Today we’ve got good news and bad news. I’ll start with the bad. A few weeks ago, our drummer, Chris Parry, gave us notice that he wanted to quit the band. Ever the professional, he said that he would honour gigs and continue to work with us until we found his replacement. The reason I’m announcing this now is because of the good news. We’ve found a new drummer and he’ll be debuting with us as soon as he’s got to grips with the material.
What this all means is that Chris will still be playing with us at The Hammer & The Anvil on 24th August. It’s likely to be his last gig with us, so you should come and see him off. We’ll have copies of Playing Rough on sale, so this may be your last chance to get a copy signed by the line-up that recorded it.
We’ll tell you a bit more about the new guy in the run-up to his first show.
