Reunion 2010 - press release



Back from the dead, the March Violets have reformed for a rare event.

Saturday 13th November at the 02 Islington Academy London, and then straight over the road to the Slimelight for a 3 floor purple Aftershow Party that goes on till 7.30am, and all for £15!

Featuring the original explosive line-up of the Violets, performing a selection of their classic tracks that are still rocking the darker dancefloors and made them a top ten Indie band back in the 80s (when Indie meant Independent). Expect Snakedance, Walk into the Sun, Crow Baby and some new material from the Brand New Album they are currently creating.

To make this a night to remember, The Violets have gathered a suitably chaotic mix of friends and Very Special Guests:

Support at the Academy will be Ulterior, described as Primal Scream meets the Stooges with a drum-machine.

And for The Aftershow Party, Sigue Sigue Sputnik will be getting their Love missile out! Faderhead will be catering to the more electroid. James Ray's Gangwar have agreed to reform and lurk in the darkness and the latest gothic new sensation from Leeds, Black Moth, will be dancing round the lights.

More Aural Pleasure will be provided by DJs Danny IV from Ladytron, Ashley Casselle (Global Underground/Wall of Sound/Paper Recordings), Dead Matty, Heartlander Quiff Boy and Grandmaster of the dark turntables Martin Oldgoth.

To lubricate the party spirit will be the launch of a brand new drink, PSYDWR, somewhat mental Welsh Cider with Wormwood (yep, the Absynthe stuff). The first pressing of the drink "Grooving in Green" will be released at the Aftershow Party in the Slimelight. This has to be a first.
