Malcolm comes back to retire.

MALCOLM SWAIN, the lead guitarist with Coventry band The Swains, is to play his retirement gig - on the night of his comeback.

Swain, who has chalked up more than 3,000 shows spanning 30 years, has been out of action with a broken leg for six weeks.

His comeback and retirement gigs with The Swains come in the form of three nights in the city over Christmas - on Christmas Eve at Careys, and tonight and New Year's Eve at the Standard Triumph.

His brother, Martin Swain, who is also a member of the band, said it would be the end of an era.

He said: "Malcolm is hanging up his guitar after these gigs so they promise to be something quite special for all of us and our followers."

The Swains will continue, however, with Pete Cook from the band Mr Bridger, taking over on lead guitar.
