Looking forward to hearing more Armoires as they have a new album coming out soon. Sad about Roky

6:17 PM, June 1st, 2019
Wally
Did you see Peter Perrett has a new album out and The Waterboys also have a new one

6:25 PM, June 1st, 2019
Dave JC.
Not quite the weather to go with this one. Hope you had a good afternoon

6:31 PM, June 1st, 2019

A great evening to enjoy the show

6:36 PM, June 1st, 2019
Steve Kirkland (host)
Hey Wally... ditto... there was a video of a track from the new Perett LP in the Domino newsletter

Welcome Mr JC... bit of a boring afternoon really, spent watching the less than spectacular CLF spectacle

6:44 PM, June 1st, 2019
IanJ
Just tuned in. Say Wally's comment on Roky and had to google. Sad, left some amazing music in his wake.

Steve Kirkland (host)
Hi Ian. Indeed... good if somewhat inopportune to revisit some of it

6:50 PM, June 1st, 2019

Hi Shubham

Exactly what I thought, I went with the 13" Laptop to PC's place as the usual venue was full. BTW: loved the Espers' track.. Again, they're new to me! Really reminiscent of certain bands of the late 60s.

6:54 PM, June 1st, 2019
Dave JC.
Also the No Joy track too.

6:55 PM, June 1st, 2019

New to you is always good, D

Great to hear ELO! My first concert.

Where does Professor Mike live

7:00 PM, June 1st, 2019
Wally
I didn't know that Espers did a Durutti Column cover, somehow I missed that. It's rare to hear a DC cover.

7:05 PM, June 1st, 2019
Steve Kirkland (host)
Ian - was it the tour with the spaceship stage?

7:06 PM, June 1st, 2019
Steve Kirkland (host)
True enough, Wally

7:07 PM, June 1st, 2019
Wally
On one of the new Mike Scott songs, he mentions Nikki Sudden which I thought was pretty cool. https://youtu.be/6PqUBPr74os

7:08 PM, June 1st, 2019
Steve Kirkland (host)
I'll check that out Wally, thanks

7:14 PM, June 1st, 2019
IanJ
Yes, it was that tour. CNE grounds . 78?

7:20 PM, June 1st, 2019
Steve Kirkland (host)
Same one I saw... felt disappointed, all the stage did was rise up and down and flash, nothing earth-shaking

7:30 PM, June 1st, 2019
IanJ
I couldn't see anything, Steve. Seats so far away from the stage, may as well been sitting in Ontario Place!

7:45 PM, June 1st, 2019
MikeP
