The Vibrators on Saturday 26th June 2021
With a career lasting over forty years, vocalist/guitarist IAN 'KNOX' CARNOCHAN, bassist PAT COLLIER, guitarist JOHN ELLIS and drummer EDDIE originally formed the VIBRATORS in February 1976, and their first gig was supporting THE STRANGLERS at Hornsey Art College in North London. They supported THE SEX PISTOLS at the 100 CLUB and were one of the bands playing at the now legendary 100 CLUB PUNK ROCK FESTIVAL, where as well as doing their own set they supported guitar hero CHRIS SPEDDING. CHRIS recommended the band to his then record company, RAK. The band's debut single 'WE VIBRATE' came out in November (one of the first punk singles)
Early in 1977 the band supported IGGY POP (with DAVID BOWIE on keyboards) on a UK tour, then moved to EPIC RECORDS and released the classic 'BABY BABY' single, followed by their first album 'PURE MANIA' which spent five weeks in the UK Top 75, peaking at number 49.
In their long career the VIBRATORS have toured with the likes of IAN HUNTER, THE FLAMING GROOVIES, DIE TOTEN HOSEN, and have had their songs covered by THE EXPLOITED, UK SUBS, GBH, REM, DIE TOTEN HOSEN, to name but a few.
Get ready for many more years of PURE MANIA!
