FRIDAY NIGHT PROGRESSIVE #233
Date Published: 30th April 2016

I first came across Friday Night Progressive totally by accident, but I soon found myself beguiled by the style and taste of presenter M Destiny who presents a weekly two-hour show showcasing all sorts of progressive music that you are unlikely to hear anywhere else.  This is surely a man after my own heart.  I also very much approve of the way that it is the hub of a whole community of artists, musicians, and collaborators.  I hope that you enjoy them as much as I do.  Welcome aboard, chaps.

Hello, I am M Destiny host of Friday Night Progressive. You will find it to be an incredible independent internet broadcast show. But it’s more than that. We tend to boast that the musicians played on FNP are above the status quo. This includes the multi-instrumentalist and the educated musician. We tend to shy away from computer generated creations and rely on talent using musical instruments and steer this talent for purposes of shear inspirational indulgence. It is only in the FNP chat room where you will find the most talented musicians packed at one time into such an honored space.

GONZO WEEKLY #179: Jon meets John to talk about George
Date Published: 23rd April 2016

Although I physically lived through them, having been born during the balmy summer of 1959, I missed out on the sixties. I spent the vast majority of the decade living in what was then the British Crown Colony of Hong Kong, which was quite a strange place, but almost entirely divorced from what was going on in Carnaby Street or Liverpool.

I had heard of The Beatles, of course, but my only memories of the four lads who shook the world are fairly fragmented ones. I remember the furore in the news at the end of 1963 when a Church of England vicar asked the band to record “Oh Come all ye Faithfull, Yeah Yeah Yeah”. A couple of years later I remembered the storm in a teacup that happened when various old soldiers sent back their MBES in protest at The Beatles getting theirs, and I remember the rumours in 1969 that Paul McCartney had died.

And that is about it.

I returned to England to live just under a year after Paul had announced that the band had split up, and about three years later a schoolfriend lent me copies of the Help and Sergeant Pepper albums. And my life changed forever. I became an avid fan. I collected as many books and records as I could get hold of. And by the time that my first wife and I parted company acrimoniously twenty years ago this summer, I had over six hundred LPs in my Beatles collection. Not bad for a band who only released about a dozen albums during their lifetime. Of course they weren’t all Beatles records. I had the entire recorded oeuvre of each of the members, as many records as I could find that had been released on the Beatles owned Apple Records, and as many of the guest appearances I could find by individual members. I also had foreign pressings, fan club flexis and over three hundred bootleg tapes, the latter even turned up listed in my first book.

I think that you could say that I was a fan. 

Earlier this year someone sent me details of an illustrated discography of George Harrison by a dude called John Blaney. George Harrison was always my favourite of the Fab Four, and I thought that I was pretty au fait with the music that he had made. But I was interested to see what Blaney had made of this all, and so I emailed him politely asking for a copy of the book as a pdf.

When it arrived I loaded it onto my trusty iPad and devoured it in one glorious evening of self indulgence. Four hundred pages, and it only covered the first half of Harrison’s career. Bliss.

As Psychedelic Baby magazine put it: 

“Working in chronological order, Blaney follows all the music Harrison made, produced, collaborated on, and released (as head of his Dark Horse label) through the years 1968-79. Even diehard Beatles/Harrison fans will likely not have previously known about some of the varied recordings Harrison was part of, as studio knob-twiddler, writer, player, label boss, etc. Details abound with respect to Harrison’s musical relationships with the likes of Doris Troy, Billy Preston, Ravi Shankar, Badfinger, Ringo Starr, et al 

Naturally, the greatest attention is given to Harrison’s own records. Blaney offers backstories about every individual song on Harrison’s singles and albums from this period. He also supplies particulars on the playing credits, and offers his critical assessment of each tune/album. And, while he’s correct in stating that his book should not be viewed as a biography per se, he does in fact sprinkle in notes about Harrison’s personal life (focusing on his spiritual quest, but also touching on his love life, friendships, legal and business affairs, etc.) in drawing parallels between what Harrison was living and the music he made; and he analyzes the lyrics to many of Harrison’s songs, offering his impressions of their inspirations and meanings.

A key element of the book is its graphics. It is lushly illustrated with a vast selection of relevant images, including album covers and the records themselves, magazine advertisements, etc. In this respect it can function as a coffee table book that one could enjoy flipping through just for the wealth of illustrations.”

Then I discovered that he had also done the same sort of thing with both Lennon (one volume) and McCartney (four volumes), and so I blagged copies of these off John Blaney as well. I was massively impressed. Clearly this man is an even bigger Beatlenerd than I am. And that is saying something. So I emailed him again, and made arrangements to do an interview. And not to the surprise of anyone who knows me (or I suspect him) we got on like a house on fire and talked happily for ages, only stopping because I discovered with a guilty double take that I was seven minutes late for doing my next interview.

I think that you can take it as a given that I shall be interviewing John Blaney reasonably regularly in the future, if only to get my regular fix of Beatlenerd-dom. But in the meantime this will have to do…

GONZO WEEKLY #179: Jon meets Gregg
Date Published: 23rd April 2016

Gregg Kofi-Brown is, of course best known for his work with seminal African funk rock pioneers Osibisa. They were one of the first, if not THE first African band to achieve popular success in the West. With conscience laden lyrics and funky afro-rhythms Gregg has a created a multi-national musical platform with his guest artists that speaks to many peoples across the world. Gregg Kofi Brown was executive producer of the 2003 Evening Standard cover-mount CD give away in memory of Damilola Taylor which featured the likes of Robbie Williams, Craig David, Gorillaz, Blue and Ms. Dynamite.

In April 1997, Gregg was invited by David Sonenberg (producer of Academy award winner "When We Were Kings") to document & film Lauryn Hill’s (the Fugees) fact-finding mission in East Africa. This documentary was made to highlight the problems of the refugees in Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda and Tanzania and sponsored by Lauryn’s charity The Refugee Project. Gregg & Lauryn performed together several times during this trip and was encouraged by her to make this album.

1998 saw Gregg Kofi & Osibisa perform a special peace concert on hugely popular Asian Music TV programme Sarigama alongside classical Asian stars Jagdit Singh, Farida Khan Banu, Golam Ali, & Runa Laila. In aid of peace between India & Pakistan this show was broadcast to over a half billion people around the world.

As an actor/singer Gregg has appeared in several London West End hit musicals including: Tommy, The Blues Brothers, The Buddy Holly Story and portrayed Jellyroll Morton at the Royal Court Theatre.

Since joining Osibisa Gregg has been invited to record and tour with many African and Caribbean artists such as Youssou N’Dour (Senegal), George Lee (Ghana), Marta Ulaeto (Africa Rise album for Nigeria Independence anniversary), Abdel Kabir (Lye Ngum, Gambia), Ekome’ (Ghana/Jamaica), Chaka Demus & Pliers (Jamaica) and Benjamin Zephania (Jamaica).

Gregg Kofi Brown is featured vocalist and songwriter on Billy Cobham’s new Sony album "Drum N’ Voice" and has written & performed on Stanley Jordan’s new album ‘Dreams of Peace’. As a musician and singer he has also worked with Isaac Hayes, Bomb the Bass and Finley Quaye.

For the past few months I have been working with him on the production of a book which tells his extraordinary life. The book is now finished, so it seemed like a good idea for me to go and give him a ring...

GONZO WEEKLY #178: Jon meets Sir Henry
Date Published: 16th April 2016

I think I have mentioned my friend Jane Bradley before in these pages.  She was a gifted cartoonist, the mother of a young son, and a raving alcoholic who died stumbling - pissed as a rat - across the M5 one evening in early 1995. She inspired one of my better songs (The Day we Buried Jane on my most recent album which came out about two and a half years ago) and twenty one years after her death she turns up in my dreams on occasion, stinking of vodka and still refusing to sleep with me.

And it was Jane who first told me about Viv Stanshall. Well, in fact that is a long way from being true. I knew intellectually who Viv Stanshall was. I had read enough rock music books to know all about the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band, and to know that Stanshall was best friends with the equally insane Keith Moon, and that together they had carried out various performance art practical jokes across Olde London Towne.

But, until Jane I never actually grokked him.

Jane was an enormous fan of Stanshall’s surreal worldview, particularly Sir Henry at Rawlinson End. The album (1978) was released on the Charisma Records label (CAS 1139), featuring Stanshall as multiple characters, talking and singing, in a portrayal of the fictional history of Sir Henry Rawlinson. It is filled with puns, double-entendres, pop-cultural references and clever wordplay. Stanshall initially takes the role of an unnamed narrator, then shifts between character and narrator. The recording features many musical interludes, performed on a variety of odd musical instruments. Guest performers include Steve Winwood and two of Stanshall's children: his biological son Rupert Stanshall and his stepdaughter, Sydney Longfellow (the child of his second wife Ki Longfellow-Stanshall).

But it was more than that. My father, was once upon a time third in line to the governor of Hong Kong, and drank like a fish. He was massively eccentric and -like me - bipolar. However, unlike me, he was completely untreated and so his mood swings were massive, and legendary. I have always thought that he was what Sir Henry would have been with a few more personality defects.

In the last years of her life, Jane got more and more eccentric. She would leave her partner in Exeter (and their small child) and hitch-hike to Scotland where she had another boyfriend and a completely different life. On the way she would always stop off and visit people she knew. And somehow, on these journeys she made friends with the equally ailing Viv Stanshall. I have no idea of their relationship, only that these two massively intelligent, heavy drinking, artists would have had a lot in common.

Viv outlived Jane by about three weeks.

Fast forward to a few weeks ago. Rob and Billy sent me this press release:

For Immediate Release

Bonzo Dog Band’s Vivian Stanshall’s “Sir Henry At Rawlinson End” Soundtrack by Michael Livesley and Brainwashing House feat. Rick Wakeman and Neil Innes To Be Released

“A tour-de-force and a work of Art” – Neil Innes

London, UK – Vivian Stanshall, widely acknowledged as one of the most influential recording artists of the 20th Century may sadly no longer be with us but the incredible words he created live on via the celebrated rave-reviewed recreation of his meisterwerk ‘Sir Henry at Rawlinson End’ by actor, singer and comedian Michael Livesley accompanied by his trusted Brainwashing House band.

Originally created for John Peel’s Radio 1 show in the 1970’s, Sir Henry at Rawlinson End – the meandering gin-soaked saga of a crumbling English stately home and the grotesques who inhabit it headed by the heroically drunk Sir Henry – perfectly distilled and encapsulated Viv’s absurdly hilarious wordplay and songwriting which first hit the public consciousness during the 1960s via his work helming the cult Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band.

The show, now in its 6th year and with the full blessing of the Stanshall family, has earned the praise of Viv’s fans, friends and celebrity fans alike including keyboard wizard Rick Wakeman who, due to his admiration for Michael’s interpretation, has joined the show on piano as a guest many times. This has led to RRAW Records, the exciting new label from Rick and music industry veteran Robin Ayling, proudly presenting this brand new original cast recording of this critically acclaimed stage show as their debut LP release. The recording features Rick guesting on piano, and also Viv’s Bonzo bandmate and sometime Rutle and Monty Python member Neil Innes plus Viv’s favourite violinist Susie Honeyman of The Mekons.

Tracks:

1. Aunt Florrie’s Waltz

2. Interlewd

3. Wheelbarrow

4. Socks

5. The Rub

6. Nice ‘N’ Tidy

7. Pigs ‘Ere Purse

8. 6/8 Hoodoo

9. Smeeton

10. Fool & Bladder

11. Endroar

12. The Beasht Inshide

13. Junglebunny

14. Aunt Florrie Remembers

15. Rawlinsons & Maynards

16. Papadumb

Here’s what’s being said about Vivian Stanshall’s “Sir Henry At Rawlinson End”:

“Michael Livesley embodies to perfection the spirit and brilliance of Vivian Stanshall and adds his own measure of outrageous talent too” – Stephen Fry

“Sir Henry’s bluster and his epic lack of drawing room manners are still winning fun. All very odd, all very Stanshall!” – Clive Davis, The Times

“A work of lyrical genius and poetry, on a different plane to the rest of the world” – Rick Wakeman

“What a night, an ensemble of madmen at their best, smashing!” – Rupert Stanshall, Vivian’s son

“Brilliant! Berserk! Simply wonderful!” – Suzanne Moore, The Guardian

“Livesley’s performance gives weight and truth to that old theatrical cliché – a comic tour-de-force” – Andrew Male, MOJO

“A distorted-mirror celebration of English eccentricity rooted in a riot of linguistic lasciviousness” – Andy Gill, The Independent

For more information please visit www.sirhenrylives.com

I would love to tell you that Jane turned up in my dreams that night with a bottle of Stoly in one hand and shouting “you-must-go-and-interview-this-Livesley-bloke-you-fat-bastard” (when she was excited she would spit out words in a monotone with no attempt at punctuation) but sadly not. I telephoned Michael L for a chat entirely off my own bat.

But I was thinking of Jane all the way through the conversation…

The show is also unique in providing homework for undergraduate students on North West Kent College’s Foundation Degree in Professional Writing (who dig up many of the odd facts featured in the links between tracks).

Neil Nixon, the founder and co-presenter of the show has released a book about rare albums for Gonzo Multimedia. The show is broadcast on Miskin Radio every Sunday from 10-00-midnight.

Strange Fruit #156 - Brothers and sisters
Date Published: 25th March 2016

Strange Fruit is a unique two-hour radio show exploring the world of underground, strange and generally neglected music. All shows are themed and all shows set out to give the most hardened of sound-hounds some new delight to sample. The show is also unique in providing homework for undergraduate students on North West Kent College’s Foundation Degree in Professional Writing (who dig up many of the odd facts featured in the links between tracks). The show is broadcast on Miskin Radio every Sunday from 10-00-midnight. Every other week the show is now presented by Jeremy Smith and as the two promotional pictures that he sent consisted as one of him covered in mud and the other of him covered in guinea pigs he is obviously mad as a bagful of cheese, which means he will fit in here just fine!

He writes: I’ve been a huge music fan ever since my parents bought me a transistor radio and I would listen to the sixties pirate music stations at nights under the covers. This love of live music has stayed with me to this day and I still love standing in a small club like the Borderline in London with some mates and watching a band with a pint in my hand. With the Strange Fruit radio show, I want to continue the trend of doing themed shows and playing the music I love.
