Local legends The Southmartins need no introduction. But in case you’ve been locked away behind closed doors for the last 18 months – oh wait?!
Here’s them in their own words… ‘We play songs by The Beautiful South and The Housemartins sometimes quite well. Paul Heaton says we’re “not too bad at all” apparently. We take that as high praise indeed. As you can see from our pics we’re not arsed about trying to look like the band and don’t do the “dressing up” thing. That’s fine for all the Freddies and Bongos out there just not for us. It doesn’t seem right. We just play the songs as if they were ours so we’re not afraid to play them fast and loose. If you want something that sounds like the CD then erm…buy the CD.’
This is a very intimate show for the band who sold out the Town Hall last time they played there. Our advice? Buy early!
