Jazz Café next stop said Thomas the Tank Engine. Large numbers alighted at Pink Lane, Charlie was ready and waiting, although there was no sign of Uncle Oswald. Jazz Sound Records set up shop in the upstairs room of the Jazz Café to record a gig. Tickets issued, all seats taken, off we go…
Five piece Not Now Charlie built up a head of steam. Riff, hook, reggae, rock steady, go. The new ‘product’ available at the door, it made sense to play the stuff! Band tight, tenor man Jamie Toms leading from the front.
Tunes from the new CD – Hadath, Russian Girl, Where Do You Go To? – impressed, so too older numbers – Quizzical (the band’s first hit, well, first ever tune!) and MCT. Pawel Jedrzejewski cranked it up, Richard Campbell did the business and the rhythm boys – Liam Gaughan (four and six string basses) and Dave McKeague – knew what they were doing. Pop time, swing time, good time.
