Every year Hastings Fat Tuesday gets a little bit bigger and a little bit better, this years celebration was no exception. The Saturday acoustic tour was a blast. Tobys’ all-acoustic vocal and resonator guitar sound was joined on Double bass and Washboard percussion by John Nicholls and Andy Maby respectively.
The eponymously named Slim Monday saw the full band very much at home playing a special pre-mardi Gras set at Old Town favourite The Lord Nelson to a magick filled crowd of fisherman, beloved locals and the hard-working Fat Tuesday crew. Fat Tuesday itself saw a solo KSS set touring the Old Town in amongst 20 or so other acts, each playing 20 minute sets in each venue.
Recording sessions continue of new KING SIZE SLIM tunes. An array of begged, borrowed but not stolen pre-amps, mics’ and other assorted pre-loved equipment are being gathered and used to great affect.
