Lots of news on the Immaculate Fools front – the album tracks are now all recorded and mixing is in progress. I am very lucky to have great musicians and support and everything sounds wonderful. The first two dates in Spain are now confirmed and tickets are on sale. Other dates in Spain and other parts of Europe will follow later in the summer. Very excited to have the chance to come and play to friends new and old and can’t wait to let you hear what we have been up to.

Dirty Ray at the Heart of Rock & Blues Festival June 7th 2014

Dirty Ray and Pre Sleep MonologueRay is well chuffed to be playing with Pre Sleep Monologue at the Heart of Blues and Rock Festival this weekend in Builth Wells. There are some great acts lined up and tickets can still be bought on the gate. It would be wonderful to see you there supporting this local festival and enjoying some fine acts including Jared James Nichols and the legendary Steve Gibbons. There are 2 indoor stages featuring over 30 bands over the weekend plus free parking and free camping too. See link below for more info.

Ray recorded an EP with Pre Sleep Monlogue in early 2012 which is still available from the PSM website (link below). Featuring reworking of tracks from Ray’s debut solo album, Primitive, (and a rather special Cpt Beefheart cover) the half dozen tracks demonstrate just how well these artists work together. Yours for only four of your British pounds.

Ray & Linda on the TV

As many of you may know Ray was a pretty big star in Spain in the late eighties. Back then he was someone else and with his band the Immaculate Fools toured many times, playing to big crowds and selling albums galore. Even now Ray is very well known in Spain so it is not really surprising that his new album with Linda Lamb got a plug on the Galician version of the News at Ten. As the man says, if my Spanish is correct:  ‘one of the most succesful bands in Spain – and especially in Galicia’. Here is the clip.
Some have said that the clip will not play so if you are having problems here is a link direct to the Spanish TV site. Ray & Linda on Spanish Telly

Dirty Ray & Linda Lamb – A man like this – New video

It’s been a while since the website had any updates but I hope you agree this was worth waiting for. A man like this is the title track from Ray and Linda’s new album (sort of) . The video was directed and produced by the very talented Adam Fuest. You can hear more from the album and buy copies for all your friends at the link below:

Hello I am Back

Hello I’m back….Haven’t been on for a while due to basic human incompetence but I’m here now that Leo has shown me how to due this computer thing.  I’ve been busy writing new songs and preparing for my next album, all written and ready to go. I’m going to be recording this coming spring. I’ve been playing my primitive blues stuff with the help of the magnificent Pre Sleep Monologue http://presleepmonologue.com/ ,we’ve recorded a few tunes and been playing a few gigs. There will be more to come, watch this space. I ‘ve also been singing with the marvellous Mrs. Brick aka Linda Lamb    http://www.facebook.com/pages/Linda-Lamb , our voices sound so good together, she’ll be singing with me on my next album and you can all hear for yourselves.

I’ll be keeping this updated from now on now that I know how to do it and will keep you posted regarding future gigs, album info and my new partnership with Pledge.
