I don't suppose anyone knows who's currently in Stomp? I realise it's an odd question but I really don't want to phone them up. Thanks!

A dustbin, a broom, a fork handle, a rake, plumbing tubes oh! and the kitchen sink!

Ugh, don't remind me. Stomp came to my school in its pre-West End, constantly-on-Blue-Peter days and I was bored sh*tless by the whole affair even then.

I saw it in its first big London concert, at the Royal Festival Hall in about 1994/5?
I left in the interval and had to drink copious amounts of gin to forget it!

I have never seen this, but came close seeing it on Saturday matinee, as everything else was sold out, bny chance I asked if they had 1 ticket to see Sunset Boulevard and I was in.

Is it really that bad? Always wanted to see it out of curiosity!

It's fine as a four minute filler on the Royal Variety, but a whole evening can get a litle tedious...

I liked it, but I wouldn't rush to see it again.
It was one of the first shows of any kind I had seen in London and was different to anything I had seen before. It wasn't a play, it wasn't a musical it was Stomp.
I think it is like Marmite. You won't just not like it you'll hate it (If you don't love it that is).

Percussion should always be up for discussion!!!

I watch the you tube clip from Mama and have to say I enjoyed it.

I remember being at 42 Street Station and seeing this street artist called pot and pan man and he absoutley blew me away.

I saw the first US tour and as a percussionist, I loved every moment. The talent and musicianship were stellar. If you don't like drums or percussion, then you obviously won't enjoy it.

A colleague of mine was banging on a coffee jar about fifteen minutes ago. When I suggested that if he continued I would shove it up his arse (the coffee jar, that is), he said, "Don't you think I could be in Stomp?" Thinking about it, I had to say yes, although he was actually slightly more interesting and a tiny bit less irritating.

It was Nescafe. Not Gold Blend, just that sh*t with the red lid.
