A NEW LANC …

December 19th, 2008

Our bassman Terry has for some time shared his musical time with several projects. How he does it is a mystery - but the man has some energy! Terry’s involvement in the recent gig played at The Hidden Cellar was effected by his services being in demand elswhere, and Garth’s son Dylan Hichens graciously filled in … to say the least he fitted in perfectly. Terry has taken the opportunity to revise his invovement in the band and to play a back up role to Dylan who, we are thrilled to announce, has taken over the primary bassman reins. Given Dylan’s pedegree and history this is a very special and significant addition to the band. He joins Brett as the second next gebneration to join the original line up. Dylan is a multi instrumentalist who has recently vacated the drum seat of Cape Town groovers, Captain Stu, and is currently focussing on his other critically acclaimed musical collaberation with Simon van Wyk - The Brothers Streep. Check out the ‘Streep’s’ on My Space here!!! Talent in huge bundles!!! Welcome on board Dylan.
