Today we are playing at the Londons Burning Festival, and as Tabi has returned to NL, our good friend and ace drummer Bison is standing in on drums for us. See you at the New Cross Inn – we’re on at 4.20!
Tabi is back in London for a limited time and we can’t wait to play with them again. Our plans while they are here is to play, write and record. This gig is the welcome back party….
Today we had a fun pre-gig practice with Mike (Dinosaur Skull) who is standing in for Tabi on drums at the Queens Head tomorrow. We are so excited about this gig, we’ve been playing gigs for almost 23 years and for most of that we’ve been the ‘token girls’ in a man’s domain. This is the first time we have played on such a female centric line up (Mike will be the only man on stage all night). 23 years ago we could only dream of this line up happening. Mike organised this gig, and when he was choosing the bands for the night he said that it didn’t hit him until the line up was fixed that he would be the only man on stage all night, and he said that he wants to wear a ‘token male’ T-shirt to the gig, (so I drew him wearing it).
Rabies Babies are playing at 8pm, so please come early!
Rabies Babies are more FUN & more FURIOUS & more FEMALE than ever before!
Tabi has taken over on sticks & beats and we are the best ever!
All 3 of us are co-writing new songs and creating costumes and dance moves.
Expect gigs & world domination soon.
Sadly Mike is leaving Rabies Babies, so we need to find a new drummer.
Ideally we would like someone (any gender/age) who can practice every few weeks on a friday afternoon or evening and play 6 or 7 gigs a year. We would like to do a recording soon and try to have something out by our 20th anniversary next year.
We play in Rabies Babies cos we like making noise and having a laugh with friendly people in different places. Rabies Babies are never going to be famous or rich. We play mostly in little pubs/squats/DIY places with good atmospheres, (the sort of places we like going to). If you want to be in a successful band and play at Rebellion Festival then this isn’t going to give you that. Our ambition is not for fame, our ambition is to make the party and smash the patriarchy. We play with smiles on our faces, even if we are singing angry lyrics about fighting sexism.
Our last London show with Mike is on 12th May at Cavendish Arms, come along and have a chat with us if you think you would like to join Rabies Babies. Or email firstname.lastname@example.org
