Slim Chance are coming to Sheffield
There are still a few tickets left for our overdue return to Sheffield on the 29th April and we're off to Pontesbury in Shropshire, the following day, now SOLD OUT. Pontesbury is little more than a stones throw from the Fishpool, the birthplace of a much of Slim Chance’s music - we always enjoy playing Shropshire - we think of it as a return to our roots!
"Slim Chance have beautifully honored their late leader’s legacy while emerging as a magical band in their own right...... Pandemic resistant whoopee!"
Kris Needs, Record Collector
THE PHOENIX TAPES is a collection of fourteen previously unreleased tracks recorded by the band since its reincarnation some 10 years ago. Originally posted as a series on Youtube in the last part of 2020 to raise spirits in lockdown, these recordings feature performances from many of the fine musicians who have played and sung with the band in the last decade, and also a brilliant contribution from Ronnie Lane's trusted friend and collaborator, Pete Townshend. Besides three originals from the band there are covers ranging from Bob Dylan to Leadbelly, Cat Stevens to Jagger/Richards, as well as vibrant new versions of four of Ronnie's classic songs.
