The Big Send Off Leeds

Dave Bowie Jr and Sarah Statham, the Northern Powerhouse

We had a very cold but lovely gig Friday 27 Oct at the Big Send Off in Leeds. We were joined by the great Sarah Statham of Esper Scout who sat in on the drums at the last moment, with no rehearsal and did a right grand job.

There was a great line up of talent, huge variety and all top stuff.

Just got to get rid of this cold now.

Mekonville

We had a great time at Mekonville, July 2017, and were joined by an original Hill Bandit, Rico Bell for our set. It was a shame Dave and Richard couldn’t make it.

New recruits

Dave Bowie Jnr.

Richard Ormrod. For a sax player he’s not a bad drummer.


We’re made up to welcome Dave Bowie Junior on bass and Richard Ormrod on drums to our number.

They are both incredibly busy musicians, gigging with more bands than we can even remember so we’re really lucky to have them join us. (Even if they can’t always make the gigs…).

Eiger Studios gig May 2017

We had a great time playing our first gig for 4 years at Eiger studios. We came over all acoustic and Dave Bowie Jr joined us on double bass – and looked epic and played beautifully. Someone told us our version of Aragon Mill raised the hairs on the back of their neck.

The Chemic gig

Well we finally got to play live after 25 years. And, despite being a bit rusty and occasionally giving the impression we were all playing different songs at the same time, it was a great gig. A lovely friendly warm audience. Continue reading
