  STEVE 'LOOPY' NEWHOUSE

steve newhouse

loopyworld

Ok, where do I start? At the beginning I guess, so let me introduce myself.

Born Steve Newhouse on May 1st 1957, in the London Borough of Hackney, I had the nickname of Loopy given to me some twenty years later by the same guy who introduced Paul Di'Anno to Steve Harris in a pub in Leytonstone. We'll come to that guy in a while.

The rest, as they say, is history (his story???) or at least it's somebody's story.

But it's not my story; it goes something like this...

Part One - The Fine Art Of Being In The Right Place At The Right Time
Part Two - The Birth Of The Beast
Part Three - When Five Became Eight
Part Four - The Earth Is Getting Greener
Part Five - Recording Demos At Minus 20 Degrees
Part Five A - Recording Demos At Minus 20 Degrees Revisited
Part Six - The Fun Begins
Part Seven - The Music Machine
Part Eight - Enter Smallwood
Part Nine - The Beginning Of The Rest
Part Ten - Recording The First Album
Part Eleven - Touring
Part Twelve - Reading And Beyond
Part Thirteen - Kiss In Europe
Part Thirteen B - Kiss In Europe Part 2
Part Thirteen C - Kiss In Europe Part 3
Part Fourteen - Bye Bye Dennis, Hello Adrian
Part Fifteen a - More Or Less
Part Fifteen b - Japan 1981
Part Fifteen c - That's The End Of Me Then
Part Sixteen a - The Prodigal Son Returns
Part Sixteen b - The Prodigal Son Returns
Part Seventeen - Jersey: That Little Island In The Channel
Part Eighteen - Nassau And The Recording Of Powerslave
Part Nineteen - Fort Lauderdale And Home

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
