Post subject: Nev plus Kate Bush Reply with quote

Kate Bush seems to be enjoying a bit of a comeback at the moment.
It's interesting seeing her sing "Let It Be" produced by Stock, Faceache & Watemellon way back in 1987...

Nev can be seen singing and dancing with 2 of the Bananarama girls around about 4 minutes 20 seconds

Heheh, looks like he's enjoying himself. I never remembered Nev being involved in Ferry Aid

87 sure was a dodgy year for music. Spotted Simon Bates in that mob, plus Pepsi & Shirlie, Nick Kershaw, Paul King, Mel & Kim, the lad from Hot Chocolate, Nick Kamen off the Levis Ad, and a load of other people I wish I had not remembered. Very Happy

Oh I don't know... 1987 was probably a better year than 2014 ... I think both Errol Brown and Leee John are very talented writer/performers and both very original. I love Chris Difford & Glenn Tilbrook of Squeeze. Ruby Turner, Edwin Starr, Boy George and Andy Bell are good at what they do. I think Garry Bushell organised it which explains why you have 3 page three girls, 2 women from Hi De Hi, Nasty Nick from Eastenders, Anne Diamond and a couple of The Nolans mixed in with Maxi Priest, Nev and Jimmy Pursey!

I wonder who got on with who that day?

According to Wiki the group Working Week were involved - members of that band are now in Jerry's Orchestra - it's a small world

I always associated Working Week with the Special AKA at the time, both introduced me to other styles of music that I wasn't familar with but have stuck with me since...latin jazz etc. Working Week had some great tracks like Venceremos, South Africa and I Thought I'd Never See You Again but then also some average soul influenced stuff which was obviously commercially driven. I first saw Jerry Dammers DJ in 1987 at Club Sandino in Dublin. It was a club that played 'world music' with proceeds going to Nicaraguan support groups. I remember Simon Booth from Working Week DJ-ed at the same club a week or two later, both seemed to be doing the same circuit. Do you know if it's him that's in the Spatial AKA, Harry?

Hi, Larry Stabbins is the guy I was thinking of:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Larry_Stabbins
It says he released a solo album which features members of the orchestra.
I think he got a rave review for it in The London Evening Standard Newspaper recently

Simon Booth has his own band, Afro Celt Sound System, plus does a lot of folk music / World Music type stuff on the side. Always interesting stuff, Paul Weller was involved if my old brain aint playing tricks on me. Maybe that was a dream.

Me too mangeire! Even Matt Bianco, whose 'Half a Minute' I'm still very fond of, helped introduce me to Latin Jazz as a teenager. Working Week I only knew from the Absolute Beginners' soundtrack, and I also first saw Dammers at the Sandino gig in McGonagles in '87, used to have the poster on my wall...

I never really heard anything by Working Week at the time but I did like The Style Council, Sade, Matt Bianco, Fine Young Cannibals and Stan Campbell, thanks to The Special AKA Play at home documentary.

I was also at McGonagles 1987 Smile

I heard Fine Young Cannibals got very drunk in the bar before the awards and decided to play a joke on Matt Bianco but obviously he didn't find it very funny? Smile

For a good cause - but apart from 'Starvation' by the 2 tone allstars which was a great record in its own right, so many charity records sound like that old Coca Cola advert.

On the jazz theme, yes it was interesting to hear at that time. I especially liked 'Paris Match' by The Style Council and Maureen by Sade.
