Agree, David, shouldn't be missed. I'd add Gethsemene to the albums you mentioned, but they've all got great music. A few years ago, during a lull in his gigs over here, I was lucky enough to be in Chicago for his album release gig for 'Hit Me Back. A great night.

I'll be at the Twickenham gig. Would have also tried to get to another one but will be abroad from mid-week. For me, the recent album 'Willow Springs' is his best since my favourite of his 'Last Chance Lounge'. He's great to see live, and always puts so much into his performances.

Thanks - nice review. Great band and Secret World in particular is up there with my favourite songs. It would be great if the new album follows a similar style to Everybody Loves a Happy Ending, though it will just be good to hear some new music from them.

I've been to the shop below a couple of times when visiting Chicago. It's a CD shop upstairs and a rock bar downstairs, with live bands most nights. I'm not sure though that there's anyone playing I'd wish to see in the near future. The shop has plenty of CDs, but is not a specialist rock shop. http://www.reggieslive.com/record-store/

I've always liked the first DSS album, less so the others. Overall though I much preferred Touch's music to DSS.

Agreed, it's an excellent album and one of my favourites this year. Tim Christensen can do little wrong IMO. Love his solo albums (Superior, in particular) & the Damn Crystals album also. Always look forward to whatever he does.

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

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
