Black Bombers & Dave Kusworth Group Live on Sunday 15th December 2019
Dave Kusworth - Former member of the Jacobites with ex Swell Map Nikki Sudden, Dave released albums with his own band The Bounty Hunters on Creation Records. This is his first Birmingham show with a full band in several years.
Black Bombers are a Rock ‘n’ Roll band from Birmingham, England.
They are, above: Alan Byron - guitar and vocals, Darren Birch - bass guitar, Dave Twist - drums,
Their raw, sometimes shambolic, power even recalls the Stooges' legendary 'Funhouse' - if the sessions had been gatecrashed by the Damned with the Pink Fairies in tow. Kris Needs, Classic Rock.
Black Bombers’ rhythm section has played alongside members of The Heartbreakers, The
Damned, Lords of The New Church, The Jacobites, The Nightingales... and just once...
a Rolling Stone.
Darren Birch is a former member of Gunfire Dance. Regularly featured during the klassic era of ‘Kerrang!’ magazine they signed with Island. The Damned‘s Brian James and Rat Scabies produced demos which were later released by Jeff Dahl’s Ultra Under label. They remain
highly regarded by connoisseurs of their genre.
Darren Birch is also a member of The Heartbreakers’ Walter Lure’s touring band, and gigged and recorded with The Godfathers.
Dave Twist is a former member of seminal punk/post punk band The Prefects. He features
on their Peel Session derived, and much anthologised, single on Rough Trade. The drummer
also recorded several albums and toured with The Tenderhooks alongside The Jacobites’ Dave Kusworth.
