        Brutal, yes, but don't assume I'm reliable until you see the same
gig :-) I think I may well have stupidly high standards. I blame the
Hawkwind of 1996 and 2001 for setting them. And also Bedouin and
Litmus. And the Bevis Frond. And various other bands. Okay, I do sometimes
give good reviews. But that's not the point :-) Yours,
