LIVE REVIEW


Onto the headliners, UFO were pure class. For me they always stood apart from the New Wave of British Heavy Metal crowd due to the more melodic nature of their songs and itís due to this that tracks written late 70′s early 80′s still hold their own today.

Stalwart lead singer Phil Moggís vocal range is still potent and his libido doesn’t seem to have diminished, judging by the amount of sexual innuendos in his between song banter.

Skin pounder Andy Parker puts drummers half his age to shame, being expertly complemented by touring bassist Rob De Luca they provided a solid rhythm backbone throughout the gig.

Paul Raymond fleshes out the sound with guitar and keyboard overtures making the whole thing sound massive. But special mention must go to lead guitarist Vinne Moore whose fingers are a blur on his guitar fret board as he adapts Schenkerís guitar parts on the classic songs and makes them his own. He really shines on the new album Seven Deadlyís tracks making them absolutely killer live!

UFO: the original monsters of rock

AS heroes of 1970s heavy metal, rock legends UFO have seen it all. But, drummer Andy Parker tells TIM HUGHES, they are enjoying life on the road more than ever

Hard, heavy and badly-behaved, UFO were the epitome of all that was great about ‘70s rock and roll.

But few people watching their raucous early shows could have dared think that, 44 years later, they would still be at it. And, if original drummer Andy Parker is to be believed, doing it better than ever.

“I live a vampire existence,” he laughs. “I drink off the energy of the crowd - and things are going well.

The ‘70s were fabulous, the ‘80s less so, but this is great. I love the music we are turning out.”

UFO are a British heavy metal classic, influencing everyone from Iron Maiden and Metallica to Pearl Jam. They have released 21 studio albums, six live long players and at least 10 compilations. Their most successful album 1982’s Mechanix, recorded at Sir Richard Branson’s old house, The Manor Studio in Shipton-on-Cherwell, reached number eight in the charts.

But while the glory days may be behind them, Andy, and bandmates Phil Mogg, Paul Raymond and Vinnie Moore, show no sign of running out of steam.

“Older bands have a lot to offer,” he says, talking from his home near Fort Worth, Texas. “The only way to get well known back then was to play, and if you stank, that was it. It’s not like now where you can put yourself on YouTube and everyone and their dog thinks they are a rock star.”

Formed in 1969, and taking their name from the London club where they were spotted, UFO rapidly gained a reputation as rock monsters. Stories of drink, drugs and wild parties abound, and the band have a reputation as one of the craziest of a particularly hedonistic decade.

“The 70s were amazing,” he says. “Rock was god then. There was a gig every night and we played endlessly with no days off.

“The partying was legendary and we weren’t angels.”

Incidents included frontman Mogg’s arrest for public indecency after dropping his trousers at a gig in Lubbock, Texas.

“The Sheriff was there with his daughter, and didn’t take it very well,” Andy flinches. “But we were a lot younger then. We could stay up all night partying but not any more. We are older and wiser now.”

They were also one of the inspirations for the rock comedy film Spinal Tap. “That part where they got lost trying to find the stage was us,” Andy laughs.

The band’s history is nothing if not eventful. Its list of former members runs to 35, and includes guitarist Michael Schenker, of Scorpions fame; Skid Row and Lonestar’s Paul ‘Tonka’ Chapman; AC/DCs Simon Wright, and bassist Pete Way. The band itself broke up twice.

“I’ve left a couple of times,” says Andy, “But my philosophy is ‘if it isn’t fun, what’s the point?’. And there were times when it wasn’t fun.

“I do miss Pete though,” he says about his fast-living former bass player, now exiled from the band. “I love him to death, but he’s such a loose cannon. He wasn’t willing to change, so we told him to take time off and get himself well. After all, one guy can start a whole cycle of destruction.

“I miss his presence on stage, but not the puking and falling down. The fans were getting sick of it too, and they deserved better.

“We haven’t replaced him though – we are just using different bass players. The door is always open.”

Like a true rocker Andy is not keen to reveal his age, and, hearing him drumming, it is fairly irrelevant. Still bursting with energy, UFO classics like Doctor Doctor, Shoot Shoot, Rock Bottom and Too Hot to Handle are given the legendary Parker treatment, as fans will see when he plays the O2 Academy Oxford on February 24.

And Andy can’t wait to get here. “I only do this because I love playing drums,” he says. “I didn’t do it to make money or be famous. We just wanted to get out and play, and we have stuck at it.”

REVIEW

THERE may have been a bitter chill outside, but inside the draughty portals of this historic building on a freezing February night UFO warmed us all up with their classy, loud, hard-but melodic-rock.

Opening proceedings with a storming Lights Out, the marker was set for a great night. Singer Phil Mogg took to the stage in heavy overcoat and scarf, which he jokingly referred to as a first.

Agile and dapper, dressed all in black, straight-leg jeans and waist-coated, Mogg is one of the finest singer-songwriters in the hard rock genre.

He was on form with his entertaining between-song banter, a unique mixture of offbeat observation and anecdote, spiked with sharp wit.

Welshman and noted former UFO guitarist Paul ‘Tonka’ Chapman for instance was humorously and fondly remembered for his love of imbibing.

The set was a good mix of UFO classics, peppered with songs from their fine current album Seven Deadly.

Let it Roll, and Mother Mary fired along, and the mid-paced Cherry and crowd favourite Only You Can Rock Me had the crowd full-voiced and word perfect, as the band gave it their all.

Founder members Mogg and powerful drummer Andy Parker were augmented by keyboard player and rhythm guitarist Paul Raymond. His keys added textures to particular songs as well as excellent backing vocals.

On bass guitar Rob DeLuca had adeptly stepped in for the absent Pete Way.

Along with fellow American Vinnie Moore on lead guitar, the pair are firmly established in a band formerly accustomed to many comings and goings during its 40-plus-years-and-counting lifespan.

Guitarist Moore has really flourished in his role, as he played those well-loved UFO classics with passion and exuberance, as too DeLuca; both contributing to the band’s new material. New songs, up-tempo rockers Fright Night and Wonderland worked well live.

Burn Your House Down, mellower in tone, had a brooding bluesy feel.

The rocker Too Hot To Handle and epic Rock Bottom provided the climax to the set before the band were raucously recalled to encore with long-time favourites Doctor Doctor and the rapid fire Shoot Shoot.

It might have been more than four decades since they formed but UFO proved they still rock as hard in 2013 as they did way back when.

Concert Review


I don't as a rule go to gigs anymore. The one exception to that rule is when UFO are in town or at least in any town nearby. Last night it was Preston. The venue was Studio 53 a new purposely built building near the University.  It's got a 1500 capacity and it looked pretty full to me.

Indulging in a little bit of people watching it looked like a UFO crowd.. Predominantly those how will have been a fan in their hey day but with a healthy smattering of couples and younger fans.

 The band opened with a stunning version of Lights out and didn't let up for the next two hours. Mainly Strangers favourites with three from Seven Deadly plus Hell Driver (from The Visitor, Phil) and Venus.

The songs were interspersed with Phil's stand up routines about subjects as diverse as horse meat in his sausage, washing his T Shirts in sinkwash (whatever that is) and teaching Americans to swear. He seemed a bit subdued in Manchester last year but last night he was bang on form. Possibly having enjoyed one or two (or more) of the little bottles of beer he always complains about.

The band were tight I particularly enjoyed Cherry and a fabulous rendition of Love to Love. And they really seemed to enjoy themselves engaging with the crowd and making it an intimate affair.

If there is one complaint (and its the perennial one) it's the absence of Chapman era songs; Hell Driver and Fight night are great but perhaps one could be dropped to make way for something from TWTWATI or Mechanix.

In the end you can eulogise about UFO. Great musicianship, superb songs and Phil's voice but the truth is watching a UFO gig is like going to a great family party. Everyone is comfortable, a little bit drunk and the host is both funny and charming. The perfect Saturday night out.

UFO got on stage by 9PM. The gig was awesome!! Much better than the ones I’ve seen in California in 2011!! I wasn’t taking notes but I remember they opened the night with Lights Out, from their last album they played Fight Night, Wonderland and Burn Your House Down, from The Visitor they chose Hell Driver (my favorite), among classics like Cherry, Only You Can Rock Me, Love To Love, Too Hot To Handle, also Rock Bottom of course with an incredible guitar solo from Vinnie Moore and on the encore they played Doctor Doctor and Shot Shot. In between the songs Phil humorously talked to the audience while taking sips of beer. He was really in a good mood that night! And I couldn’t believe when they recognized me from the US tour in the middle of the crowd!

UFO, 4Bitten @Institute Library 3/3/13


4Bitten might be from Greece, but you just know that their hearts are in America circa 1987. They are seemingly going all out for the MTV sound that so defined that era. “Games You Play” apes Whitesnake, while “Far From Grace” is a more than decent stab at a Bon Jovi tune.

 Frontwoman Fofi Roussos has a decent voice for this type of thing, though, and they are enjoyable despite offering nothing that could remotely be described as “new.” “Let It all Burn” continues the clichéd song titles, while the last song of their half hour set rather neatly sums them up. Roussos sings about the need to “write a different song,” but does so over a riff that, shall we say, borrows extensively, from Queen’s “Tie Your Mother Down.”

Not that it matters a jot what the support band are up to. Tonight, you see, is all about UFO. Of all the reformed British hard rock bands of that era, Moggy and the boys can perhaps consider themselves the most unlucky. Yes, of course, the glory days are behind them in terms of record sales and yes, they might be best known to a generation of metal fans as the band who’s song is played before Iron Maiden come onstage, but that neglects the fact that out of all of them, UFO are arguably putting out the best records. Certainly last years phenomenal “Seven Deadly” has bothered RTM’s Ipod extensively in the last 13 or so months.

Even tonight’s choice of venue says much for them. Whether by choice or accident, it is in the smaller Library downstairs, but is so packed that surely it could comfortably have took place in the main Institute.

The setlist is largely the same as the one the trailed around the UK about this time last year, although this one does begin with “Lights Out” and if you are going to start with one of your songs, then you had better be confident, this, however, is UFO we are talking about, and by the time “Mother Mary” and “….Deadly.” highlights “Fight Night” and “Wonderland” have been played it is immediately clear we are in the presence of something pretty special.

The band is in fine form, guitar man Vinnie Moore is worthy successor to Michael Schenker, but is singer Phil Mogg that carries the band along. At turns he is both a favourite uncle and looks he would punch you in the face, but still finds time to ask about the Rotunda, tell us he is only touring to get out of the house, argue with the lighting man about the set up and tell us that he has Top Gear recording on his Sky Box.

Back to the songs, “Love To Love” becomes the epic centerpiece and, whilst we can argue about the merits of finishing with a guitar solo, the encore of “Doctor Doctor” (naturally) and “Shoot Shoot” cannot be trifled with.

UFO were truly out of this world tonight, but we should leave the last word to Mogg. “I was determined to have fun tonight,” he tells us. “And luckily you didn’t spoil it too much…”

4/5 Concert Review


...UFO entertained their fans mostly playing old hits like Let It Roll or Love to Love, but also aired tunes from their most recent album Seven Deadly, which mixes heavier riffs with more melodic pieces.

The group saved the best for last with Rock Bottom, the last song before the encore, which featured Doctor Doctor and Shout Shout – both iconic records from their heyday. UFO have most certainly still got it!

 Verdict: •••• ©2013

RECEIVED this on e-mail from a fan:

"Would a -U-F-O- be complete without a screw-up? Had to happen, 10 seconds into opener Lights Out, Moore's guitar went..gone! They battled as Raymond covered things aptly, nearly to the end of the track when Mogg had word with each band member, turned to the audience as said "That was a monumental screw-up - lets do that again". From there on, great... Probably the best ALL around performance I have seen from the Vinnie Moore era. The sound was immense, crystal clear, punch, power and volume where required. Mogg pretty much sang everything spot on,..wow. One thing is for sure, the SEVEN DEADLY and VISITOR material sounds 100% better live, slightly jigged and embellished.

 

8/10 - A thoroughly entertaining night of rock and roll, from support act 4Bitten right down to
UFO themselves it well and truly delivered the night of glory I had hoped for.
