Title: TINYFISH - ROSFEST 2011
Post by: Jim on November 05, 2010, 11:39:04 AM
Tinyfish are excited and proud to annouce that they have been confirmed to play at RoSfest in the USA next year (www.rosfest.com).

Tinyfish will be travelling to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania to perform on the opening night of the festival, Friday 20th May, where they hope to entertain, amuse and un-nerve the good people of North America for an hour and a half.

As a warm-up for this event, they will also be taking to the road for a mini tour, taking in Riffs Bar, Swindon on Friday 29th April and The Peel, Kingston Upon Thames on Saturday 30th April, supported on both nights by the fantastic "Also Eden", before heading north to The Robin 2, Bilston on Sunday 1 May where they will provide support for the inimitable Guy Manning.

Post by: A James on November 05, 2010, 11:42:57 AM
I'm not really  ;D

I actually already have my flights and hotel booked, and am just waiting for the Gold tickets to go on sale, when hopefully I can secure the same front row seat as last year.

This is absolutely brilliant news, and I wonder if the assembled mass of RoSfesters appreciate what is about to be unleashed upon them  :o :D

But very happy for you guys.

Very happy that a confirmed headline for the Peel is also announced though.

Superb news, and thoroughly well-deserved :)

I won't be able to attend the RosFest gig as I'm already booked to do my first ever DJ slot at Electric Ballroom - hey, who am I kidding, I wouldn't be able to afford it anyway!

However, I'm intending to go to all three warm-up gigs.

This is excellent news, and places Tinyfish in the top drawer of progressive rock - where they firmly belong.

It is in Gettysburg now - so I think the closest airport is Baltimore.

I am flying out on the afternoon of 18 May and landing back on the morning of 25 May and my total cost was £377.80.  Of which £239.80 was tax, fees and charges  ::)

Alas Tinyfish appear to have joined the rest of the "decent touring band" society who obviously plan their shows when i'm on the rig. :(
There's obviously somewhere online that bands go to check i'm working before planning dates.
I can see it now " visas? check, that bastard Benb at work on rig- check...." :)
Obviously the album launch was a mix up in dates on your part ;D
I believe Roger is currently looking at alternative dates in Dublin

It's nothing compared to the fabulous ales across the pond, but definitely more flavorful than the watery beer-like stuff that most people over here drink. 
Not that I dont drink that stuff too.. I'm not picky   ;D

Post by: A James on November 05, 2010, 07:59:10 PM
It's official now !

"TINYFISH ANNOUNCED FOR ROSFEST 2011

Tinyfish is a five-piece band based in South London (and Reading and Maidstone and Gothenburg, Sweden) with a deep and abiding interest in all forms of progressive music. The group formed in 2005 as part of an informal collective of musicians who enjoyed playing the acoustic open mic spots of London (UK).

Although profoundly influenced by the UK progressive scene, the band was keen to break from as many of the traditional prog clichés as possible. "I would die of boredom if I thought we were just recycling the songs and sound of the 70's" said lead singer and songwriter Simon Godfrey. To that end, Tinyfish chose to write and perform without the aid of a keyboard player, using guitar synths, electronic percussion and a myriad of special effects to obtain their distinctively melodic sound. "It forces us to think differently and keep away from musical comfort zones" adds lyricist Robert Ramsay.

Upon releasing their eponymous debut album in 2007, Tinyfish undertook their first UK tour to promote the release. Both the tour and the album were hailed as a great success with Classic Rock magazine naming it as one of the top 15 albums of the year.

In 2008 the band signed to respected progressive label F2 Records worldwide and they began work upon on their follow up album "The Big Red Spark". In 2009 they released an EP of rare material and a live DVD filmed in Poland.

2010 has now seen the release of "The Big Red Spark" which has already garnered critical acclaim, prompting an unprecedented (for a Progressive Rock album) 9/10 from Classic Rock Magazine's Geoff Barton. There has also been a welcome return to the Summer's End festival and finally the confirmation that drummer Leon Camfield has joined the band as a full-time and permanent member.

Guitarist Jim Sanders sums up Tinyfish so far: "We've come a long way from a bunch of friends jamming in a loftspace for fun. We're very pleased by how much success the band has encountered in such a short period of time but the only important goal for Tinyfish is whatever comes next."

Tinyfish are thrilled and flattered to have been asked to play at RoSfest in May 2011 and can't wait to perform in front of a North American audience for the first time.

I really doubt that I could warrant the cost in reality.  Its not just flights/hotels/tickets, it is getting away from the family for a couple of days in term time.  Especially as half term is the week after. 

But I think UB SHOULD use his inheritance this unwisely.  It is money he never had so it doesn't matter.

Hello everyone!

thank you for inviting us to your lovely festival so soon after we defected to the West. We are normally paid in Levi Jeans and Coca cola so this is a big step up for us.

I'm sure that our two albums of Ukrainian nose-flute music will go over a storm!

And Leon is looking forward to learning plenty of rude words from your most learned citizens. We asked him how he felt and he said "****". If you wish to stem the flow of rude words from Leon, you only have to say the magic words "King Crimson are brilliant" and he will then allow you to scratch his tummy.

Thanking you all once again!"

Hey Rob!
 
I've always wanted to ask this question...  What motivated you guys to write a concept album that ended up deviating so very far from the 1960's USA science fiction TV show character from which it drew its inspiration?
 
Why are you looking at me like that?  You know...  The big red SPOCK....?
 
Hmm.  Perhaps that lost something in translation to USA styled English?  ;-)
 
But seriously, all I can say is:
 
1)  Congrats, you guys rock!
2) King Crimson really are brilliant!
and
3)  Oops, I think I just spilled Coca-cola on my Levis!
 
Prog On!

Hey Rob! 
 
I've always wanted to ask this question...  What motivated you guys to write a concept album that ended up deviating so very far from the 1960's USA science fiction TV show character from which it drew its inspiration? 
 
Why are you looking at me like that?  You know...  The big red SPOCK....? 
 
Hmm.  Perhaps that lost something in translation to USA styled English?  ;-)
 
But seriously, all I can say is:
 
1)  Congrats, you guys rock!
2) King Crimson really are brilliant!
and
3)  Oops, I think I just spilled Coca-cola on my Levis! 
 
Prog On!

Subject: [Rosfest-official] Re: Welcome to our latest member

Sadly we don't have the budget to put on the full production but we'll certainly be playing more than half of the tracks from the album.

We are currently trying to convince Iain Huston who plays the part of The Refugee on The Big Red Spark to follow us over and join us on stage. He's is obsessed with the American civil war and so when I mentioned that we were playing in Gettysburg, his ears pricked up immediately. :)

Simon.


From: "Jeff&Karin Eberwein"
To: Rosfest-official@

Simon,
 
    Well, if it helps sweeten the deal for Mr. Huston, you can tell him that in addition to hundreds of progressive rock fans, he will also find himself among a fair amount of history buffs, including many who share his passion for the American Civil War.  Indeed, the only problem with having RoSfest in Gettysburg is the distraction of knowing that a mere couple of footsteps out the theater doors lies one of the most beautiful (and to us Americans, sacred) memorial battlefields in the world.  Come a little bit early, and perhaps a bit of a tour on Friday would satiate the historian in Iain.  Let me know, and something could be arranged.
 
Cordially,

Jeff Eberwein"

I assume for the absence of a link that Gold tickets have now sold out.

Mme Cholet has seen that The Reasoning are also playing and is being tempted.

How hard is it going to be to get a ticket in February? Also will I still be able to get reasonably priced flights and/or hotel? I'm not booking until I can book the whole thing.

I'm still not certain we're going, but it is looking a little more likely now.

I have waited until the January sales before and got burnt.

The current prices excluding taxes is around £128 (£377 including taxes). I doubt the prices will be lower than that in January.

British Airway has a sale on at the moments (1 day left) so if you can book now I would and have indeed done so.



Title: Re: TINYFISH - ROSFEST 2011
Post by: Uncle Bulgaria on November 08, 2010, 01:52:01 PM
Well my problem is that

1) I don't know whether we're definitely going.
2) I will need to have at least flights and tickets on seperate browser windows so that we definitely get both at the same time
3) I need to plan where else we're going on the East Coast (poss Washington and NYC) to see if we'll come back from Baltimore or not.

I won't pay double to sit in the first few rows, so we will have to wait until February 5th when standard tickets come out to book anything at all.

"RoSfest is pleased to announce Epiicycle as the Friday night opener for 2011.

Epiicycle, formed in 2006 by Anthony Roldan, is an experimental psychedelic progressive rock band drawing influences from bands from Porcupine Tree and Meshuggah to U2 and Depeche Mode. Their first two albums, 2009's White on White, and 2010's Her Daydream were recorded and produced by Anthony Roldan, before recruiting Lawrence Pence (drums/vocals), Joshua Kailer (keyboards/vocals) and Dayne Thatcher (bass/ vocals) to join the band, leaving Anthony with guitar and vocals.

The band has played several live shows, perfecting the live arrangements of their albums. A third, more psychedelic album is due in late 2010, called Touch The Fun, with plans for more album releases in the near future. As an additional bonus John Jowitt will be making a special guest appearance on a few songs.

Bourbon quota filed with my better half, Monika, who's a fool for Jim Beam, Maker's Mark and Jack Daniels. As am I.

"Tab" - British slang (usually north-eastern, Newcastle, Sunderland, Middlesbrough) for cigarette. As in "Drink Beer, smoke tabs!" which was part of a well known and very successful advertising campaign aimed at 8 to 10 year old boys on Tyneside during the 1980s. It was coupled with "Babies are great!", an equally successful promotion aimed squarely at younger teenage girls across the entire nation around the same time.

Quota for tabs filed by me.

"Yank" - as in "Doodle-dandy". Please don't be offended!   ;)

RoSfest is excited to announce one of Poland's premiere progressive rock bands, Quidam, as the Sunday night headliner.

Formed in 1991 under the name Deep River, the band soon established itself as an exciting and popular live act. Their debut album, Quidam (1996), featured members of Collage in guest appearances and gained the band widespread positive reviews. The band followed up this debut with Sny AnioÅ‚ów/Angel's Dream, recorded in both Polish and English language versions, and toured throughout Europe before headlining the 1999 Baja Prog festival in Mexicali, Mexico. The new millennium brought further touring and the albums The Time Beneath The Sky (2002) and, following major line-up changes, surREvival (2005). The band toured extensively in support of their latest album, Alone Together (2007), leading to invitations to play Reichenbach Prog Fest, Summer's End Festival, Night of the Prog, and France's Prog Sud.

Quidam will be performing material from their upcoming album, due in 2011, at their US debut at RoSfest.

About £500-£600.  I considered it, but it was just stupid.  I could go to 50 gigs here for that.

If you really want to go, then the closest airports would be Philadelphia, Washington & Baltimore.  Then you have to get from there to Gettysburg.  I don't know where it is in in Gettysburg though.

Good idea - I'll give some thought how best to run that. It would be quite nice to interview someone who's involved in running RosFest (in much the same way that Ian Fairholm does with Stephen for Summer's End), though I suspect I may end up interviewing James instead :)

Interview Paul - I'm off home on Wednesday and then dashing like a mad man to Holland, then back home to Sweden before jetting off to Montreal. After which I'll be back at home and THEN back for the mini tour. After which I'll be back home for a bit before heading off to RoSfest so, frankly, I'm a bit stacked out right now! Also, no one ever interviews paul or asks him anything more searching than "Hmmn. Nice car. How much?" and it's about time someone took an interest in the engine room of the band. All the belss and whistles are all fine and good but this ship ain't goin' nowhere without someone keep an eye on the oil pressure.

Title: Re: TINYFISH - ROSFEST 2011
Post by: AmazingWilf on March 22, 2011, 09:59:21 AM
It was most odd. I noticed on Sunday evening that my Skype credit had automatically topped up (email reminder), which was odd because I hadn't used it for ages and not made a chargeable call since I interviewed Leon and Jem for the TBRS special back in August of last year. So I logged in to have a look at my account details - it was showing some calls made to landlines and mobiles in 'interesting' destinations (including Iraq, Egypt, Jordan, Mali, Sierra Leone) between about quarter to five and seven o'clock that day. Only a couple of quid - but of course I immediately jumped on and loaded the Skype client to change my password, only to discover that all of my contacts had disappeared.

Anyway, I changed the password (which was a strong one in the first place) and then logged a call with Skype, to make them aware of the situation as much as anything...I didn't realistically think I was going to get my money back, but thought they should be made aware of the fact that someone had managed to break into one of their accounts, securied with a password that isn't amenable to dictionary-based hacking, and was using it to ring some very suspiciousl looking places.

Five emails later, I've given up on Skype support, and I'm going to email someone else (as James suggested). All I've had are pre-scripted responses about how "your account is safe with us" and "we appreciate you're worried, but rest assured everything is fine".

Not exactly the most terrifying thing in the world, but a little odd, and slightly unnerving.

Special Offer For RoSfest Tickets.

The excitement is building up as we have fewer than forty-eight days left until the eighth annual Rites of Spring Festival. The Festival is currently held at the beautiful Majestic Theater in Gettysburg, PA on May 20th, 21st and 22nd. The weekend event will include performances by Epiicycle - USA, Tinyfish -UK, Moon Safari - Sweden, Osada Vida - Poland, Phideaux - USA, Galactic Collective - USA, Daemonia - Italy, Mars Hollow - USA, District 97 - USA, The Reasoning - UK and Quidam - Poland.

RoSfest would like to remind people to buy their tickets now and help make this year's event a phenomenal success. Your support can help ensure a return of the Rites of Spring Festival in 2012.

The RoSfest family and staff understand the disappointment at the loss of NEARfest this year. We sincerely hope that the festival cancellation is temporary and that NEARfest can come back even stronger next year.

We would like to show our support for NEARfest and keep the prog flame alive within our community. Anyone who buys a regular RoSfest ticket will, in extension, be helping out both festivals. For each new full weekend ticket sold during the month of April, RoSfest will donate $5.00 to NEARfest to help ensure the festival's future.

Accommodations are still available at the official RoSfest hotel, the Eisenhower Hotel and Conference Center. Book your rooms now at the Eisenhower Hotel.
For more info go to www.rosfest.com .

Thank you for your support.
George Roldan

I keep hearing this but since my copy hasn't turned up yet, I can't comment.

But I did read somewhere that SW only wrote (or co-wrote) one of the songs this time around so it could be that it's less of a collaboration and that people who like Aviv less than Steven are disappointed?

From cellist Katinka Kleijn, "Dear District 97 fans, I am very sad to announce that due to the commitments that my job at the Chicago Symphony as well as solo projects require, I can no longer fulfill my responsibilities as a band member of District 97. It has been a blast (literally  and an amazing adventure for me, that widened my musical mind and horizon. The musicians of District 97 are some of the most inspiring and brilliant musicians I have ever played with, and I know that very great things are in the future for District 97. Thank you everybody for your awesome support in the last years and for listening!!!"

We are currently speaking to ROSFest about recording the event and will let everyone know shortly how that pans out. A live recording is even more required as over the tour we sold our last copies of the CD version of One Night On Fire (Live In Poland). I'll be asking Aggie at Metal Mind to see if there are any more copies available but if not, a potential new live album would be most welcome.

They let me in!

BTW Both the DOHS guy and the custom guy said they would keep an eye out for Leon.

There is some major road works going on close to the hotel so I had to do a major detour down some rural roads before arriving at the hotel. If I were you guys I would print off the instructions from the hotel website instead of relying on google maps like I did.

The hotel is huge and there is a certain "the shining" quality to it except it has a pool.

Now it is time to find some healthy American breakfast.

Thank you all.

Today we are gathering one last time to rehearse (for a couple of hours) before packing up our stuff (in our old kit bags?) and readiness for a very early start tomorrow.

Everything seems to be in order. All of us are not taking much in the way of clothing so that we have as much space as is humanly possible for equipment in our baggage. As a result, I will probably try buy a few items of clothing while I'm there (a tactic which has served me well on previous trips abroad).

I also met my dad yesterday and told him where we were going and what we were doing which pleased him no end. He said wished he could have been coming with us which would have been SO cool as that would have meant we would have had the complete cast from the record on stage but sadly it was not to be, Maybe next time.  ;)

I'm going to have a shower now.  :)

Everything seems to be in order. All of us are not taking much in the way of clothing so that we have as much space as is humanly possible for equipment in our baggage.

FYI Laundry machine available for self-service at the hotel. Another thing to do during the 3rd band on Sunday.

Back at the hotel now getting stuff ready for return to the venue for soundcheck. The kids are grabbing a quick nap (Simon and Leon) and Jim is showing his gear (fnar,fnar) to Mike Flavin.

The flight in was a bit of a bugger. We got diverted to Atlantic City and sat on the runway for 45 mins while a storm passed over Philly international. Into bed at midnight (5.00am) UK time and woken again at 4.50am local due to the previous occupant of the room not turning the room's alarm clock off. Whoever you are sir, you are a cock.

Feeling much better after an early afternoon snooze and feeling well up for playing tonight.

Ah, Leon has just appeared. God help America now. :)

The guys were awesome.  Those of you who were at the warm up gigs may recall they got better with each one...well, they continued that improvement and pulled off the best performance I have seen from them.  Most definitely did themselves justice and the number of tshirts being worn and cds getting signed would appear to be testament to that.

They were introduced by some tosser and started with the material from The Big Red Spark.  The sound was perfect - Simon said it was so clear on stage he could hear his own strings.  I thought his vocals sounded the best I have heard them.  Jim was on fire, Leon was crazy brilliance, Paul held it all together and Rob transfixed the audience.  There really was a reverential silence at times.  Iain Houston's performance was full of emotion and atmosphere, very powerful - he said he really fed off the larger audience.  There was huge applause at the end of that segment before they went into Wide Awake At Midnight.  The June Jar featured Andy Ditchfield on acoustic guitar, which went down very well.  Leon introduced Driving All Night after Simon's guitar lost all semblance of tuning, then Fly Like A Bird, Nine Months On Fire, and the last performance of All Hands Lost, followed by a standing ovation and calls for more - but sadly no time for an encore.

Got to say, I was immensely proud of what they did tonight, and they should justifiably feel very pleased with themselves.

That's excellent news and it's going to be the icing on the cake of what is going to be a great day here. Well done, chaps. As everyone has said, there was never any doubt of it being anything less than brilliant, but it sounds like you went straight over that and beyond. Bravo.  :)

If it were me the 'help' would be tightening the buckles. For my own good you understand.

Well done chaps.

BTW. How did that tosser introduce the band. I somehow feel that "Here's Tinyfish. They're British(ish). I spam their forum" wouldn't really be good enough. Apart from pronouncing the brackets, 'cos that's really impressive.

Tinyfish followed by Moon Safari have definitely been the highlight of the weekend; for me and for many others, I should think.  good bands playing, but nobody like those two bands, and Tinyfish the best of the lot. and I'm not just saying that.  the music is so fresh, and original.  I might perhaps write some short reviews later, but for now, I'll keep my sometimes cynical mouth shut.  ;)

After George had said I was over from London, it was something along the lines of...

"I saw The Wall in London on Tuesday - that Roger Waters knows how to put on a show {crowd cheer}.  And George knows how to put on a show too {crowd cheer}.  Last year was my first RoSfest and here I am back again.  Last year I brought a sample disc of one of my favourite bands which some of you got {some cheers from the crowd} and when they brought out their new album I sent George a copy, and he must have liked it because here I am introducing them to you, and I think you are in for a treat.  It is my honour to present for your pleasure not only the world's smallest Progressive Rock band, but also the band who used to drink in the same pub as Roger Waters {crowd cheer} - Tinyfish !"

The guys were awesome.  Those of you who were at the warm up gigs may recall they got better with each one...well, they continued that improvement and pulled off the best performance I have seen from them.  Most definitely did themselves justice and the number of tshirts being worn and cds getting signed would appear to be testament to that.

They were introduced by some tosser and started with the material from The Big Red Spark.  The sound was perfect - Simon said it was so clear on stage he could hear his own strings.  I thought his vocals sounded the best I have heard them.  Jim was on fire, Leon was crazy brilliance, Paul held it all together and Rob transfixed the audience.  There really was a reverential silence at times.  Iain Houston's performance was full of emotion and atmosphere, very powerful - he said he really fed off the larger audience.  There was huge applause at the end of that segment before they went into Wide Awake At Midnight.  The June Jar featured Andy Ditchfield on acoustic guitar, which went down very well.  Leon introduced Driving All Night after Simon's guitar lost all semblance of tuning, then Fly Like A Bird, Nine Months On Fire, and the last performance of All Hands Lost, followed by a standing ovation and calls for more - but sadly no time for an encore.

Got to say, I was immensely proud of what they did tonight, and they should justifiably feel very pleased with themselves.

Great write up, James; thanks for sharing the experience!  I too never had any doubt it would be nothing short of awesome, but still very pleased it was!  Well done guys - thoroughly deserved!

Title: Re: TINYFISH - ROSFEST 2011
Post by: A James on May 22, 2011, 11:17:44 AM
Stupid hotel wifi...will try posting this again...

Phideaux were excellent yesterday - certainly as good as at Summer's End, if not better.  They played a selection from Snowtorch to start with, then Thank You For The Evil, Darkness At Noon, The Doom Suite (Micro Softdeathstar, Candybrain and Crumble), Chupacabras, Helix, Microdeath Softstar, and The Tempest Of Mutiny.

We heard during the day that The Reasoning would be playing a half hour acoustic set at the aftershow party, and then later heard that Phideaux would also be doing an acoustic set.  When I got there Phideaux were setting up, and their acoustic set featured keyboards, electric guitar and violin - they played The Claws Of A Crayfish, The Search For Terrestrial Life, part of Snowtorch (Part 2) and then an end thing which may have been the end of Helix.

There was no sign of The Reasoning and George saw Simon and asked if Tinyfish wanted to get up and do something.  Next thing I know Leon is up there on drums accompanying a guy on keyboards - can't remember the name of the guy off the top of my head, but his band brought out an album before RoSfest last year - the two of them made a great sound together.  And then a certain Mike Flavin (landslug) is up with them, playing Jim's guitar.  Finally Simon, Jim and Paul get up there and are joined by Andy Ditchfield for The June Jar...with the guy playing along on keyboards.  Tommo gets a mention in some slightly changed lyrics and there's a 'hello again RoSfest'.  Rob gets up after they have finished The June Jar, Simon saying "we're just going to play a couple of numbers, then we'll get out of the way for some real musicians."  There is a "special Mexican intro" to Motorville, "with two pairs of pants and a very short drummer", and a 'welcome to RoSfest' within the chorus.  Andy let's everyone know it is Jim's birthday and gives him a birthday cake hat to wear while we all sing Happy Birthday to him, and then they do a quiet one, because "it's the only other one we can do without all the technology" - Driving All Night, with a "why aren't you sleeping, Frans ?" (he'll have discovered Tinyfish by now).  Simon manages to do his little hands on knees dance, to much applause, and finishes with "Come on, it's time for someone else to come up and be a dickhead."  Andy Ditchfield comes up.  He plays a song for Frans Keylard - Wouldn't It Be Good by Nik Kershaw, and Jim is seen waving his lighter during the chorus.

Still no sign of The Reasoning when I left once that had finished.

Sorry not to have posted before now but the net access has been sporadic at best for my phone.

The weekend has been an absolutely fantastic success. I've lost count of all the compliments we've had concerning the show. Just amazed at how many people were wearing Tinyfish T-shirts on the Saturday day.

The band played and impromptu set at the after show party (again with party animal and part time son of Satan that is Andy Ditchfield:)) which was immense fun.

Lots of parties and late nights which means we are very tired today. Currently in the distinctly un-PC restaurant called Hooters, wolfing down burgers and cheesecake in preparation for tonight's long flight back to the UK.

Will post again once we are home.

That really sucks as they were not very lucky with the trip going out there either. I can see that there is a flight scheduled for 10am which is expected at 11:30. That might be them then.
Of course there might also be problems for Jim to fly to Sweden because of the volcanic playfulness.

Back home at last. We took a taxi from Heathrow back to Paul's place then split the gear up so that Leon could drive me back to my place. All the equipment is now back in the studio and stored (if not unpacked).

The flight itself was much faster than the outward leg (it only took 6 1/2 hours as opposed to 8 hours) but I haven't slept now for 36 hours which means I am a little punch drunk right now simply through lack of shut eye. The whole of the band are in a similar situation so maybe I shouldn't complain.

Bands of the festival for me;

Moon Safari
- A fantastic set on Friday night and a brilliant bunch of guys. They were party animals and had all the ladies there panting with desire with their buff bodies and Nordic good looks. Jim too a superb shot of their keyboard player asleep in a hotel corridor in just his pants after he failed to remember where his room was.

Mars Hollow - A real surprise in the church slot on the Sunday. Easily my No.1 band of the festival as they had loads of energy and played some blinding material. I am making it my personal mission to get these guys on the bill at a future Summers End. I think they will bring the house down.

District 97 - Holy crap these guys are good. A magnificent blend of Math Rock and Power Prog. A very modern sound with the best female vocalist that I have heard in the genre for many a year. She also managed to dance along to some incredibly complex arrangements and make it look funky. A tremendous band.

The other big personal highlight was getting to hang out with Rog and Cairn Grow at last. Two of the coolest and most lovely people you could now wish to meet and I feel very fortunate to have finally met them face to face.

HUGE thanks goes out to George and the team at RoSFest for allowing us to play and for being such excellent hosts. The experience was double the fun because of them and our appreciation knows no bounds.

More later. I need to sleep now.  :)

From the Yahoo mailing list...

"My fifth year in a row. I am starting to not feel like a noob anymore!

I was very impressed with the diverse array of talented bands this year. They were all pretty good IMHO.

For me, District97 stole the show. That band was absolutely SMOKING!! And who ever thought someone could DANCE to prog and make it look so good?... through every song... ALL THE WAT THROUGH!! And then they are followed by The Reasoning where Rachel continued with the Prog-dance phenomenon!

Maybe next year, at the Friday night party, we could hold a Prog Dance Contest. That would be a hoot! Everyone could post their favourite Prog song that they would like to see someone dance to. Might need some medical waiver forms, though. LOL!

Other bands that I was super impressed with were Osada Vida, Mars Hollow, Tinyfish and, of course, Moon Safari! I still think all the other bands were great... but these ones really stuck with me. I am officially a Mars Hollow and Tinyfish fan after this weekend.

Another haul of CDs and DVDs... vendors must love me. I now have an increased catalog of Prog music to explore that will surely banish whatever traces of noob-ness I have left!

So much great music this weekend, including Going for the One. Next year my wife insists that we get a room not bordering the pool area, though. Some of you folks are just party ANIMALS!

A personal thank you to George. You do GREAT festivals, dude! Keep 'em coming and I'll keep coming. Here's hoping you get some well deserved R&R.

See you all next year!

Keith Paterson"

Mini-review from Dale, which has also gone on Progressive Ears.  I shall have to drop him a line to let him know I was there  ::)

"Friends: A++++++++++++++++++ <insert infinity symbol here!> This is what makes my world go round and I needed this years Rosfest more than ever, especially in light of the Nearfest cancellation. I tried to visit with everyone as much as possible but got the feeling that I spent too little time with everyone and almost no time with some. (Where the hell was James Allen hiding all weekend??? He was the first person I thought of when I heard Tinyfish would be playing.) Many, many, many apologies to all the fine friends whose names didn't pop into my head immediately. It was "people you haven't seen in year" sensory overload syndrome but, truth be told, my neurons, ganglia and axions just don't fire as well anymore. (Hell, they didn't fire very well in the first place!)

Tinyfish: REALLY enjoyed this band. They were one of the few 'unknowns' that I checked out in advance, thanks to the sampler cd James Allen had given me at Nearfest last year. Very good lead guitarist with a great sound who played many beautiful melodic lines. Really liked Simon Godfrey's vocals, too. I also enjoyed the occasional walk-on by Rob Ramsey, who added a touch of theatricality to the performance with his costume changes and bold 'readings', which is a nice little feature to a lot of their music. The DeeExpus guitarist came out for a song and was extremely vibrant and energized. I told him later to try the decaf! Strong performance overall."

Well, welcome back everyone.  Here is another snippet from progressive ears:

Quote
Just briefly, my favorites:

1. Leon from Tinyfish
2. Quidam
3. Reasoning - I missed first half hour and someone walking out told me "Way too Loud" I did not find that the case and enjoyed very much.

Skipped for Sleep:

Galactic Collective


Not my preference (I won't go into details as YMMV)

1. Phideaux
2. Moon Safari

Prog_Traveller on PE :

"Tinyfish- Very good set. Who says a band can't focus mainly on just regular songs and still be prog? These guys had a nice sound. Nothing over the top or complicated but just good songs. 8/10"

Only Quidam and Phideaux got a higher mark.

Bil0604 from PE :

"Friday:
Tinyfish

I did not know what to expect since I was unfamiliar with Tinyfish, but I was pleasantly surprised. Their opening song which I assumed came from their most recent release, "The Big Red Spark", was dramatic and a wonderful intro to a superb set. Band leader Simon Godfrey's rhythm guitar was central to all the music and he was in good form vocally. Jim Sanders displayed excellent command of the lead guitar; crisp, clear short solos. Paul Worwood on bass and Leon Camfield on drums were also excellent and of course Rob Ramsey's poetic interludes were a joy.
Excellent set well played overall.

I think this band deserved an "A"."

I've had a sleep now.

I had such an excellent time. I'm afraid I can't tell you the thing that made me laugh the most because Leon said it...

I haven't partied like that, well, ever, really. And hats off to Moon Safari and Ditch for partying hardest of all :D

"oh god I've eaten too much"
"oh god I've drunk too much"
"At least you aren't as drunk as Franz"
"oh that's right"

It was great meeting all these lovely people who all wanted photos with us and things signed... We are now undergoing 'fame decompression' and I have to go to work tomorrow.

Phideaux were awesome. Mars Hollow were fab too. The lead singer looked like Jimmy Page and sounded like Jon Anderson.

I shall have to listen to District 97's album because I don't think I was in the best position to appreciate them live without. Funny you should mention the dancing - my first reaction was "omg, she dances like I do!"

As Simon said, it ended up feeling as if it was an enormous gig at the Peel, the reception we got was so good. Plus a bunch of people missed the main band cos they were too busy rabbiting outside :D

As for us, we were excellent :D

Leon was on ****ing fire though. A bunch of people asked me afterwards: "How does he do that?"
I don't think he could have done better if he had actually been on fire.

From gryphs on Progressive Ears :

"Tinyfish: Loved them. Very high energy show and they started out with a positive attitude and then fed off the audience. The guitarist had a searing tone, and although a lot of his playing seemed blues-based, it worked within the context of the music. And as others have mentioned, the drummer was the highlite of the after hours "shows". Listening to The Big Red Spark as I type for the 4th time and love it."

WHAT A FUUCKING WEEKEND!  Seriously, if you could get a decent cup of coffee over there, I don't think I would ever have come home.  So many highlights, it would be impossible to name them all, but I'll try.  So -

- Being introduced by James A onstage
- Meeting the Grow's
- Moon Safari singing harmony acapella in the pool
- The Gettysburg battlefield tour
- Getting in the water (I'm petrified of water)
- Teaching loads of Americans the phrase "Kick him in the knackers"
- Playing an almost-real mellotron whilst jamming with Mike Flavin
- The Malt Shop
- Being able to stop traffic by merely stepping into the road
- The game, "Nicaraguan Death Squad"


Title: Re: TINYFISH - ROSFEST 2011
Post by: Jim on May 25, 2011, 08:05:59 AM
To be honest, the only reason we needed a plane to get home was we were so tired, otherwise we could have quite easily floated home on our collective high after what was, by any measure available to us, the most astonishing weekend.

Many of my personal highlights have been listed by the others already but I'd like to add my own personal thanks and love to Roger and Cairn for having a) made the journey from Vermont and b) being two of the loveliest people you could care to meet. Getting some quiet time to hang out with the two of you away from the gig and the parties was perfect and hearing Roger give a verse one rendition of The Roasted Swan from Carmina Burana was simply electrifying.

However, some kudos and shout-outs are required elsewhere:

1. Ditch and Stacy - we love you.
2. Lincoln Diner and GarryOwen's - life support.
3. RoSfest admin staff - without them there would be no RoSfest and to say they do the most proffessional job is an understatement.
4. Kevin Madrishin and Bauder Audio Sysytems' Backline and Front of House Crews - getting the job done so that all we had to worry about was actually playing.
5. George Roldan, Krista Phillips, Donna O'Donnell and Glenn Fitzgerald - stars of the highest order and absolutely wonderful, wonderful people.

Highlights:
1. Frans Keylard so drunk he could not stand without support: "Helpl! The Russian girls are trying to kill me with Apple Vodka!"
2. Learning that Leon has been coaxed into the pool, him having nearly killed Ditch the night before after a casual joke about throwing Leon in.
3. US Satellite Talk Radio... you wouldn't believe...
4. Little Round Top and Pickett's Charge. Look it up. Sobering.
5. Iain's delivery of Refugee
6. Two standing ovations in one gig

You know how sometimes the tiny little annoyances can cloud an otherwise great event? I can't think of a single, little, teeny, tiny thing that got on my nerves this weekend. Not one.

Loved it. When can we go back?

I don't think he could have done better if he had actually been on fire.

Funny, isn't it?  At Summer's End, I didn't play a bad note & thought it was terrible.  At ROSfest, I played a phrase so badly we've already discussed how we're going to edit it out of the DVD, & yet I feel so happy about my performance.

so if I was interested in signing anyone--out of interest which band did you feel have the most wideranging appeal and strong live show and it cant be all instrumental or covers. . It may of course not be the band you actually "liked" the most yourself.
Record/Distribution deal anyone?

Certainly seemed to be...but then I would have no idea how much a band would expect to take for merchandise at an event like that.

Phideaux had 8 cds, a vinyl album and about 5 different tshirts - so there would be a lot available to buy, even for those who already had most of it.

I had to juggle between my main luggage and hand luggage when I got to the airport because I had gone up to 25 kilos and they wanted an extra $60 for that pleasure.

So the box of The Big Red Spark cds went into hand luggage and all was sorted...people fell asleep before I could sell them on the plane  ;D

alansmithee from PE :

"Tinyfish - seen these guys a few times in the UK. Always much better live than on record IMO, and always very entertaining. I was not surprised they won the audience over, they are just a very funny bunch of guys, especially Simon Godfrey and Leon Camfield on drums. And they seemed to keep the Rosfest crowd entertained for pretty much the whole weekend.

Thanks also to George and Krista for putting it all together, and to Bo and James for giving me a lift from Baltimore on Thursday."

So now we know who he is  ;D

MoZo :

"I did not have any real criticisms of the bands. The Friday night lineup of Tinyfish and Moon Safari was outstanding. The spoken word used by Tinyfish actually fits within the scope of the music, unlike some spoken word. Some may not think the 'song oriented' approach of some of Tinyfish's music is 'prog', but good music is good music."

Might be worth getting in touch with him as he has a radio show over in the States...

Some parts from a report from Kerry of Mars Hollow :

"A fascinating place, and to see the various band names on the marquee of The Majestic Theater right there in the heart of downtown was something to behold. I wondered what the locals thought a "Tinyfish" or a "Phideaux" was!"

"Speaking of after parties, Going For The One totally KILLED on Friday night. Man, to hear that awesome music played SO SO SO perfectly was a trip. Loved those guys! And Saturday's after party with Phideaux and later, Mike Vissagio alongside Leon Camfield from Tinyfish -- amazing stuff."

"Tinyfish were next and they blew my mind. Excellent songwriting, tight musicianship, engagingly funny, awesome vocals -- the guys just brought it. Drummer Leon kicked so much ass and Simon Godfrey was an excellent front man; the whole band were great. Loved the various narration situations during a couple of the pieces -- very art-rock! I definitely walked away a fan and am looking forward to exploring their new album ASAP. Their last song had icicles running down my spine – a FANTASTIC over-the-top, classic capital "P" Prog bombastic chord progression at the end -- damn, I love that stuff!"

Here's one from "Yanks2009" on PE:

Quote
Tinyfish

I knew nothing about these guys and thought for sure we'd be getting some typical, safe neo-prog, especially after the first minute or so of the opening song. But very quickly that changed with the drummer kicking things into overdrive, and some hard edged sounds following. Neo, sure, but with some bite, reminding me a bit of Pallas. The drummer was surprising due to his small stature, but he could really pound the drums, and was entertaining to watch. I wasn't too happy at first hearing triggered keys, but really, keyboards are not a huge part of their melodic sound. Soon the row in front of me was filled with members of Epiicycle, and yeah, that included the attractive violinist, an added bonus for sure. They seemed to like Tinyfish as well, but I don't think they stayed beyond this performance.

Vocals were strong, especially the lead singer, a very smooth delivery. At times he reminded me of Dennis Deyoung with his higher range and slightly nasal tone. But for the lower register, I just couldn't place who he reminded me of. Good voice either way. The lead guitarist laid down some tasty riffs, and I was surprised how well they could rock out. Between songs and sometimes during them was something I normally hate, spoken word! But instead there was a goofy charm to it. I was surprised to learn "the poet guy" as I called him is actually the band lyricist, so it made even more sense to have him involved, and added theatricality to the show. He wore various costumes to tell the story from the album "The Big Red Spark", including a gas mask and a military officer uniform. Lead vocalist Simon Godfrey was quite funny throughout, I wish I could remember his many quips and jokes between songs. At one point they brought out a guest to play some spirited acoustic guitar. Godfrey mentioned something about the guys drinking ability, but that he was sober for this performance. Sounds worse when I write this, but it was pretty damn funny. Overall, a fun set, and enough to convince me to buy their current album. Even got to hang with some of the band, and made a quick friend in the drummer by giving him a beer, a rather strong DogfishHead IPA. Nice show, the first of several strong performances.

Grade: A-

As with all of these things, I guess that different people will come back with different opinions of what is "good" and what is "not so good".  Unusually for PE, there have been very few negative comments about anyone.  I've seen 5 of these bands, and 3 are in my personal 10 favourites, and another one I consider very good.


Title: Re: TINYFISH - ROSFEST 2011
Post by: Jim on May 26, 2011, 09:00:27 AM
To be honest, the only reason we needed a plane to get home was we were so tired, otherwise we could have quite easily floated home on our collective high after what was, by any measure available to us, the most astonishing weekend.

Many of my personal highlights have been listed by the others already but I'd like to add my own personal thanks and love to Roger and Cairn for having a) made the journey from Vermont and b) being two of the loveliest people you could care to meet. Getting some quiet time to hang out with the two of you away from the gig and the parties was perfect and hearing Roger give a verse one rendition of The Roasted Swan from Carmina Burana was simply electrifying.

However, some kudos and shout-outs are required elsewhere:

1. Ditch and Stacy - we love you.
2. Lincoln Diner and GarryOwen's - life support.
3. RoSfest admin staff - without them there would be no RoSfest and to say they do the most proffessional job is an understatement.
4. Kevin Madrishin and Bauder Audio Sysytems' Backline and Front of House Crews - getting the job done so that all we had to worry about was actually playing.
5. George Roldan, Krista Phillips, Donna O'Donnell and Glenn Fitzgerald - stars of the highest order and absolutely wonderful, wonderful people.

Highlights:
1. Frans Keylard so drunk he could not stand without support: "Helpl! The Russian girls are trying to kill me with Apple Vodka!"
2. Learning that Leon has been coaxed into the pool, him having nearly killed Ditch the night before after a casual joke about throwing Leon in.
3. US Satellite Talk Radio... you wouldn't believe...
4. Little Round Top and Pickett's Charge. Look it up. Sobering.
5. Iain's delivery of Refugee
6. Two standing ovations in one gig

You know how sometimes the tiny little annoyances can cloud an otherwise great event? I can't think of a single, little, teeny, tiny thing that got on my nerves this weekend. Not one.

Loved it. When can we go back?

I know it usually does not make sense to quote one's own posts but I felt I needed to highlight a MASSIVE omission from my list of highlights and those we needed to thank publicly.

Thank you, from the bottom of our collective heart to Mike Flavin without whom the weekend in Gettysburg would quite literally not have happened. He saved our arses within an hour of us touching down in the USA and continued to be an indispensable additional member of Team 'Fish the whole weekend. We loved every minute spent hanging out with Mike and he surprised all of us by demonstrating that he's no slouch on either the drums or the guitar. An all round lovely, lovely man who will be long remembered among the five of us (and Iain, I'm sure) as the man who introduced us to his favourite North American dining franchise - Michael Flavin - WE SALUTE YOU!

another review (at least I hope this isn't a duplicate) (http://progmistress.wordpress.com/2011/05/26/live-review-rosfest-2011-prog-is-a-battlefield/)

I'll quote the pertinent parts, though those that were there (and others) may want to peruse the rest of the review.  I disagree with her on several points, but that's prog!

Quote
Though I was not familiar with Tinyfish’s music, I remembered guitarist/vocalist Simon Godfrey as one of the old-time members of the progressive rock forum where I started my ‘career’, and had often seen the band mentioned there. However, even if I had never had the opportunity to check them out, their set (which, regrettably, we had to leave early due to a prior engagement) was one of the real surprises of the weekend for both of us. Simply put, Simon Godfrey is an incredible vocalist, probably the best heard over the weekend (no mean feat, since there was quite a bunch of fine singers on display), with a strong, passionate voice that adds depth and interest to the band’s classy musical output. With a sound harking back to the glory days of vintage Neo-Prog, clean and melodic yet with a nicely sharp edge – more Pink Floyd than Genesis – immaculate musicianship, a powerhouse of a drummer in Leon Camfield,  and a liberal sprinkling of that wonderful English humour, they delivered a flawless set that left the audience deeply impressed.  The narration (courtesy of lyricist Rob Ramsay) of the background story to their latest album, The Big Red Spark =  an elaborate sci-fi concept that has gained a lot of critical acclaim since its release – also injected a welcome dose of theatrics into the proceedings. Tinyfish would definitely have deserved to play a longer set, and I would love to see them again in the future.


woot!

Quote
Quidam through my review of their live album, The Fifth Season, a well-rounded, very pleasing effort that had left me much more impressed than I had originally expected. Anyway, any misgivings on the part of some members of the audience notwithstanding, the band played an impressive set, though tinged with special poignancy on account of the news that frontman Bartek Kossowicz had received on the same day from Poland – his wife had lost their first child.
That's awful.  I feel for both of them.

I think that is a misunderstanding - there was a discussion of the point after the show and we believe he was talking about a friend, rather than himself - still awful, of course.

Hello everyone, I am the author of the ROSfest review. First of all, I'd like to thank you for taking the time to read it and comment on it. Then, I wish to apologize for calling The Reasoning an English band - as a European and frequent visitor to the UK, I should have known better than to write something like that without checking first ;). In any case, I edited my review immediately after seeing the 'ouch' comment, which I amply deserved.... Unfortunately, when you write an almost 5,000-word review, as crammed with details as this one, you're bound to make some mistakes, no matter how careful you try to be! Hope there will be no hard feelings...

Anyway, as I wrote in my review, I thoroughly enjoyed Tinyfish's set, and hope to be able to see them play again in the US as soon as possible. I remember Simon as a member of the ProgArchives forum when I first joined in 2005, before I had any inkling that I would end up moving to the US and seeing Tinyfish play live at an American prog festival. Small world indeed...

Post by: RobH on May 27, 2011, 07:40:56 PM
Ah - no offence to you of course - the Welsh get quite upset when they're called English.  The worst gaff of this sort is on a Frost* DVD - I don't know which (Pedro??) - where Jem writes "Glasgow, England".  Now that is just asking for trouble.

It is, as I said elsewhere, an excellent review.  I didn't go, but reading all of these reviews made me feel that I really wanted to.  I've seen a number of the bands before, and I would have loved to have seen Quidam & Moon Safari (again) in particular.

Hi Progmistress welcome to the forum, don't worry about The Reasoning 2/5ths of them are English and I don't think the other 3 would take offence and only one of them can actually speak Welsh :)

Thanks so much for the warm welcome! Don't worry, no rude things were said... This forum looks like a very nice and civilized place, especially in comparison with some prog forums I know of ;)! Disagreeing is part of life, and I am aware that my views are sometimes a bit idiosyncratic. However, I always try to be respectful of artists and other people's tastes, unlike many so-called 'professional' music writers.

Simon, my first handle on ProgArchives was GhostRider, then I switched to Raff, which is a shortened form of my first name. Anyway, if any of you are on Facebook, you can find me as Raffaella Berry, my real name (and the one with which I sign my reviews on another website, ProgSphere). I met my husband (Michael aka Micky) on ProgArchives, but nowadays we don't really visit there a lot - the place has become too contentious, and I am happy with being 'self-employed' so to speak!

*sighs*

Okay, James, one more time...Facebook is a social networking service and website launched in February 2004, operated and privately owned by Facebook, Inc. As at January 2011, Facebook had more than 600 million active users. Users may create a personal profile, add other users as friends, and exchange messages, including automatic notifications when they update their profile. Additionally, users may join common-interest use...

Oh, I can't go on... ;D

Ah-ha! Yes I remember both those names. It's great to be in contact with you again and happy to see that life is treating you well. I agree the Prog Archives can be a little like walking into the pages of Lord Of The Flies nowadays but I guess that is the problem any popular site faces. So far (as you say) we seem to have eluded it here. Fingers crossed.

All the very best to you and yours m'luv.  ;D

I have the setlists for The Reasoning (signed) and Daemonia (signed by everyone except the main guy, and given to me at one of the after-parties), and I also know what Tinyfish played - will post that when I get home.

Is it Brendan asking on ProggyEars ?

They were introduced by some tosser and started with the material from The Big Red Spark.  There was huge applause at the end of that segment before they went into Wide Awake At Midnight.  The June Jar featured Andy Ditchfield on acoustic guitar, which went down very well.  Leon introduced Driving All Night after Simon's guitar lost all semblance of tuning, then Fly Like A Bird, Nine Months On Fire, and the last performance of All Hands Lost, followed by a standing ovation and calls for more - but sadly no time for an encore.

There's the Tinyfish setlist.


Title: Re: TINYFISH - ROSFEST 2011
Post by: Simon on May 29, 2011, 02:16:09 PM
Out of The BRS suite, we didn't play; A Million Differences, Bad Weather Road and Building The Machine.


Title: Re: TINYFISH - ROSFEST 2011
Post by: A James on May 29, 2011, 02:20:59 PM
Phideaux were excellent yesterday - certainly as good as at Summer's End, if not better.  They played a selection from Snowtorch to start with, then Thank You For The Evil, Darkness At Noon, The Doom Suite (Micro Softdeathstar, Candybrain and Crumble), Chupacabras, Helix, Microdeath Softstar, and The Tempest Of Mutiny.

We heard during the day that The Reasoning would be playing a half hour acoustic set at the aftershow party, and then later heard that Phideaux would also be doing an acoustic set.  When I got there Phideaux were setting up, and their acoustic set featured keyboards, electric guitar and violin - they played The Claws Of A Crayfish, The Search For Terrestrial Life, part of Snowtorch (Part 2) and then an end thing which may have been the end of Helix.

Finally Simon, Jim and Paul get up there and are joined by Andy Ditchfield for The June Jar...with the guy playing along on keyboards.  Tommo gets a mention in some slightly changed lyrics and there's a 'hello again RoSfest'.  Rob gets up after they have finished The June Jar, Simon saying "we're just going to play a couple of numbers, then we'll get out of the way for some real musicians."  There is a "special Mexican intro" to Motorville, "with two pairs of pants and a very short drummer", and a 'welcome to RoSfest' within the chorus.  Andy let's everyone know it is Jim's birthday and gives him a birthday cake hat to wear while we all sing Happy Birthday to him, and then they do a quiet one, because "it's the only other one we can do without all the technology" - Driving All Night, with a "why aren't you sleeping, Frans ?" (he'll have discovered Tinyfish by now). 

That is the Phideaux setlist and the Tinyfish after-show party setlist.

I need a camera for my holiday (even though it has been cancelled) so if there had been any shops selling shiny things in any part of town I would have found them...but I came back empty handed, and next weekend I will be checking out the shops in Reading.

I know it usually does not make sense to quote one's own posts but I felt I needed to highlight a MASSIVE omission from my list of highlights and those we needed to thank publicly.

Thank you, from the bottom of our collective heart to Mike Flavin without whom the weekend in Gettysburg would quite literally not have happened. He saved our arses within an hour of us touching down in the USA and continued to be an indispensable additional member of Team 'Fish the whole weekend. We loved every minute spent hanging out with Mike and he surprised all of us by demonstrating that he's no slouch on either the drums or the guitar. An all round lovely, lovely man who will be long remembered among the five of us (and Iain, I'm sure) as the man who introduced us to his favourite North American dining franchise - Michael Flavin - WE SALUTE YOU!

Seconded. Mike was a total star during the weekend and unofficial crew in places too. We had a real blast hanging out with you sir and your legend will loom large in our memories of the weekend.  8)

Awww.. you are too kind. But thanks!   ;)
And thanks for letting me join the team for a few days
I'm glad I was able to help out, but I think it's safe to say any of the Rosfest cast & crew would have done the same. I'm sure you'll agree now that you've met many of them, they really are an awesome bunch!
I havent had that much fun in a long, long time. We must do this again!

Oooh!  And congrats on such a succesful gig.
Sometimes life IS fair, and good people succeed   :)

The Mars Hollow were my personal fave band of the weekend (closely followed by District 97). There was something very uplifting and honest about their songs and the way they played them. Seeing Kerry bounce about the stage like a spring lamb made me girn from ear to ear. It felt like they were all really enjoying themselves.

Excellent pictures and yes thanks to the photographers!

From reviewing the pictures, I think I missed a good fish tale or three....

Not sure if this review has been featured before :

"Though I was not familiar with Tinyfish’s music, I remembered guitarist/vocalist Simon Godfrey as one of the old-time members of the progressive rock forum where I started my ‘career’, and had often seen the band mentioned there. However, even if I had never had the opportunity to check them out, their set (which, regrettably, we had to leave early due to a prior engagement) was one of the real surprises of the weekend for both of us. Simply put, Simon Godfrey is an incredible vocalist, probably the best heard over the weekend (no mean feat, since there was quite a bunch of fine singers on display), with a strong, passionate voice that adds depth and interest to the band’s classy musical output. With a sound harking back to the glory days of vintage Neo-Prog, clean and melodic yet with a nicely sharp edge – more Pink Floyd than Genesis – immaculate musicianship, a powerhouse of a drummer in Leon Camfield,  and a liberal sprinkling of that wonderful English humour, they delivered a flawless set that left the audience deeply impressed.  The narration (courtesy of lyricist Rob Ramsay) of the background story to their latest album, The Big Red Spark =  an elaborate sci-fi concept that has gained a lot of critical acclaim since its release – also injected a welcome dose of theatrics into the proceedings. Tinyfish would definitely have deserved to play a longer set, and I would love to see them again in the future."

I think I have seen that review posted here before James but it always nice to encounter such a positive commentary again.  :)

Excellent! Great find, Jim. Now we all get to see the mistakes before they get edited out.  ;D

OOH! Sitting next to that one are Weak Machine (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KnoZui5oRxU&feature=related) and The June Jar (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Mj47ihd2F8&feature=related)! Watching now!  :)

Thanks for sharing.  I really enjoyed watching these.  You got a brilliant reception at, for example, the end of Weak Machine.  I can only imagine what it was like at the end of TBRS suite.   :)

The crowd went bonkers Rob. It was amazing to get such a reception and RoSFest will forever hold a special place in our hearts for the warmth of their welcome.

That's a very interesting comment, Rob, and one I had cause to think about last night - at the end of the song The Big Red Spark there was huge applause and the band seemed quite overwhelmed at the response - it took a little while for them to get going again.  Then at the end of TBRS suite the applause was louder and the audience were on their feet.  You need to then increase that again to get an idea of the reception at the end of the set as they finished with All Hands Lost.  Powerful stuff.

I think we can get an idea of the size of that positive response to the set (such a boring way of putting it!) by the fact that there's cheering and applause when Leon kicks in for the first time during Weak Machine. I must say, along with the adapted Refugee, that was one of the biggest (and certainly most welcome) surprises on the tour.

David's copy of the CRS magazine arrived today (mine hopefully will be here tomorrow).  It has the RoSFest review by James with pictures by Bo.  Congratulation guys.  I'll look forward to reading the article.

I predict a fair number of things might have "rolled on", "thundered through" and "soared up" in the Gettysburg area.
