Moore:Music ®

Witch Cross • BC Sweet • Gonads • Christie


This is normally something I’d post in my Want Some Moore blog, as it is a song I wrote to accompany one of my comedy ‘rants’ that I have the privilege of presenting on Bay Radio. Bay Radio is an English language station with a listenership of over 1 million, that broadcasts along the Spanish costas, from Valencia all the way down to Almeria. I feature twice a week, on The Sunset Strip, Friday nights 9.30pm CET, and The Sunday Brunch, around noon CET. Find out how to listen live by clicking on the icon.

Anyway, the theme for this week is feminine logic, ‘flogic’ for short – and please ladies, don’t kill me, because it’s all very tongue in cheek, and a bit of fun. I really enjoyed writing the track. (If you want to hear the rant too, tune into Bay, or check back on my Want some Moore blog next week, when I’ll put it up on a player)

It’s a funky kind of thing, with a nice bass line, and very choppy staccato guitars, and a lovely contrasting guest vocal from Kay Frances, whose album I produced a few months back.  The guitar ‘solo’  such as it is, was a bit of an experiment, removing the low E and tuning Keith Richard style, and giving it a ‘chordy’ sort of vibe. enjoy!

Tufty Gordon drops in

Tufty and me

It’s often said that “it’s a small world”. Well it sure is. Some days ago, I was invited to speak about my career in front of The Dames of Turre – a charitable organization of ex-pat ladies who meet regularly in our village.  Their leader, Jean, mentioned that she’d met a certain entertainer while on a Caribbean cruise, and that he was currently touring around Spain and was due to pay a visit on them this week. She asked if I knew him: “Tufty Gordon is his name” she said. Well, when you’ve been a pro muso for over 30 years, as I have, you cannot fail to have heard of Tufty. He’s been in the business for 55 years as a professional sax player and compere, (particularly hosting events for The Stage) and in fact interviewed me some years ago on stage when I was about to take my solo rock show out to the Caribbean on the ship ‘Ocean Village’. Tufty has played for the likes of Joe Cocker, my old friend Tony Christie and many, many others.  Jean arranged for me to meet up with him down on Mojacar playa. It was great to catch up with him and his lovely wife, Sylvia, and he kindly offered to lay down some sax in my studio while he was in town.  So today, I played him my latest work in progress: “Statue of Only Me” – a song from my next album and also to be featured on my Bay Radio spot next month. After a few listens and run throughs, he put down some great tenor lines which I’ll now spend the next few days editing and arranging.  I’m truly indebted to him for his generosity, and was happy to catch up with him again in ‘my own back yard’. Cheers Tufty!
