PRIME NUMBERS
Prime Numbers are THE perfect covers band for almost any party or celebration. They also
regularly perform at pubs and clubs around their local area of north-east Surrey. I (John Gardner)
saw them recently (December 2012) and was itching to get up and dance almost straight away.
From 'One Step Beyond' (Madness) to 'Moondance' (Van Morrison) - and many more besides -
they can make your special event one to remember!!!

THE WEEDKILLERS
The Weedkillers are a Brighton (UK) based band, formed in 1993. Between them and their
sister-group 'The Cracklin' Griffins', they have played all over the UK at festivals, universities,
colleges, pubs and clubs - always going down a storm.

The band is superb live - guided by Big Jim's frontman antics and supported by John Hiom and Joe
Lacey's virtuoso performances on fiddle and guitar respectively. The fine talents of Dave Kaye
on bass and the controlled energy of Trudy Percival on drums complete this rough but ready stage act.

Notable achievements in the Weedkillers scrapbook include: headlining the Mean Fiddler (London),
playing to crowds of over a thousand at Guildford's Surrey University and Civic Centre, and supporting
the likes of Geno Washington, The Men They Couldn't Hang, Shriekback, and The Wurzels.

They have recently released their sixth album 'More is MORE!!' which is already destined to be their best yet.

The music of The Weedkillers is notoriously hard to define: is it pop and rock, fused
with folk and country perhaps? It's up to you to decide!

Whatever box you want to draw around them, it is true to say that their pure Weedkiller style has
been cultivated over years of playing and evolving. It could be called simply - "the sound that is
Big Jim and the Weedkillers".
Buy their CDs or listen to a track at the RECORD SHOP.


THE LOVELY BLAST
The Lovely Blast are a Brighton-based power-pop-punk twosome:
Jim on Guitar & Vox and Trudy on drums.

UP HOLSTER
Is a band from all over the UK that have a guitar and keyboard based attack with
a strong, deep backbeat, which provides a danceable (yet intelligent) sound.

Ginge steers the group - the man on the mike and the man with the pen.

Jim Best, John Fiddle, Dave Drum and Julian Tardo ride alongside - completing
the unlikely posse that sails headlong into the realms of fantastical encounters
and everyday occurrences - with great depth of feeling and sensitivity.

Their influences include B&Q crisps, Crunchy Rolos (RIP) and alcohol.
Catch them live - not to be missed!
