Latest update from Rockaway Beach Festival
🎳 Congratulations Lee Saunders! Honorary DJ at Rockaway Beach 2020! We just could not say no to these two bangers…
“Start with Siouxsie And The Banshees – Happy House. Finish with LCD Soundsystem – North American Scum.”
Thank you to everybody else who took part, some cracking entries from you all. 🎧
PS there’s a great article about the album here: thequietus.com/articles/07301-jesus-and-mary-chain-psychocandy
I love the whole album, but special mention to “In a hole” as it left me open-jawed watching them perform it live on Whistle test that year.
Never Understand, I remember hearing it full blast in a West End club in '85 and it blew me away, it still f*cking does 👊🏻
In a Hole; Hardest Walk
I like the one with the distorted guitars and wailing...
The Living End, In A Hole.
Just like Honey
Never really turned me on. Not my bag, but I dig others' love for them.
Early 80s goff-Sisters, Bauhaus etc
The cure... boys don’t cry
The Cure....so hurry up and announce them! 😉 😁
Do Crass count.....????
Cure why can't I be you
Adam Ant and Siouxsie.
Bauhaus and the Cure
Being an old codger now, as a kid back in 1979-81 I had Bowie and The Beatles on my wall. Some things never change.
Birdland (Lazy Records - now that’s a blast from the past)
Sid Viscous. His solo record came with a poster.
An Even Serpents Shine tour poster which I acquired when going to see them at Loughborough Town Hall in 1979. Sadly, I no longer have it
Echo and the bunnymen
P. I. L
I always had Bowie, then The Cure joined him. If only , eh Rockaway?
Was Claire Grogan postpunk? Asking for a friend.
Spear of Destiny... Legion

🎳 Hot damn! We’re, as of this weekend, just two short months away from Rockaway Beach 2020. Which, of course, means we’re just two months away from headline sets from the legendary John Cale, the genre-defining The Jesus And Mary Chain and a debut festival bill topping performance from the most talked about band of 2019, Fontaines D.C.
Plus, you know, 3 days of curated DJ sets, quizzes, Q&As, proper beds, and pints. Lots of lovely pints...

🎳 Hey, Beachbums. Keep an eye (or two) on our Instagram stories later on today at bit.ly/2zw5MS7 for a mighty takeover by Scrounge. They'll be giving you some behind-the-scenes action at their The Finsbury Pub gig. They'll also be joined by fellow #RB20 band, Eyesore & the Jinx - double the fun.
If you in the area, make sure you get down there - both bands are very, very good.
