Spelk @ The Bridge Hotel. October 7.

Chris Sharkey (guitar), Andy Champion (electric bass) & Adrian Tilbrook (drums)
Left-handed powder blue Fender Strat, Rickenbacker bass, Gretsch drum kit. 
Cymbal crash. Fasten your seat belts. Restless punk-jazz bass lines. 6 string alchemy. 
Concentration etched. Four-fingered fretwork. Destination unknown. 
Jaco and Jack attack Andy attack! Bass snare tom nowhere to run. 
Sharkey hit on a blues. Sharkey shook it off. Sharkey ripped it apart. 
Pedals bass drum and boards. Eyeballs-out workout. 
Chameleon. Chimera. Kamikaze. 
Keep your seat belts fastened. Concede. Submit. Survive.
