Frost* / Re: JM on Closer to the Sun

I don't know what John said, but I would agree that it's a very simple solo. I expected way more notes from Satch, but I think it is very effective the way that it is. Simple and tasteful.

I did think it was odd nobody had mentioned it!

Well since I had mentioned it, I think it is odd that you hadn't noticed it. :P

Yes you're right that is odd!

Um, Jake...

Although, to be fair there seems to be a few more.

I've just discovered that Nathan has been doing videos for Andertons for quite a while, thought I'd share:

Means "warmth from the sun" in Welsh.

Quote from: Last Day by popular beat combo who go by the name of Frost*
The air is warming up again
The summer sounds are like old friends
I feel the sunlight through the trees

Can't be a coincidence. I suggest we deploy tin-foil hats immediately.

Her name is Tesni Jones, names don't get much more Welsh than that  ;D

Tesnee Jo-ens?

I've never even heard the name Tesni before!

My lovely girlfriend Jen and I frequented both the Wath and Bilston gigs this weekend. We travelled up to Wath on Saturday, checked into the Rotherham Holiday Inn and then headed to the Wetherspoons' just down the road for the venue for a quick bite to eat before the gig. We visited Meadowhall in Sheffield on the Sunday before making our way to Bilston for the second gig and a McDonalds.

Kiama were great with some excellent musicianship and a pretty big and tight sound ever all. There was a girl singing with them whose name is not mentioned on the band's list of members but I really felt she added a certain something to the sound so I wonder if she might become a permanent fixture.

Frost* were, of course, excellent. It was great to hear some of the new songs performed live and the band seemed to be having a blast on stage. There were some good laughs and the gages were not exactly the same between shows. Now, I'm not sure whether there is a problem with my ears or the position we were stood, but I did find it difficult to feel what was going on in 'The Raging...', I wondered if it was perhaps a difficult song to translate to live from a 'front of house' point of view as it's very bass heavy. The choruses felt fine, it was just the verses that I couldn't fully appreciate. It was also a shame not to hear a bit more from Experiments... but I understand the reasoning. They can't play everything!

It was nice to bump into Tim/Mouse (Who hasn't posted here since 2013, it seems), Fogey, and meet the infamous Rob Rideout. We bought even more T-shirts from Nellie (who appeared to be following us around) and I swapped my defective Vinyl for a new one. We also chatted to some nice people in the queue at Bilston but I wasn't sure of their names despite recognising them from Wath and possibly even some earlier gigs also.

It's great to experience the big F* back in action, long may it continue

Just Bristol (on a boat!) to look forward to next month now :D

Xander (my son, who was elated to be able to finally attend a Frost gig after being under-age for every venue we could get to until now) has an alternative theory:
He's become......

Bionic Blunders!

I think he might be on to something!

I think we need to address something here. I know Craig probably wants the nature of his operation kept under wraps but it became evident at Wath last night that he has had an extra arm added. Only this could explain what we saw and heard last night.

The operation was a success.

This is impossible

I've come up with

First Day
Falling Down
Lights Out
Nice Day For It...
Last Day.

Encore: The Dividing Line

But that brings me 2 mins over budget, and excludes such classics as: Pocket Sun (new version), The Other Me, Saline and Jem's favourite Dear Dead Days. And woe betide them if they actually want to speak during this hypothetical gig.

It's a good job they're deciding the setlist for us!

Haha, great response!

Craig is clearly an excellent drummer. The average drummer probably plays in unsigned bands, exclusively in 4/4. There's nothing wrong with at of course, but it just goes to show that average is a poor choice of word. I can only assume that the guy on the forum is confusing "average" and "not to my taste".
Of course we all know that the real defect is that it's just too awesome!

Some people might think songs like 'Lights Out' veer too far from the Frost sound but I think the opposite. This track makes me want to cuddle up in a comfortable dimly lit bedroom somewhere in the cold, green English landscape. That's Frost* to the core.

Yes now this is interesting because a few of us heard a demo of Lights Out when it was part of Jem's solo project Clouda. When I realised it was going to be included on FS I was curious as to how it would feel as part of a Frost* album. Now, there it is - slap-bang in the middle of an excellent Frost* album and it fits far more perfectly that I could have possibly imagined.

I'll never forget the awkward silence at the end of the song. It seemed more pronounced at the time somehow. You just never can be sure with prog whether a song is over or not, and nobody wants to get scowled at for clapping between movements.

Looking forward to seeing them perform the song live again now I'm familiar with it.
haha, 2 days, no line 3. Something must rhyme with dubstep!
