Loudhailer Acoustic March 2017

Thanks to everyone who came to listen to the music and to play at this month’s Loudhailer Acoustic. It was a fab night as ever with a great mix of music and a super vibe. Lovely to see new people in the audience too. Smashing sets from Gifford Rolfe and Joan Foye, Dez Allenby, Roy Kibbler, Brian Williams, Strawberry Moon, Graham Graham Beck, Catherine Scott, Jackson D, Roy Lyon, Ian Martinson and our host at The Back Room Paul Sutton.

We’ve got a few gigs which you may be interested in coming up – it would be great to see a good gathering at our Loudhailer Electric Company gig at The Adelphi on Sat April 8th. Looking forward to a great bill with our buddies Sleeperman, a fab four-piece band from the East Coast of Yorkshire, also with a big history, and playing their debut Adelphi appearance. Guitarist Neil Scott and bassist Stephen Skinner played with Orange Juice, and Neil with Everything But The Girl. Sleeperman’s unique original material is somewhere between The Bad Seeds and Ivor Cutler with classic guitar sounds and mysterious poem songs.

Loudhailer Acoustic February 2017

A big high five to everyone who came to February’s Loudhailer Acoustic. We had such a terrific night, with an especially excellent audience and a host of fabulous performers.

Rich & I opened the show before Zach Theodorou took to the stage with an amazing array of percussion and a wonderfully dynamic and exciting set incorporating world rhythms and his mesmerizing bowed glockenspiel. Dez Allenby played two beautiful original folk songs featuring bouzouki, whistle, his fabulous trademark shruti box, and guest guitarist, Phil Friend. We were delighted to welcome Fiona Lee to Loudhailer Acoustic for the first time with a super stage presence and two lovely original songs. Phil Friend’s contemplative and gentle solo set closed the first half before we had a break for a chat over a beer.

The second half opened with Ian Martinson joined by Roy Lyon on harmonica with a mix of Ian’s new original songs and stories of his other life as a sculptor. Martin Peirson’s set included two songs from his most excellent new album and included a great story of how his song Sparks came about. Next up we were particularly pleased to welcome our original poet Roy Kibbler to the stage with a trio of astute music related poems which had the whole room laughing. A real tonic, full of funny and perceptive lines –  about the old rocker whose favourite band these days is …Elasticated – keeps bringing a smile to my face as I’m writing this. The penultimate performance of the evening was a particularly cool and groovy set from the splendidly toe-tapping Strawberry Moon. Showcasing Jeff’s bluesy guitar songs, Cathy’s heartfelt vocals, Dez’s kalimba – reminding me of a Fender Rhodes – and Kelvin’s right on the groove cajon, the band were on top form, fabulous stuff. Last but not least, the most awesome blues harp player Brian Williams blew everyone away with his high energy stompin’ American blues, whoops, hollers and all – and got a huge round of applause and an encore. Brilliant night! Thanks to everyone who came to play and to listen – it was fantastic to have such a great audience to appreciate the music. Keep Music Live!

Loudhailer Acoustic January 2017

Jeff, John and KelvinWelcome to a new year of Loudhailer Acoustic! The first one was back in 2010, so here we go into our seventh year. And what a great start to 2017 it was.

The Back Room was as welcoming as ever with a lovely vibe and great audience. Dexter joined me and Rich on violin for a couple of songs to open the show, then it was terrific to welcome Phil Pipe back with two great songs and a poignant tale of George W Bush’ meeting the Indian Nations and hope in times of Trump. Strawberry Moon featuring Jeff Parsons, Dez and Cathy Allenby and Kelvin Baldwin played two fabulously groovy songs with echoes of Parisian cafes and were followed by John Cox’s funky summery sounds, just what we needed on a January night. Brian Williams’ kept up the feel-good music with his amazing blues harp and one man band rhythm section with two fine Sleepy John Estes classics.

carries-bookIt was ace to welcome Carrie Hitchcock to Loudhailer Acoustic for the first time, and especially good to hear her fabulous version of Michelle Shocked’s Graffiti Limbo. Carrie recently published a wonderful book of photographs and stories of her time in Hull, and got in touch as she wanted to include a CD of tracks by my band at the time, Janes Plane.  I love the book – like Carrie I lived on Coltman Street when I was a teenager, and then bought a house on Stepney Lane for £1000 – which you could do back then – so lots of it is strangely familiar. Although our paths crossed we didn’t really meet until last night – so there was lots to chat about over a glass of wine at the break.

Dez Allenby opened the second half with two songs, first up, a truly wonderful brand new piece – Travellers’ Tales – performed for the first time. It was a mesmerising song including the most evocative spoken word stories and Dez’s beautiful shruti box. We were enchanted and I can’t wait to hear it again. Excellent to see Kelvin Baldwin join Dez on cajon for an amazing version of Keep Your Eyes On The Prize (Hold On). A fab set from Ian Martinson – great that he played two of his own newly written songs accompanied by Roy Lyon on harmonica. He was followed by Martin Peirson who played super songs from his forthcoming album to be launched at Kardomah 94 on February 17th – be there! I looked round the room during Graham Graham Beck’s doom version of Action Man with a Giraffe’s Head, and vampy Monkey in the Clog Tree to see smiles of wonder and incredulousness – a hard act to follow, but done with ease by Roy Lyon who sat back and played two tracks from his album recorded by John Cox and 68 years in the making. Thanks to everyone who came to play, and to everyone in the audience, it’s always such a lovely night.

The next Loudhailer Acoustic is Friday February 3rd – note the day change to a Friday, just for Feb, then back to Thurs in March, so, Friday February 3rd and Thursday March 2nd 2017.

Here is Rich’s gallery of photos from the evening. Click on an image to see the full picture and scroll through…

Thanks to Paul at The Back Room in Cottingham, a lovely music venue with good craft beers.

Just before we go, here, out of the woodwork following Carrie’s book, Janes Plane and Vondelpark. The footage is from a Channel 4 programme back in 1982. We actually got to support Stiff Little Fingers at the Brixton Ace/Fridge. I’ve had that fretless Music Man a long time…

Hope to see you next time, and it’s always great to welcome new people – come along and listen to a fabulous range of acoustic music, quality songwriting and some familiar classics from a host of different performers. Loudhailer Acoustic is at The Back Room 175a Hallgate, Cottingham HU16 4BB. Doors 7.00 pm music at 7.30 pm £2 entry.  If you would like to come and play a couple of songs please contact us to let us know – it’s always great to see new and familiar faces.

A Perfect Combination Gig

What a brilliant night it was at last night’s gig ‘A Perfect Combination’ at Kardomah94. It was an amazing evening. There were so many of our musical heroes there, and magic moments came thick and fast throughout the night.

We loved the vibe throughout sets from a host of bands all of whom had members featured on the recently released Perfect Combination CD – Martin Peirson, Peter Robinson (ex Diggory Venn) with Dez Allenby and friends; Ted Key and Hugh Whitaker (ex Gargoyles and Housemartins); Cassie Patton (ex Cheap Thrills); Keith Cheesman (Ched) and his band; MG Greaves, The Brontes, Sleeperman (ex The Vets).  We were delighted to be invited to play a Loudhailer Electric Company set to represent some of the bands Jeff and I played in who feature on the Perfect Combination album. In the spirit of the evening we did something we’ve never done before and played a Red Guitars song – Good Technology, a Dead Fingers Talk song – Fight Our Way Out Of Here, and and one of our own we’ve recorded for the Fairview Studio 50th anniversary – Underneath the Underground.

The show was topped off with a tribute to Rod Temperton – so big high fives to everybody on and off the stage who joined us playing, singing and dancing to Boogie Nights.

It was an amazing night all round, but really special when Geoff Appleby joined us on the stage for Boogie Nights – fantastic!

Thanks to organisers Gary Marks and Andy Richardson, Burnsy for MCing the evening, Mal at Kardomah94 and  to Matt White for a great sound & cool vibe on the desk.

Rich took this gallery of photos, click on an image to see the full picture and scroll through…

All the proceeds of the night were donated to a local charity, The Stephen Hughes Foundation. Stephen was a young Hull born school teacher and footballer who died at the age of 23 of the heart condition giant cell myocarditis. The charity set up in his name raises funds for the British Heart Foundation, the Myocarditis Foundation and the Stephen Hughes Foundation Sports Award which helps primary school children participate in sport for social skills and self-esteem purposes. It was lovely to meet Stephen’s family and friends, what an excellent charity, celebrating Stephen’s life by creating real positive musical and sporting benefits for children and young people.

Andy White is brilliant! Rich & I have loved his music since his first album, Rave On, back in 1986, so we were thrilled to promote his gig here in Hull at the lovely venue, Kardomah94. And what a fabulous evening it was.  Andy played two storming sets full of gems right through from his first hit, Religious Persuasion, to requests from the audience including Everybody Wants Somebody the closing track on his brand new album, Imaginary Lovers. Originally from Belfast and now living in Melbourne, Andy entertained us with story-songs of his travels and the people he’s met along the way. He’s a superb wordsmith with a box set full of terrific catchy tunes and the knack of expressing his intelligent tales and sometimes challenging messages with a gentle charm.

Chris Heron, our Loudhailer Electric Company violinist, opened the show with a solo set of his own compositions and arrangements. Chris created towering cathedrals of sounds on his loop station improvising layers of guitar, violins and vocals.  What a wonderful night all round.

Andy is touring his new album and 12 CD box set, celebrating the 30th anniversary of the release of Rave On. Check it out here 

Special thanks to Mal Scott at Kardomah94,  Matt Lund for a fab sound and the lovely audience – great vibe.

Loudhailer Acoustic November 2016

It was a monster of a Loudhailer Acoustic last night, in the best possible way! So, monster sized thanks to everyone who came along to listen to the music and to play. The room was full, the vibe was lovely.

la-medley-landscape

Everybody played their hearts out, so, on order of appearance, big high fives to Dez and Cathy Allenby who opened the show with their gorgeous song about Hull, We Sail our Castles and Brian Williams for his rollin’ and tumblin’ blues grooves. It was fabulous to welcome Adrian Welham to Loudhailer Acoustic with a most wonderful set topped off with Wind Prayer. Catherine Scott’s feisty poems were up to the minute, and Gifford Rolfe and Joan Foye were all in black and a joy as always. Roy Kibbler entertained us with his thought provoking and new poems.

To close the first half, Rich and I were joined by Jeff Parsons, Rich Walker and Chris Heron aka Loudhailer Electric Company unplugged and we played exclusive acoustic versions of a a pair of songs from our album.

Graham Graham Beck’s second half opener was as engaging and off the wall as ever, the brand new Monkey in the Clog Tree and a Scottish reel-ish version of I Think Therefore I’m Not. It was brilliant to welcome Jim Orwin back to Loudhailer, mesmerising as ever with two of our favourites, beautifully crafted and delivered. Chris Heron and Dan Halsey played a really interesting set, Dan’s lovely upbeat New Day, and then Chris demonstrated a fabulous improvised violin piece layering up tracks on his loop station. Ian Martinson’s set had everyone singing along, and Martin Peirson played a pair of cool and classy songs. Jeff Parsons invited Kelvin Baldwin, Dez and Cathy to join him and played a lovely pair of songs which took us back to summer days. Next up, Neil Thomas and Chris Heron treated us to two acoustic Pavey Ark songs. Finally on this bumper Loudhailer Acoustic line up it was terrific to welcome Holly and Will, Crooked Weather, whose wistful and wonderful songs closed the show.

Rich apologies for lack of photographs as he was suffering from a bad back, but normal service will be resumed next time, Thursday December 1st – see you then, if not before.

Just a note about a couple of upcoming events before we go…
