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.

Share Invitation from Pink Lane Jazz Co-operative

We are inviting music lovers throughout the UK to join us in a unique venture – a co-operatively owned live music and jazz education venue.
We are issuing shares to raise money to buy The Globe, a pub and music venue on the west edge of Newcastle city centre.We aim to establish The Globe as the place to go to hear live jazz and other music that is outside the mainstream.  It will be a place where musicians learn, share and develop their skills – a hub for jazz education.  It will be the first music venue to be owned by a co-operative committed to jazz.
We’ve already got promises of nearly half the money we need from two ethical funds.  Now we need to raise £125,500 from individual investors – maybe people like you.
You may invest any sum between £200 and £20,000.  You will become a member of the co-op and can become actively involved in this exciting project if you want to be.  Membership is open to any person (age 16 or over) or organisation that supports the objectives of the co-operative.
You can apply here for shares online or by post using the form on the last page of the share offer document.
