The Emperors Of The North

Once upon a time....way back in the annals of time....before Adam were a lad.... as they say in Yorkshire... a guitarist wandered into a magic cave, (actually it was a dry dock at the Venetian Marina but hey, who cares !!).

The guitarist enquired of the keeper of this magic cave, “I say old chap, can you paint my bottom black”.

Before he had a chance to reply with a well chosen witticism, the guitarist spotted an ancient document, roughly pinned to the cave wall which contained ghostly images of people unknown from distant lands.

(Actually it was a faded photo of a local rock band called Sinner)

“I say old chap, do you play in a band” said the guitarist. “Oh yes” said the keeper of the cave....” do you? “. “Not at the moment “came the guitarist’s reply.

What happened next has been lost in the dim and distant past, but what we do know is that eventually the guitarist and the keeper of the magic cave discovered another, secret, magic cave, within the magic cave (otherwise known as a loft) and it was from within this place that strange sounds began to escape across the marina on a Saturday afternoon.

Sounds made by various strange and mystical instruments which in their own turn and been fashioned by ancient and revered craftsmen wizards called Fender, Marshall, Vox, Peavey and not forgetting ....Gibson.

As time passed other mysterious persons came along to contribute to these strange sounds (otherwise known as music) and eventually a passable kind of pleasant listening started to emerge and attract the attention of unwary passersby.

Not only were there guitarists in this happy band but bass players, singers and yes.....even drummers came to join in the throng....but alas...none stayed for too long... UNTIL NOW THAT IS!!
