Frost* / Re: Fogey's Big Banana World Tour - Sign-Up List

Fogey's tour shirt looked pretty damn good last night, I must say.
Quote from: "Trapezium Artist"That said, my brother wrote to me from Japan today re: my photos, saying "Middle-aged man taking pictures of middle-aged men with beards ... hmmm".

To which my response was "Better and safer that than a middle-aged man taking pictures of pretty young things on the street or at the beach, surely"  ;)

That's what the telephoto lens was invented for...

*ahem* Er, yes, excellent photos once again, TA.  8-)

New track alert! I Called Him In Vain

QuoteAnother rough mix of a track from the forthcoming Shineback album - Rise Up Forgotten, Return Destroyed. This track features the marvellous talents of dance songwriter and vocalist Danny Claire.

This one is from the rather more relaxed and dare I say quiet side of the Shineback album.

Quote from: "Pedro"Thanks for sharing it here.

About bloody time!  :lol:  I will endeavour to post updates as and when I can... or am allowed to. I can definitely tell you one thing - the people who think prog should all sound like 1970s Yes and be about hobbits are going to hate it.  :D

Is it Frost* tracks only?

Not officially, no  ;)

Actually, it's an errr, interesting collection thus far.

My third vote went to Simon And Garfunkel. I believe they are a good set who could go far given the right support.

I suppose it's about time I plagued you lot with this.  ;)  The older Godfrey being has a solo project on the go. It is called Shineback, the album is called Rise Up Forgotten, Return Destroyed and it's on course to be released at some point in the first half of next year. Artwork will be provided by that talented bugger Vitamin P. It's rather different from what Simon has done as part of Tinyfish, focusing a lot more on electronic sounds and composition. There are a few special guests involved: Matt Stevens, Andy Ditchfield (DeeExpus), Henry Rogers (DeeExpus / Touchstone / Final Conflict / Nerve Toy Trio), Dec Burke and Hywel Bennet (The Dec Burke Band).

There are a few tasters and sneak peaks out there to whet the appetite. Here's what Simon's chucked up onto Soundcloud so far:

Shineback Album Audio Teaser - This runs through much of the album and gives a good idea of what to expect without giving too much away about what happens when. There have been quite a few changes made since this was stuck together, so it shouldn't spoil the first listen when the album is released.

Here Come The Envoys (Intro) - This is a rough mix of the intro to a song called Here Come The Envoys that Simon posted about a few pages back.

The Envoy - The Envoy was used as the Celebr8 theme, but I believe it was a leftover piece from Shineback, so it's rather similar to some elements of the album.

Little Keys - Little Keys won't be on the main album, but it will be featured somewhere as a bonus track. Personally, it's one of my favourites from the Shineback canon and I think of it much more than a mere extra.

Rise Up Forgotten, Return Destroyed (Clip) - This is a short snippet of the album's title track to give a little taste of Henry Rogers' drumming contribution.

They are the four uploads that are most apparent to me as being directly relevant to RUF,RD, but there are a few other tracks on Simon's Soundcloud page here which may be of interest.

Over on YouTube, there are three related videos:

1. A teaser trailer for the album, featuring the more ambient element of some of the music.

2. The Memory House 1 video blog.

3. The Memory House 2 video blog. This features the multi-vocal part Roger speaks of.

Finally, there is another full demo track available for listening as part of an episode of The European Perspective which was co-coordinated by our very own James 'LivingForever' Hendry and that can be found here. The track can be found towards the end of the show, although the whole thing is really worth a listen as it's an electro special looking at the more progressive side of that style.

...So yeah, there you go.  :)
There are some exceptional photos there, TA. I've got to highlight this one as being totally superb:

Bravo, sir. See you in a fortnight at the Scala.  :)

It's a marvelous thing indeed, although it was a bit cramped behind that door. I was ordered in there at the end of October.  8-)

Glad the tour was a good 'un, sir. The note count must have been through the roof and then some.  ;)
Thanks, guys! Yesterday was the best day I've had in a long time. I met up with old friends in Middlesbrough for drinks and giggles. I drank far too much and we all slagged off ELP. It was marvelous.  :D

Nein, it was an independent endeavour.

Welcome to the madhouse by the way, Frist In Line.  :)

Can I just say, the Illinoise album (AKA Come Feel The Illinoise!) is utterly bonkers and I recommend it to the house?

Quote from: "Mouse"That's one gig I really hope to get to (he says, tempting fate).
See you there.

Cue instant disaster

You've gone n' done it now!
