Tom Fairnie and The Snakes are essentially myself and Jane along with Mark Barnett, Kathy Stewart, Ken Kennedy, Karen Dietz and guest performers like Bernard Brogue and Kenny Vass. The name may or may not change as there seems to be a bit of concern over the image it presents but personally I like it. Besides having biblical, sexual and some low down mean implications it also has an association with medicine and healing and let's face it history has given the snake a pretty hard time...me, I believe in the power of redemption.
I would love to record as many songs as possible with this line-up and to do as many gigs as we can all manage. Our debut was at The Village last month when we played to a full house. Queens Hall here we come.
