    I might go to the Norwich date if I'm still here. I'm not sure if I like them yet though. I need to listen a bit more.

    I think Roots Rock Riot is an excellent album so i'm definately going if I can find me some company. I still haven't really given Babylon much of a chance yet but I like that song what was on NFSU2...I forget the name...

    Not to rain on anybody's parade, but I find Skindred really hit or miss live. I've seen them put on an absolutely storming performance, and then just lull away in mehville. Roots Rock Riot isn't as good as Babylon either.

    Agreed. The musicians themselves are damn lovely guys, but I wasn't too impressed with Benji's attitude the time we put them on. However, I've been told by lots of people that have also met him that he's actually lovely and awesome. But hey, what do I know.

    ive been told by a promoter and a couple of uni-journalist types that beji is arrogant and borderline racist at times.
