Transylfechan’s Irma Vep heads out on a UK tour this week, starting tomorrow (Monday 1st August) at The Castle in Manchester. It’s a solo tour dubbed ‘The No Handshake Blues’ and sees Edwin taking in the urban delights of Cambridge, London, Brighton, York, Bangor, Newcastle, Glasgow, Bath and Leeds.
To celebrate this fact, Irma Vep have also released a new album of scraps they’ve found lying around their squat. Titled ‘The Washing Up’ you can only stream this off their Bandcamp page; should you wish to buy a CD copy then it’s available for sale at these forthcoming shows. And is worth it alone for the excellent 11 minute session version of King King performed on Marc Riley’s 6Music Show in April.
