Welcome to a twee-pop-punk-a-go-go-spectacular!
We finish up the season at Retro in Malmö with a night celebrating the Vaselines and Beat Happening, two of our all time favourite bands who, on a summer night in London 1988, shared a stage and instruments and taught the anoraks how to rock'n'roll. This gig in turn ended up on an amazing and extremely rare split cassette put out on Calvin Johnsons own K records in 1991. Cover drawn by Aggi from some Scottish band called the Pastels.
We'll play all the tracks off the cassette and many more Vaselines and Beat Happening favourites and mix it up with C86, Twee, Indiepop, Soul and Girl-groups.
So come on down for a night that will make you feel like waking up in the morning, going to the sea side and realizing you're a horse and gallop about. And please, remember to keep your recess voices outside.
