I Am Kloot Another great little band with a marvellous name that we first saw supporting The Bluetones at The Cavern in Exeter in about 2005.

We saw them again at Glastonbury in 2010 when guitarist John Bramwell also performed a solo acoustic set in "The Garden" including this, my favourite track :

We saw them yet again at Glasto in 2013

They might take a bit of getting used to but well worth further listening.

At the moment: OMD's new album Bauhaus Staircase and Slowdive's Everything is Alive. Both are brilliant (imho...)

Off to see Slowdive tonight at the Troxy in East London.
If it moves and shouldn't, duct tape. It it doesn't move and should, WD40...

Not sure if I've posted this before but I recently submitted this video as the railway song of the week for the Upstairs Downstairs weekly newsletter. It was included in last week's newsletter with a huge thank you from Max at the shop  :D
The song was written to commemorate the last train from Devizes on April the 18th 1966 (at 19:36) when that Beeching bloke vandalised our railways.
There are some great shots of this wonderful town and plenty of videos of trains in and around the area, albeit some of them are almost as old as @Newportnobby so neither are the best quality and are of course both showing their age  :P
I know all of the band members personally as they are all Devizes residents (and British Lion regulars, Clare actually works behind the bar) and Martin @port perran may even recognise a couple as he met/saw them very briefly at the beer festival. The video of the band was filmed at the Bell by the Green, just along from the British Lion, many years ago.
I hope you enjoy it  :beers:


EDIT: I forgot to add that there's a good article published by the Cornwall Railway Society all about the Devizes line which can be seen here if you're interested.

Thanks John

Really nostalgic and memories. Sounds like a good weekend pub gig

Moonglum

Thank you for posting John, an interesting CRS link which I will read in full later. Interesting to note Lavington and Patney and Chirton, I did some bridge repair schemes in these locations back in my BR days at Swindon.

Cheers,

Tim

Lydeway bridge was where I started 'spotting. Saw my very first HST there in the late 1970s and thought it was brilliant! I've been in love with them ever since. Loads of class 50s too with several 47s, 37s, 56s. They were proper locos and trains  :D

Yep, those were the days! I only have a handful of photos of me working on the railways but two of them feature a Class 50 in the background. I thought the 50s always looked and sounded liked they meant business!!

PS Not listening to anything at the moment!

That's brilliant John.
I don't particularly remember those band members but we did meet a lot of people at the beer festival.
The film brings back memories of spotting at Trowbridge in the very early sixties. I remember what we termed the "Devizes Tankie" with a local goods for Devizes from Westbury.

I was in Devizes very briefly on Saturday morning but didn't see a bloke in a tou tou wandering about.

While I was away at the weekend someone asked me what was my favourite live track or maybe the best ever live track.
I had a think and came up with Lindisfarne with We Can Swing Together

https://youtu.be/W7VnGeWJeHs?si=mzBM4CbgyKuZYPRZ

Certainly not a masterpiece and it won't be to everyone's taste.
I saw Lindisfarne twice in the early 70s. They were a great live act if a bit rough around the edges but tremendous fun.
This track, recorded in the band's native Newcastle certainly captures the essence of live performances in the early 70s.
The band had a knack for getting everyone involved and enjoying themselves.
Does anyone have any other ideas for atmospheric live tracks?
