Payin' Dues: Slim Chance
Ronnie Lane’s old playmates pay homage while pushing forward
Slim Chance have just issued On The Move, their second album since reforming in 2010. While the group’s founder and frontman Ronnie Lane, who passed away in 1997, can never be replaced, the reconfigured line-up – featuring original members Charlie Hart, Steve Simpson and Steve Bingham – pay fine tribute, while also looking forward.
“The brief was to record an album very much in the spirit of Ronnie Lane with some of his classic songs,” says Bingham. “But we also wanted to record original material to showcase the talents contained within the band now.”
