rith Pete on stape, he but r acts magnifioentlyr and sin pretty well when hets require to. The whole affair is Performed superbl-y, the danc5-ng is great and" the live band is as p;rfect as you c4n get. Most of the revierrs of Tomrny ha've saj.d that if ;rou don!t already know .the storyr itf s practiaally irnpossible to deduce it from the play this isnrt real1y tnre r &s the story line is shown pretty clearly, but the words are rlndistin'' guishable, especially frCIm the narrator, sci sonething is defenifeLy rnissing. During the overture, the singing of See Me, Feel lt{e litera}ly sent a shiver d'own rny apine; and lasers are used vcr'f, e fective)"y when Tonmyts father is shot down" The rest of the first half foll orvs Tonmyrs experience as a boy, and at th hands of .Cousin it-evin, Unsle Ernie and the acid tlueen' 'fhatrs protr* , ably the most effective pa::t 6r the show * Uousin Kevin (a punk) and uncle Ernie (com* Fiddle About And,revs shov Toqrnshend

the second-, half is not so goclti somehow the whole enlightening anrL rise to power of Tom"ly is less effective, Ernd some of the proceedings a::entt clear at all Sally Simpson is done really welL ( cy rag clolls) but the story of it is lost completely. And the only bad bit of the eveining - Tommyr s taken down from the cross, after singing see Me, Feel lle , and it' s tirne for the best fihale to any song ever written. Rut insteld of a raucous ,Listening To You sung by Tornny, itrs a soft solon rlu.et & trio by narrator, mother and father, ','hich nrins it. l{owever everyone.eomes baek for an amazing uninvited encore, and in the last minute of that the place real-ly takes off . l0 out oI 19 to the band (espe":ially the Moon-like drummer) for a PERFT1CT perform&ocâ&#x201A;Ź. ,l great show.

Rut the rnain question does it match the ulel-l- you eertainllr get a lot out of seein5l a l-ive show, but then the film has al-l- those anazrng scenes (and The 'tVho). Alson the filn is a lot cheaper the play is f.? .t}-f.1.5C, and evn though that obviou,;ly only just covers eosts, is a 1st. But if you want to see a real, live good music'1l , gn to this-you won't be disapp-

.you"ng moderns 'N,s A brave Rew band for Bill Nelson ex-leader of Be-'rop Deluxe, Buitarist extroadinaire, poetie

lyrieist , sel f--"tyled song"rriter, and a . very lnteresting person. fdoq he I s got a new group - RBD \0ISr,l and Rritain hrs .just been exposed to L,P, singlet and tour, nore of whleh later. The follo*ing interview took plaee in an old einema at Brixton 'ryhere Red Noise were rehearsing for their tour. It proved to be one of the best Jammingt s ever done r so here goes for the defenitive (tratfra) Bill Nelson intervier: .

JA],{}lIt[Gr How d1d you Fo about doing

your, solo LP? gILIr ITELSO-}S: That r LoTd Of The Dream? Ilellr. it 'tas the first bateh of song€ frd ever -ritten that I wasnrt too ashaned about, and some friends 'rho orned a record store in Wakefield (Yorhshire, his birth plaee) fraa the moh.y to make it. It was just done 1Oe4l1y in d, snal1 studio, and rr€ ha<l

.it .vitinted off by the loeal newslnper I drer the front cover, A fridnd took the photogranhs r e.ild *ve .just 'hrd 25O done. It was totally home-m de fron start to finish; and we useC to sell it around lfakefield. J:Hov did Be-Bop :)eluxe come about? BN:It was forned rea11y out of f::ustratr ion at the ba.nds that had been pl"-ying around Wakefieldr and were ctoing Just covera and things. And by the tine lll,lI first eottoned onto The Lord 0f The Dream alburn, Itd got Re-Bop i)eluxe in it I s initial forrn together, and ile

tere gigging loeally, so thqt rphgn rrul asked me to go do-n witha view to signing a,s a solo :.rtist, f took a tane to nlayr :rnd some photographsr & eventuelly persu'ded the to come and see us ple"yr and do aurlitions and things. J:Why were there so mq.ny line-up ch"n'ges q"t first ? FN: Basically, bec".use the people 'rho r"ere in the first band w''':!ie th're nainly because they were friends, rather than good musieians or "n]'rthing. And as it hoeame necessArv t,o set better as ason6Srriter, 1t neeoed nore comtretent musfei.ns.io be able to PlaY it, so I just'hati to stoP q.nd st?.rt again'

yes; I think for me as a Person, f tm not sure. I live in fear of these gigs in one rr&)r because.. 'rf m frightened people might exPect it to be Be*BoP ],ik.

J:0ne musician said that a b';'nd- could only stay togt:ther for 5 or (, years & then it got sta.le. i.lo you agiee 'rrith f I r.t./ RN:Itrs very true 5 or 6 years is pushing it. One of the things Irm <loing lvith the new band is not have fixed personalities; with Re-Bopr everY person r,vas a f'art of the total image, . and 'qith Red Noise I've hired everybody.on a,session uasts rather than being a 4th share or Stfr sh,.re or somethingr so it I s rrelly much rnore flexible.

But if you do wanr, to get up and enjoy yourselfr you're welcomeg. noonets going to stop ;rou...tr and that statemant was really needed it loosened the atmosphere a 1ot. Substitute Flesh and Radar In t-,Iy Heart werenrt the right songs to get up to, but Art/Enpire /Ind.ustr;r got a large reaction and al tl€ end of it, halF the crowd surged' to the f::ont. Incredibly (=ttrat soon) r Bill announced the last song and. next single Revolts Into Style and after a few seeond.s the remaining se""ted people rose rhich is hard. to d.enyr especially on as a nass r &Dd this was it -this was what Ird been waiting for. The whole crowd the only weak track, Radar In l/Iy Heartt but generally, this group exceed every- pogoed (y"", pogoed. I didnt t expect it either) as a mass, and" the heat started thing you ever hoPed XTC would do. Substitute Flesh has an XTC- bype middLe' generrting. But listen Bill , if youtd horever, while Art/Empire/tntlustry is I p.l.*y",' The Lyceium (on1y aeross the road) great but too much like Sleep That Burnsl it 'voulC have held iust as mani r it ior comfort.

Donrt think the clubs are THAT eomplaining? Stay Young is the sort of bad. epic youtd. expect from the title', and that gives me 2 other songs I want to It was the last number, but nobod'y wert Revol'ts and Young laoderns For as they returned. for Stalr Young ( for rnention Into otyle. For Young }ie66'"r1" is made Simon Fox & Charlie Turnahai) . The song so happy by that keyboard world again' & was memorable, but the came back for a lo-ninrrte Young Moderns, and that was the lyrics which mean eonethin| uhile perfStyle album just 10 rninutes of pure red noj-se.
