Liverpool artpunks Pete Bentham & the Dinner Ladies are at the vanguard of the current UK DIY underground scene and have built a strong following across the UK and Europe.
They fuse the raw rock and roll of The Cramps with the invention of The Fall and the pop sensibilities of X Ray Spex to produce their own ‘Kitchencore’ sound.
Their songs are witty and quirky tales of northern working class life, featuring goth postmen, sensitive lorry drivers and their heroes such as Yuri Gagarin and Marcel Duchamp. Always original, funny and poignant.
They have played hundreds of shows and festivals such as Rebellion Festival, Sound City and Great British Alternative Music Festival and have released five albums and two EP’s on. Their last album England’s Up For Sale gained rave reviews for it’s witty and acurate portrayal of brexit Britain.
Their new album What’s On The Inside Has to Come Out on 9×9 Records was released in November 2022 to rave reviews.
This is kitchencore!
Ably supported by quirky punkmeisters Those Naughty Lumps and Daddy Those Men Scare Me plus compere for the evening, ‘the Punk Pam Aryes’, ‘the Cockney Cooper Clarke’, the inimitable Cherry B, this promises to be a night of unrivalled entertainment.
