Her voice, stage presence, mid solo gin pouring and shoulder climbing antics will be sorely missed.
I wish her luck with what ever she does in the future.
In the short term, Sober Dave and I will be singing. So far this has been working out OK.
We both sing so we're not cancelling any shows. I'm kind of in two minds myself as to whether we should just go with that option, or find a new singer.
I sing OK, and Dave has a good punk voice and has sung lead vocals before so I'm not worried about how it will sound, but I do think we do lose something when the singer(s) are trapped holding guitars. For now anyway, Dave will be doing most of the singing and I'll be doing one or two tracks.
We have placed a few adverts looking for a new singer, but I guess we're not really in a hurry to fill the slot. If somebody amazing comes along, then that'll be cool, but if they don't, I'm quite happy for things to carry on as a four-piece.
If you know of anyone male or female who would like to try out, then get in touch.
In the mean time here's some footage off Hazel drinking gin of the floor :-)
