New studio recordings…

by Ruth

…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.

Mapping My Journey

by Ruth

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.

Compilations!

by Ruth

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.

Further travels

Die WreckedWe’ve recently been booked for a couple of exciting gigs…

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.

Both of these gigs look set to be very special, so if you’re in the area you should definitely drop by.1236826_377026419066897_993719722_n

…and now for something completely different

by Ruth

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.

More grrrl bands than you can shake a spoon at

by Ruth

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.

Some music for you to listen to

by Ruth

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.

In which Not Right appear all over the place

by Ruth

Thanks to everyone who came to see us at Revolt – it was great to see so many people having a good time! We had some issues hearing ourselves on stage but apparently no-one noticed, which can only be a good thing. Apparently we sound like a proper band now and everything.

Talking of recent gigs, we’ve just put up some photos from Battle of the Bands. You can see them here.

Looking ahead to the future, we have many exciting gigs coming up. Here’s the ones we have confirmed at present:


Saturday 20th April
(Leamington Spa)
We’ll be playing brand new Leamington venue LAMP alongside pop-punkers Taxi Treats and blues rock band Handsome Devils Club. This looks likely to be our last gig on home turf for a little while plus we’ve got a nice long set with many, many (short) songs, so if you live locally you should totally come down to see us play. We might even play some new tunes we’ve been working on…
More details, tickets etc.

Friday 10th May (London)
We’re playing the wonderfully named National Minimum Rage at Power Lunches in Hackney. Shopping and Methodist Centre are also playing, there will be DJs from Power Queers and Cinnamon Buns, zine distros, and a screening of “She Said Boom”, a documentary about Canadian feminist punk pioneers Fifth Column.
Facebook event page.

Saturday 11th May (Birmingham)
Can’t make it to London? Well, we’ll be shuttling up to the Midlands the very next day to take part in a punk halfdayer at the Adam & Eve organised by Birmingham collective Punks Alive. There will be many awesome bands playing from 2pm onwards!
Facebook event page.

Saturday 29th June (Brighton)
A fundraiser for Daughters Of Eve: an organisation committed to preventing female genital mutilation. It’ll take place in the Cowley Club and there will be a whole host riot grrrlesque groups also playing. More details to follow – keep an eye the live page.

…aaaand finally for now, we’d like to plug the latest issue of the Alternative Female Voices Magazine – not only because it’s great (as usual) but because our song “Balls” is on the covermount CD!

Revolt #2

by Ruth

We’re playing Revolt on Saturday! It promises to be super-awesome and stuff. We’ll have copies of our latest zine, hopefully new t-shirts and other goodies. There’s a Facebook event page here and you can buy tickets here.
