This was a brilliant Frost* gig and this intro - pure genius. Classic Godfrey! :D Something Python-esque about it - right up my boulevard.

As for the intros for each band member later on in the set - hilarious!! :lol:

Nick did a stunning job, and everyone was on top form. I also think Jem's voice was 'up there' too - never enough mention is made of his vocals, so I'm bigging them up now. Top drawer.

Apart from enjoying our own little stint on stage on Sunday morning :D  - I'm trying not to be biased, but - this was THE gig for me as a member of the audience.

The only gig I sat through from start to finish without buying a Yeungling beer....that's seriously good... ;)

Massive congrats to the whole band.

I was very impressed with Jem's vocals throughout the set and think anyone who questions his singing ability doesn't know what they're talking about.  I love his tone, enunciation, that little bit of rasp he sometimes uses... it's all good.  And he definitely shined at RoSFest.  Just listen to Snowman.  Excellent.
...and I can feel the world is turning...turn around

lol, that was superb!

Is it just me, or does it remind anyone else of the Arnold J Rimmer song in Red Dwarf? :lol:  :lol:

No, it's not just you....but I only make the connection because, as Rob also implies, such a work of genius is crying out for visuals to go with it.
The version that plays out in my head looks marvellous!

I had a stab at rewiring the Frost*Fest intro for use on 240volts at the gigs over here....

    Our name is Frost*....how do you do?
    We're here today to play for you.
    The line-up's changed, we're now version 4,
    Not so much a band, more a revolving door!

    John Jowitt's gone, to seek pastures new
    So we've got Nathan King, from Level forty-two
    To join us in Frost*!

    To play some songs (Frost* songs)
    That is why we are here (that is why we are here)
    And Andy Edwards will also re-appear <drum flourish>,
    We're full of excitement, we're full of glee,
    Except for Dec, who thinks he needs a pee...

    The boys are ready, they're ready to go (never more so)
    And we might just get it right you never know <LesDawson style phrase from a Frost* song with last note sharp/flat?>
    So ladies and gents, it's finally time
    To welcome on stage in an orderly line,
    John, Jem, Dec, Nate, Andeeee!
    Wonderful Frost*!
    Glorious Frost*!
    W-O-N-D-R-E-F-U-L Frost*!

....just a bit of fun.  :D

Pedro, you are my hero! :lol:
You talk
You think you own me
You miss the point completely
These things I do they\'re not for you
I\'m sick and I\'m tired
Leave me alone...
