It'll be fascinating to see how '60s Mod legends The Poets shape up in 2011 and I'm sure it'll be a total buzz to finally witness a live stampede by Lenny Helsing's The Wildebeests. How I've contrived not to see The Wildebeests before now is a mystery to me! I'm keen, too, to see The Higher State as singer Mole's former group The Embrooks are, to this day (along with The Dirtbombs, of course!), just about the best garage group I've seen in the flesh. One name that jumped out when I first saw the flier was Sally Skull. Can this possibly be the same group who released stuff on Slampt in the mid-90s? I hope so cos they were tops!. Very interesting. Tickets go on sale on May, 1st. Fab gear!
P.S. If anyone knows who sang the ace, bagpipe riddled "Highland Fling" (?) on the The Big Stramash's homepage, please leave a comment. Thanks!
