It might come as a bit of a shock to find there is still a musician of note, who shuns the bigger arenas and is quite happy by playing songs that matter to him and his legion of fans in some of the more intimate venues around the country. Midge Ure has been, musically, through it all. Whether from his early days in the band Silk, the heady days of the New Romantic phase that swept Britain in the early to mid eighties with Ultravox and then as a solo artist whose voice has swept all before him.

Both Ricky Ross and Lorraine McIntosh had been in Liverpool earlier in the year with their band Deacon Blue when they were rightly considered to be one of the top acts at this year’s Summer Pops. The band have been put on hiatus for a while whilst the husband and wife team have been showcasing their new work on a tour of their own.

Perhaps it is appropriate that The Bad Shepherds are touring at the moment, for nobody would have possibly enjoyed the nod to creativity of The Bad Shepherds to folk up classic punk tracks than Malcolm Mclaren who sadly passed away earlier this month.
In salute to the man behind the Sex Pistols the band opened up an evening of skilful toned down music with the fitting song Anarchy in the U.K. and The Smiths’ lament Panic. There will be those that have never really been fans of The Smiths but to hear this particular song being played by the genius insanity that is Adrian Edmondson would have been a joy to behold.
