Acoustic Strawbs on tour

Acoustic Strawbs to bring old, new songs to Sparta
BY ROBERT HICKS
SPECIAL TO THE DAILY RECORD

Dave Cousins is excited about singing three-part harmonies and rearranging old original songs in the Acoustic Strawbs.

"I've always believed in the importance of the lyrics," he said. "What's beautiful about the acoustic group is that the audience can hear the lyrics. We concentrate on it."

The British trio will perform at Krogh's in Sparta on Wednesday.

The band consists of Cousins (vocals, guitar, dulcimer, banjo), Dave Lambert (vocals, guitar, Ebow) and Chas Cronk (vocals, guitar, bass, pedals). All compose songs.

"We haven't toured in America for a year," Cousins said. "We decided to take a year off because we thought we were overstaying our welcome. We always warm up for a tour over here by doing a tour in the U.K."

During its recent U.K. tour, the Acoustic Strawbs revisited some old songs such as "The Battle."

"It talks about the futility of war and it's particularly appropriate in this day and age that we live in and the terrible situation in Iraq. War never resolves anything. It only does so temporarily, if it even does anything at all," Cousins said.

The trio also is debuting its song "The Man Who Called Himself Jesus" in the U.S.    more.........se below

Rush album to be preserved - update
Latest News - Music News
Friday, 20 October 2006

JAM! Music reports that the prog-rock experiments of the band RUSH are among works that should be preserved for future generations, says a committee tasked with saving the best in Canadian television, radio, film and music.

The band's 1976 album "2112", a unique blend of classic rock and synthesizers that made RUSH a sensation both in Canada and the United States, is one of 12 cultural pieces named Thursday as MasterWorks by the Audio-Visual Preservation Trust. The public-sector group promotes the protection of classic Canadian works and selects a dozen every year for preservation, offering funds for those in danger of being lost.
Also chosen this year is what's considered Canada's first homegrown TV hit, "The Pig & Whistle".

"We are thrilled with the selections this year and commend the juries for uncovering these important gems from our past," Stephen Ellis, 2006 chair of MasterWorks, said Wednesday in a release.

"The safeguarding of these selections is so important to the foundation of Canadian culture. Without MasterWorks, future generations would be missing these extraordinary windows into the past," added trust president David Novek.

David Walliman's debut CD
Latest News - Music News
Friday, 20 October 2006
David Walliman's debut CD "Deep Inside The Mind"  is now available on www.davidwallimann.com . David is Glass Hammer's new guitarist who was featured on the Belmont live DVD, and will be on their upcoming studio album. He also gave two stunning performances with the band here in Chattanooga on tuesday night.  David is originally from France, and most of this material was recorded before he moved to the states, and mastered here by Fred Schendel of GH.

It has more of a metal edge than GH, but is very diverse, and his playing and songwriting are phenomenal. There is some spoken word and narration that documents his spiritual journey, but it doesn't distract from his phenomenal playing.


Deep Inside The Mind
Everyone is confronted at one time in their life with the idea of God. This is one man's story.

Guitar instrumental with some spoken texts, written and arranged by David Wallimann.
