Have a question?
Link in the latest update should have been:
Big thank you, both for the T- shirts but also the links for the bootleg vids. Great job on both the sound and the vision!!
If I had to nite pick....jus a lil teenie weenie bit LoL it was the fact i paid for the great man to insult not only me but also my best mate Johno. The end result..... so sad i paid for two...... and got third for free did make me laugh though and left me with a huge smile. Much love to the great man Daglish !
The gig itself and the tunes played.... just awesome. So would have loved to have been there in person to see it but that ole thing called money got in the way.
I do plan to actually get to one of these gigs one year !! LoL
Many thanks Chris for all your hard work throughout the campaign and brillant communication in keeping in touch. Very much appreciated mate.
Thanks to all who took part in making it all happen :)
As I couldn't make city I am loving vids. Thanks to all backers for making it happen and to the team and artists because without any of that some wouldn't have had a great night and the rest of us wouldn't have the pleasure of watching it. I appreciate the problems and effort and am so grateful. Thasnk you everyone.
Have all the emails gone out now? I still havent received the URL for the video.
Comment received: "Thanks for the links Chris, Loving the Freeloaders"
Right, they have to change their name RIGHT NOW!
"But is everyone enjoying the video?", that's the important question... :)
Indeed, that's the main symptom.
At 36:37 of PPOT video the volume decreases suddenly, right during Knucklebuster as well :( I guess these are some of the mixing issues you talked about before.
You know what? It's strangely in keeping with the chaotic nature of the event that the distribution of the files (despite my best efforts) is also chaotic!
OK, got SID80s link wrong. Auntie Anna said that the credits have disappeared from the end of the PPOT video: is anyone else seeing that?
Bootleg emails going out now in 5 batches. Everyone should have their links by this evening. In the end we went with H264 MP4s, and there's about 14Gb of download in total (4 + 4 + 4 + 2).
At least the video recording quality is mostly fabulous :)
I went to last BackInTime Brighton, where I did a my own bootleg using and OLD DV Camera and sometime I like to view it. I think that your recording is anyway better. As you said it is a Bootleg and not a DVD...I think it is ok to share anyway.
Indeed. Well, there have been some supportive comments on and off-line: enough I hope for the acts to be reasonably confident that they won't get blamed!
re: the BIT Live recordings, I assume the masters sound basically like the Scenesat broadcast? It's not fantastic, but then you've never advertised it as anything but a "bootleg", right? It is what it is, a live experience. Sure there will be surly people expecting more for their money but I'm certain most people won't have a problem with it. From experience I know that PA people are a nuisance. :)
What he said :)
Turning them inside out before washing is probably a good suggestion.
I should ask Marcel, but we went for the best quality we could get.
ok, good to know, was just a bit worried that the pic would be ruined if washed
I think they is robust enough to wash. These are premium T-shirts that should last a fair while, not the crap kind. They remind me of the BIT 3 T-shirts and they lasted for literally years.
T-Shirt arrived today chris, postal service obviously pretty good this week :)
looks nice, the logo feels a bit plastic tho, is it safe to put in washing machine or will it come off in wash
Looking at the photos Chris linked to, I must say that the look in Ben's eyes playing the flute reminds me greatly of Ian Anderson. The same piercing gaze - and that is a compliment :)
Forgot to post, my photos from the event here! https://www.flickr.com/photos/mayhemers/sets/72157654527825828

Now I'm in the middle of the admin for sending out the T-shirts ;-)
Was just showing my other half fun from past BITs, YT search found 'Gina G, Just a liitle bit live'.... hmmmmm
Counting the hours now...
I'm in a single room about a mile from the venue, but if anyone needs an emergency floor to sleep on, I may take them in heh. Chris knows all about that from the last time we had a BIT Live in Brighton :p
Have a great show everyone! x
Just checked last minute hotel availability (for anyone who hasn't booked a space as yet) and the following are available:
Ibis Brighton (close to train station and for 37 bus direct to venue)
Mercure Brighton (on the seafront)
Travelodge Brighton (Preston Road)
Holiday Inn Brighton Seafront
The following are full:
Premier Inn Brighton City Centre
Travelodge Brighton Seafront
BTW, Russ, once I have the signed IR CDs, I'll put the ones that don't sell on the day on the BIT Megafounder page. BTW, they're not signed by IR, they will be signed by people at BIT.
Video streaming isn't possible given the venue's bandwidth limitations, but audio streaming will be available, and will be announced soon (I just hope the mixer has enough outs for that).
Any chance of having live video streaming (or even audio-only streaming) for backers that won't be there?
(or if you need said thing)
Now's the time to put in the comments if you're coming from anywhere and have a car seat/spare sofa-bed for latercomers!
Excellent news about the instant remedy launch. Will we be able to buy the cd from c64audio.com ?
Just uploaded a preview of the new track I've written especially for BIT Brighton 2015. Full version revealed on the night. https://soundcloud.com/mattgrayc64/back-in-time-brighton-2015-theme-preview
No, they'll be sent by email. I'm still debating how to deal with the "backers pick up their extra stuff at BIT Brighton" thing. Things tend to get quite hectic, so it's difficult to have any system which relies on looking stuff up.
Out of curiosity, have the tickets themselves been sent out yet ?
New insult T-shirt design previewed :)
The BIT Brighton T-shirt is the image on the front of the Kickstarter, the Code of the Ninja image is here: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/code-of-the-ninja/x/3743815
Regarding t-shirt survey - is there a place to see the 2 different t-shirt images?
Mr Zzapback, get your mental to convince your physical! Might be able to get third bed into our room if that helps? Email me for more info if needed.
Hey Mr. Black, physically not sure yet!
Most people's are collected immediately, but for any payment failures they have to notify, wait a few days, and then try again. Kickstarter say it can take about two weeks to sort that out.
Just checked through my emails, my pledge was collected by KS on the 9th of March, not sure what is taking them so long ?
Hey Mr. ZzapBack, you physically going now?
And also... a possibility to go Back in Time Quadrophenia stylee! Must book now.
I need to bring a scooter.
Flights booked! Hotel booked (weeks ago). Event On. Let's GO! :)
