ARCHIE AND THE BUNKERS ‘HI FI ORGAN PUNK’ COMES TO LONDON – EUROPEAN TOUR UPDATE
THE CLEVELAND ‘HI FI ORGAN PUNK’ COMBO’S SELF-TITLED ALBUM AVAILABLE NOW
Archie and the Bunkers, which consists of teenage brothers Emmett and Cullen O’Connor on keys and vocals, formed in 2013. They are a musical anomaly in that the compositions they write are refreshingly new, but they draw their influences from classic musicians and movies of the past. 2015 has been a year that have seen the band propel from a mostly word of mouth local band to national and international acclaim.
The band have just finished Paris, Utrecht, and Groningen and will be playing the world famous Club Paradiso tonight in Amsterdam, and then on to Antwerp before the much anticipated Hipsville a go a go festival performance in Bordon, UK.
The second leg will kick off in Spain with five shows starting in Madrid at the Wurlitzer Ballroom which we think will be one (of many) of those ” I was there” performances for the Spanish and European audiences to always remember, followed by dates in Vigo, Oviedo, Santander, Pamplona, and San Sebastian.
After they return from the sun in Spain, we can now reveal, that they will cap their adventure in London, at a very, very special Dirty Water Club on Sunday,May 22nd at Nambucca, with spirited label mates The Cavemen ( NZ) and Brighton fellow sibling duo Sons . Advance tickets HERE.

The Dirty Water Club started in October 1996 in the Tufnell Park neighbourhood of north London, at a venue called The Boston. The club’s name is derived from The Standells’ 1966 hit ‘Dirty Water’ which glorifies the US city of Boston, Massachusetts.
Past performers have included The White Stripes (voted by Q Magazine as one of the top 10 gigs of all time, Mojo one of the top 30 and Kerrang one of the top 100!), The Gories, NOBUNNY, Kid Congo Powers (from the Cramps), The Fleshtones, Billy Childish, Radio Birdman, The Dirtbombs, Thee Michelle Gun Elephant, The 188.8.131.52’s, The Horrors and The Brian Jonestown Massacre to name just a few. The club has also seen some original ’60s performers, such as The Monks, ? and the Mysterians, Kim Fowley, Sky Saxon, GONN, Michael Davis of the MC5 and more grace its stage.
Their in-house record label, Dirty Water Records, is one of the leading garage/beat/(real) R&B labels in the world.
