For those of you who dont tweet the Wildhearts tweet person (i know who it is then again I'm sure most of you do) has posted that for Music Live show this year that Mr Battersby electropunk outfit have reformed to play, makes me consider buying a ticket as I missed them first off, whether or not it's a one off or a continuous thing remains to be seen I, however, am a bit excited about it.

This is excellent news. I wonder if they'll do any other gigs or if it's just this one?
Would be great to see them again.

Would love to see them also - got there about 20 mins too late when they played Reading Festival!

They're album was amazing - only saw them once supporting SG5. Surprised they didn't become huge they seemed to have some record company hype behind them at the time. Hopefully they will play a few gigs - support the wildhearts?????

Saw them headlining at Highbury Garage and I was blown away, thought it was amazing!

Good to see that even with a new WH album in the pipeline, Ginger, Ritch and Scott are all busy with other material - can only add to the energy in the camp! :P

Was that the 'debut' gig where they gave away the free t-shirts? If so we were at that one too. Mr P still has both t-shirts because there weren't any girly ones.
Cor, I really hope they do more dates. *crosses fingers*

According to his Rock Radio blog CJ is also keeping himself quite busy too!

Dunno - I got no free t-shirt. Dang, where's my free t-shirt???

I did get a free tape of them from Kerrang! though, I think it had two tracks on it, one being Drugs and Girls, I don't recall the other one.

I'm gutted I missed the free t-shirt. Boooo :lol:

I was at that gig. I remember Chris asking me afterwards if I got a free T-shirt, but they were all gone by the time I got there.

I heard a whisper a few months ago that 'something' might be happening in November. I though the album was a bit hit and miss but they were great live and I'd love to see them again. :D
