WASTED IN HACKNEY!
Following their unexpected return at the start of 2022, East End post-punk legends WASTED YOUTH play their final show of the year in Hackney next month.
Having returned with sell-out shows at The Lexington and The Powerhaus – the first of these selling out in just three hours – the band were honoured to tour with Psychedelic Furs – including a date as the prestigious Royal Albert Hall, reprising their support slot on that band’s Talk Talk Talk tour in 1981.
Wasted Youth memorabilia is also heavily featured in a new BBC drama Mayflies, based on the novel by award-winning author Andrew O’Hagan, which is currently being filmed.
The band have been writing and recording new material and will be announcing a new release later in the year.
Wasted Youth will be appearing at Oslo, Hackney on Saturday 1 October. Support comes from Black Doldrums with special guest DJ Gaye Advert. Tickets are on sale here.
