Great call Trimmy. I know Tears' ex manager - Paul King - he cleared off with a lot of their money. Roland Orzabel has written much about him! Big Country - Stuart Adamson ex Skids.....superb. Thanks for jogging my memory.

Get onto Youtube and watch Talk Talk concert live from Montreaux...fantastic.

MArk Hollis of Talk Talk has not conducted a single interview and has virtually disappeared after their last album in the '80s.

Intriguing.....

I really like that Trimmy. We should get your mate's lad a proper drum kit! Great sound and excellent harmonics.

Here is one for you......like a sixties revival sound...https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=WANNqr-vcx0

Excellent Trimmy, I will send that link to some pals. I have a venue - Fifield Polo Club, Berks if they ever need a place to play. I don't own it!!! PM me if you want info.

Classic guitar stuff.....1967...: http://youtu.be/i3aF4xXwFG4

Always fun to watch 80s band videos, unfortunately my nearly dead computer won't play much youtube anymore, strangely tho, when folk put a youtube clip in a post ( not just a link ) it will play 'em..

One of my favourite bands.........timeless music.....https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zVimMFY4FIE&feature=youtu.be

I contributed in a very minor way to a couple of tracks on The Color of Spring (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Colour_of_Spring). The sessions were quite difficult, Mark & Tim really knew what they wanted but had a hard time expressing it. But I too love their music.

Interesting factoid, Tim Freise-Green pretty much retired from music production but has released a few CDs under the name 'Heligoland' which are very experimental but worth a listen.

Thank you David I knew someone on this site would know more. Have you ever heard what mark is up to? Their music became really "slight" almost inaudible on Colour of Spring

I don't understand what you mean by '"slight" almost inaudible', could you explain?

I have no idea what Mark Hollis is up to. I worked occasionally for Tim F-G after the Talk Talk sessions, but had no contact at all with Mark.

Mark Hollis started to record with extremely low volume. This is not my description - slight. At the end of tracks he has put on single piano chords to link tracks. I shall dig out more info for you.
