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!

This Saturday, at Globe Life Park in Arlington, Texas: †Billy Joel!
Could you ask him to pop over to the UK and do a few gigs please, preferably one in Cardiff but anywhere would be good!

Enjoy  :)

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.)

Just to say, although I am not a local, I have been to a couple of St Edith events and the welcome is always warm. The venues are also lovely. I shall earmark Trad Arrr and Home Service for further visits. I just wish A Winter Union werecoming back this year. They were one of the highlights of my year in 2018.

Maybe Allan Taylor could show up at the the lads date and for old times sake perform Senile Delinquent with them?

Lyrics here.....second ones!

Wow! I'm going to have to plan 2020 around trips to Kemsing!
Always a lively vibe there, and some of my favourite bands.
Alan Taylor! Takes me back to my teens!

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...

Neither knew nor cared after their appalling Cropredy appearance.

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. I doubt my da will fall asleep at this one though, but that was his loss.
