The Lurkers

The Bellfield Tavern are delighted to be bringing to Kilmarnock Legendary Punk Band The Lurkers on Friday 28th September. We strongly advise you get your tickets as soon as cause this will sell out quickly. 2 support bands to be announced :)

Inspired by American bands such as the Ramones and the New

York Dolls, the British beat boom of the sixties and Glam Rock acts like Slade and Sweet, THE LURKERS formed in West London in mid 1976 and quickly forged their own identity with their own brand of punk tunes and lyrics encompassing subjects such as social unacceptability and personal politics.

The band built up a huge loyal following around the punk heyday of 1977 and signed to Beggars Banquet where they scored five top forty hits between 1977 and 1979 . They also appeared on Top of the Pops and many other television shows and became regulars on the popular Radio One John Peel Show.

Due to changing musical tastes within the band and Beggars Banquet concentrating on their new signing Gary Numan, The Lurkers decided to call it a day in 1980. Just two years later, a sudden resurgence of interest in the band inspired them to get back together to record for original manager, Mike Stone's, Clay Label, home of emerging hardcore punks Discharge and GBH. In 1984, new singer Mark Fincham ran off to work the drag clubs of Berlin and the band once again folded.

Original bassist Arturo Bassick got the whole thing going again in 1987 after a chance meeting with the huge German Punk band Die Toten Hosen, all of whom were massive Lurkers fans. Die Toten Hosen financed the comeback album, 'Wild Times Again', which launched The Lurkers' career once more - they have continued ever since, with one line-up or another.

Tickets priced £6 can be purchased from The Bellfield Tavern or online at bellfield.bigcartel.com
