Long Time Dead
It all started in late 2005 as an idea that began around a couple of us sitting and wondering what it would be like to play music we actually liked for a change rather than keep on regurgitating all the things we had to do to make money. All those tired old wedding songs, party covers and things which were fun to play the first couple of thousand times, but kind of loose their appeal after a while. We sat there talking about how we were going to inject some interest into our musical lives again, and make losing our hearing a bit more worthwhile than it had been thus far. We all remembered what joy it was to have been in our late teens and writing songs in our first bands convinced we were going to be the next Jagger and Richards. So, we thought we\'d fly in the face of reason and precedence and start writing and recording original material, whilst trying to ignore the commercial aspects of doing so. I think we\'ve succeeded admirably in that respect. Our big plan for the future is to keep making fun music, that we all like, and that some other people might also like, wherever they may be. Influences include The Rolling Stones, ACDC, Hendrix, Sam and Dave, Otis Redding, Ray Charles, Muddy Waters, ZZ Top, Jools Holland, Frank Zappa, Booker T and the MGs, Stevie Winwood, The Grateful Dead, The Kinks, The Sex Pistols, Ian Dury and the Blockheads, Dr Feelgood, And on, and on, and on..........
