Awriiight?!

Being the big Dr. Feelgood fans that we are we decided it was high time we took a trip down to Canvey Island. First we picked up a hardcase from a Canvey local who was also schooled by the guitar weilding maniac Wilko Johnson of aforementioned band. Lucky bloke! We had ourselves some local cuisine in the form of pie and mash then set off to see the sights. 

Canvey Island is pretty much a floating time warp. Locals seem to either loiter by the derelict amusement park or compulsively ram shrapnel into the knackered old penny arcades. After a few photos we hightailed it outta there and went down by the jetty.


The infamous jetty does have a sort of grim charm to it. You look out onto the swampy thames delta and see a vast backdrop of industrial wasteland.  

Canvey and it’s residents are similar to that of the feelgood’s music. They like what they like and whilst everywhere else around them is trying to keep up with the next big thing, they seem content with what they have. So hey, who are we to judge? A lick or two of paint and a rubbish collection could go a long way though folks. Just a suggestion. 

We came, we saw and most importantly, we left! Thanks for having us. Till next time.

Peace, love and Canvey Island.

Matthew and Reid

I’m sitting here at my desk as one of Tom Waits’s many masterpieces MULE VARIATIONS washes over me like a beautiful unpolished bath.  I have been back off tour for a while now and and gearing up for Christmas and all the entanglements it will impose (IF ANY OF YOU ARE WONDERING I WOULD LIKE A PONY PLEASE). 

I was touring for a week supporting Marcus Foster and over the week we dropped in on Cambridge, Nottingham, Manchester, Stroud, Bristol and last but by no means least Birmingham. We also did a show at London’s Dingwalls which was a great night for me as I did a solo show and then sped of to the Cuckoo Club to do a show with the guys (Treetops) for renowned songwriter Guy Chambers. 

As is often the case on tour I met a broad spectrum of music lovers of all ages and as always a few nutters.  I saw some great scenery and came away with several albums in my head from hours spent in the van between cities. To name a few, TOM WAITS ‘MULE VARIATIONS’ (Just perfect) ELLIOT SMITH ‘FIGURE 8’ (Amazing production  I won’t be putting this down for a while), BEACH BOYS ‘BEST OF’ (How can you ever feel bad when this is playing), REM ‘OUT OF TIME’ (Who would win in a fight?  Michael Stipe or Thom Yorke?)

And last but not least…. The 1990 forgotten treasure, The SYNTHESIZER ALBUM  

 YES you may say I have changed and abandoned any credibility I may have mustered but please let me explain..  I had a dream one night on tour and it took me back to age ten when I bought this record on casette  I do not know why but the dream brought it all back to me and I had to find a copy of this monstrosity.

The record features such classics as AUTOBAHN, CROCKETT’S THEME and the sublime EVE OF THE WAR (War of the worlds).  It says on the cover a big thanks to ROLAND UK..I BEG TO DIFFER.  This album is a misguided experiment in new technology and was proudly recorded live to DAT. Hmmm. Produced arranged and performed by Chris Cozens and Nick Magnus. Where are they now? Anyone? I challenge you people out there to air your dirty musical laundry with me.  

What’s in your closet? This album makes me shiver with disgust but its still spinning as I write and I know my girlfriend is gonna love it….
