The band started playing live in 2010 once more, but in June, there's a rare chance to see The Birds 'up north' with a gig in Leeds.
Of course, the cult '60s R&B are much changed from the band pictured above, with just vocalist Ali McKenzie flying the flag for the original line-up the rest of the band made up of the Small Fakers (who you might know from their Small Faces act).
Anyway, much of the material is culled from the 1960s sets (most of which features on the must-have The Collectors' Guide To Rare British Birds album) and as a bonus, you get a support set from the Small Fakers themselves. DJ support too, all of which takes place at the Brudenell Social Club in Leeds on Saturday 25th June. Tickets on sale now at £10 each.
