Andy’s Mike Oldfield revival!

Tuesday, January 27th, 2015

I’ve renewed my interest in listening to Mike Oldfield again…so I’ve started off with

First

tubular_bells_2003_cd_front_cover

Mike Oldfield – Tubular Bells 2003

You will notice Mike Oldfield, has been removed from the cover of the 2003 edition, and it’s been re-worked, as Mike Oldfield, was unhappy with the original 1973 recording, stating it was rushed and out of tune!

Second

Mike Oldfield – Hergest Ridge

This is the 2000 Digitally Remastered edition.

Third

mike-oldfield-ommadawn-front

Mike Oldfield – Ommadawn

Me and Midge Ure - Dancing With Tears In My Eyes!

Saturday, February 11th, 2012

I’ve just returned from a excellent, fantastic gig by Midge Ure, at Pocklington Arts Centre. A brilliant gig of all his great songs, and especially a fantastic rendition of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars.

Dancing With Tears In My Eyes - so very true due to recent events!

Andy and Midge Ure, Pocklington Arts Centre, 10th Feb 2012

Not to put a downer on the event, the gig was fantastic, but to be honest and truthful I did have tears in my eyes, and found it difficult to hold them back when meeting Midge this evening. (due to recent events!). A very emotional evening.

Midge did comment “that he does write bloody miserable songs!” and wished us all the best.

A truly sureal moment, growing up in the 80s and listening to Midge Ure/Ultravox and then to meet Midge in person.

Thanks to Midge, Berenice (and my Dad!)

“a night I’ll not forget!” - Andy

Marina and the Diamonds, Leeds University 5th November 2010

Saturday, November 6th, 2010

Another fanastic concert by Marina and her band. The University union gig was packed in like sardines in a can. A cross section of the public from teenagers to Mums and Dads escorting their children, or Mum’s escorting their children! (got to be careful what I write, as there’s children reading the blog!).

This video is also available in HD, as it was shot in HD, on a Cisco Flip HD! Just change the you tube options, if you’ve got the bandwidth!

Bootleg DVDs available of the Marina and the Diamonds, Leeds University 5th November 2010 ‘Burger Queen Tour’ gig at a £5 donation towards DVD and p&p (UK), and electricity required to transcode and burn the DVDs!

Are You Satisified with an average life?

Tuesday, June 1st, 2010

Are you satisfied with an average life ?
Do I need to lie to make my way in life ?

from the Song - Are You Satisified? - Marina & The Diamonds

Marina & The Diamonds@Leeds Met 31 May 2010 - A few videos

the sounds quality is appalling because the high volume from the PA at the gig overloaded the camera’s internal microphone. but here are a few videos captured live at Leeds Met on the evening of 31 May 2010.

But the Gig was FAB! Thanks Marina!

Outsider and I Am Not A Robot

Oh No

Numb and Obsessions

still on a high, but must try and get some zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…..
