2018 - Newsletter from Leo
2017 has shot by like a whirlwind.
Thanks very much to those of you who
were able to come and see us play. Itís

Hundred Seventy SplitSince our last
studio release there have been many
requests for another live CD. To make
that possible we've recorded most of the
gigs over the past twelve months. From

released later in the year. Weíll let
you know the release date, CD title and
track lineup as soon as the mixing is
finished. We hope youíll approve!
See you out on the Road
