Wayne Hussey will be making a welcome return to South Africa in May to play a series of 4 solo shows in support of the release of his solo album 'Songs Of Candlelight & Razorblades'. It'll be the first shows in South Africa by either Wayne or The Mission since 2006! The shows will be:
Fri. 8th, Sat. 9th May: Barnyard Theatre, Sunninghill, Rivonia
Sun. 10th: Barnyard Theatre, Parkview, Pretoria
& Mon. 11th: Barnyard Theatre, Willowbridge, Cape Town.
Ticket information will follow shortly.

Wayne promises that the shows will pretty much follow the form of his recent European tour and will feature songs from his new album, classic and lesser known Mission songs, as well as a selection
of suitably maverick & idiosyncratic cover versions.
Wayne: 'This'll be my 5th or 6th time in South Africa and I've always had a great time there, always been made to feel very welcome. I've made some very good friends there on previous visits so it'll be good to meet up with them again. And it'll be good to see my old nemesis, Barney Simon, and resurrect our heated football discussions. I'm a red and he's a blue. Sounds like a song in there somewhere. And going back to Cape Town too, but hope I see more of it than I did last time which was basically the inside of a club and a hotel room. I'm looking forward to this, it's been too damn long!'
5 rare shows have been confirmed for next year. The timing of the shows may well have something to do with the fact that The Mission are making a few festival appearances around the same time but then again we could be wrong. The Blood Brothers are a law unto themselves.
The Blood Brothers will be playing at:
Asked to comment on the BB’s return, singer and guitarist Albie Mischenzingerzen commented: “After the last Blood Brother shows I had to go into rehab for a while and when I came out I’ve been doing this creative therapy course for the last year or so. Managed to make a solo album called ‘Album Of The Year’. You’ll find it at all the best record stores and I’m sure it’ll get mentioned in all the end-of-year issues of all the music magazines. I feel like I’ve got my mojo back so will have to be very careful not to overdo it on these band shows as rehab is too expensive to go through again. It’ll be good to meet up with the lads again, it feels like it’s a been a long while. You know I’m not as sprightly as I once was and my hip has been playing me up a bit recently too so I doubt I’ll be doing much rolling around the stage at these shows. I will be rocking though!”

To say that Jimmy Webb is one of the last of a breed would imply that there is or ever was anyone quite like him. Jimmy Webb has influenced generations of musicians worldwide from Billy Joel to John Mayer and Keith Urban to Rumer. Webb is the man who gave the world what has been called “the first existential country song” (“The Highwayman”) and confounded generations of radio listeners with the brilliance of a lyric about a cake left out in the rain (“MacArthur Park”). Webb has topped the country, disco and pop music charts with a list of artists astounding in its diversity and he remains a trailblazer among songwriters 50 years after his first hit. Webb now brings his multi-platinum playlist on the road in an intimate evening of songs and stories not to be missed.

Congratulations to Wayne Hussey on his top forty album, 'Songs of Candlelight And Razorblades' out now on Eyes Wide Shut Recordings.
After 13 years of calling my company 'Extreme Music Production', I have decided to change the name. The idea was born in a dressing room in deepest, darkest South America last week in a discussion between Craig Adams and Wayne Hussey, where Wayne emitted the immortal words, 'that would be a good name for your management company'. It seemed to all just make sense, so...I will now respond to, receive cheques and prosper forthwith under the name:
Isn't it time you had some ?
