Hi Folks,
Its been a long time since my last blog so sorry about that!.
Anyway the July gigs were awsome and it was great to see lots of people coming to our shows and supporting the band. The Nottigham radio session, Burton on Trent with Mr Jon Amor and his Blues Group, Clowne, Harrogate were all great. Maryport Blues Festival was also brilliant and the organisaton and the stage crew were great plus we were well looked after backstage!.
 
After Maryport we started recording our newest album at The Grand in Clitheroe which is a brilliant studio in the heart of the Ribble Valley.  People who have recorded at the grand include: Wishbone Ash, The Animals, The Blockheads, Boomtown Rats, The Hamsters, The Jam and more. It was a great week which we all enjoyed. I will update you of news on the album in due course.

30th September - The Camerons Club, Hartlepool (with Dr. Feelgood)
14th October - The Robin 2, Wolverhampton (with Wishbone Ash)
