|With the John
Young website up and running I should have time to start updating
these pages again. I've also invested in a Psion 5mx (palmtop) which
should cut the need to decypher my handwriting and speed up reviews
making it onto the site. All I need now is about a year to write
up the last eighteen months or more of reviews and the site will
be almost up to date!
To save you wasted trips
to this page you may like to use Mind It to do the checking for
Here you will find details
of site updates, most recent at the top:
Oct 2001 - The Fish pages have had their links updated and
a short review added form 30 Oct 2000.
14 Oct 2001 -The site is almost complete on this new server.
I've added some photos to the Pallas
Rotherham review and will work on updating the look of the site
when I return from Germany next month.
24 Sep 2001 - For the second time in eight months the site
has been lost from the Crosswinds server. This time it is a mixture
of failed RAID hard drives and a dodgy UPS power supply. As the hardware
is just a couple of blocks from the now collapsed World Trade Center
I guess this is no surprise. Maybe I should sell some of my old never
played CDs to finance a proper web presence for the site. Anyway, I'll
start uploading again tonight but it may take a few days to complete
and check everything is working again (as I don't have ftp access -
only a user unfriendly Crosswinds web based version). If you spot any
missing links please email me the details. Thanks, Doug.
3 Sep 2001 - The Jump Whitchurch
review and the Whitchurch Festival
index pages have the ticket and a correction added. Some added information
from the 1999 fringe Programmeand the spelling of Ani DiFranco corrected
on the Jackie Leven Celtic Connections
radio show and index pages .
16 Aug 2001 - A new set of pages based around an interesting
Scottish performer, Jackie Leven. The
initial review is mor a transcript of a radio session that attracted
my attention to Jackie in the first place. I'm off to the Edinburgh
Fringe to catch another couple of shows so expect a review in a couple
Tue 14 Aug 2001 - A front page
for the various Whitchurch Festivals
I have been to.
Fri 10 Aug 2001 - A full review
with plenty of pictures of Jump at the Whitchurch
Festival last Sunday evening. I hope to have a few more reviews
from the weekend in a week or two.
29 Jul 2001 - Nothing new to report on the finished reviews
front so I've decided to add a set of pages listing all the shows I've
been to. A basic version of this was available a year ago but I deleted
it soon after. This time I intend adding a few notes about each (or
most) gig(s) to the list. You can see what I've done so far with 2000
here. If you would like me to continue the series let me know.
07 Jul 2001 - Another cheat. I originally submitted this
Galahad Bournemouth 2 Dec 2000 review to the CRS. It was published
in word alone but here I can add some photos (at a later date). Another
CRS submission, though not published, is John
Wetton London Borderline 9 Nov 2000.
Mon 02 Jul
2001 - A bit of a cheat this JUMP
review from Reading 3 Mar 2001. It is really just a short post about
the show that I wrote to the Jump yahoo group. I will write the review
up properly one day.
Fri 29 Jun
2001 - Finally, a new review. Greenslade
at Crewe - 7 Feb 2001. This is an expanded version with different
photos to the one on the JY site.
Tue 26 Jun 2001 - I've added a guestbook
(see above) so you can leave some feedback on my reviews.
11 Jun 2001 - I've been a little lax in updates (moving house
etc) but Tracy has saved the day and written a review for me. It is
a bit of a departure for a gig review site but so be it. A demo
review of a Reading band called MiDDleftout.
Normal service will resume soon hopefully.
23 Apr 2001 - a new gig (well, CD in some ways) review: Fish
: Haddington 3 Nov 1991.
12 Apr 2001 - at last, the final piece of the original site
is restored: John Young pages.
11 Apr 2001 - another new review: Jump
- Reading Beethovens 04 Mar 2000.
09 Apr 2001 - Finally, a new review: Jump
- Milton Keynes 24 Mar 2001.
05 Apr 2001 - A longer break between updates than I intended.
and Wolfstone pages are now
back online. I've also added the first in a set of Fish
01 Feb 2001 - The start of the new millinium and hopefully
the start of me managing to keep up with reviews of at least some of
the gigs I get to. For some reason the site was deleted earlier
this year so I've taken the opportunity to change all the pages to proportional
width rather than 770 pixels wide. They should now fit in any screen
or browser window (though some of the pictures may cause some problems
in certain browsers) without you having to scroll from side to
side. It also means that, should I decide to go down the 'frames' route
I won't have to adapt every page to fit.
02 Oct 2000 - REVIEWS ADDED:
T'pau @ Reading 9 Feb 2000,
