THE ERICS EXPERIENCE CONTINUES
.


after hours of discussions and arguments within the band and management we have decided to expand the whole 'erics experience'
.
this will include amongst other things ;

.
free pies to anyone who dances
(all meat, no vegans, sorry)
a gig bonus scheme, which means that if you attend three gigs in a row (and get your card stamped) you get to sleep with a member of the band
a full half time erotic dancer
(see pic of paul practicing below)
.

if we get more than three encores LITTLE SEXY DAVE will perform his legandary Joe Pesci doing al pacino doing danny devito doing robert deniro doing his 'are you looking at me' bit
.

sams halftime tips on how to keep looking young
.

and BIG SEXY DAVES money making ideas

,

see you at the CROSS KEYS MORLEY
sat 10th feb

pretty vacant
.
the erics band have always been known
in the pubs of the greater yorkshire area for pushing back the boundaries of taste and fashion
,
and so for the start of a new year, with a new member (ooer!) and new songs, we the band thought it would be good to drop the old image of sex god chic and go for an altogether more modern appearance
.
SAM decided that the first thing he would do this year was lose over half a stone on the F plan diet ( the one where you eat as much as you want and it all just falls out of your eFFin' arse)
. then BIG SEXY DAVE also decided that it was about time that he got rid of some weight and tried to lose three stone of ugly fat, but after paul told him that he needed his head to wear hats, breathe and survive he decided against decapitation and instead went for an intensive regime of healthy eating which includes salad with everything. bit of a bugger really as it goes all soggy in the pan with the bacon, egg, sausage and mushrooms
.
LITTLE SEXY DAVE, not to be left out decided that it was time to come to terms with his height issues and the fact that glam was dead by ditching his trademark silver platform boots
.PAUL also had an unexpected weight loss of just over half a stone during a rather intricate bedroom manoeuvre when one of his piles burst, paul by the way made a full recovery, but the curtains were ruined
.
so all in all you, our adoring public are in for a real treat when you next see us
.
and ladies, be prepared and ensure that you bring a supply of double gusset panties
.
JUST IN CASE!!
.

MOJO AT THE NEW INN CHURWELL THIS SATURDAY 20TH


Hey up, there, I've already said it. First gig of the year of any description, time to blow the cobwebs off and get down and boogie. For those who remember, we played our very first gig here on 28th April last year. We had an enjoyable night once the nerves had settled down, but we've upped the anti a lot since that first skin of the teeth experience, with 20 odd gigs (some of them very odd), new songs and a lot more polish I hope!

Looking forward to seeing you there if you can make it. Dave?

Only kidding... ;)>

OLD DOGS - NEW TRICKS
. no , we aint talking about a new series of band of gold
we are referring to the age old quote by one of the great philosophers of our times , i think it was either hippo-crates or george formby
.
THE OLD DOGS
. being us , a group of well versed , well groomed and well hung
(two out of three aint bad)
SEX GODS of the first degree
.
NEW TRICKS
. being the learning of new material
we are hpoing to get a good 6 to 8 new songs polished off and in the set by march , unfotunatley the gremlins have already struck ,with sams stomach exploding last week meaning that our week long session at abbey road was a no go as he needed a break by the sea to get his stegnth back
.
all the songs we have in mind should fit in well and hopefully become new faves , but we are always looking for new ideas , so if you have any suggestions of songs you want us to do just leave them in the comments bit below , or if you're all myspaced up (do it today) leave them on our comments bit there

MOJO AT THE LION THIS SATURDAY 13TH IS CANCELLED
.
Hey up again, due to the aforementioned stomach bug, we've had to cancel Saturday nights gig at the Lion in Cas. Real bummer, but hopefully we'll be back on track for the New Inn on Saturday the 20th January.

Sorry chaps!

SAM'S ON THE BLOG AGAIN!
.

No, it's not a reference to my f****** stomach bug, just to say that I have been continuing my blog on a myspace. You can still click on the link at the side and it will redirect you, but anyone who has tried to look recently will have noticed that it hasn't been updated since March! Over the past f****** week I've had little else to do other than work on my new(ish) site. Oh and whinge. But then you'd guessed that.

Check it out anyway, if you so desire!

HERE WE GO AGAIN
. yes indeed, here we do go again, very wise words from the diminutive lass from Preston with the humungous top bollox
not to be mixed up with HERE I GO AGAIN which in itself was a worthy offering from the perma tanned and also perma permed mr cock rock (here’s a song for ya!) coverdale
.
yes indeedy , here we do go again with the gigging and the swigging , the gagging and the shagging , the tarting and the farting and the keeebabs
.

everyone at eric towers hopes you all had a propper crimbo and a noisy new year
and we are really looking forward to seeing you all at the CROSS KEYS MORLEY for our first gig of the year on sat 10th feb

i know this seems like a big break, but we have given ourselves a month and a bit off to sort out a load of new material
.

no gain without pain

.
so, til next time we will leave you with the words and wisdom of another of Prestons greats
.
RUBY
DON’T TAKE YOUR LOVE TO TOWN

.


the erics office has been inundated with calls from the samaritans an other various helplines (netto direct and jelly babies collectors UK to name just two) over the xmas period after they recieved a record number of people in emotional turmoil over the little sexy dave situation and we thought it was about time that we laid peoples fears to rest
.
the rumours that big sexy dave is no more were sort of true as he is now known by his official title of

.
LORD BIG SEXY OF THE DAVE
