WAYNE SICKNOTE UPDATE:

Further news on the Return Of The (Big)Mac - after a Tuesday consultation with his witchdo…er, consultant, the shock news for our fading Supergob is that he has now been told to rest up until mid-March. Meaning that the all-clear for his proposed return should be late March (please note, the medics are extremely reluctant to commit to actual dates for obvious reasons…i.e, the Brothers will come and git ‘em!).

Meanwhile, the reports on ‘stand-in’ Paul Johnson’s performances are nothing but glowing - it seems he’s being exceedingly well-received by the Lizzy Massive at every show (somebody,  somewhere who uses vast amounts of hair-care products is getting nervous….).

So, apologies (or congratulations!) to those who thought they’d be seeing the Naomi Campbell of the tribute world at the helm but will be party to the particularly pulse-racing prowess of bass-pummelling and lung-puncturing vocals of Sir Paul and the usual Limehouse beauties backing him up on stage.

A final word from old Deathbed Dan: “you know I don’t do Facebook and the like but I want to say a massive ‘Thank You’ to all the well-wishers who have contacted me personally or via social-media, it has been very touching. And thanks also to you all for supporting and receiving Paul so graciously (and totally deservedly) and to Paul himself for stepping up to plate so magnificently with such short notice. ’Til the next time!”

Ok, you’ve got the Oscar - now turn it in, son….

PS: for anyone who bought tickets for the Leek and Evesham shows, the shows have been rescheduled and your tickets remain valid. Please see tour dates here: http://www.limehouselizzy.co.uk/tour_dates.php.

 

‘Til the next time…

 

Wayne, Greg, Tim and Lee

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Thanks for your amazing support throughout 2015!!

 
 

…And so, we re-embark upon on our hoary tale from whence we curtailed in our last epistle - largely to bequeath upon you, dear reader, vital information about the impending shoulder operation about to be bestowed upon our fearless frontman and all-round Lynott imposter…er…er…whatever name he’s going under this week and how it may affect your Lizzy-loving nocturnal activities.

Years of (mal)practising weight training via the little-known Billy Bunter Method and also horrific crimes committed under the guise of bass-playing have finally caught up with the miscreant. Enough to render him used up and worn out enough to fall beneath the surgeon’s knife for bone-spur removal and tendon surgery (an enquiry regarding lone brain cell replication via stem call procedures have thus far been ignored, as was the one to have fat removed from his ego to make candles and soap for 500 deprived households…may as well get it all done at once, eh?).

His op will take place on January 8th. There has so far been a conspicuous, telling and frankly, embarrassing lack of well-wishers bidding him a speedy recovery and swift return to work. Funny, that?

ANYHOW….anticipated gigs revelling in his absenteeism are:

JANUARY:

8 Brickcroft Club ROCHDALE

9 Corn Exchange STAMFORD

15 Customs House SOUTH SHIELDS

16 Brickyard CARLISLE

22 Drill Hall LINCOLN

23 Platform MORECAMBE

Please note, both the Foxlowe Arts Centre in Leek on 14th Jan, and Iron Road inEvesham on 21st Jan are in the process of being rescheduled. All tickets remain valid, we’ll email the new dates asap and put them up on our website…

And now, the good news! We are pleased and proud to announce the stand-in replacement is none other than PAUL ‘FASKER’ JOHNSON, a vocalist and bass-player whose musical achievements are actually a bit too lengthy to recount here. But some of the more notable are tours, performances and recordings with Saxon, John Parr, Paul Carrack and even a stint with Ozzy Osbourne. Paul is known throughout this end of the industry as a phenomenal talent and we cannot thank him enough for the gracious gesture he is making. 

The fact that Ru Paul, Norman Beaton Jnr, Lenny Henry, Linford Christie and Rusty Lee all declined our invitation, citing ‘busy’ as an excuse only serves to compound the magnitude of the size of both job and boots they would have to fill….

 

Rich pickings for Blackmail Snaps…

As mentioned previously, an old friend of Limehouse, RICH DAVENPORT, has put together a new hard rock squad called BLACKMAIL SNAPS, who’s new album debuts at the end of January (see the advert below). Rich and Limehouse go back many years to when we were primarily a London based outfit and us and his then-band Through The Storm appeared on many a bill together.

We’ll be teaming up with Rich once again when he and the band make a guest appearance with us at Manchester’s Academy gig in February. Meanwhile, you can sample what Blackmail Snaps have on offer with a FREE mp3 sampler from their website - details below.

Otherwise, you slinky-hipped bunch, please check out the first of our Tour That Never Ends (2016 to..Infinity & Beyond!) dates below!
