Bellowhead – Cheese and Grain, Frome

My last trip to the Cheese and Grain a couple of years ago was co-incidentally also the last time I saw Bellowhead.

Support tonight came from Ahab who were good, but sounded a bit too “busy” for my liking. Too many singers all singing at the same time. Bellowhead were superb as always, and actually manage to sound decent at the Cheese and Grain which is usually sounds a bit muddy. They played for getting on for two hours finishing off with two encores.

Saying good-bye to Google

It’s not been a good week for Google. First they release an “update” to Reader which pretty much completely ruins it, then the next day make the same update available for GMail with pretty much the same result. Finally, for now, they release a GMail app for iOS, which when you run it presents you with an error saying

no valid ‘aps-environment’ entitlement string found for this application

Google fail

Does anyone at Google actually test anything they release? It doesn’t look like it from here.
