Hello all - I've just booked to see the chaps in Hertford on 24 October but can see that gig listed anywhere, including the FC website. Is it a one-off?

Alas no - they put a great show there a couple of years back. This is at the Hertford Theatre on 24 October

To be fair, one of the contestants thought 'he used to be in a band'.

They all had premature obituaries published, Stephen.  Mr Swarbrick's was, I believe, in the Telegraph.

Lengthy (8pp) article about Bruce Lacey in the October 2014 (Fripp on the cover) edition of The Wire magazine...

He's a one-off.

'twas bollox' is what Swarb wrote on a copy of his obituary when he signed it for me a few years ago  Grin

Yesterday I happened to visit 2 shops and a restaurant in Muswell Hill. I also happened to be wearing a Cropredy T shirt (1992 as it happens). In all 3 there was somebody who commented and had been to Cropredy. Godd to see the Chaps so well known back where it all began.

Had to explain to a framer yesterday that the 2 small holes were where it used to hang on a Cropredy telegraph pole!
