Heaven or Hell

My first gig of the New Year and what a gig to blow the cobwebs off.  This band has always been one of my firm favourites on the North East band circuit so playing with a full light show at The Queen Vic in South Shields meant I had to go. Huge crowd all night with many singing along and dancing, a great atmosphere.

Enjoy the photos !

Van Hailen – Queen Vic

There was quite a build up to the debut Van Hailen gig so we got there early to get a seat to find the place was pretty empty but fear not as by the time the band hit the stage the bar was full and continued to get fuller and fuller as the night went on. This was classic Van Halen at it’s best. I knew only 20% of the tracks as I’ve never been a big VH fan but despite this I enjoyed every minute of this debut gig. I can see the band having a huge following very soon, well done lads.

Bon Jovi Forever – Morpeth Riverside

It’s not often BJF play north of the Tyne so a show in Morpeth was always going to be a “must go to” gig. With support from Geoff Mull this show was sure to be popular. The Riverside is a new venue for me and from what I can gather fairly new to the music scene, certainly for rock music but fear not the venue and crowd were well prepared for an evening of live music.

From Order Comes Chaos

A Bubbles Bar favourite and this certainly showed with the amount of fans crammed into Bubbles on Thursday, all there to see the Ashington lads play.  I’ve seen the band before but this WAS the best gig i’ve seen them play, lots of energy and some self penned tracks that would be at home on many a “big band” album. Well done lads.

Mofred – a company to avoid ?

On November 13th I took delivery of a shiny new Ipad Pro, a much needed upgrade from my 3 year old Ipad 2.

I needed a case for it and after a long look I chose a lovely looking cover sold on Amazon.co.uk by Mofred, who seemed on the face of it to be a reliable and trustworthy company.

Delivery was quoted as being between November 17th and 21st, but the 21st came and went and no sign of the case.

I left a review on Amazon expressing my disappointment of having not received my goods and was quickly contacted my Mofred asking me to remove the feedback with the promise of a replacement case being posted on Monday 23rd November to be sent recorded delivery on Tuesday 24th November. This date came and went and no case. On contacting Mofred I was told the case had been sent but a tracking number wasn’t available, I was also given a full refund so long as I removed my feedback from Amazon, maybe a bit of a bribe?

I have now contacted Mofred on 8 further occasions to ask about the whereabouts of my case but my emails are now ignored, I guess they won’t be sending it.

So if you’re looking for a case for any device I would suggest avoiding Mofred totally and look elsewhere.

http://www.mofredproducts.com/ – avoid !

29/11 UPDATE – The company say they have send a replacement item via Special Delivery but still can’t supply a tracking number. They say they will send another but wonder “where the £6.95 postage will come from”.  My answer was to supply a tracking number and no more postage would be needed !

30/11 UPDATE – Received an email saying another case, this would be the 4th, has been dispatched but I need to be patient as they have a backlog. I’m still waiting for the tracking numbers from the 3 previous dispatches. Given that I ordered the case on November 12th I think my patience has worn a little thin. I have advised the company that I am am now suing them for breach of contract. A solicitor friend has told me it’s a simple case under the sale of goods act.  I have messaged MOFRED and advised them.  Watch this space.
