BACK WITH A BANG‽

Agit-post-punk trio INTERROBANG‽ head out on tour next week in support of their long-awaited debut album.

The Leeds and Brighton based band, featuring Dunstan Bruce and Harry Hamer from CHUMBAWAMBA and Stephen Griffin from REGULAR FRIES, are to release the self-titled album on Friday 30 March through All The Madmen Records. It’s available to pre-order here.

Speaking exclusively to Vive Le Rock, Bruce explains, “Kicking up a righteous agit-punk-funkstorm; it’s motorik, pulsating and intense. We reject wholeheartedly the idea of nostalgia, we want to create something that is current and relevant; something that speaks to our generation who grew up in the shadow of punk, with hopes and dreams. What happened to that spark? How do we express that anger now? Deep in my 50-something blues this veers from the personal to the political, from the poignant to the pithy with short, sharp and urgent rapid-fire assaults this is an uplifting and inspiring album’s worth of hard hitting songs for hard hit people. This is our cri de couer!”

BONNEVILLES EXCLUSIVE TRACK PREMIERE!

Northern Irish garage-blues duo THE BONNEVILLES are today premiering a brand new track exclusively with Vive Le Rock!

‘Don’t Curse The Darkness’ is from the Lurgan pair’s new studio album Dirty Photographs, which is out this Friday 16 March through Alive Naturalsound. It’s available as a CD, download limited edition vinyl and t-shirt bundle here.

Says guitarist/singer Andrew McGibbon Jr, “I love this song, one of my favourite Bonnevilles tracks. This song has taken about 10 years to write, believe it or not. One of the million jobs I’ve had in my life, I delivered and removed pianos. After the last economic crash in 2008 I was sent to this guy’s house in the country to remove his piano. He had lost absolutely everything to the banks but the one thing he wouldn’t let go was the piano. We took the piano from his very nice house, which he had just given up and took them into town. He was such a lovely guy, very chipper, especially considering what he was going through, so I asked him why he seemed to be okay with everything that was happening to him and he said back to me, ‘Don’t curse the darkness, light a candle.’ That blew me away. I wrote it down in my notebook. A few years later I wrote the song and we played it out a few times. We even recorded it for our last album (Arrow Pierce My Heart) but the recording didn’t do the song justice, so I pulled it. We rearranged it a bit and tried again on these sessions and it turned out great, I would never allow a crap version of it to go out as I always felt the song has the potential to be meaningful to someone. It might end up being ‘that’ song for some soul out there that needs it.

“We dedicated it to our friend Audrey Extraordinary Fraser, she was in the room the first time we played it at a gig in Montrose in Scotland. She was going through some difficult stuff at the time and it made her cry. We took that as a good sign.”

The Bonnevilles tour mainland Europe this April, before returning to the UK to play Red Rooster Festival, Euston, Suffolk on 31 May and Mandela Hall, Belfast on 15 June.

PROFESSIONALS HEAD UP VIVE AWARDS!

More names have been added to the Vive Le Rock Awards which is shaping up to be the rock’n’roll event of the year!

One of the bands confirmed to perform on the night will be post-Sex Pistols legends THE PROFESSIONAS, who returned last year with a critically-acclaimed new album (voted ‘Album Of The Year’ by Vive Le Rock last December) and have been thrilling audiences with their high-octane rock n’roll ever since.

“I can’t wait for this!,” exclaimed frontman Tom Spencer. “I’ve already put a big black cross the day after in my diary. It’s gonna be loud, proud and messy”.

“Viva Le Rock? Didn’t I see that on a t-shirt somewhere?” remarked ex-Pistols drummer Paul Cook. “Who’d have thought, 40 years later it’s the awards to be at!”

If anyone truly deserves an award, it’s U.K. Subs frontman Charlie Harper, who exudes the true spirit of a lifetime in rock n’ roll more than any other. He’ll be picking up his King Rocker/Icon Award, a prize truly deserving for a man that was ‘born a rocker…’

“It’s a good excuse for a free drink,” confessed Charlie. “I can’t wait for the awards party. It will be great to meet up with so many old friends. Let’s hope it’s supported really well and see you all there. ”

“It’s a great honour to be holding the First Annual Vive Le Rock Awards and saluting the legends who ruled the world but often get overlooked when it comes to acknowledging their greatness,” stated publisher Eugene Butcher. “We’re planning a lot of surprises for a wild night where the audience, the bands, the winners and presenters can come together as one to rock the O2 Islington Academy like it’s never been rocked before! ”

Held over the two rooms of the O2 Islington Academy (main room and the smaller room – acting as the V.I.P/photo room/aftershow party), 300 carefully invited guests and 200 paying punters will witness a sensational show with unique collaboration’s and 11 awards given away by famous presenters and our compere.

The Awards will be hosted by GINGER WILDHEART, alongside awards presenters Steve Diggle from the BUZZCOCKS and the biggest selling singles artist of the 80s, SHAKIN STEVENS.

Former frontman of punk legends THE ADVERTS, TV Smith, is also confirmed to play live with many more live performers and presenters to be announced yet. Are you ready to Vive Le Rock?

GANG OF FOUR GET LUCKY!

GANG OF FOUR return with their first new material in three years.

‘Lucky’ is the first song to be revealed from a new EP entitled Complicit, which is set for release on Friday 13 April.

The new track captures producer and founding member Andy Gill advancing his writing partnership with frontman John ‘Gaoler’ Sterry, aided by the production nous of Ben Hillier (Blur, Depeche Mode). Gill’s instantly indentifiable guitar shards and Gaoler’s urgent vocals are underpinned by bassist Thomas McNiece and drummer Tobias Humble’s aggressive and unrelentingly funky groove.

Speaking about ‘Lucky’, Gill says, “This track itself is a product of chance. I’d been watching a serious debate on one of those financial news channels – six white men in suits arguing about the stock markets – and it set me thinking about how limited luck can be. America’s demented ringmaster-clown claims to have bestowed fortune on the markets. He believes himself the master of luck. In reality, they are casinos. A lot of trading is anyway now done by algorithms to try to eliminate the element of chance, but luck isn’t capable of fundamentally changing the system. Even if you believe market crashes are the result of bad luck rather than layer upon layer of human and machine error, the system shudders, restarts and goes on as before.”

Formed in Leeds amid punk’s first flowering in 1977, Gang Of Four unashamedly grabbed the red hot poker of funk, inadvertently writing the rulebook for post-punk with their game-changing debut Entertainment! in ’79. Existing in various forms into the noughties, the departure of original singer Jon King allowed Gill to rebuild the band from the ground up, releasing the acclaimed What Happens Next in 2015.

MIRACULOUS MULE HOST HACKNEY HOEDOWN!

MIRACULOUS MULE return next week with a special garage-blues extravaganza in East London.

The trio’s most recent album Two Tonne Testimony was a standout release of 2017, making Vive Le Rock‘s Top 10 albums of the year, and they recently tore the roof of the legendary 100 Club while opening for BOG BOY BLOATER.

The band are already plotting their follow-up release with new material being broken in at live shows during the year. The first of these is set to take place at hip clothes shop-cum-venue, Paper Dress Vintage, Hackney Central, on Friday 9 March.

Check out ‘Shave ‘Em Dry’.

Joining Miraculous Mule on the night are long-serving South Coast punk rock blues practitioners MUDLOW, who are preparing for the release of their restrospective compilation Waiting For The Tide To Rise, due out in April.

Check out ‘Mad Mary Lou’.

Opening the night are happening  duo J.D. HANGOVER – featuring members of legendary Italian punk-blues maestros STIV CANTARELLI & THE SILENT STRANGERS – whose harsh Delta blues channels SUICIDE by way of an ancient Bentley Rhythm Ace drum machine.

Check out ‘Mr Williamson’.

Throughout the night and afterwards, DJs from Stag-o-Lee Records will be manning the decks.

 

“We’re hoping to get our next album recorded before the end of the year and we’re using upcoming London shows to try out new songs,” says Miraculous Mule’s Michael J Sheehy. “It always adds a little spice as does having a great opening band and we’ve got two at Paper Dress. Too often we’ve found ourselves playing with bands with egos and bad attitudes which far outweigh their ability, passion or tunes, Mudlow and JD Hangover are exceptional, both bands know how to bring it and will light a fire under Miraculous Mule’s arse so expect a night of full on mutated rocking fiery garage blues!”

Tickets for the show, priced at a very reasonable £5, are available here.

TABLE SCRAPS REVEAL NEW VIDEO!

Fast-rising garage-rockers TABLE SCRAPS have unveiled a brand new video.

‘I’m A Failure’ is the lead track from their just released debut album Autonomy, which is already picking up rave reviews, including a hefty 9-out-of-10 from Vive Le Rock!

Speaking about the video, the Brummie trio say, “We had wanted to make a video that affectionately referenced channel surfing for ages and inspiration struck when, as always, we realised we had no money. We did have cheap wood and socks, though: it was all we needed to put together a loving homage to Beavis and Butt-Head, the golden years of MTV and the amazing/terrible music videos of our youth.”

The band are taking the album to the masses with a bunch of shows this week, including a FREE London show at The Shacklewell Arms in Dalston this Wednesday. Full dates are….

Feb 28 – London, The Shacklewell Arms
Mar 1 – Bournemouth, 60 Million Postcards
Mar 2 – Birmingham, Hare & Hounds Kings Heath
Mar 3 – Bristol, The Trap

Released through Zen Ten Records, Autonomy is available on vinyl, CD and download from tablescrapsband.com.
