Hey Mark!! it was on Facebook. Perhaps Twitter, but I didn't see it there(I miss seeing you there, btw).  I would expect they're still taking material.

Good to see you around here!  Hope the new year is shaping up well.

Well, blimey. I was there and am pretty sure I do have some video actually, perhaps even a few minutes worth – will have to check when I get home this evening. And if I do, I'm of course only too happy to share it. It was a great gig and it'd be wonderful to see it finally available.

Where did Jem post this message originally, Rog?

From the Boss hisself!

Good hour to you and happy new year!

Over the last 5 years, there's been quite a bit of talk about the now Lord Lucan-esque nature of the increasingly mythical (well...ish) nature of the film of the Dingwalls gig we did 5 years ago. Personally I thought the footage wasn't good enough and was arguably rightly chastised for that opinion. However, thanks to the remarkable tenacity and recent super human efforts of Mr Chris Elliot I'm delighted to say that the project is finally underway.

BUT... we need your help. Frankly, and I'm still largely of this opinion, the footage was filmed with too few cameras and in dubious quality in some parts, so it became rather samey and boring after about 10 minutes, which is why I lost heart in the whole thing. BUT, in his eternally optimistic and cheerful way, Chris has asked me to kindly ask you (those of you who were there of course...) if you have any footage of the gig, would you mind sharing it with us so that he can incorporate it into the finished film?

Even if it's just a couple of seconds, anything and everything will help liven things up a bit... We'll name check you of course in the final credits and will owe you a great debt of gratitude from hereon. In return you'll be able to tell your grandkids that you helped put together a vitally important visual record of a band comprised of long dead musicians they've never heard of, playing some music they probably won't like. And in this way we leave the world a better place than when we found it.

So if you do still possess anything at all, please can you email it to us at - giving us the name you would like to be used in your credit.

Please share this post too on the relevant fora if you'd be so kind. Together we can get this film made. And this is the brilliant thing about you lovely people - you never take no for an answer and I love you for that. Thank you very very much!! Jem x

Well, that was rather good! Great to see Frost* live again for the first time in over 5 years. The band were in fine form and clearly enjoying playing together again. I'll not spoil the set list but suffice to say Day and Age was well represented (and already sounds fantastic live) and there were tracks from every album including all the big classics (you know the ones!). Thank you guys - hopefully it'll be less than 5 years before the next gig.
The Queen's Hall in Edinburgh was perhaps a slightly unusual venue for the band - as Jem correctly observed, it was their first seated gig. It was good to catch up with TA & meet his daughter Kate. Sadly I didn't have the guest passes they did! ;)

Rook! Long time, no hear! We're all now (had to look it up, a bit modern for me)
