We are very pleased to announce that the next Retro Man Blog Night at the Half Moon in Putney will be a repeat of last summer’s sold-out “Medway Garage Rock” special featuring Graham Day & The Forefathers, The Len Price 3 and The Galileo 7. Since last year’s show all the bands have been very busy, The Forefathers released their debut album “Good Things” with a launch gig at 229 The Venue in London. The Galileo 7 released their third album “False Memory Lane”, re-vamped their line-up and will release a new single shortly. The Len Price 3, fresh from their excellent work on the soundtrack to the movie Pubmonkey, will release a one-off 7” vinyl single for Record Store Day. So, all three bands are at the top of the game and this gig is one not to be missed, especially as it is a rare chance to catch The Forefathers in such an intimate environment.
As last year’s show sold out well in advance we’d recommend pre-ordering tickets, especially if you are travelling, as it is highly unlikely that there will be any tickets available on the door. Tickets can be booked via the Half Moon web-site here or directly at the venue over the bar.

Graham Day & The Forefathers and The Len Price 3 both contribute a track each to The Half Moon's "Live From The Moon" Ltd edition 12" vinyl album - available from The Half Moon website and over the bar. The tracks were recorded live at last year’s Retro Man Blog Night.
Don’t forget our special Retrosonic Podcast with Graham Day &The Forefathers, where we talk to Graham, Allan and Wolf about their illustrious musical careers and play a great selection of tracks from their back catalogue. There’s also the Pubmonkey Podcast where The Len Price 3’s singer/songwriter Glenn Page tells us about their involvement with the movie’s soundtrack and we chat to the writer and actor Jamie O’Hara about the making of the film. All three bands also feature heavily in our regular episodes of Retrosonic Podcast and in our next episode we will play the new Galileo 7 single and we also have an exclusive play of the forthcoming single by The Len Price 3.
