First track sounds a bit ELO ish, nice though

Never really noticed that before but yep i can see that now.

Last song is very Queen-ish too

Of course i was never really a fan of ELO back then but am now.

The singer / Guitarist went on to join ELO in 90's

I've never heard of this band before today - that track is simply jaw dropping in its complexity and shape-shifting throughout the song - yet it's also got a massive groove and is absolutely the tightest thing. I've listened to it about 10 times today and I keep discovering more secrets.

Good detective work Frank Blank, I'll check this gig out.

Yep, very good, grooves like a mutha!
Drummer played with AWB, and the guitar player sounds a wee bit Wayne Krantz before he really takes off. Most excellent beat combo.

Steve Brodsky and Marissa Nadler have just released two covers from when they did their Droneflowet collaboration earlier this year - Phil Collins Something In The Air Tonight and Extreme's More Than Words.

Really like them, particularly the Phil Collins one

Been revisiting Jamiroquai’s ‘Energency on planet Earth’ this week with Stuart Zender and Andrew Levy sharing bass duties. Awesome, awesome stuff.

Not listening yet... but I just paid £46(!!!) for the limited Edition Black Sabbath Live at Hammersmith Odeon CD  on eBay.

I was there on Dec 31 1981, the first of the three gigs (also 1,2 Jan 82) combined to make the CD.

The first concert I saw at Hammersmith Odeon, afterwards with my g/f we went to Trafalgar Square and we missed the last tube back to Chessington.

Do have some sympathy for the guy who bidded it up to £45 from 50p... but not a lot 🙂

Just listened to 'Rule The World' by Take That. I have to work out a suitable bass line for an instrumental and also a vocal version for my quartet of sax, trumpet, rhythm & bass.

The original seems very well produced and multi-layered and not much help as our arrangement will be very different obviously. This happens with a lot of tunes we do.

Run with the Fox by Chris Squire on radio 2 this morning. Great song. That bass sound still sends shivers down my spine. RIP Chris.

any of you peeps partial to a bit of John Scofield's Uberjam stuff? , very funky jazz-blues-rock - and a bit of kitchen sink . Here's the first track of the third Uberjam Deux platter. 

Guy called Adam Hess laying down some bubbling low end throughout the album and locks in perfectly with top drum work

As I posted, on Facebook, a photo of a couple of Watership Down related badges. A mate suggested listening to Fall of Efrafa.

So I am...

Level 42 live at Brixton 1983. Really enjoying it. I really liked the double-Gould version of the band.

A couple of weeks ago I had a very fortuitous suggestion from my tablet while surfing youtube at some ungodly hour before work.  I stumbled across a Polish band called Riverside. This will be old news to many, I'm sure. However, I found them to be right up my street... if I had to liken them to other bands, I would say that it's like Tool, Porcupine Tree and Pink Floyd had a baby. That might not all be apparent from one track, but there is a great whole gig to be had if anyone is interested. Suffice it to say, I've ordered their back catalogue for myself....

Top tune 🙂

 

Hopefully Samsara will be backing up Steel Pulse in Brighton and The Abyssinians, also in Brighton. Not a band I’d like to go on after as they manage to get the coldest audiences in a big fat groove within a few bars. Brilliant band.

Essentially if a reggae band is headline in Brighton Samsara are invariably backing up, sadly they are f****** hopeless at communicating with their fan base. However I have a South Coast Samsara insider so I’ll give you a heads up if I hear anything Sir.
