About this deal

No rehearsals, no pre-production, just us winging ideas to and fro, with the drums going on last of all in the studio – which is completely the opposite of how things are usually done, of course. Afterwards, all of the band members graciously came out to speak with the fans, sign merch and pose for selfies – they are genuinely ecstatic at the positive reception the album has had, and the public enthusiasm for this tour. The album is a true collaboration inasmuch as none of us knew what parts or melodies or lyrics might be added by anyone else - it was an immensely exciting process! Two encores; ‘ Do Anything You Wanna Do’ ( Eddie and the Hotrods) which had us all singing along and a rocked up version of T-Rex’s ‘ Solid Gold Easy Action’ (which sounded better than the original! Organ’s, hooks, slide guitar, its all here “taking chances till we die” offers Warne here, and that surely is what binds these songs and this band together.


We only all met up for the first time at Panther Studios in Reigate when the songs were completed to our satisfaction and were ready to mix…followed by many foaming pints and joie de vive’ness in the pub opposite, of course!The band was formed during the lockdown by Baz Warne (The Stranglers), Paul Gray (The Damned), Leigh Heggarty (Ruts DC) and Marty Love (Johnny Moped).

For those of us who’d been listening to the album, it was an absolute treat to hear the songs live – if anything they sound even better!

Down in the Hole’ is a nod to them, and those that live with the effects of depression to a greater or lesser degree on a daily basis. Today, we get to sample the first taste of Wingmen’s work in ‘Down In The Hole’, a song which channels the intense moods and feelings that lockdown created.
