This is intended to be a homage to very many musicians I've loved since I started listening to music. My intention is to tell what I know about them, hoping that those people who like them too, will help me fill numerous gaps, which I may have in their careers and discographies. Sorry, but there are no MP3 audio files here at all, just info (and love for the musicians).

BIOGRAPHY:

What a great and prolific musician! Percussionist (also keyboardist), Morris Pert was born in Arbroath, Scotland in 1947. After finishing his musical studies, he played for 2 years with Stomu Yamash´ta (Buddha Red Theatre). Then, Morris formed his own band Suntreader. The list of his sessions is endless.

I´ve just received the very sad news (thanks to who wrote to me, I don´t know your name!) about Morris´ passing just yesterday (April 27th, 2010). He was found dead at his home in Balchrick, Scotland, on April 27th, 2010. So, as a tribute to him, I just publish in the blog the contents of my old page about Morris, but I´ll update it with more info very, very soon.

Rest in peace, Morris, and thanks for such wealth of music you gave to all of us!


QUATERMASS


According to John Gustafson, Morris Pert was a member of one of the latest lineups of Quatermass. I´m not sure but I guess this edition should be a trio with John Gustafson and Peter Robinson (maybe Mick Underwood had already left). Can someone tell me the details, please?


STOMU YAMASH´TA BAND (COME TO THE EDGE)


In October 1970, Stomu Yamash´ta forms a new band, this time called Come To The Edge:

Suntreader was Morris Pert´s own band, but I still have to write the details about this band.

  • Goose grease - John Gustafson (1997)

    • Members: John Gustafson
    • Guests: B J Cole, Jeff Daly, Tony Hymas, Henry Lowther, Mike Moran, Ann Odell, Stretch, Mark Warner (RIP: Barry De Souza, Morris Pert)
    • Comments: John Gustafson, apart from the singles he released in the sixties, only has a solo album, Goose grease. But the interesting story is that he recorded it in 1976, but remained unreleased until 1997, when it has been issued on CD, remastered by old fellow Ray Fenwick.
    • My opinion: It's a very interesting album, quite funky. The performances are superb, especially Mark Warner (you just have to listen to him in the track 'Cheap Astrakhan', as well as the solos on 'Boogie woogie' or 'What's your game?'). B.J. Cole is also fantastic on 'Poem about a gnome' or 'Freshness'. As I've said, the album was recorded in 1976, at Ramport Studios, London. Thanks to splendid record label Angel Air, we've been lucky to be able to listen to it.
