The ’60s were a stellar decade for music. But so were the ’70s. And the ’80s. So why not form a band that traverses all three eras? All-star punk supergroup Me First and The Gimme Gimmes cover modern musical history, from pop anthems to slick R&B, country and western to rock’n’roll and psychedelia.
For over a decade, they’ve conquered all manner of genres, classic hits and even different languages – check out their Sing In Japanese EP – and now they’re returning to our shores for a national tour. They bring their kaleidoscopic covers to Manning Bar on Wednesday October 2 and Newcastle’s Cambridge Hotel on Thursday October 3.
