Lekendaarinen punkkipoppoo THE BOYS vieraili Tavastialla maaliskuussa 2015

Great gig at Helsinki 29.03.2015! Lekendaarinen punkkipoppoo THE BOYS vieraili Tavastialla maaliskuussa 2015. Mukana menossa oli alkuperäisjäsenistä mm Casino Steel, jonka näin Tavalla nyt toistamiseen, kun eellisen kerran näin noin vuonna 1992. Mukana The Boysissa oli, ja on, Matt Dangerfield, laulu ja kitara, ja Honest John Plain, mutta taustatukea antoi luotettavat Satorin tyypit. Vai oliko. Ainakin näkyvästi Kent Norberg oli. Cas Steel tuli tutuksi The Boysien lisäksi myös veikeistä ralleista ja lainapiiseistä Gary Holtonin kanssa. Heidän levyjään oli kuulkaas juhlavaa ostaa Tukholmasta 80-luvulla, ja syödä sitten loppuviikko makarooneja ketsupilla, ja etsiä tölkkejä, että saisi kruunuja kun palautti niitä. Että sai ostaa makaroonjea. Ja ketsuppia. Sellainen oravanpyörä, mutta mukava kierre, se.  © Satu Ylavaara Photography 2015:

" Kent Norberg with The Boys " lue lisää Satorin sivulta : "When Kent Norberg joined classic 70s punk/powerpop band The Boys it was even beyond a dream come true. To grow up and find yourself in the band of your teenage heroes... well things like that just don't happen.
The Boys were my idols and in a way they were even one of the things that lead to me being a part of Sator. I got back to Borlänge after a period in Norway, where I had discovered The Boys and thought it was the greatest band on the planet. I wanted to share this revelation with everyone but no one else seemed to know who they were. But then I got a tip that there was this guy called Chips who liked them. Chips was two years older than I and one of the cool guys, but I walked up to him and started talking about The Boys and we quickly found out that we liked a lot of the same music. That was it, he's been my partner in crime ever since.

" This is a clip from a 55-minute TV programme made by Chinese TV station LETV which features UK punk band The Boys playing undercover to a secretly invited live audience interspersed with excerpts from a studio interview.

LETV invited the band to come to the TV studios and record two songs live on Friday 23 January 2015. The Boys agreed to their proposal but informed LETV that they would like to play a full 70-minute Boys set to a small live audience. Despite being aware that The Boys had been banned from playing any live gigs in China by the Ministry of Culture, LETV bravely agreed to this proposal. The TV programme was subsequently aired in China after the band had safely left the country.

The Boys had arrived in Shanghai on January 13 to embark on a nine-date national tour to promote their new album ‘Punk Rock Menopause’ only to discover that the tour had been cancelled by the Chinese Ministry of Culture due to “crowd control and security issues”.

The ban came in the aftermath of the Shanghai stampede at a riverside New Year celebration attended by around 300,000 people in which 36 people were killed and 49 injured. Citing worries about major gatherings of people, the Ministry of Culture contacted all the venues on the tour telling them that if The Boys played their premises would be shut down with immediate effect.

Undeterred, the band set off on a cultural/culinary tour of China and along the way managed to play three secret underground gigs promoted entirely by word of mouth and carefully avoiding official Chinese chat rooms and social networks such as Weibo. In addition to the LETV special and the secret gigs, the band gave multiple interviews and recorded a live album, which will be released later this year.
