DESPERATE MEASURES ARE BLOOMING MARVELOUS!

Rejuvenated Kiwi rockers DESPERATE MEASURES have unveiled another new video from their forthcoming mini-album.

The brooding ‘Flowers At Your Door’ is the second single to be taken from the six-track Rinsed, and follows on from ‘The Rich-Tual’, revealing the diversity and complexities of the band’s sound. The video was directed, edited and shot by Craig Temple of Racketeer Pictures.

“’Flowers…’ was written after being stuck in pretty much self-isolation for three months on last year’s first lockdown as a relationship went down the pan,” explains band founder and frontman Eugene Butcher. “It was a lonely time for a lot of people and this song was born out of all that.”

Formed on the thriving Christchurch scene in 1981, Desperate Measures burned briefly but brightly in their original incarnation, performing at the infamous Golden Showers festival and being handpicked to play an aftershow party for The Clash before releasing the now highly sought-after 1984 EP.

Retooled and revitalised four decades later, Butcher leads a new London-based line-up featuring guitarist Gaff (Glitterati, Rich Ragany & The Digressions), bassist Ricky McGuire (The Men They Couldn’t Hang, UK Subs) and drummer James Sherry (K-Line, Done Lying Down).

‘Flowers At Your Door’ is available now from Spotify, Apple and Bandcamp.

Out on 6 August through Easy Action, Rinsed is available to pre-order here.

Desperate Measure play a special album launch at The Hope & Anchor on 30 July with support from Knox from The Vibrators and The Backstreet Abortions – tickets

They then play HRH Punk at Sheffield O2 Academy on 3 October – tickets – before heading out on tour with THE PROFESSIONALS. Full dates…

DATSUNS PUT PEDAL TO METAL!

Kiwi rockers THE DATSUNS have announced the release of their own limited edition guitar pedal in celebration of the release of their recent new album.

The Eye To Eye shares its name with the album – the band’s first in seven years – and is an all-analogue phaser, hand built by guitarist Christian’s London-based boutique effects company Magnetic Effects.

“The Eye To Eye is a 4 stage OTA-based phaser capable of many shades of phase including slow and swirly though to fast and intense,” they say. “Each Eye To Eye pedal is hand built by Christian in London, England.”

Check out the Eye To Eye and the full range of Magnetic Effects here.

The band have just released ‘Dehumanise’, the third single to be taken from the album, accompanied by a video shot by renowned film director Sam Kristofski. Says bassist and singer Dolf Datsun, “‘Dehumanise’ is another Sci-Fi inspired number, about being literally stripped down to your utilitarian parts by the machines and machinations around you. The main parts were written on tour, opening for Graveyard in Europe some years back. I was listening to a ton of heavy 70’s rarities at the time, sampling their drum intros in Garageband to make demos. This one features more custom fuzz guitar FX courtesy of Christian and also my first attempt at a synth solo, wild!”

Eye To Eye is available here.

YORKSHIRE’S BURNING!

Fast-rising Yorkshire rockabilly and roots roustabouts THE BURNER BAND have a new video which they’re premiering with Vive Le Rock!

‘Blues Came In’ is the first single to be taken from the Leeds outfit’s debut album Signs And Wonders, which is due out in September.

Singer/guitarist Lewis Burner has been treading the boards for a while, with the likes of Bob Log III, The Legendary Shack Shakers and at the Strummercamp festival, releasing two solo albums before hooking up with singer and double-bassist Ian.

On Signs And Wonders they mix bluegrass and rock’n’roll with a punk attitude and lyrics that reflect on everything from mental health issues to the dedication shown by the people of Liverpool in eradicating the Sun newspaper from its environs.

“This is a song we wrote together about living dangerously and then getting walloped by the blues,” says Lewis about the video. “We filmed it in the Rodley Social Club because I really like pubs and this is one where I grew up in Leeds. Plus, they let us, so thanks! It would have been much funnier and better had we had more talent available. The telecaster you hear was £250,000 but came with a free house.”

Due out on 3 September through Shed Load Records, Signs And Wonders is available to pre-order and vinyl here and on CD and download here.

The Burner Band head out on a tour this Autumn with fellow Yorkshireman, renowned singer/guitarist/skater Serious Sam Barrett, kicking off with a joint album launch show at Leeds’ Brudenell Social club on 17 September – tickets. Before that they have a handful of dates on their own. Full dates are…

Sun 1 Aug – Deer Shed Festival, Thirsk
Sat 28 Aug – Caroline Club, Shipley (afternoon, Lewis solo)
Sun 29 Aug – Preston *
Fri 3 Sept – Calder Vale Hotel, Horbury*

LET’S HAVE A PARTY!

Yorkshire post-punks PARTY DAY are to have their complete works made available on CD for the first time ever.

Formed near Barnsley in 1981, the band’s proximity to both Leeds and Sheffield meant they were ideally placed to involve themselves in both cities’ developing post-punk and goth scenes, while they made an instant impact nationally with their first two singles ‘Row The Boat Ashore’ and ‘The Spider’ being picked up for airplay by John Peel. These were followed in 1985 by their debut album Glasshouse and a year later by Simplicty, each earning rave reviews in the music weeklies.

The two-CD Sorted! anthology comprises both albums and singles, plus the 4-track Glasshouse EP, along with compilation tracks and unreleased material. The set is completed by a 20-page booklet, including rare photographs and contemporary reviews. The sleeve design replicates the Glasshouse EP artwork which has achieved peak goth by being selected for the Victoria & Albert Museum’s Prints and Drawings collection.

The two-CD edition of Sorted! is released on 24 September through Optic Nerve Recordings and is available to pre-order here. A gatefold double coloured vinyl edition comprising Glasshouse and Simplicity without the extra tracks will be available later in the year.

WEREWOLVES ON THE PROWL!

The world’s number one CRAMPS tribute band TEENAGE WEREWOLVES return to the UK next month. Having been postponed three times already, thanks to the lifting of pandemic restrictions, the shows finally look set to go ahead.

Following on from their explosive 2019 tour, the band planned a speedy return, lining up a 13-date tour for 2020. Frontman Jack Atlantis and showgirl Kitten de Ville were two days away from boarding a flight for London to start the tour when the first airport closures started at the beginning of the pandemic. Left with no choice, Jack and his tour manager Gary, cancelled all dates.

Over the course of 14 months, they started over from scratch and re-booked, then cancelled, three complete tours. That’s 40 booked then cancelled venues, 90 hotel rooms and 85 poster designs. Months of lost time which equates to substantial financial and personal loss they will never get back. To add insult to injury, the band were forced to make two member changes: lead guitarist and drummer, plus two different rock’n’roll show-girls.

“The Delta variant looked like it would surely end a fourth Teenage Werewolves tour,” sighs Jack. “When Boris Johnson recently announced 100% re-opening, we were caught off guard and have been racing to get up to speed as our and our opening act SHE’S IN BAUHAUS’s dates loom closer. . . As of today, this project is clinging by its claws (pun intended), so success of this 2021 tour is crucial for us to continue in the United Kingdom.”

Kicking off in Grimsby on 12 August, the Stay Sick Tour winds through to Brighton Green Door Store on 23 August, taking in a London show at the legendary 100 Club on 20 August. Full dates are…

12 AUG – GRIMSBY Docks Academy – tickets
13 AUG – LEEDS The Warehouse Leeds – tickets
14 AUG – NEWCASTLE The Cluny – tickets
15 AUG – STOCKTON The Georgian Theatre, Stockton – tickets
16 AUG – MANCHESTER Factory Manchester – tickets
17 AUG – LIVERPOOL Jimmy’s Liverpool – tickets
18 AUG – WOLVERHAMPTON The Slade Rooms – tickets
19 AUG – BRISTOL The Fleece Bristol – tickets
20 AUG – LONDON The 100 Club – tickets
21 AUG – DERBY The Hairy Dog – tickets
22 AUG – SOUTHAMPTON The Joiners – tickets
23 AUG – BRIGHTON The Green Door Store – tickets

GUN CLUB SONG INSPIRES VIDEO

THE GUN CLUB’s ‘John Hardy’ has been immortalised in a new CGI video.

The song, which featured on the legendary band’s 1982 album Miami album, produced by Blondie’s Chris Stein, soundtracks the animated video created by Paris-based CG artists Laurent Mercier and Cédric Bernard of Callicore Productions and was co-produced by Jacqui Pierce, sister of Gun Club mainman Jeffrey Lee Pierce.

A traditional song, ‘John Hardy’ is based on the true story of a 19th Century railwaymen who killed someone in a drunken dispute during a craps game near Keystone, West Virginia and was later hanged for the murder.

Miami was one of two major label album releases for the band, released through Stein’s Animal imprint of Chrysalis Records and followed two years later by Las Vegas Story.

PROFESSIONALS ADD DATES!

THE PROFESSIONALS have announced a string of summer dates ahead of the release of their new album.

The Pretty Vaccinated Tour will comprise five UK shows at the end of August, including the band’s appearance at the Stone Valley Festival near Newark on 28 August.

The dates are in addition to the band’s already announced October tour with DESPERATE MEASURES in support of their new album SNAFU, which is out on 24 September.

“Getting out to there to play and see you lovely people has seemed like an unrealistic fantasy for too long,” they say. “Our fingers are crossed for our album launch tour this October. Please don’t let it go tits up again! So, in the meantime, our marvellous agent has managed to grab us a string of gigs around a festival show on the Saturday. Yes, they’re not our usual haunts, we had to avoid October locations, but we truly can’t wait to make some noise and get amongst the people. We’ve been working on the new album. That’s kept us sane through mad times. You’ll get to hear it in October. Before then though, let’s get together to blow away the cobwebs of covid.”

Full tour dates are…

COLD STARES VIDEO EXCLUSIVE!

Indiana blues duo THE COLD STARES have a new lyric video which they’re premiering exclusively with Vive Le Rock!

‘Prosecution Blues’ is the third single to be lifted from their forthcoming fifth album Heavy Shoes, which follows on from 2019’s Ways.

Guitarist/singer Chris Tapp says, “‘Prosecution Blues’ was an opportunity to tip our hat to some of our heavy blues influences.” But he’s not just talking about music…

“I’m writing from the point of Edgar Allan Poe and William Faulkner. It needs to have weight to it,” he explains. “There’s not really anything that bothers me to talk about. When you don’t allow yourself to be human and say what’s happened to you, then you make other people that are going through tough shit think that they’re alone.”

Their first album for Mascot Records, Heavy Shoes was recorded at Sam Phillips Recording Studio in Nashville – “We did our Ways album there, so it very much felt like a continuation of that. So, it was familiar and pretty much the same cast of characters,” says drummer Brian Mullins – and later mixed by Mark Needham (Taj Mahal, Chris Isaak) and mastered by NYC mastering legend Andy VanDette (The Almighty, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion).

Set for release on 13 August, Heavy Shoes is available to pre-order here.

PUNK COMES TO BLACKPOOL AFTER ALL!

With Rebellion postponed again until 2022, following the Government’s decision to lift Covid restrictions on 19 July, the festival’s organisers have pulled out all the stops to bring fans a special one-day event.

Taking place in Blackpool’s Empress Ballroom on 7 August, which would’ve been the Saturday of the original event, HITS 25 will celebrate 25 years since the Holidays In The Sun festival – Rebellion’s precursor – first took place.

Acts lined up to appear include COCK SPARRER, COCKNEY REJECTS, UK SUBS, GBH, THE BARSTOOL PREACHERS, DIRT BOX DISCO, MAID OF ACE, GIMP FIST, FIRE EXIT, DEATH TRAILS and MILLE MANDERS AND THE SHUTUP.

There’ll also be an ‘almost acoustic’ stage featuring TV SMITH, ATTILA THE STOCKBROKER, STEVE DREWETT of NEWTOWN NEUROTICS and others.

The Winter Gardens will also have free admission from Thursday 5th to Sunday 8th for punks to meet up and hang out.

Ticketwise the event is completely separate to the main Rebellion event, and tickets originally issued for 2020 and 2021 will be rolled over for the festival’s return in 2022.

Tickets for HITS 25 priced £21.50 are available here.

DANGEREENS TAKE THE PITH!

Canadian sleaze-monkeys DANGEREENS have signed to Golden Robot and release their first single for them later this month.

The Montreal quintet turned heads with the excellent self-titled 5-track EP back in 2018 and released their debut full-length Tough Luck, from which the new single ‘Streets Of Doom’ is taken, last year through Germany’s Alien Snatch label.

Fusing junkshop glam, Thunders punk and 50s rock’n’roll, they’ve toured all over their homeland, making it as far down as Boston and NYC. Who knows when they’ll make it to this side of the pond.

‘Streets Of Doom’ is available to stream/download here.

If you’re looking for something to watch, try ‘Blacklight City’ from their debut EP…

LOWE AND SCABIES REUNITED!

Rat Scabies has been reunited with producer Nick Lowe for the first time since the recording of The Damned’s classic debut album in 1976.

Lowe produced the band’s debut single ‘New Rose’ followed by the album Damned Damned Damned, widely accepted as the first ever UK punk single and album.

The pair came together last weekend on a session by The Spammed, the charity band that Scabies plays in alongside Specials bassist Horace Panter, musician and actor Micko Westmoreland, ex-Banshees and Specimen guitarist Jon Klein, Terry Edwards of Gallon Drunk and NJE fame and comic actor Kevin Eldon.

Lowe was called in to produce the band on a version of his own classic song ‘(What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace, Love And Understanding’, which first appeared as a single by Lowe’s pub-rock pioneers Brinsley Schwarz in 1974.

With recording taking place at Dire Straits guitarist Mark Knopfler’s British Grove Studio – with studio time generously donated by Knopfler for the purpose – the track will feature on Viva -Songs Of Freedom, a new compilation released in the New Year by the Specialized Project, to raise funds for the Teenage Cancer Trust.

“I suppose I have never been able to afford working with Nick since”, quipped Scabies.

On recording the song, Lowe commented, “It’s a good song which has been covered so many times over the years, I now scarcely feel I had anything to do with it. I was flattered to be invited and very pleased for an opportunity to get out of the house and spend time in the stimulating company of similarly under-employed musicians.”

FUTURAMA POSTPONED

Thanks to the ongoing doubt around the scheduling of live music events, the organisers of the Vive Le Rock-sponsored FUTURAMA festival have taken the difficult decision to postpone the event until Easter 2022.

The much-vaunted return of the semi-legendary 80s post-punk event, featuring Heaven 17 (pictured), Spear Of Destiny, A Certain Ratio, Peter Hook & The Light, The Chameleons and many more, had initially been scheduled to take place in April this year, but ongoing restrictions forced organisers to move it to September. With doubts rife across the industry over the wisdom of the Government’s decision to free the nation from restrictions on 19 July, the decision was taken to move it once again to the weekend of 16-17 April 2012.

The organisers state, “We apologise for the inconvenience but the increasing COVID infection rate, plus the latest delay in lifting restrictions without the necessary assurances and guidance from the Government, has made it impossible to put the festival on this year. It’s the news that many expected but few wanted, but it did become obvious during the long dark months of lock down that even if a green light was given on June 21st, people would still be hesitant and rightly so. Despite the government saying July the 19th, we know people have changed and it will take a little time to restore confidence and feel secure inside indoor events.

“More than anything, we want Futurama to be free of all restrictions. We want it to be a celebration of freedom, we want people to be able to fully immerse themselves in the festival and to be able to wander around all our great venues, watching bands, eating & drinking, without having to worry about safety precautions. That’s what a festival is all about; having a great time, interacting with music fans and we don’t think we can produce that special atmosphere this year. We are all longing for Futurama to return and we can wholeheartedly promise to deliver the greatest post punk festival this country has seen in over four decades.

“Most bands have reconfirmed for next year and the ones that can’t make it will be replaced by just as good bands as we have been inundated with acts to play the festival. The good news is we’re happy to confirm that tickets for this year’s festival will automatically be rolled over to 2022. So next year’s festival is secured, and no further action is required! If you’re not able to join us in 2022, you’ll be able to claim a face value refund on all tickets. We’re working closely with our ticketing partners, and they will be in touch with instructions on the next steps within 7 days. Thank you again for your continued support. For now, keep safe, keep healthy and look after each other. The Futurama Team.”

UNDERSTANDING RON

RON S PENO, former frontman with Aussie legends DIED PRETTY, has announced a new album with his latest band THE SUPERSTITIONS.

Do The Understanding is the band’s fourth album, and is in prestigious company, two of its predecessors having previous been longlisted for the Australian Music Prize.

The new album follows on from the band’s 2017 release Guiding Light and comes after an enforced lay-off brought about by thankfully successful treatment for oesophageal cancer followed by the Covid pandemic. Looking on the bright side, Peno was able to return to the stage earlier this year for shows with the reunited Died Pretty.

A veteran of such seminal bands as the Frozen Stiffs, Hellcats and The 31st, Peno was a fleeting founder member of legendary Brisbane band the Screaming Tribesmen, before throwing in his lot in ’83 with Died Pretty, recording one of THE greatest Australian debut albums of all time in Free Dirt, before going overground with a series of mainstream-chart-bothering albums during the 90s. Peno has gone on to work on various other projects, including three albums with the duo The Darling Downs alongside Kim Salmon of The Scientists.

Formed in 2009, The Superstitions see Peno joined by guitarist Cam Butler, drummer Mark Dawson, keyboard-player Tim Deane and bassist Andy Papadopoulos.

Set for release on 26 July, Do The Understanding is available to pre-order on CD, vinyl and download from Bandcamp, with immediate access to two tracks ‘The Strangest Feeling’ and ‘Everything Has Changed’.

The Scientists are featured and reviewed in the latest edition of Vive Le Rock!

CALL Ms LEE…

Rising Portuguese songstress STARSHA LEE has a new video out which she’s premiering exclusively with Vive Le Rock!

‘Killing Heteronomy’ is taken from a new EP which is due for release later in the Summer and is described as “a post-Duchamp exercise of nihilism”.

Now based in London, the intriguingly enigmatic Starsha doesn’t give a great deal away about herself, but her new band features guitarist Crispin Gray from Queenadreena.

Look out for a feature on Queenadreena in the next issue of Vive Le Rock out 27 July.

FUTURE GAMES!

CAPTAIN FUTURE, alias Alex McGowan from The Future Shape Of Sound and producer of The Urban Voodoo Machine, has a new video which he’s premiering exclusively with Vive Le Rock!

‘Zombie Lover’ is the second single to be taken from the Captain’s debut album Ghostman. It follows on from the debut single ‘Holy Waters’ which came out in January.

The album is the result of the enforced downtime brought about the Covid pandemic which brought a halt to the day-to-day proceedings at McGowan’s Space Eko East studio, allowing the multi-instrumentalist to progress in peaceful isolation on Ghostman.

As ‘Zombie Lover’ indicates, the album steers away from the rambunctious gypsy sounds of the UVM and the testifying soul of the TFSOS in favour of the downtempo dubby blues and trip-hop beats McGowan has honed down the years through his collaborations with the likes of Jah Wobble, Tricky and Martina Topley-bird.

Ghostman is out this Friday 9 July on Gypsy Hotel Records. Captain Future plays an album launch show with The Urban Voodoo Machine’s Paul-Ronney Angel at Elektrowerks, Islington, London on 15 July. Tickets are available here.
