Ace London punk promoters Rockaway Beach get a jump on next year's 40th Anniversary celebrations by bringing together the 1978 line-up of THE VIBRATORS for a one-off London gig.
Featuring original members Knox, Eddie and John Ellis, by '78 the band were joined by bassist Gary Tibbs for their second album V2, produced by the legendary Vic Maile, which featured the bona fide hit single 'Automatic Lover', which reached the Top 40 in March of that yeah. Tibbs later went on to hold down the bottom end in ADAM & THE ANTS and ROXY MUSIC.
The Vibrators play Rockaway Beach at the iconic Hope & Anchor in Islington on Thursday 2 March. Support comes from current Vibrators guitarist DARRELL BATH and his band. All profits from the gig will go to the Rock'n'Roll Rescue charity. Tickets priced £10 are available here.
The Vibrators are set to release a new album Past, Present And Into The Future later this year. Featuring Knox, John, Eddie, Gary, Darrell and current Vibrators bassist Pete Honamaki, it's produced by original bassist Pat Collier. It's available to pre-order from their PledgeMusic page, along with various items of Vibrators merch and memorabilia.
