Ken Hensley in South Africa

From RockFest

By now, you’ve probably heard that KEN HENSLEY, the man who penned so many of Uriah Heep’s classic tracks, will be doing a once-off-gig at the New Life Church auditorium in Douglasdale, Johannesburg, on Saturday 17 March! In a major scoop for The Rockfest on MIX 93.8FM, we are pleased to announce that some excellent SA talent will be supporting this most legendary musician. Toni Rowland, Ghapi / Peter Hanmer BAND, (Cindy) Alter (Stewart) Irving and Nanette Scott, will be setting the stage for a truly memorable day. Booking through Strictly Tickets (www.strictlytickets.co.za). Tickets (R 180.00pp) are limited!!! An item of clothing and / or a tin of canned food for the various charities the church takes care of, together with your prized ticket, gets you in! Doors open at midday. Logistics allowing, The Rockfest on Mix93.8fm will be broadcasting from the venue on the day. It’s going to be an AWESOME day!!! – Leon Economides

Darker Than Blue News Round Up – 9 – Nov 2011

darker than blue newsletter 9

DTB • Intensely busy period at DTB, with a number of new releases all hitting the streets on the same week. We’ve been shipping the Deep Purple BBC Sessions (both formats), Montreux 2011 (two video formats), the monster Whitesnake box and the Colin Hart biography, with New Live & Rare vinyl going out as well (yes, it’s arrived at long last). The vinyl box sets needed very carefully packaging, and this did delay them by a day or two, as we figured customers would prefer this to them arriving sooner but biffed. Astonishingly EMI shipped the Whitesnake boxes loose inside card outers, and 50% of our stock arrived damaged and had to be replaced.

Darker Than Blue News Update June 16 2011 (via darker than blue)

Darker Than Blue News Update June 16 2011 A little late with the latest DTB News Update; we had builders descend on us again last week to gut the old bathroom. Seeing as the fittings dated from 1967 some might say about time, but if the previous owner hadn’t scoured the life out of them, I’d be putting them back! Sadly though re-enamelling the old bath was going to cost hundreds, and involve a journey down to the Aga factory in Birmingham. Anyhow, they’re having the day off today while t … Read More

Mk 3 Reunion rumours (via darker than blue)

Mk 3 Reunion rumours Glenn Hughes has raised the subject of a Mk 3 DP reunion in a few interviews over the last couple of weeks (including a new Glenn Hughes interview done in France last month we've posted).  Don't go raiding the holiday money fund just yet though, as there are no firm plans. What is safe to ay from the stories is that GH is up for it were it to happen, and that he and DC have chatted about the subject together. They got as far as making tentative a … Read More
