Music Diary #31 – 2nd February 2012 – and World of Jazz

The global entertainment world that emerges from the canal side developments a few miles south of here is embracing all with two of our own featuring in Frank Black and Violet Clark’s new electro-funk work-out “Silver Girls” under the Grand Duchy  brand. Spot Mr Archer and Ms Middleton of this parish desporting amongst the Warholian excess in this glittering vid-chip

Rocketeer  a band from the West Country “all trained classical musicians” deliver a 10cc esque piece of expertly played pop called “Cupid” – great lyrics and well arranged but perhaps a tad too retro to catch the ear of the kids. It grows on me with each play.

The Lazy Maybees Manchester based four piece who play an engaging brand of acoustic rock are worth a listen – check their Facebook page for some interesting acoustic sessions – bit of an African feel to some of the guitar playing/tuneage in a similar way that 10,000 Maniacs used to that sort of thing. They seem to gig on the north side of the conurbation a lot and mostly in pubs which can’t be a bad thing.
