TOR SHOP GIGS

TOR SHOP GIGS

THOSE OLD RECORDS - LIVE GIGS - work in progress

 

1. Peter Parker's Rock N Roll Club - September 2012. - Filmed by Steve Yates

This was the first gig that we ever held in the old shop at Brewery Street. Lenny, the bass player was an on line customer and he sent me their first single on Feed That Baby Records. That was one of Justin Barwick's labels coming out of Innsbruck, Austria. They were heading up to play a little festival in Cheshire and Lenny suggested that they play a short gig in the shop. I agreed but was very nervous about the whole thing. They played their set and blew the place apart with people dancing in the aisles. Steve Yates recorded this on my camera (before smart phones) and it still resonates. After the gig I asked Peter what he planned to do with this music and one thing lead to another and TOR Records was formed. I didn't have a clue what I was doing but we eventually released "Straight To Vinyl" which is still the best selling record on the label. The red vinyl first pressing sold out very quickly especially in Germany where it was championed by Wolfgang Doebeling of Rolling Stone magazine and Radioeins, Berlin.

2. Richard Riley - March 2016 - Filmed by Douglas Armour

I have great memories of this gig as we had "Jazz Goes Mod" the previous night in Lichfield and Richard did the sound on that. He manages to cut a finger with a knife the following morning so he was in some considerable pain throughout then gig. A great show to support the relaunch of "Not If But When" which I belive to be a masterpiece.
