Spacepig Pig | 1473 comments Back to the 70's this week with English Prog Rockers Curved Air.

Seven albums to choose from I think, but to open it up a bit, if you want to include any relevant solo recordings then go ahead.

As ever, noms close at 10 pm on Sunday. I still haven't got back into my youtube account yet (but I do have a cunning plan) so I might need the Duke to help with the playlist again.

Enjoy the weekend peeps, three local bands on for me tomorrow night to enjoy, could get a wee tad messy :-)

message 21: by suzysunshine7 (new)

suzysunshine7 | 14594 comments Okay, well I have to be honest and admit that I genuinely thought that 'Curved Air' was one of those spoof Bands at first, like 'Spinal Tap'. Either that, or maybe it was a Band for whom English was possibly not their first Language? - this idea probably coming from the Foreign TV Show introductions to some of the most extraordinary Song Lyrics and Videos ;o>

I think maybe my initial confusion over Curved Air might have started with hearing the loud 'Raspberry' noise at the beginning of 'Back Street Luv' and, of course, some credit too must surely go to our tech for truly excelling himself on his choice of nomination ;o>

However, while I will never be that much of a fan, I've found that their Music does sort-of seem to grow on you after a while - and I also, rather unexpectedly, had a really good giggle quite a few times along the way as well.

After Lez Lee ...

Spacepig Pig | 1473 comments Sorry for the late finish, busy busy busy.

A draw on points, but with 2 top scores to one, the winner this week, Val, with Marie Antoinette. Pipped by the scoring system, Lez with Vivaldi. And sharing third spot, Jemma and Brass Neck with Melinda and It Happened Today.

Good round for the ladies that one, thanks everyone who took part.

suzysunshine7 | 14594 comments YAYYY!!! - Congratulations Val! ... x

Brass Neck | 3891 comments 'Good round for the ladies that one' - a small sweet sherry for the Sheilas?

SussexWelsh | 5555 comments Sorry I couldn't nominate a track for this, Space, I was away at the End Of The Road Festival from Thursday to Monday.

Harvey's Bristol Cream for me please! I only seem to poll well when it's an artist I know little about and use a pin for selection! I still proudly wear my gold medal for Phish.

"Don't ring for a Taxi, Don't call a Policeman
Don't send for a Doctor - he'll just give you pills"

suzysunshine7 | 14594 comments Ahhh, so this particular choice was part of a cunning plan, was it? ;o>

I still can't stop giggling over how confused I was at first by this Band! - LOL!!!


message 32: by Lez (new)

Lez | 7490 comments I see the drummer’s wonderful (real) name is Florian M. Pilkington-Miksa!

suzysunshine7 | 14594 comments The poor Kid must have had a terrible time growing up with a name like that?!! ;oO
