What do you get when you combine vibrant energy, plenty of good-times and a gaggle of young ska-punksters together? You get something a lot like Imperial Leisure, a London band who have quietly (well until you hit the play button, that is) been uploading heaps of perky videos such as "Great British Summertime", "Dead Model" and the one embedded in this very article, "London to Brighton". Nice bike skills, lads.
With a passing nod to the scatty and frenetic opening sequences to The Monkees' popular TV Series (R.I.P. Davy Jones), "London to Brighton" is taken from their forthcoming second-album, "Death to the One-Trick Pony", a 14-song collection of ska-flavoured knockabout and FUN punky-pop that doesn't wear slack-assed jeans or floppy fringes, but leaps about in technicolour shirts, sunglasses and attitude.
In support of the album, which is released on 26th March, Imperial Leisure will be out touring the UK during March and April and we have a very special competition for you!!
We have 5 pairs of tickets to any one of the following Imperial Leisure shows and all you have to do is click on the Enter Competition button below and follow the dead-simple instructions, remembering to select the region for the show you wish to see. Choose wisely though - these tickets are like gold-dust - very limited!
Deadline for entries is close of play on Friday 16th March.
