Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:06pm Brain in UK:

Hello Georgy.
Is there better Shadows track than Foot Tapper?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:06pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I still have the other half of this interview so I may very well do a Part Two :-)
Avatar 3:07pm Paper Kosmonaut:

HI there. I Will mainly be listening, not in a talkative mood. Bit stressed out, really. Brian Bennett however is very much worth listening.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:07pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hello Brian, my lovely! How's the new pup settling in? :-) She's so gorgeous!! <3
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 3:07pm MHLee:

@Mike, you know me. I'll be there as I figure out my playlist for tonight
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 3:07pm Phillippe:

Hey Mike! I was watching a program a couple weeks ago about nightlife in Japan, and for some strange reason, I half expected to see your name in the credits
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:07pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@PK - Hello, my lovely!! Many many hugs to you <3
Avatar 3:08pm Paper Kosmonaut:

Thanks, GG.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:09pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

David in LO!!! Hello my lovely one! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:09pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Genuinely fascinating interview :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:10pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Plus it's nice to give my voice a break every now and then :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:11pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

LLike I said at the top of the chat, three of today's songs are duplicated (different track names on different albums) BUT I really liked them so I doubled up ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:12pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Mike - How's the heat situation?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:12pm Mr Fab:

apart from the groovy choons, its also nice to hear from the brain of Brian.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 3:13pm David (in London):

I love that as a way to kick start your musical career - "I went down to Ramsgate".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:13pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi Mr Fab! Absolutely! He was at the start of British rock and roll and then became a self-taught composer. :-) Fascinating life!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:13pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@David in LO - Lol! ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:14pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@David in LO - This is clearly where I've been going wrong. I need to get down to Ramsgate!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:14pm Mr Fab:

And if he came up with the title "A Journey Into Discoid Funk" I'm even more impressed!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:14pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Mr Fab - I think he did :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:15pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Vince Taylor - who Bowie adored and who ended up being the inspiration for Ziggy Stardust :-)
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 3:15pm Rich in Washington:

This is fascinating, GG!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 3:15pm David (in London):

Meet you there, GG!

Bit of background on Vince Taylor :-)

Hello lovely Rich! It's a great interview, isn't it? :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:16pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

  3:17pm flannery:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm Mr Fab:

Yeah, i have an album by Vince Taylor. he also mentions Marty Wilde (Kim's dad), semi-Beatle Tony Sheridan, Lord Rpckingham XI... this guy really got around.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Brian Bennett was also best friends with Alan Hawkshaw and they made lots of library music together
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:18pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hello lovely flannery!! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:18pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Mr Fab - The entire interview is about an hour long but I wish it was longer :-)

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:19pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Brian - Wasn't there a documentary about that?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Mike - That's a fabulous achievement! You should be very proud :-)
Avatar 3:20pm Mike Rogers:

It had been difficult sometimes.

Our very own Barman's father-in-law, that Marty Wilde ;-)
Avatar 3:22pm worldsworstrecords:

Mum and Dad, obvs!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23pm Brain in UK:

£25 in '56 was good money.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I *think* that Bruton basically lifted the majority of the Voyage album and just repackaged it as Fantasia two years later ;-)
  3:23pm flannery:

congrats mike!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:24pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Brian - Wait til he joins The Shadows! ;-)
Avatar 3:24pm worldsworstrecords:

£25 and ten bob
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:24pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I wonder how much that would be in today's money?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:25pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

£553 apparently!!
Avatar 3:26pm worldsworstrecords:

About £550 a week today, GG
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

No wonder he was excited!!
Avatar 3:26pm worldsworstrecords:

LOL! Jinx!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Darryl - Are you on the same online calculator as I am? ;-)
Avatar 3:27pm worldsworstrecords:

prolly!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:27pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Lol!
Avatar 3:27pm Paper Kosmonaut:

really cool tunes, GG.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Thank you, PK! <3 I hope they're helping the stress levels <3
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm Brain in UK:

I can see that Humber Super Snipe travelling done the Western Avenue past the Hoover building.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Brian - Oh yes! :-) Complete with slacks and a relaxed shoe ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29pm Brain in UK:

Mr Parnes shillings & pence.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29pm Mr Fab:

I looked up his teacher Bruce Gaylor - he was apparently down with Buddy Rich, no less. Oh, and another of his British drumming students? A fella you may have heard named...Carl Palmer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:30pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Brian - That's a phrase I haven't heard in a while :-)
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 3:30pm David (in London):

That's a drive I've done many a time Brian.
Also: hello.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:30pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Mr Fab - That's impressive!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

This list of names is staggering!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31pm Brain in UK:

David, me too. Countless number of times.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:32pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I'm getting my space disco fix :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:32pm Brain in UK:

Funky Kraftwerk Lite.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:33pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Brian - We are the London Robots ;-)
Avatar 3:34pm spacebrother:

Sounds a little like funky John Carpenter.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:34pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi Greg!! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I just looked it up - Bruton re-released "Voyage" in a library format. There you go. Ah well. Enjoy some repeats of top tunes ;-)
Avatar 3:35pm spacebrother:

Hello!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm Mr Fab:

my jaw dropped when he just casually mentions playin for Eddie Cochran and Gene Vincent.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Because if you liked the last track, you'll LOVE this one ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Mr Fab - Right?? Talk about right place at the right time!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I find it fascinating that the UK musicians and the US musicians were doing different techniques. Being a non-musician that kind of stuff is wonderful to me
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Ironic that it's called "Cloning" ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39pm Brain in UK:

My thoughts too.
  3:41pm David in London:

That’s a splendiferous bassline.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@David in LO - Proper rumbling one!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:43pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I love that he learned all of this via correspondence course!
Avatar 3:43pm Mike Rogers:

did he say "Joe Meek?"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm Brain in UK:

...and those sort of people. Name name me three Joe Meeks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Mike - Yep! He really did know tons of amazing people!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Brian - Exactly!!! Lol
Avatar 3:44pm Mike Rogers:

Wow!
Avatar 3:45pm spacebrother:

This still sounds like funky John Carpenter to me!
Avatar 3:45pm spacebrother:

OK DISCO John C.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Marty Wilde, Wee Willie Harris, The Shadows, Larry Parnes, Tony Sheridan, Joe Meek, Eddie Cochran, Gene Vincent, Vince Taylor ... the list goes on!
Avatar 3:45pm spacebrother:

Shows how much I know.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Greg - This whole album is fantastic!! :-)
Avatar 3:46pm spacebrother:

I do like it.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm Mr Fab:

he's only just joined the Shadow's and the show's over?! The crowd is chanting: Part 2! Part 2!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52pm flannery:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:53pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

There you go - I've scheduled Part Two for the 23rd :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:53pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:53pm Brain in UK:

This must be the cheapest show on record!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:55pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I've just worked out that he was on about £55,000 a year in The Shadows
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:55pm DJ GeorgyGirl:
