Title: Tinyfish - 8th July 2012 (HOP CELEBRATION FEST) It Bites, IQ.
Post by: Jim on January 29, 2012, 04:42:05 PM
It is with a sense of nervous excitement that we would like to announce that we will be supporting It Bites at Twang's extraordinary event on July 8th for The House Of Progression's Celebration Fest, a two day prog rock festival at The Hippodrome in Kingston.

More details to follow as soon as we get them but hooray, we're sure you agree!

I really enjoyed The Tangent at Summer's End last year. The youngsters really lifted the show.


Title: Re: OMG! Tinyfish in second 2012 live appearance shocker!
Post by: A James on January 29, 2012, 10:05:07 PM
Yes, The Tangent get better every time I see them at the moment.

(Not Yes, to clarify)


Title: Re: OMG! Tinyfish in second 2012 live appearance shocker!
Post by: Mouse on January 29, 2012, 10:10:15 PM
I fully intend to be there for both days. I've really been keen on The Tangent of late and IQ doing all of Subterranea would certainly be something to see. I loved The Narrow Margin when they finished the main set with it at the BOTYs (snigger) in 2010. And now Sean Filkins, too. I'll be very interested to see how he brings his work into a live setting. Could be a chance for one or two Big Big Train numbers too, maybe?

Sunday just looks unmissable! Et tu, Pedders!  ;)

The last time I saw It Bites was in 1989 or something like that so I am interested in seeing them.  As usual 'meh' at IQ.  I hope there will be day tickets too.

I think we have tickets to see Tim Minchin in the purple cow on the South Bank on the Saturday, so no IQ for me, but if we're in London anyway, we might be able to make the Sunday.

Post by: Uncle Bulgaria on February 27, 2012, 03:31:29 PM
I'm worried about missing Mars Hollow on the Sunday - we have to be at the South Bank by about 8.30 to get anywhere like decent seats for Tim Minchin (as it's general admission in the purple cow)

But at least it's likely that I'll get to see Tinyfish AND Magenta.

We might go for an early tea/late lunch while The Tangent are on, so I'll meet the rest of you coming out while I come back in to watch Pallas  :P


Title: Re: Tinyfish - 8th July 2012 (HOP CELEBRATION FEST) It Bites, IQ.
Post by: Simon on February 27, 2012, 03:42:15 PM
It would be a shame to miss Mars Hollow as I really liked them at RoSFest and think they'll give the crowd a good show but I totally understand you having to bugger off in time to catch Mr Minchin. Very happy to hear that you are both making the effort to catch us and Magenta however.


Title: Re: Tinyfish - 8th July 2012 (HOP CELEBRATION FEST) It Bites, IQ.
Post by: RobH on February 27, 2012, 04:53:18 PM
It would be brave to put Mars Hollow on after Magenta.  I've seen the line up both ways.

Just to give you all something to natter about, we have now made tickets for the 2 headline sets (IQ and It Bites) available at 25.00 as many people can't make the whole day. This is along the same lines as RoSfest

"In what may be the dumbest enforcement of a curfew in rock and roll history, organizers of a Tinyfish concert in London literally pulled the plug on the show during an encore featuring special guest Twitch.

"I gotta tell you, I've been trying to do this for 50 years," Simon Godfrey told the crowd of 7 while introducing Twitch. The pair - backed by the Tiny Fish Band and The Fierce And The Dead guitarist Matt Stevens - launched into Genesis' "Supper's Ready"  But Godfrey had already exceeded the half-an-hour time limit set by London's Westminster Council for the Hyde Park Corner concert, according to the BBC. The sound was cut off at approximately 10:40 a.m. local time as Godfrey and Twitch performed "Grendel"  "It made for a slightly bizarre, anti-climactic extension to what had been a below average show," the BBC said. "The band obviously couldn't tell from on stage that the sound had been shut off."

During the band's second song with Twitch, "a drably dressed Bert with sensible hair could be seen waving frantically at the back of the stage, indicating the Progressive rock legends' time was drawing to a close," CNN reported. "The sound suddenly dampened, and went off. At first, the God didn't seem to notice. He attempted to address the crowd, apparently unaware that they could not hear him. But as it became clear that there was no amplification, he and lead guitarist Jimmy Van Zanders played what looked to be a brief a cappella goodnight for the benefit of the front rows, shrugged, and left the stage."

After the show, Van Zanders slammed the decision.  "Seriously, when did England become a police state?" Van Zandt wrote on Twitter. "Is there just too much fun in the world? We would have been off by 11 if we'd done one more. On a Sunday morning! Who were we disturbing? This would never happen in Sweden"  The guitarist and former "TEP" co-star added: "I'm sorry but I have to be honest: I'm pissed. Like I said, it didn't ruin the great night. But when I'm jamming with Twitch, don't bug me!"

Concertgoers agreed, to put it mildly.  "Godfrey and Twitch," James Hendry, a reporter for his own blog, tweeted. "Only in Britain could a local council pull the plug on the greatest artists of the last 50 years giving it all."

"Ashamed to be British right now," Leon Camfield, an actor and comedian, wrote. "In fact, I am Italian"

On Monday, the city council and concert organizers released separate statements, scrambling to deflect criticism.  "Concert organizers, not the council, ended yesterday's concert in Hyde Park Corner to comply with their license, which [allowed] them to run the concert until 10:30 a.m.," the city council said in a statement on Monday. "Licenses are granted until certain times to protect residents in the area from noise late in the morning. It was unfortunate that the half-an-hour plus performance by Simon Godfrey was stopped right at the very end but the curfew is laid down by the authorities in the interest of the public's health and safety," the organizers said. "Road closures around Hard Park (sic) are put in place at specific times to make sure everyone can exit the area in a safety (sic)."

"It sounds to me like an excessively efficacious decision," London mayor Boris Johnson told a London radio station Monday. "You won't get that during the Olympics. If they'd have called me, my answer would have been for them to jam in the name of Prog!""

You've probably got no idea what you just did, either.
