No More Heroes Live Album

"Live N' Sleazy". Released 3 Feb 2003

I first saw No more Heroes (NMH) in late 1997 at the Vic Inn (Derby), or I think did. I was immediately blown away by them, the sound, spirit and atmosphere. It was all there, in the group there was.

As mentioned above the group contained Dave Berridge (vocals & gituar), Rob Holmes (bass & vocals), Sprock (keyboards) and Ash (drums). Over the next few years as they played at various places including Nottingham, Derby, Loughbrough, London, Ashton-under- Lyne, Hucknall and Hull. During this time the acclaimed album "Rats Ravens And Meninblack" was released.

Along with more venues being added to the list of  "places you got to play at" live material was getting better and better, so that they were invited to play at the "Rats Rally festival" & the "Holidays In The Sun 98" festival in Morecambe. The material was getting so good that a live album was contemplated. Dave & Rob were also beginning writing their own material. This does not mean they were giving up however, as can be seen in the review below.

Unfortunately after some more gigging pressure was begining to show on parts of the group, so Sprock decided to leave the group on happy terms.
This left the band off the road of a while and a replacement was required. At this moment we were introduced to and entertained by the presence of Andy Raven. Andy had known Dave for some time as he has played with him in various groups such as "Shut It" pictured below.

With Andy in the band, they went back on the road playiny the same venues added with newer venues such as Newcastle, Ipswich (Corn Exchange) and at the Notts County ground.

The next event to happen was the release of solo albums from Dave and Rob. I think the first album was The "Time Machine" from Rob, which is a good album with Mr Hip Hop & My Wierd Dreams as the outstanding tracks.

Almost straight after this there was the Dave Berridge album "Let Those Without Sin Cast The First Stone" released, which I assisted with. This album is also superb and for me my favourites are Benny Blue & Eyes.

This now takes you up to the present.
There is an announcement to be made hopefully soon regarding NMH and the live album "Live n' Sleazy". By all accounts it should be very good. 

The new album from Dave Berridge is to be released soon. The cover version to the one which will be released is below.
