Slim Chance, the band formed by the late great Ronnie Lane soon after he quit the Faces is releasing an outstanding new album ‘New Cross Road’ on their own label, Fishpool Records distributed by Cargo Records in November 2018.
The band has been active for 7 years championing and adding to Ronnie’s legendary musical legacy and this is their third album since then. Over that time their work has received widespread critical acclaim and delighted Slim Chance fans throughout the country.
Original members, Steve Bingham, Charlie Hart and Steve Simpson are joined by three top class musicians: Brendan O’Neill on drums, Billy Nicholls (ex Who) acoustic guitar and vocals, and Bob Dylan’s favourite, the phenomenal Geraint Watkins, on keys and vocals.
The new album features four songs of Ronnie’s including a classic version of ‘Debris’, a Pete Townshend approved version of ‘Squeezebox’, and some fine originals from the band one of which, ‘Flossie Lane’, was written in honour of Ronnie’s namesake the notorious Shropshire publican.
All together a cracking album from a great band.
