By the way, who is Jan Paul Menel - facebook believes that he should be a friend.
It's Paul Menel, Rob - Jan is the month Wink

He was the singer with IQ for a bit after Pete Nicholls left in the later eighties. Made two or three albums with them - he has a more poppy approach than Pete.

Those two IQ albums (Nomzamo and Are You Sitting Comfortably) are the only two I like and have. Yes, much poppier but far more tuneful to my ear.

I am with Jim on this - Nomzamo is the only IQ album I have. Just don't look at their hair on the inside cover.

I threw their hair away the moment I got the album home.

Nomzamo was the album I first discovered IQ with, and while I prefer later 'proggier' IQ, I still have a soft spot for the album.

If there is even half a chance that PLM will sing No Love Lost I will be there.

I always found Are You Sitting Comfortably went too far (for me) down the poppier route. It is my least favourite IQ album .

I only owned Nomzamo and Are you sitting comfortably?

Dame LOVES those two albums so he will probably go to this show.

Along with Once Around The world by It Bites, Are You Sitting Comfortably was THE album that Freefall was listening to back when were were taking our first steps as prog musicians.

I remember all of us just melting at the really cool 'When will dreamtime come?' chord progression in the middle of Drive On.

Hurrah - finally got my Defence of the Realm tickets along with Tinyfish 2011 and Pallas.

Probably going to the Paul Menel one as well, just have to play Mme Cholet Nomzamo to discover if she will be accompanying me.

Dame wants a Paul Menel ticket.  Thought he would.  He then played me his new single.  Jury is out on that one.  It wasn't unpleasant but couldn't decide if it sounded dated or not.  Certainly sounded like good IQ.  Certainly wasn't prog rock.  Or rock.

Was it good music? That's all I take into account.

Now, I'm thinking......what's on my wish list for 2011 that I haven't got booked yet. Well. Crippled Black Pheonix is one, Haken want a show too, Hookah the Fuzz are amazing. Porcupine Tree/Blackfield, yes I'm dreaming. Rush dreaming again, Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett, Mike Rutherford, Tony Banks, Ant & Chester Thompson. Phil's retired even my dreams have a spark of realism. Fish and the Marillion boys do perform well, anything they want to. David Gilmour,Roger Waters and a warm up for DT to break in a new drummer. I can dream, yes I can dream. Oh and Tinyfish to perform a full electric Tinyfish version of ELO's Concerto for a Rainy Day. Grin

Blackfield may not be an outlandish thought...

Crippled Black Phoenix would be excellent.

I notice Tinyfish will take the stage before a nation celebrating "the Wedding of Mass Distraction." Any chance of a royalty themed gig at the Peel? I won't say which band member ought to play the lovely Kate, or who has the ears for the Father -in- law.

Any chance of Big Big Train? Quidam (obviously not)?
