Default Ferrocene

Hello All,

As some of you might know I am in a band. Over the last few months things have changed a bit with new members, a 'different' sound and the start of writing originals as well as performing covers. We decided therefore to have a fresh start. As you can see from the title of the thread, the new band name is FERROCENE (A Metal Based Flammable Lubricant) if anyone is interested!!

You can blame our Bass Player if you don't like it as the name was his idea . We have been living with it for a few weeks now and it does grow on you (I hope).

We aren't looking for World Domination, just having a good time.

Our first 3 gigs have been confirmed to test everything out, these are

RAF Waddington 21st July
RAF Coningsby 3rd August
RAF Odiham 10th August

More 'regular' Pub and Club Gigs will hopefully be announced over the next few weeks and we are looking to have a demo finished by September/ October.

Thanks for reading

Yes Slug 'Battle of Britain' is at Coningsby. All but me in the band are Forces, hence why we've got these gigs.

And no Spandex'd we have gigged before but not with this vocalist/ guitarist and I've been drumming in bands for over 25 years . If Fingers doesn't mind me saying we would have supported GHOAD in September but unfortunately our Bass Player is on Honeymoon so we couldn't do it. Hoping to resolve that one soon though (Fingers )

Default Drummer silly faces

Recent photo of me attempting to play the hitty things with sticky things.

Why Oh Why!! does every photo anyone takes of me playing make me look like I've sat on a spike !!!! I might be wrong but I don't think I normally look like that, although I'm sure you lot will say otherwise!!
