Other Bands - General Discussion / Re: The Pretty Things
« Last post by Tel on May 24, 2020, 03:01:44 PM »
I missed this one somehow. I should have realised as The Pretty Things started appearing in my YouTube recommendations.

Sad news but 75's not a bad innings. One of my mates is a big PT fan but I've not seen him for a couple of months - Boris won't let me.

RIP Phil, I shall have to dig out Parachute and Freeway Madness. I always liked those two albums but not listened for some time.

Other Bands - General Discussion / James Oliver - Award winner

Delighted to see that James Oliver has won the Emerging Artist award in the 2020 UK Blues polls.

All credit to the boy, a fabulous guitarist and one of the acts I've most enjoyed catching up with this year.

Having Man's Shane Dixon on drums didn't hurt either.

With great sadness I have just read about the passing of Phil May.
Only watched the Final Bow the other day too.

John was a thoroughly nice chap and fantastic bass player. He was so pleased to have joined Man, and told me he felt it was mainly Deke who pushed for his inclusion. It was his biggest gig so far at the time, and later went on to play with Steve Hillage. After that he played with many artists as Arjay mentions. RIP.

Arrived today!! Ordered yonks ago, possibly one of the first to pre order, but thanks to Jenny at Cherry Red for her help.

Only listened once. Obviously we have nods to Man with Conscience, and Drivin' Around in the last track.  But did I notice a few references to Deke in 'what the man says'?

Seen a lengthy thread on the Steve Hillage site including a great clip of John.
