YEOVIL NITE-LIFE

Wow. Spoilt for choice this weekend. We've got some top entertainment coming atcha....

Chas and Dave are playing The Chilthorne Domer Parish Party. Not the first time the Essex Pies 'n' Eels boys have forced themselves on us (so to speak): There's a photo of them up in one of the local Indian restaurants mugging for the camera with a group of Asian waiters behind them gurning and doing 'bunny ears', etc.

The Wurzels are playing North Perrott Cricket Club (tomorrow night, I think). Actually, it would be a bigger deal round these parts if they weren't playing somewhere or other. Goes without saying that The Wurzels are the best-selling act 'round South Somerset: 900+ CDs sold in Acorn Records over the last couple years. Chris Lowe can supply the actual retail figures, titles, etc.

The Strawbs are playing South Petherton (Farmer Glitch: "Gerroff my lannnd, you buggers!") pretty soonish. But, unfortunately, this is a three-piece accoustic set-up...forget Wakeman and I don't care if Dave Cousins is in the line-up, either...Call me a purist, but: The Strawbs without Hudson-Ford ("Burn, baby, burn! When ya gonna learn...it's time to put out the fire...!") just aren't the fucking Strawbs. How do these blinking imposters even sleep at night?

I'm tellin' ya...I loved Hudson-Ford: Eco-Folk-Rock with synths. I had a Hudson-Ford bootleg once. A tape. No, really. Now where did I put it...?

Hudson-Ford: Yeah!

the kickin' Yeovil scene has obviously gone way downhill since i lived there...I mean, we had such musical legends as Poke it with a stick, Automatic Dlamini, Persona non grata, Blyth Power, the Carnations (later the even worse name of The Beat Hotel) and, er, Kickstate...

Mmm...

Wonder what happened to those fellows?

I gather the Wurzels pulled out 'cos of licensing problems.....
