With and without visuals

My 1st listen to Rick Miller, (his 2020 release) prompted by a series of strong reviews by Kev Rowland, who I usually find to be a reliable source for my ears.

This doesn’t do it for me - bit dirgy and one paced with vocals that cover about 3 notes and that’s yer lot. (I exaggerate of course but you get the picture.)

Finnish band Nightwish’s 2020 release.

Kev R playfully suggests it may be the birth of a new sub genre - progressive symphonic folk metal anyone?

After 3 plays over the last couple of months, definitely growing on me.

Taken from Finnish band Kingston Wall’s 2nd album released in 1993.

I’ve popped them on here before - if you’ve not heard them before, do give this a go. I think it is terrific.

It had to be done!

[That's David Byron by the way - I didn't know that until this week!]

My school mate Johnny Winter had a habit of buying albums as soon as they came out , playing them once, not liking them and then selling them to me dirt cheap.

It certainly worked for me.

This was one of those said purchases back in the day!

I also recall Strawbs Antiques & Curios and Renaissance's eponymous debut

Anyway, NP

A monster of a debut






RIP John

Russian band’s new release - out of interest and just because....

It’s ok actually.

Agreed.The next one, Sonic Attack, was a disappointment

Back where it all began

Chatting to Nic Turner in the queue and having no idea who he or Hawkwind were

[Described in Melody Maker the following week as a new band that sounded like 'Pink Floyd on acid']

Oh Man, what a great and unique album, even taking as it does, Ummagumma era Floyd as its inspiration.

Not great musicians, but there was a great, ahem, chemistry.

Anything with Guthrie Govan is worth listening to.

Always loved this Cranberries song and this is an outstanding cover.

Her vocal problems have changed her style completely. She is now a rock singer. I shall watch her development with interest now.

Ah, it’s Monday morning and I’ve just back from walking the dog down to the beach. Not nearly as wild as yesterday, but there is a beached yacht that broke free from its mooring, with its owner stood by scratching his head: I bid a hasty retreat. My wife’s working on the computer keeping me in the manner I’ve become accustomed to. So what to do? Oh yes, put on the headphones and bliss out to one of my very favourite Hawkwind albums, Astounding Sounds, Amazing Music.

So, Fuck Covid, there’s lots of music to be listened to. Safe in the 1970s.

I saw them on this tour with a couple of BCBers

Absolutely stunning - Rob's voice is still stunning.

I had a nice brief few words with him in the bog during the interval

One of those bands that has aged terribly. Pleasant enough tunes but it just seems so weak and somehow irritating.

Shame, I enjoyed them back in the day.
