Black Spiders Hit Road

Our favourite rock band to listen to when we're in a drinking-a-2-litre-bottle-of-White-Lightning-on-a-Wednesday-afternoon-while-naked-apart-from-snakeskin-cowboy-boots-and-a-bullet-belt-before-having-a-lie-down-on-the-kitchen-floor-for-a-bit kind of mood, The Black Spiders is hitting the fucking road.

The press release that we were sent comes with this endorsement from BBC TV's Bill Turnbull for their recent, excellent Top five in the rock chart album Sons Of The North: "It's like having your teeth kicked out by a sexy donkey."

(Although for legal reasons we should point out that we are in no way sure of the provenance of this quote.)

21 FEB BRISTOL CROFT
22 FEB NOTTINGHAM ROCK CITY
23 FEB LONDON THE GARAGE
