The Blinders + supports on Thursday 18th October 2018

The Blinders are a three-piece alternative group from Doncaster who are now based in Manchester. The band attempts to be in your face at all times, smelting loud and visceral political punk rock with enigmatic, psychedelic poetry and tones. Their diverse, unique combination of raw music creates the ‘Punkadelic’ sound which forces the trio to give everything they’ve got into their frenzied performances, leaving only blood-stained instruments behind.
The Blinders have been picking up specialist radio support since their first DIY releases from the likes of Radio 1’s Huw Stephens and Daniel P Carter, Radio X’s John Kennedy, and 6Music’s Chris Hawkins and Steve Lamacq, who recently had the band on his show for a BBC Music Introducing Session.
‘Columbia’ is bracingly thrilling debut which firmly places The Blinders at the vanguard of a new generation of politically engaged British guitar bands. Loosely based around the concept of Columbia as “an alternate world informed by reality”, on the album The Blinders display a ferocious intelligence, as influenced by history, literature and art as they are by Britain’s current political and economic woes. As well as ‘L’Etat C’Est Moi’ – “a delirious indie stomper with a heart of gold” CLASH – the album contains previous single ‘Gotta Get Though’, which spent five weeks at No.1 at Amazing Radio.
