The Claim Reunion
At last! Medway legends The Claim are to release a retrospective CD called Black Path on September 28th 2009.

To mark the occasion, they played their first gig since 1992 at the Royal Function Rooms in Rochester on September 19th, and it was rammed. unfortunately, some latecomers had to be turned away at the door.

The band were excellent and so were the support acts; Rew Oates from Wheels, a couple of chaps I didn't know and wordsmith Vic Templar.

I'm a huge fan of the Claim, and this gig made me feel 18 again (sort of), reminding me of days long gone, when my band The Drunken Popes used to support them.

Cheers guys!

UPDATE: The Claim played a second reunion gig with The Dentists at Dingwalls in Camden on 23/03/10, and I've added my photos of that gig to this set.
