Event description

Description

STOP STOP START AGAIN..."one of the best bands to come outta Belfast in the last few decades, no question. I have to say I feel quite privileged to have been given a sneak preview of their forthcoming new four track EP 'Vampyres' which is set for release at the Halloween do in the Black Box, Belfast on Oct 31. The EP features 3 new songs '(Why Do Chicks Dig) Vampyres?', 'Dirty Stop Out' and 'Robot Bar' before finishing with a storming cover of the Magazine classic 'Shot By Both Sides'. I'm not gonna give a breakdown song by song this time because 1) I'm too fucking lazy, and 2) I would prefer it if you went out and bought a copy and checked it out for yourselves. If you've seen SSSA live or heard their previous releases then you'll have a fair idea of what to expect - a glam rock stomp with Sex Pistols style power chords and just enough sleaze so your momma won't like it! Maybe slightly less (carry on) campiness this time but still retaining that sense of flamboyance”

THE SHANGRILADS...take rock & roll down a musical cul-de-sac, where The Fall play kerby with The Jam after tying Iggy Pop to a lamp post, They rail against corporate miscreants (What became of all the metal, boys?), municipal drain covers (Rapide 40 Slideout), and the boredom of being in a band (I'm a routine).

Shallow and delusional. I loved them.
— Chris Martin (no relation).

I've never seen them play but I'll certainly see them in court.
— Phil Spector
