The Second Coming

Unsurprisingly I missed the website for a month or two back there and am pleased to witness its resurrection. However I now recall that just before it disappeared it had become a bit of a sad litany of recently deceased musicians. So I just thought I'd celebrate some of the exotic living creatures I've come across since my move to the Kentish floodplains.

As much by accident as design I seem to have become more of an fRoots kinda guy of late listening and watching Kent's finest purveyors of country, blues, folk, jazz, barrelhouse........
It seems to be to be a pretty rich crop down here.

Look, I'm just going to list names. It may turn out I'm way behind and y'all will have heard of them all already and they're all old hat but, well you can youtube'em if you want.

I've been having a fine time with The Desert Turkeys, Ma Polaine's Great Decline, Blue on Black, King Zepha, Katie Bradley, Booga Red, The Bob Dylan Experience (Oh Yes), Screaming Miss Jackson and The Slap Yer Mama Big Band, The Noble Jacks, King Size Jones, The Native Oyster Band, and Richard Rozze amongst others.

Nowadays I just get to watch whoever comes to town. I don't go searching.

All power to you Will.

The only names familiar to me from your list are Ma Pollaine's and King Zepha. I shall, as you suggest, Youtube the others. Keeping in mind that Youtube just might not do them justice. Because I long ago concluded that music is best appreciated live and live music best appreciated in a small friendly venue with a drink in hand. It sounds like you've got that going on right on your doorstep.

We're spoilt for choice in London, but have to do a fair bit of travelling round town in order to really take advantage of that choice.

Let's keep celebrating our live music discoveries and if others care to join us, all the better.

That is a proviso I meant to add Jamie.

It does occur to me that I am not, by and large, currently experiencing anything ground breaking but just enjoying seeing people once again whooping up a storm playing from the roots. "Here's another old Casey Bill Weldon number fer ya'........."
And, of course, with The Bob Dylan Experience I've succumbed to the lure of the dreaded tribute band but, in the words on Brinsley Schwarz Surrender To The Rhythm. They were excellent.
