With all my love, yours truly.

well, although under no obligation, the love was there last night! 2,5 hours in their bellexian world and i didn't want to leave at the end. 2nd part of the evening turned out to be very emotional. Eve, Next to you, In every sunflower and I'll see your heart...

Great great evening. Thank you so much for the music, the laugh, the tears and the amazing time it was to be there with you three. Loving you always.

Some of my favourite bands and singers have been around a long long time. In that time, they've released albums of various quality & personal preference, but I've stuck through with them & have been throughly rewarded by each & every one of them.

I've been into the bellies for 10yrs now, & I'm grateful that they haven't gone to the wayside like so many other bands that were on the scene at the same time in those early days. Every Bellies album is a treasure, some treasures are more valuable than others but are still worthy.


Top post Mully.

Last night in Vicar St. was a really special show. A few very pleasant surprises - Offshore, Slowset and particularly In Every Sunflower, which I never thought I'd see live. Great setlist, inluding three songs from Neither Am I and six from Music In Mouth. Was expecting one or two more new songs (I think they played three) but the ones they did play sounded promising, especially Safer Than Love. The banter between songs was good as well!
