Thread: The music of Lindsay Cooper event

  1. #26
    Really excited about this. As per above, I imagine the Henry Cow set won't be that long. Note there are two shows. The Huddersfield date may sell slower and the acts may be more practised! On the other hand, if you're coming from overseas, I think it's fair to say that London has slightly more to offer than Huddersfield...

    If I fly all the way there, then obviously I will try to catch the second show too...
    I think its a 3 hours train ride from London.
    BTW anyone get a seating place better than row J?
    I ordered as soon as it opened and chose "best tickets" and got row J on the side...
    I tried to see whats on offer later, it was row J in the middle (better than my ticket...)
    Oh well...

    Arrrrrrgh, this Huddersfield is quite a s#!thole,
    its impossible to get to London the day after before 15:00 and no flights after 12:50 with easyjet...
    I wonder if its possible to see the huddersfield show and sleep somewhere else closer to london (or at least with better transportation)?

    That's certainly my intention. Will have to work out the logistics, but it should be worth the effort.

    If you had gone directly to the Barbican site you could have chosen a seat yourselves. I chose mine in the centre of "J" row, but those looking for close-ups have/had the opportunity to get a place in the first rows too.

    Yeah, I thought I was in there pretty quickly, but I got row P (!) on the side. Decided to chance it and release the tickets, but at my next attempt I got the exact same seats. So I took them before they sold out. I reckoned it's better to be there in a not so ideal seat than at home moping about not getting tickets

    Still lots of great seats available including dead center row C's; would love to cross the pond for this one. Let's see how fast the rest of the tickets sell and how much money I make in the next month or so. Oh why did I spend so much money on King Crimson tickets??
    Oh yeah, that's right. King Crimson.

    Man, I have never travelled a great distance to go to a concert but I was just looking at the seating chart for the Barbican and seriously about to price plane tickets when I looked at the date and realized I'd be on tour in Australia at that time. If there was any way to be there I would, this looks incredibly special.

    "Albie Morhall Comments: To answer the question from my old mate Bob Wiffen. Albert Morhall is now living in France (since 2004) As lead singer with The Mooche, remember the gigs at the Corn Exchange and it's demise. Just before close down I remember we supported "the Soft Machine" who were at the start of the Physocodelic [sic] scene [February 17, 1967] but were not received well on this night so we had to fill in for the rest of the session.

    Dude.

    Think about all of the really wealthy cats that will sitting home watching Netflix or American Idol that could easily do this thing without even blinking, yet they don't even know that this incredible music even exists. That to me is mindblowing, it's really a curious concept in life. To me, that shows how truly invaluable the gift of (good) music is, be it composer, musician, or just passionate fans. OK, that sounds pretty pretentious, eh?! Oh well

    A once in a life-time event for me, since I have never seen Henry Cow while they were still around.
    I bought my tickets today. Plural, because I talked my wife into it too. Yes!!!
    Hope to see you all there...

    Cheers,
    Peter

    I've decided to pass, it's just too much money for what is likely to be too short a set.

    I hope they film it.

    Depending on where you are it might be worth looking at Iceland Air - they are now flying from New York , Boston, Orlando etc - you cahnge at Reykjavik and there a flight to Manchester. Huddersfield is about an hour from Manchester and there's train between them. http://www.icelandair.co.uk/flights/
