Crivens!

Music moguls re-form Disco Zombies to play their first live show in 30 years!!!!
Formed in 1978, in Leicester, where the original five members met at college.Disco Zombies were prominent members of the Leicester new wave scene and went on to release three singles, all of which featured in the indie top ten of the day, including the iconic 'Drums Over London'.

The band were championed by John Peel, who had a liking for the track 'Where Have You Been Lately, Tony Hateley?', which was recently voted Best Punk Football Song in a poll published by The Daily Mirror.

The reformed line-up is the most definitive, consisting of Dave Henderson (vocals), Andy Ross (guitar, vocals), Mark Sutherland (lead guitar) and Dod - Geoff Dodimead (bass). A classic 1980 Boss drum machine completes the band!

Since the 1980 disbandment of the group, both Henderson and Ross wrote for music magazine Sounds, Henderson going on to publish Kerrang! and wend his way through the EMap hierarchy.
Ross went on to run Food Records, signing (among others) Blur.
Sutherland has established a reputation as a successsful record producer, with his studio in Bow.
Dod does something to do with comodities in the City.

Doors open 7:30pmk and it's only £6 to gain entry.
