Pop Will Eat Itself celebrate their new album Anti Nasty League with a rare return to the London stage  for a show this week at Cargo on Thursday May 28th.

There are not many tickets left so you better hurry up and hit this link.

 

There was a time when Pop Will Eat Itself were a Ramones style fuzzbox Blitzkrieg Bop of a band whose then singer Clint Mansell used to ring me at 8 in the morning looking for help but then they discovered hip hop and unleashed their inner imagination and became big.

They never get the credit for their inventiveness and originality – maybe their modest Brummie nature plus their acting the goat combined to get in the way of their innovative records but they remain much loved.

A couple of years ago they returned with Graeme Crabb joined by the charismatic Mary Byker in a  new line up which had an added industrial muscle to their party pounding and live it sounded monstrous when I caught them at Beautiful Days festival. This London gig will showcase their harder sound and political edge and is a chance to catch up with a band who influenced bands like Nine Inch Nails, The Prodigy and spawned many others.

  1. Sad attempt to keep the band going, hate to say it but it’s true.
    Did some gigs back in the day, did the Shep bush reformation bash – a evening to be remembered and treasured ;) saw the Vileevels a couple of times and the pwei stuff always brought the house down.
    No humor in this incarnation, I’m not a clint groupie but I miss his input, the fatuous side looks to be askew and the darkness is filling the void. Not totally a bad thing but it all feels a bit forced a bit like the last time is saw pwei without graham in Reading 1996.
    To paraphrase Deadpool – like two pieces of a puzzle the wavy edges that go together and make the picture complete.
    I’m a bin there done it fan and will probably buy all the shit you want to churn out just incase we can go back to the day, but I lack confidence.
