Mark Gardener and Andy Bell of Ride are to make an appearance at a week of events organised by War Child next year. Passport Back To The Bars is scheduled to take place the same week as the Brit Awards (the last week in February) therefore making it likely to be their first live appearance together since the Ride reunion was announced last month.
Pete Fijalkowski (Adorable) and Terry Bickers (The House of Love) have announced a series of dates to coincide with the release of their debut album ‘Broken Heart Surgery’ on July 7th.
We’ve just created a page on Songdrop where you can now watch or listen to virtually every single released on Creation Records between 1983 and 2000. Some tracks are official videos, some are live performances and others are audio tracks covering the highs and lows of the label. Tracks are listed in order of catalogue number.
Christmas has come early this year, Swervedriver have announced their first new single in 15 years with a new album planned for 2014. The two track single is available NOW directly from the band as a download and features Mark Gardener of Ride on backing vocals.
A Facebook page has been set up for the 2CD reissue of the NME cassette C86. The album originally featured The Pastels, Primal Scream and The Bodines amongst others and is due for release in May 2014.
