Alchemeon: exciting new band forming!

Posted by Wudmaster on 10/11/08

A new hybrid of Now and Laughing Sun is forming and has been named Alchemeon by keyboard virtuoso Jim. Several rehearsals have now taken place featuring some old songs, some new songs, and some material from the Space Goats.

At present the line-up consists of Pok on guitar and voice, Big Jim Peters on keys, keys, more keys, even more keys and voice, Iggy on drums and George on bass.

There is a lot of potential for splendour here, and the possibility of gigs is distinct, including perhaps some festivals and some European dates. A few names for this ensemble are under consideration.

Due to Pok’s crazy schedule it looks as if the next gathering of these souls will be in December. Further updates will be forthcoming.
