In a dream move for skinny-hipped quiff-whipping rockin' rollin' hipsters the land over SISSY & THE BLISTERS are confirmed as support to The Jim Jones Revue at Shepherds Bush Empire on October 27th. The lucky people of Cardiff have had a sneak peak of this double denim whammy - the bands played together for Steve Lamacq's showcase at SWN on October 22nd. Then on November 5th S&TB play special instore at Beyond Retro in Brick Lane, East Londonshire. And they they tour the UK with Portugal. The Man from November 14th to the 19th - full details below the fantabulous press release for their feverish current 'Let Her Go' EP, which will no doubt be freely available at all the upcoming gigs.

The Truth: Sissy & The Blisters are a four piece rock n roll band based in Guildford. They consist of James Geard (vocals), Nick Benton (guitar and organ), Jack James (guitar and organ) and Ed Kirwan (drums and cymbals). They do not have a bass player because playing bass is boring. The Let Her Go EP, their third release, consists of five tracks of winkle-picker-tapping, fun-poking, face-jabbing rockuntroll rifferama played at a hectic pace and not without a sense of its own absurd panache.

Sissy & The Blisters (they wanted the name to sound like ?ža really fucked up Motown band¨ý) formed in late 2010, three Englishmen and one Australian brought together by a strange mix of serendipity and a vintage Vox organ that is, in many ways, the spiritual core and most temperamental element of the band. Working to a target of sub-three minute bursts of pop noise inspired by 50s rock n roll and 60s beat groups they set about perfecting a heroically imperfect 25 minute live set bursting with mayhem, glorious mischief and some seriously super cool threads.

Two snappily-received singles - Things May Change (Hit Club) and We Are The Others (Friends vs Records) - later and that perfectly heroic live set has been kicked into shape on a springtime Dinosaur Pile-Up tour and booted back out of shape in front of some of BBC Radios finest (notably Huw Stephens and Steve Lamacq) at various low-rent London gigging establishments. Some of these gigging establishments were roughly as large as the tiny abandoned flat into which Sissy & The Blisters squeezed their implausibly wiry frames for the manic Let Her Go video.
