Les Davidson and Paul Roberts had been thinking for some time about getting the band together to do a few gigs. The last proper tour was in 1991 in Holland and Germany and had been great fun. This was when "Driver's Seat" got to number one in Holland after an ad campaign for a car stereo. Since then, and four albums later... nothing.
Finally Les came up with a solution. Why not go out as an acoustic duo? This would circumvent the time and expense of getting a band rehearsed and out on the road and it would test the waters. After all, will anybody still be interested?
"The Slaughtered Lamb" in London's Clerkenwell was the choice for their first performance as Sniff'n'The Tears in twenty seven years. Organised by Paul's musician daughter Caitlin, it was a great evening. We’ll be organising more gigs so watch this space.
These two are up next:
Saturday 6th April, double headliner with Danni Nicholls,
Little Rabbit Barn, Ardleigh, near Colchester, UK.
