HAPPY NEW YEARS! Here's a message from Simon Kendall:
'The Slugs will be bringing in the new year at a private gig in snowy Kelowna, a town we first played in 1980. We're excited about 2018, because Dec 8 will be our 40th anniversary! In fact, an earlier version of the band had played intermittently before that, but this was the date that Doug Bennett, Wally Watson, John Burton, Richard Baker, Steve Bosley and Simon Kendall first performed together. This is the group who went on to tour North America and recorded 6 albums over the next 13 years. We are working on plans for special edition memorabilia, and digging in the archives for previously unreleased material. We'll keep you posted on developments.
We would like to wish our fine fans all the best for a wonderful 2018, and we hope to see you all this coming year. Happy New Year!'
Santa's working on creating some goodies for you this Christmas season, and Doug and the Slugs will deliver them! Stay tooned! Patches Twinkletree (Ted Okos), Blizzard Merrybottom (John Burton), Pompom Jolytoes (Steve Bosley), Chestnut Frostypants (Wally Watson), Pompom Jollytoes the 2nd (Simon Kendall), and Candycane Brandysnap (Richard Bryan Baker). Special mention to former lead Doug Bennett (Bootsie Silverlights) RIP ... See MoreSee Less
