Limehouse Lizzy Top PRS For Music’s Hardest Working Bands List…”

Billboard Magazine, December 2011

(please click the link)

 

OK….so those of you with eagle-eyed vision, powerful varifocals and who generally DID go to Specsavers (please note: Limehouse Lizzy are not endorsed in any way – other ocular correction vendors and merchants are available…although not with so nifty a tagline) may well have spotted the bearer of a still-current sicknote, gingerly marauding the stage for certain gigs of the last 3 weeks. Yes, Vain-Wayne of Ellisdom made a tentative return to performance, bravely ignoring the exhortations of naysayers, soothsayers, Leo Sayer and assorted warlocks and sorcerers. This, in a bid to pre-empt and anticipate the thumbs-up, green light and the usual signs indicative of ‘all clear’ that will be hopefully sanctioned by Consultant-in-Chief Gandalf Warner of Bolton District & General Hospice.

His appearances have been well-received, most likely with a good dose of sympathy being levelled towards the old scrote, heaving and wheezing like an old concertina under the weight of his trusty bass ‘The Blade’ and, of course, his erstwhile ego. The news is that he’ll be making a partial comeback doing selected gigs but largely concentrating on Thursdays for the time being. Rest assured that Paul Johnson remains his uber-capable carer, undertaking all the usual gigs that the old goat momentarily can’t.

 

On a more serious note, by way of further explanation for anyone remotely interested, there are a few minor complications with a couple of Old Bionic’s back muscles (supraspinatus and rhomboid, anyone?) which still aren’t functioning correctly, thus delaying the total healing process and rendering him unable to undertake the usual schedule. Hence, the softly-softly approach.

 

So, in summary and to reiterate, Wayne will playing Thursdays and some other selected gigs until at least the summer holidays (August). Saint Paul will continue to lend his considerable prowess until further notice.

 

NEW GIGS!

 

Our good friend Muttley over at the Iron Road in Evesham wanted to welcome Wayne back with another show (and no doubt some of his legendary ‘dessert shots’), so we’re back on 8th June.

We also have a new gig in Cannock after the sad demise of the Tackeroo, we play the all-new Station venue on 30th June.

Dates follow below down to mid-Sept so check ‘em out, and tell all your friends!

OYEZ, OYEZ – NOW FOR DA NEWS…

SHOULDERING ON…

The update on Wayne’s shoulder procedure is that the consultant overseeing his recuperation still will not commit to an actual date to sign him off. However, a further appointment is scheduled for April, meaning that a return to stage duty in May is “a possibility’. Meanwhile, Paul Johnson continues to wow the crowds with his own inimitable take on the Thin Lizzy canon, for which we remain eternally grateful and beholden!

PromoPic2015

 

RESCHEDULE

With the recuperation period being extended way longer than previously anticipated  and Paul having already having had commitments in place, this will unfortunately mean more rescheduling of certain dates, the first being RIGA LIVE MUSIC @ O’NEILLS, Southend-on-sea this coming Good Friday (25th). This gig will now be rescheduled to THURSDAY 5TH MAY at the same venue and please note that ALL TICKETS REMAIN VALID FOR THIS NEW DATE. If you need a refund, these can be obtained from your original point of sale. BUT…we hope you’ll keep a hold of your ticket and come along to celebrate a belated Easter Jolly-up with us!

Other dates to be rescheduled will follow within the week.

ROCK’IT, MAN…

With our usual Tamworth haunt, The Assembly Rooms, being out of action for refurb, we’re filling in with a gig at the delectably named ROCK’IT BAR on April 7th. Unlike the sprawling acreage of the Ass’y Rooms, this is lining up to be the polar opposite, i.e., one of those banged out, propah rock bars like back in the day, when we were young, muscular and had hair to toss about in wild abandon (and that actually was some of the girls!)….deffo worth checking out, just for the name alone!

And finally, a shout – well, recall –  going out to the Plymouth-massive for our welcome return to the fair city after years away, by way of a showing at THE HUB on April 1st. In the past we’ve enjoyed some phenomenal gigs there, right back to The Brittania (ooh…getting a bit misty-eyed, now!) and who could forget the infamous-but-legendary Cooperage?!? I swear, playing that gig was like winning the lottery (smile if you’re in the know…)…

Right, enough goss – we’ve got acupuncture, reiki, leeches to apply and reconstructive torso surgery for a poorly singer out back.

Tour dates down to the end of July follow below, so get ‘em in the diary and spread the word around!

Limehouse Lizzy Top PRS For Music’s Hardest Working Bands List…”

Billboard Magazine, December 2011

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Thanks for your amazing support throughout 2015!!

SBEempire2
…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:

JANUARY:

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 SaxonJohn ParrPaul 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!

Limehouse Lizzy Top PRS For Music’s Hardest Working Bands List…”

Billboard Magazine, December 2011

(please click the link)

“Twas the gigs before Christmas…”
Just to post what will probably be the final roundup of the years news and happenings.
We’re playing the Academy in Manchester on February 27th which is always a monster of a gig. Further to this, some of you may remember as far back as the ’90’s when we played host to several guest spots for our old mate RICH DAVENPORT and his then-band Through The Storm. Following further stints as a stand-up comedian (!) and radio dj (a role which he still occupies – check out http://www.totalrock.com), he has now emerged with his new hard rock crew, THE BLACKMAIL SNAPS.
Rich and the band will be guesting with us at the Academy, where they will be showcasing tracks from their new album ‘When One Door Close, Smash A Window”. Worship Metal Uk reviewed them thus: “……at times recalling the blue-collar authenticity of AC/DC but with a distinctly British edge… with a little UFO and Thin Lizzy thrown in for good measure…” More news in the New Year.
And, oh yeah – it looks like a couple of January’s early gigs will be going ahead without Wayne! He’s undergoing a shoulder operation in the second week of the New Year that will put him out of action for a week or two. However, we have a truly excellent replacement stepping up to undertake bass and vocal duties – more details to follow in the New Year’s newsletter (bah – don’t you just hate it when people do that?!)
Allow us  take this opportunity to wish every one of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
We cannot thank you all enough for your tremendous support throughout the year, and for keeping the fires burning for the memory of our hero Philip Lynott simply by coming along and rocking out with us at so many shows.
As we play out our final dates of our 2015 tour, please check out the rest of our tour dates below…
‘Til the next time…

Limehouse   Lizzy Top PRS For Music’s Hardest Working Bands List…”

Billboard Magazine, December 2011

Hey You. Yes, YOU!

As autumn deigns to bestow it’s beautiful colours upon us, from the russet hues of falling leaves, to the very same of Julians hair dye, so is the need for an update of all things Limehouse, as we enter our busiest time of year. All of our tour dates down until Christmas follow below, so please think early of  loved ones and bestow the gift that keeps on giving, the feted Limehouse gig ticket…

We had a bangin’ summer, although tinged with a touch of sadness as we played our last show at the Square in Harlow. Unfortunately this staple of the Essex gig circuit is being demolished, but all is not lost as it is to be relocated to a spanking new premises in due course. We’ll keep you posted on developments and hopefully play at the new place when it opens…

One of our first shows back after the summer break was a blistering double-header at Conkers Amphitheatre in Moira, reuniting us with our brothers in fake rockness, Livewire DC. With a turnout of over 700 punters shoehorned in, not only was it a riotous assembly, they literally drank the bars dry! We cannot thank the esteemed promotor, organiser and general all-round top geezer ‘Pete the Shirt’ for not only masterminding this special event and making it it the success that it is, but for also including us in so many of them.

Going bonkers in Conkers!

We have had some great shows since Conkers too – BANGED OUT in Burgess Hill, SOLD OUT in Sudbury, MOBBED in Mickleton, FULLY-LOADED in Leicester, and TOPPED UP in Tamworth!!

On the subject of Tamworth, the Assembly Rooms will be closing for a full refurb in Feb 2016 and will be shut for about 18 months. Watch this space though, we will be returning once the work is done and this venue returns better than ever…

Urgent, URGENT! Also, hot off the press, we have just announced a NEW GIG on Saturday 19th December. We are playing a new venue, the NEW CONTINENTAL in PRESTON. Hopefully this will replace th now defunct 53 Degrees, and a perfect setting for the Limehouse Lancashire Christmas knees-up! Tickets are available on line HERE. Get ’em early this will be packed!!

Keep an eye out for our advert in the Sunday Mirror on the 15th Nov, and don’t forget to shoot us an email back if you have any suggestions for a venue where you’d like to see us play.

‘Til the next time…

Limehouse Lizzy Top PRS For Music’s Hardest Working Bands List…”

Billboard Magazine, December 2011

(please click the link)

Cha’ mon, y’all –

tighty-whities, budgie-smugglers, uplifters, spanx belly trainers at the ready…IT’S SUMMER! And check us out leading the charge with our recent foray to St Tropez for the Harley Davidson Euro Rally.

STTROP1

Another hard day at the office…

It was a kick-ass weekend lineup, with us sharing the bill with none other than Mott the Hoople/Bad Company legend MICK RALPHS. So, aside from largin’ it in the sun on our beach hut veranda sipping mojitos and Colt 45’s (and a celebratory, if cautious, Warninks advocaat for Julian, natch…), we also got to hear some of the finest ‘choons in classic rock history – ‘Feel Like Making Love’ and ‘Can’t Get Enough of Your Love’ amongst others. Mick, Dickie and the band were all top chaps too, great having a drink and a chat with them all after. For one special moment we actually felt like a real band….sigh.

STTRROP2

Limehouse HQ in St Tropez

It truly was a gig to die for, massive thanks to Suzanne and her team for putting together and involving us in such a magnificent event – and good job we flew out early after fog at Nice airport saw us diverted to Marseille (read: Limehouse in ‘actually on time’ shocker!)…

Diss-repair

Whilst our last gig was an epic event of gargantuan gravitas, brobdinagian boisterousness, preponderous proportion, and generally an all round reet good time chuck, it was also tinged and tainted with a slight misty veil of sadness, imbued with a searing sense of loss and longing when we played the Corn Hall in Diss (why, is that the Simon Bates ‘Our Tune’ music we hear in the distance?). A fantastic turnout, but alas the venue is a listed building and must now close for some extensive repair work. The timescale for this is uncertain at the moment, but we are hoping to make a return in 2017, and wish Angela and all the staff there the very best, we know the Corn Hall will be back. Bigger. Better. Stronger. Faster. And totally bionic once we have rebuilt her. Him? It!

Seaside special

Got the chance to catch up with a couple of Blighty’s bestest tribs when we played at the Giants of Rock event in Southend. Openers were our old buddies ‘Who’s Who’ (some of you will have seen us with them last year at Conkers Ampitheatre in Moira last year). Yes bwoy, a powerhouse of a set that got the crowd fully pumped ‘n’ primed for a full dose of Limehouse, then to close proceedings we had ‘Not the Rolling Stones’ camping it up with moo-ooh-ooh-oves like Jagger, and a knockout set of Stones classics from across the years.

Justice for all…

And a special mention for all of you who rocked up and out at our show at Colchester Arts Centre! We had one of our favourite original acts and Honorary Limehouse Brother, TOMMY JUSTICE – he of the old rocker head on handsome young shoulders – as special guest, and it was HEAVING! Both bands were filming their sets, and we hope to have some live footage up very soon.

Live Life…

And finally, just a quick mention of a couple of new venues for us – always a joyous occasion, what with so many independent still feeling the squeeze and some sadly, even going under. September 25th sees our inaugural at THE ALDRIDGE ARENA in Walsall in the Midlands. And the night before on September 24th, we make our debut at THE LOVESHACK, Durham. Lastly (but not leastly) we also have a new venue in Ipswich – make sure you get down to the MUSIC ROOM on October 10th!! So chaps and chapesses, your patronage and support in that kindly way that you do, will be very much appreciated and welcomed.

STOP PRESS – URGENT ENQUIRY:

We’ve just had a cancellation on SATURDAY 26th SEPTEMBER by a promoter who’s just lost his venue in a bizarre gardening accident. Any venue, promoters or agencies reading that feel they can help us fill this date will not only receive our heartfelt gratitude but also full promotional support by way of national press advertising, e-newsletter and social media support (Facebook,Twitter, Instagram etc) and enough posters and flyers to make a paper-mâché arc to sail into the sunset and bog off with the rich pickings at the end of the night….

Fancy it? Contact us at limehouselizzy@yahoo.co.uk or via our Facebook page, whichever suits.

All our tour dates down to the end of October follow below, so pin ‘em on your fridge, tatt ‘em on the inside of your eyelids, screen save ‘em on your phone, scribe ‘em on the bedroom ceiling (but make sure it’s your own!) and…generally anywhere to keep ‘em in mind…

‘Til the next time…

We came. We performed. And in the words of the Funkadelic maestro George Clinton, WE TORE THE ROOF OF DA SUCKA! Yes, what was definitely the biggest, hardest edged and, well, most badass tour we have ever been involved with, the mighty, “Jailbreak 2015” tour with our sparring partners Livewire the AC/DC show, drew to a close last month. Highlights? Well, they were aplenty but we couldn’t choose between the 2 biggest – the ABC Glasgow, and Shepherds Bush Empire, and here’s why…

So, London and Glasgow, if you enjoyed these gigs, but want to witness the full Limehouse set in all its 3D glory, lookout for the following dates:-

A blockbusting return to London, with our only show ‘up the smoke’ this summer/autumn, we play the legendary Garage in Highbury, London on Sat 4th July.

And for the Glasgow massive, pin a note to the fridge that we are boarding the equally legendary Ferry, Anderston Quay, Glasgow on 1st Oct.

So well received was this tour that rumour, speculation, intimation, hints and innuendo already abound in the darkened corridors of power about a possible repeat next year. We’ll deffo keep you posted. But meanwhile, a heartfelt thanks to all of you in the Limehouse posse who turned out and showed support – you did us proud! And also our Special Forces Crew – Matt, Hard-Rock Harvey (Dave), Nayab and Ben who were simply magnificent in our hour of need, as usual!

GORRA GIG, GUV?

Hmm, we’ve had a gig drop-out on Saturday 19th June. As we have done previously (with fantastic success!), we’re asking if there’s any venues or willing promoters out there who’d like to work with us to fill the date? We give full promotional from local to national backup and support and just ask that any venue that we work with undertake local promotion with the posters and flyers we will provide. Hey and not too far north – we’ve got to be in Southend the day after (beggars? choosy? Dunno what you mean…!). We’ve also had the same for Saturday 10th October, a cancellation, so the same applies if you’re up for it?

‘Til the next time…
