And a Happy New Year to every last glorious, charming and ravishing last one of you!

Sooooo, This is 2015 eh?
Yep, not impressed so far, but you know what?
Maybe that means its simply going to get better and better until it ends up being the totally best year we've ever dreamed of, full of world peace, joy, laughter, exotic holidays,  new friends, free crisps and kittens!
And for those of you who just can't muster up that level of misguided and hoplessly naieve positivity...
Don't worry, be not downhearted for we're here for you!
Like a love filled, life affirming, thermal hug. To warm your cockles, lift your spirits and verify once more the unparralleled benefits of live performance and cheap cheap beer, it's

Come, bring your weary troubled souls and lubricate them in this pool of talent ...
We give you the wee yet mighty
Little Rach

"A wee folkie with a punk spirit " and "Like Joni Mitchell meets Pam Ayres, via Johnny Cash".
She prefers to let others decide for themselves.
 A beautifully pure voice, a true sensibility for live performance, and songs that will make you laugh, cry, and wonder.
So, that's exciting...
Next you shall bathe in the linguistic gymnastics and lyrical charm of the very talented and equally lovely

Ben Mellor
He's wordy, he's musical, he's been know to be beat boxy and he's always brilliant and he needs to update his web page.
And then to wash you down in a lather of soapy sensuous cleansing melody, with a healthy froth of invigorating lunacy with give you the sensational
Adventures of Salvador

Hey you lovely people

Farewell Jonny Zoom...hello Ollie

Sorry we have been a little quiet , but with good reason, we now have a 4th member!

Yes, Jonny Zoom (drum machine/ipad) is in semi-retirement and we now have young Ollie on drums!

So we have been back in the bunker breaking him in so to speak......

This might come as a shock to all the folk who believed our having a drum machine was "our thing".  Although Jonny has been a credible and ultra-tight member of the band since its inception, we have long been seeking a drummer who (a) wants to play in an originals band and (b) can keep up with our sound!  It's a challenge, but Ollie is happy to rise to anything (or so we're lead to believe...)

Also this Saturday Nigel will be spinning some discs at The Globe Inn , Tottington Road , Bury along with Dave in is alternative guise as the solo artiste Loop-aznavour who will also be doing a come along

Doctor Rock (Keith Hand) Memorial Gig

Hi y'all ,

well another Saturday another show.... Today's is a bit special too....

It's the Keith Hand Memorial gig at Radcliffe Civic Hall.  Now Keith, for those who don't know, ran a music shop , Doctor Rock in Bury.  He was a true character and one hell of a guy.  Could be a bit. Marmite at times , but someone I considered to be a good friend.

Keith helped a lot of musicians over the years and imparted pearls of wisdom that only really made sense years later; we all have our Keith stories.

Sadly he he left us 10 years ago, but today we celebrate him and raise a few quid for music charity.. So come and boogie the night away , see all your heroes , marvel at his legacy... We all are in some small way....and have a proper good time..... Doors at 4 til whenever and only £6 that's less than a pound a band and we are on about 7:10...... C'mon it raining what else you going to do....

Tomorrow's Gig - get down there!

Ok you lot get along to this , we are on at 7:10 so plenty of drinking time either side and a raffle too.... Will be great and top line up all round.....

Doctor Rock Memorial Gig- 4th October

Hi people we are very proud to announce that we are appearing at this - check out our Gig List and local papers for details.

Bit short notice , but please show up, (RADCLIFFE CIVIC HALL) it will be a top gig with loads of top turns, and it's for an epic cause .... And most importantly because he was my mate...Nigel
