Look out for their forthcoming album ‘What’s On The Inside Has To Come Out’

No further words necessary….
I was trying to describe to someone the style of music this simply wonderful band play… The answer is in the title of this simply wonderful album. This is Kitchencore and Pete Bentham & The Dinner Ladies are out there on their own shining bright in the culinary cosmos.More
Pete Bentham & The Dinner Ladies are simply ace… This Liverpool band have released three albums since their 2009 inception. Renowned for their wry yet humourous look at everyday life, that upbeat feel with the odd swipe at society outlook shines brightly all over their songs – four of which you can hear here live in session.
Check out their new Psychedelic Village EP out now on 7″ on Antipop Records… and be sure to catch them live – website.

I first stumbled across Pete Bentham & The Dinner Ladies at Rebellion Festival in Blackpool last year – my quest at the said festival was to see as many of the 200+ bands playing over those four days as possible. The Dinner Ladies was a band I wanted to see simply because the name intrigued me and I sussed they were going to be something other than the wall to wall noisy punk rock that is the staple Rebellion diet. I was right, and despite a filthy hangover, throbbing headache and a balance disposition, this band was the antidote to all the liver killing evils of alcohol intake. (see review)
