Billy Mahonie

Howard Monk - drums

Gavin Baker - guitar

Duncan Brown - Bass

Tony Barrett - guitar, bass, keyboards

Beautiful tunes float around when these guys play - then suddenly the place explodes with the kind of energy normally seen from bands such as The Monsoon Bassoon. Live they are something else. Quiet, quiet floating "songs" that will have you mesmerised, and then full on guitar madness - brilliant !! Often one of them will go off on a tangent whilst the others keep the tune together. No singing again, but who needs it with this sort of power. Think Pavo but with edge. I cannot stress the importance of seeing this band live.
News - 12 Aug 03 - I've decided not to continue to update the specific pages with the showcased bands. This is for two reasons... firstly it is extremely time consuming... and secondly all the info you require can be found on the relevant artist websites.
When I started these pages many many years ago, most of the bands either had no website, or they were never updated. Nowdays every band has a website so it seems silly to carry on and duplicate the info they already provide. I will of course continue to update their live dates in the gig guide section.
