North By North East
A ground breaking weekend ahead for BB, two new venues and one new bass player.
With Mike unavailable this weekend the low bass duties fall to Molly May Hooper. So welcome and thanks to Molly who becomes the seventh player to fulfill the role. Will give you a moment to see if you can conjure up the other six for yourselves and list them at the end for you.
Yes two new venues, in fact two new towns. Rather surprisingly having made many trips into South Yorkshire, that Doncaster as yet remains unexposed to BB'delights.
All that is to be rectified this Saturday June 15th at the gloriously titled, to give it's Sunday name Cask Corner Dive Bar & Bordello Cocktail Lounge, one of Dony's premier live venues, situated on Cleveland Street in the town centre.
Rather splendidly BB will be joined for both gigs by Lord Montague Jaques Fromage III bringing his Steampunk Funk Bizarre show to town, featuring work from his debut album, which presuming the late flurry of activity prior to him leaving The USA was fruitful, will see it's first light of day over here.
It will also be an opportunity to hear live airings of the BB/LMJFIII collaborations and another bonus, admission is free!
A long run up the A19 on Sunday to be at the "Tiffin On The Trinc" event at Hartlepool.
Something a little different in store during the day, as events are to be set on "The Trinc", which is The HMS Trincomalee, a frigate of the line commisioned in 1817.
Later in the day it is back to the quayside, where BB and LMJFIII are joined by Black Country Steampunk exponents, the intensely energetic, Birthrite for the evening show.

Oh and the other bassists.
Over 200 shows from original member Stefan Bekker
100 plus, from John "Dark Horse" Ferguson.
Steve Hexter played at The Patriot in Crumlin and The Sitwell tavern in the earlier part of last year.
Mike, who now has around 150 gigs under his belt.
Sven Breuel, played on and produced the new recording sessions plus a few gigs in Europe.
The one you probably missed, an English guy recruited to play one show in Hamburg at the end of the last German trip by the name of Newton.
