“Limehouse Lizzy Top PRS For Music’s Hardest Working Bands List…”
(please click the link)
HAPPY NEW YEAR! Thanks for your amazing support throughout 2015!!
|…And so, we re-embark upon on our hoary tale from whence we curtailed in our last epistle – largely to bequeath upon you, dear reader, vital information about the impending shoulder operation about to be bestowed upon our fearless frontman and all-round Lynott imposter…er…er…whatever name he’s going under this week and how it may affect your Lizzy-loving nocturnal activities.
Years of (mal)practising weight training via the little-known Billy Bunter Method and also horrific crimes committed under the guise of bass-playing have finally caught up with the miscreant. Enough to render him used up and worn out enough to fall beneath the surgeon’s knife for bone-spur removal and tendon surgery (an enquiry regarding lone brain cell replication via stem call procedures have thus far been ignored, as was the one to have fat removed from his ego to make candles and soap for 500 deprived households…may as well get it all done at once, eh?).
His op will take place on January 8th. There has so far been a conspicuous, telling and frankly, embarrassing lack of well-wishers bidding him a speedy recovery and swift return to work. Funny, that?
ANYHOW….anticipated gigs revelling in his absenteeism are:
8 Brickcroft Club ROCHDALE
9 Corn Exchange STAMFORD
15 Customs House SOUTH SHIELDS
16 Brickyard CARLISLE
22 Drill Hall LINCOLN
23 Platform MORECAMBE
Please note, both the Foxlowe Arts Centre in Leek on 14th Jan, and Iron Road in Evesham on 21st Jan are in the process of being rescheduled. All tickets remain valid, we’ll email the new dates asap and put them up on our website…
And now, the good news! We are pleased and proud to announce the stand-in replacement is none other than PAUL ‘FASKER’ JOHNSON, a vocalist and bass-player whose musical achievements are actually a bit too lengthy to recount here. But some of the more notable are tours, performances and recordings with Saxon, John Parr, Paul Carrack and even a stint with Ozzy Osbourne. Paul is known throughout this end of the industry as a phenomenal talent and we cannot thank him enough for the gracious gesture he is making.
The fact that Ru Paul, Norman Beaton Jnr, Lenny Henry, Linford Christie and Rusty Lee all declined our invitation, citing ‘busy’ as an excuse only serves to compound the magnitude of the size of both job and boots they would have to fill….
|Rich pickings for Blackmail Snaps…
As mentioned previously, an old friend of Limehouse, RICH DAVENPORT, has put together a new hard rock squad called BLACKMAIL SNAPS, who’s new album debuts at the end of January (see the advert below). Rich and Limehouse go back many years to when we were primarily a London based outfit and us and his then-band Through The Storm appeared on many a bill together.
We’ll be teaming up with Rich once again when he and the band make a guest appearance with us at Manchester’s Academy gig in February. Meanwhile, you can sample what Blackmail Snaps have on offer with a FREE mp3 sampler from their website – details below.
Otherwise, you slinky-hipped bunch, please check out the first of our Tour That Never Ends (2016 to..Infinity & Beyond!) dates below!
