The Waterboys Would Morrissey pop along for a quick guest appearance during Johnny Marr’s set (ahem...)? Would Richard Thompson ride onto the stage on a Vincent Black Lightening 1952? And would The Waterboys show us the whole of their moon...yes...it’s Moseley Folk Festival time again!

THEBAND The House of Love emerged with real promise in the late 1980s, with a great new guitar sound and terrific songs, only to prematurely split after making some magnificent records. I never saw them back in those heady days, but fortunately the key members are now back together on the road for a short tour making great music again.

King Charles Nope, the Queen hasn’t gone to that great walk about in the sky leaving her eldest in charge (lord help us), this particular King Charles has bugger all to do with the Windsor lot. He looks the part though, far more than any member of our royal family has for...ooooh...the odd century or four. With enough hair to make several thousand merkins and a suitably raffish moustache he cuts a dashing figure, part Pirates of the Caribbean, part Barbara Cartland’s wet dream.

Alabama Shakes!  New!  Improved!  Now with BIGGER venue! Yes. That's right people, remember you heard it here first (or maybe you were on the HMV Institute mailing list like me ;o) ) If you were upset that you missed-out on a Birmingham ticket to see the hotly tipped Alabama Shakes, then fret no more! They've been upgraded to the BIG ROOM! I know! But be quick as they're obviously selling fast HERE. The gig is still on Friday 11 May 2012, by the way.
