agreed, we don't want it to become hassle before it's even happened. Wasn't aware of the associated costs either (a studio local to me does webcast of gigs and the like but don't charge anything like that sort of ).

Ultimately it was partly selfish as I shall be unable to attend due to me being made redundant that week and with no job on the horizon I can't commit to the ticket, travel and accomodation costs that close to Xmas :cry:

I'm seriously considering a trip, but it all depends on economy. I can fly cheap-ish, but I also need the ticket and a place to stay. And of course, learn to navigate a city 10 million times bigger than mine.

So yeah, there's planning involved, but the tickets are selling fast, I hear.  :cry:

Hi All
Got my ticket for the Peel gig. Anyone know what time the Peel will kick us all out? I need to work out how to get back to London to get the last train home!
Looking forward to meeting some of the regulars here.

Thanks to the aforementioned M.O.U.S.E (http://http://www.frost-music.co.uk/frosties/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2775&start=40#p48851), I eventually got through to Twang whilst standing in the pouring rain in a queue for a "walk-in drier" at Legoland Windsor (it was raining so much that the queues for the driers were longer than the queues for the rides).

It took a few attempts to be heard over the background noise of torrential rain, hot-air blowers and screaming kids, but I'm pretty sure he said the card transaction worked and the ticket will be waiting for me at the door....

Now to decide if i'll be staying one night or making a weekend of it, and book appropriate accomodation.

There have been a few thoughts from Frost*ies over on the Tinyfish forum about where to have a pre-gig meet/greet/drink, and the idea was that The Peel would be a good place to do so. They have all the usual stuff available in a bar seperate from the gig area (the bar does extend to through to the venue too, for those who like to booze and bop during the gig). Twang may have to prepare for extreme real ale consumption! What do we all think, would that be a good idea?

Is that because of the gig being "all but sold out", Gandalf? I haven't seen anything about it being completely and definitively sold out, so don't give up yet! Of course, if it's about the cost of travel and such, then that's bad luck indeed.  :(

Indeed... "all but sold out" isn't quite all gone yet, but you do need to be quick now methinks; they'll all be gone soon. Frost... it's got to be worth moving hell and earth (and snow) to see, shirley??

Hi Witchy, good to have you back.
I too got those messages last week.
There's no-one to take the bookings on a Friday night.
Someone took my details on Saturday but didn't pass them on to Twang, as I found out when I spoke to him on Monday.

How long did it take for anyones tickets to arrive?

If Mooncat is still passing on my offer of a ticket Witchy is next on the list

At least the debits gone through my account

I'll have to check which one we have for that night. We are at The Peel for Dec Burke, Magenta and Frost* and staying at a different Travelodge each time!
Stayed at the Kingston Central one before, quite nice. We parked in the car park opposite it but nearly messed up cos we didn''t realise that the below-ground levels got locked at a certain time (can't remember what time that was). If you're parking there read the signs properly (or ask).
We usually stay at the Travelodges "Chessington Tollworth" or "Sunbury M3", both of which mean you have to drive to The Peel but they tend to be cheaper to book than the Central one (e.g. 30 versus 60).

We usually stay at the Travelodges "Chessington Tollworth" or "Sunbury M3", both of which mean you have to drive to The Peel but they tend to be cheaper to book than the Central one (e.g. 30 versus 60).
I can't possibly drive to the peel with the amount of tasty alcohol I'm informed they have! ;)
I'm sure you don't need a pedant like me to point out that it's not the "driving to" that is the issue!
Fair point though. I guess it depends on how much you value the ability to partake of the foaming ale versus expenditure. I find I get intoxicated enough from the music and wonderous people at these events.  :)

LOL I was tempted to pick up a spare or two in order to create a kind of "allocation" for forum members. However, realising that my total spend from that phone call was already 160 I decided against! :)

Hmm - that would be ironic - the fastest gig to sell out at the Peel ever but only 100 people turn up as we all bought spares just in case other forum members needed them - but no-one did!  :roll:  ;)
Still, it shows what a decent bunch Frostie*s are, thinking of fellow fans who might have been on holiday and missed the opportunity.  :D

Damn and blastations!!!  Just returned from my jollies and seen the news about the gig and its selling out.  Absolutely gutted.  The gig last December was the best gig I have ever been to.  This was after being rushed into hospital the day of the 09 CRS gig and then JM getting stuck on the M6 after being burgled. Never thought I'd have the opportunity to see the band again.  I know it's a long shot but does anyone have two spare tickets going for sale?  Any help would be gratefully received.   :cry:  :cry:  :cry:

Only if you bribe Kingston's only curry house (that we could find) to stay open until after 9pm or whatever silly time it closes.
Or bring a takeaway with you and warm it up on Nathan's bass rig.

Maybe if we guarantee them a large enough group will turn up, they might stay open. I know I'd be up for that, definitely. Except for the cheese naan.  :lol:

I seem to remember finding a curry house in Kingston that was open until midnight.  Four of us trooped in 15 minutes before closing and we were the only ones there. Imagine the joy on the waiters' faces!  ;)  Saying that, the food was good, as was the service and I didn't get food poisoning (unlike the curry house in Bilston).  All I can remember is that the place was near a large supermarket (Tesco?), if that's any help?

I'm still reeling from the news, but as things stand, my prog-detesting wife will actually be by my side,  experiencing the madness of a Frost* gathering for the first time. Always the first to run a mile from accompanying me to a gig involving non-danceable time-signatures, the words 'Christmas Party', 'possible curry" and 'a visit to 'That Larrrndon' seem to have had a peculiar effect on her.

So Jem, John, Craig and Nathan, the gauntlet has been thrown down. What was to have been a low-key, fun gig has now had the pressure ramped up a Milliontown-fold. We will have a dissenter in our midst. Be prepared for heckles, dismissive banter and general non-mellotronic sentiment to pour forth from her normally sweet natured mouth. Nothing less than a prog babtism is called for. Yo've all seen the film The Exorcist. Well, sort of imagine that with a 7/8 soundtrack.   :shock:

But you have a head start. She's addicted to biscuits.

Go easy on her guys and gals, for she knows not what awaits her.... ;)

I'd be more exited if train tickets from here to Kingston weren't so expensive currently 72 is the cheapest available which is really annoying as the month before I have return train tickets to Gatwick Airport from here that only cost 29.

May have to reconsider going if that price doesn't come down :(

I've not tried it myself but I hear you can often get dramatically cheaper journeys if you get several smaller journeys.

For example for going from Telford to London it might be cheaper to get a ticket to Brum and then a ticket from Brum to London than just getting the one ticket to London. 2 singles can sometimes be cheaper than a return too. Worth a look maybe?

I know about that but rarely works on the London-South Wales line I can usually get cheaper advanced single tickets but they're not available at the moment they might be as we get closer to the date at the moment the off peak return is cheaper than two singles

Mike, is that the price of a ticket from your's to Kingston, or from your's to the nearest big train station that happens to be in London? Whenever I get the train down from Hull, I get a ticket just to King's Cross, then get one of those Zones 1-6 travel cards, which is about 8, from the machines in the station. The price of a single/return ticket from Hull to Kingston is far more expensive than a single/return to King's Cross and then the travel card. Sorry if I've missed something glaringly obvious, but it was just a thought I had.  :)

That was the price to Kingston but it wasn't really any more than the price from Neath to London Paddington, the price should come down next week when advance single tickets go on sale :)

I'm not particularly old, but I have been to a fair few gigs and festivals and seen plenty of bands live. Of all of them there are 2 I will remember the most. One is the first proper gig I ever went to (Linkin Park, before they really became massive). The other is Black Live Machine at Derby last year - just a great night all round!

Oooo only 3ish months left to go!

Oh, my, are you in for a treat :)

The Frost*mas gig of 2008 was, beyond a shadow of a doubt, the best gig I've ever attended (if I forget the "Magician's Assistant" part).

It was exactly as JiB described: Utterly, utterly bonkers with a large helping of genius thrown in.

Because it's a small do, it feels very.... cozy, I suppose. The guys are so very relaxed on stage - they don't need to be tense because a) they're all so damned good and b) if they do screw up, it just adds to the hilarity.

On that occasion, Dec's voice was so shot by the end when they were about to do a progged-up rendition of "Merry Christmas Everybody" that Jem just asked if anyone in the audience wanted to do it - which was how we were introduced to the highly-talented Cosmic Lawnmower (http://http://www.frost-music.co.uk/frosties/memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=233) :)

You don't get that at a Rush gig. Or Transatlantic. Or... well, anything really.

Yep: Genius, unhinged.

Hello all, long time no post!

So very excited about this - got me tix, for me and my new Mrs P (she claims to be a non-progger, but I saw her tapping her foot in 15/8 at our first gig together, Spocks at The Robin in 2007).

Looking forward to seeing everyone again (I gate-crashed your pre gig meet-up in Derby last year, then got totally smashed and spouted bollix all night), and hope to be on better behaviour this time if you let me join you - Mrs P will have my jewels tightly clamped in case of over-exhuberance!)

I know some of you guys are staying at various TravelSplodges, but am I right in assuming they don't have a resident's bar? Anyone know of a hotel with a retreat, within (arthiritic) walking distance from the venue (I'm not reet familiar with that Lahndahn place).

Oh, and HAPPPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!! :D

Firstly, apologies to all you loverly Frosties for being a bit quiet of late. (and on Twitter as a very nice young lady pointed out to me at the IB/MA gig last nite). Nowt sinister, just lots and lots of boring life type things taking over, and me trying trying to get some finished music recorded for my new Soundcloud page... more of this shortly I hope.

The reason this post is here is because even though I have tickets for the Xmas AGM I may not be able to make it! This is because somewhere there is a scalpel blade with my name on it, and scheduling has so far decreed that I will be making aquaintance with said item on the week of the gig! it's nothing too major and is in fact an in and out on the day job, but I probably won't be in a position to bounce the Big Banana that close to the laughing gas. However, I'm not going to offer my ticket at this point in time, things can change, as they already have, and I may get another last minute postponement. So, if anyone is still without a ticket during the week of the gig, PM me and I'll let you know what's happening
This is a sort of win-win situation. One way I get a nagging "injury" in operation and the other I get to see a damn fine band in operation.

Dare I also suggest that we ask the nearest curry house if they'd like to stay open after the gig for some post-gig dinner, or would everyone like to relive the great curry hunt of '08?

The conclusion over the other forum was that pre drinks should not be at The Fighting Cocks as we want our money to go to The Peel not anywhere else.  I hope the feeling is the same at this forum??

And then post-gig I suggest I try the nearest curry house, and I will see if I can get them to stay open for us.

Can anyone who's interested in post-gig curry send me a PM so I can get numbers?

Right time to get organised.
Anyone still wanting a couple of tickets let me know. Only if you haven't previously said so.
I think everyone that I promised them to either can't go or already has some.
If there is anyone else, let me know which thread and page it was, as I currently have a taker for both tickets, but I need to make sure that I'm not letting anyone down.

ES, your's is in the bag. No problems.

I've got to try to limit my alcohol consumption so I can remember the gig; you're not making this easy! :lol:

Edit: Not sure if it was you, Twang, that I spoke to, but I was "promised" (my words, not yours/theirs) an email confirmation. Didn't receive one, just a verbal one whilst paying on the phone. Slightly concerned I may not actually have tickets when I think I do without some kind of textual confirmation.

Well I didn't actually mean drink from Noon till the gig! :shock:  :shock: That would be very silly. (Unless the Earth is about to explode to make way for a Hyper By pass of course, then, well drink up the World's about to end.)

What I mean't was the bar is open from Noon, ergo it will be open all afternoon, evening, night, eternity.........Unless the World ends of course and then none of it is my problem. :D

I think we dropped the curry responsibilities onto James H (LivingForever), but he's a bit ill at the moment. It might take a while to sort out, but it's certain to happen. I love curry.

EDIT: Or you could just check the thread that's dedicated to signing up for the curry... *makes note to look before you type*

Two weeks to go, people...  :shock:

The Peel is not priced like central London venues or worse still *shudder* 02 or Wembley prices.  For Londoners it seems cheap.  I would guess Northerners may find it expensive.

Hmmm, there's a thought: renting a lens. My 18-200mm lens for my D7000 is currently back at Nikon for repairs after the zoom ring became, err, very stuck, and I'm not sure of getting it back in time for The Peel.

Despite it being only f/3.5 to f/5-ish at best, the D7000's rather excellent low-light level performance means that the combo's not half bad for concert pictures, at least by my standards. I used the pair at ISO1600-3200 at the Arena concert at De Boerderij recently, as I posted in another thread here ...

OK, an f/1.2-1.8 would be nice for the limited DOF and bokeh, but I've been trying in vain to get a hold of the AF-D f/1.8 85mm Nikkor lens from my local (best price) supplier here for a a month or more: as they're made in Thailand, supplies have dried up (if you'll pardon the inverse pun).

On the other hand, since I'm sure there'll be plenty of photogs at The Peel, p'raps I should spare myself the bother and listen instead ...  ;)

Generally fine, although I don't really know any different as I've always been here!
Guess it can be a little insular  :?

I thought no man was an island? Well according to John Donne anyway...

Let's just pray the weather won't make a mess of the air traffic. Was a bit of a panic this morning, it's sheet ice all over and rain, makes it slightly hard to do any safe landing and taking off. Somehow it seems silly they can't fly because of conditions on the ground...  :|

I am just glad there's no snow forecast this time... hopefully my little car will be able to get me there through the wind and rain... I couldn't bear to miss a second Frost* gig due to pesky weather.

I hope the wind won't be too bad for the cosmic lawnmower's faerie crossing  ;)

Cheerio,

Remarkably, the weather in Kingston for Friday night is forecast to be dry, partly cloudy, and 3 degC. That's tropical conditions compared to the Derby gig last year. Might not need my thermal undies after all.

Just in case anyone's stuck, duplicate of my post in the spare tickets thread..

Stop Press:

Hmm, if you ask very nicely, I *may* just have a spare ticket..

I've got two, including my own, but my ever-so-lovely girl friend who's supposed to be coming with me fell off her horse in a particularly spectacular manner yesterday and it seems she may have broken her foot. Dozey mare. (Abi that is, not the horse).

I shouldn't laugh I know, but it was particularly funny to witness, though she's gutted that she may be off her feet for a few weeks I did point out that missing the AGM was a far worse price to pay than having to put yer feet up all over xmas.

Anyway, given it's this close to the gig and I'd like to cheer her up I figure that if she can't come I'll offer the spare up to the highest bidder and Abi can treat herself with the proceeds. PM an offer and highest bidder by say 9pm wednesday evening (GMT) will get the ticket. Obviously collection at the gig only but I'm definitely going, even if I break all four limbs and will be around from late afternoon/early evening for coffee/pub/random meetup before the gig to sort it out.

Been more excited than a 38yr old should be for too long to remember already but yes...it's really starting to ramp up now. Plus, been on a 100% Frost only audio diet on my 90 minute morning and evening commute for a fortnight now & I'm not convinced my brain's not going to melt before Friday night.

Not quite as dramatic as coming from Norway but Kate & I will be setting off later this afternoon.  Bizarrely it is a lovely sunny day up here in Scotland but the forecast for 'dahn sarf' tonight isn't too good...  :?
Still, if I made it to Manchester and Derby in all the snow and ice last year, a bit of wind and rain won't stop us tonight!

Just a light smattering of snow here in Stalybridge, not enough to warrant the Land Rover!

Just finishing off my weekly forecasting for work (not weather forecasting!), waiting for Mrs P to finish work early then setting off about 1.pm.

Google Maps says go over the Pennines and down the M1 - Given RH's report on snow conditions, this is perhaps not a good idea!

See you all in the Peel then. Save a glass of Advocaat for me please.

It's been gigtastic of late - saw Green Gartside of Scritti Politti last week (couple of videos here if you like them - http://www.youtube.com/jsnowdendavies (http://www.youtube.com/jsnowdendavies)) and Motley Crue/Def Leppard on Wednesday at Wembley (videos won't upload yet).  

Both were ace, but tonight is the one that is really gonna be KOOL! Just got to decide which teeshirt to wear yet - TPE or the white one with the black sleeves...

Great great night. Perfect set. Bloody hot but brilliant.
Still driving home so just a quick note: High points for me - Saline, BLM (as always), TDL was everything live it had the potential to be last year, unexpected encore segue into Milliontown.

Nice to see a few faces too - shame it was too rammed to chat too much.

As Jem said at the end: they'll be back next year...can't wait!!

I left a bit later than I probably should have and then had a nightmare on the sth circular.  I didn't get there til they were finishing Don't you want me  :cry:  but on the plus side I didn't miss Losers Day Parade.  :D

Saline!!!  As DS said - I have now finally seen it live!  It didn't register until DS said that.  

Then a bit of hanging around before the rather splendid curry.  Great night that thankfully was not spoilt by snow.  Can we change our year end to summer?

What an absolutely lovely and brilliant evening that was! I'm still smiling here. :D
You're a wonderful bunch of Frost*ies everyone, so nice to finally meet the people behind the nicknames, avatars and witty comments about biscuity things.

And a BIG thank you for the surprise t-shirt, that's so kind of you. I'm utterly moved by such a gesture.

Then there's the curry... Really sorry, I was just taking a photo with Jem and Mitchell, and was one minute behind, but somehow I got totally lost and ended up walking for ages and ages. I'm not good at directions, and just walked the same way someone else did... Obviously the wrong people. Came back to the Travelodge from a totally different direction.

It won't be the last time, I'll fly over again. It was SO worth it. :D

A truly great night out but then again it always is at a frost show, no matter how well they perform the main thing for me on these nights [and theres been seven of them now] is that the band and the fans just seem to have lots and lots of FUN, i truly beleive that this is what makes frost stand apart from every other band.  :D                        ps the music helps as well.   ;)

Really happy to have been there to see everyone again and  Jem and the lads were on fine form. A gig like this looked very unlikely earlier this year and I feel privileged to be able to see the band in action again.

I must say though that although I'm all for as many fans to see Frost* as possible, the amount of bodies in the Peel last night made for a slightly dulled and detached experience I'm afraid viewing from the back of the room, but thats partly my fault for not getting to the venue earlier. It just felt a little too rammed for comfort is all. Is this normal for the Peel 'cos it didn't seem like this at the last time I saw the band there Xmas 08?

Anyway grumbles over, it's most uncharacteristic of me to be doing anything other than spouting unbridled praise :)  I'm still enormously grateful to Frost* for pulling out all the stops to kick Christmas off in style. Thanks chappingtons!

The difference between this year and last year is that there was a telly in the other bar last year that you could watch.  This meant that everyone had to be in the main bar making it such a nightmare.  But bizarrely it was much more squashed at the back.  When I got through (thanks  :D ) there was a lot of space at the front.   :!:  :!:  :?: Well not space exactly but not as hellishly sardine like as it was at the back.  

I really feel for everyone at the back.

Post by: Trapezium Artist on December 18, 2011, 12:03:47 PM
Well, well, well: so many things to say ... since it was the AGM, let me give my personal minutes in no particular order.

1. Gig: A complete blinder. Some bum notes and under-rehearsed tomfoolery perhaps, but I couldn't give even the slightest of a damn. It was Frost*, it was Christmas, it was one of the best gigs in many years, probably since the 2008 Christmas Peel gig  ;)  

As a foursome, this lot are all technically superb and I have to admit that from my vantage point on the left near the front (more below), I spent most of my time with a big grin on my face watching the newer boys, Nathan and Craig, giving it serious rhythmic welly.

2. Sound: Combined, this band is heavy; it seemed much more full on than any of the previous Frost* gigs I've been to. Absolutely nothing wrong with that; I know the songs backwards and forwards and so the fabulous melodies were always there, but it was rhythmically hugely strong as well (see above), making it very danceable (and I'm no dancer, as anyone who knows me can testify).

On the down side, it was getting far too loud and "crashy" towards the end of the main set; I loved that they played TDL, but major sections of it were lost to the over-cranked sound. It wasn't necessary; the encores seemed almost as loud, but the crashing had been dialled out and the sound seemed much clearer. I spotted a number of people around me noticing the same thing, so doubt that it was just me. Anyway, the ringing in my left ear has gone by now (!) and I'll remember to bring my earplugs next time  ;)  

3. Band: Great to have a chance to chat with everyone, if only briefly. Craig: will send you the picture I promised. Nathan: excellent form, sir. JM: Long may RMS Titanic II avoid those icebergs. Jem: Any time you're over this way, I'll get you into our big anechoic chamber and we can have a natter about Science!

4. Frost*ies: Ladies, gentlemen, you are wonderful. I'd met a few of you at previous gigs, but the custom T-shirt idea was genius (thank you, VitP: very good to make your acquaintance too, sir!) and I felt like I'd really joined the family in person, as opposed to in electrons, by the end of the evening. No time to talk with everyone in detail and I regret that my time with Pedro was only fleeting, but I know that there will be other occasions  ;)

As for our dear Norwegian friend, E.S., I'm so sorry that we lost you en-route to the curry. You looked ever so slightly shell-shocked to actually be at a Frost* gig and meeting your fellow Frost*ies, but understandably, given the chance to lig with the band afterwards, you took it with relish. BBS and I did hang around hoping you'd catch up with us and LFE did call you a couple of times once we were at the curry house, but it wasn't to be. Next time again ...

5. Peel: On the upside, it's as friendly a place as you can imagine. When I went to pick up my tickets (with Catherine and Alex1812 in tow, to whom I'd sold two), Gorgeous George had no record of my name on his list :shock:  and asked us to stand to one side and wait a minute. After less than that minute, he declared with a smile that we were blocking the door and stamped us in anyway. When I said "err, do you want me to pay you?", he said "what; you haven't paid? that's the other list!". He promptly found me and I paid. OK, I could have got us in for free, but that would have seemed so, so wrong (hopefully Catherine and Alex1812 don't mind  ;) )

Equally on the upside, I had a lovely chat with Twang: thank you, sir, for everything you've done and do do for us Frost*ies. Hugely appreciated.

On the downside, yes, it was horribly stuffed and hot. I started off in the cubby hole at the back with Catherine, watching the Twats in Hats from behind a gentleman that I suspect based on later evidence may have been Craig's dad [edit: Nellie tells me further down the thread that it can't have been Craig's dad as he no longer with us, unfortunately; but seemed to have been someone that had come to see him play rather than Frost* as such]. Absolutely no fault of his, but I was getting very frustrated and upset with the lack of visibility as well as the lack of oxygen, and thought my night was going to be heavily compromised.

But once the break came, I used my camera (more below) as a route onto the main floor and within a couple of people from the front. As noted by Ash, there was actually a little more space there and I was completely sorted. Thanks to everyone who let me push down there and steal some of their space. Nevertheless, I think we may have to hope for a more voluminous venue next year; I can thoroughly recommend De Boerderij, just around the corner from me  ;)

6. Curry: Also an excellent idea, so thanks to LFE/James for that. Sorry for boring/baffling people with a little too much physics, but I did enjoy everyone's company and the food wasn't bad either.

Watching LFE and Philadelphia totting up the final bill and acting as banker was indeed quite a drama, but we persevered and got there in the end. I still harbour a sneaking suspicion that the restaurant may have double-accounted for the 100 deposit, but I'm equally sure that Philadelphia was adding the bill up right, so I remain confused.

As one of the "here's another tenner, let's get out of here" backers though, I will take that pint next time, James  ;)

7. Photos/YouTubery: Thanks a lot to RiK for uploading his pictures: excellent stuff. I managed to get one or two decent ones from my slightly more distant vantage point (including one that I need to send on to Craig; see above), but overall the lighting was just too low for my 18-200mm Nikon superzoom in a bopping crowd, even at ISO3200. I've been trying to buy an 85mm f/1.8 for portraits for the past couple of months, but the Thailand floods have made them very hard to come by. Would have been perfect for this gig from where I was standing.

Then again, every time I raised my camera, I felt my engagement in the actual music ebb away; that's the reason I gave up being a somewhat more serious concert photographer in the early 1980s, in fact. So again, thanks to RiK for (a) having a big lens (which I spotted from a distance  ;) ) and (b) taking the time to get some great shots to fuel my memories.

On the YouTubery, I shall wallow in that later. I have a section of BLM from my camera, but suspect that you lot will have done much better ...

AOB: Just a huge thanks to everyone in and around the Frost*ie family, but especially to Jem for believing in himself and Frost* enough to get back on the horse. Whatever comes next, we are and will remain eternally grateful: you have created something truly special.

Date of next meeting: TBC, but no later than December 2012. Earlier if new album results in a tour (yes, please).

Right, I think I've recovered enough (AKA actually got some sleep!) to finally show my mug back in here. I had an absolute blast! The band were so relaxed and were clearly enjoying themselves. It may not have been as tight as the last set of gigs, but the feeling was much, much better! So many smiles, so many people bouncing around... Excellent, truly excellent.

I would go and see this band and their music live anyway, but you lot really do enhance the experience. Meeting up with everyone for a good natter before and after the gig was like having a warm family reunion. It was so good to meet everyone I hadn't met before to put faces to names. So many wondreful people really are the icing (should that be Frost*ing?) on this most brilliant, joyous and downright tasty piece of cake.

Big hugs all 'round!  :D

Extra special thanks to Fogeyspasm for carting us there and back *salutes*, LFE and Philadelphia for once again giving me somewhere to crash for the night, to everyone for the fab natterings, and to Twang for EVERYTHING, especially for helping me fix some absent Frost*ies' faces to the wall while the band were soundchecking. Roger, Gonzo, Landslug and Brom, you were there with us in paper/ink form. Next time, be there for real, OK?  ;)

I think it's so they can sing more comfortably and don't have to trap their nads in order to reach Dec's pitches on the songs that feature the good man.

Ah ... will amend my post. Any idea who then? I suspect that it was someone (along with partner) who had come to the gig to see him play in particular, rather than Frost*, as they had seemed to be having a nice chat after the gig, as well as exchanging hugs.

And of course, the obvious point missing from my Lordoftheringslength post was 0. Nellie, without whose tireless work we'd have been without our t-shirts, biscuits (none ever made its way to me  :( ), and much, much affection.

No way, how could you possibly notice that? I would pay good money for those skills! To me all pitch is relative.

I would imagine that mouse is right. Some of those parts Dec sang are ridiculous. I really struggle singing that "now you finally know what it means" part in wonderland. Doesn't stop me trying though, when no-one is around.

I don't know, it just developed over time. It also helps to have heard the songs a thousand times, notice the difference in tone when the pitch is lower etc.

And yes, that's a good reason. I guess that's why we didn't get Toys.  :mrgreen:

I saw you sitting in the back room with a resigned look on your face re the visibility issue and I was feeling pretty much the same way, which IS unusual for me at a Frost* gig. I don't generally have problems getting a good vantage point despite my average height (for a prog fan  ;) ) but I had to throw in the towel this time! And Mrs S is a petite 4'10" so she had no chance from the outset :cry:

But as others have said - take the evening as a whole and it was one to remember with a grin  :D

It is a shame that the layout of The Peel does this when it's full. I guess the only answer is to limit the numbers to 200 or so...but even then the low stage will still leave people unable to see that well. Plus I guess this would adjust the financials a bit.

I am currently having my usual pangs of guilt that follow most gigs where people have cause to complain about being unable to see well (or at all).

I have said it before and I'll repeat it here...I know I'm a big chap and I do bear this in mind when choosing where to stand. I never intentionally stand in front of people - so I don't "push in" or deliberately move in front of people who are already in place. I try to get there early, get my "to-one-side" spot and stay put. So if you ended-up behind me, that is exactly what happened, I didn't do it to you on purpose.

Getting there early and "playing the queue" well, usually enables me to get my much shorter wife and daughter close to or even at the front, but rather than make for the centre of the stage I always steer us to one side or the other.
 
I like to stand with my shorter companions because a) I like to enjoy the gig with them (not unreasonable in my opinion) and b) this protects them from the bumping/jostling they would endure otherwise (case in point; I let a chap stand in front of me for the last songs on Friday and all he did was lean on Mrs P and bump her with his elbows - he was obviously enjoying himself but Mrs P consequently wasn't so much).

So, once again, sorry if I was in your way on Friday night. I hope you can see from the above that this is not because I am a thoughtless basket....

I also hope that the video clips that are emerging can help to offset some of the disappointment for the "other-roomers". :)

That's us back home in Scotland again and just catching up on the posts.  What a great night!  :D   It was more like having 4 ridiculously talented musos just having a laugh and playing some songs in your front room than some deadly serious prog gig - and much the better for it.
Pedro - thanks for capturing Don't You Want Me.  Definitely one of the highlights of the night.  :lol:
Nice to catch up with many of you again, even if only briefly, and great to say hi to some Frost*ies I'd not met before (e.g. Geetar).
Really enjoyed hearing some tracks live for the first time (No Me No You and Saline).  Anorak question - was that the UK live premiere for No Me No You?  I know it was played at RosFest but I'm not sure it's been played this side of the pond.  Anyway, it rawked! :P
Roll on the next gigs.

It's a voice preservation thing. I (for better of for worse) don't record stuff with the thought of how to do it live, ergo I blat it at maximum capacity on the records so i can the best out of myself. Dropping the set a semitone means I can largely replicate the album repeatedly should the situation arise.

You'll find the same happens at an It Bites gig. ;)

I also hope that the video clips that are emerging can help to offset some of the disappointment for the "other-roomers". :)

Nothing against Twang the absolutely superb job he's done at The Peel, but I don't think we can play there again. We were dying on stage from the heat and I could see everybody fanning themselves in the first 3 rows so God knows how it must have been at the back. If Twang decides to leave The Peel and take up residence at a bigger gig I will be delighted to join him on opening night. Sad to say  I think we've outgrown The Peel. And I say that with the greatest of respect to it and what it's done for us over the years.

Right, I think I've recovered enough (AKA actually got some sleep!) to finally show my mug back in here. I had an absolute blast! The band were so relaxed and were clearly enjoying themselves. It may not have been as tight as the last set of gigs, but the feeling was much, much better! So many smiles, so many people bouncing around... Excellent, truly excellent.


Thank you mate. I did say to Craig (who shares your view) today that were we to tour for a fortnight, we'd be world class, alas the financials currently prevent us from doing so (being a touring musician in a fringe genre music band these days is not the route to millionaire-dom that it used to be ;) ), however I don't rule that out when the new album's ready.  :D  :D

I don't think anyones implying that you are, merely the layout of the Peel leaves little to be desired for such a gig.
You pays your money and takes your choice.
We arrived at bang on 8 and chose to stand at the back, others arrived after us and barged their way through.

.....Now if they played at the Picturedrome, for example........goes off on a dream

Just to be a little geeky for a moment... I noticed this at the gig, it's the curse of so called perfect pitch.. did anyone notice they have tuned down a half step? Why is that?
...
You'll find the same happens at an It Bites gig. ;)
Neal Morse referred to doing the same on one "making of" DVD...in that he still had to tweak some samples. Did the Fantom and does the Kronos take care of that at the push of a button or do you have to factor it in when programming?

Plus, without the drop we wouldn't have had that "I'd better tune the bass down" Frost* Report moment from JJ at Summer's End. :) I must admit, from the punter's perspective, I remembered thinking when JJ walked out; "Jeez, these guys are paranoid about their instruments drifting out of tune"....funny the impressions that punters can get about what is really going on. :)

Nice to catch up with many of you again, even if only briefly

Same here. Lovely to see you all too, though we had to leave early (Mrs G not in the best of shape that night - kids had been unwell at home previous day too).

Pedro - you are ALWAYS considerate of others: please stop feeling so guilty about being over 4 metres tall.

And the semitone down thing- in the US, it's done to do the "half-step down" for loads of live. For blues guitar especially, strung with 10's or 11's, it gets a better feel, sound and reliability over a whole night's playing and doesn't kill your hands. The vocalist gets an easier ride too, but that's just a bonus. Listen to a bunch of SRV, John Mayer and a whole heapin' mess of Nashville-centric music live to see how pervasive it is.

It does, however, "heavy" the music up a bit, so maybe that's a part of why the sound was a bit mashy; plus, my ears were in compression for a lot of the main set.

Anyway, sorry to have sloped off, but next year we'll likely be in better shape. I'd just like to put in a plea for a screen in the bar for next year, if that's even a remote possibility. it'd be a great boon ( maybe even a currant boon ?).

You (both band and Frosties) are truly a lovely bunch.

I am currently having my usual pangs of guilt that follow most gigs where people have cause to complain about being unable to see well (or at all).
Pangs of guilt totally unfounded matey - it cheered me up no end when I walked in to the room and saw you in your glorious pig-tails! :D
No, the problem was deffo at the back - my missus was getting bounced around and stood on by the steady stream of beer heads on route to and from the bar, most of whom decided it was their rightful place to barge through and stand right in front of her. Not a great experience for a prog first-timer! Thanks to everyone who shot video footage though - I'm having a very enjoyable time watching the Tw*ts in Hats right now! :lol:  :lol:

"But what really makes my night is when someone who I haven't met before comes up to me, asks if I'm James (I am), and tells me he likes it so much he's stayed up one night reading all the entries. Hits on the page are one thing, and I've been getting a few of those, but they don't tell you whether someone actually likes it or if they just read the first three paragraphs and give up when I still haven't made it to the gig. So, thanks Adam, you made my night!"

You're welcome - and 'twas true.  And I heartily recommend it to all other Frosties (although I suspect most of them have read it already).  BTW - you weren't at a Divine Comedy gig back in around 91/92 opposite St Pancras station in what felt like a village hall once were you??

Ahh, would that I were... no, I didn't catch them until 1997, sadly. But I was glad to have seen a couple of Short Album About Love-era gigs, including the most incredible gig at the Festival Hall with full symphony orchestra...

Those were the days!

Nothing against Twang the absolutely superb job he's done at The Peel, but I don't think we can play there again. We were dying on stage from the heat and I could see everybody fanning themselves in the first 3 rows so God knows how it must have been at the back.

And I say that with the greatest of respect to it and what it's done for us over the years.
I was talking to Twang after the gig and he touched upon the possibility of another venue in central London (without a silly curfew). If that happens, that would be a truly joyous thing to behold.

Pedders - I can only echo what everyone else has said. The problem wasn't with the people there, more the layout of the venue and the sheer numbers. I attempted to get in but I was going nowhere so had to give up  :(  I only wish that everyone at gigs were as thoughtful and considerate as you!

The Peel is ace and will forever be ace, but it is a small venue. I think the interest in last Friday's gig is a good indicator that Frost* have grown bigger than they were when EIMA was released and now need to stand in bigger shoes, so to speak. So, sell out gig at the Hammy Odeon next, then?  :D

I'd much rather see a band having a genuinely good time playing live being relaxed and at ease with mistakes than a tense, note for note exact reproduction of an album. That sense of fun is infectious and gets us lot in the audience all bouncy and grinny which is then, hopefully, transferred back to the band and so on. But, if you want to tour for two weeks, I won't try and stop you! I'll see you down the front at as many as I can manage.  8-)

Word Mouse.
I think the Peel has been fantastic on past experience for preserving that intimate atmosphere which blurs the boundary between the band and the audience, it's nice to feel that we're, as an audience, totally involved with the night's entertainment, even if we aren't the ones doing the hard work on stage. And going to bigger venues would possibly compromise that, but I've always felt that the CRS venue in Rotherham, for example, keeps the good vibes flowin' whilst also not being a total sweat-fest. At the end of the day it's all about numbers innit? And a central enough location so as to allow maximum bob audience-wise.

Just wow...

That gig was fantastic :) Totally made by the post-gig curry, too (thanks in no small part to James, Round of applause to you, sir!)

REALLY gutted I missed the entire TiH's set due to travel delays. We set off at 10 that morning and only managed to stop travelling ten minutes before frost* actually got on, but it was entirely worth it to put some faces to names and have a damn good night.

I watched Pedro's 'Don't you Want Me' video and loved it. Really hope they do something like that again next time, really sucks that I didn't see it, I do so love the traditional Frost* shenanigans :)

Also, thanks everyone who talked to me and MrsDrBlowThingsUp, you made us feel really welcome! And sorry to all the people I never got a chance to annoy, I promise I'll find you next time ;P

Whatever that stuff was that the restauranteur brought to soothe our financially-addled nerves at 01:50 on that Saturday morning, it most assuredly was not whisky. I know that's what he said it was, but ... ugh!  :shock:

Seriously though, you don't think for a minute that we're going to appoint anyone else to be Curry Commander next time, do you?

Belatedly and certainly not up to the standard of RiK's photos (my lens had come back from repair that day and I hadn't had time to calibrate the AF fine tune, which was off a bit, plus it was too dim in The Peel for a superzoom), here are a small selection of the pictures I took last Friday:

http://http://www.flickr.com/photos/markmccaughrean/sets/72157628529716947/

A band, the four blokes in it, and a certain well-known female associate playing it coy with an AGM t-shirt ...  :D

And for completeness and because I finally got around to creating a flickr account to share these pictures, I've also uploaded my Arena @ Zoetermeer pictures from last month there, at:

http://http://www.flickr.com/photos/markmccaughrean/sets/72157628529969861/
(oops; edited, as I had the same URL as for Frost* in ...  :( )

Shows what the same camera and lens can do when there's a bit more light  ;)
