Hi Guys, I hope you are well and alright.
It’s so fantastic I am opening for Hawkwind on the main stage at HRH Prog 7 on November 7 at 4:30 pm, as The Attack Featuring Davy O’List. Also recent articles in Mojo Magazine and Prog Rock Magazine about The Nice hit of America and the Roxy Music release of me on the BBC recordings really pleased me.
I am finishing off my new album ‘The Future Is Wild’ (featuring Bob Hodges from the original Attack on organ) with acoustic guitar tracks and there are three bonus tracks featuring my sister Suzie and Simon Phillips on drums from 1977.
Please, if you need any more information please get in touch,

Celebrate the Summer of ‘66
Fifty years ago, to the week, England were winning the World Cup and the 6th National Jazz and Blues Festival was held at the Royal Racecourse Windsor. It was Britain’s first proper rock music festival.
The line up in that critical year moved from being blues and jazz acts to bands like The Who and the Small Faces, not to mention the first unveiling of a trio with no name yet, who consisted of Eric, Ginger and Jack…. It was a major innovation.
Now 50 years later we are paying homage to that event with a special concert at the same venue, with many of the artists who graced that stage all those years ago- the original Sunshine Superman and stellar troubadour Donovan, The Manfreds with Paul Jones, Chris Farlowe (who had the number one single that week “Out of Time”) PP Arnold, Davy O’List from The Nice who sadly lost Keith Emerson earlier this year, Cliff Bennett, Geno Washington and many more with the promise of special surprise guests.
There will be a unique celebrity charged tribute to David Bowie following the Macmillan benefit record Life on Mars hitting number one. Beth Rowley will sing the blues as only she knows, and there is music from the Small Faces musical All or Nothing as well as Steve Marriott’s talented daughter Molly.
The day will be full of surprises and special guests. It is a truly unique and historic event that simply cannot be repeated. Please feel free to dress in the garb of the time and join that army of Dedicated Followers of Fashion!
The entire day is also for a good cause benefiting the Macmillan Cancer Appeal.
Davy O’List group are backing P P Arnold for an acoustic set in Wales on 30 April at the Rhosygilwen concert hall then a festival on 2 July in Yorkshire. More details to follow. Love, Davy
Got a great review in Record Collector for our Borderline show in January.
“When a band is cooking, you can tell by the smiles exchanged by the musicians. Davy O’List Band showed just how much they’ve improved since their launch a year ago, with a cosmic performance.”

We’re really pleased to announce a new London show at The Macbeth, almost a year to the day since we launched Second Thoughts there. The band’s come a long way since then and songs from the album are sounding better than they’ve ever done. So we’re all really excited to head back there for round 2!
It’s an early start to the show, with us starting just after 7:30pm. So if you’re travelling into London for the gig, you’ll be able to get the train home.
Our last headline show at The Borderline was brilliant, check out Prog magazine’s review here.
The guys from Prog magazine came along to our Borderline show in January and wrote a great review of the gig and took some brilliant photos. We highly reccomened buying the magazine to see the full review or you can read it on their website.
Here’s a snippet of it to wet the appetite…
It’s an inauspiciously sparse audience that Davy O’List and his band – keyboardist Robbie Knight, guitarist and backing singer Dan Bowles, bassist Jordan Brown and drummer and sometime Wishbone Ash member Dave Wagstaffe – are performing before tonight.
That’s the Davy O’List: guitarist extraordinaire, prime mover when it came to advancing the cause of prog with The Nice, touring buddy of Jimi Hendrix, Syd Barrett’s stand-in with Pink Floyd, occasional Jethro Tull-er, part of the early Roxy Music… So where is everybody? They should be here in their droves, worshipping at the altar of the ‘List’ component of Emerlist Davjack. Especially since he has been decent enough to turn up in a shiny yellow jacket and cool rock-star shades.
