It's a Shame
Featuring five stunning original songs and 3 licensed covers of Jimi Hendrix, Tom Waits and Albert King, this is the bands first and only limited edition release. From the psychedelic 'Freedom' to the acoustic version of 'Sunday Chile' recorded live at Spirit 96.6FM, the band have managed to produce a recording that captures some of the sheer energy, intensity and passion of their live performances. Mark Keen - Guitars/Vocals Picked up the guitar in his mid twenties and hasn't put it down since. He has played many acoustic and electric gigs in the UK and abroad writing original material and playing it whenever and wherever he can. Terry Slade - Drums One of the originators of the Rox Music & Arts Festival, Bognor Regis, Sussex, now in it's 12th year. Has played extensively in Europe and the UK and recorded chart hits in the 60's and 70's with various groups. He is still as energetic as ever and has never lost the passion for music with which he was evidently born. Martin Bury (RIP 2003) - Bass Played extensively in Europe and UK with various bands over the years. Has been part of an extremely successful rhythm section with Terry Slade for many years and they are two of a kind. He has toured with Mike Read, Formula +, and the Primitives to name but a few. The Band were together playing regularly for about a 3 years notched up 100's of gigs including over 20,000 people at Rox 2001, Bognor Regis - the UK's largest FREE music & arts festival. They are essentially a psychedelic blues band playing exceedingly tight original tunes and excellent covers of Hendrix, Cream, Tom Waits, Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker and Bo Diddley to name but a few; The live show has to be seen to be believed. As one music journalist put it, 'Jeezus H jumped-up Christ man, I've got to hand it to them - that was one mind-meltingly awesome performance last night. Completely blew me away.... (It was interesting to observe crowd reaction, too.) That is exactly how an electric guitar should be played.' Gary Crossley, Independent.
