Virgin Kids // 17th March // £4
FAMILY TREE PRESENTS…
Debut album ‘GREASEWHEEL’ from London Garage outfit Virgin Kids, set for release on Burger Records & FLUFFER RECORDS, February 6th 2016. They now set off on tour in support of their new album, and we are chuffed to welcome them to Fallow Cafe!
Virgin Kids play frenetically energised rock‘n’roll that draws from sources such as post-punk and the ‘70s West Coast.
Originally started as the bedroom project of frontman Asher Preston, Virgin Kids were fully formed in late 2014 with the addition of childhood friend Paul Rosser and ex-Fawn Spots drummer Sean Hughes.
The band have been rigorously playing shows throughout the UK, supporting a number of influential garage artists including; Jacuzzi Boys, The Coathangers, Dirty Fences, and Kim and The Created. The production on their debut ‘Greasewheel’ wisely emphasises the fevered intensity of Virgin Kids’ live show.

NME “The UK’s answer to The Black Lips”
Line of best fit – “With plenty of fuzzed-up energy, Virgin Kids play by no one’s rules but their own. Tempered rhythms saunter into life alongside a rich flow of meandering melodies. Racing choruses kick up the tempo, ricocheting through distortion at a breakneck speed.”
DIY – “London-based trio Virgin Kids share the same grime-under-fingernails, downright grubby mentality as fellow garage punks The Black Lips and Hinds. But with new song ‘Cracks in a Colour’, they form a gnarly manifesto of their own”
Manchester’s own jangled freaked out post-punk garage beat merchants. Big fav’s of ours, last seen playing for us with COWTOWN. Big early Devo sounds and features ex members of MiSTOA POLSTA.
Most ripe and ready garage rock n rollers round these parts. Releases through FUZZKILL RECORDS & STOLEN BODY RECORDS.
