OK….so those of you with eagle-eyed vision, powerful varifocals and who generally DID go to Specsavers (please note: Limehouse Lizzy are not endorsed in any way – other ocular correction vendors and merchants are available…although not with so nifty a tagline) may well have spotted the bearer of a still-current sicknote, gingerly marauding the stage for certain gigs of the last 3 weeks. Yes, Vain-Wayne of Ellisdom made a tentative return to performance, bravely ignoring the exhortations of naysayers, soothsayers, Leo Sayer and assorted warlocks and sorcerers. This, in a bid to pre-empt and anticipate the thumbs-up, green light and the usual signs indicative of ‘all clear’ that will be hopefully sanctioned by Consultant-in-Chief Gandalf Warner of Bolton District & General Hospice.




His appearances have been well-received, most likely with a good dose of sympathy being levelled towards the old scrote, heaving and wheezing like an old concertina under the weight of his trusty bass ‘The Blade’ and, of course, his erstwhile ego. The news is that he’ll be making a partial comeback doing selected gigs but largely concentrating on Thursdays for the time being. Rest assured that Paul Johnson remains his uber-capable carer, undertaking all the usual gigs that the old goat momentarily can’t.


On a more serious note, by way of further explanation for anyone remotely interested, there are a few minor complications with a couple of Old Bionic’s back muscles (supraspinatus and rhomboid, anyone?) which still aren’t functioning correctly, thus delaying the total healing process and rendering him unable to undertake the usual schedule. Hence, the softly-softly approach.


So, in summary and to reiterate, Wayne will playing Thursdays and some other selected gigs until at least the summer holidays (August). Saint Paul will continue to lend his considerable prowess until further notice.




Our good friend Muttley over at the Iron Road in Evesham wanted to welcome Wayne back with another show (and no doubt some of his legendary ‘dessert shots’), so we’re back on 8th June.

We also have a new gig in Cannock after the sad demise of the Tackeroo, we play the all-new Station venue on 30th June.

The update on Wayne's shoulder procedure is that the consultant overseeing his recuperation still will not commit to an actual date to sign him off. However, a further appointment is scheduled for April, meaning that a return to stage duty in May is "a possibility'. Meanwhile, Paul Johnson continues to wow the crowds with his own inimitable take on the Thin Lizzy canon, for which we remain eternally grateful and beholden!



With the recuperation period being extended way longer than previously anticipated  and Paul having already having had commitments in place, this will unfortunately mean more rescheduling of certain dates, the first being RIGA LIVE MUSIC @ O’NEILLS, Southend-on-sea this coming Good Friday (25th). This gig will now be rescheduled to THURSDAY 5TH MAY at the same venue and please note that ALL TICKETS REMAIN VALID FOR THIS NEW DATE. If you need a refund, these can be obtained from your original point of sale. BUT…we hope you'll keep a hold of your ticket and come along to celebrate a belated Easter Jolly-up with us!


Other dates to be rescheduled will follow within the week.




With our usual Tamworth haunt, The Assembly Rooms, being out of action for refurb, we’re filling in with a gig at the delectably named ROCK’IT BAR on April 7th. Unlike the sprawling acreage of the Ass’y Rooms, this is lining up to be the polar opposite, i.e., one of those banged out, propah rock bars like back in the day, when we were young, muscular and had hair to toss about in wild abandon (and that actually was some of the girls!)….deffo worth checking out, just for the name alone!

And finally, a shout - well, recall -  going out to the Plymouth-massive for our welcome return to the fair city after years away, by way of a showing at THE HUB on April 1st. In the past we’ve enjoyed some phenomenal gigs there, right back to The Brittania (ooh…getting a bit misty-eyed, now!) and who could forget the infamous-but-legendary Cooperage?!? I swear, playing that gig was like winning the lottery (smile if you’re in the know…)…

Right, enough goss - we’ve got acupuncture, reiki, leeches to apply and reconstructive torso surgery for a poorly singer out back.

Tour dates down to the end of July follow are now online HERE, so get ‘em in the diary and spread the word around!
