…are coming soon! Well, soonish. We have at least a couple of releases planned in the next few months, and will no doubt tell you all about them as soon as we’re ready to.
In the meantime, here’s a re-recorded version of This Revolution Is Not Complete to whet your musical appetite.
Some of the stuff we’ve made with Not Right over the past couple of years will feature in an exhibition in Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery from this weekend.
From Gender Matters:
This exhibition explores and celebrates the living memory and history of the transgender community in Birmingham and the West Midlands.
Through compelling sound, photos, video, artwork, poetry and artefacts, ‘Mapping my Journey’ brings to life the places, events and personal journeys – for some decisive and swift but for others spanning decades – which makeup the heritage of the West Midlands’ transgender community over the past sixty years.
These stories represent part of our community’s heritage and aim to capture, record and preserve unique individual experiences of being transgender.
Our songs have been included on a couple of brand new shiny compilations.
The first of these is Clarion Call, an international feminist punk album put together by American DIY label Stick-Shift Records. It features 17 great songs from bands based in the USA, the UK, New Zealand, Portugal, Brazil, France and Ireland. We’re totally hyped that “Balls” is on this great release! Digital copies are available for free (or a donation, if you prefer) from Bandcamp, and we’ll also have a handful of physical copies available at upcoming gigs.
You can also find us on Fun Switch, a collection of songs by bands who have played Coventry riot grrrl event Revolt in the past year. “Intersectionality Song” is included on this one, alongside a whole load of other great songs, many of them by awesome bands we’ve gigged with in the past few months. The download is totally free.
On Friday 11th October we’ll be heading up to Leicester to support Die Wrecked, who are holding a launch party for their new split 7″ with Indonesian hardcore fiends Krass Kepala. If you turn up to the gig you’ll get the record for free! Also playing are Repellent and Gunishment. The gig is in The Shed and will cost you a mere fiver to attend.
…and then on Saturday 30th November we’ll be playing at Ladiyfest Sheffield! The day is kicking off with an afternoon of workshops in the Quaker Meeting House, followed by live music and DJs in the Redhouse from 8pm.
We’re going to be playing a very special set on Friday 27th September to accompany a screening of indie rockumentary Anyone Can Play Guitar at LAMP. The film charts the shifting fortunes of bands from Oxford’s music scene, and we’ll be covering a handful of songs from featured acts.
The screening is a non-profit affair as part of Leamington Underground Cinema Festival. We totally support this kind of thing and so should you!
There are a very limited amount of tickets available, so make sure you get your hands on one if you want to come.
Dem Brum Fems Presents… POWer!
A fantastic evening of art, film, comedy and live music to celebrate creative female talent brought to you by Dem Brum Fems. This event is open to all.
If you are coming to UK Feminista’s Summer School 2013, this night is the perfect end to your Saturday and tickets are only £4 for Summer School attendees (standard entry £6).
It’s just a week until we play Queer We Go at the Wharf Chambers in Leeds! It’s going to be massively epic so if you happen to live in the right area of oop north, you need to come along.
We’re pencilled in to play at around 6:30pm, but these things don’t always run exactly to time and the entire line-up is incredible so make sure you get there early.
PLUS! We’re going to be playing LAMP in Leamington on Friday 2nd August. There haven’t been many details of this gig announced yet, but we’ll update the live page as soon as we know.
We’re playing up and down the country (sort of) this summer…here’s where you can catch us!
The gig will be a fundraiser for anti-FGM charity Daughters of Eve. Obviously this is a ridiculously important cause so if you’re in the area you should totally drop by.
There is also an awesome line-up of punky goodness, including furious socialist-feminist singer-songwriter Momma Swift, folky threesome Feralus, and the awesomely talented Cat Bear Tree, who we’re really looking forward to playing with again.
On Sunday 28th July we’re playing a queer/riot grrrl all-dayer at Wharf Chambers in Leeds. There is a MASSIVE line-up of AWESOME QUEER/GRRRL BANDS including Mancunian electro-punk legends (hooker), pop-punk/ska lovers Jesus & His Judgemental Father, and several totally cool groups who are flying over from the USA. It’s gonna blow your shit.
…aaaaaand finally (for now) on Saturday 17th August we’re gonna be playing for UK Feminista for their Summer School at The Lounge in Selly Oak, Birmingham. Basically, if you go to the Summer School (a weekend of feminist workshops) you can see us play! Hurrah.
We’ve been busily coming up with new shouty punk songs over the past few months and would like share them all with you. As such, we’re vaguely planning a second recording session this summer – watch this space for more details!
In the meanwhile, we’ve edited the RaW/Bandsoc recording of our Warwick Battle of the Bands set this year into a short live EP of sorts. You can download it for free from our Bandcamp page, along with our first studio recording, Punk Is Not.
Also! Our song Balls is featured on Cats Against Catcalling, the shiny new compilation of feminist music put together by the Riot Grrrl Berlin collective. You can download the whole thing (with nearly five hours of awesome music by 95 bands!) for free, along with previous compilations by Riot Grrrl Berlin.
