The Baring-Gould evening sounds good - thanks for the hint to go and look at Jim's website. We live very close now to the area where SBG was squarson (his old home was a very fancy hotel/restaurant, which has just gone bust!).


Just got back. Terrific evening. Jim Causley & Miranda Sykes were as excellent as ever, and John Palmer, who shared anecdotes and read some of SBG's stories, did so with a real passion for his subject. I went for the music but left feeling the need to properly explore SBG's work. Job done by the performers!

If you get the chance to catch a performance, I hope you enjoy it!


I really enjoy Jim's singing, a really wonderful voice and an engaging performer live. I didn't know this tour was happening and pleased to see so many dates, especially SW which is understandable. Thanks for sharing, looking forward to catching a live gig.


Agreed. He's always worth catching in concert. Hope you get a chance to see the Baring-Gould show.

Jah Wobble and The Invaders of the Heart playing "Metal Box Rebuilt In Dub" at The Exchange in Bristol on Thursday night, augmented by Jon Klein (ex-Banshees) filling the Keith Leven guitar role.  All five players are fine musicians and they didn't disappoint. As well as the Metal Box album, we also heard two songs from PiL's first album: "Public Image" and "Fodderstompf".  

A compact and bijou venue, ideal for Wobble's bass to be felt as well as heard - the only other bands I've experienced live with such a full bass sound were Aswad (open-air gig on St George's Plateau in Liverpool) and Can (at the old boxing stadium in Liverpool).  

So glad I now wear "Hearos" earplugs to most gigs - they cut out the high-frequency distortion that used to leave my ears "ringing" until the following day.

On the bright side small festivals and day events seem to be proliferating all over the place.

The trouble with keeping chasing the money (£300 a ticket?) is that the customer is ever more likely to demand more (better services, options etc.) and complain loudly and bitterly when there's something they don't like (i.e. the lineup).  This same scenario is being played out in a large number of capitalistic markets.  What tends to happen is you end up with just the big boys (Glasto, Reading/Leeds etc.) and a few tiny niche players.  The vast majority of the middle-sized players will disappear...  I've said this before but my own personal opinion is that if Cropredy is to survive it needs to go small, go folk-rock, go niche. Day and a half.  3-5000 people.  Economies of scale.  Bring it all back round again... [I'm fully aware this will never happen].
