Join me today 3-4pm for your weekly fix of 60’s Soul, Beat, Ska, Reggae, Mod Sounds on Ready Steady GO! I’m delighted to welcome back Steve White, legendary drummer in his own right and of course with The Style Council, Paul Weller, The Who, Ian Dury, John Lord, Trio Valore and most recently The Family Silver. This is a new venture for Steve, a man who is clearly not afraid of mixing it up and trying something new. This time around he is joined by bassist Damon Minchella (Ocean Colour Scene, Richard Ashcroft, The Who) and Matt Deighton on guitar and Vox (Mother Earth, Paul Weller, Oasis and Bill Fay)
Steve is getting ready to release The Family Silver’s Debut album on November 6th so we’re looking forward to hearing about that whole process and to sampling a few tracks. There are twelve superbly crafted original songs in total on ‘Electric Blend,’ delivered with the entire musical prowess you’d expect from three musicians who have made a significant contribution to British popular music over the past thirty years.
Also on today’s playlist: Jeff Lynne, The Action, a handful of Mod Revival, Stone Foundation, The Strypes, Nick Waterhouse, The Beat, Winston Wright and more..
