Post punk band, Play Dead not have announced that they have returned from the mists of time with this curious announcement on the Church Of Killing Joke facebook page being a fake.

‘…this is wiff of play dead infamy!! As I said yesterday,we are going to play a small set this Saturday at the wine vaults in Banbury Oxon at 8.00 pm.Its totally free to all and we would be blown away if as many of our old fans(and new) could make it down to see us. We shall mainly be playing the more well known of our tunes and a trial of our soon to be released new single phoenix baby! We shall be glad to sign any old vinyl that you care to bring and chat about old times.A guest appearance of Red Texas will hopefully happen,although that has to be confirmed.PLEASE PLEASE ALL COME,WE ARE GONNA RAISE THE FUCKING ROOF….PEACE AND LOVE ALL..WIFF,PLAY DEAD…’

  1. From the official Play Dead Facebook page-

    “Despite claims made elsewhere on social media, Play Dead are NOT making a live appearance in Banbury (or anywhere else) this coming weekend. This posting is a total fabrication made by a person or persons unknown for reasons also unknown. Please do not make any travel arrangements or undertake any personal expense to attend this totally fictitious event. Many thanks, Play Dead”.
