Pink Floyd's 'Shine on you Crazy Diamond' live acoustic cover by Mouth O...

Live acoustic cover of Pink Floyd's 'Shine on you Crazy Diamond' by Mouth On A Stick uploaded 8th December 2013 from their gig at The George and Dragon the evening before (link below). This is another live acoustic cover of one of my favourite songs by Pink Floyd 'Shine on you Crazy Diamond' performed by Mouth On A Stick (AKA Keith and Howard). Keith and Howard share the vocals - Howard is left and Keith is on the right.

From Mouth On A Stick's Lemon Rock page at

"Singer/bassist (Howard) and singer/guitarist (Keith) - both formerly of 80s rock band Liaison - renew their musical relationship in this energetic and fun acoustic duo. Performing a variety of hits and album tracks from the last 4 decades, the pair mix dual vocals with acoustic and bass guitar. Both talented singers, they share the lead and backing vocal duties during their diverse set of rock and pop covers.

Mouth On A Stick specialise in the eclectic. They are not your average duo - nor do they wish to be. Their set consists of a carefully chosen mix of songs from the 1950s through to the present day.

We think you will be pleasantly surprised by the song choice - from award winning pop singles like Elbow's One Day Like This and The Fear by Lily Allen to pop/rock anthems such as Bruce Springsteen's Born To Run and Won't Get Fooled Again by The Who.

There are also some obscure gems that you will undoubtedly remember but rarely hear these days. Brian Protheroe's Pinball and Dance With Me by Orleans being two such examples.

And just to keep you on your toes, there are a few classic album tracks like Fleetwood Mac's The Chain, from their million-selling Rumours album, or Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here from the album of the same name.

So please don't be upset if you don't hear 'Brown Eyed Girl' or 'Mustang Sally' - we like to leave that to the others.

Occasional guest appearances on percussion, guitar, vocals - and sometimes even saxophone, harmonica or piano accordion (!) by some of their talented friends, bring an additional flavour and unpredictability to many gigs."

They tend to play in the Herts, Bucks, Middx areas - for their full gig line-up please see their Lemon Rock page at
