BowieNetter James Ewers (nephew of message board legend, Keiths) has sent me details of a couple of forthcoming shows he is playing with his band,
Our forthcoming gigs are the Bull and Gate, Kentish Town on the 16th June at 9.30pm and the Hope and Anchor on the 30th of June, probably at 8.30pm.
We are a very lively band, our gigs end with Pretty Thing which is drenched in sweat and distortion. Our main influences are Bowie, Blur, Lou Reed, Bob Dylan, Nirvana, Tom Petty etc. We are currently recording an album's worth of material with producer Rob Cass in Notting Hill. We are feeling confident as the stuff is sounding great.
Those of you who witnessed a half of The Fonda's at a recent Bowie fan gathering in Soho, will know they're more than capable, despite being almost overshadowed (for all the wrong reasons) by Uncle Keith's spirited rendition of Rebel Rebel.
Even though I have used the rather anonymous shot above, I can say that The Fonda's are a good-looking bunch too, you can see for yourself, and find out more about the band, by clicking on the hand on Fonda Fonda's arse in said photograph! };-)
