Bermondsey Joyriders news - Gary Lammin plays with Wobble and Scabies

I had a brief chat this morning with Gary Lammin before he set off to Dublin with Jah Wobble. The Joyriders played a really successful show earlier in the month with Rat Scabies on drums, and they're doing it again in September. So get your tickets kids.

The Wobble show in London is next Friday at Islington Academy.

 From the press release:

 After playing to a packed 100 Club in July, London punk-blooze trio The Bermondsey Joyriders are back in the legendary venue that is fast becoming their home-from-home on September 3rd.

July’s show saw original Damned drummer Rat Scabies take to the stage alongside ‘Joyriders frontman Gary Lammin (formerly of the Joe Strummer-produced Little Roosters) and bassist Martin Stacey (Chelsea), to form a bona fide punk rock supergroup.  Those missed it first time around will now get a second chance to see this line-up in action come September, and can expect to hear a clutch of new tunes - which the band are currently laying down in the studio under the guidance of renowned Cure and Depeche Mode producer David M. Allen. 

Support on September 3rd comes from London mod-punk favourites Long Tall Shorty and Roxy Club veterans The Plague.  Also entertaining will be the now (in)famous ‘Bermondsey Burlesque Gals’ and DJ Velvet Vespa.

Bermondsey Joyriders frontman Gary Lammin will also be joining PiL legend Jah Wobble on a 9 date UK tour across July and August, as special guest of Wobble’s ‘Nippon Dub Ensemble’.  This pair of punk veterans recently bonded over a shared loved of the beautiful game, to create World Cup anthem ‘England – Your Time Is Now’, which is available for free download via Wobble’s own 30 Hertz label at  Fusing dub sounds with far eastern influences, and featuring on-stage Japanese flower arranging (!) and Lammin’s slide guitar skills on three numbers, the self-described ‘Japanese Dub’ group’s debut UK shows are sure to be memorable nights!
