    even as an adequate medium, there’s still no one quite like you on planet earth.

    Was a pleasure to meet you and watch you perform, Mr. Kilbey. A bit of an indifferent audience, though.

    I asked you if the Firekites were good and you said they were “great”.
    You were right.

    If only their fans were a little greater….

    With gratitude and admiration,

    SK reviewed SK as Medium

    This Fan review – SK was on a standards and poors ratting AAA+!

    SK played a great set to a large crowd i was told the door count was just over 300! only trouble was possibly 50 or more seemed they were only there for a gas bag, Constant chatter through both the ‘Kites’ set and SK’s set. but the crowd also gave big applauses for SK and he won over the majority of the younger crowd of the kite’s fans as he moved through some of his signature tunes. He had us diehards from the first note of Providence !

    The setlist included the following but not in order Providence,almost with you,tristess, 2 marc bolan’s one inch rock plus another. Dillans love in vain, a superb rendition of the Triffid’s Lonely Stretch (i actually preffered SK solo version over the fully backed by the triffids version at the vinyards recently), Wolf was also a standout – this song sounded so good with SK on his own,Buffalo,the comedown and Hotel Womb and Don’t Look Back and Keeper were also in there and he ended with a very classy UTMW !!

    Thanks SK – really enjoyed it you a class act !

    The Kite’s were also great, if your looking for a classy album to put on your sterio give these guys a listen, they have a really cool mellow sound !

    Sounds like a pretty good time 🙂
    Tap into l’ audience.
    With a Churchy crowd you’re already in and free to channel but maybe not so much so at one like this.

    One down and one to go. Had second row seat for Jeff Beck last night and was on fire “A Day In The Life”, “Beck’s Bolero” and “Theme For Peter Gunn” were highlights. He’s got a 23 year old female bass playing virtuoso.

    If I’m alive and relatively well “I’ll” see The Inimatabe Church at the house of blues in chicago. Bought the tickets and planning on taking a fox who LOVES STARFISH BIG TIME ! She don’t like Jeff Beck but she loves Kilbey’s vocals.
