    I blame Wynton, what was the question?

They are supposed to be touring North America, including a stop at a small club in Toronto in the Spring. Hopefully, it will happen.

    I saw Cavalcade on a couple of year-end lists and I've been listening. It hasn't sunk in but it feels like something that could. My first listen it just seemed like Mars Volta with less character, but second time through I started hearing a lot more distinct sounds and styles. I'll keep chipping away at this one; I'd love to get enthusiastic about a younger band.

    Good call on getting those Dry Cleaning tickets. I tried to pull the trigger yesterday, and it only allowed me to select one ticket. I assumed that something was wrong with the web site. Tried again today, and now online tickets are no longer available. Went back to the main page....sold out. Three months in advance. You snooze, you lose. Better order my Black Midi tickets before they get sold out too!

    Just saw Dry Cleaning a few days ago in Bristol, it was ok but slightly underwhelming, I think the best way to listen to them is still at home where you can catch all the nuance of the vocals.

    P.S. in accordance with the thread title- I met Geordie of Black Midi in the audience of the Van Der Graaf Generator London gig! Turns out he is a fan...
    What a nice young lad, had a small chat with him in the intermission.

    Wow, that's awesome. Sounds like a great couple of nights! I'm still going to see Dry Cleaning in a couple of months. It's at a pretty small venue, so hopefully the acoustics will be good. Good to know that such a talented, young musician is a nice lad with taste.

    Autobuy, obviously.
    Got tickets to see them in the Manchester Psych festival in September.

    Good, and it's funny to hear Geordie's halfway impersonation - although rather than sounding like Don's uncle's "fine big Beef Heart," it sounds more like a Bee Fart.

    Also, Morgan is incapable of playing anywhere but in the pocket, so they don't quite get that falling-down-the-stairs rhythmic feel.
