A lovely performance, both witty and emotional.  It was Pete’s first gig since Clive James’ death and he spent some time paying tribute to their lifelong collaboration, describing how they met and started performing together.  As usual, one of the delights of the show was hearing about the original inspiration for some of the songs.  A very civilized venue, too, with a couple of interesting musical associations.

Off to a new venue for me tomorrow night...Pizza Express in Holborn! Going to see Wilson & Wakeman again as I was very impressed by their performance at Cropredy last year. Apparently it’s set up a bit like a ‘live lounge/supper club’ so should be OK....

We’re off to see them on Wednesday at Acapela Studios near Cardiff where they serve pizza so should have a similar evening to you!

I'd intended to go to one of these, but then forgot about it.  Let me know...I'm a big fan of Jeff's playing, especially with the Croz.

Going to see Rowan Rheingans - Dispatches on the Red Dress, again, it was a moving musical highlight last year. This time I am going to Carraigeworks Leeds on the 22nd of March I am going with my 70 odd year old mother in law, she says it is her first ever folk gig, and I am sure it will be a good one. I am still going through medical things and despite my growing frustration with my progress, I now would like them to wait so I know I can attend this  Wink

Heather Findlay, Girlschool, Beth Hart, Joanne Shaw Taylor and Goldfrapp in the upcoming months.

Hopefully tix for Steel Pulse, The 'other' Beat and, maybe, the Four Tops and The Temptations to come on pay day.

I loved it.  Pevar was my main reason for going and he certainly did not disappoint, but Greg was excellent too.  The band played for 90 minutes solid (virtually no chat).  A well-balanced set-list, with a good mix of plaintive ballads and up-tempo numbers.  They did not limit themselves to the Burritos’ back catalogue (they did a cracking version of ‘Wild Horses’) and the up-tempo numbers had more raw energy than anything I remember hearing on FBB albums (I never heard them play live, sadly).  A very tight performance – the band sounded as if they had been playing together for years.  Well worth a punt, I’d say, if you get the chance.

Malcolm Bruce (son of Jack) has been fired from the Cream Experience: Disraeli Gears tour of the U.S. in spring 2020.

Bummed.  Angry  The trio of Malcolm, Kofi Baker and Will Johns was terrific when I saw them in 2018, and I still enjoy listening to the instant live recording that I purchased at the show.  Malcolm's and Will's voices blend nicely, Malcolm's got a jazzy bass style, and he sings very much like his dad.

It's hard to imagine how they could replace him with someone superior, let alone more authentic.

Randy Bachman and Burton Cummings (ex-Guess Who) are reuniting for dates in 2020!

No published dates yet, beyond a rumored booking at the Titans of Rock Festival in Grand Forks, British Columbia, August 6-8.

I'm very excited about this pairing. I have regretted for nigh on 20 years not seeing The [legitimate] Guess Who reunion tour in 2001, when they played San Antonio, Houston and Dallas over three consecutive nights and I missed all three bloody shows. The fake Guess Who continues to tour vigorously, with Guess Who original drummer Garry Peterson and a bunch of nameless, faceless side men. (Reminiscent of the situation with the Little River Band, and a handful of similar scams playing out across the planet.)

These guys aren't spring chickens, so this is probably a last chance deal.  I'll hop on a plane if I have to.

Laibach are playing a "home" gig in Ljubljana Castle 11 Sept. I wonder if I could persuade Mrs PT into a citybreak in one of our favourite places?

Now that would be fun.  Llubljana is wonderful, isn't it?  I spent a month there in 2007(doing a TEFL course).

Going to see Guida tomorrow night. They are an Italian punky version of The Sweet.

Expecting big things!

Just announced - new Roger Waters 2020 "This is Not a Drill" tour of North America!. Includes one stop in Dallas in October, so far.

I hope he adds more dates, and possibly finds his way to Austin this time. In any event, I must see him to make up for missing the "Us and Them" tour for no good reason...

We were there early July 2010 - a few days sightseeing and relaxing after Elly's Ironman tri in Austria. I had the best cappuccino I've ever tasted in the castle's cafe.

Back on topic - Fairport's Wintour opener at Tewkesbury next Wednesday is next on my agenda, unless a gig pops up over the weekend. I'd have gone to see Merry Hell in Worcester tonight, but we'll be in Cornwall visiting my sister.

Myself and MrsB are off up to Glasgow on Sunday to see Catrin Finch & Cimarrón and Dowally at the Old Fruitmarket as part of the Celtic Connections festival. I missed seeing Catrin when she played in Lancaster with Seckou Keita so I'm looking forward to this gig.

We're going to be away next week when the chaps start their winter tour though I see the Settle gig is sold out. I suppose Manchester is a possibility.

I spotted that Irmin Schmidt of Can is appearing at Celtic Connections... I'm struggling to find a celtic connection, maybe Irmin likes a wee dram now and then?

Can anyone tell me if the current incarnation of Gong is worth seeing? I’m not really that au fait with Gong but they are playing Colchester Arts Centre in October and wondered whether I should bother to go and see them? Thanks
