As Manchester’s DUDS get set to hit the road with their new album Immediate, Getintothis’ Jane Davies brings news of a Shipping Forecast date.
DUDS will play Liverpool’s Shipping Forecast on Wednesday November 7 as part of a UK tour.
Back in January they cooked up a real storm at the Bagelry, suitably impressing our man on the scene with their relentlessly infectious and oddly addictive compositions of bite-sized post punk goodness.
Straddling the twin worlds of art rock and post punk the band draw inspiration from Fire Engines, A Certain Ratio and Devo, becoming the first UK-based band to find a home on John Dwyer‘s Castle Face label.
Since their formation in 2015, the line up has grown from four band members to seven with all those extra hands allowing for additional experimentation as well as the added dimensions of a brass section and even cow bells!
With their expanded formation it’s certainly going to be a tight squeeze onstage in the intimate confines of the Shipping Forecast for a band whose early career highlights has seen them provide support to the likes of Gang of Four, The Raincoats and Omni.
Back in May they toured France, Spain and Portugal and this summer has seen appearances at a plethora of festivals including Clamlines, Visions and Green Man.
Come down to the Shipping Forecast on November 7 to see and hear something completely different but with a retro feel.
Apparently their stage outfits are grey shirts with epaulettes, making them look like musical parcel delivery men. It’s certain they are going to deliver a lively set!
