BERMONDSEY JOYRIDERS mainman GARY LAMMIN has announced a pair of instore dates in support of his recently released debut solo album.
A veteran of the London punk scene, Lammin recorded Gary Guitar Lammin with legendary SEX PISTOLS producer Dave Goodman, but the recordings were shelved following Goodman's death in 2005.
Lammin will be performing in solo acoustic mode at....
25 March – Raven Records,74 Bromley Road, Beckenham - 4pm
1 April – All Ages Records, 27 Pratt Street, Camden - 4pm
Both dates have some personal significance to Lammin, and to his close working relationship with Goodman. Raven Records is “literally a few streets down” from Goodman’s former Mandala Studios, where the bulk of the recording was completed more than a decade ago. Meanwhile, Lammin says of his appearance at All Ages in Camden, “I particularly wanted a gig for the album on April Fool’s day, as it was a day that me and Dave Goodman spoke about a bit”. He explains that the figure of the fool was often in their minds as these philosophical, dramatic, and dream-like songs took shape; “we both found it interesting that in a lot of Shakespearian plays, it is the court jester or the fool (who often is only pretending to be a fool), is the only person who is actually is privy to all information - because nobody takes him seriously”.
