The Godfathers – CANCELLED
Screaming Tarts presents…
The Godfathers – CANCELLED.
Sunday June 18th 2023.
The New Adelphi Club, Hull.
Formed from the ashes of The Sid Presley Experience in 1985, The Godfathers’ mob inspired image, raw lyrics & guitar-driven, edgy rock & roll sound was in direct contrast to the clean, synthesized sounds that mainly dominated the mainstream charts at that time & foreshadowed the Brit-Pop/Rock resurgence of the early 1990’s.
After calling it a day in 2000, the band reformed in 2008 and marked the 35th anniversary since their formation in 2020 with the double A-side single “I’m Not Your Slave”/”Wild and Free”. A brand new album, “Beta Gamma Delta” was released in September 2022.
The Godfathers now feature:
Peter Coyne – Vocals (The Godfathers’ founder member, ex The Sid Presley Experience)
Jon Priestley – Bass (ex The Damned)
Richie Simpson – Guitar (ex Heavy Drapes)
Billy Duncanson – Drums (ex Heavy Drapes)
Wayne Vermaak – Guitar (ex The Great St. Louis)
