I loved that Fibes kit you played .and that great snare sound at the intro of Cant eat meat.

Nice full circle thing there. The first band I ever saw live was MMEB, maybe 1976, it was the Roaring Silence Tour. I saw them in Bradford, which is where Chris is doing this interview. Nice.

Spoiler alert: he said "Earth" and they were like, "yeah".

Wait I’m being blinded by the light!

I was a fan of MMEB from Messin to Angel Station.

But didn’t you start in the early sixties?

What about Doo Wah Diddy Diddy? 🤓

Is there a cd?

Great title!

when I came to Waiter first time - listening to ELP I instantly thought what’s that fuzz about Emerson - this guy plays Minimoog like it was a violin- Manfred instantly made a 10 year old boy with 360 deg imagination become razor sharp focused on one particular wave of sound - I heard the sound before played by so many - but no one bended it, twisted the filter and modulated it like he did - he turned what in my ears are a boring Moog sound into a acoustic setting with virtuoso feel to it by his abilities - and I never looked (listened) back. Waiter started what’s for me an entire era of collecting 18 synths and achieve no fame - instead an hell of and understanding of sound and a great hobby I appreciate more than my favourite job - truly waiter shaped my life, not like I am an lunatic or fan - I’m successful and grateful- told that to the man(n) himself once - has nothing to do with him as a person - just his finger tips and my ears are aligned - that’s it - though I wish I met that waiter cause I buy him/her a dinner anytime.

Is there a studio cut of Waiter there's a Yawn in my Ear ? If so could you tell what album, other than Roaring, it appears. Many thanks.

December 12th release in Norway 😎

That's awesome! Congratulations!

#MMEB50: "California" was released as a single on this date in the UK in 1977. It was written by Sue Vickers, who at the time was married to Mike Vickers, a member of the Manfred Mann group from 1963-65. The song appeared on the 1978 'Watch' album and an edited remix was released as the first single off that LP. The single got significant airplay in the UK, reaching the top of Radio 1’s playlist. Despite this, it didn’t chart.

Watch- great Album 🍀

With Chris Thompson on vocals👍

Chris Thompson, the king of vowels: 'Caaaalifornia' 🤠 What a unique voice and great song/arrangement!

The best album in my opinion❤️

Always mystified why this and, later, You Angel You didn't chart in the UK...

Great Song - Top 10 Album in my personal Hitlist!

I live in LA, and it has always been my favorite song of theirs.

This didn't chart? No justice.

Me and Teag loved this , doing the guitar solo jumping around his parents very plush lounge

Pat King Is that you on bass?!? 😉 Greetings from Germany

The Great Chris Hamlet Thompson!!!!!

There were some great songs in the 70's that didn't chart especially in the 76-78 period when punk was dominating.

Great band!

"The Voice" Chris Thompson, greatest singer ever😎👍. Unforgetable concerts...outstandig❤❤❤

Love it! ❤️

my god… what were we young then🤔… and the band too 🤩

Great voice.

Great song.

There was a reason it didn’t make the charts!

So love this lp!!

One of my favorite songs

Favourite Earth Band track

Absolutely Mantastic. I love MMEB especially when Chris is on vocals. First saw them at the City Hall Newcastle on the Roaring Silence tour when I was 16. They were brilliant have loved them ever since .

OMG this song is so wonderful, like the whole album "Watch"

Песня-супер! Впервые услышал в 1980 году и влюбился в MMEB на всю жизнь!
