SEND IN THE CLONES…
is the title of a newly-published book. It is “a cultural study of the tribute band” and actually features some of the spoutings and pontifications of our own resident gob-almighty, Wayne. He was interviewed by author Georgina Gregory, who is also a Senior Lecturer in Film & Media studies at UCLAN.
The book looks to be a serious and quite heavyweight in-depth study of a (our!) much-maligned musical phenomenon, which has often been described by some ‘serious’ musicians as ‘bottom of the food chain’. So, will us tributes get our own back with some overdue credibility and kudos thrown our way? Check the book out here and find out…..
Everything from diaries, hand written lyrics, personal photos, band accounts, instruments (yes, THAT bass!), the famous mirrored backdrop (which we modelled our own on), tour jackets and clothing and video interviews with Scott, Gary Moore, Joe Elliot – there is actually so much stuff to see, it’s bewildering! You could easily pass an afternoon in there, and it has to be without doubt the most comprehensive retrospective ever of Ireland’s talented and still-adored son.
A special mention must go to curator PETER EMMET, who is not only the most gracious and welcoming host but also an absolute authority on all things Lynott and without whom this lovingly assembled marvel may not have come into being.

Many apologies to any of you who bought tickets, or were thinking of attending Gridlock Festival this weekend on the 30th June. Unfortunately the organisers saw fit to cancel this event at very short notice, which has left us (and I’m sure many of you) very disappointed.
QUEENS REIGN ENDING…
Just to let you all know, we have managed to squeeze in one final gig at the Queens Club in Stoke on 4th August before the venue is sold. We have had some great gigs down there over the years, so many thanks to the boss Tony for letting us bring the curtain down here for one last time.
Our tour dates down to the end of September follow below, so don’t forget to have a look and put ’em in your diary!
