Seen at King Tuts - Chuck Prophet


Chuck Prophet

Saturday 21st June    2003                           £12 .00         Ticket No: GA2  29

Saturday 16th  April   2005                           £12.00         Ticket No:  GA2  21

My ticket tin tells me that I have seen Chuck Prophet twice at King Tuts, thrice if you include Green on Red. I think that I have seen him there more often as he regularly appeared in Glasgow and was one of those artists that you would always go and see.

On one occasion I witnessed him getting an electric shock as the guitar wires touched the mic. If he thought he was going to get any sympathy from a Glasgow audience he was in for a shock (do you see what I did there?) as they were too busy slagging off his shirt.

I've also seen him in Austin as guitarist to Alejandro Escovedo in a couple of blistering concerns at the Continental Club a venue held by many in the same regard as Tuts.

I saw him more recently at Cottiers. When I say recently I've just checked and it was actually September 2018. That still seems recent to me. He was pretty disappointing and was blown away be support act Jesse Malin.

No such problems at the shows listed above when him and his band were firing out great tracks from albums such as Feast of Hearts (1995) and Homemade Blood (1997) and  in the case of 2005 Age of Miracles (2004)  from which these songs below are taken
