Photo: Brian Aris At the end of the day, it’s just nice to get out there with the old bass and take a few of the old songs with me and sort of say to them “See, I haven’t forgotten you”. Throughout the long career of the Moody Blues, although all of the members have..
You might not know the name Nova Cascade, but gather round and listen... Perhaps best described as a collective around the hub of Dave Hilborne (vocals and keys), the band known as Nova Cascade released their debut album Above All Else around a year ago, and it had much to recommend it. Fast Forward to..
You remember Samson, right? Sure you do, the band which Bruce Dickinson was in before he left to join Iron Maiden and make history. If that describes your first thoughts about the band, and maybe your only ones, then you’ve got a lot in common with a whole lot of listeners, rock fans or no,..

Tonight was an occasion. A life-affirming, shared occasion between band and audience. And it will not be easily forgotten. Over the past few years, since first playing at the Citadel with the Classic Rock Society, it’s fair to say that Mostly Autumn have fallen in love with the venue, immediately including it as a ‘must-play’..
With the demise of the Classic Rock Society having been announced only a couple of months earlier, June brought with it the closure of both the wonderful old Citadel venue and also the last ever CRS shows. This one was the first of those gigs, and if ever the time was ripe for a good..
In late 1974, Roxy Music guitarist Phil Manzanera began thinking that the time might be right for him to record a solo album. When he eventually elected to do so, in December of that year, he did what would perhaps not have been most people’s first idea: he recorded two at the same time. While..
When released in June 1995, Marillion earned critical acclaim with Afraid of Sunlight – the band’s eighth studio album and final release on EMI. The album peaked at #16 in the U.K. and introduced fans to the Top 30 hit, “Beautiful.” Parlophone will revisit this neo-progressive classic on 1st November with two versions of AFRAID..
To those not around at the time, it’s difficult to explain just what made the Pink Fairies great. Musically they were a multiple car crash involving psychedelia, heavy metal, MC5 proto-punk and hints of prog. With a big sense of humour and a lot of drugs. Did I mention the drugs? They did like the..
It’s always with a little trepidation that one picks up one of these old vintage recordings: very often, despite a nice cover and tempting tracklist it can turn out to be a bootleg-quality audience recording which does the artist more of a disservice. Happily, that is far from the case here, as this fairly bursts..
