Hello Everybody.
« on: June 01, 2016, 07:34:00 PM »
Hello all.

As the newest Frost*ie I thought it only proper to introduce myself. My first name is John and I live in the West Midlands. I only discovered Frost* about 4yrs ago when I heard Milliontown for the first time. It completely blew me away. Not since I was a mere lad in the 70's/80's with hair down to my arse and listening to /seeing bands the like of ELP, Genesis, Yes, Led Zep, Queen, Supertramp, et al, has a band had such a profound effect on me. I was begining to think that "progrock" was just regurgitating though countless bands with different names but using the same musical formula.
Frost*, to me, was like a breath of fresh air and after further investigation and finding Frost* reports, by courtecy of Drarok, I also found out that they are, like me, barking mad.
Anyway I will cease this rambling on for now and if any of you are going to the Robin 2 gig in Bilston I hope we can meet up for a flagon or two.

Tarrar a bit.

P.S. My copy of the new album on clear vinyl also has a fault on the first track of side 2. I have sent a message to Merch Desk/Nellie but had no reply as yet. Not to worry, sure it will get sorted.

Welcome jt57. See you at Bilston  :)

And now for the standard introductory question: what's your favourite biscuit?

Thank you DueyC. After due consideration I think that out of the many biscuits I like my standard fall back is dark chocolate digestives.
See you at the Robin 2.

Hi jt57

Your story is familiar, except that I was blown away by Milliontown just after it came out 10 years ago and have been 100% Frost*ie ever since.

The fault on side 2 is known - see separate thread.  They are working on it

Welcome, John!  I, too, consider Milliontown to be the pinnacle of prog, and it (re)awakened a love that I didn't know was still there.

welcome to Silly*land!

and I'm thinking about getting one of these: http://www.stewmac.com/Hardware_and_Parts/All_Hardware_and_Parts_by_Instrument/Electric_Bass_Parts/Electric_Bass_Bridges/Hipshot_4-String_Bass_Bridge.html

Welcome aboard John!

Dark chocolate digestives are an excellent choice of biscuit.

See you at Bilston!  :D
