Track Of The Day: Slim Chance
Returning to tread the boards once again, Slim Chance are celebrating the spirit and songs of their dearly departed friend and bandmate, the renowned Ronnie Lane (Small Faces, Faces). They provide the latest Track Of The Day. Check out all the past Tracks Of The Day here.
Slim Chance are the band Ronnie Lane formed when he left The Faces. Originals Steve Simpson, Charlie Hart, Steve Bingham, Alun Davies and Colin Davey, joined by Geraint Watkins, are playing Ronnie’s songs in the spirit of the band’s previous incarnations.
Simpson says of this celebration of Lane’s legacy: “It was so satisfying to realise that we were recording in the same way as we had all those years ago, with Ronnie.”
Lane succumbed to pneumonia, in the final stages of his progressive multiple sclerosis, in June 1997.
New album The Show Goes On – Songs Of Ronnie Lane is released next month, but in the meantime we have a free download of the lads’ re-recorded version of Flags & Banners.
Go here to get the track.
Be sure to check out Slim Chance live at The Half Moon, Putney – for the official London launch of the new album – on Saturday, June 9.
