Brit Floyd and tribute bands

Jon doesn't like tribute bands but I sometimes do.I've seen Hoaxwind twice, and they do a pretty fair job of things. Oddly, Hawkwind also run their own trib, Technicians of Spaceship Hawkwind, in which several current members of Hawkwind have taken part, including Dave Brock, which I suppose raises the question of whether they're actually a trib or not.

There's no doubt that Brit Floyd are a tribute band, though.

The exuberant style of the guy on keyboards reminds me of Jean Michel Jarre! Anyway, perhaps it's nice for youngsters to get a taste of a Floyd-type occasion...

Incidently, the ABITW performed above is the instrumental.

What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
