Big Big Train – Queen’s Hall, Edinburgh – 26 Oct 2019

I found out about Big Big Train from twigging that guitar hero Dave Gregory (ex of XTC) was playing with them. Couldn’t miss a chance to see the great man for the first time since 1981 ! I quite liked a few live videos I had seen but listening to some BBT albums I was less impressed. That impression was backed up by this performance. Long ‘pieces’ rather than songs that have typical prog rock sections with impressive dynamics and playing, but short on tunes for me and with lyrics that think they are clever but to me are really just annoying! Dave’s guitar bits were of course my favourite, but additional touches really, that couldn’t transform what I thought were tedious numbers. This is BBTs first ever tour so their loyal fans went wild for it and I was happy for them!
