Thanks to all the musicians that gave their time and their all to make the 2006 Dusting of the Plaque, at the Old Boars Head, the huge success that it was.

All my thanks go out to the members of the audience, many of them musicians themselves, without whom the show could not go on.

POWERHOUSE 2006

Dark Horses - the house band behind Dusting the Plaque and the backbone of the whole day.

String Theory with young Fiddle player Cliff Woodworth.

The Perfect Circle back together after forty years and still as happy as the day they split up.

Victor Brox backed by Dave Lunt and some of the locals.

From here, there and everywhere - the stars of the show - Powerhouse.

   
Fred Fielder who put on a remarkable show despite being with Freddy Garrity the night before when he passed away. Another one of Manchester's legends gone but not forgotten. Crazy Roy Costigan making a nuisance of himself before his performance. Pat Gaffney in the background.
   
John Kikham and Stan Dulson. A Middleton special: Stan Dulson (The Measles), Rod Mayall (Ivan's Meads), and Kelvin 'Spud' Hudson (Powerhouse).
   
Joyce Rawlings and Pauline Clegg, who are writing a book about the Oasis.

Planet earth
 
Looking down I can almost see dad’s farmhouse
Feel his proud eyes looking up at me
The whole world looks so great
No reason to fight or hate
It all seems so right from way up here
 
I just crossed the southern coast of Russia
And over Lebanon the skies are clear
The whole world looks so fine
No Reason to fight or lie
It all seems so right from way up here
 
Come in planet earth are you listening?
The world is just an island in the sky
If we can fly among the stars
We can find the truth with in our hearts
Love’s the only way we can survive
 
I just passed over the coast of Nova Scotia
I can see the ice caps shinning in the sun
The whole world looks so great
No reason to fight or hate
It all looks so right from way up here
 
Come in planet earth are you listening
The world is just a bloody island in the sky
If we can fly among the stars
We can find the truth with in our hearts
Love is the only way we can survive
 
I can see the Islands of the southern seas
Now I see old Aussie way down there
The whole world looks so fine
No Reason to fight or lie
It all looks so fine from way up here
 
Come in planet earth are you listening
The world is just an island in the sky
If we can fly among the stars
We can find the truth with in our hearts
Love’s the only way we can survive
 
If we can fly among the stars
We can find the truth with in our hearts
Love’s the only way we will survive
So come in planet earth are you listening?
 
Ross Turnbull, who performed two of Peter's songs, (strangely a first at a Blue Plaque gig). The first song was Bogart which was Peter's tribute to Humphrey, the second was Planet Earth which after reading the lyrics (right) you will fully understand Peter's beautiful simplistic view of what life should be on the planet. The effect of Ross's performance of this song brought tears to the eyes of many in audience; including Tony Valente; who sat at the front mesmerized.
