Re: Mani selling a lot of equipment

Assume it's just a clear-out, rather than for the money. He'd be punting the Jackson Pollock if he was in dire need. Maybe £3m+ doesn't go that far these days? I see that 'Second Touring Limited', which is the company they used for the gigs, issued a formal notice of liquidation at the end of Octobe...

Re: When Did You Know It Was Very Likely To Be 'Over'

When Reni didn't come out after the Barcelona gigs you can think "he just doesn't want the aggro". When he then vetoed Amsterdam encore, it was clear they weren't a cohesive unit. Who leaves their "band mates" high and dry at a gig ffs. Surprised they even got to 2016 in all honesty.

Re: Live Recordings Archive

Thanks Layers!! Great to have the Fuji rock stuff (went on my own).

Did you used to be on Limewire in the early 00s? Some guy had all the same live stuff but wouldn't share it as I had nothing but a muffed GG bootleg to swap...

Re: "Don't be sad it's over, be happy it happened"

That Mani rant must be legit, it has the same over-punctuation as all his (verified) posts on the scream forums. even after Barcelona, Reni had fked off early doors and the others were baffled as to why he'd just legged it. The others came out to say hello and sign autographs and we're just like "er...

Re: Rosy News 2017

Seven ages of Paris has said all that needs said. IB has been an arse for years (have seen him kicking someone from the stage at a gig at Fabric years ago, never liked him since).
