1) Can't afford it Sad
2) We've already committed to be somewhere else that weekend (a meeting in Beverley - that is as long as we can find somewhere reasonable to stay as we haven't booked anywhere yet! Shocked )

We have, however, tried to persuade an old school pal of John's who now lives somewhere between Edinburgh and Glasgow that he really should go along to the Glasgow gig....

At least we've got the Talking Heads to look forward to on the 28th! cheers

Frankly, I'm not quite sure why they've chosen to play Inverness again. I'm not sure that there's any great fanbase up there and last time the attendance, while respectable, wasn't great, and quite a lot of those had gone to see Donald and the Isles.

Can't do it this time. It's a little bit too far away from home to make it every year... No

I'm going and am damned excited about it!!! cheers

Also got a wee bit of good news today, for a change, so Glasgow is looking pretty damned good too!!! cheers

Was going to try for the Talking Heads gig, but the money just won't stretch that far and we have got a final home game at Victoria Park that afternoon, so my weekend won't be entirely disappointing!!

What can I say??? It was awesome and I thought the band were sounding fantastic.

And I met Kenny from Oban, who doesn't like me as I used to be a copper!!! Laughing Laughing Laughing

Once again the meeting of like minded folks was a big part of the night and much drink was drunk... the laughs, the blethers and the friendliness of the band were major highlights.. It was a superb night and once again, Coast rocked Inverness.

Thanks for making the long journey north guys, we really do appreciate it. I love you

Hiya Linda,I was only pulling your leg,or was it your arm (the long arm of the law!!) either way it was good to meet you.
Re the gig a mixed review from me, Personally I dont think all the new arrangements "worked",especially "Ruabhal "and "Big blue sky" which i think lost too mutch of the melody in favour of the heavier rock approach (some times less is more!) however "Docks" and especially "Turning stone" benifited from the big rock sound.Highlights for me, the afore mentioned "Turning stone",Steves accoustic slot and the powerhouse drumming of Andrej (The ghost of John Bonham).I sense a slight change of direction within the band and wait with anticipation for any new material, THANKS FOR A GREAT NIGHT AND BRINGING COAST BACK TO SCOTLAND.
P.S. I thought Slanj (basically Manran with Ian on drums) proved a great support band star of the show being Garry (Clash of the ash) Innies who I hoped would have guested on accordion for "The beat of you" (perhaps next time).Thanks every one for a great night.

When I saw the guys last, it was in Strathpeffer last August and the performance was beautiful and very magical, but Saturday showed that they had jumped up to a new level. The drumming was amazing... these guys deserve to be on the biggest stage pumping out that sound.

Kenny, Will have to look out for you the next time I happen to find myself wandering about Oban!!! Laughing

I understand from a posting on the ARDlist that while the band was excellent in Inverness, the turnout was "abysmal". If that was indeed the case, all the more credit to the band for putting in such a great performance.

Hmmmm......Not a very good review of the Inverness gig here: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

While obviously you can't please all of the people all of the time, I find it odd that the reviewer criticises many of those aspects of the band that I happen to like most. Which, of course, leads me to wonder (yet again!) why someone can possibly review a band fairly if, basically, they don't like the style of music that that band plays. Oh, and Kenny, I think it possible that there may be a passing reference to you in the review!

Hi Davey, I did speak briefly to the reviewer (I tend to locate myself near the mixing desk at any gig based on the assumption thats where the best overall sound quallity will be) and met the guy from Inverness Gigs when he came to talk to the mixing engineer.Ive got to say I agree with some (though not all) of his comments,Although not huge it was a very enthusiastic crowd,however as I said in a previous entry I dont think all the new arrangements worked.For me the big attraction to Coasts music was the depth of melody ,especially in the more "traditional" celtic(y), is that a word? songs.Coming from a rock fan (Free,Whitesnake,Skynyrd,Rush ,Zeppelin etc.......) this may sound strange but some of the new arrangements were less celtic and more rock and I feel didnt work as well.
The musicianship as ever was unquestionable,and I am desperate to hear some new material.
