THE adverse camber

I have now played about 10 gigs with Adverse Camber. After originally being a temporary stand in this has now become permanent. The band is very tight and energetic and I am enjoying it immensely. The band can be seen on performing "all or nothing" from our first ever gig. Just type adverse camber into the youtube search box and we appear as the top choice. See below pics of who we are.

SIMON KENNERLEY - bass.........also plays with little caesar and no quarter

MICK HAYWARD - vocals........also plays with fifty 50

ANDY MAPPLEBECK - drums........also plays with joe gallaghers noise and keith allen (lilly's dad!)

I will add an adverse camber gig list to my sidebar asap. Look forward to seeing you at some gigs.

back on the blog

After months of having vey little of interest to report I have finally been spurred into action so a brief catch up is in order.
Firstly I have radically changed my guitar set up mainly by changing my guitar amp. After years of Marshall allegiance in now use a Rivera M100 2x12 combo..details are in the upgraded quick click to my gear on the sidebar.
Also updated is the current Fifty-50 gig list for 2008.
However the bigger news is that since the back end of 2007 alongside Fifty-50 I now play guitar for Adverse Camber and even more shocking comes the revelation that there is to be a reforming of Tiger Bay with all my original buddies from the final 1996 line up. Details of that period in my history will appear in my band history section when I finally catch up. Check out the current Tiger Bay goings on by visiting the website listed in my updated links section.
