Gallops storm Cardiff then record for BBC

They stormed their Barfly gig in Cardiff last Friday where they supported This Town Needs Guns and now Gallops have recorded a live session for the BBC.

They are becoming quite the band to go and see down there you know. Cardiff seems to welcome them with arms wide open, maternally embracing them and demanding they return immediately once the city realises they’ve sped off up the A49 back to hometown Wrexham.

The special live session was recorded for Bethan Elfyn’s BBC Radio 1 show at the ex ITV studios, the Machine Rooms. You can hear their broadcast next Wednesday and the following week various tracks and stems from the sessions will be remixed by a collection of producers (unknown as yet) and will be broadcast as a ‘Gallops live remix session’.

I’ve heard the recordings and they sound no less than prodigious.

This Saturday they are playing the Socialist night at the Talbot, which I’ve been told is going to be their last small show for a while. As a consequence there’s been a public service announcement that proclaims:

‘In order not to be disappointed, all revellers should be in attendance at the venue before 9pm of that evening to ensure their entrance to the show is not hindered by congestion’.

Support comes from live dub masters Freedom of Expression (F.O.E.), DJs Wondercut and Birfmarq. Entry is 3 nuggets and doors are 8pm, remember the PSA though.

P.S: They’ve dropped the exclamation (!) mark.
