Title: Simon and Robert at the Peel - 24th August
Post by: Robert on August 18, 2013, 09:21:46 AM
Suddenly realised that this wasn't up here!

We are second on at about 6:15...

Doors open 3:30, Haze around 4:30, us at 6:15, then Primitive Instinct, and finally Mr So & So. :-)

I'm tempted to say, oh goody, I can leave early, but I'll stay for at least some of Mr So & So.

Who is Primitive Instinct, by the way? Are they a curry band? ;)

They are the curry band out of that lineup, although I would like to see them as well.

As I recall, they fit into the neo-prog line of things.

I picked up some Shineback merch for you guys from Nellie yesterday.  She tells me that you're going to try to sell some stuff when Simon's playing.  That might work.

Rob - you want a lift?

Thank you Rob, you're a hero :)

I was going to collect it when I was in Gloucester during the week, but events conspired against me.

No problem, I didn't have to go out of my way.

I think we'll have a better chance if we try to sell it all before 6.15.

I can make my way there, save you having to hang about for ages, but I would appreciate a lift back afterwards - I really like Mr. So & So :-) Thanks a bunch!

Sad I can't be there. Need to be fresh for Hobble on the Cobbles the next day and a gig in Gamlingay on Monday too.

Hope you have a good one guys.

Hope someone films it ;)

Is there no Simon and Robert?  No Phil?  Am considering not going if the fb post is correct.

Simon's post on FB for those that haven't seen it

Quote
This is not the kind of post I enjoy writing but due to personal circumstances which it seems I cannot avoid, I will not be able to play at The Peel tomorrow (Saturday the 24th).

Arse!

The good news is that Matt Stevens has very kindly offered to step into the breach so HUGE thanks to Matt for being such a gent and doing this at short notice.

A big thank you also goes out to Peel promoter Jon Patrick who I called this morning as was incredibly understanding of my situation. Cheers mate.

Believed me, I would have loved to have played for you all but I have been well and truly hung out to dry by stuff that I have little control over. Life appears dead set on rogering me up the bum with a particularly large pineapple it would seem.

All apologies but rest assured, the show is going to be a corker regardless of my being there or not.

Have a drink and a giggle for me.  :)

Rob - do you want a lift now that things are different?

Also, could someone let me know what to do with the merch box?


Title: Re: Simon and Robert at the Peel - 24th August
Post by: A James on August 23, 2013, 12:36:23 PM
Please still bring the merch, Rob, and we'll still try to shift it...

Yes I would love a lift - what time do you want me at Wokingham?

Between 3:45 and 4:00 would be good.

I pity the pineapple.

Oh, and can someone slap him for not updating the forum for his own band. Gently, but with a kipper.



Title: Re: Simon and Robert at the Peel - 24th August

He asked me to do it, because it is also my band :P

However Mike was super speedy :-)

Improvised curry afterwards?

Well, Matt was genius- Mahavishnu cover and weird-out noisefest ending included...

And Mr So & So were joyous, as ever. Great fun to watch and so talented.

I managed one and a half songs of Haze, and replaced Primitive Instinct with the world's largest "pizza wrap".

All in all, a fantastic day!

I enjoyed yesterday at the Peel. The trip to Kingston had been gridlocked at times and I was glad I made an early start, although the traffic made a mockery of the idea of going CD buying before the gig.
Haze were very good. I know some people don't like them, but they've always been slightly different, and the new material works well. The young drummer was a bit basic at times, and it was odd not to see Paul C's heads-down-see-you-at-the-end manner at the back, although I don't think that waould have worked to well with the shared drumkit. My only problem with Haze is their inability to build a set-list - good songs but there is no build-up towarsd the end,
Matt was Matt, with extra God-of-music taking over. I'm not sure what he was doing. Matt's not sure what he was doing. But it was very interesting, and very compelling. He looked completely stunned for ages after, although his talk of the top of his head opening and things coming out was quite odd if perfectly understandable.
How long were Primitive Instinct on for? They played well, the songs were competent, they seemed pleasant, they said nice things, and they seemed to be on stage for hours without actually making any impression at all. People left for complete meals and the band were still playing when they returned. I shall have to listen to the last album again, because it can't be as one-paced as the set.
By now I was beginning to suffer, and I'd already decided to give Mr So & So a few songs before leaving. I've listened to the albums a couple of times, but I'm not too familiar with the songs, and the live delivery tends to leave me cold, although it was good to see the femaile vocalist obviously enjoying herself and dancing around at every opportunity. I actually stayed for four songs. Next time I'll give tha albums a better listen before the gig.
I goit home about quarter past midnight - no traffic jams. Good end to a pleasant day.

1 tshirt to Cliff Progzilla, 1 cd to Roger (not that Roger), and Stacy (not that Stacy) wanted a cd but he disappeared.

The selling area was fully occupied by Primitive Instinct and Mr So & So.  And I only saw Mr Cyclops (without any merch) at the end of the gig.

I have been going to the Peel for about 7 years now, and yesterday was a first.  It was the first time that anyone has been introduced on stage.   ;D
