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.

Keep it Purple!!

Silence Of The Lambs… ish

After a great weekend at the The Robin 2 its time for our usual review!
As you know we supported the magnificent Sex Pissed Dolls ( The Dolls ) with another top band, The Bitten.
The bitten opened with a great selection of energetic punk rock, a perfect introduction to the evening and great guys to chat with after the show!
Then it was our turn, opening with Slave Within, followed by a few new numbers and our next single release, I Said No. We only played six songs as we refuse to do corporate 3 minute specials, and Crasher, our drummer, almost remembered them all!!! All our songs went down a storm, so thank you all, including the Robin, for your support!
Then the main act, although they’re no act, The Sex Pissed Dolls mean business! As usual they took the roof off within 30 seconds of coming on stage! Awesome musicians, their own original music is brilliant and i promise you all, they’re setting themselves up nicely for big things!


With that in mind, we’d like to wish all of The Dolls the best of luck for their journey, was a pleasure to support them again and, hopefully, when they play Wembley, they’ll remember us when they ask for support!!! (Wink wink!!)


We’re back at the Robin in a couple of months, but we’ll announce that in due course!


Keep it purple, Purps!!!

Fish eye anyone!?

So here’s our review of last nights events at the Robin2, trust me if you weren’t there, this will be a good read!!!We were on first, we had a good crowd considering the early slot and they were very receptive to our music! We’ve had some great feedback posted on our page which we always appreciate and we’re chuffed at the reaction to our new material… 

It was nice to see the Sex Pissed Dolls made the effort to stand and watch stage side too, much respect! 

So, a good start!

Second up were The SoapGirls, recently landed in the UK from Dubai, originally from South Africa and boy did they bring a stage show!!!

Serious attitude punk rockers, with an added twist of raw meat eating, fishes eye popping (no shit guys) and anything else that comes under the “pure debauchery” genre! (I may of just made that genre up!)

Backstage though, really cool chicks and a pleasure to (lick their raw) meet!

And finally the stars of the evening…

The Sex Pissed Dolls!!!!

For anybody who has not seen the dolls before, seriously, GO SEE EM! They are NOT just anothet covers/girl band, they ARE awesome!! 

All five of the Dolls are serious “serious” musicians, obviously with bags of experience and can work the crowd better than some of the major artists we’ve seen over the years! And again, backstage, really easy going and totally down to earth gals, with a real commitment to their music!

Matty had the pleasure of watching them from stage side with their manager for quite literally, a birds eye view, which he’s been very keen to bragg about since, so whoever let him up on stage, thanks (in a most sarcastic voice)!

All in all, what a cracking evening of music, fun, laughs and disgust, you had to be there and you really should be there next time any of the above gals are in town!!!

Welcome to our new followers, thank you for all the support, and anyone who spoke to us in person last night, from the crowd or from the backstage crew, it was great to meet you all!

Keep it purple, purps!

Tracey and the Tramp!

It’s been a good while since our last update, but we have been working hard on a brand new song and video.  We are hoping to have both ready for a single/EP/Video launch in the next few weeks. As soon as we have a release date we will post it up.  The video shoot is complete and is in the editing stage, and the music is down just needs mixing.  We are really excited about this release and can’t wait to get it online for everyone to have a listen and watch.  As usual we have done it ourselves with minimal equipment but we are proud of our efforts and are eager to get it released ASAP!

Our next show is at Old Leamingtonians Rugby Club, Leamington Spa on the 18th July.  It’s bike ride which finished at the rugby club, with plenty of bands playing in the evening. Conrad’s Ride is a biker/music event which to raise funds for Private Conrad Lewis who in February 2011 became the 353rd British soldier to be killed in Afghanistan.  The 353 is a charitable trust set up with the aim of helping members of the military community.  https://www.facebook.com/353conradsride

Keep it Purple!!
