I've just realised Martin Turner's Wishbone Ash are playing in Maesteg in a week or two.  I love early Ash, and think the current  official version of the band are as dull as ditchwater....am I likely to enjoy this lot?



 I was thinking of seeing them at the Beehive in Honiton on 13th April, but like you have never seen his current version of the band .

I would have thought so. I've seen them four times in the last four years I think, and they've always been excellent.
One year they did Argus in full, and they always play plenty from the the early days. And he always seems to be enjoying himself (and ditto for the rest of the band).

I saw them a couple of years ago playing an acoustic version of Argus and they were excellent.

I saw them on 24 March (brief review on Recent Gigs thread). They were excellent. The first half was the whole of the New England album, though not in order. The second half was a selection of material from across the classic years without overly heavily relying on Argus. I have seen Martin's band many times and this may be the best I have ever seen them. It takes his voice a few songs to warm up these days but in every other respect they were on fire and true to the sound and feel of the original band without taking themselves too seriously. I had a thoroughly enjoyable evening and definitely recommend you give them a go.

You just reminded me that I had seen that Martin Turner's Wishbone Ash were playing locally to me, so I just checked it out.  And it is this Friday, when I'll be on a plane home from Africa.  So close, but yet...

Thanks for the input.  I will consult my oracle (aka the cash point) and all being well will proceed with enthusiasm.

Three in one week, all at the historic Paramount Theater in downtown Austin:

4/14 - Craig Ferguson
4/17 - Joan Baez (Fare Thee Well Tour)
4/20 - Seth Meyers

Greatly looking forward to all three, especially since I can cross the legendary Ms. Baez off my bucket list.  Diamonds and Rust, indeed.

I remember being at cropredy in 1989 and overhearing a couple of fans dicussing Joan who insisted on pronouncing her name baize I think it might have been the same people who mentioned the great Fairport member Simon Nicholas

Difficult choice tomorrow. We have Steeleye Span at De Montfort Hall and Lavinia Blackwall and her new band Stilton at the Musician. I love Lavinia's voice so much, so that is where I'll be.

Off to see King Creosote at The Hall in Lancaster tomorrow. Despite the name, it's quite a small venue and will be packed as it's sold out. Last gig there was fellow Fence Collective member Pictish Trail.

On Saturday I may well be going along to see Dan Haywood and friends who are playing a benefit gig in town to raise money for JDRF as Simon, the bass player in Pill Fangs (one of Dan's bands), died earlier in the year due to complications to do with his diabetes.

The Fare Thee Well tour has been going on nearly as long as Elton's but that is a mark of the affection in which she is held by her audience. She was terrific at the Royal Albert Hall last year at the beginning of the tour. To all appearances she is still at the height of her powers even if her voice has deepened and coarsened a little (which I like). I have seen Joan many times over the last 35 years and she has been wonderful every time, especially when she was touring the Gone From Danger album with a band. It saddens me that I may never get the chance to see her again.

I would indeed be there (like a shot)...IF I wasn't going to see the Sleaford Mods at the, er, Live Rooms in, um, Chester the same night.  One can't do it all.  You show me yours and I'll show you mine (you might not enjoy that, I suspect)  Wink Smiley Grin

James Warren tonight in Shoreham, touring as The Korgis but actually, as I understand it, playing songs from The Korgis, Stackridge & his own solo repertoires. Looking forward to it.

Should be fun.  I miss Stackridge when they're not around.

I was a fan from the very early days and I miss them too.

The real Stackridge haven't been around since 2010 when Mutter left again. Warren and Davis staggered on until 2015, being the support band to themselves as the Korgis. The band name was formally retired in 2015 because Warren/Davis thought they'd make more money just as Korgis. Davis then left the band, I believe. Warren tours as "The Korgis - with James Warren", apparently.

Not entirely correct. As you say, Mutter left after the sublime A Victory for Common Sense album and a version of the band with Warren & Davis at the helm carried on until 2015. They were incidentally terrific live and I thoroughly recommend the CD and/or DVD of their final gig in December 2015 titled The Final Bow. They did indeed tour briefly as The Korgis in early 2015.  The fact of the matter is however that after best part of 45 years of an extremely fractious relationship (Davis sacked Warren from the original line up of Stackridge and walked away from The Korgis after their first album and again after their comeback album and has been described repeatedly by Waren as "difficult") they could barely stand to be in the same room as each other and decided to call a day, both intending to work in future with people who, at this time of their lives, did not cause so much interpersonal stress. Andy Davis's Emergency Love album is a complete triumph imho. I have not heard any of the DLM stuff. James's Innocent Bystander is patchier to my ears but sufficiently Korgis like that he decided to revive the band alongside one of the other original members John Baker.
