On 15th July, some of the members of Cymande were interviewed by Robert Elms for BBC London 94.9.  The guys performed an acoustic version of “No Weeping” from our new album “Crazy Game”.  It was great to hear it being played over the radio.  Live Cymande music for the first time in over 40 years!!

We have two more dates added:

Thursday 25th September at Koko, Camden and Friday 10th October at Band on the Wall, Manchester as part of the Craig Charles Show.

Will keep you posted.

Another video from the past – Roger Chapman “Boogie Man”

by Sam Kelly

Thank you Klems Klubber, a friend of mine from Leverkusen, Germany.  He found this video of Roger Chapman and the famous “Boogie Man” 1984 at Rhein-Main.  Back in the days when I had hair 😀 I remember the airline lost my baggage so the Promoter had to get a local sports shop to open up – I’m kitted out with a pair of tracksuit trousers and a bright yellow t-shirt!!
