Nick Beggs Update and Video

August 26, 2013

Today’s entry into the KajaFax newsfeed focuses on Nick Beggs and in particular, his rather good recent output.

You don’t have to be a fan of Kajagoogoo to know all about Nick….just a fan of good music.  A distinctive and versatile player, Nick really is the consummate professional and a true virtuoso.  Be it the Chapman Stick or the somewhat more familiar bass guitar, Nick is a true great on the British music scene, having crafted and performed some of the best pop and genre redefining progressive rock music of the last thirty years.

What new readers may not know is that his versatility extends way beyond music and into the world of art.  As a teen, Nick studied at Barnfield Art College in Luton, where he studied graphics and fine art as a freelance designer.  That early artistic interest, like his musicianship, has also been nurtured and Nick has, over recent years, had a parallel career in art.

KajaFax loves all things Beggs, and we know our readers do too.

Here’s an update of Nick’s recent solo output which you may want to take a look at 🙂

First of all – the music.

Curious about Nick’s artwork?

  Covers

Take a look at ‘Steven Wilson’s Day Off’ and the follow up, ‘The Guitar of EPIJ’.

These surreal adventures in comic art need to be read to be believed, as our hero negotiates an adventure involving a vortex and some veggie ice cream in a tale culminating in the Goblet of Prog.

Mysterious stuff indeed.

There also contains a special message for all fans of Kajagoogoo….

Comic art at its finest and well worth the cover price.  This is a collectible of the future for sure 😉

To finish and as promised, we have some video.  Not much to say about this except sit back and enjoy!  Premium Beggs, recorded earlier this month, as uploaded by Willow Beggs….. Great stuff!

 
Thank you for reading KajaFax – the number one Kajagoogoo fanbase on the web!

    Nick’s Stick work is simply amazing. I wish that he would go on the road and do a solo stick tour. I wonder if he ever thought of that ?
    My favourite Nick album has to be STICK INSECT. Its a shame that it is so hard to come by an original copy though.
