Post War Years @ The Lexington, June 3rd.

Post War Years are far too rare a proposition these days – a band that seem to be genuinely enjoying themselves on stage. They play with an energy I’ve only seen eclipsed by a formidable performance from The Mae Shi in recent months. Continue reading

free mp3:Post War Years – Whole World On Its Head

Halle-freaking-lujah I have finally seen Post War Years (PWY). You know a band is going to be special when three other artists you adore (Wave Machines, Rod Thomas, We Have Band) have said they are ‘amazing’ over the past couple of months. Unfortunately I missed their early set before WHB the other night and a couple of weeks before that I tried to see a non existent gig in Hoxton much to my dismay! But those ghosts are behind me now. Time to rejoice in the wonder that is PWY! Continue reading

Post War Years – No Show

Apologies to anyone who like myself went to Hoxton Square with the intention of watching Post War Years play yesterday evening. For some reason no-one at Underbelly knew the gig was going on and there was no sign of said band despite their MySpace having listed the gig for the past couple of weeks. Sounds like a case for Scooby and the Gang. To increase the ridiculous/mystery factor of the situation, earlier in the day I spoke to one of the promoters from Hoxton Bar & Kitchen on email and he told me the band were playing there that evening, resulting in me posting that venue up on the site. No sign of them there either then!

Who stole Post War Years after their Rough Trade Instore? Are they still there?

If you have any information please dial 0800-WHO-STOLE-POST-WAR-YEARS!

Apologies once again but I personally plead innocence.
