Ok, finally Myspace has got its act together and come back to life in this part of town.
The full version of Black Cloud is now on Mel's page
The video quality is ok - the original very good - considering the file conversion and shrinkage. then myspace degrade it some more!
When watching bear in mind Mel had a quick 30 minute rehearsal during the week to run thru the chords. then a soundcheck that was each song thru once. the band was nervous of playing with a legend.
also, he hadnt sung live for ....... well, years!
just went up and did it basically.
I can report that he intends to do another 2 shows after xmas and they will be announced in advance with longer sets
and a band chosen by Mel. So if anyone is interested stay tuned here and myspace as you will get an early tip off
The Tackeroo tell me they turned about 140 people away on the night
anyone want to see the encore of Cocaine?
