Trouble Monkey

Background
Woodstock generation, collecting music and gigs since 1963, but musically curious enough to keep interest up to present day.

Musical highlights
Any Blue Nile album, usually released at least 5-7years apart,
Brian Wilson (musical genius) performing the legendary unreleased Beach Boys ‘Smile’ for the first time ever at London Royal Festival Hall in 2004, 37yrs after tapes locked away. Impossible to describe the collective emotion and brilliance
Kraftwerk at the Sage Gateshead in 2017 after decades missing out on tickets.

Musical Regrets
Too young to be allowed to go with friends to see Hendrix at the IoW Festival
Missing out going to Live Aid in 1995 as stuck on ship in Iran.

The Show
Strange Brew : Cross-Genre showcase (electronics, world, ambient, indie, jazz, fusion and anything else adventurous)

Influences
John Peel (The Daddy), Andy Kershaw, Mary-Ann Hobbs, Radio Luxembourg 208, Verity Sharp (Late Junction), The Cavern, Eric’s, Moog
