The Computers announce UK tour and limited edition tour single.

“Show you how to kill in four four time”

Trail-blazing Exeter punks and recent Artrocker Award-winners, The Computers are very excited to announce that alongside their forthcoming tour with Leeds quartet Pulled Apart By Horses they will be releasing a strictly limited edition blue vinyl seven-inch single of the previously unreleased track ”˜A Real Testimonial’.

Limited to just 250 copies, it was recorded with Rocket From The Crypt and Hot Snakes main man Speedo during the bands album sessions last year. There are no plans for this to be available in shops, so if you want one, you have to get to a gig!! Half (roughly) available in Europe, the other half (roughly) available in the UK on the following dates with Pulled Apart By Horses.

“We are super excited to be supporting the awesome, handsome and powerful Pulled Apart By Horses!,” exclaims singer and guitarist Screaming Al. “As you might imagine, this tour is going to blow your socks off, set fire to your socks and then put them back on again!

“50’s-fuelled riffery and scream along gang vocals with an intensity that would make ChuckBerry roll in his grave.” Rock Sound

“A neutron explosion of fury.” Artrocker

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.
