After a real fun gig on 14th November at the Holiday Inn, Guildford, Surrey, we managed to record the gig by placing a mini disc recorder up someones jumper, so the sound quality is not as good, but due to everyone saying can we here it somewhere, here is a live & rough version taken from the gig.

It'll be a family tree of fun from "WAC" to The Electrics to Another Dead Rabbit to a solo period to The BRBB to now, the era of Rockinpaddy.

Now this started off as something that I thought would be fairly easy to do, however on further research it has become a lot more complicated, I'm waiting on a few names before I put up the full tree. It's amazing how many bands have got tied up in this family tree! It's going to be worth the wait.
After a few facebook requests, I've ug deep into my old cassettes to create some rare recordings of the early days, we are talking mid 80's. They were fun times with Angus, Nick, Wiv and myself. So here's 3 of the 5 tracks from an early recording session, which created our first demo "Lets Get PFR'd".
Who Wanted To Grow Old
If you enjoy them let me know and I'll dig out our second demo for a laugh!!
