"One evening in London on the recent European tour Walter and the band had to do the entire show without Sammy Avila on keys. Sammy's B3 had broken down and did not want to cooperate in time for the show to begin. It was an evening of tension for Walter at first: How was he going to get through an evening without his trusted sidekick? Well, it turned out that the mix of an enthusiastic London audience, and more ROOM FOR WALTER'S GUITAR was a powerful propellant, and Walter and his one-night-only power trio blew through a very inspired evening with more room for bass/guitar interplay and spontaneous errands into the land of "Hard Core Blues Rock".
So Walter decided to give this form of the band a small tour in the spring.
It was a liberating but also limiting experience to play as just three spontaneous blues rockers, but have no fear, there are no repeat -absolutely NO PLANS- to make this a permanent version of the Radicals. It is a chance to do a spontaneous hard core guitar driven evening of head banging balls out blues, not a permanent solution for the kind of music that Walter wants to play.
So anybody with the desire to experience the "hard core" trio will have a maybe once in a lifetime opportunity in March at the Boom Boom Club!!!
