Blues News - Easter Update

Got a busy weekend coming up so I thought I'd give a quick update on whats
goining on:

*Bordering On Bedlam*

If you've been following Sandy's blog on the Walker Broad website
( ) you will have
read about our song Bordering On Bedlam, which is to be published in a book
of the same name about boderline personality disorder towards the end of
next year (end of the world permitting). We've now uploaded our first mix
and we think it's sounding rather good. You can listen to it from the
player on the left of the site here: or hear a
live version at the gigs we've got lined up.
