The Show – 5th June (and then Tuesday 8th) – Violets, Shapes, and some Punky Reggae…

Greetings from the show!

This week in fun show-land, Norwich 2-piece Violet Violet were the extra-special co-hosts ahead of their support slot with The Slits (words like legendry etc fit in here) at the Brudenell Social Club on the 3rd. There was much fun and giggling and Cheri&Fliss played 2 acoustic songs – both from their new EP entitled ‘Ebony and Ivory’ which will be out in July on NRone Records. You can view their ace (but slightly disturbing) video for their last single here -

The two acoustic tracks will be up on this here blog in the next few days…

The Show goes out at 6pm on Saturdays and is then repeated for further audio fun at 1pm on Tuesdays. Next week on The Show – The Return of Jen Fox, our continuing feature – ‘The Next Song We Play Will Be One We Found on a Table in BCB’, and a preview of Bradford Zine Fair.

Fun times :) xx

We then decamp to Reds, the smallest of the Butlins venues to see Viv Albertine’s Limerice who are excellent. Continue reading
