CB October 15th 2008 (with The New Giants)


The New Giants (L-R): John (guitar & backing vocals), Nigel (guitar & lead vocals), Gary (drums), Les (bass & backing vocals).


This week, locals The New Giants joined me in the studio. Originally known as The Blue Giants, the band have been performing for around 25 years with their assured brand of classic rock mixed with country and blues influences. With a line-up change and revamp a few years ago, the band released an EP, Shine On, last year and have been gigging regularly since. The band will be joining us again in November for the Creative sessions. You can find out more and get in touch with the band by going to

PS Hi to Matt from the Dirty Royals who pointed out a mis-spelling on the page from the week they were on the show – Keith’s other band are indeed called The Glass Plastiks (rather than with an x!) – their website is
