I have in my collection somewhere a concert recorded from the BBC of, (if I remember correctly), Red Noise. As I say I cannot be certain as it might be a Be Bop Deluxe concert. So I need some help please! Bill on introducing; (I think) Out of Touch; (hence me thinking it is Red Noise) comes up with the words, 'Sputum Cups at the Ready'. I want to find this recording which is probably on a cassette in my store room so I can get it converted for play from my server, but could do with a few more clues before I go hunting; i.e. is it Red Noise and if so were the words said before Out of Touch? Does anyone else remember this? I know there is a BBC Radio 1 Friday Rock Show session (17 February 1979) on the latest version of Sound on Sound that includes Out of Touch, but I haven't got this CD to hand to play and check if it is the same track.
The guys are very enthusiastic and complimentary about Bill and his playing and writing and both offer their respective top 10 favourite Be Bop tracks. It's probably not one of the most fluent presentations, but I think their love for Bill's musicianship is definitely genuine, and it's worth a watch...and it's nice to see Bill continue to get increasing exposure, with genuine fans like this, especially Pete Pardo, showing their respect and love for Bill and 'spreading the word'..no matter how late, it's bound to pick up new fans and to be fair, Bill's prolific work as a solo artist after the bright lights of BBD, does get mentioned....and, no 'Ships in the Night'!😉 I also think it's nice and definitely worthwhile cataloguing all such Bill related things, here on the forum.
