Lots of updates.

Gee, have I ever been a lazy boy. So, Kerrang! magazine is out NOW with a nice review of The Crimea in. It’s in the Live Reviews section, and there’s a nice big picture of Davey and Andy, while they’re given 4 out of 5 for the reviewed gig at Dublin Castle on October 1st 2002. It really is a great review, so get a copy now, it’ll be in shops until this Friday. If you miss it, click here to see the article.
Tina Mcclelland has finally uploaded her pictures of The Crimea to her site at They were taken at the Black Lion in Salford on September 16th 2002 where the band were performing for the ITC Unsigned event. There’s a large review of the gig in the reviews section, and a small review of the same gig at the Honk – Welsh Music On-Line site. Click here for that review, or click on [More].
Lucifer’s been shipping out copies of ‘Woman’ magazine to a few lucky crox fans. Included is a very intresting article on Owen and his girlfriend taking part in an ‘I Love You, But I Don’t Love That’ section involving certain items of clothing owened by the two. I’ve had orders not to reveal it, but if you can get ahold of the September 9th issue of the magazine, offer as much as you can. It’s worth it.
Last of the updates is that Owen’s emailed me about dates when they tour the country to support their new single release. As expected, they’re only playing the Barfly venues so far. Currently there’s five gigs that should be happening, and possibly another in late November. Keep checking the gigs page as I get more details on each show.

Review from Honk – Welsh Music On-Line site by James McLaren.

The last night brings the return of one of Welsh music?s most enigmatic performers: Davey ?Crockett?. Of course, now that The Crocketts are no longer a going concern, he must have changed his name to Davey Crimea. Davey and Owen as The Crimea are a complete surprise after the aural and visual smack in the face of The Crocketts; they?re quiet and defined, a step towards Sugar-era Bob Mould rock balladeering rather than punk metal. Davey has retained his magnetic charisma, however.
