Where Is The Drummer?

We dedicate this clip to all bands who haven’t yet employed an army of roadies and who are not yet playing their gigs in stadiums.

We love it anyway!

A Couple of Christmas Crackers

We thought that we would share with you a couple of ‘reflective’ songs that we have recently recorded.

Members of The A52s playing on these recordings are: Lewis ‘Squeezebox’ Noble, Chris ‘Mando Man’ Radlett, Mike ‘Champagne’ Hughes, Chad ‘Qwibble’ Bean, Jim ‘Jet Pack’ Croft & Rob ’10 Piece’ Campbell. The sound was engineered by Stan ‘Boggie’ Dadley-Webb.

Many of you know and love the collective sound of the A52s, but we thought you should be made aware of the various solo recordings made by the band. Each of these albums is available for £2.99 by mail order from K-Tel Tribute Acts Inc.  We hope you fund our retirements by buying a copy or two:

The A52s Are Recording Again!

This weekend, A52s have been ‘back in the studio’ working on their all important Christmas number one single. The studio was actually Rob’s garage – the roof of which has been converted into a nifty space where drums can be properly set up and there was just enough space for Stan, the rest of the band and the recording equipment. Stan set up the (rather complex) gear and ensured the raw recorded material was just so.

We’re rather chuffed with the early results. Stan has produced a preliminary mix and you can hear it by clicking on the ‘play’ button here:

We just need to add the sleigh-bells now….

Friday Night Fun At The Red Lion

What a great way to spend a Friday night! The band started the evening with a delicious curry courtesy of Anne and Chris, then headed off down the road to The Red Lion in Hollington. This friendly pub is Chris and Anne’s local. What a great pub it is – full of charm, great beer and friendly people.

The set was a delight to play. We particularly enjoyed seeing Chad substitute song lyrics with choices from the pub menu written up on the wall opposite.

Thanks to everyone who turned up – especially Sue and Nigel. Great to see you! Thanks also to landlord Terry for making us feel welcome. We’ve even arranged a return performance on New Year’s Eve. Hope to see you there!

Scary music is guaranteed!

The Legend of Beürtelœppener

Meet Beürtelœppener, Norse god of refreshment:

According to ancient mythology, Beürtelœppener left Valhalla ten thousand years ago in search of mead and merriment. After many many perils and adventures, he finally settled in Noble Studios where he watches over The A52s.

Beürtelœppener is a demanding fellow. He must be fed crown corks every few minutes or he gets angry and sings Nordic pop songs. The band can only take so much Aha, so we are careful to offer our pagan friend many liquid sacrifices.

Cheers Beürtelœppener!
