Landmarq return to Rotherham's Classic Rock Society to headline a show
on Saturday 20th January 2007.
Also on the bill will be 'Headspace', the new band formed by Adam
Wakeman which includes ex-Landmarq vocalist Damian Wilson.

- FRIDAY 26th JANUARY 2007
Landmarq have been invited to kick off the first date of a new monthly
venue for Prog in the south London area.
The Peel follows hot on the heels of the recent closure of the
long-established and sorely-missed venue, The Cartoon in Croydon.
Support act for this gig is still to be confirmed but the night is
sure to be a good one so if you're within Prog-rockin' distance of
this one, please do come along. Check out The Peel website to see who
is appearing in the months ahead.

Catching up with some earlier news, this from 10T Records (from Dec 11):

The brand new double live CD by Frogg Café, entitled The Safenzee Diaries is currently being mastered in New York with a projected late February 2007 release planned. Featuring recordings from performances at NEARfest, the NJ Proghouse, Orion Studios in Baltimore, and Nectar's in Burlington, the double CD also incorporates live in the studio jams intertwined between tracks. Additionally, you can expect to hear energetic reworkings of classic Frogg tunes featuring different solos and sometimes entirely new arrangements, plus THREE new Frogg tunes new heard before.

Pre-orders will be taken starting in January for what promises to be an amazing document of one of the most ecclectic and dynamic live performance bands on the scene today!

Little Atlas is in the latter stages of completing their upcoming album, Hollow. A concept album, Hollow details the lives of eight individuals, linked together by themes of alienation and loss. Tracks unfold as character studies told through a first person narrative. The music continues to develop the "Little Atlas sound," honed on Wanderlust, but with more of an emphasis on studio production as a tool to enhance the storytelling. As with Wanderlust, the new album is a fully co-written enterprise reflecting the collective influences and vision of Katsikas, Pocovi, Strattman, and Bigai.
Alan Parsons in double ?

A man claiming to be the co-founder of '70s and '80s pop group the Alan Parsons Project has landed in jail -- again -- after attempting to bilk several Troutdale residents, police said.

Sgt. Marc Shrake, spokesman for the Troutdale Police Department, said 55-year-old transient Michael D. Rodgers was arrested Tuesday on accusations of identity theft for allegedly impersonating musician Eric Woolfson.

The 61-year-old Woolfson -- who at 6-foot-6 is considerably taller than the 6-foot Rodgers -- was born in Glasgow, Scotland, and moved to London when he was 18. According to his Web site, he worked in the early 1960s as a session musician and songwriter, penning songs for singer Marianne Faithfull. In 1975, he formed the Alan Parsons Project with Parsons, the well-known producer of albums for the Beatles and Pink Floyd. The 10 albums they made together sold 45 million copies.
Shrake said Rodgers admitted using Woolfson's name for the past 20 years.

An alert posted on Woolfson's Web site warns people that someone has been impersonating the musician and that "the individual is extremely pleasant and we suspect that his objective may be to obtain money by deception."

Most recently, police said, Rodgers claimed to be Woolfson and said he was traveling through town as part of Lyle Lovett's band, which performed July 9 at McMenamins Edgefield in Troutdale.

According to investigators, Rodgers offered several people new cars if they agreed to pay the luxury tax.

"He told them he would fly them to a place on his private jet so they could pick up the cars," Shrake said.

Police also suspect Rodgers of making written offers on $1 million properties to local real estate agents.

Shrake said nobody in Troutdale took the bait or lost any money.

"He comes across as very quiet and sincere and sort of looks like a musician might look," Shrake said. "He told us he's been using Woolfson's name for 20 years . . . said he had to make a living somehow."

Rodgers was arrested for using a fake driver's license in Portland on July 17 but released from the Justice Center jail five days later because of overcrowding. He was released from a Nevada prison late last year, Shrake said.

Rodgers was re-booked into the Justice Center jail Tuesday in lieu of $5,000 bail.

Anyone who suspects being a victim is asked to call Troutdale Police Detective Dave Licht at 503-665-6129.
