Struggling to know what to make of 2012 as a Hue and Cry fan.
The Hotwire weekend in Glasgow was superb, with the Q&A being particularly enjoyable but the gig in London was a little disappointing for me, something just didn't feel right that night, can't put my finger on it but It wasn't what I expected. I'm sure it was nothing to do with the band though.
There was the pride, should I be proud??!! I'm just a fan after all?... when the guys performed on Jools Holland Radio 2…Continue
It made me sad to realise that my last visit to see Hue and Cry must have been in the late 80s (when of course I was around 2 years old) but despite their often outspoken views I was a big fan then and always loved Pat’s singing voice so when I saw that they were playing in Edinburgh, I decided to give it a shot. A relatively cheap “PlatinumPass” convinced me to fork out a bit more than expected and the itinerary for the day read as follows:
4.00: VIP Reception, collection of…Continue
i was hoping that if and when pat and greg do a tour again would it be possible to do a gig at the o2 academy in liverpool . i think it would be great i went to the darwen theatre on the 11th august 2012 and thought they were superb and sang alligator man when i shouted out a request .pats voice and gregs musical prowess were faultless and my mates who came along with me were so impressed cant wait to see them a again thanks for agreat night.

Got my begging bowl precariously hanging on the edge of life's table here!
Help required! I missed the 1st round of shows earlier in the year and was delighted for the return leg of the tour.
3 weeks ago my wife and I chose Dunferline on the 19th, nice drive up from Cumbernauld, early arrival, nice meal and drinks, look around town, you get the picture! We recieved our tickets on the Mon and then Whammo! my daughter comes home from school beaming with 2 tickets in her hand for…Continue
To add to what will already be a fantastic run of shows, we are delighted to announce our special guests for the Hot Wire in Scotland tour, October 2012. In Dundee we have Kit Clark, in Aberdeen, Oliver Richards and in Inverness we have Sienna Lights opening the show. In Dunfermline, Hamilton and Edinburgh, Little Fire will be performing before Hue and Cry take to the stage. All acts certainly provide a good reason to get along nice and early.
We are pleased to announce that a brand new Hue and Cry compilation album will be released on Monday 1st October. Entitled “A’s and B’s” it includes 34 tracks spanning over 2 CDs and features 10 UK chart Top 50 singles including 'Labour of Love', 'Violently' and 'Ordinary Angel' along with key album tracks, rare mixes and 12” cuts. “A’s and B’s” will be available to buy from Monday, however if you can't wait until then you can pre-order it now from …Continue
So managed to get on this internet stuff again 1 year after moving to the countryside. Yep thats how much BT and SKY suck!!
Anyway I think I'm right in saying that Remote celebrates it's 25th Anniversary in 2013 and as it's the most successfull (so far!) and probably best loved I thought we should be looking to honour it next year.
Heres some of the rubbish swirling about ma heid about this!! what do you all think?
1. A reworking of the album with the…Continue
Quite often I get a random Hue and Cry lyric popping into my head. In particular it's whenever I go to pay for something online or go to a cash machine.....
"I've got the card, delivers the goods".
It happens quite lot. Anyone else get H&C lyrics in unexpected places?

I've been lurking too long around here without writing a few words by way of telling Pat and Greg, and the Hue and Cry Music Club, how I found my way here and how much I appreciate the music.
I'm an American who spent a year studying in Aberdeen in 1990-1. My proper uni studies fell to pieces there (I picked them up later, you'll be relieved to hear, so am now properly overeducated and underemployed like most folks my age), but my studies in Scottish Appreciation…

My wife reminded me recently that we saw Hue and Cry at the Royal Albert Hall many years ago and I had completely forgotten about it. Did this really happen or is it a false memory?
Also I thought there used to be links to all the really old gigs which you could comment on but I couldn't find them. Has it been taken off?
Saturday's o2 gig in London is still happilly in my ears, Thank you guys for a Superb evening and top hospitality, you never cease to impress, would love to sing with you sometime...x
