Click on Bugbear’s hairy legs above for our latest Soho Radio show….This episode of The Sunday Sync features guests King Schascha from The Beat (Dave Wakeling’s version, AKA The English Beat, on tour in the UK now) dark dance pop baritone supreme Alexander Price (as featured in the excellent new movie Doris), baggy beat pioneers and marvelous Hendrix channellers Beautiful People’s Du Kane and one Barrie Masters…. So Do Anything You Wanna Do, but make sure you have a listen….and make sure you get down to The Dublin Castle Friday 30th September….Class of 76 are a punk/ new wave super group, unique in the fact that all four members have enjoyed huge success in Eddie and the Hotrods, Johnny Thunders, The Members and Wilko Johnson band. Between them they have sold millions of records . Barrie Masters ex Hot Rods and other punk era luminaries, what’s not to love? Middle age depression? Never!
Headline Maniac also perform…this is the brand new side project from current Eddie and the Hotrods members Simon, Dipster and Chris. Their debut album has been receiving outstanding reviews and huge amounts of airplay in both UK and USA. Also this nite Fat Prezident- up and at em sensational, severe and savage Croatian hardcore poooonkers. This is admirable stuff full of U.S ’80s punk vim and ’70s ramalama rocknroll.
You’d have to have Eddie and the Hot Rods down as one of THE singularly most under rated acts ever to come outta the UK….Exhibit 1…..Kicking immense amounts of ass on The Old Grey Whistle Test in 1978….
