Sorry sort of messed up my previous post re quotes etc but SLF awesome! First saw them way back in 1980. Rank up there as one of my fave punk bands (well back in Inflammable Material days at least)


Aye, and they'd sell tickets as well. The fanbase is fairly committed. They are a much bigger draw than (the wonderful) Buzzcocks, the other punks to play Croppers.

Last couple of albums were a return to form. But there could be swearing and there will be politics, probably a step too far for the organisers.


Yeah you’re probably right but thanks for the heads up on their last couple of albums. I think I’ll suss them out. Cheers   Smiley


Guitar and Drum (2002 I think) and No Going Back (2014 - well, nobody claimed they were prolific) are the last two. They play songs from both in their live show, but the bulk of it is made up from the first three they did. I'm always surprised, and pleased, by all the young 'uns watching them, and they all seem to know the lyrics better than I do too.  Grin  


Good songs are easy to remember  Grin Thanks again Albie

If I might say we are a bit off topic for FISH?

Last time he played he did the "two hits" Kayleigh and Lavender which were singles from the album Misplaced and this time he did the one single Incommunicado from the album Clutching at Straws so to suggest he did not play the known songs is a bit mean for an artist not known for a large singles output even in the days when he was with a record label supported band. Plus he did exactly what he said he was going to do i.e. Clutching at Straws plus some other stuff...

He was not a headline artist and whilst he might have a certain draw could in no way be presumed to bring a crowd in the same way as most of the other non headline artists on the lineup.  I would probably pawn a limb to see the likes of an Alice Cooper or Robert Plant but I will also come to a festival like Cropredy for the opportunity to see good acts having a chance to show what they can do on a big stage and then see some of them shine.  Aside from Richard Thomson last year the best acts I have seen at Cropredy have been on early afternoons on Friday or Saturday and not the headliners

The lineup might not have worked for you this year but I can see the logic - Brian Wilson - If not this time then probably never? The Levellers - well why not but the acoustic set maybe didn't do it?  I don't think the headline choices were bad in principle maybe just didn't work on the night as well as expected.  The festival certainly didn't seem noticeably down on numbers in the field compared with say 2015/16 so the lineup can't have been that far off.

I thoroughly enjoyed Fish’s set and knew everything he played, as did everyone around me at the front. If you are not a fan you are not going to know the songs. Last time Fish was on he did Misplaced Childhood in its entirety, so you got Kayleigh and Lavender.
This year the focus was on Clutching at Straws therefore you didn’t get them.
It reminds me of seeing Lindisfarne a few years ago. They played just about everything anyone could hope for. When they finished I heard someone say “That was rubbish, they only played two songs I knew”. Well, if you only know two songs you will never hear more than two that you know!

Whatever artist, yes thats the way it is. Cool Cool

OK for me as background whilst I ambled the field.
He seemed to really ‘get’ the idea of Cropredy so I’ll forgive him most things. He put his heart into ‘Solo’, whether you liked his version or not. I enjoyed his passion for the song.
