Not sure if you're aware that '31 Days' was Shogun's 2nd album. There was a s/t album issued the year before in '86. Should you not have heard it, it's on youtube at the link below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MNbXmdwzujQ My interest in them at the time was as a result of Chinatown's Danny Gwilym being in the band, rather than the link with Tokyo Blade, and I saw them play a gig at the

Also saw them support Honeymoon Suite on the Racing After Midnight tour, outdoor at Canada's Wonderland. Also a few years later in Toronto, when they headlined and were supported by Harem Scarem, before Mood Swings was released. Of Haywire's albums, I particularly enjoy 'Don't Just Stand There' and 'Nuthouse'. Interested to see what they can come up with in 2016.

Agree regarding Rise. I still play it frequently, excellent album. I hope they achieve the amount required for Heterotopia, though its currently looking unlikely.

I enjoy the debut, but agree with Carl that Clear Approach is better. Love Thom Griffin's vocals, and each of the songs. Also, the 5 tracks they've released intermittently over the past few years are excellent. Wish they'd be able to speed up the process and record a full album. Great music though, which can be listened to at the link below. http://www.trillion-music.us/index.htm

Very sad news, RIP. Guitarist on the classic Airborne album, maybe my favourite of all time.

I've always thought that there's also some great tracks on "There for None to See", the album they were promoting when I first saw them play live.

I was at the Resonance Festival (prog rock) 18 months ago at the Bedford pub in Balham, London. John Mitchell played an enjoyable set early on Friday evening and towards the end invited Nathan James onto the stage. He then sang what I thought was an excellent version of Gethsemane from Jesus Christ Superstar. I was certainly very impressed. Having said that, I agree with much of what has been

After mentioning Company of Strangers I found this on youtube from 2014; BELIEVE by Simon Hussey and Jef Scott (from Company Of Strangers) The first single off the new album " THE MONO PILOTS". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-EiG2Z2xomw I'm not sure what happened to "The Mono Pilots" album.

It's a great album. Remember seeing James Reyne play an acoustic gig at the Borderline in London some time after this. Thought it a shame that Company of Strangers never released more music. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gq4faxQN9dE

I've always enjoyed Pilot's music, & David Paton's vocals in particular. My favourite album of theirs is Morin Heights, which included the track below (Canada): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lC1y4TAV1Pc Also enjoyed his vocals on the 2 albums by Japanese band Beagle Hat, particularly the 1st one "Magical Hat" released in 2006. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5keIiSl-VkU

Saw them once, at the Marquee in London, when they were promoting "Listen Like Thieves". Recall it being excellent, and they were a great live band. Enjoyed their albums up to "Kick", less so their later albums. I'll have to revisit "Elegantly Wasted" given the comments above.

I remember buying a few of their albums, Attitudes as mentioned being the best, but I can't claim to have listened to any of them for years. Will have to have another listen some time. The one track I have returned to is "Room in Your Life" from "V". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TY89ikL7d3I

Great band. Saw them support Saga in London, & then play a smaller gig a few years later. Would be good if there's more new music to come from them.

Russia & Force 10 are both excellent, & quirky at times. Russia is the better of the two for me.

In my experience "professional" is usually any camera with a detachable lens, failing to distinguish between professional and enthusiast. A relaxed approach as before would be welcome, though I've no idea if this will be the case.

Mick Wilson currently in 10CC was on percussion & backing vocals, and Iain Hornal, who's also been playing with Graham Gouldman, was also on backing vocals. Below is a link to an excellent track from Iain's old band which was sadly never released. https://myspace.com/thegeniusband/music/song/everybody-needs-a-helping-hand-24927065-24728250

Bookmarks has some great songs, but I find its predecessor Slice a bit more consistent throughout. I may just need to live with Bookmarks for longer. Have enjoyed all their albums though.

Keith was excellent when I saw him with 7th Heaven in Chicago a couple of years ago. Looking forward to seeing him play at the Water Rats in London while he's over here.

Great gig. A couple of other tracks I'd rather have heard, but that's trivial given the chance to see them play in London. There was a great atmosphere there.

Great shame. Was looking forward to seeing him in Gravesend & Camden. Damo seemed to have put great effort into bring RT over.
