It is almost Valentine’s day and our beloved Slim Jim Phantom might not hit us with arrows but for sure he will do that with his sticks later in the year here in Europe.
Though the exact dates are yet to be announced, Slim Jim will appear at two festivals in late August or early September. One of them will take place in the southern French city of Tarbes and the other one will happen in Belgium, in a small city called Alleur, just outside Liege.
Stay tuned for more information!

On 26th December 2016 at a Seattle hotel, our friend Rajko Tolic was kind enough to sat down with BSO bass player Johnny “Spazz” Hatton and conduct an intervew for Stray Cats Collector’s.
I would like to thank both Johnny Hatton for taking the time answering to our questions and of course, to our middle men, Rajko. Without his mediation, this interview never would have happened.
