Post by: Andrew P on October 28, 2010, 02:06:49 PM
Seems there is a gig tonight in Bonn. Anyone going? I'm stuck in London tonight with an important meeting tomorrow, so that's me out. Await reviews with interest.

As we're still waiting for so much as an acknowledgement from the gig in Wales, I'm not going to hold my breath waiting for feedback from this one.

In fact, they've already done a gig on this mini tour - last Saturday, not that we would have known.

My point? I confess to being interested.

It's interesting that after a 5 or 6 night tour of Germany, there's not been one review. In fact it's hardly been discussed. It seems the Green Ray are more popular on this discussion board than the band it's been set up for..

well.. does it makes sense to post a review here? the way you ask, shows which way the wind blows.. be sure the band worked very well and we faced very solid shows last week.

The opinion that Martin Ace has killed the Man band is mine, and while there are many others that agree with me, there are also lots who still follow the band, and it is them you would be writing a review for..

Irrespective of the views held about the current 'Man', this is the most recognised of Man Boards, and surely with deference to this, and most important, the efforts Martin Ace knows Jules has put into this Board, should Martin Ace be arranging for the updating this board?

Maybe Jules would understandably prefer to be silent on the matter, but I would be interested to know if there is any dialogue between Jules and the present 'Man'. If so, is that dialogue not for prying eyes on the Board?

Martin has little more respect for Manfans, than he does for the Jones family, the bands legacy or the spirit of the Manband and its extended family. Is it really any surprise he cant be arsed to keep the fans in touch with what he is doing???

I'm sure I'll get a barrage of hate posts in response to this, but like it or not thats the way it is.

I'm glad Josh has decided to concentrate on Ringolevio. Hopefully finally this will be the end of the prostitution of the Man name.
Title: Re: Man tour of Germany 2010
Post by: Pete T on November 06, 2010, 02:02:31 AM
Gavin,

No barage of hate mails from me, I totally agree with your comments. However, I do feel that there is a support for this line-up within the manboard, and if they're happy with this charade, then let them get on with it, if that's what they want.

I'd love to see Ace kicked out, and a return to a Jones led Man, but it's for them to sort out. They know where we stand.

Meanwhile, let's wait for those reviews to come flooding in.. It's a week on now, and still nothing..

Like any bulletin board, the content here is provided by those people who have joined as members. No-one's obliged to post, and there are many who choose to simply observe rather than contribute. That's fine by me.

It's always great to hear opinions of gigs and releases, good, bad or indifferent. Over the years, many more shows have been played than have been reviewed. I'm pleased that MAN have put a brief run of shows together, albeit nowhere near where I could get to. Hopefully there'll be more shows later on that are more reachable. Anywhere in the UK would suit me. One observation I would make is that the set list seems pretty much the same as the last few shows, which implies that the songs being written and worked up aren't being showcased yet. I hope that moves on soon too.

I'm also hopeful that Josh and James achieve some success with Ringolevio. They deserve it. Shows being arranged at The Croft in Bristol (02/12) and The Dublin Castle, Camden Town 12/12 if you're in those areas at the right time.

...i'm at the least curious as to how this run of 4 shows back to back went ,and i wouldn't mind hearing some Phil solos on Bananas for one. and if i was there, since i rapped with Josh at the Micky tribute show and he was quite a nice dude(in fact he said if i was around for the day after the show that he would've been able to bring me some "smoke"; i hope he doesn't get into trouble with his Pop over this),i would ask him if i could sit in on Bananas(if you are reading this, peace Josh).everybody knows i'll play Bananas with anyone who'll have me.i'm easy that way.i couldn't bring myself to make an exception in this case...but i am really stuck in brooklyn this time.i can't even afford a haircut.i had to take in a roommate too.luckily it's Dougie and we had a good first practice for our gig tonight...i'm just curious as to how it went.i'm not trying to change fate(if there is such a thing)...now i hope you ruffians on the board aren't the reason the last show was cancelled...-peace-Davey

Title: Re: Man tour of Germany 2010
Post by: Nick Nation on November 06, 2010, 11:10:12 AM
I'm really pleased there's some bridge building going on.

Josh is a good songwriter, James is a great guitarist and will be even better once the Nationsounds Heavies have hidden his wah wah pedal for ten minute bursts. There's just not enough PP3 batteries to go round.

Ringolevio are pretty good. It would be great if they kept in touch with us, or at least told us when and where they are playing....possibly they are wary of some sort of backlash due to them playing in the current version of Man. Understandable, but I think most, if not all, regular Manboard contributors would wish them well.

....he would've been able to bring me some "smoke"....

Hmmm, definitely no backlash here. Your 'papers' are in order....

I suggest y'all go to http://www.myspace.com/ringoleviomusic (http://www.myspace.com/ringoleviomusic) right now. Don't expect it to sound like Man, but then lots of things don't.

Errrm....do I qualify for a free haircut now? Oh.

That would be just as wrong imo, and probably not the best thing for George.   He now has an opportunity to stamp his own name and personality on his new project - if you like, to become his own man.   I think he'd honour Micky even more by doing that without the need for this to be under the banner of the Manband.   He can honour and remember his father without the need to wear his overcoat.

In any event, my money is on the current Manband never making another substantial foray into the UK.

In my opinion, George was brilliant with Man, really coming into his own,  bringing in some of the old catalogue, and importantly being true to the spirit of the band. I actually think he ran the band!  However, and I mentioned this to George (and Tracy I think), years ago at Hebden Bridge, I wondered at his age and with his talent, rather than playing with Man, should he not be forging his own career. I hoped he did not misunderstand me, cos I love the fella,  but I said then I'm not sure if playing with Man would do George any favours.


Whereas the demise of Martin Ace et al would be most welcome, I would certainly not like to see George back in a Man line up.

A proposed council tax-evaluation policy will mean reassessment of current house values which will mean they will charge us more if we live in a nice area. That ought to mean discounts for those of us who live in rough areas.

There is a huge house in our street. The extended family is run by a grumpy old woman with a pack of irritable dogs allowed to run without leads. Her car isn't taxed or insured and doesn't even have a number plate, but the police still do nothing. To the best of my knowledge, she has never worked. Her bad-tempered old man is notorious for racist comments. A shopkeeper blamed him for arranging the murder of his son and his son's girl-friend, but nothing has been proved.

All their kids have broken marriages except the youngest, who everyone thought was gay. Two grandsons are meant to be in the Army but are always out partying in nightclubs. It is not known if they have the same father. They are out of control.


I hate living near Windsor Castle .

Just listened to Bees Make Honey's Tequila Sunrise. How much input did our Malc have with this band. (much easier to ask here, than go upstairs and search out Mannerisms (wouldn't it be great to have an updated electronic version on the desktop?))

I think it was mainly in a playing, rather than a writing capacity - certainly BMH didn't remind me of HY particularly. I don't think Malc played every gig.

...wouldn't it be great to have an updated electronic version on the desktop?

Yeah, but I don't think Broadband has got that far yet.

At last! A German review:

Germany is a federal parliamentary republic of sixteen states. The capital and largest city is Berlin. Germany is a member of the United Nations, NATO, the G8, the G20, and the OECD. It is a major power with the world's fourth largest economy by nominal GDP and the fifth largest by purchasing power parity. It is the second largest exporter and third largest importer of goods. In absolute terms, Germany allocates the third biggest annual development aid budget in the world, while its military expenditure ranked seventh.

The country has developed a very high standard of living and a comprehensive system of social security. It holds a key position in European affairs and maintains a multitude of close partnerships on a global level. Germany is recognised as a scientific and technological leader in several fields.


So there. I hope you all feel sorry for yourselves. Now then.

Depends, Joan, what you mean by "interesting".

I find this the rape of the name 'Man'.   It's bordering on offensive that with so many references to past incarnations of the Band, the way this current incarnation was formed, and that Martin Ace as leader cannot arrange for any news on the current Man by way of this website, which shows absolute disregard to those here who are interested, and to Jules himself (although maybe Jules is aware).   
Maybe Pete's words, probably meant innocently, but I think rings true "....photos of his band..."

Nor Deke of course, but let's not confuse royalty payments with merch sales.

Any one of us could bung in an order for a box of CDs and flog 'em for whatever we want. Plenty on eBay are doing precisely that. There's even a big online trader making a mint out of it, something to do with a south American river I think.

True, but...........and there is a big but....

When cd's are bought from voicepants, esoteric etc the band then sell it on the road and pay back the cost of the cd and keep the profit. The band are supposed to get a royalty from the cost of the cd.

My problem is that dad is not recieving his share of the profit that is made on the road.

Hey, is this a new game where we mix posts up in different threads? Brilliant idea. It's like anarchy for 50+ year olds.

Anyway, your Mr O.O. Pritchard is moonlighting, I'll have you know. O.O. Pritchard's main job is making subbuteo football players. He works alongside his brother, Mr N.N. Pritchard, who makes the goals.

If you imagine a meter or dial that measures prog cosmic energy then I think many of you would agree the Space Ritual Alive    Back into the future  album (Dec 1972) rates 10 or near. On the same scale, Knights of Space (Dec 2007)  Kin.. (what's it called?) rates around  - 2.

One could argue that the recent history of Hawkwind Man consists solely of plodding their way out of  deeper into that trough, the 2007 nadir. Spring 201008 saw track lengths  the band expand  explode with a tad more blanga success than any previous atempt . A steady but not meteoric improvement  decline for the last three years decades .

So, has the recovery stalled, or are the guys still in search of space deep shit ?

At Bristol (14 Dec) Germany the dancers did their usual good performance with an array of costumes, and the lightshow was the now-customary colour floods and patterns and images on the central backdrop. Still no strobes or lasers for the 21st century! ...?

Musically, the Bristol show suggested they maybe haven't quite max'd out yet. The style was very similar to Cardiff (30 Apr) but the return of "You Shouldn't Do That" and "Brainstorm" as book-ends for the main set gave this show a slight edge over Cardiff. The involvement of John Sevink on violin was also a plus point. However, I felt the show considerably lost momentum near the end, with "Tide of the Century," "Wraith" and "Song for a New Age" forming a near-20-minute quiet spell before "Brainstorm" came to the rescue. I'm all for Tim Blake   Martin Ace stuff in a Hawkwind  Man  show, but it's probably best done around mid-set  either before anyone turns up, or after they've left...

Lindsay,

Welcome to the Man board. You'll find us a pretty freindly bunch most of the time (until Martin Ace is mentioned). Jules has set up an introduction page somewhere, where we introduce ourselves to the rest of the board.

Perhaps you could tell us a little bit about yourself, and how you were first introduced to the Man band..

Have fun,

Best wishes,

Dan S

Just looking out of my window. The sky is blue, the birds are singing, and an angel on a fluffy white cloud is playing a harpsichord. Behind the angel is an old bloke, white hair, white beard, dressed in white, and is holding a placard saying 'I am God, you can believe in me now'. (Good job cos I thought it was Mr Leonard at first).

Hope I'm nt adding 2 + 2 and getting 5.

President Barack Obama visits a Glasgow hospital. He enters a ward full of patients. He greets one. The patient replies:
 
Fair fa' your honest sonsie face,
Great chieftain o' the puddin race,
Aboon them a' ye take yer place,
Painch, tripe or thairm,
As langs my airm.

Obama is confused, so he just grins and moves on to the next patient, who responds:
 
Some hae meat an canna eat,
And some wad eat that want it,
But we hae meat an' we can eat,
So let the Lord be thankit.
 
Even more confused, and his grin now rictus like, the President moves onto the next patient, who immediately begins
to chant:
 
Wee sleekit, cowerin', timorous beastie,
O the panic in thy breastie,
Thou needna start awa' sae hasty,
Wi' bickering brattle.
 
Now seriously troubled, Obama turns to the accompanying doctor and asks, 'Is this a psychiatric ward?'
 
‘No’ replies the doctor....‘this is the serious Burns unit'.

A very interesting fact for everybody. At BFC, in recent years, we have had two Pugh's, a Barney, and a Dibble playing for us.

4 out of 6 isn't a bad ratio is it?

Back in the 1980's, Southampton had a centre half pairing of Holmes and Watson, and famously Charlton Athletic had a striking pair of Flanagan and Allen around the same time. They spent a lot of time "Strollin', just strollin'"!!!!!
