23/08/15 update….”veritable media blitz”, etc

Just taking a bit of a break before the autumn onslaught of gigs, time to get a newsletter sorted.

This last month there’s been a veritable media blitz on me (well, I call two bits of Henry P media coverage, a “blitz”!).

Paul Skillen interviews HP on Bay TV’s Scouse Pop programme

Bay TV in Liverpool filmed an in-depth interview with me earlier in the year, and this was broadcast in late July as the opening one hour long programme in their “Scouse Pop” TV series.
Paul Skillen, the interviewer, really knew his stuff and put me… Continue reading

10.07.15 Update…60’s the new 40, “Old” T shirts, and Renaissance men!

Been a wonderful month or so…firstly I have to thank everyone who sent their best wishes to me (literally hundreds of people, mostly via Facebook) for my 60th birthday in June…made an old man very happy….I’m actually appearing even older at the mo, as I’m still having to sit on a stool at gigs, being not fully recovered from my hernia op earlier in the year. Don’t worry, even seated I can still give it loads, especially with trusty Loved up Les at my side, and I’ll be back standing up and stomping before you know it!

17/05/15 update…Hernia, Les’ album and Paella!

Been a bit tardy updating the website…mitigating circumstances, m’lud, had a hernia op 3 weeks ago (which seems to have all gone fine) and have kept on meaning to get round to doing a new blog/news update here…and whilst I’ve been putting up my regular little snippets on Facebook, I’m aware some people aren’t on FB (or hate it!), so I endeavour to put something up here every month or so..so here goes:

There's no greater compliment that can be paid to the album [The Last Mad Surge of Youth] than to say quite plainly that it's a really enjoyable album, one for repeated listening and guaranteed to touch a nerve of some sort for fans of a certain age who will enjoy the ponderings and contemplations"

Any XBox owners remember this?...a song I wrote for James Bond 007 Nightfire game...I never played the game, was it any good?
Co-writer Paul Campbell (and ex-guitarist for The Christians) & I never understood why singer Esthero didn't put it on a an album: she wrote some great lyrics for it, and it's a stunning vocal (singers, eh?!)

Pleased to announce that for the added show at Liverpool’s Lantern Theatre on Dec 11th (Dec 12th has sold out) my special guest – and joining me on a few oldies too – will be John Reilly.
John kindly invited me to support him and his band Boy on a Dolphin for their Christmas Concert at Sheffield City Hall last year, so least I can do is return the favour – tho’ somehow I feel I’m getting the better deal, seeing as in Sheffield Les and I played to 1500 people, whereas the Lantern Liverpool holds around 75 (but 75 beautiful people, mind!).
John’ll be playing his own concert in Liverpool before then, at a “lazy Sunday afternoon” concert at Parr Street Studio 2 on Oct 11th…check him out, what a voice!
