We were honoured to be asked to play a set celebrating Record Store Day 2023 at the legendary JG Windows music store in Newcastle's Central Arcade. This marks the first time Lester has appeared to front the band in the flesh and featured special guest guitarist Ian Watson, as Steve was enduring a stretch in the naughty corner for an unforgivable arithmatic error when making Lester's coffee with 2 sugars, as opposed to his customary 20. The results... Remarkable...
Lester prepares for war at Downcast Studio, Gateshead's Battle of the Bands. Aiming to be last man standing in a three way brawl with Mother Firefly and The Last Bastion, we're calling on every able-bodied man, woman and child to join the ranks and come along to witness the carnage.
