John Rossall’s Glitter Band + The Priscillasb + DJs We Got Killers
This is John Rossall’s glorious Glitterband. Up until very recently it was also fellow original stack heeled pioneer Harvey Ellison‘s Glitterband. Harvey played the distinctive sax that was such a key part of the band’s sound, but sadly passed away since we arranged this show. So tonight is a celebration of Harvey Ellison and the amazing run of superb 1970s defining hit singles he helped make so very wonderful. And what a primal, mold breaking, magnificent pop noise they made in their 1970s heyday…check the record… Rock And Roll Part 2, Angel Face, Just For you…loads of ace numbers…so here’s a reet treat for you all. Let’s Get Together Again! With excellent support in the form of The Priscillas- long standing all girl trash n garage/punk n roll London institution with proper ballsy tood to the fore. Kerrang said it adroitly – ‘The Cramps, The Shangri Las and New York Dolls all rolled into one’… A perfect start to a brilliant party. DJs We Got Killers- Keep the Party throbbing til the wee wee hours…The Glitterbeat, Northern Soul, punk classics, ’60s shimmy, exotica and beats to die for. Party ignition assured.
