According to the Grauniad's gig guide last Saturday, there's a "one-off" drum legends show this Friday at the Brighton Dome...

Pete York, Herman from the Scorpions and... GINGER BAKER - who I thought had retired permanently from drumming - certainly live performance - due to ill health!!

Seems it's not sold out - I'm gutted I can't make it - probably my last chance to see Ginger play live - then again, if his drumming capabilities have (understandably) declined, it would be a bit sad to see.

We saw Ginger in Austin on his last U.S. visit, just a couple of years back. His skills were impeccable, although his health was clearly not. I hope some Talkawhilers can make it to the Brighton Dome and I hope they experience him as we did.

Just booked to see Steve Hackett in Birmingham in November. Thought I'd have no trouble getting a ticket but it's about 98% sold out already. This will be my first gig since Cropredy 2017 and I hadn't quite realised how much ticket prices were creeping up..... ::)

They have been on sale a while; I got a ticket for Reading when they were announced. It's the first time I have held a ticket for a gig that was more than a year away. I am sure I will forget to go.

I have a ticket for that Reading concert too, and likewise have never bought a ticket over a year in advance.  I'm relying on my calendar and the friends I'm going with to make sure I don't miss it!

Just purchased - Squeeze Songbook Tour, September 17, 2019, at the Paramount in Austin.

The Paramount may not be an ideal venue for Squeeze.  At Cropredy, and at the 2008 Squeeze show at La Zona Rosa here in Austin, there was lots of joyful bopping throughout the show.  You can't bop in the fixed chairs at the Paramount...

His band were pretty good, but his voice was obviously suffering and he had a persistent cough. Very laid back and no foot-stompers.

It will be interesting to see if this band develops enough to produce an album.

I particularly enjoyed Matt Worley's singing. I admit I was waiting for a foot-stomper, or a bit of "Hey, hey Mama, said the way you move...."!!  :) but I enjoyed the evening. The support were very good.

I wasn't moved to applaud for the sound man tho - he needs to get his act together  ???

Another of my own promotions tonight Ida WenÝe + Fay Brotherhood at the Musician.

This is the sort of gig I love putting on even though I know it's likely to cost me. Few promoters will now put on acts that are not well known. But after reading the review below how could I resist.

"Ö a childlike fragility that makes the songs sound like whimsical folk for fairy tales with a sinister undertow. Her voice Ė weary but cute, with the power to cut through Ė is perfect; she sounds like the young narrator of her own magical-malevolent fantasiesÖĒ The Guardian

So if you fancy a bit of Nordic Noir folk from Denmark, you know where to be tonight.

By coincidence, I'm listening to Eric Clapton's autobiography, and he singled out Wizz as an early inspiration. Have fun!

Tonight, the inimitable Robin Trower at the Moody Theater at ACL Live, in wet and rainy downtown Austin, Texas!

Miserable weather and pretty poor ticket sales, I'm sorry to say.  This is his third visit to Austin in the last four years, after a 30-year drought.  I view each show as possibly my last opportunity to see him.

In about an hour, Sammy Hagar and "The Circle," ACL Live!

This supergroup is composed of Sammy Hagar, Michael Anthony (ex-Van Halen), Jason Bonham (needs no introduction), and guitarist Vic Johnson (of the BusBoys).  

I've avoided spoilers of the setlist, but I presume I will be treated to some Van Hagar, some "I Can't Drive 55" era Hagar, and a little Led Zeppelin.  They've also released two albums of originals, so I'll have time to go to the bathroom and wander around the mezzanine.   :)

Not exactly folk, but I think I'll have a good time.

I think you're totally underestimating  the Ivor Novello Award winning Mr Kemp! Apart from being a fine songwriter, he is a superb guitarist and a close friend of Nick Mason  :o he was delighted to have been asked to play with Saucerful of Secrets and put in a great performance. Nothing that I could see said "naff 80's pop star"!!!

I was surprised at how well this music worked in live performance, especially since it was probably unfamiliar to a large part of the (very enthusiastic) audience in Houston.

I just don't get it, it makes me feel like I am getting old. I really can't understand why you would rather capture that special moment in a concert rather than being part of it, e.g. Filming meet on the ledge at cropredy, filming Vincent black lightning at a Richard Thompson concert, smoke on the water, paranoid. I would rather be there.

Trying to decide whether I can be fussed to drag myself over to Brighton to see The Dovetail trio this evening. Would like to see them but brighton on a Bank Holiday has all sorts of disadvantages, not least of transport o get there and back.

Otherwise my next gig (sort of) will be Tubular Bells for Two on Friday. More of a show than a gig I think and I have no real idea what to expect but it has been highly acclaimed by critics and I am looking forward to it.

Then it is Otway & Barrett's farewell tour on Saturday which should be a lot of fun.

Off to see Flook at the Brewery Arts Centre in Kendal this evening. They've recently set up an account on Instagram with the username flookquartet if anyone's interested. Followed by caradillonsings - no surprise there as Ed Boyd has been a part of Cara's backing band on and off for a while.

And I see their new album is now available. Might just have to make a purchase this evening.  :)

Not a gig as such, but stand up comedians (do the others sit down?  :-\ ) Jared Christmas and Andy Askins trying out their Edinburgh Fringe material. 2 hours of (hopefully) comedy for £15!!

Apparently, most comedy clubs only allow comedians a 45 minute slot, but in Edinburgh you have 60 minutes to fill, so comedians are crying out for places that will allow them to try out their full 60 minute routine. Our local theatre www.thesmallspace.co.uk (the UK's smallest theatre) are happy to accommodate them! Winner, winner, chicken dinner and all that  :D

Me too. Especially his first two albums and his most recent collection is pretty good too.

Paul Rodgers, Simon Kirke, Todd Ronning (bass) and Howard Leese (ex-Heart) (guitars, mandolin, occasional keyboard, backing vocals and pleasantly surprising lead vocal on "All Along The Watchtower). This is the same line-up that has comprised Bad Co. since 2012, minus (sadly) Mick Ralphs.  Rich Robinson, ex-Black Crowes, played second guitar on their very cool 2016 tour, but they've been doing without a second guitar since then.

Canít remember if Iíve posted this before so apologies but quite excited about this! On Friday 21 June itís back to my misspent youth although now a slightly different occasion than when I first bought the tickets. Itís Buzzcocks, The Skids and Penetration at the Royal Albert Hall (I bet some 40 years ago they never thought theyíd be playing the RAH!). With the sad passing of Pete Shelley, the event has been turned into a celebration of his life. The whole evening will be compered by Paul Morley with Penetration and Pauline Murray opening. The Skids with Richard Jobson are on next followed by Buzzcocks. This will include original members Steve Diggle, John Maher and Steve Garvey.  Not sure if Howard Devoto will be there though. There will also be guest vocalists including Dave Vanian, Captain Sensible, Thurston Moore,Tim Burgess and Peter Perrett. I did have a spare ticket I was going to advertise on this site but itís been taken by a friend so sorry all  ;)

Excellent band, did full justice to the material and universally well recieved by the audience , who, unsurprisingly, were largely men of a certain age.  The theatre was a bit less than half full which demonstrates the difficulty of attracting a crowd if its not a name but on the upside it was over by 945pm which left plenty of time to get slopped up in a nearby pub before phoning the younger daughter for a lift home😁

Tonight, dear fiends, im off to Sale Waterside to see the Goldhawks play Quadrophenia by th'Oo.
I saw it on a regular emither the theatre sends me and quite fancied it.
I will let you know tomorrow how good, bad or indifferent it was.
I'm quite looking forward to it.


Excellent band, did full justice to the material and universally well recieved by the audience , who, unsurprisingly, were largely men of a certain age. †The theatre was a bit less than half full which demonstrates the difficulty of attracting a crowd if its not a name but on the upside it was over by 945pm which left plenty of time to get slopped up in a nearby pub before phoning the younger daughter for a lift home😁


Because of Jim's post, we decided to see this band too.  Wow!  Blown away.  Such a passion for their subject.  They said they might do Tommy next.  The encore was Behind Blue Eyes and Baba O'Reilly.  Thanks for the heads up, Jim.

This tour has been focusing on the 1974 material and line up so that year's live album in its expanded form is your best starting point. The UK shows earlier this year we're tremendous, as long as Luther's pedals are working.

Tickets for this show went on sale almost a year ago, and promptly sold out. A friend with connections was able to hook me up with post-sell-out tickets at face value, which has never happened before or since. :)

As he did last time, he's making official recordings of the live shows available for download. No complaints here.

I'm guessing that John Kirkpatrick is the one you know? (RT sideman, Albion Band alumnus. Father of Beni etc)

I saw Terry Hiscock supporting Merry Hell earlier this year Very entertaining in an early 70s singer songwriter kind of way. Witty patter between songs and some excellent acoustic guitar work from what I recall. I can't help with any of the others I'm afraid.

Fran & Belinda are mother & daughter. Fran sings with Stick in the Wheel & plays accordion. The Wilsons are brothers from up north and sing unaccompanied harmonies they're very good.

This is very exciting for us all and furthermore there are rumours of new material, which could mean we might see the boys back in the studio before long.

He's always said he'll know (most recently in his book) when to stop.

I thought it was really interesting that the advertising for the new 'Oo album had Pete writing: "This album is almost all new songs written last year, with just two exceptions. There is no theme, no concept, no story, just a set of songs that I (and my brother Simon) wrote to give Roger Daltrey some inspiration, challenges and scope for his newly revived singing voice. Roger and I are both old men now, by any measure, so Iíve tried to stay away from romance, but also from nostalgia if I can. I didnít want to make anyone feel uncomfortable. Memories are OK, and some of the songs refer to the explosive state of things today. I made new home studio demos of all these songs in the summer of 2018 using a wide collection of instruments old and new.Ē

Hopefully, it really is just a cold or something...

There are apparently two of Pete's demos from the mid 60s that they updated and recorded for the album but according to the interview with Pete in the current issue of Mojo they did not make the final track listing and may be used as bonus tracks for something down the road.

Against my better judgment, I am actually quite excited about this album. I just wish I could find something to listen to this year by someone under the age of 70.

Faun play in London

Joy oh Joy.

My favorite German Pagan Folk rock band Faun are playing in Britain ( second time ever I believe ) at the Union Chapel on Saturday April 25th 2020.

Its the only UK date of the Best of FAUN tour.

Oh double Joy of Joy. I have already got my ticket.

Now now take it easy Trev. Too much excitement is not good for you!

Does he ever travel overseas anymore? His gig schedule is the most leisurely I've ever seen. I think he likes to spend 5 nights a week in his own bed. (I think that's one reason he quit touring with Elton John years ago - Elton wanted to do waaaaaay more shows than Billy did.)

Off to see 'friend of Cropredy' Damian Wilson (& Friends)tonight in the lovely and intimate surroundings of St Pancras Old Church.
It's in celebration of his 50th birthday so should be good I hope.

Further gigs I have lined up between now and Xmas are:

Brandy Clark - US Country singer - next Friday in Shepherd's Bush
Marillion with String Quartet - Nov 15th in Southend
Elles Bailey - Country Blues singer from Bristol Nov 22nd in Basildon. Discovered her this year at Ramblin' Man Fair and thought she was great.
The Comet Is Coming - US alt-prog-jazz-indie outfit Dec 5th in Shepherd's Bush - taking a bit of a punt here as only know what I've heard on 6 Music
Steeleye Span - 50th Anniversary at the Barbican Dec 17th - 'nuff said  :)

Martin Barre Band with Special Guests Clive Bunker and Dee Palmer, Dosey Doe's Big Barn, The Woodlands, Texas, April 18, 2020!

You could have knocked me over with a feather at the news that this line-up of the Martin Barre Band would schlep themselves all the way down into Texas!!!!!

Assuming no Austin show is added, I'll be there at The Woodlands, and/or at the Arlington Music Hall on April 17. The Big Barn is a unique music venue, with good food, great sound and excellent sight lines throughout.

I never had the pleasure of seeing Tull with Martin (or Clive, or Dee) so I am really looking forward to this one.

Not for me, but did we know that Supergrass are back with dates next year (after playing the Pilton Party a few weeks ago)?  A couple of decent ditties aside, I've always thought they were very overrated and the 2008(?) Cropredy performance certainly didn't change my mind about that...

They weren't good at Cropredy but there were extenuating circumstances. They were in the process of breaking up. Relations in the band were fractious and they were promoting an album that was far from their best. They were generally however a fantastic live band (which you would not know from their Cropredy show) and their first four albums are all terrific and inventive records. Road To Rouen also has a lot of fans. They got lumped in with the Britpop crowd but at their height they knocked most of their contemporaries into a cocked hat. Sadly I can't get to any of the reunion gigs.

Always had a soft spot for Supergrass...Although I am a bit biased as they were/are a local band ::)...Late in the Day and Richard 111 are terrific songs...It's a shame they were lumped in with the Britpop thing...They were much better than all that...Would love to see one of the reunion gigs...

Very excited to have splurged (on my budget) for a ticket to see Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band at the end of the month at Madison Square Garden. Not just due to cost, but I think I am completely over the big arena shows, but this is Bob's farewell tour and I was not going to miss it. I'm a huge fan, but my previous times seeing him have always been marred by one thing or another that prevented full scale enjoyment. So I actually bought myself, and only myself a ticket so I can just go and have no distractions and enjoy the farewell on my own terms.

What they are billing as Gerry Hell at Ulverston Coronation Hall an evening of music featuring the music with Merry Hell and Gerry Colvin, I am guessing it will be very different to the JIgdoll Ensemble gig I saw at the same venue on thursday but hopefully as good.

Thursday night, the 2019 Austin City Limits Hall of Fame ceremony at ACL Live!

The inductees are:  Lyle Lovett, Shawn Colvin, and Buddy Guy.  

The host is Robert Earl Keen, and performers include Jackson Browne, Shemekia Copeland, Jimmie Vaughan, Bruce Hornsby, Sarah Jarosz, Willis Alan Ramsey & Christone ďKingfishĒ Ingram.

I had never heard of Kingfish Ingram, but after reading his bio I'm looking forward to the discovery.

I have happy memories of this venue...I saw an awesome and very rocking Patti Smith gig there back in 2007, the night after she'd played at Kendal, equally awesome although very different (supposedly acoustic, it wasn't).

Was a lot of fun, was seating at tables....i am glad there wasnt a fire, but it would probably have been better all standing like the Patti Smith concert (though maybe not for the age of the audience, my parents wouldn't have appreciated it) I also need to get use to Gerry Colvin, he came across too eager to please (not usually a bad) and either there were in jokes or I have a different sence of humour. Merry Hell a pitch perfect live act, to me but strangely still haven't bought any of their albums, just have my Up the Shirkers and Shandyland - Tansads cds
As for the Patti Smith gig in 2007, I might have mentioned it before, but the night had a bad vibe for me, the band were great but I didn't warm to Patti recounting her childish antics at the Wordsworth museum, being part of the reason, seemed a bit photofit rebel to me.. Though Bettye Lavette the week prior was absolutely brilliant.

Tonight at the intimate Cactus Cafe, in the student union at the University of Texas -

Shawn Phillips.

I confess I had never heard of SP before I saw this show listed.  I looked at some old Youtube videos of him on the Midnight Special, and read his online hagio -- I mean biography.  He claims to be an associate of Donovan, the Beatles, Eric Clapton, etc., and to have been offered the role of Jesus in JCS on Broadway circa 1970.

Seems to be a very accomplished player and singer based on the videos, in spite of his apparent obscurity.  Should I?

After much umming and ahhing I finally bought a ticket to see Al Stewart in Basingstoke tomorrow night. †From the videos going round on FB, it looks like he's doing some unusual numbers on this tour, and also some new songs. †He's playing with an electric band too, which will be different from the last few concerts I've seen which have been mainly acoustic.


We're seeing him tonight, really looking forward to it. You're lucky there were tickets, ours sold out weeks ago.


Disappointingly (except that it meant I was able to get a good seat at the last minute), Basingstoke was only half full.  Hope you had a good night.

Going to see Rowan Rheingans : Dispatches on the Red Dress at the Nuffield Theatre at Lancaster University tonight 8th of November 2019 20:00pm, was going to cycle from Lancaster Station but have decided to walk, could be interesting catching the last train back to Barrow after it finishes. The show has got some brilliant reviews and after seeing the Rheingans Sisters at More Music at Morecambe for the first time a short while ago, I think it will be brilliant.

I shall be going The Hexagon gig too.

It is the longest I've ever held tickets for a concert - tickets were sent to me on 8th October 2018. Over 400 days.

(However that record is already set to be broken. I have tickets to see This Is The Kit at the RAH in April Ö 2021! †:o )

Tonight, future Rock and Roll Hall-of-Famers The Doobie Brothers, at ACL Live!

This is a benefit concert for the Darrell K. Royal Alzheimer's Research Fund, which means the floor will be populated with disinterested spectators wearing tuxedos, seated at banquet tables. It also means a truncated concert, probably about 1 hour and 15 minutes. These folks have to get back to their limousines before they turn back into pumpkins.

We peons (a.k.a., true Doobie Brothers fans) will be rocking out in the balcony.  

Feeling like a class warrior today! :)

Was supposed to be seeing Frigg tonght at Nettlebed, but their tour has been cancelled.  So the club organisers have thrown together at very short notice a replacement concert - we're expecting a short Chris Leslie solo set, and a kind of reduced Feast of Fiddles, with probably some surprises as well.

Last minute decision to go and see Hawkwind in Guildford on Monday.  I always think Tim B adds a lot to the mix so wanted to catch them again whilst he's visiting.  3 of my old 6th form chums who I first saw them with (Portsmouth, in '84) going to be there too.  Looking forward to it  :)

While shopping for Steve Hackett tickets yesterday, I also nabbed a seat for Goldfrapp at the same venue.

There were about thirty tickets left for Steve which had gone on sale that morning, and I got the last seat in the stalls for Goldfrapp which had been on sale for quite a few days. I thought it interesting that an old fogey could sell tickets faster than a hip young thing, and then realised that Felt Mountain..the album the Goldfrapp tour is celebrating..came out in 2000, and then got lost in the '20 years before punk was Elvis' what happened to music in the last 20 years ?' mind wander I get stuck in every now and then.

Still...I got tickets, so Yay.

Ian McNabb and Cold Shoulder at The Arts Club, Liverpool on Saturday. A bit of a rarity these days to see Ian in solo mode with a band (as opposed to when he goes out as The Icicle Works), I think it must be five or six years since he last toured with Cold Shoulder. He's promising a two hour show drawing from the three albums they've done together, so this will be the first time to hear a lot of the wonderful Our Future in Space album in full-band mode. Should have been part of a slightly larger number of shows but most were pulled after a fall out with the promoter, so Liverpool is all that remains sadly. Make sure we take the ear plugs for this one, it's going to be loud. :D

The circumstances weren't great but the cancellation of the rest of the tour may have been a blessing in disguise as Ian subsequently went down with a nasty bout of, I think, bronchitis which he has only recently recovered from. Have a great night. I have seen Ian half a dozen times in the last two or three years, with and without a band and he has been on top form every time. He seems to have got passed the drunken falling about on stage phase from a few years back.

Richard Shindell Ė tonight at Cecil Sharp House.




He sold out before I realized he was playing, in my neck of the woods. Curses!

St Agnes Fountain tonight at Acapela in Pentyrch near Cardiff, my first time seeing them.

I note Liverpool are playing Everton at 6.30 and the show starts at 8 so Mr Hughes may or may not be a bit agitated!


Kick off is 2015. Hope you have a lovely evening, and Mr Hughes too, at least until he hears the final score...  ;)

Last show of 2019:

Cher, at the AT&T Center in lovely San Antonio, Texas, December 17!

She's been on my bucket list since she blanketed my television in the 1970s, first with Sonny Bono and later with Gregory Allman. She cancelled a scheduled appearance in Austin a couple of years ago, and I feared the opportunity had passed. After a lengthy period of recuperation, she has come roaring back! †I anticipate a little "I Got You, Babe," perhaps "The Beat Goes On," maybe the politically incorrect "Gypsys, Tramps and Thieves," a snippet of "If I Could Turn Back Time," some autotuned "Believe," and a whole lotta ABBA. ;)

Albion Christmas Band at the Atkinson in Southport a week from tonight. Looking forward to it, even though it means missing the 'Strictly' final! We'll have to remain incommunicado on Sunday and watch the recording.

There was an amusing little interview with Jah Wobble on Talksport (2.30 pm, will be available on their playback).  Partly about footie, of course (he is a Spud), but there were some interesting musical nuggets as well.  There is a tour in the offing, starting at The Cavern.

Jah  Wobble & The Invaders of the Heart are playing Colchester Arts Centre on 25 January but this is already sold out so Iíve missed out on that one  :-[ but itís the day before Frank Turner plays an acoustic gig in aid of the Nick Alexander Memorial Trust. He was heavily involved with the Arts Centre but lost his life at the Bataclan terrorist attack in Paris. The date of Frankís gig wouldíve been Nickís 40th birthday RIP
