23rd April 2013
Share: Artist Profile
** THE CROOKES HEADLINE THE SCALA ON MAY 21ST! **
** VERY SPECIAL GUESTS ARE THE HEARTBREAKS!! **
** HEY SHOLAY ARE FINAL ADDITION TO THE BILL!!! **

Erudite NewPop dreamers THE CROOKES are poised to play the Kings Cross Scala in London on May 21st 2013 and release a brand new single. The Sheffield quartet play their biggest headline show thus far in the capital as part of the fierce panda label's 19th birthday celebrations and then a week later, on May 27th, they release Bears Blood / Dance In Colour on 7 and download. The special guest support act for The Scala is their terrific NewPop cousins THE HEARTBREAKS, once again proving that less is Morecombe. And we are thunderously thrilled to announce that fellow Sheffield progpop explorers HEY SHOLAY have been added to the bill. The final details look like this:

THE CROOKES have already toured the UK twice in 2013, once with Richard Hawley and then with Little Comets, as well as nipping over to Austin for SXSW. As befits their true Crookesaholic working spirit, both single tracks Bears Blood and Dance In Colour are brand new and indeed never-released-anywhere-else-before. Rest assured that they have quite probably written and recorded the bulk of the follow-up to their current sophomore album 'Hold Fast' on any spare afternoons off, and while they toil and sweat gently whet your appetite for construction by checking the ace video for Bears Blood over at

THE HEARTBREAKS are welcomed back into the panda bosom with tonight's show rekindling memories of the excellent early days when they appeared on our 'Zip It Up' compilation EP and sneaked out 'I Didn't Think It Would Hurt To Think Of You' on sister label Giant Haystacks. One entire whirling album cycle later their key quote is this: "Having had a number one hit in Japan with their single 'Delay, Delay' from the album 'Funtimes', the band are close to completing the recording of their second album, with producer Dave Eringa (Manic Street Preachers, Nine Black Alps). It's fucking amazing."

HEY SHOLAY toured with The Crookes last year on the promotional trail for their cosmically-titled (((o))) album. Next up comes a wee EP release on the panda on June 3rd and their songtitling instincts are no less mind-bogglesome, judging by the fact that one of the new tracks is called If That Big Old Fat Yellow Thing In The Sky Was To Burn Out I Would Grab You By The Hand And Float Off Into Orbit (A Song For Robert Wyatt). Skywatchers might be unsurprised to hear that it sounds like Flaming Lips mainlining Pink Floyd with Jeff Lynne toodling the vibes.

fierce panda themselves are delighted to throw themselves back into the Scala's arms: previous panda anniversary hoedowns have seen The Walkmen and Goldheart Assembly thrill our birthdaying senses at this venue with the likes of Hatcham Social, The Molotovs and indeed The Crookes themselves in support. And so the furry wheels keep turning...
