If 60s-inspired garage is your game, you might want to get yourself down to the 100 Club in London on Sunday December 5th 2010 – that's the date of The Fuzztones only UK appearance. It's part of a 30th anniversary tour of 40 shows (but only this one in the […]

New band: Towerbrown

We've not done a new band for a while, but here's a good one – Towerbrown. Out of France and describing themselves as '60s Hammond Jerk/R&B/British Beat', they have a very authentic 60s sound – the kind of thing you'd expect to be pumping out of a basement club in […]

The Chords tour dates in August

Ok, here's the thing. I keep getting emails from various promoters saying they have The Chords on. So rather than keep posting those up individually (and because I know it's not something that necessarily appeals to everyone), here are all the tour dates, so you can pick one the one […]

The Like to tour the UK

Club focus: Hidden Charms (London)

Not just a club, Hidden Charms is more of a monthly R&B event. Taking in R&B in a wider, more original sense (as far back as the late 40s, through to the early 60s), the club mixes DJs with live R&B house bands and some 'exotic' dancing at the Cock […]

New band: The Eviltones

Not exactly a completely new band, but we've not yet featured The Eviltones – so here we go. Look away now soul and jazz lovers, The Eviltones are pure 60s garage – noisy, chuggin' guitars, primitive organ, a snarling vocal and catchy sub-three minute tunes. They sound impressive on MySpace, […]
