The Lee Harveys are launching a new 4 track EP entitled “77” which follows hot on the heels of their recent 6 track mini album, “221”. “77” was produced and mixed by none other than the legendary Rat Scabies (The Dammed). This is a raw 4 track EP recorded with no overdubs and presented on a good vibrations style sleeve on pink vinyl. The band has released 5 albums over the years: “Gun City” (2013), “Still Angry” (2014), “Bullet for the President” (2016), “Resistance is Not Terrorism” (2019) and “221” (2021).
Vive Le Rock magazine said about The Lee Harveys; “Think back to the days of what was termed shellshock rock in Northern Ireland and imagine a perfectly formed amalgam of prime period outcasts and Rudi. The spirit of that era rears its beautiful spiky head in the shape of Dublin 4 piece The Lee Harveys”.
The Lee Harveys formed in 2009 in Dublin and play 1977 style original pop / punk / power pop. They have ploughed a furrow through the Irish punk scene and to date have released 5 albums, Gun City, Still Angry, Bullet for the President, Resistance is not Terrorism and 221. They all garnered much praise in the music press. Hot Press remarked; “Its music to sing along to but with something more sinister bubbling underneath the surface”.
They have opened for the likes of Buzzcocks, Stiff Little Fingers, The Outcasts, The Beat, 999, The Members, TV Smith, Penetration, Protex, Blood or Whiskey, Paranoid Visions and The Dubtones, to name but a few, in addition to headlining gigs in their own right. Catch ‘em while you can and miss them at your peril!
Tony St Ledger is guitarist with Trouble Pilgrims and will be performing a set of his own material on the day.
About the Alternative Sunday Social Club
The Alternative Sunday Social Club was created so that music fans can enjoy some top tunes on the last afternoon of the weekend. Since we launched at the beginning of 2015, we’ve hosted gigs by Rocky DeValera (front man of legendry Dublin bands The Gravediggers and The Rhythm Kings), The Dubtones, Blood or Whiskey, JC Carroll (The Members), The Business, Brush Shield’s Skid Row, Trouble Pilgrims (formerly The Radiators from Space), The Lee Harveys, Eileen Gogan and the Instructions, The Winters, The Hacklers, TV Smith (The Adverts), Strand, The Unelectables and The Outcasts. We’ve had music from right across the spectrum with rock, guitar pop, punk, Americana, blues and ska and we’ve grown our crowd by word of mouth with all ages dropping by on Sunday afternoons. For the band they get the kick of their early live shows, and the audience gets to enjoy the music and the musician up-close and personal. It’s cheap, cheerful and above all fun for everybody who comes along. This isn’t 1000s of people in a converted warehouse; this is dozens of people enjoying music the way it was meant to be seen and heard.
