  2. I'm excited about this gig. Steve's gigs are always good value, and BJ Cole is a pedal steel guitar genius... I'm really getting into his albums with Luke Vibert "Stop the Panic" and the solo album "Trouble in Paradise". If you thought pedal steel was synonymous with country music, or hawaiian music then this guy will seriously change your perceptions!

    Out of interest, have you any ideas what BJ's set will be like on Friday, Steve? Will it be "beats and pieces" or his collaboration with Emily Burridge and Guy Evans? What to expect? Or is that the beauty of his stuff - you never know quite what to expect? :D

    And what can we expect from Le Steve?

    Answers on a postcard, please...

    Be there, or be somewhere completely different.

    BJ's set will be along the lines of Trouble In Paradise - the laptop blokey has got all the tracks and samples from the album and is processing, reordering and mashing them up in real time along with BJ and the crazy percussionist. :) I heard them rehearsing yesterday which sounded magic.

    The duo stuff with BJ will probably involve some big sprawling ambient scariness from just the two of us, then I'll hook an EDP up to laptop blokey's computer and we'll do something as a trio/quartet with some beatz and ting. :)

    as for my solo set - some old favourites, maybe a new thing or two, and perhaps a special guest, who knows. ;)

    Steve - No plans for coming up Scarborough way, I suppose? York? Bridlington? I'm in Scarborough hoping to see you soon!!


    Keep up the good work, and hope the gigs go well.

    Hi Mike,

    I'd love to come and play up there - the problem is finding a venue, and someone willing to put the gig on... If you know anyone who is (or fancy having a go yourself!) please email me!

    I'll look into it, Steve. Just listening to the streaming mp3s from your site - really really great stuff, enjoying it greatly.



    Regards

    I've got a couple of gigs coming up, in Brighton and Cambridge, both of them on a triple bill with Theo Travis, and fabulous solo bassist/singer-songwriter, John Lester!

    12th - The Joogleberry Theatre, Brighton, Sussex - Tix £7 doors 8pm. - www.joogleberry.com

    14th - CB2, Norfolk Street, Cambridge - Doors 7pm, Tix £6/£4 concs. http://www.cb1.com/cb2/index.html

    come! tell your friends! tell the world!

    Both venues have a cafe/bar upstairs so would be ideal for meeting other talkbassers beforehand, should you wish to arrange such a get-together! :)

    see you there

    I'm going to be in France next week... sadly, it's only a holiday... :)

    I'd love to come back and play in France some more.
