Drummer Wanted

Due to personal reasons our drummer has left the band and so we are looking for a new drummer. Ability and Committment an absolute must and we would prefer someone local for rehearsals etc. We rehearse twice a week here in Wigan. We have a drum kit for rehearsing with if required. If you like the tunes and can play the drums to a good standard then please get in touch.


No time wasters please.

New demo track uploaded.

The 1st track from our recording sessions at The Lounge is now uploaded for you to listen to. The track is called "Working Mans Blues". Written March this year by Chris D for these times of Austerity and after a third year without a pay rise and being told he has to do more for less. We hope you like the tune and all feedback greatly appreciated.

Latest Update

At last new songs and demos coming very soon. The band was at http://www.facebook.com/TheLoungeWigan last week and managed to record 9 tracks. The 1st bounce is sounding really good and the finished tracks are due back anytime. The band really enjoyed their time at The Lounge. Superb facilities and someone in Gaz who actually knows what they are doing. Definately will go back there from now on and defo recomend to any musicians wanting a top class service.

Will upload new songs as soon as we get them back from the studio.
