We are very proud to announce another Retro Man Blog Night at The Half Moon Putney, this will be a Medway Garage Rock night on Friday June 06th featuring Graham Day & The Forefathers, The Len Price 3 and Galileo 7. This is in conjunction with the excellent new book "The Kids Are All Square, Medway Punk & Beyond 1977-1985" by Ian Snowball and Bob Collins. Copies of the book will be on sale at the gig and hopefully the authors will also be there to sign copies.
Graham Day & The Forefathers are the crucial ingredients of The Prisoners, Prime Movers, Solarflares and
The Gaolers extracted and squeezed into one stripped down power trio.
Cranking out choice live cuts from four Graham Day-fronted bands, The
Forefathers (triple) distil 30-odd years of high quality song writing,
low-fi production and high energy performance to their stripped down
garage-rock essence. After a handful of dates as the Prime Movers,
Graham Day, Allan Crockford and Wolf Howard, now rechristened Graham Day
and the Forefathers, are unashamedly pumping out the best material from
all the line-ups, including the Prisoners, with an uncompromising verve
and energy, undiminished from their earliest days.
