They're probably on fire but we can't tell due to the dismal sound.


It sounds like the microphone was enclosed in a plastic bag that was then placed at the bottom of a water bucket and hid underneath a couple of thick blankets that were then placed in a house across the street from Edinburgh's Nite Club... 1 star is being generous.
Recording: Audience microphone - 0.5 stars


This was their first concert in Scotland and if the sound was better you'd probably be able to tell the audience was pretty passionate about it. Their long term relationship with Scotland started here and these lucky 400 people were responsible of it.


Well, I don't really know how to rate. It's hard to tell what the gig was truly like.
