paddy goes to holyhead

Paddy Goes To Holyhead are to reform for one night only to perform a gig on St Patrick's Night at The Cavern, Raynes Park, London on March 17th, which is the "most famous bar in the world" according to the gig poster, just in case you've never heard of it before.

The band supposedly played their last ever gig two years ago at the much missed Merton Manor Club, London in celebration of their 30th anniversary.

MetalTalk didn't believe a word of it and knock us down with a feather, the Paddies are back for the craic.

The line-up is, as if you didn't know...

Danny Hynes (Weapon UK)
Andy Burgess - Guitar/Vocals (Praying Mantis)
Chris Troy - Bass/Vocals (Praying Mantis)
Tino Troy - Guitar/Vocals (Praying Mantis)
Darren Lee - Drums (Weapon UK)

We're sure there will be a guest, or two, turning up on the night as well.

Former members have included Andy Scott and Mick Tucker (Sweet), original Weapon drummer Bruce Bisland, now filling the drum stool in Sweet, Mal McNulty, current vocalist with Slade and a former member of Sweet, Phil Lanzon (Uriah Heep), another former member of Sweet... there seems to a bit of a Sweet trend going on here... Syd Twynham (Les Gray's Mud) and Pete Bullick (Deborah Bonham Band).

Paddy Goes To Holyhead will be playing a set of traditional Irish tunes and Shamrocking classics.

Tickets are available direct from the venue.
