Contenders - Easterhouse

Formed in Manchester by the Perry Brothers in the mid-80's they first came to prominence after being championed by Morrisey. They signed to Rough Trade Records and the singles 'Whistling In The Dark' and 'Inspiration' were both Top 5 independent chart hits. The singles were both convincing accommodations between music and politics, the band being deeply affected by the betrayal of the working class by the labour Movement. Their debut album 'Contenders' was well received by press and public alike and reached No 3 in the Indie charts in July '86

The Story So Far
Released 27/11/08. The Mo-dettes were NEVER a Mod band can we just clear that up? Instead, they were formed as part of the punk explosion, with former members having been part of the London squat community, numbering Joe Strummer and Sid Vicious among their housemates. Indeed, the genesis of the band came about while drummer June Miles-Kingston and guitarist Kate Corris were assisting Malcolm McLaren and Julien Temple on the set of The Great Rock ā€™nā€™ Roll Swindle. All this and more is explored in the accompanying booklet, in which both Kate and June talk at length about their time with the Mo-dettes. So we get the inside story on encountering rednecks in the American south, facing equally patronising attitudes in the studio and finally, what to do when your roadie wants to date your singer. The band also featured Jane Crockford on bass famous for the punk cannibalism incident when she bit the ear of Shane McGowan at a Clash gig and Swiss singer Ramona. Our Price: £9.95
