CRY NO MORE GIGS
Roy comments: "With the Ramrod safely returned from the colonies the Cry No More Farewell World Tour 2010 enters its final phase - two shows this month. Good news for those of you who say we shouldn't call it a World Tour when we only ever play in Twickenham, the first date, in Hampton, is three miles south of Twickenham, the second, in Kingston, is three miles east. The atmosphere at the Royal Oak is boisterous, the Ram Jam Club more refined. I'm sure you'll find this information fascinating if you live in Reykjavik."
SAT 23 OCT - ROYAL OAK
Royal Oak 45 Oak Avenue Hampton Middlesex TW12 3NR FREE ENTRY - showtime 8.30pm-11.00pm with a short intermission. Pub open till 12.00

A SHIRT FOR EVERY SEASON
Recently on my trip to the US I met a fan (who wishes to remain nameless), who has, for a long while now, been producing very limited edition (i.e. 1 copy) Strawbs t-shirts (most showcasing various artists whose work he admires) for each of the US gigs he's attended (just for fun - not on any commercial basis !!!). Many of these have been signed by the band.
I saw the Towne Crier (18 Sep 2010) t-shirt and he was kind enough to give it to me (thank you very very much). At my re quest he's sent me images of his previous designs - I think you'll be impressed by what he's done.
