Last year a few members of The Bedlam Six and I got together with Leeds band Hope & Social as part of the latter’s Crypt Covers series. The two bands arranged and recorded a version of Simon & Garfunkel’s “Keep The Customer Satisfied” over the course of ten coffee-fuelled hours.
We had such a good time that we resolved to get together and play the thing live at a brace of double-headline shows in our respective home towns of Manchester and Leeds (entitled “The Bedlam Social Club” – naturally!) in which the two bands will play a set of their own material and then come together at the end to play some covers suggested by the audience.
If you have any suggestions about what we should play together please write to me via the Contact Section of this website.
