Am I the only one who finds it strange that there's been virtually no mention of last week's mini tour by anyone on this forum (other than a question about newcastle).

I'm one of the old followers and have racked up 68 Nephilim gigs but I dont go anymore as it started to feel like a neph tribute band with mccoy singing.

So is the lack of posts the continuing trend of people slowly losing interest in the neph because of no new stuff/no old band members/it seeming now to be all about mccoy financing his bills than bothering with what's next or quality legacy?
Or is it just a lack of visitors to the forum?

My personal reason is it's just not the neph without the wrights and yates. The sum of the old parts made them special and now they're just not special.

I guess that's it. This place used to be for happy banter, along with FOTN-related things, but for the reasons you mentioned, plus total disrespect of the fans who kept the thing running (you can't promise "new material" for ages and hope that folks will believe you, and how many cancelled shows ?), I guess most of us have moved on. I don't know how long M. McCoy will be able to milk the FOTN name — pretty soon, no one will know who they are, and you can't attract new punters by doing bugger all. And going "see, we're all mentally now !" might be the solution for old goffsters (some will have you believe goff has always been about that "metal" thingie which rakes in the dough), but I doubt that will do, considering the competition… At least Front 242 does not pretend to be anything else but their own tribute band !

Hi guys, it was I who posted about the recent Newcastle gig. Wondering exactly the same things you mention - why is everything quiet? Not 100% sure about metal sound (strange because I like metal) it's just I prefer the 80's Neph sound. I've checked out youtube of Newcastle the other night and my initial thought was, I prefer Whitby. Why? Because it stinks of fish and you can get Trillo's ice creams there...

For the record I've liked FoTN since 1988, but hey, times change I suppose. Not always easy to accept. Accept? Remember them?.....

Hoping for dark nights in the Autumn and better times ahead.

Ciao for now.
