Default Let's revive the igloo :)

I noticed the little igloo icon disappeared from Damien's website...
He gave up on us

So let's bring the forum back to live. Facebook is great, but the igloo is less flighty and a great source of information for unreleased stuff.

Your threads are great.

I'm still sorting out something to put on here for the Palma show last month. Show was great for me, but he seemed "a bit precious" that night.

Much prefer Eskimo to Farcebook stuff anyway!

I think a lot of those views are just people directed here by google when they search for damien related stuff + it is really hard to get your account verified (I had to wait a couple of weeks or months even back in the day), by the time newbies are able to post, they lost their motivation :-/

and they can't tell us if it doesn't work...

I don't know if it's any indication but the name of the "newest member" at the bottom of the page has changed since yesterday. So people are definitely trying to sign up.

I think so,
because sometimes people (during shows) told me it's not easy to sign up,
they are reading here, but they can't write an answer....

May be we could write to the "administrator"...

also some people told me they're signed up but cannot start a thread
but I think thats normal in all forums
I think you got to have like 10 normal posts first or something
like posts replying to people in posts that you didn't start
and then start a new thread

I think it's normal that your first post cannot be a new thread

but not 100% sure

I haven’t been here in a while, either. I’m trying to keep up with it all, but I miss the good old days when we only had to check here for everything.

Hope everyone is doing well

Thought the same earlier today and looks like it's all still here, so happy Christmas to everyone.

Any news/thoughts on as and when anything new is hopefully arriving from Damien?

It's over 17 years since I first saw him play live at the Wedgewood Rooms in Portsmouth, Hants, UK and about 2 and a half years since the last show I saw in Majorca, hopefully when it's safe to tour again we might see him out and about again.

Fingers crossed that 2021 will be better.

Whereabouts were you sat in Majorca? We were in front row of the circle seats 18 & 19, next to us was a blonde lady from the UK who'd been to a few Damien gigs before as well.

I thought that gig was pretty good even allowing for him being a bit precious a couple of times when the audience was being a bit noisy.

Thought the one at Bristol in 2015 was one of the best shows I've seen him do though especially the last song of the night, It Takes a Lot to Know a Man

For Palma i was seating raw D, seat 13.
The show was good but sometimes the audience was noisy, indeed.


Sadly i was not in Bristol.
But i went to Dublin and Cork in july 2015.

Dublin had sold out by the time we decided that we'd like to go to it. Then before we'd finalised going to Galway, the Bristol gig came up and I'd never been to the Colston Hall(as it was then) and it's only a two hour drive to Bristol.

So that made more sense, plus it continued the run of always seeing him a different venue each time we've seen him.

Thanks for the explanations !


It seems Galway was very noisy (audience)...


You were lucky with only two hour drive to Bristol.
And i learned they changed the name of the Colston Hall, because of "BlackLivesMatter".


And it's a good idea to always seeing him in a different venue each time.
