Check with each venue regarding availability. Support at most dates comes from Help She Can't Swim; in London, DiS DJs will keep the masses entertained before and between bands. Why not come over and say hi. Or, better still, come over and say thanks for running this competition, and buy us some drinks!
What competition? This competition: we've a pair of tickets for each date - the London Barfly show aside - to give away, and all you have to do to be entered into the hat is answer this question:
Blood Brothers' new album is called Young Machetes, but David Bowie once wrote a song for Mott The Hoople about all the young what...?
C) Chartered Accountants?
Just send your answer to !COMPETITION CLOSED!, writing 'Blood Brothers comp, CITY' in the subject line. I.e., 'Blood Brothers comp, London', or 'Blood Brothers comp, Birmingham'. You get it, right? Right! Include a contact telephone number - winners were contacted on Friday January 12.
Young Machetes is out now through Wichita; it received the DiS seal of approval here.
