The Air Stream
8:30 PM | 22nd May
To celebrate the release of The Phoenix Tapes Slim Chance present the 'Air Stream' - their own streamed show from Perry Vale Studios, South London, including backstage conversation with Passing Show director Rupert Williams. The band's show will be followed the next night by a screening of the Passing Show in full.
The band will focus on Ronnie’s sure fire classics, as well as a couple of songs drawn from the Phoenix Tapes. We’re all really looking forward to getting back together, and it's going to be a unique experience for sure. If you wish, please send in questions for Rupert and the band in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org. The whole show will be available for 24 hours after streaming. Watch it in your living room, up a mountain, on a bus... wherever!
The Phoenix Tapes
Slim Chance’s fourth album, The Phoenix Tapes, is due to be released on May 21st. The album features tracks recorded at various times in the last 10 years. Pete Townshend makes a magical appearance on Travellers’ Joy, which was written by Billy Nicholls shortly after Ronnie had left the Faces and they toured round Ireland together. The Phoenix Tapes also features fine contributions from ex-Slim Chancers Alun Davies and Des Horsfall, drummers Colin Davey, John Lingwood and Jim Russell as well as from the band as it is now. We're very grateful to all involved. The tracks were originally posted on Youtube in 2020 to raise spirits and relieve lockdown boredom. Besides vibrant versions of four classic Ronnie Lane songs and three originals, the material reflects the band’s musical roots ranging from Dylan to Leadbelly, Yusuf Cat Stevens to Jagger/Richards. The Phoenix Tapes will be released on Slim Chance's own Fishpool Records, distributed by Cargo and available on our website as well as other locations.
