The Ruling Class Loogie!!!
28th April 2009
Share:
Top news, kids: fierce panda mgmt kittens The Ruling Class continue on the comeback trail with one reinstated singer and a hatful of lovingly crafted old school indie anthems that sound like what the Stone Roses might have sounded like if they signed to Creation. Bingo! Nailed it! Anyhooooo you may well remember The Ruling Class from their Label Fandango single last year (it was called Flowers / If You Wonder) and now they have confirmed their second single release which will be Marian Shrine / Sleeping Beauty and will come out on 7¬ù and download on your friends and ours Loog Records on July 13th. People who like planning ahead can pre-order the single at http://www.loogrecords.co.uk/shop.html and people who like drinking lager whilst watching ace bands can see The Ruling Class headline Club Panda at the Dublin Castle in sunny Camden Town on Tuesday May 5th, which we do believe is next week.

Club Panda you say? Oh yes. Its the tenth Club Panda show since the revamped relaunch of our cheery monthly gig night out last summer and as well as The Ruling Class we have some frankly beezer support acts in the shape of Eaststrikewest + The Brothers Movement + Rivalries. Full details are lurking over at www.clubfandango.co.uk right bloomin now. But while youre here, have a gander at this lovely press release¦

A safety car-following Club Panda press release

The Headline: CLUB PANDA CELEBRATES 10TH LIVE SHOWCASE SINCE RETURNING FROM THE COLD. SOOOOOO VERY COLD.

The Thing: CLUB PANDA & CLUB FANDANGO PRESENTS

The Bands:
THE RULING CLASS + EASTSTRIKEWEST + THE BROTHERS MOVEMENT + RIVALRIES

The Date: TUESDAY MAY 5TH 2009

The Place: LONDON CAMDEN DUBLIN CASTLE

The Doors: 7.45pm ‚ 1.00am

The Damage: £6.00 on the door / £5.00 with flyer from www.clubfandango.co.uk

The Truth: once upon a fairytale at the end of the last century Club Panda and its magic wand dallied with the bluebirds and butterflies at the Bull & Gate in Kentish Town. And here should be where the story stops. The End. Yet against all the laws of promoting in the summer of 2009, a mere ten years since the fresh faced likes of Coldplay came out to play, the brains behind Club Panda busted off their contacts book and their big gigging bottoms and made a heroic return under the auspices of Club Fandango.

Now happily embedded in the first-Tuesday-of-every-month slot at the Dublin Castle, and still quietly sizzling from the sold out splendour which was Aprils Molotovs / Dynamo Garage / Barefoot Confessor line-up, Club Pandas tenth comeback show is another sweet combination of carefully handpicked cool fringes and punter-friendly poptastic vibes, and those fringes and vibes look something like this¦

THE RULING CLASS (onstage 10.15pm) are five boys based in Stoke Newington who play lovely ruffled old school indiepoprock. Last year The Ruling Class released their debut single Flowers on Label Fandango and went on tour with The Charlatans. After a little bit of kerfuffle in the ranks they started 2009 with a new singer. And then they got to spring 2009 realising theyd quite like their old singer back, actually, so tonight sees the original line-up play its fourth London show since reforming. Confused? You will be. Second single Sleeping Beauty / Marian Shrine is released on Loog Records on July 13th.

EASTSTRIKEWEST (onstage 9.30pm) are already Club Fandango (ir)regulars thanks to an admirably ambitious bundle of surging, traumatic soundscapes which kinda nod to the clattering dynamics of 65 Days Of Static and the yearning vocals of Elbow and the general devil-may-care ins and outs and ups and downs of Radiohead. And they are of course much better than all that sounds.

THE BROTHERS MOVEMENT (onstage 8.45pm) are five bright-eyed clear-eared young men from Dublin with a Verve-esque tinge to their widescreen tunesmithery. Big of heart, bold of chorus and epic of sound, their Blind song is the sort of thunderously impressive pop statement which could get you the support slot with Doves. Which in fact is exactly what The Brothers Movement did get in the middle of April in both Belfast and their hometown.

RIVALRIES (onstage 8.00pm) are four youths from Welwyn Garden City who play echo-laden tunes which can be distorted and disconnected and distant and very frequently mysterious. Its not exactly a laugh a minute but this isnt supposed to be the bloody Comedy Store, is it? Mind you, Rivalries do have bass player called Tom Baker¦
