Enjoy Dead South mate :tup:
They were very good mate, 8.5/10, they lost points for too long a break between songs, stifled the atmosphere somewhat.

The venue, 3/10, would have to be someone I desperately wanted to see before I'd go there again

full line up ? I heard the Cello player took a sabbatical and the banjo player was replaced for a while by a bluegrass legend (she'd have been female) last year

Eliza Mary Doyle is now the Banjo player in the band, the former one quit through illness, the cello player was there, in fact on our way home this morning we were saying how beautifully he played it.

TBH, it's normally the type of venue I like to see bands, small intimate with a bar, basically a big old pub. This one had a good sound, hence the 3 points, but they ran out of draught beer when we arrived, the Guinness was dire, the room was extremely narrow, a low stage so you could only just see the heads of the group and the toilets were up by the stage in a room that was too narrow already, which meant a lot of people toing and froing past one another.

Another positive was the second support, we caught the last number of the first support, sounded like a Levellers cover but the second support were a local band who must have been together years, the vocalist was excellent, she had a Grace Slick, Elin Larsson feel to her voice. The Brandy Thieves very good they were.

Loved those type of pub venues following Wally & Be-Bop Deluxe in their early days during the 70's

Caught these guys while on holiday recently, Mrs NW even got herself a signed cd afterwards! - the classical vocals were beautiful....I can take or leave the Coldplay bit but it did work.....

Glad you like it mate. Lady’s vocals were just as impressive live, beautiful.

Indeed, the sort of performance that just draws you in and makes you listen, full of emotion and subtlety.

A Floyd day with eight albums of their 13 I own on my playlist

MY TOP FIVE (can change as the years roll on)

Meddle
Atom Heart Mother
The Dark Side of the Moon
Wish You Were Here
Obscured by Clouds

Animals
Relics
The Piper at the Gates of Dawn

No idea what my favourite Floyd song is, far too many great classics, can change from day to day

Floyd facts

Atom Heart Mother was Floyd's first No.1 album

Dark Side Of The Moon never made the UK No.1 spot even though the album is one of the best selling albums of all-time.

Dark Side Of The Moon was the first No.1 album for Floyd in the USA after their first seven albums failed to make the Top 40 where as all their albums prior to DSOTM made the Top 10 in the UK

The Division Bell reach No.1 in every country that produces charts

The Division Bell was my BEST SELLING ALBUM when I owned a music shop :-D

Another Brick In The Wall (Part II) was Floyd's only No.1 single in the UK in 1979 twelve years after the Top 20 hit singles 'Arnold Layne' & 'See Emily Play' in 1967

By 2013 Pink Floyd had sold 250 million records world wide

64 - a tricky one, given their stellar back catalogue, but I would go:

1. Wish you Were Here
2. Dark Side of the Moon
3. Animals
4. The Wall
5. The Division Bell

(I would confess to not really being a fan of their early offerings - some of it was just a bit too out there for me)

Favourite Floyd song - Shine on you Crazy Diamond (Parts I-V)

I am in the process of downloading them all again...

My 1tb external hard drive that I use for backup, was knocked off the table by my dog, and now does not want to play... My whole music collection, and all my hypnotherapy scripts, audio recordings, adn background music, my photo's from the last 10 years, and Tv programs and films... all gone.

before it packed up completely I was lucky enough to rescue my accounts and books for my business.

I like all the early Floyd, but Division bell gets the most play time in my house.... (at the moment).

Wish You Were Here was in my top two, could change tomorrow. I played WYWH to death when it was first released in 1975

I'm surprised no one has nominated Shine On You Crazy Diamond in the Mega Song Poll
