In the race to mediocrity
With Jethro Tull on tour in the UK, there's been the usual change in focus of visitors to the Ministry.
Not particularly a traffic spike – the band becomes more of a minority-interest topic with each 'retro' tour, and Tull-related traffic rarely exceeds more than 15% of the Ministry's overall total – but there's been a distinct increase in the number of people typing 'Jethro Tull' into the blog's internal search utility. Time for a couple of reminders.
Firstly, as I said in the foregoing paragraph, the search box on each page of the blog is an internal feature which only searches blog posts – not the associate photos pages, nor the Tull-related 'departments'. For those, please use the overall, Google-based search feature on the home page and main Tull Tour History page.
Secondly, though I maintain the Tour History, I don't like Jethro Tull myself. Apart from references such as this, you're unlikely to find relevant entries in the blog.
To be more accurate, I do still kind-of like Tull's output 1971-1995, but nothing earlier (such as the 2008 tour setlist...), nor later – my interest in what Tull are doing nowadays is purely 'academic' i.e. in order to update the Tour History.
