CRAVATS BRING THE BINS OUT!
Class of ’77 punks THE CRAVATS return this month with their first new album in 37 years.
Dustbin Of Sound follows on the from last year’s pair of singles ‘Jingo Bells’ and ‘Blurred’ and is the first album to feature the reconvened line-up of The Shend, Svor Naan, Joe 91, Rampton Garstang and Viscount Biscuits.
Formed in Redditch in ’77, The Cravats released several records on the legendary Small Wonder label, including the classic The Cravats In Toytown album. They split in 1982, spawning The Very Things. The Shend and Naan got together in 2009 to play Rebellion, and they’ve continued to perform since.
An expanded reissue of In Toytown appeared on CD in 2012.
Dustbin Of Sound is due for release on 29 September through Overground Records. It’s available to pre-order here.
