Bits and pieces May 2014

The Touchline – Hullbridge, Essex

This was the first show with Mark Rogers on drums and must have to say played two excellent sets on the night. It was lovely to see Dave and Trudy again who work very hard in organising this event and we thank them very much for their  incredible hospitality. Also big thanks to Steve who also done an excellent sound mix on the night. We loved how the audience got up on their feet during the second part of the show and never sat back down. We thank everyone there  for making it a wonderful night for us.

David Bowie Convention – Derby

I’ve got to say that David Bowie hardcore fans are  the loveliest people I have met in all the time I have played live shows and this excellent convention never failed. I was really pleased when Jimster, who has been a long time follower of David, discussed with me in 2013  the idea of a convention in Derby. So when I got a call earlier this year asking for some free dates I knew that all was going as he had planned. Everyone who was on the bill gave wonderful performances, as I did try to catch most of it. We finished the night off to an amazing audience with Rick Cook on drums (his first show with us) and done us proud. As we approached the end, many from the other bands joined us on stage for a thunderous version of All The Young Dudes as a fitting tribute to David Priest who has recently left our world. I’m sure he would have been very proud of it and we all loved every minute  we were there. Also a big thanks to Paul Kinder from Bowie Wonderwolrd for the support he gave the event. It was a pleasure to be there amongst wonderful people.

Other bits

Earlier this year Mark Hatton gave us the sad news that he would be leaving the band, so we knew we had to spend quite a bit of time getting the right person who would be able to fit in perfectly with Aladdinsane. Luckily with Rick on board and Mark Rogers playing a few shows with us we are now in a situation where we can progress with new material and ideas. Although we have a very healthy repertiore of material I always like to work on something new and feel the time is now right. So hopefully in the shows later this year there will be some new ideas incorporated. We look forward to returning to the Huntingdon Hall theatre in Worcester on the 24th May and hopefully see some of you there.
