At last! Having spent what feels like ages in a rehearsal room we- Andy, Mike, Dave and myself- have got a gig! Hurrah!
It's happening this Friday at Tropic At Ruislip which is a new club put together by George McFall, who was one of the people responsible for gigs at The Rayners all those years ago. We're supporting '70's rockers Stray and are on around 8.30 p.m. for a half an hour or so. Excellent!
Of course every band needs a name, and after much head scratching we've finally come up with one; since we're playing what is described on the venue's website as 'Canveyesque blues rock' (i.e. Dr. Feelgood impressions) we spent ages trying to come up with a name that fitted the music. Sadly most of the good ones have already been used but I for one couldn't believe that no one had thought of THE FLYING SQUAD before- well, if they have then we can't find them on the internet! And talking of the internet the blurb on the venue website describes both myself and The Price as 'legends'- no pressure then... the site also has all the information on where the venue is and how to get there; they've got some good gigs coming up over the next few months so it looks like a venture that's well worth supporting.
If you'd like to come to the show- and let's face it, who doesn't?!?- then send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org saying who you are and how many others are coming with you and you'll all get in cheap! Result!
See you down the front then...
