Hoosiers head to city
Fresh from their date with the county’s newest boutique festival – Kent Life’s Hops and Harvest – the Hoosiers mark their 10th anniversary with a date in Canterbury.
It is 10 years since they released their debut album, The Trick to Life, which spawned the singles Worried About Ray and Goodbye Mr A. Never released on vinyl, the band, pictured above, are releasing a new limited edition vinyl pressing and expanded 2CD edition of their debut as part of their tour, which will also see them the album in its entirety for the first time. They’ve had their ups and downs since, but self-released The News From Nowhere in 2014, and The Secret Service in 2015, after troubles with labels. Frontman Irwin Sparkes said: “Doing it on our own terms and actually having a proper say in it, felt wonderful. We had nothing to lose, but a lot to prove.”
They play The Lounge in Canterbury on Tuesday, October 3. For tickets visit 10years.thehoosiers.com
