Leamington Spa, they have grown to be a popular band wherever they
play, becoming regulars at Birmingham's Ronnie Scotts, and the
Coventry Jazz Festival.
THORIUM. A three-piece heavy
guitar act who have played live in Coventry for a number years. This
is a track from their first recording, completed in Sept 2000, which
already has Metal Hammer magazine and a few record labels interested.
FLASH VEGAS . Well, itís
blatant pop, and the first track recorded by these Coventry stars that
feature Rich on vocals and 2 female bass players. Now, you don't see
that every day!
