Well, here they are again, setting off as they hope to continue, playing until the bitter end. 1975 signalled a comeback for the band, hit single, successful album and satisfactory tour. They are one of the few who haven't really felt the pinch of the recession, which must give them some sort of standing in Britain. Bet they play Whiter Shade of Pale as the encore on this tour as well.
