Just uploaded a new journal entry. I think you'll find this one interesting. Three images attached too so remember to scroll down to see them all. 😉

With regards to the photo' in the Journal entry of that early version of Be Bop Deluxe by the now-transformed location of the Ings 'tucks' shop, do you remember what colours your housecoat was? Seems quite a complex pattern on that!


Also I thought maybe the shoes were the same ones seen in the photo' from 1976 in Washington with the wristwatch and telly but I guess not.


Not all THAT different, though, really, those shoes.


Cool styles, either way.





Memorable photographs both .


Was jealous of kids with shoes like that in 1976 when I was a little kid. Did somehow manage to obtain a pair of Beatle boots around that age, though.


My guess is you had Beatle boots some ten years previous, in the '60s ?





Cool photo, similar to the 'No Freaks' photo that you used on the flyers. Was this from the same shoot ?

At what point did Richard Brown join , are there any photos with Richard in the line up ?

Nick always reminds me of Arthur Brown with the beard and make-up . What's in the case ? Banjo ? Thompsons sub-macine gun ? I remember as a child being rather alarmed by seeing a 'Ziggy' style individual on the Springs in Wakefield hmmm.... i wonder. ;-)

Thanks for that entry...always interesting what you're up to Bill...even though things seem to have been tough lately. You guys were very funkadelic in the early

Since you decided to get Cubase 10, I decided to see what my free Cubase LE 10 version was all about. It came with a audio interface I recently changed to. The download took about a day because I went through, hook your computer up with the ethernet cord if you can and maybe that will make it a faster download. Even when it was all done loading, there was still some kind of confusing Steinberg protocols I had to jump hoops with and had to contact their support. Finally, got it running and, after a bit of "fooling about with it", got some midi tracks working alright...haven't tried audio yet.

Cubase Pro 10 still seems like a very good program from what I've seen and I don't mean to discourage you or any other reader of this. Just hope the transition is somewhat smooth so we can hear some more cool music from you.
