Click on the player above for Bugbear in conversation with Panic Brother Richard Morton at Soho Radio, with a swish set of tunes outta cinema and other screenage kicks plus plenty of other fab gear throughout from the likes of Motorhead, The Beatles, Amy Winehouse and The Homosexuals (who are playing The Dublin Castle Thursday 4th Dec now you come to mention it) But it’s Dec 5th at Moth Club, Hackney we find Rich and Reg….
Highly acclaimed singer songwriter Reg Meuross and Tin Pan Alley songsmith cum comedian and radio presenter Richard Morton are of course The Panic Brothers. 25 years on from the heyday of this high energy, close-harmony singing duo, Panic Brothers are back! 25 you say…well yes, but hold on…It was 30 years ago today, The Panics got on stage to play……it really is the 30th anniversary of the first ever Panic Brothers gig!
Reg and Rich have lost none of the musical and lyrical edge which established them as a formidable live act, first on the London pub circuit and then leading to five years of successful touring and TV work, with appearances at all the major British Festivals and also the comedy circuit.
They gigged widely in the UK and supported numerous and diverse stars such as Chuck Berry, Steve Earle, Roger McGuinn, Steve Marriott, Charlie Louvin, Flaco Jimenez, John Martyn, Richard Thompson and The Housemartins.
Tickets for this historic event still available here…
“Their combination of sharp,witty songs, tight harmonies and powerful acoustic guitars have gained them an enormous following”, John Conquest (Time Out)
And what’s the most kick ass, cerebral, ultra talented guitar band with triffic vocals and razor sharp songs doing the rounds? And why aren’t they huge? Dunno gov, you’d think BBC 6Music would be all over em like George Osbourne on Stevie Nicks’ glasstop table back in the as they sniff say day…but there ya go…In The Dublin Castle Friday 27th November, ladies and gentlefolk Damn Vandals…check out this superb ickle vid for their new single ‘I Hate School’…
And don’t forget for something of an iconic punk n roll nature Buggerbear will be hosting The Vibrators in The Dublin Castle also on the rather dizzying date of Saturday 5th December… too early to say Happy Christmas?
