  1. My band, Blind Deer played a low key gig at my local crown green bowling club (stop sniggering at the back or I will have to ask you to leave). first gig in absolutely ages so a bit flakey in places but seem to have got away with it. Highlights for me were:
    "from the beginning", Greg Lake (he wasn't there, he just wrote it)
    "lisbon", trad folk song rearranged
    "Desire lines", 16 bar jazzy tune wot I made up
    "Dinnis of Wyke" reggaeish song I wrote about the Halifax Gibbet

  2. Watched it until 12.05. I thought it was pants. Haim-didn't like. Ray Davies, overwhelmed by band or pissed, or both. Rudimental were just that and as for their featured vocalists, well don't get me started… Pipers were ok. Guess I'm just not down with the kids, if I ever was.


  3. One of the very first bands I saw. I was on holiday with with my parents in bournemouth ( I was 14 in 1968). one of my favourite albums at college was Thank Christ for the Bomb. I saw Tony McPhee in Otley a couple of years ago. He was dire.

    1) It's sounds sh*t compared to a guitar solo.

    2) Guitarists don't cop three John Coltrane licks and use them in every solo.

    3) Guitar soloists celebrate the range of possibilities of the guitar instead of the range of possibilities of three John Coltrane licks.

    Thanks for the heads up, someone had mentioned it on Facebook and I was wondering how the site was.
    I'll have a proper look when I get home this weekend.

    He says that this rate is for a few days only. Then it will go to full price. Get in quick.
    I joined up as I have probably had £36 worth of stuff that he distributes freely. I'm looking forward to it.


  6. A proper bash would be good. Look after yourself first though. I met TomDuff this afternoon, though it was very busy and the chances of bumping into people I didn't know would have been very slight. Hope to meet you at some point Gav

    Get well

    Paul

    Are we still up for this?
    Sunday 22nd Sept. I propose that we meet at 2pm behind the bandstand, on the top of the cafe(it'll make sense when you get there), Roberts Park, Saltaire. If you're coming by train, out of station, over canal and river into Roberts Park. There will be street food in Saltaire and opportunities to quaff ale. Is that ok with everyone? If so who will be coming?

    Not a terrific response so far
