Yes, Red B. (featuring Coralspin bassist Micky W.) playing with former Pallas frontman Alan Reed tonight in Rotherham at The Wesley Centre.
This is one of the best modern prog songs I’ve heard in years. There’s a real Gentle Giant influence there (as well as Dream Theatre). Plus it has muppets, so it can’t get any better.
Our drummer Ed is on tour next week with one of his other bands Bloodguard. When I asked Ed to describe them he said it was difficult, “But maybe melodic death metal… with ‘melodic’ being a relative term!”. They’re playing with Awakening Sun. The tour concludes with a Nottingham gig at The Salutation Inn, which unfortunately I won’t be able to make as I’m going to see our bass player Mick’s other band Red Bazar play at the Classic Rock Society.
More details on Bloodguard’s Facebook page.
A very young fan drew this definitive picture of us recently:
Here’s Morrissey singing some of the lines from his new autobiography.
(Some say it’s not actually Morrissey in this video, but I don’t believe that.)
Forget the other shred videos, this is the funniest:
Our bassist Mick’s other band Red Bazar will be playing at the Classic Rock Society on Sat 30 Nov, 2013, supporting Alan Reed. I will hopefully be there attempting to confuse Mick by shouting out instructions for operating Soviet-era washing machines while he plays.
It would have been our slot except that our drummer Ed will be touring the country at that time drinking the blood of slaughtered virgins, or whatever it is that he does with his other band Bloodguard when they’re on tour. But if all goes well we will be playing the CRS sometime in 2014 instead.
Here are some more photos from our recent Golden Fleece gig. Our thanks to photographer Rob Wolf. (Mick and Ed’s different coloured shirts in different photos are because some of these photos are from the sound check).
