Dragged myself off my sick bed to see my mates in The King's Pistol. Now suffering for it.

So.. this week so far - we played a gig in Nottingham on Saturday. Tuesday I caught the train to Blackpool to see Sheridan Smith - saw her in Legally Blonde down in London a few years back and have followed what she's done ever since. Very different from Springsteen on Broadway, but an equally emotionally powerful show in a completely different way. The girl wears her heart on her sleeve -and as the Guardian said, she's a force of nature. Superb, old-school showbiz voice too and a natural comedienne who swears like a trooper. Fantastic show. (Did I spot Charlie Beresford in the orchestra too?)

Back early today and charging one of the "good" cameras (as opposed to the Stylus 1 pocket thing which I took the Ms Smith ones with) to go and photograph Rowan Godel at Biddulph Up In Arms. Thursday it's Lilly Hiatt and Daniel Lucas/Boss Caine in Manchester, then a double-header of Courtney Marie Andrews in Liverpool and Manchester over the weekend, with a viewing of "Funny Cow" at Home in Manchester squeezed in on Sunday.

Rowan Godel in Biddulph - pleasant enough, but not really my musical cup of tea. One for the folkier purists.

Lilly Hiatt at Manchester Gulliver's - now we're talking! Lovely lady and her recent album "Trinity lane" is really strong. The gig was done as a trio and helped to flesh out the songs, although I'd love to see her with a full band.

Double-header of Courtney Marie Andrews in Liverpool and Manchester for me this weekend. She started off as a teenager playing keyboards for Jimmy Eat World and despite being only in her twenties, has released half a dozen albums, the last three of which have really pushed her to the forefront of attention. The live shows were prominently drawn from her last two "Honest Life" and "May your kindness remain". Two fabulous shows from a friendly and talented young lady and her excellent band.

Inbetween gigs I also managed to see "Funny Cow" - fantastic, uncompromising kitchen-sink drama allied with Samuel Beckett-esque themes. Thought Rodney Chitterton did OK too...

Saw Colin Blunstone and his band in Derby last Friday at the Flowerpot Pub. Not a huge venue but sold out with an audience profile slightly older than Richard’s. (I fitted in well!) Colin was in fine voice and his band is a really tight unit. Away from the Zombies, where Rod Argent tends to be the orator, Colin comes over as a really nice bloke and his anecdotes don’t rely on bad language or crudity – other rock stars take note! The set list includes a couple of Zombie hits but primarily features Colin’s own songs and those he made famous by other writers such as my favourite from the Alan Parsons Project “Old Wise”.

Looking forward to seeing the Zombies in Edinburgh in June!
