    OK, i am an old git so ignore me ... I know a live gig isn't a record. But when your music is so good, your vocals so excellent and contrasting, your writing so strong ... and I go to the gig, and I might as well be standing next to a generator on a building site. Just about caught some vocals in a couple of slower numbers - but generally just a complete wall of noise, with base and drums drowning out any lead guitar and certainly any vocals. (The base vibration waves actually made me feel sick as they hit me across the room.) I picked up on the band following the King Blues - but would't waste my money on a live gig again. Couldn't face staying to the end. Apart from the handful of fans who knew every word before they arrived and could guess what was being sung, I am sure anyone else would have gone away not knowing what a great sound you can produce. ("While you were sleeping" is brilliant.) Do yourselves a favour - take out your ear-plugs (god I wish i had them last night) and stand in front of yourselves, and listen to what the audience is hearing. (When did you last do that?) Clearly your sound crew think it is fine. It isn't. You can sing your songs with all the live energy without this. You are a ska /punk band - not bloody Motorhead. If you think your gigs are like this - they are not: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=484psuotV98 If only they were.
