Bebop Spoken There

Alan Barnes: "Normally you can cobble a set together with five guys on the back of an envelope over the first pint and it's just fine. Livestreaming isn't like that." - (Jazzwise July 2021)

Stone me! It's a long time since I saw that article! I'll always be grateful to Chris Yates for describing me as the North East's answer to Scott Hamilton - I just hope his tongue wasn't too far into his cheek when he said it........... The drummer on the photo, by the way, is Pete Soulsby, not Joe Elliot, who I was very pleased to meet after 30-odd years when I played one of Paul Edis's lunchtime gigs at the Gala Theatre earlier this year with Roly Veitch and Neil Harland.

Looking at the picture again, which was taken at Biddick Farm Arts Centre in Washington, I am reminded that we took those banners with us when we went to play at the Gottingen Jazz Festival in Germany in late 1978. They were maroon, with gold braiding and the letters SS in gold imprinted. The same as the ceremonial colours of the Waffen SS, apparently. We certainly got a few funny looks and remarks in the late evening, but we just thought it was because the band was so drunk!
