BILLY BRAGG PICKS SLIM CHANCE
Billy Bragg has picked his favorite records on eMusic and chosen The Show Goes On as one of his favourite albums
"I was a huge Ronnie Lane fan. I still am. He's probably the only artist whose CD never left my car, and that's saying something — I had this best-of under the dashboard."
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the birth of the band and the release of the hit single How Come, Slim Chance's 2013 recording of the song will be released on 24th June. Listen to it on Soundcloud, buy it as a download on the usual channels, and bombard your local radio station with requests for them to play it!
Our long-awaited album is out now. We had a lot of fun making new recordings of Ronnie's timeless material, and the album features Geraint Watkins and Nick Pentelow along with the regular band.

RONNIE LANE, renowned for his part in both the Small Faces and the Faces, wrote some of the most heartfelt and haunting songs of the 60s and 70s. Shunning commercial success he created and toured with his travelling circus, the Passing Show, and left a highly influential musical legacy. More

Hello! I just wanted to say how much me and my friends enjoyed Saturday night in Worthen! It was really brilliant and everyone enjoyed themselves so much! The songs were so much like the originals and a great time was had by all of us!!
You’ve got to be up on your feet with Slim Chance. It was a great show.
All the best, Rob
Just a quick line to say how much we enjoyed the gig on Saturday night we thought it was fantastic, hope you get around the area again soon. Highlight of the evening, The Poacher, brilliant. Thank you.
Regards Max Beddow
On the night i was over whelmed and cried at a few songs especially when Stan Lane cried at DEBRIS it set me off to. I am still buzzing from that night . I honestly listen to Slim Chance EVERY DAY at some point as it just keeps me going . I cant wait to see them again and i hope Ronnie is looking down and enjoying the show too .
Kind Regards Iris Jones
His music is a treasure that he left for us to enjoy. If Slim Chance plays anywhere near me, I will be there.
The band was exceptional and did Ronnie's (& a few others) songs proud. The feel, the craftsmanship and general good vibe in the band made it a memorable night for me and the 4 others in our party.
Thanks to you and the chaps for last nights gig. Wonderful joyous stuff.
Had to write this, when I found you guys had reformed it put a huge smile on my face! This is excellent news.
Ronnies/your music is a permanent addition in my collection and played on a regular basis and there's a new generation of kids listening to it now... mainly my kids 8yrs & 5yrs they love it too.
I just had to drop you all a line to say how the family and myself thoroughly enjoyed your performance at Rhythm Festival 2011, on Saturday afternoon. You were in my opinion the best act of the day
Just wanted to say congratulations and thanks for a great evenings entertainment, haven’t enjoyed myself so much for years! Single is great too. Cheers Phil Babbs
Went to see Slim Chance at the Borderline recently - absolutely brilliant show!
It’s about twenty-five years ago I‘ve heard the music of Slim Chance for the first time. It’s was beautiful. Today I’m hearing the new cd every day travelling by car. Your music is like a very old single malt whisky: delicious! I hope, I can see you one day in Germany. Thank you very much. Broder
Just a quick message to say I came to the Slim Chance gig at The Stetson in Ravenshead last month & it was fantastic. I'm only 33 so never got to see the band the first time round but I have loved Ronnie Lane for the last 15 years & couldn't believe his band were playing round the corner from me.
Thanks for the album. It arrived just before I set off for the Anitpodes. Lovely stuff, ESP From the Late to the Early, one of my favourite Laney songs. Good luck with the record. Best, Billy (Bragg)
I listened last night. I really love the tracks you've done. You're capturing Ronnie's spirit. Pete (Townshend)
