h shows, January (message from steve)

2nd Nov 2001
"Wey hey! Hooray etc..!

Following the success of the Spirit and Body evenings in London this August, and the amazing German Convention in Bonn, I have been invited to play further shows in Amsterdam and Paris with the ever-increasing line-up which has become the h band.
Everyone from the August band is up for another "dose of the h" and I'm proud to announce the collection of geniuses, once again barmy enough to set sail under my command.
I have arranged the gigs so that they fall in that drab week after New Year is over, but you haven't gone back to work yet. So cheer yourselves up with the dark, spiritual, wonder-art-chill-out-megagroove-massive, only to be found IN THE WORLD on the dates listed below.
Amsterdam's "Paradiso" and Paris's "Café de la Danse" are among my favourite clubs to be found in this solar system, and frankly these shows are unmissable.
A London show is to be announced within days.. and will probably be Thursdsay January 3rd.
If you love somebody, don't set them free you fool - buy them a ticket for Christmas!
'til then, my friends...

Steve Hogarth at the Paradiso, Amsterdam

2nd Nov 2001
Friday 4, 2002 Steve Hogarth will perform on the stage of the only Dutch rocktemple, the Paradiso with his H-band to turn Amsterdam upside down.

After the release of Hogarth's solo-album Ice Cream Genius in 1997 the band has performed (with different line-ups) many times in Europe with great success. The H-band, who has quite a live reputation by now, has acquired a growing number of concertgoers over the years.

The "crew of geniusses" as Hogarth calls them (in total about 8 talented musicians), are Richard Barbieri (Porcupine Tree, Japan), Aziz Ibrahim (Stone Roses, Ian Brown), Dave Gregory (XTC) and Andy Gangadeen (Massive Attack). Other musicians are yet to be confirmed, but will surely be added to the band soon.

Ticket sales start November 10 (NLG 45,- , excl. Paradiso membership) and are on sale at major postoffices and GWK in Holland, Ticket Line (phone: 0900 3001250 / and the Paradiso (phone: +31 (0) 20 626 45 21).

Oxford Calling Europe! (message from h)

12th July 2001
"On FRIDAY 10th AUGUST the H BAND will play at the WEB GERMANY CONVENTION at the Breukenforum, Bonn. It's a bigger and spookier band than ever before.. I can confirm that Stephanie Sobey-Jones will play Cello and Dalbir Singh will get up and play Tabla in addition to my "regulars" Dave Gregory, Aziz Ibrahim, Richard Barbieri, Jingles and Andy Gangadeen. Believe me, it's a phenomenal bunch of musicians who you could normally never dream of seeing on one stage and we're really looking forward to sharing the "spirit and body" material with you, which we shall be performing for the first time ever in London on August 8th and 9th.

So far, IAN MOSLEY and PETE TREWAVAS have confirmed that they will attend the convention and we'll meet the fans before, during and after the show. I think the chances are that Ian and Pete might play a little music during the evening also..

Tickets are on sale now (, and available to non-members as well!

see you soon..

London h shows to be recorded for a live double album!

27th June 2001
The h band have lined up two shows at Dingwalls in Camden Town. The 8th and 9th of August will be the '2nd annual evenings of Genius'. h has decided to create two completely different shows. Aug 8th will be called "SPIRIT" and Aug 9th will be called "BODY". "The SPIRIT" evening will concentrate on the more spiritual aspects of my music and will also feature additional songs from the other musicians. Dave has suggested one or two interesting XTC songs, Aziz will naturally contribute something, and perhaps something from Richard also. In addition, there'll be a handful of my favourite cover songs. I'm pleased to announce the addition of Stepahnie Sobey-Jones on cello and Dalbir Singh on tabla. We may even write something new to include in the shows.

"The BODY evening will be more of a stomp, concentrating on the rockn'roll aspects of my music plus songs from within the band as well as the odd cover song. This set will probably resemble more closely the h shows from the past, although there'll obviously be music in there which we haven't performed before."

Both shows will be recorded for a double album release!

Line up:

Andy Gangadeen - Drums
Dalbir Singh - Tabla
Jingles - Bass
Richard Barbieri - Synthesizers
Stephanie Sobey-Jones - Cello
Dave Gregory - Guitar
Aziz Ibrahim - Guitar
h - Vocals etc.

Tickets are available from

Note from H: Dutch Gig

10th May 2001
"Calling the Low Countries, The High Countries, and the In-betweeny-just chillin' Countries,

After our 2 night romp at Dingwalls in London I have been made an OFFER I CAN'T REFUSE by our old chums, The Tivoli in Utrecht DEFINITELY FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY and DEFINITELY the last h show in 2000 on the 31st OCTOBER.


Mike Wilson is going to interrupt his hectic "Texas" schedule, while Aziz Ibrahim will fly in from Denmark.

I am proud to announce that on bass, for this night only, PETE TREWAVAS will join the h band.
Spooky mind-expanding lightshow will accompany the event.

I have been a little slow to make this announcement and I know the first 500 tickets have already gone, but there's plenty left so maybe we can have another extraordinary Tuesday night together.
Dressing up as witches is preferable but optional.

BE THERE or be filled with bitter regret.

Best wishes and broomsticks to all


Richard Barbieri - Synthesizers
Dave Gregory - Guitar
Aziz Ibrahim - Guitar
Pete Trewavas - Bass
Mike Wilson (Texas) - Drums

Extra H show on August 9th in Camden, London!

25th July 2001
Owing to a terrific demand for tickets for the "Evening of Genius" at Dingwalls on 8th August, h has decided to play an extra night on August 9th also.

Message from h:

Hello me hearties!?!?!**....
After our little outing to Geneva in May my band wanted to get together for another blast, so it was with great pleasure that I announced the only h show in Europe for the foreseeable future.
Owing to astounding demand, I've decided to add a SECOND SHOW

I have immodestly-but-accurately (if you don't count ME) described each of these events as AN EVENING OF GENIUS
They will take place on August 8th and 9th at Dingwalls (one of my favourite clubs on earth) in Camden Lock, London.
A summer's evening in the groovyest part of London by the waterside is, in my opinion, well worth bunking off work for, and I intend to do so!
It's a KILLER band choc-full of superstar genius types - if you're unfamiliar with the names, Dave G played guitar with XTC, Aziz played guitar with Stone Roses and Ian Brown, Richard played synthesisers with Japan and Porcupine Tree, Mike currently drums with Texas, and Jingles is one of London's premier session bass-players!
It occurs to me that our names spell DR h JAM (see below)
D>ave Gregory
R>ichard Barbieri
A>ziz Ibrahim
M>ike Wilson

I can tell you that the remastered How We Live album, "Dry Land" will be available on sale at the venue, and that an appearance by Colin Woore will mean a brief reformation of How We Live, performing live for the first time in ten years! There's also the chance to rub shoulders with one or two of Los Marillos who've been tapping me for freebies!
Anyway, if you don't come you're gonna miss out on a couple of rare evenings .. and I'll never forgive you.....:)
