Subject: St Albans + Alan Moorehouse + Spotlight + Breezy
From: GUEST,Anonny Mouse
Date: 21 Sep 05 - 09:47 AM

When walking through St Albans last weekend I was accosted by a none-to-savoury looking busker who asked me to make a posting to this message board. Heaven alone knows why I agreed, but he was very persuasive in a wheedling sort of way, and actually he was making a passable attempt at a Cyril Tawney song at the time, (If you can ignore him playing one tune and singing another) This busker's name, if I remember correctly, was "Breezy" and I am given to understand that he may be known to some of you who drop in here from time to time.

He has asked me to let it be known that his "dial-up is buggered" and consequently is unable to communicate with you all in his usual manner. Personally, I'd have thought that was an extremely good thing. and we can only hope it'll be a long time before he gets his hands on another modem.

However, he did seem very concerned that I should let you all know that Alan Moorhouse will be playing at the Spotlight Club at the British Legion in St Albans on the evening of Sunday 25th. September, this Sunday in fact, and that you would all be well advised to attend and it would be very foolish of you to miss out on this opportunity.

This seemed like some sort of veiled threat to me, I don't like to pry, but presumably those of you who know this "Breezy" fellow will understand the likely consequences of not turning up at the Legion on Sunday. As I say, he was a mean looking fellow, and I wouldn't want anyone to get hurt on account of me not relaying his message.

Apparently you can talk to 'Breezy' directly 07774 909067 if you wish to "book a spot"
whatever that means.

This has all been a lesson to me. I'll be keeping clear of buskers in St Albans in future.

Ah Ross

Fred Tit Mouse no, I'm from the Hertfordshire branch of the Hippotty Mouse family.

Are you aquainted with this Breezy character? How does someone Like Alan Moorhouse who I understand is an entirely different class of busker and based in Germany, get mixed up with the nefarious goings on down at the British Legion of all places, on a Sunday night?

Strikes me there's something distinctly murky going on behind all this. I suspect money changes hands somewhere, and I can guess where it ends up.

Fred lived in Potten, Herts - ran a post office after his legendary off spinning days for middlesex

Breezy drives a porshe, wears shades and looks like Magnum PI; when he's not pretending at the folk (alledgedly)

St Albans is mentioned in the Lord of the Rings; a city outside the land of jam, near Mordor

The consequences of failing to turn up on Sunday when summoned by Breezy are not to be underestimated.

"The Ref" and I plan to throw our hats in first as we missed last Sunday due to being 200 miles away at Otley. Apparently this was not considered to be a reasonable excuse and we may have to pay a penance or two in order to get back in what passes for his good books.

For those of you who may have missed out on the unforgettable experience of hearing the said busker perform in French Row, there is the chance of catching his "songs from the cutting edge of folk" when he takes centre stage on Friday 14th October on the re-opening of his other club, The Windward Folk Club, for the Autumn season at the Duke of Marlborough, Holywell Hill, St Albans.

As usual the opening time varies according to his whim but is likely to be in the region of 7.38pm and we could kick off the singing at 8.16pm.

Moses and The Ref will be there to add some decorum to the proceedings as will the wonderful George Papavgeris and Flash-Fingers Flegg.

Really sorry to hear about your granny Ross. The more you go into this business the more unsavoury it becomes. Who are Moses and the Ref? They sound like couple of right bruisers to me. Wouldn't be surprised if they had a hand in your present cake shortage. Did your granny live in Otley by any chance?   You'd better prepare yourself for the ransom notes.

Between you and me I read "Moses and The Ref will be there to add some decorum" with some dread. I think we all know what 'adding decorum' means in these circumstances. If you do go on Sunday, check there are no concrete mixers around the building. I certainly wouldn't want Moses and the Ref offering me any new footwear. I'll bet too, they stop at nothing 'persuading' people to buy tickets for the sort of raffles that this 'Breezy' fellow runs:- I've heard about them before, the more tickets you buy the better your chances of leaving the place at the end of the evening in the same condition as you arrived…..You definitely don't want to win one!

I hope John Moorhouse knows what he's letting himself in for. Sounds like far too nice a chap to get involved with Breezy and his henchmen…..but then you hear all those stories about Frank Sinatra and his 'connections'…….??!!

Many thanks for your kind words - it's not been an easy time; what with the tanker crashing into our living room and the death of our pets through an inexplicable outbreak of anthrax

Be also aware of fingers flegg - as in 'you were only supposed to blow off the bleeding doors' fame

In JB's defence though, I did win one of his CD's once in the raffle; and when I complained it was full of nonsensical folk music; he whipped off his socks and exchanged them for it there and then

I have used the socks to built an altar to life

Did Frank Sinatra live in St Albans - I never saw him in the Legion?

Why....with him in charge and you as second-in-command we could put the GREAT! back into Britain and we'd be known all over the world for our brilliant sense of humour again!

On the other hand though, maybe you should be in charge with Ross as Second and then Breezy could be our mascot....

Lizzie, I'm sorry to dash your hopes, but let's be clear about this. No one, and I mean no one, connected with Breezy or the Spotlight should be allowed to run a bath on their own, let alone the country. We are dealing with a dangerous bunch of meglomaniac anarchists here, whose grasp on reality is both tenuous and sporadic:- particularly on Sunday nights.   

Ross, great to hear that you are now finding it easier to use the computer with your toe, but have you considered using your fingers at all?

And George is there tonight as well! We've all gone 'loopy' about George down here in Sidmouth! Caught him at Otley...now he's starting to 'pop' up all over the Radio 2 board. Yay George!! ;0)

Do you know, 'folk clubs' are beginning to grow on me. I was in a folk club for the first time EVER in Otley...and it didn't hurt at all! And if all of you hang out in them too, well I reckon they're probably great places to be.

Hope you all have a good time tonight, something tells me that you undoubtedly will...and not too much giggling into your beer lads!

Have fun...Oh...and if anyone sees Breezy could they ask him to open up a new branch of his Folk Club down here in Siddy please.

I haven't had so much fun in a folk club for many a year. Alanabit (who I haven't seen live before but have long loved his CD 'Small Voice Crying') was brilliant and El Greko as good as ever. But what's amazing is that everyone put their hearts and souls into it, even if there was an epidemic of memory lapses, it just prompted everyone else to join in with loud la-las in harmony! This is what folk clubs used to be like, way back then. I'd recommend an excursion to St Albans on a Sunday once in a while to anyone (though for the benefit of Kevin Sheils who might be reading this, I'll be back at Walthamstow next week).

Thanks for that Countess.

As the main 'CRAFT moment' sufferer I was fortunate enough to get the best la-las during one of my songs; might have to engineer that again sometime.

Second thoughts, knowing me I'll probably not have too. It will happen again naturally in the not too distant future.

Great evening, superb singing by everyone. Alan was brilliant.

El Greko's trio was something else. What about Fleggy on that sax; wow! Atmospheric or what?

Thanks Countess, it was lovely to see you again too.
Steve, I claim the first memory lapse - it was a double one too, and on the song "Memory", to make it worse!
Lizzie, I am so sorry not to have spent more time with you and yours on Sunday, but I left straight after the Tams/Coope afternoon set. But as you liked "Anytown", you can listen to it on the internet from last Saturday's Celtic Heartbeat show of Frank Hennessy's on BBC Radio Wales, about 57 minutes from the start, along with a 40 minute interview and some live songs I did for Frank. The version of "Anytown" there is a rough mix from the recording studio where I'm preparing the next album and it is without Fleggy's sexy sax, as we only recorded that yesterday morning - but it does have Miranda Sykes' rocking bass.

Thanks everyone. I am now recovering in Köln, happily overdosing on a two week shot of affection from my kids. I still have not got my head around everything which happened in Cornwall and England, but I can tell you that I will be a much more frequent visitor in the future. Markus really enjoyed himself too. I think he enjoyed playing on George's brilliant new song "Any Town".
The mandoline playing (and the slide) on "Walk in the Shallows" was done by our colleague from the Alan's Abits trio, Thomas Kärner. We are hoping to bring him with us on a future visit. We will see him in a few weeks time, when he comes up from Bavaria, for the presentation of "Travellers' Tales".
I was so looking forward to meeting everyone and in the event, Markus and I were also treated to some very fine singing and playing by all the guests.
George and Vanessa were our hosts that night and they spoiled us rotten. I knew I would like George, from his wise and witty posts here. I really hope there will be more time to talk for longer with all the other talented and interesting people on future visits. I would not have missed a minute of it. Thanks to Breezy for taking a chance on us and thanks to everyone who took the trouble to come out and see us. We'll be back.

Surprisingly, after all these years, I was a bundle of nerves and probably did not perform to my usual standard, but I was made to feel totally appreciated, and, when I stopped shaking, I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Good on yer Breezy, it's a great club.

However, please don't take it amis half of us are expecting to see someone else. It's perfectly normal, and really part of charm of the Spotlight. We love surprises....

When I saw You-Know-Who busking earlier to day, he was singing your praises and enthuiastically announcing your forthcoming appearance to all and sundry.

The boy done good. He is obviously a competent guitarist and singer, with influences more on the rock side than the folk side. I personally found the songs a bit introverted, but that's me. I think he should be encouraged to keep singing, keep writing and explore different styles. I hope he keeps going back.

Next subject - me and the missus (Carol) would like to thank the club for the warm welcome we had there, and especially to Breezy for hospitality and breakfast!

Couldn't agree more. David did realy well for first time out. I hope he comes back. The songs were more 'acoustic lounge' than folk, But we're not 'folk nazis' at The Spotlight.

It's Friday again and time for another great evening at Windward. (Duke of Marlborough, Holywell Hill, St Albans, Herts). Doors open 7.47pm (ish) Music starts around 8.19pm

Tonight, Chris (Flashingers) Flegg has his 2nd cd launch. Ten great songs some of which I'm sure will be sung during the evening. Entry is FREE - exit is negotiable.

On the down side, Breezy will be there trying to flog raffle tickets for his dubious prizes - I hear last weeks winner got free admission for tonights show.

Usual band of residents - supporters - hangers-on.

Wouldn't miss it.

This week, Friday 28th, Breezy and I share the limelight with a set each. I'll be singing some stuff you've not heard me sing before, so should be exciting. For me at least!.

What will Breazy do?

Well, you know Breezy; anything he likes!

Usual excellent residents in support.

Last Friday at "The Duke" for a while, before we move to "The Comfort" for the winter.

Sunday Spotlight at The Legion, is a resident's night with me picking up the feature spot. Old favourites from me this time.

Floor singers wecome, phone Breezy on 07774 909067, to be sure of a spot.
