Punk Rock Blues drops the blues for May and focuses on pure and unadulterated punk rock with the Newtown Neurotics, Blood Safari and Chinese Lungs on Saturday 6th May at The Spitz. In this year of sentimental and commercialised nostalgia for punk rock, 1976 and all that, we shine the spotlight on the real punk heartland of England -London’s satellite towns and the bands they produced -in this case Harlow and The Newtown Neurotics. The Neurotics were formed by Steve Drewett in 1979 in direct response to witnessing the visceral roar of The Clash and The Ramones. Highly politicised from the get go with songs such as “Hypocrite” and “When The Oil Runs Out” , The Neurotics soon became firm favourites with John Peel and recorded a number of classic sessions for his show. Playing a few one-off shows since they disbanded 19 years ago this is the Neurotics only show this year to celebrate the release for the first time on CD of their landmark record “Kickstarting a Backfiring Nation” on Jungle Records and a live DVD , “The Long Goodbye” on Cherry Red. Come and bear witness to the true legacy of English punk rock at The Spitz on Saturday 6th May.

Main support comes from the mighty Blood Safari, formed out of the ashes of The Parkinsons (Victor and Pedro) and Penthouse (Charlie Fink) creating a punk rock rockabilly roar that welds the sound of The Gun Club and The Cramps to The Pistols and The Clash. Chinese Lungs open the night with their full throttle punk assault.
