A tribute to 80's British Mod band The Risk is coming on Twist Records .

The Purple Hearts with support from Long Tall Shorty @ The 100 Club, Oxford Street, London. Sunday 21st June.

THE BITE / THE CUTE LEPERS "Blitzinformation EP" . 4 great melodic punk tracks by two of the best powerpop / punk 77 bands around.

With his first solo effort - Soul Vacation - Lukas SHERFEY (ex The Movement) show us his ability to combine Rock and Soul and references like Paul Weller and Elvis Costello. The album contains 11 strong tracks and if you dig the Mod thing and the new soul wave this album is definitely a must!

THE TWINKLES are looking for booking agency and promoters all over Europe. They 'd like to tour France, Spain, Germany and UK.

SOMETHING FIERCE "There're no answer"s - hot blast of punk powerpop influenced tracks on this new CD.

THE Q " Issues "' is the long awaited debut from this UK Mods from outta Gloucestershire.. This limited 10' vinyl EP features 4 songs that have a pure 79 mod revival sound inspired by bands like 'The Jam' and 'Secret Affair'. Produced by Vic Coppersmith-Heaven ( legendary former producer of 'The Jam', the 'Turning Japanese' single by 'The Vapors', etc ). And these guys provide much more than catchy Power Pop and Mod tunes. The Q leads by example in the song writing stakes, capturing that working class edge and displaying a keen social conscience, reminiscent of early Townsend or Weller.
Time For Action Rds

Gus Chambers passed away at the age of 52 on October 13, 2008. He was singer with the Coventry punk band SQUAD - having stepped into the shoes of Terry Hall who left to join the Specials.
