Wendy and Jim played a gig on Saturday night (28th July) at the Half Moon in Putney. They were playing a warm up gig for Womad with Chris Difford. This was all very last minute, so sorry, no time to tell you about it. It was a good gig. This was Wendy's first live appearence since Hyde Park. It certainly did'nt show as the band rocked up the old Squeeze classics mixed in with some new songs from Chris's forthcoming album. Songs that stood out where 'Bombay' .. 'Killer Lines' and 'Goodbye Girl'. For this gig, Jim dusted off his bass guitar. He showed little signs of rust and rocked as good as he did for Skin Games. Given the heat, the Half Moon was of course a sweat box. But it mattered little. The band played great. Wendy sang superbly along side Chris, breathing new life into the old songs, but it was really the new songs which got the best reception.
There have been some changes at East/West, Wendy's label. The result being that her album will be put back until the new year! Bad news I know. Things may change, If they do i'll let you know. some gig news..Wendy will be playing with Chris Difford, the ex Squeeze guy at the Womad festival on 29th July. Check the Womad website for more details. Oh, by the way Johnny is back in the UK at present ...
Sounds like Wendy & Jim might have some more free time, what with Billie saying she's gonna quit the music industry. Is the rumour true - or has she just had another bad night out with Mr. Evans ??
