From the capt again! Sunflower with Marco Nelson on bass...



A good one to start with the good foot. Aint seen this performance in a long time. For the Weller maniacs and anoraks: listen how Marco's different style (than eg Damon or Yolanda) of playing bass changes the groove of the song.

Here's the band with Yolanda and Helen Turner. Hard to choose amongst the hundred different line ups and great musicianship, but this is possibly my fave Weller band up ever.

I want to make public a little known fact about Marco Nelson.

Four of his microphones, used extensively in his famously analogue recording studio, are worth in excess of £20,000 and were funded by my late father, Brian Clark. He purchased them to support the man he considered his best friend in a time of financial need. The agreement was that Marco would either repay the value of the microphones as his financial situation improved, or else they remained the property of our family.

Sadly my father died unexpectedly four years ago - Marco travelled to the burial in the family car, such was his relationship with our family - with the microphones still in Marco's possession and unpaid for.

We have not heard from him for two years despite repeated efforts to contact him regarding the immensely valuable property he has effectively stolen from our family. My dad always told me that they the microphones were to be mine and my brother's inheritance, with the content assurance of a father who had made a safe investment for his children. I can only conclude that his trust, love, and generousity towards Marco were woefully misplaced.

What a piece of work eh?

So very untrue . Hopefully the gentleman and i repeat Gentleman in question will see this and respond. It isnt up to me to say what really happened. Posts like the one above should be vetted, its quite slanderous

Yes Annie. You're right in a way. Will try to get in touch with Mr Nelson to let him know. Don't know why this comment appeared. It sounds like something very private. I'll let you know here. Best.
