I set up a Poole/Bournemouth based band in 2010 fronted by Lewis Hawkins – visit http://www.thesoundofthesuburbs.com/LewisSingsTheSoundOfTheSuburbs.htm

Lewis calls his own one-man act the Sound of the Suburbs and has renamed the band accordingly. Now that I've moved to Scotland I am looking to revive the Skaramangas name and put together a mainly ska band, but every band member will be treated equally and will get to play his fave music.

I was at the London International Ska Festival in April and 29 years after first getting involved with a ska band it would be fair to say that Skaramangas Mk 2 will do very well. Gigs will not be a problem.

I started managing my mates’ band in 1982, amazingly it’s still going! http://www.myspace.com/thehotknives Over the years I’ve managed another 6 bands, used to be a pub landlord and I'm looking at buying another pub in the autumn.

We’ve got a great name and image for the band and a T-shirt that’ll sell a million! Phone me or email me your number and I’ll tell you all about it.

It's a clean sheet, but if it came down to it I might sing. It's a bit gruff, but it works.
