    That would make a good cold medicine commercial.
    "head like concrete inside, hollow and numb" Made me fill kinda sick.

    I must've tapped into the universal consciousness as last night I was feeling weird, dizzy and shaky all night long and I'm not even sick. Hope you feel better soon and play some great shows. I'm just hoping that the power of rock-n-roll via my iPod will cure me as I'm flying to a winter wonderland in a little while now. Will probably have no such luck, ha!

    Look after those vocal chords Mr K. Your voice sounded a little husky first few songs in Byron, wondered if you were getting a cold…..

    Good to hear your music heals you, it certainly has healed me over the years. The Church helped me escape/ transcend a traumatic period as a teenager (along with good books & films). None of my friends were into the Church so I went to gigs by myself (from 14 onwards)
    It had a profound effect on me to see you play again, it's been over 15 years. Thank you so much for all the beautiful, poetic art & music you create.

    My 10 year old son really enjoys your music, he fell asleep listening to Untitled #23. He mumbled to me "it's very soothing" as he drifted off…

    Hope the cold is better soon and I trust the folk down there are appreciating the opportunity to see the best band on this planet.

    Some singers sound sexy when they have a cold, but your voice doesn't need any enhancements. Just make sure you rest up in between gigs, cos it's a busy time for you now. I already know that music is one of the best therapies of a whole range of things, but I'll have to try and remember that it works for colds too. Have fun!!

    That strange thing visible out of the corner of your eye might well have been the drunken silverhaired Chris-Walsh's-brother shadowing the stage at all sides and looking for a good spot to throw his air guitar shapes.

    We had a luvverly time — loved hearing blisters raised on the surface of Tantalized… and I can vouch for the healing power of the sonic waves (which were considerable about three people back from the stage, where we were standing). My bronchial-slash-pneumoniac husband made a reasonable recovery next day.

    Hi sk, thanks for a great night of music from the greatest band on earth last night! The theatre and its double was a highlight for me, but of course the whole set was mindblowing as always!
    Looking forward to the acoustic set this evening, see you there.
    Love Amanda

    What's going on with MWP? He looks like he has been sleeping on a park bench under newspaper.
