This week we found a fellow who has a long history of playing and writing music all over the world and kicked off the show with his song, “Mr. Fixit”. His name is Malcolm Lane. Here is some information about his work and career:
Although at 72, he no longer performs live, he spent decades playing in bands. The first of any note was Serenity, a blues/folk group whose 1973 album Piece Of Mind is still one of the New Zealand records most sought after by collectors with the original pressings selling for around USD1000.
Serenity were a Christchurch based pop/folk trio around for a short time in 1972. They released a good album that year called “Piece Of Mind” and from that album came two singles, “Where Is The Lord”/”Millions” and “Pig”/”Sandelmaker”, all on the Down Under label.
It has been re-released internationally twice since then. As a blues harmonica player, he performed for 25 years with the late singer/guitarist Steve Gainsford. As well, he taught blues harmonica for many years with one of his harmonica solos opening the play Hand To God, on both Broadway and in London’s West End. Since Steve’s passing a year ago his focus has been writing songs.
You can also find Malcolm Lane Radio through jango.com, and also on his YouTube channel bentnote99. His songs are simple, blues influenced songs that are self explanatory. Although some are on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon etc, many more can be obtained from him directly by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org . The full list of 70 or so songs with details as to how to purchase is available on the Malcolm Lane Radio homepage.
The next tune is called “City of Gravity” by our old friend, Darryl Jackson. You can check out the video he did for it on Youtube. Want more from Darryl Jackson? Visit his website here. And find him on Facebook here. And Soundcloud here. Or head over to Jango and listen to his Station.
After that we heard some Muzak with a Track from their 2015 Album “Oxymoron” called “You Threw Me Out”. I know you need some more Muzak so check them out in all these places:
