Re: The Mentulls
No worries - I used to get just as frustrated when bands seemed to bypass this area or not get up as far as London (KWS - I'm talkin' to you....). Now, as well as crackin' local bands like The Mentulls, we've several lively small venues in a small area, so these clashes are getting more frequent: think they need to get together and sort something between them. I know Duncan is working hard to get Ryan McGarvey up into Scotland and I think Bluesmoose will be keen to get Eric Steckel up there too as a package maybe. Mind, you could give Gerry Jablonski a kick down to these parts.....
I'll be at the Durham Blues Fest on the 23rd June also, so I'll give you a shout nearer the time and maybe we'll meet up and have a good whinge, then enjoy some great bands.
Nice one, I'm looking forward to seeing Mitch Laddie for the first time. I got his first CD recently after hearing him on the Classic Rock CD.
I'm going to see Gerry Jablonski on Friday night, I'll let him know his presence is requested down your way!
