There seemed very little chemistry, the performance didn't carry that easy, relaxed vibe that good, tight reggae bands do.
I felt quite uneasy watching it. The battle of the bands that has been created will only heap more pressure on them to deliver, the UB's have moved on and are totally comfortable with themselves. Ali and the dep band really do have to deliver now if they are to be taken seriously.

NPG.

I admire your loyalty to our ex singer. You have been very supportive of him and I respect that. No vitriol, just a quiet belief in your judgement.

fair enough.

But sometimes loyalty can fly in the face of reality, and this is just such an occasion.

By any criteria that was a poor performance. There's no shame in that.

I saw a re-run of a gig we did for the montreux festival. It was pretty poor. It happens sometimes. I'm not blaming anyone in particular. The whole band failed to rise to the occasion.

The performance on jools holland was very weak. The band were competent but uninspiring. Aldi's voice sounded thin, the backing singer made no impression, and astro didn't do anything.

But the most telling thing was the look on their faces. Everyone on stage looked so glum. There was absolutely no joy in that performance. It was unsure, weak, bland and hesitant.

Sometimes, despite wishful thinking you have to admit what is in front of your face.

Even your message 'good performance' is unconvincing.
