What do Liverpool, the Beatles, The Rutles and Nasty Habits have in common?
Well, John Lennon, of course.
The port town of Steveston is home to the popular band Nasty Habits which plays the club/pub circuit in the Lower Mainland. They are a Brit kicker band and proud of it.
Nasty Habits will be making a two-night stop in Ladner with shows on Friday, Dec. 21 and Saturday, Dec. 22 from 8 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. at the Ladner Legion.
Band leader Ron Cahill is from Liverpool and has that grit to his performance.
The Nasty Habits tag came from the movie The Rutles, a Monty Python parody of the Beatles and all that befell them.
Lennon’s character was the acerbic Ron Nasty, and Cahill’s penchant for getting songs right logically merged the names, and Nasty Habits was born. Cahill is only nasty when he’s on stage, however.
