Hey! I’m still alive. No particularly good reason for the long silence, but I can assure you I’ve been working on the book each and every day – the end is in sight! And of course, I’ve been on a few little tours with our Albanian group, Saz’iso (standing beside the sound man and kibitzing, […]

Saturday Knowledge in East London

Do you any of you live east of Camden Town in London? You can enjoy a hearty Dalston breakfast this coming Saturday (Nov 18th) at an event I’m taking part in called “Porridge and Knowledge”. I’m going to talk there, probably about Nick Drake and how I like to produce records. There’s also music from […]

Saz’iso On Jools!

A big week for Southern Albanian music! Saz’iso will perform tomorrow night (Tuesday 31st October) on Later with Jools Holland – 10pm on BBC2. Then again, a different tune on the longer version Saturday at 1045. The Saturday appearance will come just after the end of the sold-out London concert at St Luke’s, which is […]

Saz’iso: At Least Wave Your Handkerchief At Me

As promised, here’s an update on the Albanian record I told you about last year (and badgered you for Kickstarter contributions to fund it). We (my wife and co-producer Andrea Goertler and our partner-in-music Edit Pula) raised the money – thanks to many of you – and recorded it in Tirana last autumn. It was […]

The Official Edinburgh Incredible String Festival

Some of you may have heard me bemoan the post-Sixties fate of the Incredible String Band – renowned and successful for about five years, their fame declined as the Seventies dawned. One fateful moment occurred Friday night at the Woodstock Festival when rain led them to postpone their appearance to the following afternoon; by then […]

American Epic Sessions

Some of you may recall some time ago when I raved about seeing a screening of a film called ‘American Epic Sessions’. It’s finally arriving on UK screens this Sunday evening at 10 pm and for the next four weeks. In the US, it began this past Tuesday and will continue for the next three Tuesdays on PBS. (Not sure how […]

The Albert Hall’s Summer of Love

It’s been a while, hasn’t it? I plead travel and work keeping me busy and under the radar. But I’m about to surface. This Saturday, I will be a guest on Loose Ends (Radio Four 1815 and BBC iPlayer thereafter – http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b08n1ybh) talking about the Sixties and various related up-coming events. For example, on Tuesday […]

You say you want a revolution?

Sixties Weekend at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. Nigel Waymouth and I “in conversation” at noon on Sunday. Free admission! Then I introduce the film “Performance” at 2pm – also free; first come, first served. A few days ago, an Albanian journalist wanted to know how I connected producing Pink Floyd at the […]

But I keep getting great feedback and numbers keep climbing, so there’s no stopping them. Besides, I enjoy doing them… The coming week sees a few public manifestations of the “Podcast […]
