Miss Lancaster was left in a coma with serious head and face injuries and Died! Her Boyfriend Robert Maltby 21 was also left in a coma and bleeding on the brain but has recovered. It is understood the couple have been targeted in the past because of the way they looked and dressed. Five male youths have been charged with causing grevious bodily harm with intent.

Happy New Year Folks. There have been a few changes for Hotwired in the last few months as you can see the website has been revamped and a huge thanks to Wayne of the Beauchamps partnership for that. We shall be keeping it regularly updated so please feel free to pop back and see whats new. We've had a couple of line up changes, Groundsheet has left the band to pursue a career in alcohol, but as luck would have it we found a great new drummer, the introduction of tom to the band has given hotwired a much better sound even more improved by a welcomed return of Dale our original guitarist who also has his own band well worth checking out.Smeg has also quit the band and is concentrating on his music venue The Ferry Boat, Kings Street, Norwich we wish him all the best. Dave from The Nukes, Death Skulls and Highliners fame has joined us on vocals you can check out our new line up in Liverpool on the 2nd Feb check the gig page.
Hotwired have been doing various gigs recently locally and one in Wat ford, herts, which I will update soon on Smegs page. We have a gig coming up at the ferryboat, Norwich at the end of may, (punx picnic). Also one in Tel ford in July.
We are also doing a Eastern European Tour from the 3rd August this year
(see gig page for updates).
We are Recording an album and getting new merchandise out very soon, so keep watching this space!!!
Well at last I get our website running again. Have been busy in my life and server decides to disappear but I now hopefully back up and running gain. I have been managing a pub in Norwich for 7 months and now run my own pub The Ferryboat Inn, King street Norwich, 150 capacity venue, bands get in touch mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
Sorry about the lack of updates recently, it has been a quiet time for us due to myself (smeg)
suffering from a painful illness (ahhhh) and Sado moving into his new den of vice. However we will soon be back on the gig circuit in the new year, have some new songs in the pipeline, so any promoters out there please get in touch. On another note and again sorry it's a bit belated but Hotwired would like to congratulate Ex guitarist Andrew and his girlfriend Kim on the birth of their son Tyler on the Th October 2002.
Hotwired have decided after good practice sessions that we are going to
stay a five piece band for the near future. Smeg, Sado, Paul, Groundsheet and
Andy the roadie has joined band as backing singer .
We wish Andrew all the best for the future after leaving the
band due to personal commitments, good luck with the baby and your future
with Kim. There was no bad feelings when he left. We have a few gigs
in the pipeline, so keep an eye on the GIGS PAGE!!!!
To quash any rumors about Hotwired splitting up, Smeg did a disappearing act
after Hits Blackpool, he is back now sorry to say for some. Andy the guitarist
has decided to call it a day and we are auditioning for a new guitarist asap, or
a new drummer as Groundsheet thinks he's another Eric Clapton.
We have been messed about by the below record company and we are now
self releasing the 6 track CD, called Lullabys for pissheads, go to MERCHANDISE
page for details.........
We have been back to the studio and recorded 4 tracks to be released as
a 7" 4 track single with GUN [the Bard] DOWN record label. Clips of tracks

We are playing on the Sunday at Southend RD December on The Holidays

The whole band and a bunch of our mates and family have just returned
from Morecambe and saw many great bands at the Holidays in the Sun,
2001,Th Anniversary of Punk festival. To top of a fantastic weekend, we
also got a slot to play on the Sunday night at 7:PM, due to Vicious
Rumors canceling on the Saturday and we happened to be at the right place
and the right time. Thanx to the band The Rong'Uns for lending us all the gear
we needed, and look forward to appearing with them at Leicester in August.
