Slim Chance The Phoenix Tapes

The Phoenix Tapes

STOP PRESS! The Phoenix Tapes are to be released as an album on Fishpool Records, distributed by Cargo, on May 14th. The Phoenix Tapes is a collection of 14 previously unreleased tracks recorded by the band since its reincarnation some 10 years ago. Originally posted as a series on Youtube in the last part of 2020, these recordings feature performances from many of the fine musicians who have played and sung with the band in the last decade, and also a brilliant contribution from Ronnie's trusted friend and collaborator, Pete Townshend.

A link for pre-ordering will be available from mid-April. Sign up to be added to the band's mailing list and best wishes to you all who have enjoyed the Phoenix Tapes in these difficult times. Stay tuned!


"The whole album is drenched in the rollicking joi de vivre that Lane himself channelled so adroitly. A spirit-raising triumph from start to finish."

Viva la Rock

"Much more than a nostalgic re-treading of past glories, this is rock'n'roll played as balm for the soul by a band of brothers"

Steve Hunt | fRoots

"On The Move sounds like music made with drinks in hand and wide smiles on faces"

Mark Blake | Mojo

"Their second LP is an aged-in-the wood delight. They've all done Ronnie proud"

Q magazine

"Original Chancers Steve Bingham, Charlie Hart and Steve Simpson convincingly recreate Ronnie's uniquely ruralised, soul-and-groove brand of folk-rock"


"Richly garnished by fiddles, bottleneck and accordion, the rejuvenated Slim Chance seem to be emerging with a rough-shod, rollicking sound of their own………..the party is already in full swing"
