Thursday 13th April 2006, one for your diaries. What a fun show we have lined up...
Dollsquad are coming all the way from Melbourne to kickstart their European tour at Kilburn's The Good Ship. Ably supported by the sensational The Epitones and The Shake.
Check out their site and I dare you to find anyone with better photography, costumes or band dolls. Double dare you. And then there are the tunes...
"...they flaunt Buzzcockian kicks, Shangri-Las vocal shimmers, hot urge and a sassy pride Bikini Kill would kill for...kinda if The Runaways met Nikki & The Corvettes at a Crystals show... sweet doo-punk-pop"
A proper band with a fine lineage through The Kinks, The Jam and Supergrass. Ace melodies, singalong choruses, you'll know you've been at a gig.
"The Epitones are a four piece band based in North London, with soulful British invasion and punk tones...wowing audiences with their mix of songwriting ability, aggressive vocal energy, biting guitar, growling bass and pounding drums. This is a band on the rise, gaining more momentum with each live performance."
If these lot don't make you feel young and alive you are already dead. A great group with a stand out singer; the quote below says it all.
"..like a 60s garage band stealing the lead singer of a Motown girl band..."
Tickets are just a fiver, or Â£4 in advance. The night will start at 8pm and as all 3 bands take some of the best of the 60s after we will have Jimmy B and Kid Kandez playing Motown, Northern Soul, 60s RnB and garage, girl groups, ska and doo wop until 2am.
1 minute walk from Brondesbury BR, 5 minutes walk from Kilburn on the Jubilee tube line.
