Man - General Discussion / Post Lockdown
« Last post by Arjayay on November 09, 2021, 12:03:07 AM »
As bands are beginning to tour again, I just wondered which bands people have seen, post-covid - and what their thoughts were.  I have seen:
John Lydon - not a gig, but a book promo chat - very honest, especially about his wife's Alzheimer's - and led the audience in singing ABBA !
Tom Robinson, on his "first gig since 2019" and, other than a minor gremlin with the electronics "comes from storing the amp in a garage for 2 years" excellent - the lay-off has improved his vocals
Wishbone Ash - a touchy subject to some Man-fans, but "Phoenix rising" was  excellent - and Mark Abrahams has made the sound "heavier" - I missed the name of the drummer who was standing-in because Joe Crabtree had Covid, but he was also very impressive. Andy Powell's vocals also seemed better than last time I saw them - again possibly because of the lay-off - and he is 71 now

Cheesy Classic rock, eh? Some contenders on Twang, surely? Woman, Chimes at Midnight, Fast and Dangerous.... even those latter day live staples, Chinese Cut and "Feather". Those proggers Jethro Tull came out with a song with a riff identical to Martin's dance of the Marsupials. So is this album streaking away down Hangar Straight ( with a nod to Rob W) as the cheesiest classic rock Man album ?

And for those of us who like our members of the Manband to be non cheesy, but deserving of McCartney-esque status as a writer, I'll be heading over to the Half Moon tomorrow, a month late to see him with Man, but just in time to see his solo gig.....

John, ( just ask Terry), then Ken - live versions with Ken and John show what they added to the mix. Live in London 1975 and Berkeley 1976.  We're lucky to have more of Ken's work with Help Yourself and the Green Ray....

Hello. At the moment I'm collecting all of the man releases on cd and I'm trying to collect all the esoteric releases. One I'm trying to get is the esoteric version of DYLIHN but the copies on sale on discog are a little pricy. I was having a look at a copy from austria but the listing is not there anymore. :-[ If anybody has a copy for a reasonable price let me know. All the best
