Six Strings Good, Twelve Strings Better!

Jangled up in blue

Mini LP CD

The Lucys

The Lucys started off as a labour of love, when long-term Flamin’ Groovies uber-fan and Bucketful of Brains contributor John Bottomley wanted something to do with his new 12-string Rickenbacker. Telecaster / Epiphone player Vince Cory suggested a recording project and these seven cover versions are the result. John and Vince are joined by Mike Moran on simple (but not simplistic) drums. Choice of songs goes from the well known (Love Is All Around, When You Walk In The Room, Here Without You) through semi obscure  – Hearts In Her Eyes by John Wicks and Will Birch, September Gurls by Alex Chilton – to totally obscure such as Until You Came Along (Gary Louris for Golden Smog) and Love That Never Dies, a little known Roger McGuinn/Stan Lynch co-write.  Throughout the record lives up to its name with John jangling away to great effect. When Hollywood finally gets round to making the Bucketful of Brains story – and it must be any day now – The Lucys will be a shoe-in for Band In Bar.

This release is a strictly limited edition but I believe there are still some copies left. Contact jbottomley@hotmail.co.uk for more information.
