Bebop Spoken There

Dave Puddy: "Eventually we paid our entrance money [to Eel Pie Island] and fought our way to one of the many bars where we could buy our Newcastle Brown and retire to the back of the heaving dancefloor. There must have been lights somewhere, but my memory remains of being in some dark cavernous wonderland." - (Just Jazz July 2020)

Dave Rempis:Ten years from now, I can see musicians streaming concerts in real time and charging a minimal amount for people to watch.” - (DownBeat September 2013)

The Things They Say!

Hudson Music: Lance's "Bebop Spoken Here" is one of the heaviest and most influential jazz blogs in the UK.

Rupert Burley (Dynamic Agency): "BSH just goes from strength to strength".

Today

As we all know there are no live gigs taking place in the immediate future. However, any links to jazz streaming that are deemed suitable - i.e. with a professional approach - will be considered for posting.

Plenty Time For No Time For Jive @ The Magnesia Bank, North Shields.

Brian Lynam (hca/vcl), Pete Readhead (gtr), Keith Forsyth (bs/vcl), Nat McLeave (dms).
Newcastle were playing Sunderland in Newcastle so I decided a visit to the Jazz Café which is situated precariously close to St Jame's Park would be unwise. Instead I opted for the Maggi Bank where No Time For Jive were playing Chicago Blues.
This was rivetting (as in shipyards) my baby done me wrong music that kept the feet tapping and the hands clapping as the sagas of unrequited love poured out.
Brian Lynam, looking cool in a pale suit with 3 buttoned jacket and a windsor knotted red and yellow striped tie complete with gold pin, is one wild harpist bending, chording, growling and producing unbelievable sounds from an 8 hole vamper or a 12 hole chromatic. Scotswood Slim, as he is also known, hollers the blues like as though he was born on North Clark Street.
On bass, Beefy Le Slap also shouted some blues as well as slapping the guts out of an unusual bull fiddle (really wide f holes).
Guitarist Pete thrashed out the twelves in every conceivable form and did everything but duckwalk a la Chuck.
On drums, Nat The Shuffle kept it all pulsating and never, noticeably, missed a beat.
This is a band that has got it all together.
Lance.
