Welcome to this site which is dedicated to two of the greatest bands in rock history, Yardbirds and Downliners Sect. On this site we will give you some interesting news about the bands and also some news about former band members. As this site is located in Sweden, we may not always be the first with the hottest news about the Yardbirds and the Sect but we have some really good information sources who will help us to get the information necessary for this site.
A new guestbook has been creeated since the old one simply ceased to exist. The new guestbook can be found at:
