Post subject: Music journeys and ventures for 2012 ! Reply with quote

We all would love some more SPECIALS gigs/events, but what else hopefully has 2012 got for you?

For me so far it would have to be:

The return of KIRK BRANDON from illness, to the live Arena. A unique and passionate voice. Very Happy

The long-awaited PUBLIC IMAGE LIMITED album and Tour. Hopefully as ground-breaking as Metal-box was in its day. Shocked

Anything by FIELDS OF THE NEPHILIM, as the moon and constellation alignments have to be right or Carl McCoy does'nt do anything. Twisted Evil

REBELLION FESTIVAL to be better than ever. Cool

To see U.K SUBS perform album X ! (Alphabet nearly finished!!!!) Razz

To discover [b]NEW TALENT[/b] that makes me want to 'Go Mental' Wink

Also to top it all off, to have a brilliant eclectic music party for my 50th in October, covering every bloody music genre thats meant something to me in my life! Idea

Jon Anderson to re-join Yes for farewell world tour Very Happy

Kate Bush to do some long awaited shows.

4 days of sunshine at Isle of Wight Festival.

That'll do me. Very Happy

I'm looking forward to the new Madness album. Plus new albums from The Dualers (a Prince Buster tribute) and a new Phoenix City All-stars album. Hopefully there be a full new album from Neol Davies. The first new recording I've heard sound great.

I didn't know PIL were making a new album, but will look forward to that with high hopes.

On the live front I'm looking forward to The Caroloregians coming to the UK in March and Dave and Ansell Collins coming back in August 2012.

And of course the London Intl Ska Fest 2012. Very Happy

Its made and ready for release. If the Live gigs from this year were to go by, then with Lu Edmunds creative music making, this should be a very interesting listen. Release is early spring. Recorded in the Cotwolds (with extra Country Life?).

For those interested in KIRK BRANDONs recovery from illness, SPEAR OF DESTINY will be supporting STIFF LITTLE FINGERS on tour in March. Get there early!

I wouldn't bank on Kate Bush making any live appearances, so we'll probably have to make do with these:
