The support act was really boring btw. Felt like a bot playing 30 second previews from an ambient compilation, when he started into that second piece I nearly shouted at him to get off the stage.

Sleater-Kinney also. Thought they were great. I'm not nuts about the new album but it sounded briliant live. Like the 5 piece line-up. Gave the set a real variety. Better than last time.
Yeah, I enjoyed it more than the last one too

I really liked the support. Something clicked for me in the first couple of minutes so I managed to get inside the music. Reminded me of Nuno Canavarro's Plux Quba LP being stretched and twisted and reflected into a couple of larger scale pieces. Only bits I didn't like were the occasional noisy stabs.

I think watching it at the same time as other people was the point. I was texting back and forth with my brother while it was on, was kind like chatting at a gig. Don't think it would have made much difference whether Nick himself was playing live or not

... though having said that I spent Sat night dancing in the sitting room to a live stream from Fatboy Slim, and the fact that it was live (and you could see other people dancing to the same thing all around the world) was a good buzz

The GBV one was pre-recorded too. It does seem like a bit of a "cheat" for that reason but on the other hand it means it can be filmed/edited properly and the sound mixed properly afterwards too. There were little filmed inserts at various points as well. I mean it's really an entirely new medium so interesting to see what people will do with it. What I found really odd about the GBV one was the empty silence between songs.

Marillion are not having their conventions this year, so they are doing what they call a "couch convention". Not entirely sure what they're doing during the daytime, lots of Q&As I think, they'll be live but then each night of the weekend they're hosting watch along screenings of concerts that are available on BlueRay already. Not sure how it's going to work. I think it's free. Though they did sell Merch for it.
