An iconic band will stop off in Halstead as part of a spring tour.
Featuring original founding members Bev Bevan and Trevor Burton, The Move from Birmingham was one of the leading British rock bands of the 1960s, scoring nine Top 20 UK singles in five years.
Significantly the band played on Radio 1 and without The Move there would be no Electric Light Orchestra.

They often performed with the likes of Cream, The Who, The Rolling Stones and in 1968 toured the UK with Jimi Hendrix and Pink Floyd.
Following the tragic loss of Move lead vocalist Carl Wayne to cancer in 2004, Bev and Trevor agreed to recreate the magic of the band and bring their music to a new generation of fans.

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.
