You wait 30 years for a gig by local prog-rockers Stallion and then two come along within the space of 9 months.
We wrote about Stallion here at Pierless Music back in August of last year, just before their comeback gig at the Big Green Cardigan Festival: http://pierlessmusic.co.uk/stallion-ride-again/
I was lucky enough to be at that gig and very good it was too. Obviously Stallion themselves must have enjoyed it as well, as they return for another gig this Friday, 11th April at The Carlisle, in Hastings.

So, if you missed, or were unable to attend, that comeback gig, this time it’s all happening rather closer to home. It’s free entry too.
Keyboard player Phil Thornton told Pierless Music, “To play in Hastings again, the bands hometown, is a dream long overdue. It will indeed be a special occasion”. I’m sure many of the bands fans from back in the 1970′s feel the same way.
If you don’t know Stallion, or maybe you’re a bit too young to remember them first time around, here’s a video shot at that Big Green Cardigan Festival gig last year:
Friday’s gig is being billed as a one-off event once again. But I’m told that the gig is being both recorded and filmed, which rather suggests that Stallion mean business and that more gigs are on the cards. I have also been reliably informed that the band are even writing new material together.
I’m sure all of this is very welcome news to Stallion’s many fans from yesterday. And who knows, after Friday’s gig maybe there will some new converts?
Here’s the Stallion line-up for the upcoming gig:
Julian Carter – Vocals and Guitar Phil Thornton – Keyboards John Petri – Guitar Phil Gill – Bass Guitar Miles Gill – Drums
