Stick Men on Thursday in Bilston, Sun Raymond Arkestra in Brum 4th April, and possibly Jcm Band 12 April in Bilston... this is a blues/jazz/rock trio of Jon Hiseman, Clem Cleminson and Mark Clarke. Sounds very tasty!


Shoot me down in flames if I'm wrong, but surely that isn't the name of the band!

I quite like the idea of a random bloke called Raymond who fancies his hand at being a Sun Ra covers outfit.

Los Lobos - Auditorium Shores, Austin, Texas, tonight at 8:30 PM.

This is a free show sponsored by the City of Austin, tied in with the SXSW music festival which is presently in full swing.  Fun fact: Cropredy veterans and Georgia peaches Larkin Poe are playing all over town this week.  I may catch them while they're here.

I can literally step out the door of my office building, cross a bridge and arrive at the entrance to the festivities.  Did I mention it's free?

I may do this...

To add...I just found out that Los Super Seven are appearing before Los Lobos. Rick Trevino, Flaco Jiminez, Cesar Rosas, Steve Berlin, and "special guests" (presumably, David Hidalgo, hopefully others).  Smiley

P.S. - I still think Los Lobos would be a great headliner for Cropredy.  This is roots/Americana music at its finest.

I don't think I've ever heard anything by him. I know he seems to be the go to man for remasters and remixes in the field of rock.

He says he's a songwriter and producer, but OMG he is so much more than that. His music is a mix of rock, prog rock, thrash rock, pop, jazz, funk, goth, psych rock, ambient, more rock. He plays keyboards, guitar and bass and does all the singing, although he does have a few gutsy guest female vocalists.

I can (and do) listen to his music for days on end then I have to suddenly stop as it becomes an obsession. You might have guessed I'm a big fan!  Grin  He was amazing.

You've never heard any Porcupine Tree, Jim?  There's a huge amount of great music in there.  I really rate his more recent stuff too.  He's got a pop sensibility but presents it in a very interesting way...

Have I told you about the time I saw Porcupine Tree in a tiny venue in Canterbury with about 30 others?  Wink I was only there to see Richard Barbieri really... This was the Sky Moves Sideways time...happy days!

I’d never heard of them either until my work colleague revealed they were his favourite band!

Shepherd’s Bush, as a guest of a guest of the guitarist in PT, who’d both been in Mr. Fish’s band. Much swapping of on the road “Did he do that to you..?” anecdotes. Steve Hogarth was in the bar and Robert Fripp was supporting. All of this as wallpaper to that if the only thing Steven Wilson had ever done was ‘Lazarus’ he’d still be in my top ten guitarists of all time. Judging by the amount of work he gets through, he also appears to own one of this planet’s very few functioning time machines.

|It amazes me that he's not better known (to the general public), but I suspect he likes it like that.
Robert Fripp, eh?  Cheesy

This is the Kit in Chester on 4 July.  Looking forward to this.  There's a guy putting on some really good gigs in St Mary's.  Will definitely try and get to Roddy Woomble too...
