Mark Smallman is a local legend in his own right, having kicked about in various incarnations of Rolling Zones / Rolling Clones and what not, for aaaaages. The current incarnation PURPLE FISH, who I’ve worked with a few times in the past, maintain the high quality control, with your average performance being nothing short of brilliance.
On Friday November 22nd, Purple Fish will be donning a new musical identity and giving Pink Floyds “Dark Side Of The Moon” a full performance at The Corn Exchange in Devizes. I’ve not seen this show, but I guarantee they will do the album and stage show justice.
Sticking my neck on the line, I’m also going to say it’s likely to be a better show than the last tribute at the Corn Exchange, when earlier this year a Led Zepplin tribute came to town and gave us a waltz through their back catalogue. The problem being that the audience were louder than the band. Not in keeping with the loudest band in the world!
Tickets for Dark Side Of The Fish, are priced £15 and available from Devizes books. Money raised from the show will be also be donated to Wiltshire Air Ambulance, with the show being sponsored by estate agent, Martin Walker.
Support comes from the incredibly handsome Ben Maggs of Cirencester. A regular soloist in Swindon, I’ve somehow managed to avoid engineering him over the past 6 or 7 years I’ve been working in Swindon. Yet I know he comes with a good reputation.
