So why do all of the members of the Frames except the drummer get to tour as part of the Swell Season? Is it by choice or is that guy getting the shaft?

the van morrison covers were fucking epic. more than made up for the predominantly middle-aged ambience.

This was such powerful and fun show - the songs, the stories and just how happy they all were to be there and playing together.
I loved the stories between the songs and the optimism and look forward to more delicious music from all of these musicians.

Any tapers? email me :)

Some recordings here - including the Astral Weeks cover which was unreal.

The pix of Fergus O'F and Glen H singing GOLD are a couple of the best photos of friends I have ever seen. Thanks so much.
