Revived post-punk cult legends WASTED YOUTH play a very special headline show in London this week.
The East London band, who generated a huge following during their original brief late-70s/early-80 career, reconvened unexpectedly earlier this year, still featuring singer Ken Scott and guitarist Rocco Barker, to play a one-off date at London’s Lexington, which sold out in three hours. This was followed by another sold-out show at the same venue.
The band then joined The Psychedelic Furs on their UK dates, reprising their support role on the latter’s infamous 1981 Talk Talk Talk tour.
This Saturday 14 May, the band play The PowerHaus (formerly Dingwalls) in Camden, where they’ll be performing two sets – their classic debut album Wild And Wandering in its entirety, followed by singles and live favourites. With no further dates currently booked, the band have suggested this could be their last ever show.
“We’ve not accepted any future bookings and have actually turned some down,” say the band. “We have no future rehearsals arranged or tricks up our sleeve. We are going to review, assess and evaluate the past four months and announce our decision before July is upon us. What a trip it’s been, what a blast of a trip! Happy music for happy people indeed.”
