A Message From Gaz, Our Bass Player
Unfortunately, on a personal level for me, as things continue to progress and the future prospects of The Longsands look brighter than ever, it is now time for me to hang up my boots (or bass, more specifically!).

As some of you will know recent developments in my personal life and the demands of my job and the band over the next 12 months have made me reach this decision which, trust me, wasn't one I've enjoyed doing or found particularly easy.

Having been in The Longsands from the beginning, calling time on it has definitely made me appreciate what I have experienced… Pinching Bruce Foxton's wine back stage on the FTJ tour, recording the album at stupid o'clock in the morning at the studio, the album launch night in June at Newcastle University and sharing various hideously coloured Travelodges across the country enjoying (or at times enduring!) minimal sleep and maximum alcohol consumption night after night!

I'd like to sign off in style and take the opportunity to thank all the fans who have, and continue to make this all possible. My last gig as The Longsands’ official bass player will now be the DVD launch at The Cluny on Sunday 9th December, although I will remain close to the band and help out wherever I can.

I'd appreciate it if as many of you as possible could make The Cluny show and join me in a beer or 10! I, more than anyone, want to see the band succeed and wish them all the best in 2013.

Cheers
Gaz
