Bombed Out and artist news

The Take are reforming for two gigs at the start of July. Don't get excited though, this is reportedly going to be a one (two?) off as they play Le Pub along with a reunited Douglas as a memorial to John Sicolo, the TJ's owner who died earlier this year at age 66. The two dates are Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th July and I believe tickets for both have now sold out (contact the venue in case there are Sunday tickets left).
TJ's in Newport was kinda like the Welsh CBGBs and the number of great bands that have played there over the years is just crazy. The late BBC DJ and presenter John Peel dubbed the venue "the legendary TJ's" on his radio shows and our own man from The Valleys, Jamie Duncan, spent a good deal of time discovering new and great music there back in the day.
