The night of the 13th February will cover forty (yes, that's forty folks) years of heavy pop fun and experimentation. Everyone has their favourite Builders song or album, but one night is a great way to discover much much more. The band will play the classic and the rare. The early EPs plus pre-Builders Vacuum have been snapped up (Siltbreeze US or remastered to perfection by Unwucht Germany). The Unwucht box-set legendary as best quality archive. Grapfefruit label in the US are re-releasing FNun Builders in the next 12, and Unwucht are right now remastering undiscovered gems from 1975 (yes that 1975 folks) through to the present. SmartGuy (Utopians Builders EP of 2015) are placing Bill among Billy Childish and others on a soon compilation. This band will deliver the favourites fresh. Expect something old, something new ... Bizarre, punkish, poet-pop, a folky tilt, purely danceable rock? Just get along.
