In the run up to Billy & Freddy performing a play at the Edinburgh Festival for the majority of August 2017, they once again hit the road in the UK to rip your ears off and share some stories and good times with you in July. This is the first show of their tour.
Scotland's finest angry and articulate guitar-slinging storytelling songwriter returns to London, in support of his long-awaited forthcoming full-length LP. Billy has spent the last twelve years releasing a slew of well-received and critically-acclaimed EPs and singles, touring relentlessly across the globe including extensively through the USA, Australia/New Zealand and all corners of Europe, sharing stages with everyone from Steve Ignorant of Crass to AJJ, Withered Hand, TV Smith (The Adverts), Joe McMahon (Smoke Or Fire), New Model Army, and countless more.
It's our distinct pleasure to welcome him back to London, following his full band performance at the Black Heart at the end of June, as part of Pre-Wonkfest. You know the drill; urgent, teeth-rattling, engaging, thoughtful sing-a-long acoustic punk rock goodness and bangers by the bucketload.

FREDDY FUDD PUCKER
Freddy Fudd Pucker is a one-boy-band who plays a form of folk/thrash or something. No two shows are ever the same. EVERYTHING FASTER THAN EVERYTHING ELSE. Shrugging off seemingly inevitable Carpal Tunnel Syndrome just to play faster, the newer material seems to be taking him further into the depths of folk/thrash. Distorted guitar loops, banjo, a suitcase kick-drum and a voice that sounds like it belongs to a disenchanted twenty-something-year-old boy running through a world war III age. Shows are high-energy, chaotic and at times funny. The border between performer and audience blur making every show memorable.
First act: 8.30pm
