Mudkiss are having a musical showcase night, featuring three bands/musicians who we have worked with over the past year, with interviews, reviews and photoshoots. They are three local bands, apart from two members of 'Dressing For Pleasure' who hail from Birmingham.Heading the evening's entertainment we have Warrington's magnificent psychedelic, rock band 'The Phoenix Experiment', and another Warrington talent in the form of 'Chris Fox', or Foxy as I call him. Chris is normally the lead singer in 'Kindest Of Thieves' but this evening he will be performing his own brand of acoustic melancholia tunes. The gorgeous, three women in 'Dressing For Pleasure', will certainly be pleasuring you this evening, with their line in vintage tinged, alternative rock. Quite possibly dressed in vintage corsets and attire, these luscious, and talented musicians were one of the support acts who toured with Adam Ant on his 2011 comeback tour. And last but not least we have the gregarious Master of Ceremonies Mr Les Glover, who is also a master guitar player.

* On a sadder note, during our trip to Rebellion we were taken aback to hear that local musician Daniel Rimmer had passed away. A former singer with the excellent Warrington band The 66 and then going onto form his own band White Vinyl, both bands we had covered in reviews or interviews over the years. Daniel was an excellent frontman and it goes without saying that he will be sadly missed by friends and family. Rest in peace 'Rimmer' you'll always be the Jim Morrison of Warrington.
