Magic Band Sells Out London and Edinburgh
On Friday January 23rd The Magic Band feathuring Gary, John French, Denny
Walley and Mark Boston triumphed before a sold-out screaming crowd of
2000 plus rabid Beefheart fanatics at London's famed Royal Festival
Hall—then repeated the magic the next night in the intimate confines of
Edinburgh's Liquid Room. This was the band's second major appearance in
London this year following their spectacular debut last April at
Shepard's Bush Empire, and the group did not disappoint the second time
around—particular highlights were an extended version of "Mirror Man"
and for diehard fans a real blast from the past, a stomping version of
the first Beefheart single "Diddy Wah Diddy".
