0161 fest, Manchester.

We are very proud to be playing on the Anna Campbell stage, 5.45pm on Sunday 17th June. We’re going to give it everything we got for this gig in remembrance of our awesome friend and comrade and all others like her who fought so hard and remain an inspiration and example to us all! This is going to be a big one!

Ireland gigs

So for the first time we are playing a few gigs in Ireland next week. We can’t wait! Here’s how it’s gonna go.

First up is Ballina:

Then on to Dublin!

Last night is Saturday 2nd June in Cork:



Refugee solidarity gig

Roll up, roll up, you ‘orrible little squigglies – it’s gig time at the Red Lion! A night of music raising money for the Dunkirk Refugee Women’s Centre!

More precise times to follow, but things will be kicking off around 8:30/9:00 with….

Anarcho Folko playing their distressing, fast ‘n’ sloppy folk-punk shouty tunes. After several years of lying fallow, this is their long-threatened return to live gigging so come laugh at them shitting their kecks with terror!

Next up is Perkie bringing some awesome solo indie dream pop. Killa keys, vonderful vocals and lush lyrics. personal/political/powerful/passionate/pandas/pangolins

Finally, would it be a Bristol benefit gig without Spanner? Who can say? Regardless, they are playing so all is well. You know the drill: come dance around to their political punk-ska-and-all-sorts stylings and celebrate them finally finishing mixing their fucking album 😉

The gig is a benefit for Dunkirk Refugee Women’s Centre, a volunteer-run space that is “committed to supporting women, families and minors in and around Grande Synthe, Dunkirk and Calais. We support the specific needs of women, children and vulnerable people, of all ages and nationalities, who have left their homes and loved ones due to war, conflict and persecution”

It’s coming!

Yes! There’s a lot of work gone into this one as well as loads of awesome musical, mirthful and mob shouty contributions from friends and comrades of Spanner. It’s taken us a while but we’re actually quite close now. The album’s been mastered and the artwork is in progress. We’re really looking forward to having it out and about!

We’ve set up a crowdfunder to help pay for the release. Anyone wanting to support the new album can get it first and with a discount to say thanks for helping out. So if you’d like to pre-order your CD or LP you can do it here:


And here’s track one from the new album, to get you in the mood for more musical motivation for action and making revolution! See you at the gigs and on the streets!
