The full band line-up of Naevus will now not be appearing at the Dark Bombastic Evening 2nd Edition. There will be no further live appearances by this band, and Naevus has now effectively ceased to exist. The final vinyl and CD releases by Naevus will follow in 2011.
However, Lloyd James, the singer and principal songwriter of Naevus, will present instead a special set of acoustic versions of classic Naevus songs, along with a preview of new material that will appear on his forthcoming solo album, The Division of Labour. This performance will mark an important moment of transition and will showcase the intimate, acoustic side of Naevus material as well as indicating the future direction that Lloyd James will be pursuing in his solo career.
The event will unfold over two whole days, the 10th and the 11th of December 2010, in Kulturhaus, Bucharest.

It is the perfect opportunity to see this landmark and his team at work!
