Venue: The Roadmender
Location: Abington Square Northampton England
Opening for the I-Saws, for whom I shall also be blowing a little bit of sax
ISAWS + me + No Truth
Doors for this show are at seven o'clock. First act on around half past seven. I shall play around a quarter past eight. Yes, I shall be playing sax on a couple of tunes with the ISAWS. Yes, they are going to cover The Jazz Butcher Meets Count Dracula. Yes, I shall be singing it. Yes, they really do play it about 6 times faster than I have ever heard it played before.
What a top way to spend the Sunday evening of a Bank Holiday weekend.
It has been a long time since I have heard Out of Touch and the Jazz Butcher Theme played live (if I have ever had the pleasure before). The new slant put on old tunes gave them a freshness, but also made me think back, and realise that I first saw this chap play live over 22 years ago now !!!
Thanks for the 3 minute chunks of happiness over that time, Mr Butch...... and thanks too to the Isaws, transporting us back to a time when Northampton had one fine music scene.... the tip of the hat to Bela during JB meets Count Dracula a heartwarming acknowledgement to rivals of yesteryear.
Coupled with a couple of covers and a couple of new JB originals, we had a taster of something old, something new, something borrowed and ummmmm something else.
The world needs more of this ! Now the Masters are over, don't be a stranger !
