Whats On

TV Smith / The Members / Mardi Gras Bombers

Friday, 1 July 2016 - 8:00pm

 

This amazing double-header header carries on our celebration of 40 Years of Punk Rock!

 

THE MEMBERS!

 

 

The Members have established a worldwide fan base by touring relentlessly from the early days. The Sound of the Suburbs is a massive worldwide post punk anthem. The track Working Girl was a huge USA MTV hit. 
 
 
Having conquered New Zealand and Australia in 2013 and uccessfully toured a new album The Members were ready for new challenges. In 2014 the band completed an amazing 30 date USA Tour (their First in 30 years) and are currently putting the finishing touches on a new album before gearing up for lots of shows in 2016 to celebrate 40 years of Punk Rock.
 
The Members current line-up includes three original band members, Nigel Bennett, JC Carroll and Chris Payne together with drummer Nick Cash.
 
TV SMITH!
 
 
TV Smith was founder member, singer and songwriter for The Adverts, who formed in the summer of 1976, and became one of the leading bands in the first wave of British punk rock. In early 1977, they performed regularly at the seminal Roxy Club in London, and gained cult success with the Stiff Records single One Chord Wonders. This turned to notoriety when their next release, Gary Gilmore's Eyes became a hit record, leading to frequent radio and TV appearances and extensive media interest.
 
 
A further single, No Time To Be 21, also entered the charts, and the band spent the rest of the year playing live, including major tours with The Damned and Iggy Pop. The album that followed in 1978, Crossing the Red Sea with the Adverts, is still considered a genuine classic, and appears in many Top Ten Punk Album lists.
 
 
Fiercely independent and determinedly embodying the original spirit of punk rock, TV continues to tour the world, bringing his epic solo show to ever-increasing audiences. Remarkably, TV plays his marathon concerts without a setlist and every performance contains a different selection of songs chosen on the night. He plays more than 100 gigs a year, and has recently performed in the USA, UK, Japan, Australia, South America, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Spain, Italy, France, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, the Czech Republic – and even Heligoland. Last year he played a six week European tour with the UK Subs.
 
MARDI GRAS BOMBERS!
 
 
One of the most underrated UK punk acts there is by our reckoning. You've seen them here with the Subumans and Vibrators; here they come to make this a triple header you'll never forget. 
 
Tickets for this great night are just £10 advance / £12 on the door.
