Overground Records are reissuing The Jerks 'Jerk Off' LP on vinyl. The rear of the cover fesarures this classic photo of The Jerks at the Summer od Hate gig in Huddersfield 1977. Perfectly exemplifies the 1977 spirit of punk rock!

john the postman tribute gig

The postman is the music scene!

Jon the Postman Memorial gig at Tiger Lounge, Manchester on Sat 24th October

Billed as “a celebration of Jon’s life and influence on art , with live music and a wealth of recorded excellence!”  The Things & Mike Finney & Alex Sidebottom of Manchesters legendary The Distractions play at the Tiger Lounge ( Cooper St, off Princess St, Manchester M2 2FW) on Saturday 24th October.

And its Free Entry –  Starts at 7pm so get there early.

In addition to the bands Salford legend in his own lunchtime Steve Doyle will be DJ-ing playing some of the Postmans favourite tunes.

We are reliably informed that Mike Finney and Alex Sidebottom with guests will play a set of classic Distractions songs.

The Things recently released an EP which I reviewed  here.

God Bless the Postman called Jon, long may his memory live on.

This will, I am sure, be a wild night for remembering, drinking, telling stories and of course some great music from the Manchester Music Scene because of course the Postman Is The Music Scene.

The Jon the Postman Appreciation Society meets here weekly on Facebook
