Hoosiers head to city

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - What's On - - MUSIC -

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
