Gigs / Re: Blunders' solo from CRS Wath
« on: June 21, 2016, 10:22:33 AM »
I think I mentioned this in 'how I found Frost*' but TBE & Blunders were known to each other on the drumming circuit, and (I presume) through their association with Roland.
I had seen Blunders at several drum events and music fairs demoing Roland gear and at one such event I was introduced to TBE who I then had some lessons with and mentioned this band he was part of that he thought I'd like.

Not saying that Jem won't have done his own research ( a la Steven Wilson) but it wouldn't surprise me if there was a conversation between Jem & TBE......

There was a meet & greet of sorts - Blunders & JM  were out and about reasonably shortly after the set. Managed to catch a quick chat with Blunders who said he was still suffering a bit (no that it showed).
Jem was packing away his gear and was chatting to people from the stage.
I left shortly after that as I'd got an early start today  ::)

Indeed, fantastic show at Bilston - the boys were on top form and the new material was awesome live.
Props to Kiama as well for kicking off the night in style, to a larger than usual support crowd. And Nellie was busy on merch duties so hopefully everyone got whatever they were after  :D :D

Re:Bilston parking
There is afree car park right outside the venue, but if that's full there is another car park down the right hand side of the police station (opposite the front of the Robin).

Hopefully enough for all of us!!!! :o

Sounds dangerous, will we survive?

I'm having a similar issue with my ipod - seems to be unable to play anything but the new album.
Has Jem been in discussion with U2 on how to takeover the iWorld?????

To be fair though JM has no doubt seen a lot of this since Blunders appointment as Steve Wilson's drummer, a job which JM was consulted on his suitability for.
That and coupled with a recent interview Craig has given where he talks about his struggle with confidence and rejection, I see it as a mate sticking up for someone he believes in, and is a damn good drummer (and human being as well).
Might just be that this was the tipping point and the guy got both barrels.

Frost* / Fantasy Set List
« on: June 07, 2016, 04:50:05 PM »
OK,  with the gigs around the corner, though it might be fun (and maybe get the gaffer thinking ;)) to pick your ideal, and realistic setlist.

"Rules" as follows : set duration 90 minutes (ish) - our imaginary venue has a strict curfew, so you can't to be 2 minutes into 'Milliontown' as you hit the 90 and expect they let you play on.
You can take the song timings from either the album versions or any live recordings, but specify the source of your timing so everyone knows what you're on about.
You should factor in some time for in between song banter (a la Frost, Monkey, A*%$, Trumpet) as no doubt even in a dream set, you'll have some tomfoolery (wouldn't be the same else).
If you want to break the set into a 'main set' and cheeky encore you can.

Alas I'm currently working long hours in Paris, so won't have much chance to submit my own entry until the weekend at the earliest  >:(

Another Midshires-based Frostie*!!!!! 8) 8)

We'll have enough to fill a red telephone box soon ;)
(But maybe not a blue police telephone box)  ::) ::)

Blunders, you could always save lots of effort and sample your own drum tracks into your SPD-Sx and just trigger them, then join us at the bar !!!!

Good to hear from you Mr B.
Glad to hear you'll be back 'at it' soon, and see you in Bilstonia next month!!

At work all day, and then out gigging tonight.
Hoping that it arrives so I can chuck it in the car for the drive to and from the gig, and for the 'big shop' in the morning

Yep, super Nellie usually tries to get it so that UK delivery is on release day, if circumstances allow.
Obviously the more far flung Frosties have to wait a little longer  :(

I would envisage working backwards-ish Frost* would be on from about 9-9.30 with the Kiama on at about 8-ish for 45 minutes ???
A lot will depend on stage turnaround - i.e. if there are two drum kits to accommodate, plus keyboard rigs, guitar amps and the like it'll take longer than a shared kit set up
