Just some pictures from a week ago when I went to see Deerful at the Shackleton Arms.
A happy birthday to the 5th Doctor. I think he was a very good Doctor actually, and whilst I didn’t watch all of his episodes, I’ve very much enjoyed his stuff on Big Finish, so it was very nice of them to put some of his stuff on sale for the weekend, and I picked up a few new stories.
It’s good to hear that Neil Arthur is doing even more music. Hot on the heals of the latest Blancmange album ‘Commuter 23’ (I’m still listening to it and thinking about how I feel about it), he’s into a new musical exploit called ‘Near Future’. I just missed out on getting a signed CD of their first single, which was annoying. Never mind. I’ll have to wait for it to come out later in the month.
I’ve been a fan of Heaven 17 for years and years, and I’ve really enjoyed their recent shows but it does make me think of a few things, one of which is, whatever happened to Ian Craig Marsh? He was a big part of Heaven 17 and of course The Human League before that, but now, according to Wikipedia, he’s a music teacher. No more information than that.
That’s fine, but a shame for fans on H17.
The voice of Lady Penelope in the Thunderbirds. She was excellent and a part of the team that brought us so many amazing things like Thunderbirds, Stingray, UFO, Space 1999. She will be missed but has left such a legacy. All the more reason to look forward to the three new episodes of Thunderbirds coming soon.
“Tender Extinction” comes out on the 8th of April on Bandcamp! I’m really pleased. This is awesome news! His last solo album, was years and years ago, so this is brilliant. I’m really looking forward to it.
