Review by Peter Coates
Thirsty Merc are out on the road doing a string of dates under the ‘Back to the Grind’ banner, 6 months after the car crash which tragically resulted in the death of stage manager Shane Cooper, and put drummer Mick Skelton in hospital in a coma. Mick happily recovered from that and is back in the band, however decided to miss this date, to be replaced by Dragon skinsman Pete Drummond.

There is no better way for a hard working touring rock band to introduce their new single, The Grind from the Shifting Gears album, than with a national tour.
