  1. Was your lad nicked or just briefly detained and released?
  2. We where going back to hotel when verbals and a bit of shoving started. As I turned around before going into the hotel I saw someone get in front of the bloke with the hat on then the ob moved in as I was going in hotel. The lad with black SI was PV.
  3. Forgot I had these at work! Only used once in 12 months.
  4. You need a directional microphone, not sure if you can get this with buds etc. No doubt there will be AI/software that could do this. As for noise cancelling in your ears, I've used Shure Se205's (in ear) for years and Sony MX4 (overear), both are excellent on planes ๐Ÿ˜

    A few early stuff in the set in Leeds and the following gigs. Couple of early ones in the sound check and pre sound check ๐Ÿ™„ Met Jim and Charlie, really nice blokes. Amsterdam in two weeks... Space ๐Ÿฐ's ๐Ÿ˜—
  6. Glad you enjoyed it pal. I had a chat with Russ on Colls yesterday, he got in at 3.30am and was in the doghouse ๐Ÿ˜ Would have been there but was at a concert in Leeds we booked last Sept. Need more than six weeks notice!

    Definitely, I've got loads of early bootlegs, suprising how many gigs were recorded by audiences or on the sound board. I was in Valencia in January for the Simple Minds Spanish meet up. Original base player Derek Forbes was there for a Q&A. Top bloke and spent a bit of time chatting with him about his time in SM, 78 to 85. Some of the stuff ๐Ÿ™„

    I used https://www.bluecarrental.is/ I booked a nissan qashqai 4 wheel drive, when I got there they apologised that they didn't the car and said did I mind if they gave me a Toyota Landcrusier! Keep off F roads. Watch out for old bill and speed cameras. I stuck to the speed limit but locals where flying past me. I stuck my dashcam on and have saved the files, unbelievable landscape esp on the coast past Vik. It was 2015 and I had a 4G signal everywhere, playing at it over here.

    Forget Blue Lagoon, we went to the secret lagoon, which isn't very secret. As mentioned above, new spa open in Reykavik called Sky Lagoon. Gulfoss, geysers, Seljalandsfoss & Skรณgafoss waterfalls and the beach at Vik. I also used the Appy Hour app, in 2015 it was ยฃ6 pint, recently in Tromso I was paying ยฃ8 which wasn't bad considering its ยฃ5.75 for Madri at TS. Plus I had 50 real ale beers and 8 pilsners to choose from. Don't forget to buy your duty free when you enter Iceland, there is a shop and you get points you can https://www.dutyfree.is/en Supermarkets can only sell 2% beer. They have govenment offies. https://www.vinbudin.is/english/home/opnunartimar Watch out for opening times. We did a ยฃ900 in seven days. Petrol, food, drinks and entrance ro Serect Lagoon.
  12. Be cheaper to rebuild. Back at Burnden? ๐Ÿ™‚
