Well the rest of the country may be under several feet of snow but there's none of it up North in sunny St. Annes. So a slightly crest fallen Blind Kings put away their sledges, skis and huskies and trudge their way to the Victoria in St. Annes to prepare for their first live outing of 2009. Once again we're supporting Razor Dog and the usual enthusiastic crowd saw a good night was had by all.
We even had an impromptu "exotic dancer" join us on stage to "shake her stuff" to El Gusano in our sound check (which was nice -ed.).
Sadly though the rest of the week brought the sad news both of the passing of local legend Fes Parker, who died after conplications following surgery for cancer of the oesophagus, and the death of Lux Interior of the Cramps. Rest in peace fellas.

n.b. Not all of the MP3 links will work. This is due to us not only having limited webspace but also limited time to maintain it !. So whilst the links will be put on pages the MP3s will only be available for a short(ish) time (i.e. until the space is need for something newer.
In general the stuff available will be recordings from the most recent two gigs and rehearsals so the moral of the story is get them whilst they're hot ! (or email us and ask nicely if you want access to the older stuff)
