Hi I walked into a pub in kington Herefordshire,(Mike oldfield country) and met the landlord a Irish fiddle player! You just knew that it was going to be intresting just to stand up in the morning.
He used to supply free beer If I played, which seemed a good idea, but that used to go on untill 5 AM sometimes on a week day!
Sometimes in the early hours something special would evolve out of the chaos, and Pete the fiddle player would come up with,"That was a bit of lunacy lets have a bit more".
Thats how LUNACY THE BAND evolved out of chaos.
Paul the singer, and 12 string man was working behind the bar and had played with Pete the fiddle player for some time. We think his record is playing a 12 string with only 5 strings left at 9.30 am.
I bought a cheap guitar and Paul used to try and show me riffs and cords when we were pissed, and he used to get pissed off because I used to come back next day and play something different because I could not remember.
This lunacy took us beyond the infulence of cause and effect, and gave us a unique perspective of the universe.
The unique high energy upbeat sound evolved out of chaos !
More than a band more like a experience!!
To book the band phone John on 01544230699 or email eurolott@tiscali.co.uk
