Alvin Gibbs & The Disobedient Servants
+ Criminal Mind and The Swindells
(waiting on a new date)
Fox & Newt, 9 Burley Street, Leeds
Age Restriction: 18+
Formed by UK Subs and ex-Iggy Pop bassist Alvin Gibbs after the critical and commercial success of his first solo single and album for Time & Matter Records, ‘Ghost Train’ - released November 2018 - and ‘Your Disobedient Servant’ - released January 2019 - respectively, the Disobedient Servants feature the core threesome of Gibbs on lead vocals and bass guitar duties, UK Subs’ drummer Jamie Oliver and Ruts’ guitarist Leigh Heggarty. This primary trio will additionally be joined whilst touring by invited guest musicians from the pool of talent that contributed to both records awarding the band a flexible live look and a regularly rotating enhanced sound.
The nature of the music resolutely reflects Gibbs’ key influences over five decades: 1977-style Punk rock, Glam rock and 1960’s/70’s Garage and classic rock ‘n’ roll - and this will be the ear fare that the Disobedient Servants will be serving up.
