This is the review of the Credo, Alan Reed gig at Rotherham.  An excellent review, thanks to John O'Boyle.
Please support The Peel and Live Music, and get over to Kingston Upon Thames on Saturday, to join Credo in their Album Launch Party.

Thanks.

Really looking forward to this gig (even if the Peel is a real pain to get to). The album is getting better with each play and will definitely finish the year on my top few albums. Well worth the wait.

This is a review about Against Reason posted on the classicrockmagazine.com site by Malcolm Dome. 

On the prog side, Credo offer up melody and thoughtfully understated musicianship on Against Reason (Festival Music). Now 20 years old, this British band once more show the value of knowing how to keep songs sharp and structured. They also have a certain joyous, tumbling energy, which makes the album entertaining.”

There is also joyous, tumbling energy in their live shows, and some "stand-up comedy"!!!

CREDO, ABEL GANZ AND COMEDY OF ERRORS ARE HOSTING A SCOTTISH PROG EVENING AT THE FERRY, GLASGOW on 20th May

Credo are proud to be back with their new release “Against Reason”, which is receiving fantastic reviews.   Jim Murdoch and Tim Birrell (Co-Founders of Credo) are Scottish from outside of Glasgow.  It has always been their dream to play at The Ferry. 
 
Comedy of Errors, the re-born Scottish Neo-Prog legends last played together about twenty years ago.  They have all been busy working on different projects.  The fans of Comedy of Errors wanted the band to reform, which they did a couple of years ago, and have been working on a new album.  Their first gig back together will be at The Scottish Prog evening on the 20th.  Look out for erstwhile Ganz keyboards maestro Hew Montgomery making an appearance with the Errors on . . . . bass?!!
 
Abel Ganz are especially looking forward to this gig, since it is their first show in our own home town for some time.  Abel Ganz will be playing  festivals in Blackpool and Kingston.

Scottish Progressive Rock Special, The Ferry 20th May 2011.

The Ferry presents a unique opportunity to experience the best in contemporary progressive rock from three bands based in, or originating, from Scotland – CREDO, ABEL GANZ and COMEDY OF ERRORS.

CREDO

CREDO has its roots in Scotland as far back as the 1970s and for founding members Tim Birrell (guitar) and Jim Murdoch (bass), this landmark gig - as part of the Against Reason European Tour celebrating the launch in April 2011 of the band’s third album Against Reason - marks a return to Glasgow and their beloved Ferry after over 30 years’ absence.  Like the finest malt, Credo has been lovingly matured (in admittedly English barrels) over the years, also distilling the superb musicianship of Mark Colton (vocals), Mike Varty (keyboards) and Martin Meads (drums) along the way.  Having gained widespread acclaim and critical reviews for their 2nd album – Rhetoric – “Against Reason” is set to follow on in tremendous style.  This is big music - powerful melodies, lyrical challenges and a blistering live act not to be missed.  Which all goes to show that you can take the band out of Scotland, but you can never take Scotland out of the band.

"This is just an album of pure and sublime brilliance." John O'Boyle, Sea of Tranquility April 2011

"Now 20 years old, this British band once more show the value of knowing how to keep songs sharp and structured. They also have a certain joyous, tumbling energy, which makes the album entertaining. “Malcolm Dome 22nd April www.classicrockmagazine.com

ABEL GANZ

Glasgow progressive rockers ABEL GANZ can also boast a long and illustrious history.  Formed in 1980, they can claim to have brought former Pallas vocalist Alan Reed to the public’s attention on their first album Gratuitous Flash released in 1984. With five albums in succession, they were frequent players on the Scottish stage during the 1980s and ‘90s.  Returning stronger than ever in 2008 with the critically acclaimed album Shooting Albatross, they have now gained a worldwide audience.  Work is well under way with a follow up album and Abel Ganz will be treating us to tracks from them both at the Ferry.

COMEDY OF ERRORS

This will be Comedy of Errors first live gig in 20 years.  Not the most typical band of the prog scene, Comedy Of Errors formed nebulously in the wake of the neo prog revival, members coming from in and around the Glasgow area, Scotland. As a new era beckons they have released their debut album ' DISOBEY ' ...occasionally futuristic but with a glance back to the classic, anthemic, epic flashes of renaissance style harmony - Floyd meets Muse in the Court of the Gentle Giant ?..well maybe. There is a focus and intensity in every song, each a mini epic in it's own right..something that doesn't derive of a subconscious attempt to emulate heroes from yesteryear..Dare I say it..Comedy Of Errors are a bit different.

I went to the gig, and what  a great night it was. I hadn't heard any Comedy of Errors before, so I was not sure what to expect. They played an instrumental called Prelude, Riff and Fugue which was sensational. When it began (with harpsichord) it had echoes of Focus, but when the guitar solo came in it had me purring with delight. I bought the album there and then and it is excellent. Abel Ganz were next up They didn't play So Far, which was a bit disappointing, but they did play some new material which sounded very good. Credo were fabulous and what a good sound they had. You could hear every word of the lyrics. These guys can play.
