Superb stuff - glad to see all that hard work hasn't gone to waste.

John, are you going to go to this? :)

It would appear so...

Some good performances from Toolshed, Seaming and Ken/Graham/Howard so far...

Tonight it's Biting Tongues, Homelife's Atlas (formerly Duo), together with Spaceheads and Triclops.

I might need a week off after this... :P

Well, recovering (although I think I've developed a cold?) from those 4 nights.

Top stuff, and great to experience Toolshed, Biting Tongues, Homelife Atlas, Ken Hollings (Welcome To Mars, Ego In Exotica Sum, Dr X - the latter two featuring members of Toolshed/Tongues), Mayming (Seaming and Semay), and The Sisters Of Transistors over 4 days in London.

Recommended.

Must say it was a great experience to be able to cover so much music in a week. I thought the TOOLSHED set on Thursday Night was very special,everyone on top form. Shunt is an amazing Space and the people who run it were lovely-not shure about the Rats though and dont touch the walls.
Hope one day we can get enough budget to do it with 808 involved-could do one album a night (like Sparks did )
and well done Nick -the only one who made it every night (well me too)

Could we at least get a 'Sisters' album out before that happens?
