Henry Priestman

Honoured to be invited to play at the surprise party for legendary DJ Billy Butler at the Cavern last night, which he knew absolutely nothing about...they snuck him into the building via the backstage lift on the pretext that someone had been sick on the main stairs in...worked a treat, he appeared onstage to be confronted by his friends, a smattering of entertainers, plus some dodgy musicans (ie us lot: Pete Riley, Les Glover, Ian McNabb, Ian Prowse etc), all there to pay homage to the great man, who's helped us all so much with his support over the years.
Never played The Cavern before, so that's that one ticked off, and great to join in with the two Ians (McNabb & Prowse) on a spirited rendition of Twist and Shout.
Good on yer, Bill! 🙂

Came across this the other day, "The Sword Swallower" by Matisse, which we sort of nicked for the cover of the original The Christians demo tape that we sent out to record companies back in '86.
It got us the deal, cheers Henri!

Album cover for The Last mad Surge of Youth by Henry Priestman

“…compares favourably to Ray Davies. These are heart-warming self-assured songs from a man confidently declaring that he’s not done yet”

8/10

Uncut Magazine

“Clever crafted songwriting…full of proper tunes & grown-up words…a clever, wily,  literate writer”

****

R2 Magazine

“A lovingly crafted album… his fourth act might be his best”

****

Classic Pop Magazine

It’s all bound by Priestman’s songwriterly craft: some things age cannot whither”
