R J Forster on Flickr took this. I absolutely love it. Judging by the positions of my hands I think I’m playing the start of “It Could be Me”.
Thanks to Tim Ellis for these beauties.
My third gig with Strangefish last night. It was a long day… I started at 7:30am – I had planned to be at the venue at around 10:30 and with a 2 hour journey ahead I needed to be ready. Freshly showered and breakfasted I set off – only to make much better time thanContinue reading “Fishy Happenings”
I presume you’re wanting to know how the first Strangefish gig went? After all the build up has been huge from my point of view.

Chris and Kev left; Steve the flute player quit toContinue reading “6 years ago.”
Mostly Autumn – The Spirit of Autumn Past Still their finest album, even after all these years.

People around the world joined because after all – no-one else would touch Prog with a shitty stick. Bands couldn’t get gigs because most venues wanted to put on theContinue reading “Prog is stagnating…”
So Progeny seems now to be occupying the space previously occupied by Rotherham Rocks (my birthday weekend – usually 2nd weekend in May). I suppose we have to move on, but I do fear this is the end of CRS gigs in Rotherham as they begin to move down south, then again – if youContinue reading “Hello Progeny, Farewell Rotherham Rocks”
