And so to one of my most anticipated sets of the day. More 2012 were just known as More when I saw them open the 1981 Monsters Of Rock festival at Donington Park and i have not seen them since. The longest serving members of the band are bass guitarist Barry Nicholls who joined in 1982 and Mike Freeland in 1998. More split a few times but the latest reincarnation came to be in 2011 when they were called Exmore which changed to More 2012. The band currently contain the legendary producer Chris Tsangarides,a very big name in the music business. Their 9 song set featured material from their début album Warhead from 1981 and Blood And Thunder the following year along with unreleased track Scream and a killer cover of Judas Priest’s Touch Of Evil with Mike hitting some very high notes. Just as it could not get any better, they ended with Way Of The World and Atomic Rock and it was just like being 17 again listening to their session on the Tommy Vance Friday Rock Show on Radio 1. It all seemed to go so fast unfortunately.
