Terry Reid & The Cosmic American Derelicts
‘A triumph...Terry Reid’s voice has the power to provoke an intense reaction...’ – 4 Stars -The Times

‘...Astonishing by any standards: spine tingles, hair prickles on back of the neck...’ The Independent

Terry Reid, Superlungs as he’s affectionately known, is without doubt one of the greatest rock/soul voices this country has ever produced or is indeed likely to. A Terry Reid concert should be a cherished memory for any self-respecting fan of the greats of British music.

The legend is of turning down the front man’s job with Led Zeppelin, recommending his mate Robert Plant instead, a similar offer and rebuff to Deep Purple; of Aretha Franklin’s statement that The Beatles, Rolling Stones and Terry Reid were the best England had to offer in 1968, of two World Tours with The Rolling Stones, US tours with Cream, UK tours with Jethro Tull and Fleetwood Mac, The Isle of White Festival in 1969 and Glastonbury in 1970, playing at Mick Jagger’s wedding, then soured record deals and leaving Britain for America nearly 40 years ago.

All true, but the full story includes numerous collaborations with Graham Nash, who produced Reid’s 1976 album Seed of Memory; covers of Reid songs by Marianne Faithfull, The Hollies, The Raconteurs (the hugely popular Rich Kid Blues), Cheap Trick and in 2012 Rumer included Brave

Awakening on her album Boys Don’t Cry. Reid songs have featured on film soundtracks, including a song in George Clooney’s film Up In The Air and several tracks on Rob Zombie’s The Devil’s Rejects.

There is a catalogue of 6 studio albums, including the seminal album The River, re-released to critical acclaim in 2014 (9/10 Uncut) and the 1976 Nash produced Seed of Memory (also available from BGO Records. A Reid song – Horses Through a Rainstorm, which Reid originally recorded as Without Expression - also features on Crosby, Still & Nash’s box set.

Following appearances at Womad and a Glastonbury return in 2009, he played a three night residency at Ronnie Scott’s in London, one of only a handful of non-Jazz artists invited to help mark the legendary venue’s 50th Anniversary. He played to packed houses and critical acclaim and returned in 2010 and 2011 to sell out 3 consecutive nights.

In May 2011, he toured Ireland for the first time in 30 years and released a new live album Live In London, which included several previously unreleased tracks. A return to Glastonbury, headlining the Spirit of ‘71 stage followed.

2012 turned out to be an important year for Terry Reid. He returned to the Isle of Wight Festival for the first time since 1971. In the spring, DJ Shadow had invited Terry to write the lyrics to a new track for his forthcoming Reconstructed album - This became the song Listen and the official video got 400,000 plays on Youtube.

Reid toured the UK again in 2013 and 2014, including a trip to Sweden for a sold out show, a successful return to The Jazz Café and 2 performances at The Borderline, which included a performance of the whole of Seed of Memory. With the recent re-mastering and re-release of the albums The River, Rogue Waves and Seed of Memory and a new generation of fans which includes the likes of Jake Bugg, Rumer and Michael Kiwanuka, not to mention musical collaborations with Johnny Depp and Joe Perry (Aerosmith), it’s clear that there is an undeniable resurgence in recognition for this outstanding vocalist and songwriter and 2017 looks set to be another successful year!

Prolific British-rock inspired singer-songwriter Edward Rogers is gearing up to release his seventh solo album, TV Generation, via Zip Records on June 9th. In the tradition of Ray Davies, Ian Dury and Kevin Ayers, TV Generation pairs Rogers’ authentic and reflective lyricism with his powerful melodic voice creating an album that is grounded firmly in Britrock and English baroque. A veritable who’s who of seminal, established artists, he was joined in the studio by several talented musicians that have been well established in their genre for decades, including the albums producer Don Piper (Syd Straw). James Mastro (Ian Hunter), Sal Maida (Roxy Music, Cracker), Dennis Diken (Smithereens), Geoff Blythe (Dexys, Black 47), Jane Scarpantoni (Lou Reed) and more!

TV Generation kicks off with the title track that resonates with an electric (and at times psychedelic) throwback to the late 70’s and early 80’s - leading into Rogers' nostalgic and heartfelt tribute to fallen icons, "20th Century Heroes". The third track “No Words” slips gently into an Elvis Costello-esque ballad - theatrical and sober with an emotional force behind Edwards vocals. “On This Wednesday In June” brings the relaxed almost conversational tone of Lou Reed, building into an explosive anthem, while “You and I” brings the record into an intimate light ending in the comfort of a light timpani and Beatles-inspired mellotron. TV Generation ends on the driving fire of “She’s The One” stacking up the energy of the album and leaving you wanting more.

Born in Birmingham, England where he spent the first 12 years of his life, Rogers moved to New York City just as the British Invasion began in the States. He started his career behind the drumkit, which he played in several garage bands. When a subway accident in October 1985 left him without his right arm and right leg below the knee, he turned to songwriting. As he developed his writing talents, Edward found he enjoyed singing and writing more rewarding than playing drums. Over the past decade, he has released six solo albums - the latest being Glass Marble, heralded by Elmore Magazine who said, “He's the perfect singer/songwriter, the ideal personification of Brit Rock superiority. (Glass Marbles)...a sumptuous treat from start to finish."

Edward Rogers co-hosts the popular radio show, Atlantic Tunnel which airs weekly on Little Water Radio.
