No ... unfortunately not ... we have friends over from France for the weekend ... wish I was going though as Matt never fails to put on a good show and I haven't seen Mick Taylor since I saw him with the Stones in the early 70's ... look forward to your review and pix ...

Blue is the colour,
Football is the game....

I feel like I've been to Stamford Bridge more often lately than some of their fans!

I wouldn't mind going more often though! Under The Bridge is a heck of an addition to the London music scene. If you like paint peeling off the walls, the smell of stale beer and urine, and humid, sweaty atmosphere, you'll hate it! For a 500-capacity venue though, I'd back it over some of the more central venues.

So what about Mick Taylor? There were two support acts - the first being a so-so acoustic duo whose names I missed. Then the ever-dependable Matt Schofield Trio. I think I must have seen Matt more than any other act in the last ten years and he never disappoints.

Mick and band shuffled onstage looking every substantial waist-inch the Pub Rock veterans. Mick kept his technician (or was it his valet?) busy with deliveries of beer, his forgotten slide, a stool and various sundries. It didn't bode well that Mick forgot the words to the opening song (apologies if the lyrics actually do include "La la la, dee dee dee") and it was all a little shambolic. Was there even a set list? It all seemed a little bit off the cuff.

Mick's playing was a little tentative and sloppy too, I thought, but the rest of the band including the evergreen Max Middleton on Fender Rhodes and the underused Hamish Stuart on guitar were fortunately spot-on.

Mick is evidently in some pain (from his back?) and called upon the afore-mentioned stool and sat awkwardly on the drum riser for a time. Things actually took a big turn for the better around then as Mick got into a looser jam mode. The encore was No Expectations from Beggars' Banquet (more liberties with the lyrics, I thought) and there was no guests.

All in all, another jolly spiffing night out in Chelsea, yah!

Anyone been to one of the UK gigs of Ian Siegal & The Mississippi Mudbloods (= Luther and Cody Dickinson from NMAS + Alvin Youngblood Hart)? I saw the Belgium club date last monday before they returned to the UK. An absolutely fantastic band. A whopping 2 hours and 10 minutes of pure joy and skills. Can't wait for their CD coming out in oktober.

Saw the Mississippi Mudbloods in Sevenoaks tonight.

Ian Siegal, Cody and Luther Dickinson, and Alvin Youngblood Hart. LD and AYH swapped guitar and bass duties.

The sound in the venue wasn't great but the overall feel was very dense, swampy blues with oodles of slide guitar by LD and IS. I'm not a huge Siegal fan but I'd say this is the best setting I've seen him in.

Recommended.

They continue at Amstelveen (29/6), Enschede (30/6), Verviers (2/7), London O2 Academy Islington (4/7), Newcastle Cluny (5/7), The Met, Bury (6/7) and Burton Agnes Jazz Festival (7/7).

I saw Ian Siegal & The Mississippi Mudbloods at the Islington Academy gig last Wednesday, and it was excellent. Siegal obviously leads the band, and it is mainly his songs (from The Skinny album and his upcoming Candy Store Kid album) with fine contributions from the other three members. AYH and Luther shared alternating bass and lead guitar duties throughout, with both getting a chance to shine whilst soloing, Luther winning out, if it were a competiton, but i just love Alvin, such a presence. Both Luther and Alvin sang one track each, and it was a two hour set of hill country Blues. The whole band looked to be having a blast, the crowd went for them completely and it was a really fun night. If you get the chance to see them don't miss out. I was with two other family members one of whom isn't a big Siegal fan, but he said he thoroughly enjoyed the music, and we all agreed it was a better night than previous evening when we caught the Mule in Manchester. The Mule were good, but we have all seen them better. (whispers) I wish they'd go back to a three piece, with the removal of Danny, his solo on Thorazine Shuffle was possibly the worst keyboard solo i have ever heard. Nothing against him personally, i just want to hear more of Warren and Jorgen, and less from Mr Louis.

Although I enjoyed the Mudbloods gig in Newcastle, I did think it was way too much Siegal and not enough Dickinson/Youngbllood Hart. Siegal has a few good songs (The Train, was it) and some average ones IMO. I don't see the point in getting a band together with those guys and not fully utilising them! I was amazed that Siegal had the brass neck to dominate proceedings the way he did. Just my opinion of course.

I'll try to get there, Jules.

Any idea what the other bands on the bill are like, genre-wise?

This from the facebook event:

Kicking off the Olympic month of August, we have the debut show from ANDRO. Song by song, he'll slide his way through musical genres from Dramatic Pop to Rock to Soul, Funk and Electro. We then bring you SANDHAUS. About to release their debut album titled 'The Getaway', they are currently working with Mike Marsh who worked with Depeche Mode, Phoenix and the xx. Former resident of our sister night, TV Nights and current Burberry star ROO PANES will then take to the stage with his stunning brand of folk which intertwines the best of the genre from England, Ireland and the States. SEA STACKS then take over. This 8 piece was the creation of Davy Berryman. Combining orchestral instrumentations to create wind and string-strafed indie music that takes influence from Jonsi/Sigur Rs and Sufjan Stevens, amongst others. Starting in late June 2011 with just a handful of songs and a studio, Davy set out with only one rule, mostly unbroken; that there would be no guitars or pianos used. Seven months, 3 studios, and nearly 40 collaborators later and Sea Stacks was ready. Closing the live portion of the night, we then have the brilliant WILD ROCK DOVES, a new on the scene London based 5 piece with their roots in blues and southern rock but also bring in elements of jazz, and country music.

I'm not familiar with any of them but it looks like an interesting lineup!

Going to be tough to get to RSB having been made redundant, and already committed to Mark Kozelek at Union Chapel and Ryan Bingham in Bristol that same week.

Thanks for the good wishes, guys. New horizons beckon and happy to be moving on. Time was right for a change. Can't see me being on same money ever again, but as long as the bills get paid and we get by with enough to treat ourselves occasionally, that'll be just fine.

But London midweek gigs will be very curtailed as there is no way I'll have the freedom that I had in my previous job to work flexibly.
