In the last of our series of articles, this week we focus on WeeMann, bass and triangle player for the band. Find out what happened to the multi-million pound inheritance to which he was heir and what happened when he announced his dislike for cider.  All this and more on our Band Pages.

Coming soon we will have articles on our guest musicians. Keep your eyes peeled for more information.

A couple of successful gigs this week.  Friday’s first trip to The Old Post Office in Shrewsbury went very well indeed, with the crowd getting into our brand of stupid from the start.  Saturday started a little badly as our van broke down on the way to the gig at The Talbot in St. Georges. Landlord Alan kindly lent us his van to help get the gear to the pub while Clatter waited for the breakdown van, but once we got set up things went well.

These gigs saw the introduction of Edcase’s bouzouki, christened Flash, into the band’s arsenal. A different sound to the guitar, it’s basically a larger, lower tuned mandolin and gives a great new colour to songs like Irish Rover and Saturday’s new addition to the set, Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da.

We leave for our epic Scotch North Of The Border Tour 2012 next week.  If you’re in the Dundee area, check out Gigs Calendar for details of dates and venues.

Thanks to everyone who came down and made our gig at The Duke so much fun.  No doubt we’ll be heading down that way again soon.

Dates are now pouring in for Lost The Plot’s Non-Festive International Tour 2012. Please check our Gigs Calendar for details.  In the meantime, we’ll be playing at The Old Post Office in Shrewsbury this Friday and The Talbot Inn in St.Georges on Saturday.

This week sees the second of our articles detailing the life and times of the band members. Clatter is up next. Find out what breed he belongs to, the stage school he attended, who his cousin is and who he has been stalking over on our Band Pages.

Next week, WeeMann.

Come back tomorrow to read the life story of our pet drummer, Clatter, tragically injured in a freak tambourine accident during last week’s Welsh Tour Of Wales 2012.

Fresh back from their groundbreaking Welsh Tour Of Wales 2012, the band are now preparing for the Scotch North Of The Border Tour at the end of October.

Prior to this are gigs at The Duke, Oakengates (Fri 5 Oct), The Old Post Office, Shrewsbury (Fri 12) and The Talbot Inn, St. Georges (Sat 13).  See our Gig Calendar for more details.

This week also sees the start of our series of articles focussing on the various band members.  Firstly it’s the turn of our Lord and High Master, the band’s MD, Ed “Case” Conway.  Find out where he grew up, why he’s as grumpy as he appears to be and what caused his head to swell to twice its original size in our Band Pages.

Next week, Clatter.
