We would like it known that Alan and his band the ‘Rubettes featuring Alan Williams’ are in no way associated with the band currently appearing under the name the ‘Rubettes’ or the ‘Rubettes featuring Mick, John, Bill and Mark’.

We are reliably informed that this band, who appeared recently at the Vostertfeestern in Bree, Belgium, Butlins and Warner Holiday camps UK and at many other venues previously, in so doing, are in breach of a recent Court Order forbidding any such appearances by anyone under this name.

The ‘Rubettes’ intellectual property rights are solely owned by Alan’s management company Alan Williams Entertainments Limited who will be seeking recompense for all or any damage caused to the reputation and goodwill associated with the ‘Rubettes’ brand as a consequence of these appearances.  

Getting back to normal

Alan’s back on Tour at last. Flying in from Australia on the 15th May he met with Mark, Lawrie, Spencer and Glyn in an Essex rehearsal studio a few days later to re-kindle the music and friendship they had forged being on tour together in 2019/20 before Australia closed its borders to the world. Then with all the hit’s refreshed and some new songs added they flew to France that weekend for their first gig in over two years in Ploemeur, France. ‘So great to be back on stage, such a great feeling’ said Alan, ‘didn’t think it was ever going to happen, but it did and I’m back’. They certainly were and with Italy to come the following Friday. There had been a lot of secrecy surrounding the Italian show which we can now reveal as being a private party arranged for family and friends by someone, who shall remain nameless, as a special gift for his new wife who has been a fan of the Rubettes and in particular of Alan since the 70’s. Nobody knew that Alan and the guys would be there, hence the secrecy, until they actually appeared on the stage. It was the perfect surprise that I’m sure will be talked about by all who was there for many years to come. Alan said ‘it was a magically weird experience when we walked on stage. The looks on their faces was of total disbelief, it was priceless. I’ve given presents and I’ve received them but I’ve never actually been one myself.’ First time for everything I suppose. Back from Italy Alan will be in Belgium for a few days for some relaxation and promotion for the coming shows in July and August before returning to Australia this weekend. Getting back to normal has been a long time coming but it’s definitely back and so is Alan.

Moments In Time

Vinyl Album coming soon

Alan’s first vinyl album since ‘Telephone Ring’ will soon be available as a Limited edition. Entitled ‘Moments In Time” manufacturing is already underway but being reliant on the one most important commodity, vinyl, which has unfortunately become exceedingly scarce due to covid delayed delivery we are unable to say exactly when it will be ready but are hoping for it to arrive before Christmas. Updates on progress will be posted here and on Facebook.

Golden Number One

It may not be the UK or America but a number one on Amazon could almost be claimed as Universal. Having not had any chart success for some time we’ll take anything we can get confirming once again that Rubettes music is still sought, loved and appreciated the World over. Thanks to all Rubettes fans and converts and hang on in there till we are able to once again tread the boards. Alan.

Christmas Video 2020

This Christmas will be distinctly different for all and depending where you are in the world will determine how and where we will be celebrating. Never before have we been faced with choices such as these to be made. Do the right thing within the restrictions imposed by our respective governing bodies or ignore them by throwing caution to the wind and be dammed of the consequences whatever they may be in the name of just having another good time. One thing’s for sure however good intended or selfish you maybe we can’t just pretend that it’s a normal Christmas and business as usual. It will feel very different because it is very different. The usual singing, dancing and clapping of hands will somehow feel inappropriate this year and for this reason we have chosen to offer up as our Christmas present to you ‘Another Christmas’. A beautiful song, written by Pete Richardson, whose lyrics captures the very essence of the moment befitting of the circumstances that surround us, not of happiness and joy but of optimism and hope for the future which, if the truth be known, is what everyone the world over would be happy to receive this Christmas. 


For those who might be interested ‘Another Christmas’ can be found on the Santa and his Christmas Crackers album ‘Let there be Christmas’ SC001. © 2013 AWEL. available on line from Tunecore and other outlets.
