Us snakes were very sad to learn of the passing of a hero of ours at the weekend. No, not Lou Reed. But the great stunt man and director Hal Needham– behind Smokey and The Bandit and Cannonball Run.
It’s hard to imagine what our lives would be like without a childhood of such fine road movies. Who doesn’t like watching the police getting smashed to pieces by ‘big rigs’.
In tribute – we’ve uploaded a free download of the classic Smokey and the bandit theme ‘Eastbound and Down’ by Jerry Reed. You can get it here
In the meantime, we’ve been recording some more tracks for our debut LP. Yes, we’ve beanz saying that for ages but it really is happening. And it’s sounding good. We’ll place a few samples up here soon.
In the meantime, we’re in a period of hibernation as we work on a few other ‘projects’ – not least – having babies! But watch this space for a few xmas and new year dates…
After a brief hibernation period The Legendary snakeSNAKEsnake return to The Street Inn Saturday October 12th!
We always have a blast here – must be something in the alcohol! Looking forward to having some fun.
Gunna be a long day as we’ll have spent the day in the studio working on the album so at least we’ll be rehearsed! Watch this space for a taster of how it sounds soon…
We’ll also be adding some more dates soon. Can’t tell you too much yet as we’re waiting on details but – WASSAIL!!
Hope to see you there!
