Always been a bit of a Beefheart fan and often toyed with the idea of seeing “The Magic Band” when they’ve toured but never got off me arse. The third part of my 3 different bands in less than a week adventure.
Arriving just in time to catch the end of support band “The Watches” (I think they were called that – spelt with a triangle on the A like all the cool kids are doing at the mo) lead singer tearing up the stage – Lots of passion – pretty good actually.
Went along last night to see Wire at the wonderful Brudenell Social Club. Magic Rock’s “Rapture” ale adding a nice accompaniment to the evenings proceedings.
I’m was already familiar with Ed’s name due to him being the tour manager of the Stranglers when they did their U.S tour in 78’ and Ed’s eventual move to manager in 1980-82. So when I heard he’d written a book I thought I’d take a look. I noticed it was less than a fiver on Amazon so I didn’t think twice about the purchase.
Was looking forward to this especially after the previous week’s amazing Sheffield gig.
