Friday 20th May, 7.30pm. The East Quay
Nominated BEST LIVE ACT at the BBC Folk Awards 2010, Adrian Edmondson & The Bad Shepherds, will be at The East Quay in May. A real hit at last year’s summer festivals, reviews in The Daily Telegraph and others have described them as “genius”, “mesmerising”, “hilarious” and “absolutely brilliant”
The Bad Shepherds play punk songs on folk instruments. Not as a gag, but because they really like the noise. They think the songs are better than people remember. They love folk instruments. It works. They do songs by The Sex Pistols, The Clash, The Stranglers, The Jam, Sham 69, The Undertones, The Ramones, The Buzzcocks, The Specials, Talking Heads, Squeeze and others, even Kraftwerk! Alright, they’re not all punk, but they come from roughly the same era. They’ve mostly given the songs a kind of Celtic feel, and they’ve stuck in the odd reel and jig here and there. But occasionally they just thrash! They’ve always thought the excitement of a reel taking off is the nearest thing to the excitement of watching punk live in the 70′s…….can’t wait
