protect your ears

A recent report suggests that listening to loud music can stimulate hair growth , particularly in the ears. However, keen Adverse Camber fan Moosa Patel (pictured below) stated in his opinion there was nothing to be worried about.

andy's birthday bash

Last sunday saw all the members of adverse camber's new line up..........birthday boy andy mapplebeck above....

dave mountain...not new at all!!
mick hayward.......ditto
anton kolaric...very new!!
and a few friends convene at the Graziers for a shindig to celebrate our drummer andy's birthday. A jolly good time was had by all. The pub was packed to capacity and proceeded to bounce uncontrollably through two sets by adverse camber and John Kemp's solo acoustic set during the interval. The second of the two sets well overran our curfew and featured the afore said John Kemp on lead vocals in Born to be wild, a guest performance by Tracy McAlpine singing Valerie in Amy Winehouse stylee and an unforgettable show by rockin' Rick fronting the band to blast out Whole lotta rosie, She sells sanctuary and Message in a bottle....fantastic feelings to see friends old and new having a really good afternoon............enjoy the pics.

croatian sensation

All change in the bass playing department of Fifty-50. Andy Quirke has now got his new project up and running with the entry on the live scene of the Cardinals in conjunction with Gary And Ian from Freeloader. We are delighted to have now secured the services of the "croatian sensation " Anton Kolaric to take over. Anton lives in Sheffield and is well known to us since he has stood in admirably in the past when needed and we are overjoyed to now have him on board permanently.
