While my lady was decorating one of our rooms the other day, she was playing some old cassette tapes, with a view to getting rid of any stuff that really was not needed.
Well, on one such day she was playing a cassette and thought “Is that really Joe Satriani playing Big Bad Moon? Then she recognized the vocal! It was Brian Cornish from the Off the Rails Band!
Off The Rails – a “Historical Document”!
The line up was, as far as I can remember, Brian (guitar and vocal), Jon Bourbon (harmonica), Mike Finding (Drums), Andy Waite, (Bass Guitar) we think and a certain Mr Jez Lee on lead guitar. This was, we think recorded at the Nelson Cheese and Ale House, Blandford Forum in Dorset, way back in the 90s. The recording gear was a tape player / recorder of SOME kind and I cannot for the life of me remember how or what!
Why would this sound like Joe Satriani? Have a listen and see what you think of Jez Lee’s guitar playing – he’s a most superb player and a real nice guy as well….
Listen to the MP3 from the tape
