10cc's I'm Not in Love keyboard to sell at auction…


 19 August 2019, Corsham, Wiltshire – A keyboard that graced some of the most intelligent and innovative hit records of the 1970s is to be auctioned in Wiltshire next month.


The Fender Rhodes electric piano owned by former-10cc member Eric Stewart was used on many of the band's biggest hits including Dreadlock Holiday, Life is a Minestrone, The Wall Street Shuffle and, most famously, 1975's ground-breaking I'm Not in Love, which topped the UK chart for two weeks.


The original promotional video for I'm Not in Love featured Stewart, who sang lead vocal on the track, playing the Fender Rhodes.


During a hiatus in 10cc's career in the 1980s, the keyboard was used by Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder in studio recording sessions.


Stewart, now aged 74, is selling the Fender Rhodes and also a customised 1950s Gibson Les Paul guitar, which featured on many 10cc tracks and also two of Paul McCartney's solo albums, Pipes of Peace and Tug of War.


Luke Hobbs, auctioneer from Gardiner Houlgate, said: "This keyboard is probably the most significant piece of 10cc memorabilia ever to come onto the market. If you listen to I'm Not in Love, it's the very first thing you hear. It really is an iconic piece of British pop history.


"As well as being integral to 10cc's sound, the keyboard featured prominently in the band's videos and photographs. I'm anticipating a lot of interest from collectors, fans and possibly museums."


The keyboard is expected to sell for £6,000–£10,000.


10cc formed in 1972 comprising four members: Eric Stewart, Graham Gouldman, Kevin Godley and Lol Creme. Between 1972 and 1983, the band released nine albums and 25 singles in the UK, 11 of which reached the top 10, three going to number one. The band was once described as 'the missing link' between The Beatles and Blur.


10cc broke up on 1983, reuniting briefly in 1993 to record a new album. A version of the band featuring Graham Gouldman continues to tour and play live.


I'm Not in Love featured on the soundtrack of hit 2014 film Guardians of the Galaxy.


The three-day auction will take place over Wednesday 11–Friday 13 September at Gardiner Houlgate, 9 Leafield Way, Corsham, Wiltshire, SN13 9SW.


Eric Stewart's Fender Rhodes and Les Paul guitar will be available for public viewing from Monday 9 September from 9am–5.30pm until the day of the sale itself.


For more information contact Luke Hobbs or Jamie South 01225 812912 or 07718 988374  or by email at auctions@gardinerhoulgate.co.uk.


Gardiner Houlgate is the only auction house in Europe to hold dedicated stand-alone sales of guitars and related items, selling over 1,500 guitars a year at quarterly auctions.

A Letter From Kevin Godley…


An update on my forthcoming MUSCLE MEMORY solo album for those of you following its progress, and especially if you’ve pledged for the finished record or other elements of the campaign.


Dear Pledgers and friends,


First and foremost, thank you for supporting my MUSCLE MEMORY project and I’m sorry for the lack of useful updates but all is 100% clear now. PledgeMusic is, unfortunately, no more so like many other artists I’m moving on. That being said it got the record up and running, helped me to reach other musicians interested in collaborating, and indicated that there were enough people intrigued by solo KG music to make it a worthwhile experiment, but the process failed. Such a shame because the Pledge business model was, for a good while, a great disruptive outlet for all kinds of music and musicians. Still, no looking back, only forwards and forwards for me means a non crowd-funded record release via the extraordinary UK independent label The State51 Conspiracy.




MUSCLE MEMORY will now be released in both digital and physical formats (definitive release date TBD) with regular updates posted in the MUSCLE MEMORY UPDATES section of my website: 




I must also apologise for being unable to deliver the items you pledged for. This is simply because not a penny collected by PledgeMusic for this very purpose ever reached me, which affectively neutralised my ability to do so. All my resources will now go into final recording, mastering and making MUSCLE MEMORY the best record it can possibly be. So, once again, thank you so much for your patience and hopefully your continued enthusiasm for the outcome.


The route has changed but the destination is still the same.

Graham’s 10cc dates for 2020…


Graham Gouldman will once again be taking his touring 10cc on the road in the Netherlands. Several dates for April 2020 have just been added to the dates page.



10cc/Godley & Creme Legend Kevin Godley Creates New Videos For 10cc Concerts


Update on what was previously posted


Is this a 10cc reunion? Well, sort of.... Former band member and legendary director Kevin Godley has created 2 new videos for Graham Gouldman's touring version of 10cc. This is not the first time the two founding band members have collaborated. Godley and Gouldman created some fascinating new music back in 2006 under the guise GG/06, in which the track used for one of the videos "Son of Man" was created.


In 2006, for the first time in over three decades original 10cc members Godley and Gouldman reunited to record new music. Best known for such classic 10cc hits as "Rubber Bullets," "I'm Not In Love" and "The Dean & I," as well as Godley and Creme's hit "Cry,"  Godley and Gouldman recorded six new download-only songs which received rave reviews from fans and critics alike worldwide! The music has recently been released on a limited edition CD only available at 10cc shows!


Kevin Godley, who has directed some of the most successful music videos in rock and roll for such artists as Peter Gabriel, Duran Duran, U2, Herbie Hancock, Hozier, Elbow, The Beatles, Paul McCartney and The Police to name just a few, graces all six tracks with his tremendous voice - arguably one of the great vocalists in music today!


Says Kevin, "I made this film of the GG/06 (that's me and Graham Gouldman) track 'Son Of Man' for the current 10cc touring band. It's a musical documentary about how 10cc started so it works as a kind of intro to the show. I ripped lots of stuff, shot everything on my iPhone X off my desktop screen, generated text, became a throwback using the MSQRD app and edited it all on Adobe Premier Pro. Tech head."


Watch the video for "Son Of Man"


Record Collector magazine described "Son Of Man" as "a tongue-in-cheek account of how a trio of studio-bound hermits called Hotlegs became the 70s chart-topping quartet known to all as 10cc. The song that was neither music nor art was Hotlegs' 1970 one-hit oddity, 'Neanderthal Man,' while 'Graham on bass' was none other than Graham Gouldman. And so, the 10cc story has come full circle."


Kevin created a second video for 10cc's mega-hit "I'm Not In Love." Kevin explains, "I directed and edited this film to visually enhance the current 10cc touring band's live performance of 'I'm Not In Love' and it was a 100% labour of love."


Watch the video for "I'm Not In Love"


"I'm Not In Love" was written by band members Eric Stewart and Graham Gouldman and is known for its innovative and distinctive backing track, composed mostly of the band's multitracked vocals. Released in the UK in May 1975 as the second single from the band's third album "The Original Soundtrack," it became the second of the group's three number-one singles in the UK between 1973 and 1978, topping the UK singles chart for two weeks. The song was also the band's breakthrough hit worldwide, reaching number one in Ireland and Canada and number two on the Billboard Hot 100 in the US, as well as reaching the top 10 in Australia, New Zealand and several European countries.


"I'm Not In Love" was originally conceived as a bossa nova song played on guitars, but Kevin Godley and Lol Creme disliked the track and it was abandoned. However, after hearing members of their staff continue to sing the melody around their studio, Stewart persuaded the group to give the song another chance, to which Godley replied that for the song to work it needed to be radically changed, and suggested that the band should try and create a new version using just voices.


Along with the 2 new videos, Kevin Godley created and starred in a previous innovative video for the song "Somewhere In Hollywood" which 10cc have used in concert during the past couple of years.


Watch the video for "Somewhere In Hollywood"


In other news, Kevin Godley recently started recording his highly anticipated new solo album "MUSCLE MEMORY." What makes this album special, along with being his very first solo album, is that it will be comprised of collaborations between Kevin and a cast of musicians he has only met via email or Skype, who have submitted instrumental tracks that he has chosen to turn into songs. Kevin is also in the early stages of pre-production to direct his first feature film, "The Gate," based on Orson Welles' adventures in Ireland circa 1931.

Vic Emerson Obituary…*(with thanks to Guy Mowbray/The Guardian)


Vic Emerson, who has died aged 69 of pancreatic cancer, was a keyboard player with Mandalaband, Sad Café and 10cc. He co-wrote the single Every Day Hurts, which was a huge hit for Sad Café in 1979.


He was born in Prestwich near Manchester, the son of Ben Emerson, a tailor, and his wife, Myra. Vic was always a talented musician; he had his first piano lessons at four and passed his grade six exam at the age of 12, while at Bury grammar school. In the early 1960s he bought a Hammond organ to play at home, and when he left school he became a cinema organist in Stockport.


In the 60s Vic worked the cabaret circuit, playing keyboards, and became a session musician at Camel Studios near Stockport, where he met the drummer Tony Cresswell, guitarist Ashley Mulford and bass player John Stimpson, later to form Sad Café with him. The engineer at the studios, Dave Rohl, was working on an album called Mandalaband and asked Vic to put some keyboards on it. “Not long after, Dave went down to London,” Vic told me. “He came back with a record deal with Chrysalis Records. I was apparently a member of a band [Mandalaband] when I didn’t know there was one.”


By 1976 Mandalaband had broken up. Vic moved into a flat in Manchester with Stimpson, and they were looking to form a new band. “We needed a singer. John told me there was a friend of his playing at Manchester Polytechnic students’ union. There were two acts on. The first act didn’t happen. The next singer sang two lines. That guy had it. The band was Gyro. The singer was Paul Young. We offered Paul a deal.” It was the birth of Sad Café.


According to Vic, the story behind Every Day Hurts is that, “The music was mostly mine. The melody on the verse is Paul Young’s. The sad truth of Every Day Hurts was I wrote it at my house in Blackpool when my dad was dying, although the lyrics are Paul’s.” The song was also co-written by Stimpson. It reached No 3 in the UK charts.


In the early 80s Vic toured with 10cc and played on their albums Ten Out of 10 and Windows in the Jungle. He stayed with Sad Café until 1984.


The following year he went to Paris to do some sessions and a tour, and decided to stay. He lived and worked there for 33 years. After Young died aged 53 in 2000, Vic contributed a handful of tracks for a posthumous Paul Young album, Chronicles, which was released in 2011.

It’ll also be a great pleasure to play alongside such esteemed musicians as Steve, Warren and the others.”

Guess who else has a boxset coming out soon…


This September will see the release of Godley & Creme : Body Of Work 1978-1978 by Caroline International. It can currently be pre-ordered for GBP 23.94


This box features music from Kevin Godley and Lol Creme that spans 10 years. The first CD combines 1977’s L and its follow-up Freeze Frame. The next album, 1981’s Ismism (aka Snack Attack) shares space with 1983’s Bird Of Prey on another ‘two-fer’ disc (although a close look at the track listing confirms that the last song on that album – Out In The Cold – is bumped to the start of CD3!). The History Mix Volume 1 (which features the hit single Cry) and their final album Goodbye Blue Sky fill out the next two CDs and the final disc contains single A-sides, B-sides and an extended version. Click here for track details.




Eric Stewart’s 2CD ANTHOLOGY is released on July 21st on Cherry Red. Universal release the 10cc 4CD boxset BEFORE / DURING / AFTER on July 28th (also as a 2CD set)



Universal release 10cc boxset…


This July, Universal will issue Before During After – The Story of 10cc, a new 10cc four-CD box set curated with input from the band to “detail each and every chapter of their musical story”. The box features the band together and apart and therefore features work from artists like Paul McCartney, the Art of Noise, Wax and Godley and Creme.



CD one is basically a 10cc ‘best of’ while the second disc is dubbed ‘What We Did Next‘ and here’s where it gets interesting. Eric Stewart co-wrote six songs on Paul McCartney‘s 1986 album Press To Play and one of these tracks, Pretty Little Head, is included on disc two. However, it’s the single mix that features here, which was radically remixed by Larry Alexander for the seven-inch single. This version has never been issued on CD, so this is a genuine rarity.


The other two discs are ‘And Friends‘ which features collaborations and production work (if you bought Strawberry Bubblegum a few years ago, you have this disc) , while the final CD ‘Before 10cc – The Early Years‘ which has work from early beat group The Mindbenders which featured Eric Stewart and Graham Gouldman and Hotlegs which was an early incarnation of 10cc.


Before During After – The Story of 10cc is released on 28 July 2017. It can be pre-ordered from HMV or Amazon UK for GBP39.99

However, a two-CD edition called During After which only features the first two discs in the box, can be pre-ordered for just GBP9.99

Eric and a Melbourne radio station, back in 2013…


We received an email from an Australian lady by the name of Virginia Munro. She gave us a link to a podcast which features an interview with Eric. Virginia says “Anyway, Eric gave a lovely interview with a Melbourne radio station in 2013. He comes across as very approachable, likeable, down to earth and he loves Australia!  I also love what he wrote about friendship on Do Not Bend.  I’m with him there - you don’t turn your back on your friends when they need you.  It’s an honour that they trust you enough to open up.” So here’s the link.


Speaking of Eric…


HAPPY BIRTHDAY from all at the fan club website on behalf of all your fans around the globe.

What's music legend KEVIN GODLEY (10cc / Godley & Creme) doing now?


HOG FEVER the Ear Movie, that's what.


RICHARD LA PLANTE: I’m dribbling into a microphone in a tiny LA sound studio, trying to record an audio book of my memoir HOG FEVER and the sound engineer looks as bored as I feel. Then a thought hits me like the crack of thunder from a V-Twin exhaust. Boom! Why don’t I do the Hog Fever screenplay, not the book, and get real actors, Terence Stamp, sound effects, Rock music, the works? I’ll phone my writing buddy, Kevin Godley - the Scorsese of music video and we’ll call it an, an


KEVIN GODLEY: An Ear Movie? Damn right! Once Terence was in, I was, but what the hell is an Ear Movie anyway? Well, it’s a pure audio experience with music plus all the production values of a movie but without any er…pictures! Anyway, once we started writing, a few things became obvious. A) Lose anything that relies on seeing. B) Don’t get lost in sound for sound’s sake. C) Write until your eyes bleed…but hey, who needs eyes, anyway? We’re making an EAR MOVIE!


“HOG FEVER should be outlawed. It's contagious.” - Sunday Times


Midway between the satire of Spinal Tap and the pathos of American Beauty lies the schizophrenic state of mind known as Hog Fever. On the surface this is the story of a man, a motorcycle, and a teetering bank balance. But lurking beneath is the story of a lost soul in search of freedom - or at least one last stab at it. Motivated by the emasculating success of his British screenwriter wife and a love of Easy Rider and The Wild One, Robert Lourdes, a struggling American author on the cusp of forty, finds solace in the Harley-Davidson legend. Hog Fever is Robert's comedy of errors as he embarks on a toot, tattoo-and-testosterone-fueled quest to find himself.


The HOG FEVER CD and download comprises Episodes 1 through 5 plus bonus music soundtrack including 4 original songs by Kevin Godley (10 CC, Godley & Creme, GG/06) ‘The Bad & The Beautiful’ ‘Work Song’ ‘Just Write’ and ‘Confession.’ and a special track by Daniel Ash (Bauhaus, Love and Rockets) ‘Flame On.’


*Features Oscar nominee Terence Stamp and a full supporting cast

*Adapted for the ears by Kevin Godley from Richard La Plante's memoir Hog Fever

*Directed by Kevin Godley

*Produced by Escargot Books

*Sound design by Kevin Godley and Ivan Jackman

*Original songs by Richard La Plante, Mark Ling, Daniel Ash, Billy Goodrum, and Kevin Godley

*Original songs produced by Greg Penny and Kevin Godley

*Incidental music written and produced by Kevin Godley and Ivan Jackman


TERENCE STAMP: is an actor. His first title role, in Peter Ustinov’s Billy Budd, earned him a Golden Globe, in 1962 and an Academy Nomination.  He followed this with Modesty Blaise, Poor Cow and Far From The Madding Crowd, his classic portrayal of General Zod in Superman and Superman II, then the films Wall Street, Legal Eagles, The Hit and his award-winning performance in Priscilla, Queen Of The Desert. The title role in Steven Soderbergh’s The Limey, returned him to leading man status and recently Stamp has worked beside Jim Carrey, Tom Cruise, and Matt Damon. His latest film is Big Eyes, directed by Tim Burton. His first Ear Movie is Hog Fever, directed by Kevin Godley.


RICHARD LA PLANTE: is a musician, songwriter and the bestselling author of eight novels and two memoirs, including HOG FEVER, on which this fictionalized Ear Movie is based.


KEVIN GODLEY: is a musician, writer, artist, inventor, and award-winning music video director. He was a founder member of Art Rock band 10cc and Godley & Creme. His music video credits include the Beatles, U2, Peter Gabriel, Sting, Keane, Eric Clapton, Snow Patrol, Alabama 3, and Lou Reed. He is also the founder of WholeWorldBand, an audio/video music collaboration app.

Storm Thorgerson and Hipgnosis


Just posted by Graham Gouldman on Facebook…


"Hi to all the 10cc and Graham Gouldman fans.

My film has just been released on the LP design work of Storm Thorgerson and Hipgnosis and as you know, Storm did loads of fantastic imagery for 10cc over the decades - probably the longest collaboration other than that with Pink Floyd.

Graham appears in the film as well as Storm talking about many of the designs so please check out and also PLEASE SHARE links as distributing the film independently.

DVDs (NTSC but coded "region free") are available here: www.takenbystormfilm.com and streaming at: takenbystorm.vhx.tv

Cheers and happiest of holidays, Roddy Bogawa"

I’m Not In Love : The Story Of 10cc…


BBC Four, in the UK, will be broadcasting this show on Friday December 4th at 10pm GMT.


In celebration of the 40th anniversary of smash hit I'm Not in Love, the original members of 10cc - Graham Gouldman, Eric Stewart, Kevin Godley and Lol Creme - reunite to tell their story. The documentary shares the secrets to some of their most successful records, from the writing and the recording to the tours and the tensions.


With contributions from an impressive array of music industry legends including 10cc's band manager Harvey Lisberg, lyricist Sir Tim Rice, broadcaster Paul Gambaccini, legendary producer Trevor Horn, Stewart Copeland (the Police), Graham Nash (the Hollies) and Dan Gillespie Sells (the Feeling), not only does this film highlight the diversity of these four brilliant musicians' songwriting talent, but it also delves into the influence they had, as well as the politics beneath their acrimonious split in 1976, at the height of their fame.


Our own Dave Jarvis has been helping out with this documentary, as he recently mentioned in an email to the News Desk… “Graham got the producer Charles Thomas from BskyB to get in touch with me some 18 months ago and I have helped them in as many ways as I could. I helped the promotion company compile a lot of photographs and details but I had no involvement with any of the bands interviews, only the audio and photographic images. I sent them the 1973 Strawberry Studios documentary as well.”

Way to go, Dave!


It should be available on the BBC iPlayer shortly after transmission.

Kevin Godley & Spacecake


Dave got an email the other day… we thought we’d let you read it


My name is Lisa Hafey, I'm the editor of essentiallypop.com. 

I've just done a phone interview with Kevin Godley, as a follow up to a piece we wrote about Spacecake. (click here to read that article) It's an hour long interview, and I'm currently transcribing it but it occurred to me that you guys might like to have the links to it. We're going to upload extracts of the interview to our youtube channel as well if we can, because the published interview isn't going to be everything that was covered in the interview, primarily because it's so jolly long :) Anyway, if you're interested, we'll send you the links when it's published.


Lisa Hafey


So… one day later we were sent the interview, hope you all enjoy it

Kevin Godley Autobiography Published…


Kevin has recently issued his autobiography “Spacecake” unto the world. It’s available through iBooks using this link


10cc/Godley & Creme Legend Kevin Godley Releases New Book SPACECAKE on iBooks!


Ireland - SPACECAKE chronicles the misadventures of a debauched and dangerous masochist as he tantrums his way through the sleazy worlds of Rock & Roll, music video and technology, each squalid escapade dragging him ever deeper into a repugnant maelstrom of sordid excess...well sort of. A wee bit. Actually...not remotely.


It’s all about the work really.


If you don’t recognize the name, Kevin Godley was a founder member of ground breaking UK band 10cc. (Their single, “I'm Not In Love” continues to be one of the best selling records of all time). As one half of Godley & Creme he went on to pioneer the notion of music video as an art form and was responsible for iconic clips by artists such as Herbie Hancock, The Police, Duran Duran, Lou Reed & Frankie Goes to Hollywood etc, continuing to up his game in solo mode with U2, Frank Sinatra, Paul McCartney, The Beatles & Blur amongst others. KG thrives on re-inventing himself and SPACECAKE, his first book, takes you on an interactive tour of his life via pictures, music, film clips and 27 chapters of abstract insight into how everything from the first hits to WholeWorldBand, his music/video collaboration app, got made. It’s dark in some of the corners though...so make sure you bring a torch.


Kevin Michael Godley (born 7 October 1945, Prestwich, Lancashire, England) is a British musician, writer and music video director.


He was born in a family with Jewish ancestry, and went to North Cestrian Grammar School in Altrincham. His first band was Group 17 which had its origins in the Jewish Lads Brigade (The JLB). The members were Henri Shalam, Bernard Suffrin, Sydney Kaye and Jeffrey Baker, whose father may have inspired the “Sergeant Baker” character in the 10cc song, “Rubber Bullets”.


While attending art college in Manchester Godley met Lol Creme and formed several bands, most notably Hotlegs and 10cc. After leaving 10cc the two became known as Godley & Creme, both as musicians and music video / TV commercials directors. They won many MTV awards for their unique films and were jointly nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Music Video, Long Form for: The Police: Synchronicity Concert in 1986.


Godley writes, sings, and plays drums and percussion and in 1990 conceived and directed the TV music special “One World One Voice” that featured a global piece of music focussing on environmental and ecological issues. Godley also became a vegetarian during this period.


Both Godley and Lol Creme briefly “reunited” with their former 10cc bandmates Eric Stewart and Graham Gouldman on the 1992 album, “Meanwhile”. However, Godley claims that their involvement with the project was very limited, as the album was dominated by studio musicians. He performed the lead vocal on “The Stars Didn't Show”, the band's tribute to the late Roy Orbison. It was the only song on the album not sung by Stewart. Following “Meanwhile”, Godley and Creme went their separate ways.


He reunited with another former 10cc member, Graham Gouldman, to record new music in 2006 as GG/06, and together they have recorded six new songs which are available via their website www.gg06.co.uk


Recently, Godley has moved into developing a music platform that combines audio and video to create a global recording studio in the cloud called “WholeWorldBand” (www.wholeworldband.com). The company was nominated for the “SXSW Music Accelerator Award” in 2013 and was one of eight finalists selected from a pool of over 500.

ELO “get by with a little help from their friends”…


At Radio 2’s “Festival in a Day” concert at Hyde Park on September 14, Jeff Lynne performed with former members of ELO (well, only keyboardist Richard Tandy; at least they got him) for the first time in 28 years, performing a number of songs in 75 minutes for an ecstatic crowd of 50,000 people. By all accounts, Chris Evans of Radio 2’s Breakfast Show somehow convinced him to take to the stage and perform with former keyboardist Richard Tandy and the BBC Concert Orchestra. The touring 10cc’s Mike Stevens and Mick Wilson performed on-stage in the line-up.


After singing “All Over the World,” Lynne gave two thumbs up at the crowd saying, “Wow, fantastic. It’s unbelievable this really. I haven’t done anything like this for so long, I can’t believe it.” He then proceeded with ‘Evil Woman’, ‘Ma Ma Ma Belle’, ‘Showdown’, ‘Living Thing’, and ‘Strange Magic.’ After this, he introduced “10538 Overture” with the words “Here’s one you might know. Have a listen.” The audience did not know, but they enjoyed it anyway.


After singing ‘Can’t Get It Out Of My Head’, ‘Sweet Talkin’ Woman’, ‘Turn To Stone’, and ‘Steppin’ Out’, he dedicated “Handle With Care” to his fallen fake brothers in the Traveling Wilburys, George Harrison and Roy Orbison. He then sang ‘Don’t Bring Me Down’,  ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll Is King’, ‘Telephone Line’, and concluded the main set with ‘Mr Blue Sky’, and then, for an encore played their breakthrough version of ‘Roll over Beethoven’. He concluded the concert by saying that the concert was “the best fun we’ve ever had,” and “I’ll do this again.”

"I am delighted to announce that I am going to be inducted into the Songwriters hall of fame. The ceremony will take place in New York on June 12th. I am very proud to be joining such esteemed company.”



From the songhall.org website: "Graham Gouldman is one of England’s most successful songwriters, penning such classic 1960s hits as “For Your Love” and “Heart Full of Soul” for The Yardbirds, “Bus Stop” and “Look Through Any Window” for The Hollies, and “No Milk Today” and “Listen People” for Herman’s Hermits, while also writing hits for Jeff Beck, Cher and the Shadows.

A former member of the Mindbenders, he joined with that band’s Eric Stewart and Kevin Godley and Lol Crème in forming pop group 10cc. For that band he delivered such hits as “The Things We Do For Love.”

Key songs in the Gouldman catalog include: * Bus Stop * For Your Love * I’m Not In Love * No Milk Today * The Things We Do For Love”

(copied from the blog page at grahamgouldman.org)


On behalf of all Graham Gouldman and 10cc fans everywhere, we offer our sincere congratulations to Graham for this monumentous recognition of his songwriting.

Graham’s Heart Full Of Songs Tour Dates…


We’ve just received the list of dates for this year’s Heart Full Of Songs tour.


It’s the enduring popularity of these tracks and Graham’s love of playing songs in their simplest form, acoustically, that led him and fellow 10cc members into performing some of them – just with vocals and acoustic guitars – as the supporting act at 10cc concerts.


It grew to become a stand-alone entity and Heart Full of Songs debuted in its own right in April 2013, playing 17 shows with several sell-outs, including London’s 800-capacity Union Chapel.


Heart Full of Songs performances feature many of the tracks mentioned above, along with Bridge To Your Heart (from Graham’s time in Wax with the late Andrew Gold), other Gouldman compositions and material from his acclaimed latest solo album Love And Work.


With 10cc having toured UK arenas with Status Quo last December and their next solo concert tour not scheduled until the autumn, Graham is taking Heart Full of Songs on tour again in May, this time as a three-piece with Mike Stevens and Iain Hornal, with percussion contributions from Dave Cobby.


A Heart Full of Songs concert is truly a night to remember. Click on the dates link to see where and when they’re playing.

WIENERWORLD got in touch with us today. On March 10th they will be issuing a CD version of the Clever Clogs concert recorded live at London’s Shepherds Bush Empire in March 2007. This 17 track CD is packed with 10cc’s top 10 hits featuring 3 number one's including I'm Not In Love, Rubber Bullets and Dreadlock Holiday. Along with the 10cc material, Graham Gouldman and the band perform hits he wrote for The Yardbirds, The Hollies and Herman's Hermits. This concert features original members Graham Gouldman and Kevin Godley along with top musicians Rick Fenn, Mick Wilson, Mike Stevens and Paul Burgess.


“I have many fond memories of our gig in 2007 at the Shepherds Bush Empire. Not only is it an iconic venue but it also featured an appearance by KEVIN GODLEY. I had asked him to sing, amongst other songs ‘Old Wild Men’, a song he wrote with LOL CRÉME that featured on our ‘Sheet Music’ album. It was a magical moment when KEVIN started to sing, the audience went mad.” – Graham Gouldman

New Zealand Festival review


We received a link today to a review of a festival 10cc appeared at recently in New Zealand.


It starts off with “Three bands from the past convened at Matakana’s Country Park on a blistering hot Sunday afternoon. Other than the fact that they are all “vintage” acts, they had little in common musically with each other. Not that the crowd cared…they just wanted to party.” Click here to read the whole article.



Festival News…


We have received information from another festival organiser


10CC have been added to the Wychwood Festival to be held at Cheltenham Racecourse, May 30th to June 1st. As with the Acoustic Festival at Uttoxeter, Graham and co will be on the Heart Full of Songs tour, Gouldman and his 10CC bandmates will be performing Gouldman-penned hits such as Bus Stop, Look Through Any Window, Heart Full of Soul and No Milk Today, which was made famous by Herman’s Hermits. More information and tickets for the Festival is available at wychwoodfestival.com




So far this month…


Eric Stewart reached the ripe old age of 69 on the 20th, best wishes from your fans everywhere.


Francis Coates wrote to us this week. He was the band's stage lighting designer in the 70s, and made the mirror-ball clad motorised 10CC stage logo used on all their live dates at that time, and re-made last year for their UK tour. Last used by the band for their Manchester gig in 2013.

He is now offering this fully functioning Logo in it's road-box for sale as he no longer has room to store it.

He asked us to pass this information to club members as he would obviously want it to go to someone who is a fan of the group.

He’ll sell it for a minimum of £2,600 to cover his cost of making it. The logo can be seen in operation with the original group on web link:  http://www.guardian.co.uk

He added : I have much 10CC memorabilia, inc tour schedules, crew photos, stage lighting plans, newspaper reports on gigs in the UK and abroad, gig programmes etc etc.


We’ll try and get photo’s of everything as soon as possible.

Email Roy here at the fanclub and we’ll forward all enquiries to Francis on your behalf

Swap Shop on Tour With 10cc


Gina Crosby sent an email to Minestrone the other day…

“Just thought people might like to know that someone has posted on YouTube a clip from 1981 of when Swap Shop did a special of behind the scenes on tour with 10cc. As well as clips of the band on stage it also features Maggie Philbin talking to the Sound and Lighting crew,  and on the Tour Bus. It's very enjoyable and well worth a look.”
