Another great gig, shame that all hotels were fully booked up, and I couldn't stay on Saturday night to enjoy some of the numerous after show parties that were being held after the gig... Anyway, shouts out to both Pete & Carlos for going out of their way to give me a lift up there and back, and for...

Hmmm... I hadn't noticed the tracklisting being different before posting...

Somehow I think that NME has got it wrong... Can't really see 808 calling a final track "Fat German"!!

Possibly Revolution ( http://www.revolutioninternational.com ) - okay, but they take ages to actually post the CD to your door... ...Which means it'll probably be mid-September, before they deliver it to you! Other good places to order Japanese CD's are CD Japan - http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/ (although...

Yeah, you're right about the t-shirts - you probably won't see too many of them in Manchester :wink: (a Star Trek convention - yikes, you wouldn't catch me at one!) I don't think that either Dundee or Glasgow were really the right settings for an 808 State gig (it was more of a dj-type event, rather...

Hi John, Do you know if the hotel has any more rooms available? If so, can you e-mail me, cos I've been trying to find a hotel for the past week to no avail! BTW, for those travelling by plane to Manchester on August 3rd, take note: "Workers at Manchester airport will stage a two-hour strike tomorro...

What I hadn't noticed until just now is that the gig is the day before Graham's birthday!

Well, all hotels seem to be fully booked for the Commonwealth Games, so the only option at the moment is going for Pete's idea of catching the first train back...

...Not sure what we're going to do between midnight and 7:30am, though...!!

Here's what I know... I don't have the 'Lift' 12" promo, but I believe that the 'Fon Mix' of 'Open Your Mind' is exclusive to that release. And, yup, the 'Cubik' UK 12" remix (ZANG 5 TX) does feature an exclusive mix of Olympic - the 'August 90' mix. As for the 10x10 promo, I don't know the answer t...

Sorry Markus, still wading through the numerous Massey/808 State mixes I've managed to stockpile recently - last count about 25 odd records!!

When I get through these, I'll have a chance to listen to the demos - maybe by the end of the week?
