    "I was at this show (I'm English) and it was great to see them so close you could pretty much shake hands with them. Small audience, mostly American, and it always does a band good to step out of its comfort zone... and London on a cold spring day was about as far from sunny colorado as you could get! The music didn't stand out, but what i really remember was how the band actually looked at each other (and not with hostility!) and just clearly enjoyed what they were doing. I saw Moe in London around the same time and the difference was stark. So, lovely guys, lovely sound, playing before i'd say 200 people max. There are better shows to download, but thank goodness they actually came over. I was certainly the better for this! "

    "It was the greatest show I`ve ever seen of the cheese, or anyone else for that matter. It probably helped that it was a small concert hall, the place was rockin` and I was only a few feet off the stage, but I was blown away and went on a month long bender of listening to nothing but the cheese. AWESOME SHOW!"

    "I was in London studying and happened to see that SCI was playing by chance. I had seen them many times before, but this was by far the best atmosphere I have ever seen a show. The setlist was great, the jams were amazing, and to be able to see the band from a few feet away was mind blowing. I brought two friends to this show who had never been to an Incident, and they are now currently hooked. This is my favorite Incident to date, and anyone who has at least heard SCI play will definitely enjoy tracks such as Come as You Are, Way Back Home, and my favorite, Restless Wind. I strongly suggest you check this show out."

    "Great show - let`s hope they come back soon. No detailed review here I`m afraid; just thought it might be of interest to know that the Sunday Times published a review of the show in the Culture section that weekend in a full page article saying how great the band was and how the sterile UK music scene sucks by comparison with the musical fluidity and expertise of jam bands like SCI who are able to carve their own niche. A good article and made me feel like I`m not the only one this side of the Atlantic to have responded to the call of the jam & the way of the cheese... "
