    If any one from Stormcock has a Myspace account I have just started a new group for RH fans I have invited all of my "friends" but everyone and anyone will be very welcome there is a forum up and running and feel free to post anything harper related, thanks to everyone who has already shown support..

    The link is: http://groups.myspace.com/index.cfm...=C0651B76-6EA3-426D-812529885F536085199070976

    How do these groups work? Don't think I could cope with anything else at the present. But has anyone started a NH one?

    There was certainly a Roy one previously but it was extremely quiet, nay dormant - nay dead. I haven't looked to see if it's still there.

    Thanks pd I see Nick has joined as well and a few familiar faces from here, I started this group because I searched and searched for RH groups but only one was on there, which didn't seem to be right for a music community..and yes it seemed quite dormant. when I read on Roys profile that he has retired from gigging I felt his work needed to be celebrated more by people that haven't yet discovered his musical Utopia.


    Have had quite a lot of messages asking which album they should have a listen to first, now theres an open ended question if I ever heard one!

    By the way Linn I couldn't find a Nick group maybe you could start one!:biggrin:

    If I had but world enough and time - which I ain't right now! This may be a job for Critch or Marcie.

    Marcie I've got a zappy little nappy

    I'd love to but...

    Time is short on my end as well.. Hopefully one day soon I'll get a chance to devote more to the cause.

    BTW (off topic) - I'll be coming to the UK in March for a month (unfortunately missing Nick's tour as I'll be nowhere near the venues listed) and again in July (also for a month). I'm also planning a permanent move to the UK by hopefully latest Jan/Feb of 2009.

    I really hope that I can finally meet some of the lovely people on this list at one point or another.

    PS - also joined Roy's group. Thanks Shaun for setting it up!

    Thanks Marcie, I'm also looking forward to meeting some people at Nicks gig next Sunday - putting faces to names...there is no picture of Critch though so will have to rely on him recognising me, I may even buy him a drink :cheers2:

    It paid off plugging Stormcock and the podcast Paul you had a reply to your post from Robert a die hard Zappaphile saying he will check it out, I've also had encouraging messages to the same effect..

    Good stuff.

    Everything's just everything because everything - just is!

    RH Group!

    Just to say thanks for the support for the RH myspace group, it's now up to 425 not bad in 3 months, we have a heavyweight line up of support too - Nick Harper, Matt Churchill, The Levellers, The Groundhogs even the Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers, :biggrin: Zappa, Floyd, and Led Zep fans (Oh yeah Linn and The Twang!)
    I've had lots of messages from old Roy fans who have renewed their interest too, so all in all a real mixed bag but all enjoying the common denominator...

    Regards Shaun..
