Crokodile Tears News


It is a very busy time for cult local band Crokodile Tears. They are excited to be playing Leamington's newest venue, the Magic Lantern on Friday 10th August as well as the same town's the Zephyr Lounge for the inaugural APE Promotions/Alternative Sounds gig on September 29th. They are working hard on their latest album, "Old Skool" (to be released on Monday 3rd September)and have just advised me of two upcoming gigs.

On 9th June they are playing a 3 pm matinee at the CET popup venue. This will be in conjunction with Coventry Pride but will also have an "Alternative Sounds" feel as they will be joined by fellow AS acts Keith Fabrique & Martin Bowes (of ATTRITION) who will play a solo set. There will be an "Alternative Sounds" flavoured DJ set too.

On 16th June, the band will launch the "Positive Images" Festival at 2pm outside Coventry's Central Library (formerly the Locarno/Tiffany's) and later that evening, the Crokodiles' own Chris Sidwell will be playing at the launch of Keith Fabrique's new album, "Talk on the Radio" at the Humber pub.
