Unfortunately I will be unable to attend the show at Dingwalls on Thursday 21st (hospital appointment), so that means my ticket is now looking for a new home.
Ill sell it for Face value (Â£12.50). Just be glad that someone will have the opportunity to attend in my place as I believe it’s already sold out.
If your interested just send me a private message.

hey sludgefeast, that’s a bummer … will you be able to go to the mean fiddler show ?November 20, 2002 at 6:48 am #63234
rambleon – I would love to go, but I’ve got a Family dinner thing I’m supposed to be attending. As i was the last one to find out about it, I had already ordered my ticket for the Mean Fiddler – double bummer.
I’m relying on these boards for full reviews of the shows !November 20, 2002 at 6:41 pm #63235
hey sludgefeast … were you the guy w/dark hair sitting on the stage at the metro club in sept ??November 21, 2002 at 8:55 am #63236
Rambleon – why ? Do I owe you money !!
No – not guilty. I was there, but standing in the front row.November 21, 2002 at 10:32 am #63237
Ouch x 2
That’s’ gotta hurt, guess the credit card for the whole family would be a bit much as a bribe to miss that family dinner
Hope we get some cool reviews for you…

My credit card has yet to recover from the Brighton show last year, so no funds for a second bribe im fraid
Looking forward to some reviews though …….November 22, 2002 at 2:29 am #63239
no !! you don’t owe my any money … i was just wondering … we were in the front row too right next to the girl w/long red hair (she was there last night too)
and i know what you mean about brighton … we went last year and it was like Â£85 for a hotel room, plus we had to pay for the bus to get down there and back and the tix and food money … it all adds up !
we really wanted to go again to the brighton show (tonight!!), but we have enough on our credit card already (had to pay for an operation privately b/c the nhs would have taken too long !!! … )
anyhow … we’re looking forward to seeing the stooges tribute thing in a few weeks’ time… and j did say last night, just as he was leaving the stage that he hopes we can all make it thereNovember 22, 2002 at 4:15 am #63240
poxy new board. just typed review of last night, and it disappeared because i wasn’t logged in.

same set as nottingham exactly.
bulletproof jacket on. about 350 people

may die.November 23, 2002 at 12:21 pm #63241
grrreat show! j seemed to be more into it than he was in liverpool. hey that was me at the metro w/red hair. its pretty funny cause at the london gigs i always see exactly the same ppl in exactly the same places..November 23, 2002 at 12:41 pm #63242
hey Javro & Infinate spark, great that you managed to see more than one show
thanks for the brief reviews
seems, London isn’t as big as I thought?November 24, 2002 at 8:02 am #63243
yeh,its pretty weird.but not that weird considering most ppl on here are die hard fans,and a lot of freaksceners r around london. the liverpool show was cool,but there werent many ppl there and quite a few of them continued to talk throughout both sets.wankers.but the guys at the back who shouted the !!"NO"!! parts in just like heaven were great. we spoke to chris brokaw after the show again and bought CDs (we met him at the train station,and neither of us knew where the venue was so we shared a cab.hes a v.nice guy) i also got a jmascis pick! so,im a happy bunnyNovember 24, 2002 at 9:20 am #63244
hey infinate spark, thanks for the additional remarks
I definitely like to read everything about J’s shows and I’m really looking forward to the gig in Hamburg in DecemberNovember 25, 2002 at 4:04 pm #63245
maybe i should have edited this a bit more b/c it seems a bit lengthy, but this is my review of the dingwalls show
my husband and i got there just before 7 … we had stormed over there from our house via 2 buses and some v.fast walking … we were hoping to get there before the doors opened to get a good spot right nr the stage, so we were in a serious rush… but when we got there we found out the doors werenâ€™t scheduled to open until 7.30 (even though the tix said 7), so the security guys (one of whom seemed v.v.stoned !) suggested we all wait in the bar upstairs
i was 1/2 expecting to see j sitting up there, but he wasnâ€™t — or at least i didnâ€™t see him
they finally let us in at about 7.45 … thankfully the security was pretty lax about letting in cameras and also they let us sit on the stage too …
chris brokaw was 1st up at 8.30 … i really liked his instrumental songs and later i read that heâ€™s just brought out an album w/all instrumental music … it didnâ€™t seem like there were that many people paying attention to him except the crowd right up front – and there was a lot of talking background noise … i felt sorry for him b/c it must have been v.distracting, but he did a great job and he thanked people for listening (maybe a sublte dig at those who werenâ€™t?) …
j came on at 9.30 or so and started w/someone said + he was off – charging through the songs with little or no time between them … not to say that he didnâ€™t play them w/feeling, but more like he was an unstoppable one-man hit factory. this was the 1st time he didnâ€™t have a set list (that iâ€™ve ever seen), but like infinate spark pointed out it was the same set as the liverpool show … so i guess he knew it by heart already …
near to the end of the show he asked for a request … kind of … well he said something like, â€œwhat should i play nextâ€November 25, 2002 at 4:53 pm #63246
hey rambleon, thank you very much for sharing your experience and thank you especially for all those colorful details
I hope he’ll finally get your present at the next gig, then
