    Ed Rogerson Culturally irrelevant

    But you get John Goodsall and Percy Jones from the good old days, so some compensation!

    Would be good for his cred, and our ears.

    Simply Love his bass playing on the ENO Another Green World, Before an After Science, and Music for Films. LPS

    Gonna play them now. Then dig out 'Moroccan Roll ' later. (That title always made me giggle as a stoner teen)

    Sadly Phil is pretty frail these days and has suffered as a result of so many hours on a drum stool.

    That's sad to hear.

    Nothing like as many hours as Charlie Watts has clocked up

    Phil had to sit down to sing on his last tour.
    People knock him but he's still one of the best drummers of all time IMO.
    Hes got millions in the bank but I bet he would give loads away just to be able to sit behind and play a kit again.

    Charlie is a classic jazz drummer .
    Many kids today that want to learn should watch him.
    He's never played big kits that need lots of arm work.
    Just simple 4 & 5 drum kits he grew up playing.
    I've watched Charlie at close range for years and he still makes what he does look so relaxed and easy.
    It's not.

    So, I have Maques and Moroccan Roll. Especially like the latter, so what other albums of theirs should I hear?

    IMHO 'Unorthodox Behaviour' is their best (for 'Nuclear Burn') is a classic, followed by 'Moroccan Roll' and 'Masques'. The only other ones worth checking out are 'Livestock' and 'Product' - the later stuff with Phil Collins only making an occasional contribution aren't as good.

    Oh that's interesting, thanks for posting. I saw them years ago at the jazz cafe and they were fantastic.(maybe '91?) I remember being disappointed that Phil Collins wasn't drumming at first but it turned out that the guy on drums that night was flipping awesome. (not sure who is was)

    I really like Livestock. Especially "-ish"

    Love it when bands advertise UK tours and just do England. Then for some reason they have a Dutch gig?

    Do they know something we don't lol.

    Hopefully more 'UK' dates announced soon

    Just found out they're playing near me in Scotland, tickets for sale just now, strange it's not on that list.

    Holland East and West Germany have always had shite taste in live music .
    Don't mention the war.

    I saw Brand X at the London School of Economics, where I was student, in about 1976. The small theatre-style venue wasn't full. I was turned onto them by a flatmate who was into fusion and jazz. They weren't bad. Oddly enough I walked out thinking what a great drummer Phil Collins is. This was before he inflicted In The Air Tonight on the world.
