Patricia Morrison did her job and did it well. Her job was not playing bass, it was baby-sitting Von on promo tours to make sure he didn't end up on the old you-know-what again.

When they used to go on at Robert Fripp to get back together the original lineup of King Crimson (when Greg Lake was still alive), his response was: I would if I thought they could still play the material as well as the new band, but I don't. This would be my response to any idea of Hussbag rejoinin...

Kind of funny about how one of those reviews was disappointed that the big anthems weren't extended a bit longer. I'm reminded of Von saying (maybe on the website?) that the good Doktor isn't good at adding another verse or chorus on the fly or settling into an extended jam. (Although maybe given mo...

The instrumental was definitely played, as was Flood II. Von definitely stared at the lighting guy and mouthed WHAT THE f**k on a few occasions. But he was into it. He was doing all these "evil Thunderbird puppet moves" that really showed his frontman skills are more valuable than his voice. Speakin...

I was sure I saw Eldritch driving a car down my road yesterday (yes, I live quite near tomorrow's venue) but all those bald men wearing sunglasses look alike

I think that if we were ever going to get official recordings of the Pearson-era songs we'd have had them by now.
Er, we did get an official recording of one of the Pearson-era songs (although not a Pearson song).

So Chris is moving to a "twelfth-man" position because Von wants to... play too many gigs?

I don't see why Von's voice deteriorating would be a problem. Leonard Cohen, his hero, had a voice which degenerated from slightly nasal to a barely audible grumble over his career, and that was all part of his charm.

Would be much more surprising if they would NOT play the cities mentioned above, but where does that quote come from? https://www.facebook.com/events/845798059093784/ Their performance should be more or less the same level compared to 2012, unless something significant has happened since 2017.

ADELAIDE, PERTH and AUCKLAND - Due to demand we will be announcing shows in your city next week! Before I get all excited, I haven't been following closely since Eldritch wimped out on his promise to do a new album if Trump got elected. How do their recent performances compare to when I saw them in...

I was sad to hear this morning of the death of former Dance Exponents and Starlings guitarist Chris Sheehan, who had been living with cancer for several years. I used to see quite a lot of Chris back in the day and he was a lovely man – and, of course, quite a guitar player.
