    Well spotted sir!...I hadn't seen that clip before. For years we were told that there wasn't much video of MTH and now every time I look on Youtube there's more and more unseen clips. Seems that fielding a ringer was a bit of a habit for the Hooples in those boring 'miming to the backing track' appearances....the comments suggest that Welsh legend Deke Leonard is on the stripey guitar in this one....confirmation anyone?

    Ah yes....this would appear to confirm it....do you think a 'most wooden German tv audience' thread might have legs?

    Buffin and Overend are quite possibly the two greatest first names anyone has ever gone onto a stage in possession of.

    Oh Dear, that's a huge one surely deserves it's own thread. Can a month not pass without one of my musical heroes passing away? RIP David.

    John Wetton too incidentally Miles 'Red' is my favourite KC album, blew my socks off that album when I first heard it many years ago. RIP John.

    Weird. Michael Kiwanuka sitting in for Jarvis Cocker on 6 music yesterday played both Axelrod's Holy Thursday and Prunes' Holy Are You. I didn't catch his commentary around the tracks but even assuming it was going out live I think the show was aired before news circulated of Axelrod's death.

    This track ends up on many a 'car comp' and always makes me think of him and bore the wife talking about who it is and what album the riff is sampled from... 'Yes you've told me that a 100 times' etc. :

    I heard that from upstairs ,and, fearing the worst, checked online.....nothing.
    Been up a tree all day, came down, checked Facebook, first thing I saw was Niges post, a picture of Songs of Innocence, alarm bells were ringing. Then I saw his dedication.
    Not unexpected, but still a shocker when it happens as always.
    RFH, 2004, Holy Thursday, goosebumps, tears, unexplainable, overwhelming emotions. Very powerful music. Won't forget that night as long as I live. I'm sad he's no longer with us.

    RIP. His production style was all over his LPs, esp when there was a larger orchestration. In a waxpoetics interview with Lalo Schifrin, he's asked about Axelrod's role in the 'Tensity' album he produced for Schifrin and Cannonball Adderley, Schifrin mentions his asset in production was keeping out of it. But you only need to listen to a few seconds 'Tensity' to tell it's Axelrod, he seems anything but an invisible producer. Which reminds me of a Miles Davis interview where he says Quincy Jones didn't have a production 'style'. Axelrod definitely had a style.

    Glad I made that RFH concert, that was pretty special... wasn't so sure about richard asscroft though

    Imposter. How to ruin a great tune was my thinking on the night.
