Looking forward to our concert at "Folk on the Dock" this Saturday, and just found out that my old band The Christians are playing the same venue (The Tate, Liverpool) on Friday...hey, why not do both?
Hopefully we’ll perform with same intensity that caused me to break a bongo skin the last time Les, Pete and I played together (see pic!), plus we have our special guest Pete Whitfield (who did all the wonderful string arrangements on the those Christians albums, and on my solo ones) joining us on fiddle.

Just found this in a drawer..the original The Christians demo tape that we sent out, with hand-crafted artwork by my wife (after Matisse!).
Every record company turned us down (except Island Records - who we signed to - and my good friend Andrew Lauder at his indy label).
One label said they didn't hear any singles on the contained Ideal World, Hooverville, Born Again (see link) and One in a Million...three of those would go on to be top 30 singles...

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”


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”


Q Magazine
