Graham Oliver and Steve Dawson – both founder members of the legendary British Heavy Metal – Oliver/Dawson Saxon continue to rock audiences around the world with a blistering live set chock full of iconic rock anthems, from some of the most classic albums in metal history.
After Saxon, Graham and Steve formed Son of a Bitch (Saxon’s original name) and recorded the album ‘Victim You’ with another former Saxon alumni Pete Gill, guitarist Haydn Conway and vocalist Ted Bullit. John ‘Wardi’ Ward joined in 2000 along with another former Saxon drummer Nigel Durham.
In 2010 the band released the ‘Motorbiker’ album to great reviews, and features the live favourite ‘Whipping Boy’.
In 2011 Seventh Son vocalist Brian Shaughnessy joined, alongside Paul Oliver on drums and recorded the live album ‘Blood and Thunder’.
Now featuring Gav Coulson on lead guitar after Haydn’s departure in 2016, ODS are back writing new material for 2017 with a range of festival dates already booked throughout the year – catch them near you soon!
Born in the days of the New Wave of British Metal, GASKIN continue to fly the flag for homegrown Hard Rock and Heavy Metal.
Founder member and Lead guitarist/Songwriter and vocalist of 80s Heavy Rock band Sacrilege. Now back writing again and working on new material. In the 80s we played many venues such as the old Marquee in Wardour St. London, also played on the David Jensen show with U2 and the Stranglers. From the TV appearance followed a UK tour of smaller venues finishing with that Marquee gig. We always had a stage show no matter whether it was a pub, club or festival. Fans might remember the real Long dry grass we had all around the stage, the cobwebs over the drum kit,the explosions, dry ice and 4×12 cabinets with crosses and smoke pouring out of them (not the norm for a small Pub Gig!!).
Stopped playing for about 25 years but now back writing and playing “live” again with three great musicians in Neil Turnbull, Jeff Rolland and Paul Macnamara. See you very soon.
