Tribute acts set for Castletown Festival

Recommended Posts

 

*Actually I fucking hate tribute acts. And cover bands who are too lazy to take a fresh new approach.

 

 

You need to relax in your musical outlook, our kid.

 

When I was very young I was a Beetles fan, then a bit of Floyd maybe and also, for the production side of things, Neil Diamond.

 

Then I found out that most other 'pop artists' got into the charts performing other people's songs and music. There were even people who wrote songs but didn't actually perform them, they had others do it, and very financially successful and popular too. Then I doscovered there were many bands playing music that was regurgitated from the 1950s.

 

Once I had got past falling in love with Debbie Harry on Top of the Pops and listened to her first UK Hit, I was shocked to later realise it was a song from before I was born. I was devastated.

 

Even the punk bands were at it.

 

If people want to go and see tribute bands, then fair enough. Apparently the market is very aware that it gives people in their 50s and 60s the 'experience' of what they couldn't do when they had little time or money, back in the day.

 

With these tribute bands you have to 'chill' a bit and play along with the intended atmosphere. Like at the pantomimes.

 

Incidentally, the George Formby Society - complete with ukeleles - are visiting the Isle of Man this weekend (80 year anniversary of No Limit). Various locations but Manx Museum tomorrow afternoon for a filming of said film and ditto Manx Legion at night.

 

Now that will be real tribute stuff.

The Isle of Man should open a cafe dedicated to tribute acts - Card Rock Hafe, or maybe Hard Cock Rafe.

 

It could filed with items donated by tribute acts, an ash tray from Stalking Heads for example.

 

Could be a world wide franchise opportunity.

it will last about a month before hard rocks solicitors come knocking

I'm pretty sure he wasn't being altogether serious.

..about the card rock, you were right.
