I tend to change my Avatar , a lot , most of the time it`s what Mood I`m in . And Amadeus has a lot to do with it .
and try to explain why Jess has a bandage on her right wrist ? !
Awe,,,, that's sweet,,,,,
and the bandage? I believe it was the style in those days.
This new album is marvelous. Mrs. A has it on regular rotation now.
Friend: My favorite Beatles song is Band On The Run.
Me: It's not a Beatles song.
Friend: Wot! That guy, that guy, Paul McCartney sings it right?
Friend: Alright! That one is my favorite Beatle song.
So Mr Kite, where exactly do they clock in for your favorite bands?
For me to answer that we`d have to go to a pub , have a pint and a packet of peanuts and then I could give you ...An answer .
But you live a couple of thousand miles away , so I`ll try and give an answer .
They are my new favourite band .
Do I like them more than Led Zeppelin ? Well Zep hav`nt had any new material since 1979 ( Coda was unreleased stuff) and not toured since ...1979 .
When you have listened to a band since 1978 ish and over the next 25 odd years you hav`nt heard anything new your going to be looking out for new bands ar`nt you ? now the other thing is that I love Gigs . How many bands I`m into tour these days? I can tell you . Not many . And when they do , E.L.O. for example , a band I have never seen and waited almost 40 years to see charge a fortune to sit at the very back row. Then we have those are just to old and there voices have seen better days Check out Geddy Lees voice live and as good as the band are it`s not pretty .
So anyway , you get the idea now that I have always have looked out for bands that not only release new material but also tour . A lot , and don`t charge an absolute fortune and play smaller Gigs which over the years have become my fav place to see a band .
So 3 years ago or so my mate who knows a Promoter of a hell of a lot of new bands gets to see more Gigs than a bouncer He tells me of this band that are right up my Avenue Now apart from lovin Rock music I adore blues and folk stuff . I hear this bands new album and it`s bluesy folkie stuff . Absolutely loved it . I tells him . "I absolutely love it " "They are playin Hebdon Bridge next month you wanna go ?" he says . Absolutely .
And that`s how I got into this band . Do I like them more than Pink Floyd ? Maybe not , but I`m not going seeing Floyd on Wednesday night .
