Baby Strange / May 2016 English Tour

By on Wednesday, 18th May 2016 at 9:00 am

Glasgow indie rockers Baby Strange are setting out tonight (yes, tonight!) on a run of co-headline dates with fellow Glaswegian band White. The tour comprises eight shows, including a special gig hosted by Club NME and BBC Introducing on the 27th of May at London’s KOKO.  Following their run of English dates, Baby Strange are also scheduled to play at the Electric Fields Festival in Scotland on the 26th-28th of August.

Along with the list of tour dates, Baby Strange have released a new video for their current single ‘Pure Evil’.  The video consists of footage filmed in a Portsmouth nightclub back in 1992, found and pieced together by the band themselves. “There’s so many characters, some of the people remind us of people we know,” says frontman Johnny Madden. “We wish we were there, it looks care free. No one messing about on their phone, just a bunch of people having a good time.” If the idea of a good time with no phones seems hard to believe, watch the video just below the tour date listing for proof.

Cancellations galore

By on Wednesday, 12th September 2007 at 7:08 pm

Kaiser ChiefsWhat is it with bands cancelling US tours at the moment?

The Kaiser Chiefs, White Stripes, Justin Timberlake and now The Noisettes have all cancelled and or postponed dates in the USA in the last 24 hours – all a bit strange.

Kaisers “want to work on new album“, White Stripes’ Meg has anxiety issues, Justin needs to rest his voice and has postponed two shows, and now the Noisettes plain and simply need a break.

One does wonder if it’s just ‘cos they’re wimps – a big tour scare them too much instead of the usual one night on three nights off of a British arena tour? (joke)
