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!
Here you will find details of site updates, most recent at the top:

27 Feb 2002 - Not a new review but a new index page for a batch of forthcoming ones - Deep Purple - plus some pictures from my 50th DP show in Oxford.
13 Feb 2002 - The Psion is back and the first review I've extracted from it is from last year - John Young, Stourbridge 7 Jul 2001.
04 Feb 2002 - Plans for Pallas and The Urbane reviews have been delayed due to my Psion being in for repair and a lot of behind the scenes work for the JY site. However, I have a feature I wrote for the CRS magazine late last year based aroung a two week tour I handled merchandise for. The article covers the work I did plus a review of the first show of that tour, Jackie Leven - 19 Oct 2001 Bremen Lagerhaus. Have a read and remember that buying merchandise at a gig can make the difference between the band breaking even and making a profit. Many bands you would not expect actually only make money from a gig by merchandise sales.
17 Jan 2002 - A few Qango pages have now been converted to the new site style and I've taken the chance to finally add more photos to the appropriate shows (Rotherham and Liverpool).
16 Jan 2002 - I've added a front page for my Mostly Autumn review and discovered I've seen more MA gigs than I remembered. I'd better dig out some of my old notes and add another review or two sometime.
15 Jan 2002 - A proper update and a current gig despite my Psion dying. What a surprise. Mostly Autumn (Karnataka to follow in a few days) from The Mean Fiddler last Saturday.
11 Jan 2002 - Two updates in as many days. Worrying, isn't it. No need to fear, this is just a litle update I've been meaning to do for months, adding a link to MP3.com so you can hear Middleftout. Oh, and I've begun rebranding the site as you can probably see from this page. More reviews to follow soon.
9 Jan 2002 - A new year and time I added some updates to the site. I have one or two reviews almost ready to go so check back in a week or so for at least one addition.
