Caught Live: Cult of Wedge @ Wednesbury 19/04/13

#527: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! Regular visitors to ELO Beatles Forever (ELOBF) will doubtless know that Yours truly KJS is indeed proud to also highlight local musicians who are influenced by ELO/Jeff Lynne, The Beatles and associated artistes. And one of those cultured artistes who has been featured on here is Cult of Wedge alias Peter Hackett.

So when I had the opportunity to meet up with this erstwhile multi-instrumentalist and Maxi Dunn producer at (of all places!) Wednesbury Museum and Art Gallery last night (Friday 19th April) for a chat and to also witness his fifteen minute acoustic contribution to an evening of performances by local musicians in this unusual setting, I didn't need any persuasion to travel over and attend the gig.
And it was well worth it as Pete performed four songs on the night from both Cult Of Wedge albums "Tape Recorders Changed Everything" and "On The Green Seventy Seen" with acoustic renditions of "St. George And The Dragon""1977""On The Green Seventy Seen" and "Super Duper Sunshine Man". I really relished hearing these songs live and in person after they had become a familiar friend through my speakers and headphones - and my anticipation was justified.

Check out the music of Cult Of Wedge and some ELOBF album reviews here thus:
