Eek! 

In all the rundown to the session for Rocker’s October programme on Dandelion Radio, I see I forgot to say a big “thanks” for his playing “St Elizabeth Of Hungary” as a teaser in the September show. 

All now up there on Mixcloud, and excellent as always!! 

Appreciated, Rocker…

Beau in session - Dandelion Radio...

Don’t miss Rocker’s October show on Dandelion Radio!

To commemorate ten years since John Peel’s untimely death, throughout this month Rocker is playing the session we recorded at his StAR Studio in Bristol back in July.

I chose six favourite songs from the “Edge Of The Dark” and “Fables & Fa├žades” albums. Most are straight-off-the-bat live first takes

Important to say; these are not just re-recordings of the originals. They’re complete reworkings for voice and twelve-string of pieces that have only ever previously been heard in a “band” context.

Wherever you are in the world, join us and enjoy!

It’s a great playlist and now Mixclouded, so do check it out!

And apologies for being so slow, Dianelos!

Links to this post No comments:
It’s great to be able to announce Guerssen Records in Spain are bringing out a heavyweight vinyl release of “Creation” in January/February next year!

This promises to be a really great package. There’ll be bonus tracks included, and I’ve been asked to write the notes for a sleeve insert.

Exciting stuff and much more to come, Watch this space...

Unreleased "Rhythm's Son" on "ED SESSIONS SPECIAL"...

Links to this post No comments:
If you didn’t catch Flat Ed’s annual “ED SESSIONS SPECIAL” broadcast last night (shame on you!), the whole show is now up there on Mixcloud.

And what a great show it is! All unreleased and in many cases unheard material. I contributed a piece called “Rhythm’s Son”. It’s a full-band item recorded back in 1980 but this is the first time it’s seen light of day. A bit Beatle-ish (think “Across The Universe” era), but I guess that’s no bad thing.

Ed played “Rhythm’s Son” in the first fifteen minutes, but do check out the whole programme. It’s superb!
