for anyone who might wonder what my set is going to sound like, here's a three minute snippet of one of the rehearsals I've recorded


.... and, yes, I'm particularly proud that I learned how to embed the soundcloud player...  :)
Beautiful piece,  8)

I "listened" to this today....



and by "listened" I mean I whipped out my guitar and tried to play along after not playing these songs for 10-ish years and trying to remember what part comes next....

I should really get back to the stack of ambient CD's piling up on my kitchen table that I bought months ago and then didn't listen to...

IMHO it is their best ever album, raw and powerful, nothing else they've done has ever come close to it.

Saturnus latest, Saturn in Ascension, is superb, although imo they could have left off the final track, but highly recommended all the same :)

Ah, had it been a UK artist then I could have seen about getting it for you and shipping it across, which may have worked out cheaper.

Iron Maiden-Live After Death.  I would say if you could only have one IM album in your collection, this should be it.  Recorded 1985 at the peak of their game. 

I'm showing my age here a bit, but I saw the Maiden on their first tour with Paul Di'Anno at Middlesbrough Town Hall. I liked their stuff very much then but I think they haven't really changed musically from their early days.
Incidentally, I also saw a band called 'White Spirit' at the same venue (well, in the Crypt) with Janick Gers, before he joined Iron Maiden. My last blast from the past was seeing an AC/DC soundalike band with a Mr Brian Johnstone as singer - before he joined AC/DC.

Jolly days...

I saw Iron Maiden at The Rock Garden in Middlesbrough, again it was with Paul Di'Anno on vocals, they where pretty average in my opinion, could never understand why they got so big. My friend took over the lead guitar role in White Spirit, Jannick Gers left to join the Ian Gillan Band, before he eventually joined Iron Maiden. But yes those were the days 8)

Congratulations on your one hundredth podcast John, an outstanding achievement. Here's to the next 100 :)

I sent a parcel of 3CDs, 2 in standard jewel cases and one digipak,  from the UK to the States, by airmail, the other day, it cost 6.76 = around $10.60, parcel weight came out at 0.325kg, so it is less to send 3 discs from the UK to the States than it is to send one disc from the States to the UK, pretty shocking, so while Royal Mail have steadily increased their prices year upon year, it is still not as bad as your increases, which seem to be extortionate to say the least. What you need to do is find a distibutor in the UK, then find some way of getting your discs to them cheaply, so they can then ship them back to your fans in the states, one disc is around 3.70 = around $5.80 to the States from here. Pretty ironic really!

phobos: Yes, budget permitting we are planning to videotape all the concerts and presentations and post them on YouTube.
That would be cool, I'll keep my fingers crossed for you 8)

Sounds like a great event, hope it is a success for everyone concerned.
Hopefully there will be some live footage posted on Youtube for those of us over the pond?

Just purchased last night:

BLOOD BOX-Funeral in an Empty Room.  This is on the Power & Steel sublabel of Loki Foundation, Germany.  This is a SUPERB celestial darkambient release.  Don't let the cliched typical dark ambient title put you off;  highly recommend this one to all!

That is a superb album, and if you can find a copy of it, I would highly recommend his The Iron Dream also.
