Not Tonight And The Headaches - She's With You
Yesterday's song from Spoilers proved pretty popular so hopefully those of you that checked it out will be back today to listen to an equally great song from Boss Tunage label mates Not Tonight And The Headaches.
From Grimsby, they're genre veterans having previously been involved with a number of earlier bands (including Fallout, Luna Suit, Christmas Jones...). They formed in March 2008 and have been gradually building a reputation as one of the UK's best pop punk acts. They've shared a stage with a number of top bands, including Teenage Bottlerocket. They also recently appeared at the Great British Alternative Fest (alongside the likes of Bizzcocks, The Fall, The Damned and Hugh Cornwall). All in all, they're a band that would be seriously bothering the UK singles chart if the state of mainstream music currently in this country wasn't so bloody dire.
If you want to check them out, their Bandcamp page features both their albums; debut Love...And Other Weapons Of Mass Destruction and their new one, If You Were Real You'd Do Your Own Stunts, as well as their singles : http://nottonightandtheheadaches.bandcamp.com/
Next up for the band is a new video. Filmed by Mark Richards, it's for the track I Guess This Is Progress. Also to look forward to is a special gig at Yardbirds in Grimsby on 30th Jan, it's bassist James Elliott's 40th birthday and the bill will also include Spoilers and Bear Trade.
From the latest album, this is my favourite track. Short and punchy, it's a tale about a friend, a girl and a broken heart. She's With You......
