Anyone in the Midlands who wants to see possibly one of the greatest current sax-players, get yourselves to Market Harborough on 24th April; i.e. next Saturday, where Gilad Atzmon "should" be performing with the wonderful Blockheads.

I say "should" 'cos I don't want to be strung up if they've got a dep in :)

their deps are pretty spectacular too... or at least, the guy I saw play horns for them last year was.... still reckon davey payne was the one, though- not as slick as gilad but wonderfully quirky

I saw a guy called Dave Lewis play with them a couple of years ago - not at all quirky but a terrific player. Gilad seems to be the regular saxman currently though.

I met Dave Lewis when he played with them in Leicester a few years ago. Great player and a really nice bloke (as are all the band), and he gave me some really helpful playing/listening tips too.

Not a very good picture, but it was taken on a dark stage with a very basic mobile phone. That's Norm Watt Roy behind him and furthest away from the camera is Phill Jupitus:
