    Polish group - Riverside, metal mixed with hip-hop and progressive rock. Makes everyone else sound like they are playing the Sound of Music. If you want something with kick-a** then try Sweet Sound. Metal with attitude and good inspiring lyrics - Gotthard are the group. The sweetest sound I have ever heard is that from the Wailin Jennys; still looking for something to top Hawkwind Electric Tepee .... Jean Michele Jarre, Tangerine Dream, Pink Floyd .... Djem, simply the best blues rock group in Europe..... Ain't no one with a better voice than Pegky Zina ... What was the question? ... ::18:

    At the moment on Pirate F.M. there is a non smoking advert/song. On Saturday at Mazey Day I was astounded when Bob McCreadie said the group singing it was Uriah Heep. In my Winter Garden days you were guaranteed to see me head banging to "Gypsy" by said band. I absolutely adore this song. My long blonde hair would be flying and my head spinning around. No wonder I now suffer with neck problems. Oh the good old days of 'freaking out' at The Wintz. :eek:

    Did bar work at the Wintz in the late 60's before moving to the Barn. In the 80's supported some of the bands that went there, Marmalade, Mud, Tremelos, Alvin Stardust and more. Shame the place ever shut. ::4:

    One of David Whites' year on Radio Cornwall this week was 1973. The Sweet, Status Quo, Suzi Quatro, Nazareth and Slade;I saw them all at the Wintz. I remember coming home on the Blue Bus from Tech at 5p.m.(probably 1972, I would have to check my diary) and the queue to see Hawkwind was all the way up Alexandra Road. I could not get in so I had to listen outside. It seems hard to believe these groups every played at such a small venue.

    Stand by for incoming ... what I want to know is why don't we get any decent bands coming to Cornwall anymore??? Last brilliant concert was The Australian Pink Floyd. Come On - let's have some MUSIC in Cornwall. I am not saying that Cornwall has no talent, by the way. I do not see anything that proves the fact, nor do I hear of any decent music touring Cornwall, etc. I know ex Faces Rod Stewart was here recently but not my cuppa. It is years since we had Chris de Burgh.

    Each to his own ... not top of my list, but a great show by a very talented person, a true chanteur, and the group was simply amazing. All that and a very happy wife, what more could you want?

    Treeve - you should check out Hawkwind's Space Ritual (if you're not familiar with it) - a double album of Hawkwind at their best. Found a second hand vinyl copy when I was around 17 at Chy an Stylus, listened to it on headphones and I was away!

    Needless to say, the first Motorhead album is a classic - as they got more polished, they seemed to lose something for me.

    Anyone remember seeing Motorhead at The Wintz round about Jan '78 I think? I got right to the front and have memories of the dry ice machine going into overdrive at the end! Loudness redefined.
