Re: The Spirit of Live Music

Heheheh i hope this isn't another monster.....
Obviously the music is the important thing - that is what i was trying to get across, but if i saw something advertised as a 'loop show' i would expect to see the looping done, sorry if i was unclear on this. I agree with you it doesn't have to be obvious, maybe it the 'technical' side of my brain kicking in .......... I was always one of those kids that had to get my toys in peices to see how it worked, i guess some things never change.
