@ Joan:

From my point of view the speed can be credited almost entirely to Pugwash. I've witnessed how he chased Roadie Roger Hoodless across stage just by his looks.

Being primarily a bassist,  I tend to look at this aspect first - for example, what a joy it was to hear John McKenzie's playing on 'Something Is Happening'.
Yes, JM is my favourite Man bass player. In fact I think he is the best bass player Man has ever had.
I don't remember right now the bass line you refer but I often find myself singing the bass line he did in Love can find a way or Let the good times roll, for example.
Just awesome. I can't imagine MA doing that, sorry...  ;)

I think JM was the best in terms of technical ability. However...I think Will Youatt was the ideal bassist for the type of Man stuff I like the best. He managed to take the driving elements of Martin's style and add to it with nice variations, always on the button as the music would ebb and flow.

yes, I suppose so, I'm a drummer too and the speed of songs (the tempo) is our first worry...and our main fault...
It's very hard to know/remember exactly the speed of 15 different songs when you are playing live in a concert.
Usually the songs played live are faster than the studio ones (due to nerves, adrenaline, etc)
especially if you don't have a metronome with you to know which exact tempo/speed you have to use to start the song.
Anyway I suppose Pugwash and the whole band wanted the songs this faster.

Yes, John Mckenzie was some technician on the bass, but a little over the top for Man and brought out all the latent Steely Dan disciplines in Phil! Begone JMcK! This a rock band not the David Sanborn show!

Somebody was round my house the other night and said that Ken Whaley never worked for them in Man. I disagree a little - but what you hear of KW on Man records is pretty standard Man bass playing rather than his free-flowing "Casadesque" (ooh, I like that!) style that is allegedly his trademark and which is more evident in the Green Ray. Now, I am a huge Helps fan so really appreciate KW best in that.

No, it's got to be Ace or Will for me. Both have the oft-derided Manband "one note, usually A" groove that matters. Yes, both are great bass players as somebody said, and too often painted out as simplistic. When you've got a band where the guitarists play off the seat of their pants, with a world class drummer sticking in little accents and generally joining in, someone's got to look to the boat and keep an even keel!

Dai - help me out. What have we always said about the sheer beauty of a one-note shuffle played immaculately and the immense satisfaction it brings to a bassist when the groove is just so...?

after watching the 1975 rockapalast movie, i noticed how tasteful a player martin ace is,he certainly doesn't play too much,every once in a while he lays down a really nice lick,riff or groove or something,yes it's cool to groove on one note,i like to do it,one could play more,it's good to know when not to play etc.i think i like all the bass players from man in their own way in their moments...
Blown away (BBC sessions 1974)
Scotch corner (1973-1974 sessions)

Good find! These must be the ones to which Davey referred earlier. They were recorded on 27 Feb 1974 and were first transmitted on 'Sounds Of The Seventies' on 1 April. 'Blown Away' is a beltingly good version.
...yep!

 

Nektar - excerpt from 'Remember The Future': http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8FnANLIb0P4
Miming in 1974.

thanks for that clip mr. nation that's the first song i've heard and seen by them, interesting...i haven't figured

out how to cut and paste videos yet(soon) but there is a video on you tube for the studio version of c'mon

that features the cover of bgty slowly and psychedelicly changing over the course of the song in a very

conducive way to the ambience emanating from the photograph.if you type in man bananas in the you tube

search, the same person who posted bananas posted this particular version of c'mon,it's pretty cool-peace

Ladeez And Gentlemen.....Bob Rock Steady Richards!

Man - Bob's Drum Solo from Bananas - Patti Pavillion - 2004: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ljDOLqaHLI&feature=related
Note GJ trying to flog off his white Strat in the middle of the drum solo...

Aidrian Smith Band - Unknown Demo - 1993: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1uJOS9ihEik&feature=related
Bob seemingly with gated reverb in a non-linear mode teams up with an Iron Maiden axeman to produce a crunchy groove.


John Cippolina:
Terry And The Pirates - Rockpalast - 1980s - Inlaws & Outlaws: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VzDydcguxpY&feature=channel_page

Man - Feltham Rox (Welsh Convention) - Wings Of Mercury - 1993: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AiLyrsyr2kQ&feature=related
MJ's tribute to JC.

Also worth mentioning that sometimes Youtube is prone to stopping/starting during playback. This is because it is run on PP3 batteries from somebody's shed and a zillion people are logged in. To get round this, let the entire clip play through first, then replay.


Davey - I can't hold back anymore. I must share, I can't help myself! To add a link:

1. Copy that link (by highlighting, then select 'Ctrl' and 'c').
2. Move your cursor to where you want to insert that link within the text of your message.
3. Left click the globe symbol which you will find just above the row of smileys of 'post reply'. It'll say 'insert hyperlink' if you hover your mouse over it. This should give you 'url' followed by '/url', both within square brackets.
4. Select 'Ctrl' and 'v' - this should paste the highlighted link between the 'urls'.
5. Check on preview.

Note that the 'url's' do not show in the reply, the computer recognises these as codes to show the start and end of a hyperlink. Hope this works ok.

Of course, this will never happen.       

Nice to see a bit of irony surfacing.  Always a good reaction to trauma.

Well done Joan - I have only got that show on an old VHS cassette that I can't find!

You haven't got the Hardin & York tune "Tomorrow Today" from the same show have you?
