We’re holding a launch party for Your Turn on the day the album is released – Saturday 11th October. The gig will be in the basement of Robbins’ Well, Leamington Spa. We’ve invited We Are A Communist, Deathsex Bloodbath and Huffy to share the stage with us.

There is a Facebook event page for the gig here.

So many gigs

by Ruth

Thanks to everyone who came down to see us play, read our zines and nab our CDs at Zephyr on Friday – it was an utterly brilliant night and we totally enjoyed every minute of it. Parataxis, Old Raskals, Deathsex Bloodbath, We Are A Communist and James from Tempest all deserve praise too for utterly stonking sets. We should do this again soon!

From the (recent) past to (near) future…we‘re now booked for four events in the coming months:

On Tuesday 5th February we’ll be playing in the Copper Rooms for the annual University of Warwick Battle of the Bands. This will be the second year we enter, and once again we’ll be going all-out for our 15-minute performance. Last year we caused a bit of a stir after unexpectedly getting into the semi-final – this year, who knows?

Thursday 21st February: from the University of Warwick to Coventry University – we’re down to play at Love Music Hate Homophobia at Hush nightclub. More details to follow!

Saturday 16th March will see the return of Revolt! A proper line-up announcement for Coventry’s DIY riot grrrl ruckus should follow soon.

…and on Friday 10th May we’ll be returning to London for a gig with National Minimum Rage in Hackney’s Power Lunches!

Full details (and updates, when we have them!) can be found on our live page.

New gigs for a new year

by Ruth

We’ve got a couple of gigs already confirmed for 2013…

The first will take place on Saturday 26th January in the Zephyr Lounge, Leamington Spa. We’re opening a punk night that will also feature performances from We Are A Communist, Deathsex Bloodbath and Parataxis.

We’re also going to be playing Revolt! again at Taylor John’s House in Coventry on Saturday 16th March – the first event was huge amounts of fun with some amazing bands, DJs and distros, and this second night promises to be at least as good again!

More details on these events will follow soon, and we’re also planning to enter the University of Warwick Battle of the Bands for a second year running – more on that when we have it!

Love Music Hate Homophobia

by Ruth

Our next gig is a fundraiser for Prism LGBTQ and Unite Against Fascism on Thursday 29th November, at the University of Warwick Students’ Union in Coventry.

We’ll be playing alongside atomic surf-rock group We Are A Communist, pop-rockers Jordan and the Sketcheads and, uh, Warwick Glee. There will also be some kind of performance or dance lesson type thing from Warwick Salsa, and DJs from Rocksoc. Who needs genre consistency?

Tickets will be on sale soon here.

Leamington gig tomorrow!

by Ruth

We’re playing the basement of Robbin’s Well again tomorrow, alongside the awesome Mongolian Death Worm, We Are A Communist and Matt Shillito. It’s been organised by Dan and Freja of Communist.

We leaped onto the bill for this one at the last minute for various personal reasons…but better a late announcement than no announcement!
