Launched today: Eight Rounds Rapid new single Writeabout - the first release on Podrophenia Records
Break out the hats and hooters! The night has finally arrived for the wrappers to be removed from Eight Rounds Rapids vinyl debut and Podrophenia Record's first release 'Writeabout/Steve' - where live, tonight at Southend's Railway Hotel (a venue fanfared in a recent Sunday Time supplement) - we have a three way wing-ding arranged for you….
From 9 (ish) Swindle - Southend's premier ballroom-blitzkreig-bopping punk tribute band covering the sounds of the suburbs heard during the Punk Wars. And in the tradition of Podrophenia switcheroos - I'll be joing the band on bass for tonight!
From 10 (ish) Eight Rounds Rapid - estuary bred rock 'n' rollers returning their first home-town gig since….(see reason 1)
From 11 (ish) The Podrophenia Roadshow -a muti-coloured pop-swap of double-decking from Piley and the other one
Still unsure? Have a listen to 8RR's Writeabout as featured on Steve Lamacq's show last Tuesday at 47 mins in - ' I recognise that venom' says Lammo
And Eight Reasons Rapid why you should haul your boogie Railway-wards tonight
1) It's the Eight Rounders *first* hometown show since supporting Wilko on his Farewell Tour. A homecoming gig you could say...
2) Writeabout/Steve is the band's vinyl debut.
3) This limited edition single is the only place you will be able to get Writeabout. Hand-numbered copies will be on sale tonight
4) They sounded fab on Gideon Coe last week (5 mins in). They sounded fab on Steve Lamacq (see above)
5) Eight Rounds Rapid sound even more devastating live - come and check them out
6) The glowing single review by Kelly Buckley in The Echo
7) There's a hot-rocking support band (Swindle) before. There'll be a podrophonic shindig afterwards with tunes such as....
8) It's all free
So get there early and you may grab a low number edition. We'll be seeing you from 8 tonight then....?
All the info you need to know about writeabout, tonight-about is hereabouts
