The Informers [Punky Pop, 3 piece]
Great evening listening and dancing along to The Informers at the Wheatie - hope you're back soon. A few photos from the gig on the Wheatie FB site.

Cheers Tim - always a great night & lovely crowd at the Wheatie!
Yet another great show at the Horns. Loved the set and good to chat before the show. I am an old school guy (yes old) so would love to hear some of the tracks that I grew up with :) so some food for though on potential tracks :- From across the pond, Blank Generation, Roadrunner, Garry Gilmore's eyes, Chinese Rocks or anything by the Ramones, I wanna be your dog. From this side of the pond, Sound of the Suburbs, I live in a car, Into The Valley or The Saints are Coming, Right To Work, Homicide, Automatic Lover, Another Girl Another Planet, Is Vic There?, Turning Japanese, anything by The Cure. A bunch of random but reasonably classic tracks you might consider :) -Martin

Cheers Martin & thanks for the suggestions. We have actually already played a few of those in the set already & have 'rested' them for a bit. Others in your list have certainly been attempted & dismissed for one reason or another (probably because we couldn't do them justice!), but there are a few we haven't tried. We're currently rehearsing some new old songs so will run these up the flagpole and see if the cat wants to lick any!.
All the best.
Fantastic gig at the horns, missed too many of your recent gigs due to work etc... Last nights show reminded me why I need to make more of an effort. A great set list, good to hear some of the old favorites and some tracks I haven't heard you do before. Stand out songs for me were Love song, Staring at the Rude Boys, This is England and of course one of my all time favorite bands Alternative Ulster by SLF

Thanks Martin - that was a great night as ever at The Horns. We're back there in October & December and other places in between! See ya soon!
Best pub band around..... Brilliant solid performance every time. These guys play stuff that other bands daren't.
