This is Noriko, of  George and Noriko  fame, at Coastella 2018 who, well best to let them tell you: George and Noriko break all the rules. The duo brings something unique, something unexpected. Known as the Japanese Blues Cowboy and the Tsugaru shamisen player, they have been kicking up a storm wherever they play.  George’s lightning fast blues licks & growling harmonica enhanced by Noriko’s percussive of the traditional Shamisen (Japanese banjo) has morphed into a kind of bluegrass hard country blues with a Japanese twist. It's quite something - go listen to their music, it's pretty bloody kick ass.

Greg Page - no longer the Yellow Wiggle

I had a surge (steady!) of visits last Thursday and after a wee hunt around the stats (yes, I know all about you) I've discovered that it was people looking for the latest on Greg "Yellow Wiggle" Page. Unfortunately most visitors went to my last article which was way out of date.

And so, the latest is Greg will no longer be the Yellow Wiggle as he has a (genetically predisposed) neurological disease called orthostatic intolerance. His understudy, Sam Moran, will take over the famed yellow shirt.
Greg has left a (14Mb) video message to all his fans.

I have to say it's an end of an era and I know Jack is quite sad by it all. So, Greg Page, if you ever get to read this, thanks for the awesome singing and being a part of my sons early childhood, you made it loads of fun.
