    Zep Head
  1. Yep, that's the setlist. What interests me is why W.L.L was moved from encore to before Kashmir? Also, who chose those particular 8 songs? Is that the only possible selection of songs that would fill the allotted time? Songtitles on the screen? So many questions....
  2. Just a brief contribution....I seem to recall that when Montrose started out,their stated intention was to be the American Led Zeppelin.There was some other stuff about Zep playing'American music' and an real American band should be doing what they[iE-Zep] do. Have a listen to that first Montrose record and see if that description/mission statement fits. Caveat-this is just from memory,albeit a strong memory that has been checked a few times.I seem to recall that the whole thing came from a position of respect but there was a definite sense of wanting to knock Zep off their perch,as it were.Ma
  3. Sorry,that should have read Gilad Atzmon and The Orient House Ensemble. But you all knew that anyway. Thanks for being too polite to point out my error. He/they were very good indeed.Beach House on Wednesday.The fun just never stops...
  4. Gilad Azmon tonight and then Beach House on Wednesday.
  5. I saw Acoustic Ladyland in Bristol on Friday night[Nov 12].A superb set of what has been described as 'punk funk jazz'.Not really an adequate description but covers the general approach-intense and dynamic-tight but loose,if you will!!.Not so sure about the 'funk' element ,although there are tunes that develop into pulverising grooves.'Jazz' is easier-all formally-trained musicians from various music colleges ,playing with an utter lack of coolness or detachment.Sweaty,fierce and despite my rambling,very hard to accurately pin down.Wonderful music.
  6. Hmmm,again. For clarity's sake-there are big adverts inThe Metro newspaper which state that RP will be appearing with JA and JC. These are official,O2-logo'd ads,advertising the Rockwell show as a whole and not just RP's part in it.Either the ads are just plain wrong -which is not unthinkable,to be fair-or the identities of at least 2 of his collaborators is a litle more solid that just rumour.I find it hard to believe that I'm the only one who's seen these ads.Indeed ,I suspect there may be loads of lposts mentioning this very thing.The intention of my' ironic' post was to steer the chat away
  7. Oh good,deliberate misunderstanding! I said "they" meaning JA and JC,not referring to a place at all. I live in England.I know where the O2 is,cheers.
  8. Books,the newspaper and stuff on the net.Obviously. Earthly Powers by Anthony Burgess.The Portable atheist,edited and compiled byChristopher Hitchens and Long Player,Goodbye byTravis Elborough.Those are the books,for now. The Guardian in paper form,maybe once or twice a week.Various websites,including Z net, New Economics Foundation,Richard Dawkins.net,Guardian football,Facebook,just once a week for that one,various local news and entertainment sites,and a Led Zep site that I drop in to once in a while..obviously.
  9. Hmmm!! I saw Justin Adams and Juldeh Camara in Bristol yesterday.That's not really relevant to this thread though,is it.. nothing at all to do with this O2 thing,are they?
  10. Yes, I know that's what you were asserting. I also know that you didn't imply,assert,aver,insinuate or in any way at all give anyone any reason to think that you may for a moment believe that Rodney and Co were indeed " the band in question" On a slightly different note;it seems to me that the 'teenage boy' thing is just a bit odd.A huge,pre-punk band,with a predominantly teenage male following?Hmmm!
  11. Good, lovely. The Faces may well be reforming and they may well be doing it with Flea[instead of Ronnie Lane or Tetsu Yamauchi or whoever..] but..do 'we' really think that this is the 'second only to Zep' reformation promised for 2009? Tell you what...I'll keep an eye on the size of venues they play and the ticket demand. I'm sure they'll be fine and super but -and I know this doesn't apply to you,Aquamarine-asserting that 'this is it' doesn't make it fit the description that this thread is based on. Hope you all enjoy Rod and The Lads!!
  12. The Amnesiac by Sam Taylor The North of England Home Service by Gordon Burn Those Feet by David Winner
  13. also try Royal Orleans,Wanton Song and Fool In The Rain.Maybe Custard Pie,too...
  14. Thanks. I'm not really campaigning on anyone's behalf,but I can see what you mean from the general tone of my posts on this topic. Your social engineering/PC comments are apposite too and I agree, for what it's worth. I was really looking for some sort of explanation for this chart,that's all.It seems I've not really got that,as such, but I have seen a lot of very interesting and informative comments here. There are plenty of women I'd put in the chart too,nearly all of whom have been named here by one person or another.Just seems odd that all of those creative people are ignored so completel
  15. The best band I saw last year were The Massive Attack Group,twice. Keeping it 'real' and 'local' as I like to do,means that I can also thoroughly recommend Get The Blessing aka The Blessing. Lovely! On the same 'local'tip' we and I enjoyed Daisy Chapman doing her singing thing. Top pop was also performed byTinariwen,Spiritualized{as always}NeonNeon,The Zutons,Phantom Limb and loads of others too and also.As well. In fact as soon as I press 'send' I'll remember loads more...
