8th Small Faces Convention 2004

12th September 2004, Ruskin Arms, East London.

A windy day but many made the annual trek to East Ham and to the "home" of the Small Faces, the Ruskin Arms. Problems with the PA made it a difficult Convention although the sound team managed to have things working although the sound was not the usual quality and the return of the Threadz to the Ruskin Arms was marred by very poor sound.

Following last year's promising Convention debut, Boss were eagerly anticipated and did not disappoint. The highlight of the set was a superb rendition of Humble Pie's 30 Days in the Hole. Small World, fresh from opening the Ronnie Lane Memorial, were the best I have yet seen them. 17Black were as good as ever and backed the evening's two guest stars, Clem Clempson and Chris Farlowe. Clempson, who replaced Peter Frampton in Humble Pie, joined on guitar and sang lead vocals on Natural Born Bugie. Chris Farlowe made his first Small Faces Convention appearance and sang All or Nothing and Tin Soldier.
