We regret to announce that Lloyd’s dad Mick Bonson has died this week. Mick was always a great help to the band, driving us to rehearsals and also filming our first gig. He will be missed by everyone.
I’ve restored the audio form Lloyd’s interview with Sarah Howells for Alternate Times. To listen, go to the page.
On Saturday 23rd August, Adam’s sister Laura got married at Colchester Arts Centre. At the ceremony, Adam performed a piece of music he had written especially.
Also, at the reception, there was an open mic session, featuring a reunion of half of Black Fedora! Lloyd on vocals and Adam and Mike on guitar performed Breaking the Law and Pictures Of Matchstick Men.
Thanks to Nick Aldwinckle for the photos!
We’ve added details of Lloyd’s second book “The Nearly Men” to the discography section.
Following from the publication of “One-hit Wonders”, Lloyd has published a new book on Formula One called “The Nearly Men”, detailing drivers who have finished on an F1 podium, but never won a race. It is available from Amazon in paperback and Kindle format. We will have full details in the Discography section soon.
The band history has been restored to the website. At the moment, we have the main Masquerade/Project-X/Black Fedora timeline, all the various spin-off projects are being sorted, and will be up soon.
