LATEST NEWS - NEW TOUR DATE!


Good day everyone – or, as we say in the West Indian wing of Limehouse Towers, ‘Wha g’wan?’


 


Here is the news:


 


URGENT – BEACON COURT TAVERN, GILLINGHAM, 23rd OCTOBER:


Our BEACON COURT TAVERN date on the 23rd of this month is now to be rescheduled to THURSDAY 29TH JANUARY 2015, the reason being that we have been asked to extend our European jaunt to play a show at the Blue Devils venue in Arras, France on the same day. We’re really sorry for any inconvenience or disappointment caused, but please know that if you’ve already bought a ticket, it will remain valid for the rescheduled date. Obviously, we would much prefer that you did this but if you’re desperate for a refund, please contact us via the website (only for valid for tickets purchased from our site).


Full details of our Blue Devils Arras show can be found here:

Prior to this, this week’s casual-yet-highly-focused jaunt out will encompass what is becoming a Thursday club fave for us, the candidly-candid, confectionery monikered MARRS BAR in Worcester, named after the eponymous owner, er, Marzy! Gigs such as this are, by default, becoming a rarity. If Leamington Spa’s Assembly is the Kim Kardashian of venues, then this would be the Jodie Marsh; slim, lean and sinewy but full of raawk ‘n’ roll attitude and can still serve up the foaming jugs (Oi! Careful!), brimful of brew with the best of ‘em. We’ve previously had some up-close, fierced-up, so-right-they’re-wrong ‘uns here – expect no less, this time…


 


SWINDON ARTS CENTRE stalks Marzy’s gaff on Friday, after last years splendiferous debut. Rumours are that rock band and celeb snapper Marty Moffat will be back, trimming off fat, wiping out warts and generally beautifying the unbeautiful thru the eyes of his trusty Leicas. So…nails done, weave washed, Spanx strainin’, self-tan tonked, hire a Herve Leger bandage dress, borrow some Louboutins and try to sneak in at the edge of the stage for some photo action. And that’s just the advice to the band…


 


THE TACKEROO in Hednesford on the 16th falls in line with the Marrs Bar-type of venue and  has gotta be the Courtney Love of clubs gigs! A bit worn, a bit shaky but by god’s teeth, when wound up and pointed in the right direction can flash ‘em, mash ‘em and spit venom when riled! Between band and venue, we will seduce you, Lizzy-style…


 


Following on, the PICTUREDROME, Holmfirth needs no intro, an absolute fan-fave in this picturesque setting, with a long-awaited and anticipated return to the aptly-named GRAND in Clitheroe bringing up the, er, rear. This is a pretty much state-of-the-art facility, glossily done out with obviously much monies spent, a pleasure to both perform and spectate.


 


Wight on, baby…right after playing our Thursday fave, the Oxford O2 Academy on the 30th, we’re pleased to announce a long-awaited return to the Isle Of Wight at the MEDINA THEATRE on the last day of the month. We’ve had a steady stream of enquiries as to our return since the questions hanging over the fate of the Ryde Theatre, so this is extreeemely welcome news. We can rely on your support for our debut there, of course…?


 


We’re Stoked…and finally, speaking of new venues, here’s one for the Stoke massive, who are probably, like us, are still rueing the demise of the beloved Queens Hotel. Weep no more – JJ’s in Hanley is looking to launch a rock tribute night starting with Yours Truly on the 1st November, which will hopefully go a long way to re-establishing this fiercely rock-loyal town to it’s former swaggering musical status. Join us?


 


JAILBREAK TOUR 2015

Well, we’ve certainly hit the ground running on this, our second week back from the summer jolls. And, trust us, we’ve started as we mean to go on!

 

Old favourites are given that moniker cos that’s exactly what they are – reliable venues that work with the band to create great synergy, time after time. Add to that a bunch of crazy beautiful people (vis-a-vis YOU lot!) and voila, you have a pukkah night out! Hence,  Norwich Waterfront was its’ usual glorious Lynott cause celebre; the jewel on the south coast Hampshire coastline that remains the Wedgwood Rooms could only be described as elating – even after all these years – and ‘new kid’ Real Time Live in Chesterfield is fast becoming a staple on any jobbing band’s roster worth their g-string and felt beaters.

 

But surely, special mention must be reserved for the spectacle, the event that was the gig at the Conkers Amphitheatre in Moira, Leics on the 13th of this month (year of our lord etc). Remember the reconstitution…the amalgam…the molecular rebinding..the re-alloyed alliance that conjoined Yours Truly with LIVEWIRE/DC, the greatest AC/DC tribute outside of the titular artistes themselves to present You, our beloved audience with ‘FOR THOSE ABOUT TO ROCK’ parts I & II? Well, we once again reconstituted, amalgamated, coagulated etc, et al, to test-run, precurse and relaunch the gargantuan behemoth that will translate, transmute and transmogrify into:

 

‘FOR THOSE ABOUT TO ROCK 2015: JAILBREAK’ (taa-freakin’-daa!)

 

 JAILBREAK

 

Wayne and Ash about to rock…

 

Yup, it’s true, we are pleased and proud to announce the return of our favourite and most successful alliance for a tour that will run over March and April next year, taking in some of the countries best venues:

Even we wouldn’t be that vain as to label it the tribute event of the year but then again…show us one that promises to be even half as incendiary (and trust us, judging by the amount of pyro being stockpiled, something will burn!)? And it was you guys that asked for the return, so…THANK YOU!

Let there be pyro…

 

Worth a wink…

 

St Mary’s Social in Radcliffe, Lancs requested a gig from us, so we’re obliging them this Thursday 25th. A small, intimate affair always makes for a gritty performance, so if you really wanna see this outfit earn its’ two shillings. come on over! Limited ticket numbers on this one…Hessle Town Hall on the 26th is becoming an awesome annual gig for us, drawing on the Hull Lizzy following (the mighty Springhead from back in the day and latterly, Fruit), whilst the Blue Lounge in the Floral Pavilion Theatre in New Brighton continues to be a fantastic upgrade from the old Pacific Rd Arts Centre in Berrrrrkin’ead (that’s Birkenhead to you and me, squire!) on the 27th.

 

Our inaugural gig at The Grapes in Bury St Edmunds (2nd October) appears to be causing delightful controversy?! Many of those who attended our Norwich Waterfront gig earlier this month seemed to be making a beeline for the ticket office after first blinking at us in disbelief! Er…is there summink we should know here? Wot’evor – first come first served, that’s all we can tell ya…the Assembly in Leamington Spa (3/10) continues to be a fave rave – the Kim Kardashian of venues, it’s like playing in some kind of upmarket Bacchanalian blinged-out theatre! And the original trailer as used by Tammy Wynette (we kid you not!) in the changing room is unbefreakinlievable! Nottingham Rock City (4/10) should well and truly finish the job and see you off until our next cyberspace rendezvooo…

‘Til the next time….
