In Concert: Royal Blood

I can recall the exact moment that I fell in love with Royal Blood – their Glastonbury 2017 performance. With great fashion, showmanship, Champagne celebrations, and that powerful sound; I was hooked. 157 more words

In Concert 2017

Well that was a fairly good, grownup, “elder statesmen of rock” type performance. . I do wonder if people tuning in who didn’t know the band thought they’d found a new prog rock outfit at times, and the BBC audio (as least on the red button) was pretty flat and unbalanced which dulled the edge, but the filming was more complex than I expected; the last In Concert I watched (Blondie) was a few years back and most of the cameras were static. 343 more words

Sorry Bruce...

Deep Purple were a no-show for Ken Bruce this morning and all mention of it on the BBC website vanished. Apparently rather than a special session, the routine is for Ken to go across live to the morning sound check for the In Concert performance, have a quick chat and hear a live track.   102 more words
