There's a Premier Inn just round the corner from Rock City.

I offer my services as tour guide for those who wish to see the bright lights of Old Nottingham Town ;D ;D

Thanks for the offer John, but Nottingham used to be my old stomping ground back in the late 60s. It can't have changed that much, can it :-\ :-\ :-\

Hang on a minute ! Touring the LtL album in its entirety ? Has it escaped the band's attention that whenever they play a live show they play at least three quarters of LtL anyway ? So on this tour instead of playing most of it, they're going to play all of it, eh - so it'll be just like another regular Levellers show then !
(Disclaimer to the above : I am actually very fond of The Levellers, their gigs and their music ; they're one band I've been to see the most after FC)
Unique Selling Point of this tour - The Wonderstuff...this will be a brilliant double bill, looks like Southampton for me too !

To be honest Dan, the last few times I've see 'em they've swung more towards WCTW than LTL, but I know what you mean. As long as they don't do it for the 20th anniversary of Hello Pig  ::)

Fair enough. Hello Pig wasn't too bad, but a little more experimental than usual, if I remember correctly.

They're so insignificant and useless now that they are no threat to the mighty Pompey ;)

Hello Pig was a very inconsistent album imo, in that it had some really great tracks, but mingled in with some absolute tosh. LTL was certainly their classic though, along with Zeitgeist.

We were there last Saturday for Mark Chadwick at the Rescue Rooms, some very fine drinking. (and we didn't even go to the beer festival). There's a Premier Inn and a Holiday Inn on a trading estate just past the castle, not a bad walk into town but away from it all at night.

Ahh yes, Castle Marina, my brother lives on a narrowboat there. Apparently, Rebecca Adlington lives in one of the posh flats on Castle Boulevard.

The Premier Inn near Rock City is a bit closer & as far as I know is in a quiet bit of town too, & according to a certain Mr R.P.Mc Murphy the bar is open till 5.00am!!!

Just as a point of inteterest, R2 Magazine are the media sponsor of the 'Levelling The land' tour. You can see our logo on the tour adverts. R2 25 (With a huge Levellers interview and track on our covermount CD) will be on sale on the merchandising stand throughout the entire tour.
I'll almost certainly be at Newcastle.

I think that the Stuffies will be on stage around 8pm, with the Levs on around 9pm for approx a hour and a half allowing for 45mins for Levelling the land album. Therefore I will be in the Victoria pub before - good pub.

Looks very good, I think I'll have to go even if it's £23 plus booking fee etc. etc.  Wonder if I can get a discount for not turning up until after Dreadzone, or perhaps one for turning up and enduring them...
