Classic Rock Track of the Day is...The Underfall Yard

Just to set the seal on what has been a Very Good Day for BBT, the title track of our new album has been chosen as track of the day on the Classic Rock website. 

Classic Rock Presents Prog

Last Train, one of the songs from The Underfall Yard is featured on the covermount CD of the new issue of Classic Rock Presents Prog which is out today.

Many thanks to Jim Green who also gave us a mention on the Classic Prog letters' page.

David was interviewed on Total Rock radio at lunchtime today and they also played Last Train and Master James. If I can find a listen again feature, I'll post a link.

Saw Mew

Saw Mew the other day. Decided it was time for Eleanor, my 15 year-old daughter, to experience the beer-stained environment of a student-union gig for the first time, so we headed off to the Bristol concert.

I've often wondered what it would be like to have seen Genesis in '71 or '72, as they delivered their extraordinary shows to committed audiences that were small enough to ensure you could get close to the action, and yet also big enough to feel that you were part of something that had genuine significance.

I think I understand what it would have been like now.

As for Ellie, she turned to me at the end and said that it was, quite simply, the best night of her life.

Jem is back

It seems that our good friend Jem Godfrey has returned to blogging. Jem's blog was a major influence on the development of this one. It's great to have him back.
