Hey! We had an amazing time at Tramlines – both our gigs at Delicious Clam and The Red Lion were full, fast and frenzied. There are a bunch of videos and photos knocking about on our Facebook page if you wanna check it out, otherwise get in touch via our contact page or keep an eye on our gigs page for forthcoming events!
Check out us checking out our test pressing in this video:
On Thursday 19th July we are playing the Opening Blow-out of fab DIY venue Delicious Clam’s fringe Tramlines Festival, wait for it… Clamlines!
We’re playing not one, but TWO shows at the fringes of Sheffield’s huge Tramlines festival this July! First up, the supercool Clamlines pre-Tramlines opening party on Thursday 19th July, from about 8pm onward – at one of our favourite DIY punk rock venues, Delicious Clam! It’s BYOB! It’s gonna be a PARTYYYYY!
Then on Sunday 22nd July, we’re at The Red Lion for the Phantom Power records all-dayer (from high noon onward) along with a ton of other cool bands. We’re on about 5pm, all ages and FREE ENTRY!
Calling all nostalgia junkies! The Vintage Hop returns for its 5th year to Rotherham town centre – Sat 2nd June 2018! The Sleazoids are playing the Vintage Hop after party at the Bridge Inn in the town centre, the party starts at 7:30pm.
The daytime hop and market runs all day from 10:30am and is free! The day will include fabulous live music from The Washboard Resonators, Moonshiners, Sarah Jay and her North Side Boys, The Tombstone Buzzards, solo vintage singer Jilly Kemp and students from Rotherham College.
There will also be an eclectic vintage market, vintage vehicle display including buses from South Yorkshire Transport Museum, workshops from The Button Tin, children’s entertainment and more! Visitors to the event are encouraged to dress up and partyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!
Hey ho! Our forthcoming March Good Friday Freakout gig at The Washy will now be Paul & Missy Sleazoid playing as duo Black Light Ray whilst Mitch Sleazoid fully recovers from an unfortunate snow-related shoulder injury. Please do come and support us – it’s free, we’re on early, followed by Joey Mojito’s Them Sardines, and headliners are the mighty Chicken Hearts! Also Dj-ing is Fat White Family’s Nathan Saoudi! Mitch is recovering well and should be back in fine rock no roll form before long, so in the meantime here’s a photo of The Sleazoids enacting our song ‘Scared’! (pic by Rob S.)
A recent Guardian article about the ‘current’ Sheffield indie scene focussed not only on lad rock bands that had their heyday over a decade ago, but, in this centenary of women getting the vote, amazingly, the article failed to mention a single female in the South Yorkshire music scene altogether. The Guardian published our letter inviting them to our next show to see what the real current Sheffield indie/alternative music scene is like, and what female musicians from oop North can do.
The Sleazoids are playing a big private party later this month (Feb), but our next public show is at The Washington, Sheffield on Friday 29th March, with the amazing City Yelps and Chicken Hearts. It’s free entry, and as to whether The Guardian will be in attendance, your guess is as good as ours! It’s gonna be a GOOD Good Friday Freakout!
A very merry festive season from The Sleazoids, in our own inimitable shambolic style 🙂
