A word (or several) from Roy:
The last Captain's Blog entry was back in December 2016 but there will be a new up in the coming month with news of the new album. The last recording session will be this coming Friday 24th March. There have been some epic performances and I am very happy with how this is turning out. This will be released under my name - Roy Weard - and not a be a band album as such. To facilitate that there is a new website, still in a formative state but taking shape.
I am planning an album launch gig in Brighton - at The Real Music Club of course - at the Prince Albert on Saturday 22nd April. This will be a special one off show with Nick May (Whimwise, The Enid) on guitar and Damo Waters (Clowwns, Electric Soft Parade, Zofff, Crayola Lectrern....and more) on drums with Cliff Dowding on Keyboards, Andy Power on bass and Pixie Tonks Dhel on vocals. A new band may come later this year.
There is also news of another live show in Victoria Park, London with some of the original members of That Legendary Wooden Lion you can find setails of this on the gigs page. I continue to do the occasional show with the That Legendary Wooden Lion - as and when they crop up. Details on here, of course.
There is a Bandcamp site and 'Writing In A Skeleton Key' can be bought from there either as a download or a physical CD.' It is also available in corporeal form from our shop - listen to some sample tracks,
You can read some of things people have said about the album on the reviews page.
This website is a musical history of Roy Weard. Roy was the founder member of Wooden Lion a band that played the Windsor and Watchfield free festivals in the 70s. He later went went on to sing, write and record with both Dogwatch' and ' Roy Weard and Last Post'. In 2006, Roy, together with The Cardinal Biggles, synth wizard from the original Wooden Lion, and Steve Bensusan, guitar virtuoso from the Last Post began to put That Legendary Wooden Lion together. This band gigged through to the end of 2011 but broke up the following year.
