Rightyho, I have heard 100s of bands since I stumbled across myspace in late summer 2005 and none have had the immediacy or the long lasting appeal of Awful Sparks. Listen to their tunes and I dare you to not have a smile on your face. They are a breath of the freshest of air and I'm delighted to say that they are headlining The Good Ship this Thursday. They cite Steve Malkmus, Talking Heads and Minutemen which is all very nice but to me they bring to mind The Rakes and Madness which works miles better than it sounds.
Also playing are sewage punksters The Rank Deluxe who play a riotous live set and our 3rd set of London punkateers Soundbite who promise to stick pins up your posterior. Ooh.
All at The Good Ship this Thursday 5th January. Forget all those new years resolutions, they are for sheep anyway. This gig will be ace. Â£4 in with print out of this.
