Set lists

Hi

This may sound a bit odd but I collect set lists from gigs which I've really enjoyed and just wonder if anyone may have the set list to 2 of Roy's gigs - One was at the Rock Cafe 2000 in Stourbridge back in January a couple of years ago, 2005 I think, and the other was at the Hammersmith Odeon in London way back in 1975 on the HQ tour, I think he played one night there but I don't remember the dat and I didn't get a programme....does anyone have one???

If anyone could help that would be great

Nick will be doing his last London gig for nearly 4 months on Thursday at Spitz. Will we be seeing any Stormcock faces there?!

Cecil Day Lewis poem

Gave a copy of this poem called 'The Conflict'' to Roy on Thursday night via Tracey and he found it very good/interesting.. have posted it before but nobody replied:

 

THE CONFLICT by Cecil Day Lewis 1904 [?]

I sang as one

Who on a tilting deck sings

To keep their courage up, though the wave hangs

That shall cut off their sun.

 

As storm-cocks sing,

Flinging their natural answer in the wind's teeth,

And care not if it is waste of breath

Or birth-carol of spring

 

De Barras Thursday 26th

Wow, to be part of the 'final gig' was just amazing. Met people from all over the place, Cumbria, Liverpool, Canterbury and heard of people travelling from Canada!

The gig was just great, I do have a full set list which I'll publish later, having left it elsewhere, but for me the highlights were Short and Sweet which was stunning and the whole of Stormcock, together with Roy's musings between each song,  oh and 12 hours of Sunset as well,  and....and....in fact everything was just as it should be.

 

 

What type of guitars play Roy?...

Hello there!. I'm a new member of this forum, I live in Argentina, I have 24 years old and unfortunately I never get knowledgeable about a songwriter called Roy, at least , about  a year ago when I learnt him:) haha.

Since that time, Roy redefine my personal taste about music and poetry. So here i am. Wondering about roy guitars: roy plays fenders? maybe gibsons? steel-chords? acoustics? what kind of...?
