Dolls have today announced details of a headline show at The Hope & Anchor (Islington) on November 28th in association with Crosstown Concerts. It follows the release of their ‘Pop The Bubble EP’ (produced by Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds / Grinderman drummer Jim Sclavuno).
Released at the end of September, the band played a packed-out launch show for the EP at Rough Trade East. They’ve just shared a video from the show which you can check out below:
The poster for the bands show pays tribute to the Hope & Anchor’s legendary “Front Row Festival” which took place in 1977. Only a year after The Sex Pistols infamous appearance at the 100 Club, the Front Row Festival saw emerging punk & new-wave bands on London’s live circuit come together on one bill, and included appearance from The Stranglers, X-Ray Spex & The Saints.
A little more the ‘Pop The Bubble EP’ …
Having spent the last year relentlessly gigging in and around the capital, packing out venues and being heavily championed by Radio X & BBC Introducing, Dolls spent the summer working with Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds / Grinderman drummer Jim Sclavunos on their “Pop The Bubble EP”.
Released at the end of September, the EP marked the first time they had world with Jim Sclavunos, whose production credits include The Horrors, The Wytches and Du Blonde. The result is 4 garage-pop anthems with as much sass as they have bite. Duel vocals bounce off each other effortlessly, capturing some of the awesome chemistry these two bring to their raucous live performances. Check out lead single ‘Sugar Free’
Released via iconic soundtrack labels Mondo/Death Waltz on a beautiful limited edition multi-coloured and etched vinyl LP and digital – it is available to order on vinyl here.
