[5.11.05][Andrew Gallix] PUTTING THE POP BACK INTO POPPY DAY Billy Childish's Buff Medways are playing an Armistice Day gig at Richmond's happening Parliament Club, which is hosted by the Fallen Leaves -- a local band which includes former Subway SectRob Symmons on guitar (see below).
The Parliament Club is at The Black Horse (181 Sheen Road, Richmond, London. Tel: 020 8940 0424) on 11 November. Doors open at 8pm. Entry: 6 quid on the door.
Here's an extract from the press release: "The Fallen Leaves are steeped in history. Rob Symmons (guitar) was a founding member of the original and true version of the Subway Sect, which debuted at the 100 Club Punk Festival in September 1976. Phil King (bass) ex Lush, Felt and The Jesus and Mary Chain is a walking definition of the word 'lynchpin'. Meanwhile the singer, the Reverend Rob Green, built himself a reputation at Bernie Rhodes' legendary Club Left -- sadly, for legal reasons, the precise nature of his reputation will have to remain unspecified."
