I hope you’ve seen the latest photos from Gdańsk over in the Galleries. There are some great ones, including the one above, so do have a butcher’s.

    Good day FEd,

    Hope you did not sing yourself too hoarse and hope you had a nice weekend regardless. After all, life is too short to be sad.

    Jan says: [Julie, your post made me feel (almost) like I was there.(darn) Thank you again for taking the time to be so thorough in your post.]

    I have tried to describe the event as best that I could in order to help people envisage it in their mind’s eye. It was so good, I just had to share it with everyone here. I am so glad that it made you feel like you were there. I also had to make a record of the sessions as I am so busy nowadays, I don’t get time to reflect on anything so I guess you can liken it to a diary entry.

    By the way FEd, I have decided not to submit my report to any other website. It rightfully belongs here only.

    If I get a chance I will have a bash at the chatroom sometime this week.

    Best regards.
    Julie

    Surely, you’re right, maybe you could even change ‘minute’ into ‘second’, no problem, would you like to live with a too constant and boring wife ?

    Anyway, ladies will always have the last word, since “l’Homme propose et la Femme dispose” (from Alphonse Allais, écrivain et humouriste français )

    hmmm… ‘proposer’ = to suggest
    ‘disposer’ = to decide

    Don’t you agree ?

    I am chomping at the bit on this one Fed, but I will pass in perfect lady like fashion. (NOT)

    It is no secret that men love women, so no matter what you say or think about us you love us. That’s why we are so difficult and hard to please……because we got the goods.

    Boy I really sound like a “b” with an itch. I’m really not.

    Just for fun.

    I went to pick up the new re-releases of David’s 1st two solo cd’s(which they still haven’t received)and they were playing a song from John Martyn cd. While it was playing, I noticed the guitar solo sound like David Gilmour. So I looked at the cd and sure enough it’s David playing the solo(It was great) and it turns out he plays almost on the whole cd. I was wondering if you could help me find other cd’s where David is playing on most of the album.

    Thank you,
    Thomas

    Happy Wednesday,

    By the way, for those who have not yet got David’s solo re-releases I saw them for £6.99 each in ‘Borders’. Not sure how the price compares.

    Happy Wednesday,

    I will not argue with you there. I almost believe in some forms of forced birth control. Touchy subject. But just look at some of the people we coexist with.

    Well Fed, I went out and picked up Paul’s Run Devil Run and The Dream Academy’s A Different Kind of Weather. But while I was talking with the mate who sold the cd’s, He was saying that Davids brother was in the group. Maybe so,But I have to say that the music is good.

    Thanks FEd,
    Thomas

    PS. I hope things get a little Bit better with the Blog, Because I can really tell that your at wits end and really upset and I really don’t blame you. You have rules and if we don’t listen to you after you have already warn us again. I wouldn’t blame you if you shut down the Chat Room.

    Well I better go, But if you can think of any other albums that David had played on. (Even if he only plays the Triangle on it):} Maybe you can let me know on the chat line, If you have time.

    [David’s brother, Mark, was in a band called The Act with Nick Laird-Clowes before Nick formed Dream Academy. I don’t think Mark was ever in Dream Academy, though. Glad you like them. If you can get Liona Boyd’s ‘Persona’ – assuming that you like instrumentals – then that’s worth tracking down. David plays guitars on the title track and two others (‘L’Enfant’ and ‘Sorceress’). Although I don’t think David plays on it, he produced parts of Kate Bush’s debut, ‘The Kick Inside’, which is another great album… – Features Editor]
