Ramón Chao – Tattoo

Ramon Chao will be talking about The Train of Ice and Fire at the Colombiage Festival this weekend at the Riverside Studios in London. To mark the occasion we’ve released another clip from An Evening With Ramón, this one includes his story of getting a Mano Negra tattoo.

The event is Saturday, 17 October at 6pm. Click here for details.

The Freewheel

Ian Clayton turned fifty on Friday. To celebrate he organised an audacious birthday bash down at his local boozer, with a host of very special musical guests. Amongst them was Clayton Devanny and Lora Midgley of The Freewheel. Here they are performing two songs from the night, ‘Home’ and the wonderful ‘Everything Reminds Me Of Something’, a song that was written in response to Ian’s book, Bringing It All Back Home.

The birthday bash was quite a night, I doubt the little town of Castlford will have seen such a talented assembly of musicians in one place in a long time, and all of it happened in a room which can hold forty people at a push. Maybe we’ll post a little more footage later.
