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

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!!!
