Saturday 10 October, 8pm
Livestream from The Globe + limited number of seats available at the venue
Archie Brown and the Young Bucks are a Tyneside pub rock institution. The band was formed by Pat Rafferty and Tony Wadsworth in 1975, with frontman Archie Brown joining their ranks in 1976. With later links to such bands as X-Ray Spex, Dexys Midnight Runners and Supertramp, the band grew out of the fertile Newcastle music scene, enduring one or two line-up changes along the way, yet in 2020, they are back to tell the tale with a critically acclaimed new album ‘Lonesomeville’.
“Archie Brown has one foot in the past and the other very much in the present. With a prominent twangy telecaster, courtesy of Wadworth, and a retro rock feel throughout, together with the occasional seasoning of Rafferty’s Tex-Mex accordion and Jerry Lee piano, the band makes a welcoming noise, especially to ears accustomed to the spirited revival of a rock and roll aesthetic.” Allan Wilkinson, Northern Sky
“Riding the cutting edge between semi-professional and semi-retired, these boys are too drunk to stop and too old to die.” Sumwitty Geordie
