Out Of The Black & Into The Red…

It’s been a while since our last blog, but we have been busy at shabbey road getting some new songs rehearsed and spent a lot of time mixing tracks before we release them. No official date yet but once we are happy with them we will be getting them live! Next gig is our return to Percy’s in Whitchurch 16th September and it was an amazing gig last time out and looking forward to getting back there!

So until then here’s some proof of how busy we have been at Shabbey Road……

Review From The Robin 2

We are still busy writing and recording at Shabbey Road but here is a little review from our gig with the Sex Pissed Dolls at the Robin 2.

Here is our bit….

So we’re coming up to Christmas and what better way to celebrate than have five young ladies pounding out a mixture of punk classics and original songs. By the name you might be forgiven thinking that the Sex Pissed Dolls are just a bunch of girls playing at being a Sex Pistols tribute – but you’d be wrong, far wrong in fact. These girls can play, and they play very well indeed and despite the band’s name they play a totally mental mixture of good old fashioned punk classics mixed in with songs written by the band. All of which made for a mad night in Bilston.

Support on the night was provided by Purple Stereo, from just up the road in Willenhall, followed by The Bitten, from Wolverhampton.

Both bands brought their respective supporters along to swell the numbers and both supplied a mix of rock and punk delivered with much vim and vigour which was pretty bloody good.

Purple Stereo opened the proceedings with a set of half a dozen songs, all of which can be heard on Souncloud if you missed the gig or just fancy reminiscing. The band started with Dead Man’s Soul from the EP of the same name. The five songs that followed were all good, solid rock music that warmed the spirits on what was an otherwise dismal night outside. These lads have a very accomplished and likeable sound, nothing too extreme just good quality original music that’s easy to listen to. These are a band worth going to see if they play near you. The songs will all appear on their next album but not before they release their new single, I Said No, and supporting video which are in production right now. You can keep up with what the band are doing by visiting their website: www.purplestereo.com

A Badger! A Badger! My Kingdom for a Badger!

First of all to the hard core Purple Fans we are sorry for the lack of updates recently…we have had a lot been going on down Shabby Road recording wise.  We have managed to get a gig in at Percy’s in Whitchurch though which is a new venue for us courtesy of our good friend Mark P.  We will hopefully be back there in the not too distant future.  We have had a few setbacks with the recording but back on track now.  Shabbey road has moved up a flight of stairs and is now Shabbey Road III.  Looking forward to our Christmas gig at the Robin 2 with The Sex Pissed Dolls who are always flawless and always really genuine with us!  Please let us know if you need a ticket its Tuesday 20th December.


Watch this space for updates on some new music being released.


Keep it Purple!
