Tour? ...again?

Before the Forest became endangered we were beginning to organize a Forest Records tour. Not so much a 'hire a van and spend a lot of money kind of thing' but meeting up with our friends across the UK and having a good time.....I was hoping we could get that idea back up off the ground, whos with me!?

Record shop

I've been thinking we should have a little forest records shop with our own (and anyone elses) cds for sale and just take like £1 into a savings for further music projects.....just a little stall by the counter or something?

Re: I hereby apologise...

I'm not taking it to heart or anything :) i've had way more good experiances than bad ones here. I agree with the use of downstairs for poems/quite acoustic acts though - for the festival time anyway I think it would have a better atmosphere :)
