    [Oct 14, 2012] Terry Reid (Aberdeen)

    Balls, date is Sun 14th Oct, sorry, I'm a luddite.
  4. Quality transcends generations. The celebrity endorsements Terry Reid has received from those at the cutting edge of Rock and Roll has continued for decades and confirms his enduring talent and position as one of the UK’s finest performers ever. Famously, Jimmy Page identified him as his first choice to front Led Zepplin and it was Terry himself who suggested Robert Plant as a suitable substitute. Aretha Franklin was also a fan, stating in 1968 that “there are only 3 things happening in England; The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Terry Reid”. More recently, Jack White and his Raconteurs covered Terry’s Rich Kid Blues and DJ Shadow had Terry guest on the hauntingly beautiful Listen from his new Reconstructed album. The respect Terry receives from his peers and collaborators is tangible. Despite this, fame and fortune has somehow eluded Terry but this only enhances the intrigue. How could a man so immensely talented, a man so steeped in Rock history, from his breathtaking appearance at Glastonbury in 1970 to numerous film soundtracks, to albums filled with poignant beauty and heartfelt soul, be anything other than a household name? Frankly, to anyone who has seen Terry perform or listened to any of his tremendous back catalogue, it is one of life’s greatest mysteries. Terry returns to Aberdeen for an intimate show at Drummonds. If you make one show this year, it must be this. Terry Reid is truly a Rock and Roll legend and the opportunity to see talent of this magnitude does not come along often. Join him at Drummonds on Sunday 14th October from 7pm. Tickets are available at One Up so pop down, get your Terry ticket and buy a CD or two to help out that finest of Aberdeen musical institutions. Check out the latest release with DJ Shadow here: http://vimeo.com/48217525 ‘Terry Reid is the rare living legend whose enthusiasm for music remains unscathed and pure, nearly 50 years on." DJ Shadow ‘....The most soulful British vocalist ever...’ The Independent ‘...Terry Reid’s voice has the power to provoke an intense reaction...’ - The Times ‘...Astonishing by any standards: spine tingles, hair prickles on back of the neck...’ The Independent ‘...When Reid bares those emotions it’s heartbreakingly beautiful...’ The Guardian ‘..this man should have had my life’ Robert Plant.. the Joint ,Beverly Hills 2004

    The Hip Hop Thread

    It's what the Internet was invented for, no? This thread has been grand, I ken eff-all about Hip Hop. Pretty much everything I'd recommend has been mentioned before; GZA - Liquid Swords Wu Tang Clan - 36 Chambers Dr Octogon - Dr Octogon Public Enemy - Fear Of A Black Planet Ultramagnetic MC's - Critical Breakdown Gang Starr - Step Into The Arena Brand New Heavies - Heavy Rhyme Experience I'm a pretty big soul/funk fan, if you're interested in hip hop I'd suggest digging a bit deeper and checking out: Eugene McDaniels - Headless Heroes of the Apocalypse The Impressions - Young Mods Forgotten Story Bo Diddley - Black Gladiator Ronnie Foster - Two Headed Freap The Politicians - Psycha-Soula-Funkadelic Funkadelic - Maggot Brain VA - Shaolin Soul (Collection of tracks sampled by the Wu Tang Clan) I love all of those above and think, to a greater or lesser extent, they've all been part of the foundations the hip hop I enjoy have been built on. You might also find something of interest on my blog - The North East Beast - but it's mostly garage/psych rather than soul/funk/jazz.

    Mudhoney @ the tunnels

    Well I'll be a monkey's uncle... Superb news! Wildebeests as support?
  8. Yaas min! I'd go to that! I'd even waive Strumpets fee! Me and Helen got together at the start of Strumpet and next week, over a decade on, we're getting married. Mental. I'd go with: The Needles (Teenage Bomb/Beat Of The City Vintage) Maple (3 piece) The Downroads The Leap In the old Drakes.

    Soul Fans

    A splendid label. I have a Binky Griptite 45 and a Naomi Shelton one, as well as a half dozen by Sharon Jones. I'll shamelessly self promote my own record blog here - The North East Beast - but I'd really recommend Funky16Corners for all your funk/soul needs. The archive is awesome.

    Soul/Funk/Beat Blog

    Fit like? For anyone interested in (mostly) 60's records, I've been firing some of my collection online recently. Some of you might enjoy some of it... The North East Beast
  11. Come one, come all. A night of the finest soul, funk and beat from the 60's and 70's! Dancefloor classics to forgotten rarities. universal sounds aberdeen | MySpace.com The North East Beast From 9pm, 3. Come. Dance. Enjoy.
  12. "Tired, predictable, dated Dad-rock about half as 'quirky' as I'm sure it once seemed" - Who's yir Daddy like, Captain Beefheart? James Chance was in Bagdad before you were in your dad's bags so I don't know what you were expecting. You wouldn't go and see Led Zepplin expecting them to have the passion and energy they had in their 20's. He is getting on a bit and time does catch up with us all but his band were super bad, which is good, and he put on twice the show the "kids" did through in the other tunnel. I have a couple of Contortions records and I doubt I could listen to one all the way through without getting bored but that's a common complaint of any band in that genre from me. I had to leave early due to work the next day and it was probably the right time for me to go - I left wanting a little more, if I'd stayed for another couple of songs i'd probably have seen too much and been jaded like yourself.
  13. Im heading down now - woop
  14. 17.50 to hear him yap for an hour??
