We had a fine first rehearsal as a five piece, now that Peter Rophone has joined us on vocals, guitar, flute, whatnot. Ideas for the next (fifth!) album were tried out and a good time was had. We celebrated with an excellent curry! Photos by Kathy Dinsdale.
On Thursday 21/09/23 we played a gig at the Fly Tower, part of the Abbeydale Picture House. Kind of meaningful, since Nick used to go there in the 60s to watch movies! The venue is an extraordinary place, 4 stories high behind the main screen of the cinema. It’s run by CADS who are working […]

Das Rad Guitarist Nick Robinson has released a solo album “Lost Garden” on Discus Music. Created solely with a guitar, the music has attracted favourable comments from Adrian Belew and Steve Hackett and several other notables. The album is a world away from the typical guitarists cliched “riff with melody” albums and explores the […]
As the world seems to be establishing a new equilibrium, we’ve decide we should work towards some live dates (before zimmer frames become essential). Having thought it through, we realised that Martin has insufficient limbs to play sax, keyboard and bass simultaneously so we’ve invited the amazing Jon Short to “come on down” and join […]
After a day trip to Sandal Castle in Wakefield, we’re now wading through several hundred images to select one for the “Laik Tors” album sleeve, not an easy task!
Snooker legend Steve Davis has an excellent radio programme, “The Interesting Alternative Show” well worth checking out. He recently played a track from our second album “Adios Al Futuro“!
