Stiff Little Fingers drummer Steve Grantley has a new video with his other band The Zed Hedz which they're premiering with Vive Le Rock!

In case you hadn't twigged, 'Poison Ivy Where Did You Go?' is a tribute to former Cramps guitarist Poison Ivy Rorschach on the occasion of her 70th birthday.

The song is the title track of a new 4-track EP, which Grantley says is "a shout-out to Poison Ivy just to let her know we miss her and wish her well.

“We consider Poison Ivy to be a true feminist rock'n'roll icon who has been criminally overlooked." he continues. "She co-founded the band, co-wrote their original material, played all the guitars and on numerous occasions, the bass as well. Ivy produced many of the bands records and it was all achieved whilst looking like a rock'n'roll Goddess both on and off the stage.”

Poison Ivy Where Did You Go? is out on 1 December through Hypermania Records.
