Ramblin’ Man Fair, 2nd Opinion – Saturday July 25th 2015

On Friday 24th July the weather was raining and very windy. This did not bode well for the first ever Ramblin’ Man Fair festival to be held at Mote Park Maidstone Kent on the weekend of the 25th and 26th July.
However, good old English weather prevailed and the morning of Saturday the 25th the rain stopped and the sun was out, there was still a good wind and this helped the ground dry out. This was what we wanted a great day to start this festival off.

Ramblin’ Man Fair, Highlights from Saturday July 25th 2015

What a difference a day makes. So sang Renee Olstead in the classic song from yesteryear. The day before the inaugural Ramblin Man Fair, the heavens opened and it looked like it could all be a washout. Then, it’s rumoured, Klaus Meine steps forward, has a word with the powers that be, pointing out that Scorpions “don’t do rain” and the day they headline is an absolute dream. Hot sunny weather, the middle of a beautiful country park in the heart of Kent (The Garden of England), real ale on draught (Iron Maiden’s Trooper Ale), a real ale tent and 3 stages containing the best that Classic Rock, Progressive Rock and Outlaw Country music have to offer.

FM, Romeo’s Daughter & No Hot Ashes, Live at the O2 Empire, Shepherds Bush, May 10th 2015

Since that pivotal show at Firefest in 2007, FM has gone from strength to strength. With more national airplay on both BBC Radio 2 and Planet Rock than they received ‘back in the day’, it is no surprise that the band is headlining the famous Shepherds Bush Empire for the fourth time.

FM – Heroes and Villains Review

Sometimes you have to feel sorry for FM. To consistently deliver albums of such high quality means that fans’ expectations go up and the band of course are under increasing pressure to come up with the goods every time. To say that they comfortably manage to produce those goods does them a disservice as I’m sure that the time and effort taken to write, record and produce the 12 tracks on the album is considerable.

Overland – Epic Review

As for Epic, it’s a great album, but again if you’re looking for something different from what he has done in the past, not going to find that here. Nothing wrong with that of course; when you have a sound as great as Overland there is no need to improve upon it.
