One of our own PlanetMosh team joins Eye Licker!!

Planet Mosh’s very own Sty has joined Manchester Punk / Hardcore unit Eye Licker as their new bass player. He’ll be taking over the reigns from Rob, who is moving on to vocals to replace current vocalist Paul.

Paul has reluctantly made the very difficult decision to leave the band to concentrate more on family and work, and although this is a very sad time for Eye Licker considering the length of time Paul has been in the band, it also shows exciting times head with the new 2020 line-up.

Sty said, ‘To be a fan of a band and then join them is so special for me. I’ve smirked a few times in practise and thought to myself, This is Eye Licker, how ace is this!! Now I know how Chris “Izzy” Cole felt!!!’

The band will commence gigging with the new line-up in February, starting in Warrington on 22nd at The Royal Oak Branch. 2020 should prove to be a busy year for the band with dates in the North East, Scotland and possibly Poland again, together with another studio recording.

Listen to 2018’s release ‘Once More Into The Rabbit Hole’ on the video link above and read Sty’s review of the same album HERE.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
