Wishing you all a good new year - a healthy, happy and peaceful one. All the best from Fidycat !
I've some new videos up on youtube - have a look via this link : https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=Fidycat
I've opened a new 'Soundcloud' page with lots of audio clips from my band days. Have a look and browse down the list - there are a few gems which make me lift my hat to some great players I've had the good fortune of sharing a stage (or a studio) with over the decades. Enjoy - I've certainly had a lot of pleasure in compiling it.
All the best, Fidycat... https://soundcloud.com/the-bands-1
Recording underway (at long last) of 'Laurentia', a song inspired by Scotland's astounding 400 million year old geological history. The Laurentian continental plate 'collided' with the Avalonian plate and when Laurentia eventually broke away westwards to form Greenland and North America, it left what would become Scotland behind, welded to the north-western fringe of what would become Europe and at the very line (the Cheviot Hills) that would become the border between Scotland & England. As the song says, "...just maybe, we are the very rocks beneath our feet...". Hollywood couldn't have dreamed this one up, an example of truth sometimes being breathtakingly more exciting than fiction...
Wishing you all a great time over the festive season - and good health throughout 2014.
Great to hear from you Robert ( sorry, Bob ! ). It would be terrific to swap info, pics and memories. I have your '77 Cathkin recordings on CD which I'll give you a copy of. Unfortunately they sound like copies of copies so the quality has suffered - however they do exist. I had always hoped for the original to surface, so it is a pity if they've gone. So sad to have lost Tommy in '09 - he'd been in Jersey of course. I used to speak to him on the phone regularly, then lost touch.
If you can supply your email address to firstname.lastname@example.org, we'll take it from there.
Happy new year meanwhile,
all the best, Brian...
I have only just stumbled on all of the material you have posted on the web (shame on me) and must congratulate you on your patience to pull a lot of it together. Some of it has come as a shock! It would would be good to get back in touch after all these years, I have fond memories and some pictures etc from those heady days in the past, like at the Cathkin Hotel, sadly I don't have the live tapes anymore!
Re the last post, forgot to include (shame on me) John Farrel, vocalist with High Emotion / Agatha's Moment during 1968. It was he who dreamed up the name 'Agatha's Moment' which was adopted in June of that year, as well as producing the band's artwork and posters. If you know how he's doing, please let me know !
Great to meet up recently with old band mate Ronnie Black ( bassman & vocalist with High Emotion / Agatha's Moment ), swapping memories and photos from the late '60s. Wonder though what became of Jimmy Ross (drums), Chic Warner (sax/flute/vocals), Andy Roberts (guitar), Harvey Freedman (guitar), Dave Nelson (vocals)...anyone out there know.... ?
Just suggested to Ashleigh (Ettleman) that a new recording of 'Horizon' with her vocal magic added might work well. The lady's up for it, so that's a definite project for the near future - looking forward to it lass...X
Spending some time in south Catalunya - a mixture of hard work and a little bit of chill out time. Ok, that's the chillout time up - back to the grind !
That should be 'Brian Hardie' (not Hardy)....
Trying to trace a Brian Hardy - Glasgow lead guitarist from the mid to late '60s. He played with the 'Viscounts' and later 'Price' - any info of him then or now appreciated, Many thanks, Fidycat.
Greetings Derek - aye, still pluggin' !
Wishing you all the best over the festive season - have a good 'un,

You'll find audio clips, pics and details of musicians & who they've collaborated with.
Enjoy the Scotbands time machine,
My grandchildren are certainly finding their musical feet. While Erin's been busy recording & videoing 'Monday' in Scotland, my Manchester grandweans have also been busy. Sam has attained good grades on trumpet and is now learning guitar, while sister Ashleigh has been making smashing progress on flute. The big surprise has come through Ashleigh's vocal skills on covers of current / recent chart hits. At only fifteen years of age her sensitive yet mature renditions of songs by Adele, Rihanna etc have blown me away. Stand aside - here comes the new generation....
Well done to you and Erin on putting together 'Monday' its fab and im very proud. x x x x x
