Lots of mentions for good chums and family, comment on politicians' failure, more fun than seriousness and tinctures for all...
I have a decent selection of all my old cassettes in a box in our shed The old double-player is tied to the roof, over the door, with pencilled instructions on FF, Play etc!
This week's preferred tape is this one...
All you need now is a Sony Walkman.
I'm on the case, Mr H!My iPod needs recharging every day, so may be out, butI do have a prtable CD player - but all I need are some CDs...
HiI love 70s prog as it often reminds me of a tima and place.Something you mat have missed as they never really made it despite being mentored by Bob Harris and support slots with yes (Their name did not help IMHO) Wally, have a listen i love this and there are other songs available such as Nez Pearcehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8rhUTu7hP-0Kind regards D3
Another often overlooked 70s prog band band I met a few times in the 70s / 80s backstage ater some stunning concerts (yhey really shook the ground live)The Enid, described as "Pink Floyd meets the Berlin Philharmonic"a massive back catalogue available online but this one is my favourite I thinkhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9CJmAE9ac_0
Wow! This is something completely new for me D3!I'm always one for prog rock anyway, but these have never crossed these 'ol eardrums!Thank you for the links!Hope all is well with you now at BBBC!
You are welcomeI was a rock promoter during the 80s and met some interesting bandsI have been deprived of my outlet at bbbbc have been banned for having the nerve to respond to being told the shut up, rather ironic considering..... and it was often a welcome outlet during lockdown I talk to myself a lot now...and the catWife is still laughing when I showed her Bidens choice for health Scretary, a fat man in a womans wig with more Chins than a Beiing telephone directoryKind regardsD3
Robert John Godfrey, leader of the Enid was an intersting characterI remember him lecturing the audience when introducing an environmental song he had written, a very big man with a massive beard, in is a publicly educated but very camp voice saying "The earth is telling us it is bedtime with no tea" and a gang of bikers in front of me just looking at eachother and shaking their heads
I'm sorry you don't post there any more D3. They let the trolls in for a shuftie on occasions, but there are lots of other posters there who can get quite 'deep and meaningful' too!Hows about getting another account, changing your monica, and starting again?(I tried it on Guido years ago, but back then, it didn't actually work, but times and IT have changed since then)!
HiI could do that but afraid I am very disappointed with two or three there and their attitude so do not want to be part of it, once one has a go a couple of others will join in all very childish even Taffman started on me saying "what has that got to do with the bbc?" once he saw the other two were having a go, good grief, I will leave them to it as it seems an echo chamber and independent thought with my silly senese of humour is not welcome Like a childrens playground at times with their nasty snipes still glad I met you and will keep in touch if you don't mindA
Interesting point about Robert John Godfrey too.A year or so ago, I had been doing some shed-work, (as this post suggests), and had a very old tape going of Barclay James Harvest playing 'Suicide'.Later that evening, I met some lovely friends for a Christmas party, and we were talking of this and that, as every one does when the wine flows! They are a little older than me by about four or five years (I'm 73), and we were chatting about concerts we'd been to over the years. Out of the blue, they mentioned BJH, and we sat around in mutual amazement, as they assumed probably correctly, that it wasn't a name on everyone's list but that they'd been attending concerts and buying the BJH music for ages and ages!I learned more about the great band they are, that night than ever before, including the fact that they always played 'Hymn' at every occason! If it wasn't for the bloody covids stopping the regular drinks sessions, we'd probably still be there...
The problem with RJG is he does not suffer fools gladly and upset so many record companies and others in the industry and fellow band members, they ended up putting out their own records and their own studios which limited their audience somewhat
I believe he is "semi retired" from the band but last I heard living in a "granny flat" within their commune they have their own website I will have to check
THE ENID - LIVE FROM THE BIJOU THEATREAnd Then There Were ThreeWith the current band members, the band has regained a stability not seen since the 1980s because of the brotherly love that binds us.Come walk with us. Plans are afoot, and there is much to do. As the end of my life draws nearer, I mean to leave the band's affairs in a good place for those who come after me.RJG
Another link : the Enid live 1984 saw them do a 30 miute version of this !https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MmPQAtZL6-I
That's a lot of listening D3 - thank you for the links!By all means stay here as long as you like! I do watch the other place as you know, mainly because we never watch any BBC at all, although we have a sizeable collection of DVDs from when they did real comedy! I just like to keep in touch in ways other than %rDead, although I have to admit that I like Dotun most of the time, Mark Webster and Jonathan Wingate are real music gurus on Thursday 1:00am onwards, and Chris Warburton is pretty fair as well, so it's not all bad I suppose, as the leftie stuff doesn't really have time to infuse the bulletins...Of course, if it does, I switch off!
Yes a but only one song there, other link is to their site, but ! forgot about this, if there is one thing to listen to which makes sense of my comment that they made the ground shake, please have a listen to this : live a Hammersmith Odeon fantastic !https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zW3JvsQaO9E
And when I said a little camp:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KosTzYSUYO4When RJG sang Wild Thing at the Stonehenge festival when he kept singing to the audience "What am I going to do with you you naughty naughty things ? bless your cotton socks"
That Hammersmith track is just fabulous D3! Will tell the chums!Never heard it before - back then, we were so strapped for cash that all LPs were banned from the house...(I did buy a copy of David Bedford's 'Instructions for angels' though, and still bear the scars - both mental and physical...)!
Thank you Scrobs! Dirt Farmer is a perfect album :)
I love it, Lils!The Band were 'earthy' enough, but this is superb!
