Lady Bird Front cover EP

Lady Bird announce new EP ‘Brainwash Machine Setting’ – advance order now:

Tunnbridge Wells finest, Lady Bird were due to tour the UK throughout May, sadly the coronavirus pandemic has forced the tour to be put back until December 2020 (fingers crossed). To soften the blow the band have within the last hour announced a forthcoming 12″ EP “‘Brainwash Machine Setting” – The band themselves stating “We will miss playing shows and festivals this summer, but hope that you enjoy a piece of LB in the form of this release instead – and we promise to be back LIVE & DIRECT and on TOP FORM later in the year.”

Adding some background to the writing of the EP the band commented:

A mental health breakdown, resurgent imperialism and an inversion of masculine bravado are the story telling themes which make up BRAINWASH MACHINE SETTING. The inception of this EP arose from a photo Sam took of a Japanese woman washing an American flag. Grime-punk is an emerging genre we are really excited about, and while developing these stories we found ourselves drawing on a variety of influences to get our point across. Over to you to determine what it is.”

The EP is set for release on the 26th June 2020, the bands previous two releases sold out in a matter of days, should you be interested we suggest you don’t hang around.

Limited to 500 copies.

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.
