I was recently in Copenhagen hob nobbing with the likes of Bob8 and at the airport after we went through customs was a guy with a sign (like they do) with MTCH written on it. Either he was on a low budget advertising campaign or they were arriving there for a gig. I too thought they had sacked it.

Just came across an old 80's thing on YT. Gene Loves Gezebel - Motion of Love

 

 

I don't think this was a hit as such but I was going out with a Gothy type girl at the time (summer 1986) and she was well into it. Wow- only music can bring such strong memories...

Just pre-ordered this - Todd Rundgren at the BBC - but am slightly disturbed by the "Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought" section.  :O

Kylie's stuff is absolutely brilliant, not that her being half Welsh has clouded my judgement.

...but she operates at something of a stylistic tangent to Todd, you must admit.

 I don't really know much about Todd Rundgren's music apart from I Saw the Light, which is a classic track.

 

However, it's a fairly safe bet that most male music buffs of my generation would prefer to get into Kylie than Todd.

I saw Todd Rundgren at Knebworth in 1976.

 

Can't remember a thing about it.

Got my hat trick on the Chain on Radcliffe & Maconie last Monday with this

 

 

Wonderful song, and when I showed my mate the video last year he went

Guitar hero time! Leslie West at 'Night of the Guitars', dedicating a Jack Bruce song to Felix Pappalardi, bassist and occasional vocalist for Mountain.

The wonderful Albert Lee in Saltaire last night.

 

Indescribably good.


And when they found our shadows
Grouped around the TV sets
They ran down every lead
They repeated every test
They checked out all the data on their lists
And then the alien anthropologists
Admitted they were still perplexed
But on eliminating every other reason
For our sad demise
They logged the only explanation left
This species has amused itself to death
No tears to cry no feelings left
This species has amused itself to death

Albert's a great technician but I've often thought his playing lacks soul! He's the country equivalent of all those terribly tedious Metal guitar players like Eddie Van Halen. I'd still stand watching open mouthed mind!

I saw him with Bill Wyman's band not so long ago. He was having a ball. It was a very good night.

I'm going to down Johnny Winter's new and last album in a bit

I had the same feeling about Carlos Santana in 1977ish.

Which is pretty much what I did for two hours last night.

 

Thing about Albert is that he is extremely versatile as well as technically brilliant. Over the years I've seen him with Clapton, the Everlys, Rhythm Kings and Hogan's Heroes, and he always looks supremely comfortable and to be having a great time. At 70 his powers seem undiminished, long may he continue.

I mentioned to some friends last night that Albert Lee was playing at Saltaire. They'd never heard of him. I said he used to play with  Emmylou Harris and they'd never heard of her either.

 

Mind you, it's only tonight that I've learnt that he played with Clapton.

Albert's always been a bit under the radar because he hasn't had a hugely successful solo career. Rolling Stone magazine even managed to omit him from their top 100 guitarists, probably because the idiots who write it also hadn't heard of him.

 

He's known as the guitarist's guitarist, revered by the host of more famous players he's performed and recorded with over the past fifty-odd years. What he was doing playing a tiny social club in Saltaire I have no idea, I guess he just loves gigging.

There are some altogether curious choices in that top 100. Pete Townsend at number 10? Lou Reed, really?

Edit - meant to say what a talent the lead vocalist/violinist is, that's got to be quite unusual.
