That is superb news!  

It makes my periodic returns to this forum well worth while!

Roll on the first reports!

Thanks for the positive words.  Just got to get the music in front of the right people now!
Friends Of Frost* / 3Kicks album Balancing Act
July 15, 2011, 01:40:21 PM
3Kicks is a band containing 2 of my brothers, and as such I'm inherently biased, but I like it (and they have received good reviews).  The album was recorded live with Jim Warren (live sound mixer for Radiohead and Arcade Fire), and has a nice "raw" feel as a consequence.

OK, I know it's not exactly prog, but it is loud and summery!

Anyway, for your listening pleasure I present:

Just got the album earlier in the week, and haven't stopped listening to it - parts of it just won't leave my head.

Great album, and can't wait to catch them live some time.

Surely by now we have enough between us to produce a full length video?!

Anyway, here are my contributions:

1) A sea of santa hats!


2) A bit of Milliontown


3) Some manlove at Christmas


Great gig!

First of all, thanks for an absolutely cracking gig - it's a long time since I've had so much fun and been part of such a good natured crowd.

A couple of comments and observations that made me chuckle; I was there with my (long suffering) fiancĂ©e and brother, neither of whom are familiar with the prog genre.  In fact while I piled into the crowd they sat behind and watched the gig on the TV in the bar round the corner.  I was a bit worried about them, so near the end of the first encore I came out to see how they were getting on, to find them both nodding their heads and tapping their feet - a good sign.

My brother (who is a rock/jazz drummer, for want of a better description), said "A lot of it was exhilarating, but some parts I hadn't got a clue what was going on - I was counting beats of 7 at one point".  Welcome to prog.  He also said the drummer had inspired him to try out some new stuff himself - hoorah, a convert!

In the meantime, I heard the opening bars of "The Lamb" start up, so made my excuses and dived back in.  The crowd reaction to The Lamb was amusing, to say the least.  On the one hand there were the old timers like me bellowing every word at the top of our lungs, and on the other there were the younger members of the audience saying things like "What the heck is this? Is it a new song?"  My brother's reaction was "I thought they'd wandered off into a Broadway musical by accident"!

Anyway, damn good night, and great job all round.  Gutted I didn't get a hat though.  :D
Good job!

Frost* / Anyone Got Any Spare Peel Tickets?
November 19, 2008, 03:03:24 PM
I know this is a forlorn hope, but has anyone got any spare tickets for the Peel gig on 20th December?

I'm after 2 if possible.  I'll happily pay a reasonable rate, and will be forever in your debt!

Well spotted that man, it's doubled in size, how did I miss that?

It's doubled in size, but halfed in length - no Bassoons, you see.   :(
