Anniversary day!

Exactly five years ago today, on the 14th October 2016, the newly reformed band made their first live outing at the Opium Rooms in Dublin. It had been over 35 years since they had gigged together although it certainly didn’t show that night. The audience had travelled from far and wide to witness the reformation and the band didn’t disappoint. Dave, Steve, Ed and Michael treated us to a set packed with classics drawn from the first two albums. Five years down the line, and a third album and numerous more gigs under their belts, the band are still going strong. How apt that they’re playing their hometown of Guildford tonight. See you there!
