DASTARDS Gig – The Tardebigge

Sunday, June 22nd, 2008

It went well.

The band got together (for the first time) the day before and rehearsed for 3 hours – then headlined at The Tardebigge. On just before was Dead Letter Office. They play some sophisticated music and the keyboards give their sound a fullness.

After them came DASTARDS with Stoo on drums for the first time. Opening with Unknown Metaphors (which was the only track our video camera filmed before running out of battery power) , then Silent Soul, Staying Out, Lonely In-between, Flashlights, What I Came For, an interesting version of Succumb and ending on Trouble.

And here they are (from r to l) George, Stoo, Wake, Jake

Stretch Records

Tuesday, June 17th, 2008

Stretch Records - home of DASTARDS musicStretch Records was founded in 1996 to look after & promote a new young band from Evesham called Panic Hats.

After successfully releasing an EP and ‘bubbling under’ in the UK music scene the vocalist quit and the band parted.

Stretch Records was ‘mothballed’ until 2005 when the son of the owner announced that his band was ‘ready’. DASTARDS first gig was at The Hard Rock Cafe in Birmingham in March 2005. They then went from strength to strength. Stretch Records then formed a limited company and took on Hylton Barnes as Chairman.

Currently DASTARDS is the only band on the roster – but soon there will be more.
