  4. mike says:

    There is a couple of radio tapes digitized if you look hard enough on google..

  5. Mark says:

    Which version of the album in its entirety? :D

  6. Bobby's Dad says:

    Maybe one day I’ll get around to digitising something…. Currently they only exist on cassette.

  7. Bobby's Dad says:

    After 31 years, I still remember touring with them like it was just the other week.
    Luckily, I still have a bunch of desk tape recordings which I still listen to often….
    Ah…. those were the days.
    I’d love to hear them again, but now that I live in Oz, it’s just not gonna happen. :(

  8. Stuart S says:

    Looks like still tickets on Ticketweb?
    Would’ve travelled to this but already got Steven Wilson in Glasgow the same night! Oh well, money saved!

  9. korova says:

    They do have fans outside of London as well, a couple of gigs in the North would have been welcome. To be fair they are not the only group in the past couple of years to do London only gigs.

  10. mike says:

    Sold out now apparently.

  11. SimonH says:

    Thanks Paul, booked!

  12. bertielego says:

    Hope this will be recorded and released at least on CD and LP, as well as filmed and released on Bluray and/or DVD.

  13. Dan says:

    After holding out for a vinyl reissue for a few years, I finally managed to get a pristine condition copy of A Secret Wish on vinyl last month, so I won’t be needing the repressing. However, I wish I had that 2010 deluxe edition.

    They will also play in Belgium at W-Festival in August 19th. (The line-up was announced at the beginning of November. They were then announced as D:uel)
