How did Bedlam come about?
Bedlam rose from the ashes from another band called Aussie Kiss, we managed a few gigs before winding up but we did do
a memorable performance at Gosport Waterfront Festival, we had a depp singer and a depp bassist and only 2 hours for rehersal.
We managed to fit in 9 songs on the Saturday afternoon, It took 3 weeks to wipe the smile of my face after that.
The two Depps that stood in are now members of Bedlam.
