Darlington Forum - July 15th....
Well, there may be a brief lull in the weather, but it was a hot night down at Darlington Forum, Laurence Jones and his band of miscreants in town: think it must have been June 2018 last our paths crossed (Durham Blues Festival...)
Anyway, so what's been happening since; well there's a couple of new[er] faces in the band, and I don't mean Jack Alexander Timmis beard... And Laurence himself is also not so much a fresh-faced as fuzz-faced, but the fret-burning remains unchanged despite the lay-off, and even a couple of new numbers (have you pre-ordered the new album?).
There's still Thunder In The Sky and the Hendrix was knocked back a little to Purple Haze; otherwise it sounds a little like Laurence is sheading the "Blues" skin for something a little more 80s hard/melodic rock, Stop Moving The House having received a more Quo-like make over, however, there's still enough there like a romping Before You Accuse Me to remind us why Laurence was Best Young Player multiple times in the UK Blues awards.
When life gives you lemons; don't make lemonade.
Give back the lemons. Why were the lemons free? What's wrong with the lemons?
Do Not trust the lemons...
