Bad Touch & Broken Witt Rebels – Friday 7th April, 02 Academy Birmingham

Let’s get the sour grapes out the way, I’m in a venue that’s notoriously bad about communicating the times bands are due to appear, and when punters do arrive they inevitably complain about the price of a pint. “Tell me where you bury your dreams” sings Bad Touch’s singer Steve Westwood rather aptly as I walk in; the band having ...

King King + Broken Witt Rebels: The Robin 2, 2017

The Robin 2 is heaving, packed to the rafters and Broken Witt Rebels looked dwarfed by the whole affair. This despite the fact they’ve grown up a lot in the last year. Still young, but a little worldlier; less running around manically, more concentrating on the music. Fortunately, tonight’s crowd seem familiar with that part of the equation, and where ...

Broken Witt Rebels, The Sunflower Lounge, Birmingham, April 2016

Second City kids on a Friday night out: lads fresh from the cash point supping from bottles of beer, girls in their party frocks clocking the competition coming in. The Sunflower Lounge is rammed. Something in my aged mind triggers a vague memory that long before the congregation gathered here was conceived this might’ve been a quiet gay bar, one ...
