A bit of noise for a Saturday night

A couple of days ago my old friend Jimmy St James told me that the Hawkwind tribute band Hoaxwind were playing at a pub in Romford, something that I had missed. And a pretty good band they were - their repertoire focussing on 70s covers with a couple of songs from the 80s. They were most enjoyable. What I didn't realise was that the headline band was the band Gunslinger formed by former long time Hawkwind bassist Alan Davey.

Gunslinger are Alan Davey, his nephew Louis and Cat Bothwell. Very much in the lie of Motorhead but without the slow ballads like Overkill or Bomber!

A most enjoyable night that ended with ringing ears!
