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.  Smiley

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

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.   Smiley

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.

The live Weak Machine is a thing of awesome power and beauty.
