More Info

This gig will be a celebration of Tim Rundall's life and work.  Tim aka Slim Tim Slide was a great blues guitarist and songwriter, poet and journalist. He performed solo, was a virtuoso slide guitarist, sometimes busker and with his band Thee UnControllables (with Honkin' Stu and the late great Tony Green). 

 He ran the Pink Fairies fanzine UHCK (Uncle Harry's City Kids) and collaborated with the band to produce two tape releases (Silence Of The Hams & Son Of Ham) and two CDs (Son Of Ham extended version & Hogwatch) for subscribers.  

Tim had a wealth of knowledge on all things Rock n' Roll especially with the psyche scene, Bob Dylan, the counter culture, he later joined his hero Mick Farren & The Last Men Standing, (which became The Deviants, with Mick Farren reverting to his original band) having original members Pink Fairies Duncan 'Sandy' Sanderson and Russell Hunter along with later Pink Fairies Andy Colquhoun and Jaki Windmill in the line up. 

Tim was especially made up to perform with this line-up on the 'Spirit of 71' stage at Glastonbury Festival in 2011.  Tim also co-founded the Real Music Club in late 2004, with Judge Trev from Inner City Unit and Honkin' Stu. He later DJ'd with Jaki Windmill on the Real Music Club radio show (later to become The Subconscious Smoothy Bean Show) going out on Brighton and Hove Community Radio and Gonzo magazine. 

As well as playing gigs at the RMC he often compered the shows we put on.  Tim was a warm and colourful character, and undeniably mischievous. He loved his music and lived the Rock n' Roll life to the max. He is sorely missed by his friends and the Brighton and London scene and all of us at the Real Music Club.  

This gig will pay respect to Tim. The proceeds from this gig will go to The Compassionate Friends (TCF)  a charitable organisation of bereaved parents, siblings and grandparents dedicated to the support and care of other similarly bereaved family members who have suffered the death of a child or children of any age and from any cause. This charity was thoughtfully chosen by Tim's sister Lottie.  

The Southern Slamdoor Band (Tim's Tribute Blues Band )  A special blues ensemble featuring Honkin’ Stu on harp and vocals, Andy Power from Sumerian Kyngs on bass, Ryan Bollard from Column 258 on drums and Louise Maggs from Tex and the Lonestars on guitar, has been put together especially for Tim's memorial gig playing some classic blues.  The Southern Slamdoor Band have been formed especially for tonight by Stuart McKay, who started up the Real Music Club with Slim Tim and Judge Trev back in 2005!  Tim was a huge blues fan, so any gig remembering Tim would not be complete without a blues band!  Playing good time, foot tapping and dancing, Rhythm and Blues!!!  The band have enjoyed rehearsing so much, that they plan to stay together and continue after Tim's gig!  

+  Jaki Windmill  We welcome back Jaki Windmill, who also played with Tim as a duet. Jaki also presented her and Tim’s radio show on Brighton & Hove Community Radio (BHCR) called the The Sub Reality Sandwich Show.  

+  Monty Oxymoron  Keyboard player for punk legends The Damned for 25 years, having played at the Albert Hall, London Palladium and on their top 10 album Evil Spirits, Monty steps out for a rare solo outing. His past solo sets at the Real Music Club have included songs he has written for The Damned, songs from his solo albums and an eclectic mix of raps, comedy skits, satire, percussive pieces and just about anything Monty's marvellous musical brain can conjure up in the moment... if he can get a tune or a rhythm out of it he will!  

+  Dirty Scavenger  Dirty Scavenger spent her late teenage years living on the streets, scavenging for food using music, & developing her vocal, guitar & songwriting skills.  Dirty Scavenger's music is dark, raw, and full of angst. Influenced by Jo's many life experiences and by some of the greatest rock bands of all time, she writes songs with dark melodic guitar riffs and deep and meaningful, soulful lyrics, and conveys them with precision on the guitar and powerful raw vocals. Often described by many as mesmerizing to watch.  

Gregg McKella  Gregg will be opening the gig playing an eclectic mix of songs from his upcoming solo album he is presently recording.
