News from G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S
G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S is fronted by GOLDBLADE guitarist (and sometimes guitaristin THE NIGHTINGALES and UK SUBS), Peter Byrchmore together with KATLAMA frontwoman Karen Swift. Eamonn Duffy from legendary Brum Punk pioneers THE PREFECTS plays the bass so you can correctly surmise it’s a bit of a’supergroup’. The band has been going since 1998 and has made two albums’Cursed with Being Gorgeous’ in 2002 and ‘The Salvation Army’ which is outsometime 2006 after more problems and delays than the Guns n Roses album.Yeh, I know it’s a gap, when you deal with GOLDBLADE’s relentless schedulewhaddya expect? We’ve also been on ‘Blunt Trauma’ a compilation onRevolver Records in the company of UK Subs, Vibrators, Jayne County,Misfits etc and on Punkshit Records ’25 Years Of Brum Punk Vol1′ aongsideGBH, Drongos, Dead Wretched, Intention, Dogshit Sandwich and many morerogues. Most people see the fuck-off horn section and think they’re in forska-punk action. Wrong. G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S come over like The Saints playingthe Dexy’s as politicised by The Clash. It’s a big, brutal, ranting noise.Hear for yourself…….
