Summer gigs

by Ruth

We’re playing up and down the country (sort of) this summer…here’s where you can catch us!

On Saturday 29th June we’re playing Clit Rock at the Cowley Club in Brighton.

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.

Brief update on our next gig

by Ruth

The date has changed for our upcoming punk gig in Leamington – it will now take place on Friday 25th January.

All other details remain broadly the same (it should kick off around 7pm – we should be on first – it’s at the Zephyr Lounge). However, Snowy fans should note that our drummer will also be performing later in the night with one of his other bands – two-tone revivalists Old Raskals. That’s double servings of Snowy for a mere three pounds…

Whilst we’re at it with this update, you might be interested in seeing the pictures from Revolt we’ve finally got around to uploading!

“Punk is Not” – listen now!

by Ruth

We recorded a number of our songs at the weekend in Leamington’s Complete Sound Studio. You can hear (and download!) them for free at our Bandcamp page.


B/ull(s)hit and Rocksoc @ The Exchange!

by hippasus

Well that’s another two gigs played!

First up, the B/ull(s)hit conference. A send-up of academia, we put to the test Charles Gill’s suggestion that our songs would be better augmented by slides exploring their topics in greater detail. We’re indebted to Ellie Lincoln for the loan of her electronic drum kit, as well as the organisers and attendees of the conference for putting up with our bullshit!

What made the gig interesting from my point of view was the slight lag caused by running the drums through the speakers of the room. While Kirsty and Ruth had to focus on following the sound from the speakers rather than the noise from my sticks hitting the pads, I had to concentrate on ‘playing’ a split second ahead of where they were.

Next up was our gig on Friday at the Exchange. A little bit touch and go since feeling ill had left me housebound on the day we were supposed to practice for it! Seemed to go down well though, with Ruth improvising some crowd singalongs to our new song Pasties and Beer.

It was an awesomely experienced lineup, with both Subject To Change and Sacrament having a year’s gigging over us, as well as both Matt Shillito and Mike Snowden laying down some incredible acoustic numbers.

Friday was also the day when Rebekah Brooks gave evidence to the Leveson inquiry, including details about how close her relationship with David Cameron was. If you haven’t seen it yet, check out this story about their SMS conversations.

LOL, Snowy.
