MATT Parnell and James Olivier, guitarist and drummer with Inkus, have formed a new band, called The Moonjets.
The name is an anagram of Tom Jones, Inkus bassist until he was killed aged 17 by a hit-and-run driver in April last year.
The award-winning Ramsey band has not played since, except at a charity tribute for Tom at The George in Ramsey in October. Stranglers bassist, JJ Burnel stepped in to play Tom's part.
Now The Moonjets, with two more of Tom's friends, Matt Power on bass and Ian Woodward on guitar will make their hometown debut at There Goes Summer 2002 - a celebration of independent music, over the August bank holiday weekend.
They will be joined by two international bands, The Clerks from France, and AntiCage from the Czech republic as well as Cambridgeshire bands Linda's Nephew, After4, CharlieMore4, Badwell Ash, Equinox, An Dog, ACACIA and a solo acoustic guitar performance from John Pearce.
The gig is organised by FMS promotions who last year put on the charity memorial gig at Cambridge Corn Exchange in Tom's memory.
