h band shows in the Netherlands and Germany!

8th Aug 2003
"Ahaaaaaaarghghghghgh! My long-missed shiverin hearties,
Good news!
The HMS Saucy Sue will set sail from London bound for the low countries and due to arrive on September 19th. Oh but she contains the rarest of cargo.. including, this time, my friend and yours, Pete Trewavas on bass. The rest of the band is unchanged (apart from in the brain of course..)
I'm proud, delighted and relieved to announce another chance to experience the dark and beautiful magic which is my band of eight like-minded sorcerers, committed to the summoning up of spirits and the stirring up of souls. This time - if you're in the right frame of spirit - you might just see them..
We can do it without you. But imagine if you missed it.. You only live once.. this time."
