Announce live shows!
Album Black and White Memories out 14 November
Single “T.V. Screen” out 14 November which you can listen to here:
25 October – Hoxton Bar and Grill, London (supporting Baxter Dury)
12 November – The Horatia, London (headline – Album launch show!)
Thee Spivs are delighted to announce that they will be throwing a launch party on 12 November at The Horatia in London for their hotly anticipated forthcoming album Black and White Memories which is out on 14 November on Damaged Goods Records. Their live shows are always unpredictable and thrilling. After playing with The Jim Jones Review at this year’s Mojo Awards show at the 100 Club, the band are also supporting Baxter Dury at a show at London’s Hoxton Bar and Grill in October and will be heading over to Europe to play stacks of shows in Germany. If you want a really fun night out, they really are not to be missed!
The lead single is called “T.V. Screen” and is a limited edition 7” with an exclusive b-side, a cover of the Billy Childish classic ‘I Don’t Like The Man That I Am’ which weirdly enough has also been covered by Pete Molinari and the Singing Loins, both on Damaged Goods! Both tracks were recorded in riotous East London at Gizzard studios with Ed Deegan at the controls over the summer, where they also recorded the rest of the new album.
Thee Spivs are Ben Edge (Guit/Vox) Dan May (bass) and Steve Coley (drums). Rock ‘N’ Roll hasn’t been this much fun for years, give it a try, you might like it! Their fantastic new LP, Black and White Memories, follows their critically acclaimed debut Taped Up (which received accolades including a Mojo Rising feature, Guardian New Band of the Day and reviews in The Sunday Times, Artrocker and The Mirror). Whilst still managing to maintain the original Spivs sound we all know and love, there has also been the introduction of a much wider range of influences. Veering from glam rock to camp fire sing-alongs, this album will not disappoint and is full of fresh surprises. Get ready for Thee Spivs’ unpredictable and raucous live show coming to a town near you soon!
“The influence of Buzzcocks and Billy Childish looms large… Thee Spivs’ sound is shot through with youthful adrenalin, modern references… and they play like their lives depend on it. And in punk, that still counts for something. Crank it up – really high.” Mojo
