    interesting to see his reaction Steve Harley is looking forward to returning to Wickham My wife just raised her eyebrows as if to say Not that again but I must admit it did give me a bit of a warm glow It should come as no surprise that the 1975 Number One hit should still be getting air time across the globe it is still regularly voted in polls of the top 100 songs of all time Steve added It is fair to say it has stood the test of time People ask if I ever get tired of playing it how could I That song has been very good to me It is a different version every night and I love playing it and I love the reaction from the audience The place usually goes ape as soon as we play the opening notes People love it I would never fail to play it That would be disrespectful and churlish I have written more than 130 songs but that one stands out though I do get a bit miffed if people think that is all I have done especially semi professionals who don t do their research I trained as a reporter so I know all about research and I know it does matter so I get a bit fed up with people who don t do it I was always taught to check double check and then check again but it is a very different world these days Steve Harley in Bonn Photo by Karlheinz Beck Despite scoring just 24 in his mock O Level in Maths Steve s first job was as a trainee accountant at the Daily Express But his love of journalism saw him train as a reporter despite leaving school without an English A Level he eventually took it in his mid Thirties It is easy to assume now that Steve would have gone into music journalism but that was never his aim He added I trained as a hack and I would have stayed that way I loved being a news reporter and mixing with journalists but I have no regrets about switching to the music industry I trained with some people who have gone on to become very successful in the industry but I never look back and wonder what might have been I have lived a life full of highlights Everything has been such an adventure and I have travelled the world said Steve Three years ago I took my acoustic show to Norway We went to Tromso in the Arctic Circle where they have six months of daylight and six months of darkness It was dark after the gig so I guess it must have been winter and as we were being driven back to the hotel the driver asked if we wanted to go and see the Northern Lights I said I thought that would be quite pleasant so we drove out somewhere it was pitch dark and then

  • Proclaimers relishing return to Wickham - Wickham Festival
    Feed Tweets by festivalwickham Proclaimers relishing return to Wickham Posted on 21st July 2015 18th July 2015 by Graham Hiley The Proclaimers might be best known for their rousing anthems and catchy tunes but there is a lot more to them than some might imagine Identical twins Craig and Charlie Reid are fiercely proud Scottish nationalists who are prepared to stand up for social equality and justice The Proclaimers Charlie and Craig Reid And they are not afraid to tackle difficult subjects either with their new album Let s Hear It For The Dogs featuring tacks which deal with religion and even the Jimmy Savile scandal Charlie said We try never to write the same song twice That s not to say there are not some similarities occasionally but the new album covers a lot of different subjects We tackle subjects that no one else does For instance What School is all about religion it deals with the weasel way that people will try and find out your religion by asking what school you went to Why can t they just be honest and ask We also sing about the Jimmy Savile scandal in Then Again We don t sing about the abuse itself and we certainly don t make fun or treat it lightly It is more about the incredulity most people felt about it and the way it all started to spill out after his death Craig writes more than I do nowadays He writes the bulk of the songs We are pretty much on the same wavelength so we don t argue too much but sometimes we can be a bit too similar in our views which is why we have a producer to give a different perspective It is good to have someone on the outside who will change things Sometimes the sound will be a bit more fancy than we would have thought We are very close in how we approach songs and life in general I am probably slightly more extrovert but we are not much different We grew up in the same bedroom and even when we moved out we had the same friends so it was kind of natural to be in the same band We are identical twins and I guess some people do sometimes have trouble telling us apart but we have never gone as far as always standing on the same side of the stage like Ant and Dec I find that a bit weird since they are not even brothers Sometimes you can get brothers and it can be destructive like the Gallaghers Although a little bit of rivalry is good it is more a case of the two of us against the outside world Craig and Charlie have a close bond both off and on the stage where they are all about entertainment giving fans a stirring show and touching their souls Their music is uplifting powerful meaningful and at times beautifully moving and it is perfectly
