With the NAC temporarily closed for regeneration I’ve had a dearth of gigs, seeing relatively few over the summer until I headed to a very hot and sweaty Waterfront Studio in late August for Peach Club’s triumphant homecoming gig at the end of their Post Modern Siren tour.  They had strong and impressive support with Norwich’s K.M.B. opening the night in fine style ahead of a powerful set by Lemondaze from Cambridge playing post-punk with elements of shoegaze.

It felt a while since I last saw Peach Club and I was very much looking forward to this. They did not disappoint and danced with the lively and enthusiastic Norwich crowd. Danced quite literally together at times as Katie ran off the stage and became part of the throng at the front. Punk and riot grrrl spirit made for a hugely enjoyable headline slot from Peach Club and they were just what my ears needed on the back of folk festival which as enjoyable as it was it was I felt a bit folked-out and needed some noise of which I got plenty here. It was loud, lively, sweaty and wonderful. Welcome home Peach Club, and another proud night for Annie Catwoman with Sonic Youths‘ alumni on the bill at The Waterfront, albeit under the “difficult” red lighting of the studio.

“Peach Club are an activist riot grrrl DIY punk rock band consisting of vocalist Katie Revell, Amanda Mackinnon on bass, Charlie Hart on guitar & Rebecca Wren on drums.

“Beyond the fuzz, what’s most exciting about Peach Club is how every stab of noise feels like a mission statement.” -DIY

“Whip-smart garage punk, beneath the riotous riffs lie some cool-as-hell hooks that can’t fail to draw you in.” -CLASH

Support from Lemondaze + K.M.B”

Big thanks to Peach Club, Lemondaze, K.M.B. and Lee.

More Sonic Youths could be heard on Thursday evening in the city for the last of the season’s Head Out Not Home events, with Lucy Grubb and (the) Red Dear both performing.
