Introducing Last Gang in Town:
Gary Walker, leader of the band, the guy who started Last Gang in Town... more about Gary
Mark Halford, the heart & soul of the band, the technician keeping Last Gang in Town on the road. Born 1958, Leicester, went the same schools as David Ike & Gary Lineker. Leicester City season ticket holder, now living in Winsford, Cheshire. Saw the Sex Pistols September '76 at Quaintways in Chester... didn't change his life... played guitar in "The Cause", Winsford's most famous band... (allegedly)... check out the 7 inch "False Tears"... comes up on ebay now and again. A Fender Telecaster and an original Park or Marshall valve amp cranked way beyond 11... guitar style described as... brutal... sound engineer famed for live recordings & bootlegging gigs... 50 years of rocking has left him totally deaf when it suits... will completely ignore you at gigs... probably sorting the PA... a biker with a love for real road racing who rides old British iron... BSA's & Triumphs... a Granddad with attitude... not ready to go quietly into the night just yet...
Ben Relton, the joker in the pack, the beat behind the band, drum tutor, actor... a man of many talents... Ben provides the solid backbone that drives Last Gang in Town, the engine room and some very nice backing vocals as well... more about Ben to follow...
Introducing Toby Ridehalgh who has played a couple of important gigs with Last Gang in Town when Ben was unavailable. Toby originally auditioned for us when he was just 16, putting in a sterling performance and winning us over so much that we stayed in touch over the years always keeping him in mind. In August 2019 Toby stepped in for us at the last minute with no rehearsal so we could play the Spike Island Punk Festival at the Snig. Toby stepped up in August 2020 for a gig at The Brown Cow, Eccleston before going to work in Costa Rica from where he has recently returned. We hope to see more of Toby but will need to work around his other comitments. Thanks for stepping up when needed Toby!
