TV Smith New Church Shock! I Ain't Coming Save Yourself
« on: February 08, 2014, 06:20:44 PM »
So there I was on Thursday 6th evening with the MD of my latest customer and two of my recent coachees (who are both Pub Managers  :o ) in a new Leeds bar opposite the market. When suddenly this bloke starts interviewing someone. The whole room went deathly quite. There was even someone officially filming the interview. Then I noticed all the huge photographs around the room (including one of Ronald Reagan). Almost everyone was transfixed in total admiration.

I was more excited about the Magic Rock High Wire NZ on tap.

I leant over to Matt the Pub Manager and whispered "mind you I'd be transfixed like these if he was interviewing my favourite singer-songwriter; TV Smith". As soon as I turned back round to face the show the interviewer asked him which band he had been in...

"THE LORDS OF THE NEW CHURCH!"

You could have knocked me over with a feather.

Does "he" have a name too? It's not like the Lords have had hundreds of band members...  :-\

Alistair Ward

Isn't that some Wikipedia misinformation? I am still waiting for Brian J. or Dave T. or anyone to confirm Algy played for Lords...
Alistair Simmons is a name confirmed by Brian to have performed in the Lords on 2nd guitar at some point in time.

I've emailed somone who I was with and asked him what the photgrapher was called.

I'm not really a detail person like you Uli. :)

Is there something wrong with my computer?

Do I need new glasses?

You are Mr Lists and the devil is in the detail of your musical and twig juice preferences!






































But then again, it might have been a spot of sarcasm...

Not just Wiki. Every-f***ing-where. I was duped. :)

Anyway, I've just wasted 5 minutes trying to find out who the other Alistair (Simmons) was and he doesn't seem to have existed outside the ''...a 2nd guitarist was hired and immediately sacked..'' quotes.

Obviously didn't have much of a career then.

I think the list things comes from growing up with Smit who is very analytical Fred. He's rubbed off on me.

Oooer! Missus!

I've just found out that the photographer who was once a member of Lords of the New Chusrch, or so he claimed live on stage during the recorded interview, was Dean Cavanagh.

Hope that helps.

I noticed he wasnt on your shortlist of names.

...Or should that be Lords?

Maybe he wasn't a full-time member?

A Google search reveals he's not really known as a photographer but "an award-winning screenwriter, film and TV producer and internationally acclaimed artist "...

We only caught the start of his interview. There were loads of people in the bar to watch the interview.
