This tape was handed to me by my friend Jon Thurlow. I had never heard of The Occasional Tables before, but what a mighty recording it is. The band featured the late B.B. Floyd and Local musician/producer Lee Bates. Although recorded in 1991 still sounds fresh and exciting two decades later.
Jon says ” Occasional Tables are one of my favourite attic bands. BB Floyd formed Occasional Tables after leaving Chron Gen, and alongside Lee Bates, developed a strong creative song writing partnership. Floyd’s tense riffs and sideways lyrics counterbalanced Lee’s pop sensibilities perfectly and live, the band’s nailed down rhythm section set free Floyds whirring SG through its vintage VOX – The band were great and Floyd is nothing less than a metal sex god.
