New Untouchables 13Th Anniversary Party 13/11/2010

Recommended Posts

We reported on the New Untouchable s website back in January the passing of one of our heroes and good friend Mike Evans bass player of the Action. Well sadly another one of our idols from the band lead singer Reg King died on Friday 8 October from cancer. Two members of our favourite band and much loved Mod group passing away in one year is a cruel blow.

A small group of fans managed to attend Reggie’s funeral on Tuesday 26 October in South London with just twelve hours notice for a wonderful service with ‘Since I Lost My Baby’ and ‘Shadows and Reflections’ both played at the beginning and end of the service.

I know there would have been many more fans who would like to have attended and paid their respects to both. We will pay tribute to both Mike and Reg on Sat 13 November at Charlotte Street Blues Club at our 13th anniversary party.

The Action will always be closely linked to our hearts and minds here at N.U H.Q. The Action played a pivotal role in our early days, between the first reformation shows in Ryde Theatre, IOW on August bank holiday 1998 to the last show at Modstock in 2004.

A few months ago a great band from Pompey got in touch by the name of ‘The Birdcage Set’ after the infamous Mod/R&B venue on the south coast which will always be synonymous with The Action after their legendary performance s and scooter escorts from the edge of town to the venue. The Birdcage Set naturally perform a number of Action songs including ‘Shadows and Reflections’, ‘Hey Sha-Lo-Ney’, ‘I’ll keep on holding on’ and ‘In My Lonely Room’ and will add a few more to the repertoire for this special occasion along with other Mod anthems.

Pete and Roger from the band will join us and we hope you can too.

A phenomenal night anticipated with our 13th anniversary and dj team taking the party into the wee hours with two rooms of the best music ever made and a chance to pay tribute to the amazing legacy of THE ‘Ultimate’ ACTION and raise a glass to Mike and Reggie.

Regards Rob Bailey
