On Thursday December 18th the Don’t Die Just Yet night will be celebrating their Christmas special in style at Central Station when they play host to headline DJ sets from The Charlatans legendary frontman Tim Burgess and The Horrors keyboardist Spider Webb. Live sets will also be provided by S.C.U.M and The Ruling Class, with proceedings being kicked off by Chester kids The Capitals and tunes being spun between bands by DDJY! residents Ross Roberts, Matty Webber and Josh Page.

This party brings an end to a year that has seen the release of The Charlatans latest album ‘You Cross My Path’ as well as extensive world touring and TV appearances, alongside Tim Burgess’ own work as a DJ and his much loved appearances with his super group The Chavs. Due to hits such as ‘The Only One I Know’, ‘One to Another’, ‘North Country Boy’ and ‘Just Lookin’ (as well as many others) The Charlatans music has commanded a strong influence for bands across the world from the 90’s to the present day, with Tim Burgess personally helping many up-and-coming UK bands in recent years.

Spider Webb returns to Wrexham for his second appearance in the DDJY! DJ booth after providing a fantastic end to our night on September 17th. The Horrors are in the middle of recording their second album, set for release in early 2009.

Live headliners will be S.C.U.M, a dark futuristic rock band who have been receiving credit from BBC Radio 1’s Edith Bowman as well as numerous high profile music journo’s.

Main support on the night will come from The Ruling Class who supported the Charlatans on their most recent UK tour. They’re heavily influenced by the Stone Roses and the aforementioned Charlatans.

Tickets are £8 in advance (subject to booking fee) and anyone over 14 is welcome. Doors open at 7:30pm. Tickets can be purchased in person from Yales Cafe Bar, DDJY! DJ’s and The Capitals; they can also be purchased online at seetickets.com or ticketline.co.uk, as well as over the phone on 0870 444 5556.

  1. “receiving credit from BBC Radio 1’s Edith Bowman”

    Source?? That would be hilarious

  2. The source is edith bowman herself, i heard her comment on them on her radio show, tuesday or wednesday i think. ‘listen again’ and you’ll hear .

    Why is that so hilarious?!

  3. Well they’re not your typical ‘middle of the afternoon Radio 1’ band

  4. Oh god i’m laughing my face off.

    She didn’t play one of their tracks, just commented on seeing them live.

  5. Things are getting a bit ‘Alan Partridge’ in these parts recently!

  6. Is that even worth mentioning then? I’m just saying it would have been funny if I’d heard something like ‘Visions Arise’ sandwiched between Girls Aloud and Iglu & Hartley

  7. i loves it!

  8. and yes it is worth mentioning. Any publicity is good publicity!

  9. I think it is definitely, exposure on BBC Radio 1 on a popular show is something you can’t say isn’t worthwhile.

    I don’t know – I publicise your gig, send it out to the subscribers and you’re criticising it! How nice.

  10. Tim Burgess; really nice fella but recently been sporting the worst haircut ever known to man.

  11. I’m probably on my own when I say this but I actually like the bowl cut

  12. It’s very Inspiral Carpet’s-esque.

  13. Does that mean you like it or shall we just leave it at that? 😉

  14. If it was the early 90’s! Suppose things come back in fashion mind you.

  15. like the ian brown look?

  16. No, were talking proper early 90’s Bowl cuts here paul:


  17. I were referring to your hair style, anyways I look forward to shooting Tim’s hair apparently.

  18. no, my haircut went out of fashion circa 1996.

  19. Talking of outdated and embarrassing…The Ruling Class sound awful Ross and Webber.

    I take it Burgess is making you put them on?

    They sound shiiiiiite!

  20. Sorry ‘tom’ we think they’re quality, if yr not a fan then you can always head somewhere else while they’re on, God bless pass outs!

  21. ah shame you don’t like them Tom… nevermind. I’m sure it’s not the first time we’ve booked a band thats not to everyones taste and i’m sure it wont be the last time. You can’t please everyone
