Red Ball fans, you wished he was here – and now he is! Manchester based Stoner Rock band, Ten Foot Wizard, have today announced the stunning acquisition of David Gilmour to fulfill one of the Red Ball’s Winger/Lead Guitarist positions.

The board is said that such a landmark signing gives the team high hopes, with the club president stating that Gilmour on their side “could be the difference between us and them!”.

A renowned bender of the ball, Gilmour may use his slick trickery to meddle with the opposition and learn to fly the ball over the Blue Ball wall.

That said, some critics believe that after a major falling out with a teammate of a previous team, he may be joining the Reds more for the cash than anything else.

Gilmour was incensed when a journalist suggested this and his response was equally fiery. “Money!” he quipped, “Get away! Ummagumma run like hell and make the final cut! The issue with my former teammate was a momentary lapse of reason. I’d rather focus on what I contribute here – this should be one of the happiest days of our lives.”

The Red Balls will announce their next signing in September 2015.

Dan’s Notes:
This is what it’s all about. Grab yourself a drink of your choice, stop taking yourself and your life so seriously and rock out until your pants fall down. Manchester based Stoner Rock band Ten Foot Wizard represent everything good about rock music. Heavy riffs and an all or nothing attitude, without the pretentious grandstanding seen in so many others. Their new album “Sleeping Volcanoes” is a stellar release that expands on their already well established sound.

I walked away from the interview appreciating these fellas and their music so much more. They ticked the expected boxes: fun, slightly chaotic and full of life. Yet they also surprised me with some deep insights into the music industry and the world as a whole.

Heavy Glow are:

Adam – Guitar
Gary – Guitar/Vocals
Johnny – Drums/Mullet
Emlyn – Bass
