We go through those with him. It doesn't mean we nec...

Gilbert - I don't know what it is about him but the main set seems to be about an hour or so and then an hour/hour and a half of encores. He's certainly done that since at least 1999 when he toured with Steve and even the Imposters shows in 2002 followed a similar format.

KoS - Open your mind and your heart. Whilst it takes a little while to get into it you have to persevere. I personally prefer the rowdy rhythm records and I very very rarely play The Juliet Letters. However you pays your money etc. If you're a new fan then there are plenty of albums you should buy b...

It is still brilliant Sulky. The hat remains doffed.

Just looking at the Rope Leash dedication, does this now have to be changed to take Radio Silence out as the last track ie From Welcome to the Working Week to I'm in the Mood Again (or North or Impatience)?

Re: 100 For Me!! And Advice....

I do! I voted it as my favourite track although I had to ask if it counts as it's a bonus track. It's in another thread.
