Robin Hood is a famous, legendary figure from Nottingham. His existence has not been proven historically, but many attempts have been made. The band Red Bazar from Nottingham’s existence there is no doubt about. At the end of January Red Bazar will release their fourth album, Things As They Appear.
The band was formed in 2007 with Andy Wilson on guitar, Paul Comerie on Drums and Mick Wilson on bass and keyboards. 12 years later the three musicans still are playing in Red Bazar and on the new album.
The trio released their debut album in 2008, Connections which was an instrumental album. It was very well received by the prog world and excellent reviews from around the world. The second album Differential Being was also an instrumental album and was released in 2010.
The use of more keyboards on the next EP After the Ice Storm was too much for Mick Wilson when the band was playing live, so the band was looking for another keyboard player. Then came Gary Marsh in late 2013 and singer Peter Jones (Tiger Moth Tales), to create a new sound to their music.
In 2014 et 2015, the band recorded and wrote the new songs for their last album Tales From The Bookcase released in 2016. This album contains a collection of musical stories which many are inspired by Pete Comerie favorite’s books. The music of the band has the influence of the old symphonic prog rock that displays some heavier rock in the edge.
