Music From Mick Jade

Deborah from Wallstone Publishing has very kindly given permission to make these Mick Jade songs available for our listening pleasure.


“Memories” written by Mick Jade and performed by Mick and his band “The Jade Brothers Band” late 1970’s one of the very few bands performing only original music at the time.

This album was recorded at RPM but was never released. When the band fired their manager, RPM held back the album’s release. Such a shame as it was a really good album.

The other members of the band were: Gordon MacKay on keyboards (brother of Duncan MacKay), Sean Fourie also on keyboards (son of Johnny Fourie and Mick’s brother in law), Mark Wallis on drums (brother of Mick), Trevor Cranfield on Bass.

The very tasteful sax on this recording was played by Dan Hill.

Playlist Creator & Web Marketer. The son of a church organist father and pianist mother, South African born Brian Currin grew up surrounded by music. In his pre-teen years he realised that he had no real talent for playing music and he couldn't sing, so he immersed himself in the world of music by listening, exploring and researching. Which he still does today. He served in the military for five years, then spent many years in corporate sales and marketing until his involvement in the re-discovery of Rodriguez, opened up a whole new world for him. He was the Content Editor for Rhythm Online, South Africa's first online music store, from 2006 to 2012. He ran Mabu Vinyl, the iconic music store seen in the Oscar-winning "Searching For Sugar Man" film from 2013 to 2019. His voice could be heard on the streaming radio station All Jazz Radio where he hosted the Vagabond Show from 2012 to 2019. He is very involved in promoting South African music, and is the co-owner of a number of music-related websites including which he founded in 1999.

One thought on “Music From Mick Jade

  1. Thanks for the time warp, Give Me More is a long forgotten song that popped back into focus as I listened … “5 O’clock Show” days?
