We removed a post yesterday, it had a clip of the Fall and Michael Clarke on it and it was missed, so here it is again with another from the collaboration. The Fall did quite a bit with Michael, the "I am Curious Orange" gigs at Sadlers Wells in the late eighties being well received and sold out.[/youtube] ;feature=related[/youtube]

I dont know how many times i've seen "Show of Hands" but it's been a regular occurrence for some years now as the band have been local to my old haunts on the Dorset/Devon borders.They are touring at the moment and are coming to Aberteifi (Cardigan) on Friday May the 1st to play at the great "Theatre Mwldan" in town, a place legendary for it's great acoustics and atmosphere, and my live venue saviour when i moved to Cymru earlier this year.
I've seen some great gigs there already this year (The Fureys, and Spiers and Boden) and this one will be a treat, if you have any interest in folk music and fancy a great night out then i can recommend it, if you stay overnight you could pop into our shop by the river.
Book early for the gig they sell out like wildfire.[/youtube]
I came across this great story and website. I wish these guys would come ambling into my local.
We would love to know if anyone has seen them. We might have to see if they would mind stopping in the Carnaby St store next time they pass by.
The catalogue deadline is looming and tonight i managed to steal Nick Hand away from his pixelated 17 inch reality tunnel to another great do at the Theatre Mwldan in Aberteifi. People will be talking about us soon. Here's their website and below was the last song of this evenings set.
Even greater news i heard during the evening was that the Fureys are coming back so get your asses down here.
Nick and i went to watch the Furey's and Davey Arthur last night at the Theatre Mwldan ( a jewell in the crown of Cardigan) . It was a sell out and we ended up sitting next to this lady and her son who was about my age (46), she sang along word for word every song and tapped her knee for over an hour. It was one of those nights where magic was in the air (and whisky in the blood) and a bunch of folks closer to retirement age (and some over) than school age had one great big sing song.
About a month ago I blogged about The Fureys rather excitedly and then left it too late to get some tickets myself. To say i was upset would be a major understatement as i've wanted to see them since i was a lot younger. Luckily and i do mean very luckily (thanks Dil) two spare tickets came up and i got a call out of the blue to let me know we could go, mini miracle.
If you live near a venue where they are touring i can do nothing but recommend a night out that will not be forgotten in a lifetime. Here's the gig list. They're are a truly great band.
If you're ever in Cardigan, come for the weekend and check out our shop, the theatre and bowens fish and chip shop in St Dogmaels, you'll have a good craic as the Furey's would say and go home with a smile on your face and a healthy dose of Welsh hospitality.[/youtube]
On another note, if you are a fan of Roy Orbison or want to hear one of the greatest voices of all time then check this out on bbciplayer before it's gone. Incredible addicive viewing, moving (with some commentary by Johnny Cash and the Travelling Wilbury Jeff Lynne) and just downright rockin.
