PostHeaderIcon Totally Swept Away released in February

Finally – the long awaited album – Totally Swept Away will be released by Perfect Pitch in February.

The origianl album – “Hearts of Oak” was written over 20 years ago – after the demise of Iron Maiden – It features songs with a “sea” theme – which obvously led to it being given a “Folk Rock” genre. Paul – quite happy with this, has re-vamped and in some cases re-written some of the material, added a new song “Pirates” inspired by the Johnny Depp “Pirate” films.

It features many local folk hero’s playing a variaty of insruments which were beyond Pauls capability (Melodian, Mandolin and lead guitar solo’s) including Godfrey Williams, Mark Tivey, and rock players Colin Medlock, Rob Harris, Lenny Davidson and Jeff and Shelia Taylor. Again – the family is involved with Rachael and Victoria on Vocals, violin, recorders and this time with son Matt O’Neill on percussion. Sue does a bit of singing takes all of the photographs! Even Grandson George gets a credit on the track Submarine.

The Ablum will be available from Paul’s Website in CD and Downoad format, and the usual CD Baby, I-tunes and Napster outlets – and we may add a link from the BIM site too.

PostHeaderIcon A “Mini BIMMIE” Saturday 13 November 2010

Good news – we are having a “mini BIMMIE” (Bolton Iron Maiden Major Imbibing Event) on Saturday 13 November at Ye Olde Man and Sythe in Churchgate Bolton.

This is a bit of a special event -a get together in memory of the lovely Lesley Green who sadly passed away this year. Beany, Sag, Paul &Sue, Derek, Dylan and Paul H will be coming (It’s a bit far for Terry and Hazel to come from Dubai for a couple of pints), and all are welcome. We are hoping Dylan will bring his guitar and add to the festivities.

Paul and Sue will get to the pub around 4pm and look forward to seeing as many pals as possible. But…remember – we are all getting old and may not recognise all the faces or names – so don’t be shy – come in with a badge!
