If you can use BBC iPlayer, go there now and watch or download ATL at the Hall – let me make it easier for you – use this link: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b00jcx8x/ATLLive_at_The_Hall/. When The Bottom Line started, it wasn’t tough to find talented bands to record for sessions, but it was difficult to get the budget to record bands. When I eventually moved on to other projects, Mike Edgar took over and steered The Bottom Line to become Across The Line and the whole ATL brand.
Now talent like Paul McClean and Rigsy pushing the idea of a platform for young bands has gone further than Mike or I could ever have imagined. ATL at the Ulster Hall is everything we could have wanted with an access all areas back stage pass, a white label vinyll and a good shot of whiskey bolted on.
Congratulations guys – you did it and I was happy to be in the audience.
