local success

victims date 13 January 2004 background group_or_band origin Nottingham, England genre Blues-rock, British blues, rock and roll, hard rock, jazz rock History After several years of local success in the Nottingham Mansfield area as a band known since 1962 as The Jaybirds (its core was formed in late 1960 as Ivan Jay and the Jaycats), and later as Ivan Jay and the Jaymen, Ten Years After was founded by Alvin Lee and Leo Lyons. Ivan Jay sang lead vocals from late 1960 to 1962 and was joined by Ric Lee in August 1965, replacing drummer Dave Quickmire, who had replaced Pete Evans in 1962. In 1966 The Jaybirds moved to London, where Chick Churchill joined the group. That November the quartet signed a manager, Chris Wright, and decided to change its name to Blues Trip, Blues Yard (under which they played a show at the Marquee Club supporting the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band), and finally in November 1966, to Ten Years After, (in honor of Elvis Presley, an idol of Lee's whose momentous year in rock - 1956, helps to better explain the band's name). The group became the first act booked by the soon-to-be Chrysalis Agency. It secured a residency at the Marquee, and received an invitation to play at the Windsor Jazz Festival in 1967. That performance led to a contract with Deram, a subsidiary of Decca (Decca Records) – the first band so signed without a hit (hit record) single (single (music)). In October, its 1967 self-titled debut album (Ten Years After (Ten Years After album)) was released. Band members * Alvin Lee: guitar, vocals (Singing), harp (harmonica); born Graham Barnes, 19 December 1944, Nottingham, Nottinghamshire. * Leo Lyons: bass (bass guitar); born David William Lyons, 30 November 1943, Mansfield, Nottinghamshire.

album title

for ''Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols'' The album title led to a legal case that attracted considerable attention: a Virgin Records store in Nottingham that put the album in its window was threatened with prosecution for displaying "indecent printed matter". The case was thrown out when defending QC (Queen's Counsel) John Mortimer produced an expert witness who established that ''bollocks'' was an Old English (Old English language) term for a small ball, that it appeared in place names without causing local communities erotic disturbance, and that in the nineteenth century it had been used as a nickname for clergymen: "Clergymen are known to talk a good deal of rubbish and so the word later developed the meaning of nonsense." Vermorel, Fred, and Judy Vermorel, ''Sex Pistols'', p. 113. In the context of the Pistols' album title, the term does in fact primarily signify "nonsense". Steve Jones off-handedly came up with the title as the band debated what to call the album. An exasperated Jones said, "Oh, fuck it, never mind the bollocks of it all." Lydon, John, ''Rotten'', p. 202. thumb The Pogues with Shane MacGowan, October 11, 2006 in San Diego (Image:The Pogues 2.jpg) The band was awarded the lifetime achievement award at the annual Meteor Ireland Music Awards in February 2006. In March 2006, the band played their first U.S. dates with Shane in over 15 years. The band played a series of sold-out concerts in Washington D.C., Atlantic City (Atlantic City, New Jersey), Boston, and New York. Later they played a series of highly acclaimed and sold-out gigs during mid-October 2006 in San Francisco, Las Vegas (Las Vegas Valley), and Los Angeles, and toured Glasgow, Manchester, Birmingham, London, Dublin, and Nottingham in mid-December 2006. They began a second U.S. tour in March 2007, once again to coincide (and conclude) with a Roseland Ballroom New York City show on Saint Patrick's Day. 2007 has proved to be the most prolific year of touring since the reunion. A tour of the west coast of America and eleven dates in the UK in December complement the headlining festival appearances made in the summer across Europe (Sweden, Belgium and Spain). They continue to be in huge demand, often selling out very large venues, despite criticism of selling out, and claims that arenas and festivals do not suit the band's sound. right thumb The Pogues on August 1, 2010 in Amsterdam (File:The Pogues in De Melkweg in Amsterdam, August 1 2010.JPG) There are 11 cities which exceed 300,000 inhabitants, these being London, Birmingham, Glasgow, Leeds, Sheffield, Liverpool, Manchester, Edinburgh, Bristol, Cardiff and Coventry. Cities with urban areas in excess of 300,000 inhabitants include Nottingham, Leicester, Brighton, Belfast, Southampton, Portsmouth and Newcastle Upon Tyne, with Bradford just under 300,000.
