UK Cult Classic Rock Group SAD CAFE Documentary DVD

Monday, March 23, 2015
At home on stage and in the studio, seven-piece Sad Cafe followed 10cc out of Manchester and into the charts.

This hour-long TV showcase from the Rockstage series, filmed by Central Television, Nottingham, in 1980, majors on the hit album 'Facades', and includes the hits 'Strange Little Girl', 'Every Day Hurts' and 'My Oh My'.

Fronted by charismatic singer Paul Young, who went on to find success with Genesis spin-off, Mike + The Mechanics, and who sadly passed away in 2000, Sad Caf' were at their peak in 1980 coming off of the success of their top 5 hit, 'Every Day Hurts' from the top 10 album 'Facades' 

Paul's wife Pat Young, drummer Dave Irving and guitarist Ashley Mulford have supplied their memories of a night that caught Sad Cafe at the height of their performing powers.

They were arguably a band out of time in the new-wave era, but their musicianship and showmanship has stood the test of time.

This set, released in the UK on March 23rd, features a full DVD of the performance and a bonus CD of the entire show. Find Sad Caf' on Facebook here:

The Ladies European Tour is pleased to announce that a superb line-up of musical entertainment will support this year's ISPS HANDA Ladies European Masters, taking place at Buckinghamshire Golf Club in Denham from 3-6 July.

Ticket holders will not only be able to enjoy the world class golf during the championship, but after play on Saturday they will be able to enjoy a live rock concert by The Jones Gang in the tented village.

Singer Paul Young will be a special guest joining The Who's Kenney Jones on drums,Foreigner's Rick Wills on bass, Steve Smith on keyboard as well as singer Danny Bowesand guitarist Luke Morley from Thunder. 

'The main thing is that we have fun and we want everybody else to have fun and listen to a good band. That's what we achieved at Wentworth tremendously well. Even if people aren't watching the golf they can come in and watch the band.'Speaking ahead of their appearance at the ISPS HANDA Ladies European Masters, Rick Wills said: 'We're really looking forward to coming to the Buckinghamshire, especially now that we've done our first golf event, the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth. I think the setting at the Buckinghamshire is actually nicer because although the tented village at Wentworth was fantastic, it wasn't a very nice day, so hopefully the sun will be out and everybody can really have a good time. If it's a nice day people can have some entertainment, hang around, have a few drinks. It's such a lovely setting with the river and it's a superb place. When you drive in, it's like, wow!

The ISPS HANDA Ladies European Masters is the flagship event of the Ladies European Tour (LET) and well as the world-class golf, there will be plenty of entertainment and activities for all the family to enjoy. Every day there will be Q&A sessions in the tented village where spectators can pose questions to sporting celebrities, free golf lessons for kids and adults in the PING Swing Zone and free face painting over the weekend. Thursday is ladies' day when you can make a date with Strictly Come Dancing's Anton du Beke while Friday will be cocktail night.

Tickets for the concert, which will take place from 7.30-9pm on Saturday, 5th July, will be on sale at the gate for '15, but anyone who has spent the day watching the golf will be able to stay on and watch the gig free of charge.
