The Strange Boys have been confirmed as headliners of our Club Uncut night in June. The Texan garage rockers will be playing London’s Borderline on Thursday, June 24.
Tickets are £8.50, available from seetickets.com (telephone: 08700 603 777).
The Strange Boys recently featured on Uncut’s “Rip This Joint” free CD (the one that came with the Rolling Stones issue). Here’s what our editor, Allan Jones, had to say about them at the time:
“On their new Rough Trade album, they often manage an uncanny replication of the Stones’ ramshackle wooziness on parts of “Exile On Main St”. And there’s more than a hint of Dylan in there. You may also be fleetingly reminded of Babyshambles, and not just because of guitarist and singer Ryan Sambol’s passing resemblance to Pete Doherty. Johnny Marr is apparently quite a fan. Me, too.”
A reminder, too, that our May Club Uncut will feature Endless Boogie. That one is on May 12, Upstairs @ The Relentless Garage in London.
Tickets cost £7, and are available from seetickets.com.
