Review: Gouldman on song at Sub Rooms concert

MOST READ

A music great visited Stroud last Thursday showcasing songs from his 50 years in music. Graham Gouldman delighted The Sub Rooms audience as he flitted between the decades, showing his mastery of songwriting and performing, writes Jonathan Duckworth.

Whilst Graham may be best known for his work with 10CC, in the 1960s he started out writing songs for bands, including the Yardbirds, the
Hollies and Hermans Hermits. He and his band performed versions of his
songs such as  “Bus Stop” and “No Milk Today” from this era.

He also showed off newer material, with songs from his latest album.
“Modesty Forbids” including “Standing Next to Me” which tells of his
delight in touring with Ringo Starr, and he spoke of his awe, a star being
star struck! The superb sound at the show highlighted the improvements
made to The Sub Rooms, transforming it into a superb music venue for the district.

Of course, Gouldman’s most famous work is with 10CC and there were
several very well-received songs, such as “I’m not in love” and Rubber
Bullets”, with a rousing version of “Dreadlock Holiday” to finish.
