Iona - The Circling Hour
Latest News - Music News
Monday, 18 September 2006
The brand new album Iona 'The Circling Hour' is now in stock and available from the Iona website (www.iona.uk.com) where you can also hear mp3 extracts from all the tracks.

The band have also just added an extra UK tour date to their schedule on November 16th and this will be a special 'Circling Hour' album launch concert.

The concert will be held in the newly refurbished St James' church in the picturesque East Yorkshire village of Warter, near Pocklington and about 18 miles east of York.

Doors will open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start.

The church is to become a centre for concerts and arts events and this will be the first event to take place there since the completion of the renovations. The concert will be candlelit and the venue (which dates back to the 13th century) will lend itself to an especially intimate atmosphere.

Tickets and more info will be available soon via the band's website. All those who pre-order tickets will be automatically entered into a prize draw. Winners will receive some signed Iona goodies. One not to miss!

'I have been putting together another solo project for ages which originally started off as a sort of lullaby thing but as time has passed and new ideas have come along  the project has sort of evolved into a more general contemplative/worship type album. Sort of like lullabies for grown ups which my boys like to listen to as well. Its more of a reflection of my own spiritual journey over the past few years.

Frank from Iona is producing this time so its kind of in his hands as to when it will be completed. I think realistically it will be early next year before completion.

Clive Nolan is working on a new project Caamora and this will be a musical based on the novel 'She' by Victorian adventure writer H. Rider Haggard.  The official word is that this epic production will feature guest vocalists, instrumentalists, orchestra and choir, forming a two-hour musical journey. An album will be recorded in the summer of 2007, with a partly staged performance to be filmed in a theatre for DVD in September 2007. The album and DVD box set is planned for release in October 2007.

In the meantime an EP with the title 'Closer' is set for release later this year to give a taster of what is to come.  This EP will contain 5 tracks and is due out towards the end of the year.

'Closer' tracklisting:

1. Half Moon Street – This is a reworking of a Shadowland song.
2. World Somewhere – This song was written as part of the 'She' project.
3. Sacrifice – A wonderful new orchestrated version of the Strangers on a
                   Train song.
4. The Bonding – This song will feature on the 'She' album.
5. Closer - This track has been written especially for the EP

Happily the official website is now up and running and is packed with a wealth of information and pictures so please take a few moments to check it out.

King Crimson’s Roxy Music Goes Live At Last.
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Thu., Sep 14, 2006

Well, it’s been a long time coming but KC 81 at the Roxy has been turned on today following some sterling work behind the scenes from tech-guru Eric.  The gig is from an audience recording that has received a bit of the old fairy dust from DGMLive visitor Dan Loretangeli. 

Dan spent a bit of time cleaning and nurturing the tape back to life and sent it to DGM and the opinion of chief necromancers David Singleton and Alex Mundy.  Impressed with what they heard they asked Dan to send in some more, and lo and behold the results of his labour have now gone live.

I asked Dan what prompted him to heroically give his time to this project and, and why this show in particular.

“Having read on DGM and ET about the minimal ’81 material available, I figured this would be a good candidate to work on.  For a 25 year old audience tape, the source was quite good.  Although I have a decent equipment rack that I’ve used for other shows, the Roxy was completed entirely on my DAW (Adobe Audition) with about half a dozen plug-ins thrown in as needed. 

This was one of those shows were I kept stopping the ‘work’, and just listened to this great line-up.  Since I was weaned on ‘80’s KC, this show brings back fond memories of the four 80’s line-up shows I was fortunate enough to attend in the Philadelphia area.  ‘Manhattan’ is in its original working state, and I actually prefer it this way.  Mr. Bruford, who has always seemed to me to be holding back a little, really lets himself go on this set. 

During ‘Red’ ‘Indiscipline’ and ‘Lark’s’, the percussive onslaught leaves no prisoners.  I can almost ‘hear’ RF giving him a ‘look’.  Bill’s drum fill at the end of Lark’s is worth the price of admission alone. 

Ade seems to be having a great time as well, as there are a few comedic moments between him and the pumped-up crowd.  The ‘King Crimson making history!’ line from an overjoyed fan is a classic.”

So Dan stepped up to the plate and gave it his best shot.  And what a shot.  I couldn’t agree more with Dan’s views about this show.  It’s got classic written all the way through it.
