Happy Worldwide Gothic Day!!
Hi everyone!

If you're in the mood to celebrate World Goth Day then be sure that you own (along with Mick Mercers original books) one of the most entertaining, definitive and accurate books on the subject:

Partly Faithful - A wing and a prayer?
My new(ish) band, Partly Faithful, will be the opening act at the Duchess on Friday 22nd July (this Friday) for the DV8 Festival in York.
We'll be onstage at 7:10pm prompt and followed at that venue by Cold In Berlin, The Chapman Family and O.Children.. with Luxury Stranger[1] (including Chris Banshee) and Gary Numan performing later at the Barbican.

Don't forget to catch Jo Violet performing with The March Violets at the same venue on Sunday :)



[1] Not entirely sure if there will be an overlap between headliners at the Duchess and Luxury Stranger.. but, as far as I'm aware, there won't be any clashes with Mr Numan.

You may all now leave to contemplate your weekend plans in silence.. ;)

About a DV8 Festival Final Show..
Just a quickie to say thankyou very much to all those who turned out for our final show, thanks also to the kind words from the other bands. Thanks to Chris djhamsterboy for inviting us to play the DV8 Festival and defying all nay-sayers to produce something truly about the music, something for the UK.. and something most definitely and sorely needed. Best of luck with DV8 2011.. I suspect we shall all be there in one form or another.

Many thanks also to Glass, Luxury Stranger and ROMANCE for being part of my perfect lineup for a perfect send-off.. thanks also to Devilish Presley for the namecheck at Stereo.. I cannot recommend these bands highly enough.

Thanks also to Berlin Black for proving that mighty acorns from Banshee oaks do grow.. or somesuch ;)
This is also a band you need to support.

These bands are important. These bands are doing things in the UK differently.


Finally, my own personal thanks to Chris Banshee, Jo Violet, Neal Unreal and Steve Byford for being part of the great SBA adventure.. along with all those who have also been part of the family along the way: Nick Daniel, Vicky (Vix-Hun), Donnie (Blue), Tina 'Smash' Williams and Tori Pink.

I'll be doing a little housekeeping on the various SBA accounts during the next few days.. and then there will be no more posts.

It was a blast.. and that's exactly how SBA should end.

Long live truly live music, never accept second best, long live SBA.. RIP.

Cold In Berlin: London

Enigmatic front woman Maya is a vocal hurricane as she charges around the stage for Cold In Berlin. Not so quietly building a name for themselves with their live reputation and previous single ‘Destruction’ the anger and thrashing sexual tension they exude is a sight to behold, imagine a Blondie, Ramones, New York Dolls mash up. See them in a small venue whilst you can.

See their last Chamber Performance here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MgLc-8Rh0HE

Vile Imbeciles: London

Needing little introduction as we’ve already had on Brighton Junk Funkers on twice, they have now expanded to a five piece and are working on their third album. New songs ‘Split Your Signature’ and ‘Rolling Ice Cream’ have a more laid back dementia to them. Come and see where they’re at.

Screaming Banshee Aircrew: London

We are honoured to be the last London show that Screaming Banshee will ever play and it’s a shame that the stadium sized alt rock never got to a wider audience. Rooted in the early 90s Goth/Industrial scene they merged these influences together with Bauhaus like edge. But its better to burn brightly and briefly than to fade away into anonymity. Come and see them off in style.

Live -

The Gaa Gaa’s: Brighton

Metallic post punk with hints of early Cure. Reverb drenched vocals and sexy sinister melodies. With the same grime and beauty as early Neils Children, claustrophobic and erratic.

"...there’s a menace here that imagines a studio scuffle between prime time ‘psyche’ era Killing Joke and the late 70’s recalcitrance of the Stranglers. Classily caustic." - Losing Today Magazine

‘Entertainment’ Video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CsAnngoFaPg

Stavin’ Chains: London

Dirty and aggressive, the bass driven hooks judder menacingly around you with as much grace as a fumbling one night stand. Painful moans, sweaty melodies and explosive climaxes. This is EXACTLY the kind of this we like.

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Alas.. the end is near..

After 9 years, 5 albums, more live shows than we'd care to count and thousands of miles travelled on the M1, the Screaming Banshee Aircrew have finally decided to call it a day.

We'll still be playing our scheduled London shows on the 8th June (Camden Rock, tomorrow) and 2nd July (Chamber at New Cross Inn). Our last ever show will be at DV8 Fest in York on 17 July so we hope you'll come along to help see us off in style.

We'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported us throughout the years, bought our CDs/merchandise and helped us bring a little Banshee chaos to venues up and down the UK. This may be the end of SBA as a group, but keep an eye out for exploits from the various members in the future.

We're staggering this announcement a bit, but thought we'd post it here first to give our loyal fans the heads up that the shows currently listed on our website will be our last ever performances together.

We did it our way.. we had a blast. Come see us off in style.

Chris, Jo, Neal and Ed.
