Lindisfarne - The Band

Did you know...Lindisfarne have enjoyed huge commercial and critical success. Their Christmas concerts were a legend (and having been to one I can testify personally to this!). Their 1971 'Fog On The Tyne' was the year's best selling album. After the sad death of Alan Hull, the band were never the same again. They retired gracefully in autumn 2003.

"Sitting in a sleazy snack bar sucking sickly sausage rolls, slipping down slowly, slipping down sideways, think I'll sign on the dole...
..The fog on the tyne is all mine all mine, the fog on the tyne is all mine "

ah yes I remember them well, such earth shattering lyrics rofl

OH i'd forgotten about them until Paul Gasgoigne massacred the song some years back. I really liked them.
