[b]SEVEN[/b] is incredibly proud to present a night of laughs and brilliant musicianship with [b]ADRIAN EDMONDSON and THE BAD SHEPHERDS![/b]
[b]Saturday May 23rd[/b]
SEVEN, 6 Ilkeston Road, Canning Circus, Nottingham, NG7 3GE
"The Bad Shepherds play punk songs on folk instruments. Not as a gag, but because we really like the noise. We think the songs are better than people remember. We love folk instruments. It works.
We do songs by The Sex Pistols, The Clash, The Stranglers The Jam, Sham 69, The Undertones, Talking Heads, Squeeze and others, even Kraftwerk! Alright, they're not all punk, but they come from roughly the same era.
We've mostly given the songs a kind of Celtic feel, and we've stuck in the odd reel and jig here and there. But occassionally we just thrash! I've always thought the excitement of a reel taking off is the nearest thing to the excitement of watching punk live in the 70's."
