Our Classic NWOBHM Column: Made in England 5 - Bashful Alley "Running Blind"!
10/23/2014 2:25:05 PM by Frank H.

The oddly named Bashful Alley came about when Staffordshire natives Rob Tidd (guitar) and Ian “Truff” Threlfall (bass) decided to form a band while studying at Lancaster University. While both had prior experience with small bands in the late 70’s, it would take the vocal ability of Dave Slamen and Donkey behind the drum kit to solidify the very first Bashful Alley line up. Yes, they found a drummer named Donkey. More from Josh Greer on Bashful Alley here…[Full Column Link]
