The Boys - Deluxe Reissues Release Party at The Borderline, London Saturday June 22nd with The DeRellas

Tomorrow at The Borderline, The Boys will perform a one time only special set comprising only songs from their first two albums "The Boys" and "Alternative Chartbusters", to mark the definitive digitally remastered Deluxe Re-issues of both. The new versions will feature previously unreleased bonus material and sleeve notes by Mojo Journalist Dave Henderson and a track by track guide from Singer/Guitarist Matt Dangerfield. Legendary Hollywood Brats singer and founding member of The Boys, Andrew Matheson, is flying in specially from Canada to join the band on stage as a very special guest. Andrew was in the Hollywood Brats with Casino Steel before they both joined up with Matt Dangerfield in 1975 after he left the famed pre-Punk band London SS. Matt brought along his Art college friend Honest John Plain and they recruited Duncan Kid Reid on bass and Jack Black on Drums, before going on to unleash some of the most influential melodic Power Pop to emerge from that early 70's Punk scene such as "I Don't Care" and the classic "Brickfield Nights".
