“WESTWORLD” 30TH ANNIVERSARY SHOWS
As part of the 30th anniversary of their seminal “Westworld” album, Theatre Of Hate
will play ONLY 5 UK dates in 2013 and one is at The Georgian Theatre Stockton.
In 1980, Kirk Brandon formed Theatre Of Hate from the ashes of heralded punk band The Pack. Joining Kirk on vocals were notable punk musicians Stan Stammers and Luke Rendall, along with old school friend, Steve Guthrie and Canadian born John “Boy” Lennard, who revolutionised the band’s sound with his haunting sax lines.
Theatre Of Hate’s debut double-A-side single, “Legon”/”Original Sin”, topped the independent chart in 1980, and “Westworld”, their debut album, produced by Mick Jones from The Clash and released in 1982, held the number one position for 21 weeks. The single taken from the album, “Do You Believe In The Westworld?” has become an anthem and is still widely played in clubs and on international radio, as well as featuring on numerous compilation albums.
Supporting the likes of The Clash, Ian Dury and Spizz Energi lead to Theatre Of Hate headlining major venues across the UK & Northern Europe.
Theatre Of Hate imploded in 1982, with Kirk taking Stan forward to form Spear Of Destiny, but the band has resurfaced over the years to play some very special shows, and with 2012 being the anniversary of the release of “Westworld”, what better time than now for them to re-enter the fray once again.
Kirk, Stan and John will be joined by current Spear Of Destiny band member Adrian Portos (New Model Army) and Robin Goodridge (Bush) to pay homage to the iconic TOH sound.
