Bebop Spoken There

Ed Palermo: "[Frank] Zappa's humor was very rarely self-deprecating, and mine is almost always self-deprecating. The beauty of it is that no one gets hurt." - (DownBeat February, 2021)

Help!

Despite the so-called easing of the lockdown restrictions the music scene hasn't really benefited from it. I'm not going into the greasy pot of how much money is, or rather isn't, going into the arts/culture - call it what you will - sector compared to other countries as there is plenty activity in that direction on Facebook including opportunities to mail your MP so that he or she may throw their weight behind it.


No, what I'm getting at is that, although there ain't no gigs to go, there are so many livestreams, watch parties etc being streamed that the BSH team is stretched to the limit to cover even a small percentage of them which is where we need your help.

Next time you go on line to watch some guy/gal singing or playing. Tell us about it. Or, if you have fond/or otherwise memories of a gig or an album from way back, write about it. Doesn't matter whether it's a one-liner or an unabridged version of War and Peace (preferably somewhere in between) we want to post it.

Please,
Lance
