Reunited 80s garage-rockers THE PANDORAS arrive in London next week for their only UK date as part of a European tour.
They play The Shacklewell Arms, Dalston on Saturday 5 September with support from OH! GUNQUIT and THE FRANKLYS. Buy tickets from the Dirty Water website.
Part of the same Hollywood scene that spawned THE BANGLES, THE THREE O’CLOCK, THE RAIN PARADE and THE DREAM SYNDICATE, the band enjoyed a fluid line-up during their eight-year career, recording their debut album with BOMP! supremo Greg Shaw, and going on to sign with Restless, Rhino and Elektra. The band’s career was brought to a tragic halt, however, when frontwoman Paula Pierce died suddenly from a brain anyeurism.
Bassist Kim Shattuck, who went on to find success with THE MUFFS and PIXIES returns to fill Pierce’s role, alongside Melanie Vammen, Karen Blankfeld and new member Hilary Burton.
Listen to ‘That’s Your Way Out’.
