Will be doing that with Anvil tonight
Well Lou and I were at the farewell gig in London at the HMV Forum and it was awesome, 4 bands played and they were all good IMO, Gentlemen's Pistols were up first, then Cressida, then Grand Magus and Finally Cathedral.
Correct me Lou if I have the bands in the wrong order.
It was packed to the rafters and they must have made a fortune as the merch stand was 10 deep nearly all night. I made it away with a Gentlemen's Pistols and a Cathedral t-shirt
Can't believe Cathedral finished off with Utopian Blaster and Witchfinder General was just a perfect finale
Yes my good friend top gig ! I was very sad to hear COMUS had to pull out due to to the singers ill health.....CRESSIDA came in short notice and the crowd were very polite to them. CATHEDRAL put up a very good show...they are so HEAVY !! . We were packed in like sardines....the word got round it was their final performance and people had travelled far to come and see them rock for the last time.
So what now for Lee Dorian and the boys....new projects? we will have to wait and see...........
Cathedral are supposed to be doing one last studio CD before retiring. They just released a double live entitled ANNIVERSARY. Excellent release, the first CD is the old early doom material and the second covers the newer era's stoner-ish doom. Great packaging as well...Cathedral fans need to pick it up. I was listening to it again last night.
They also have a new single out called A New Ice Age.
BTW, I love Grand Magus, have all their CDs
Yeah they were selling the CD and 12" single at the gig last night, £15 and £13 respectively, sold like hot cakes
I'm looking forward to the next ( and unfortunately last ) full length. Will be buying for sure.
Should be a must purchase for a top band
Guys, you had a great opportunity to see this band performing for the 2nd time after 40 years. I saw them live on Friday and they amazed me with the sound of progressive rock. The drummer Iain Clark was in Uriah Heep and played on my favourite album 'Look At Yourself'. But that's enough of Cressida, it is Cathedral thread!
Great band...this video still kills me
I love that video ^^ Cathedral's videos all have a psychedelic, fun, yet heavy vibe ..or many of them do anyway. It was after watching some of their videos for the first time that I finally noticed how psychedelic their music is a lot of the time.
