BIG FIGURE PROMOTIONS present: A SMALL WONDER RECORDS evening – the mighty Punishment Of Luxury headline a special gig dedicated to Pete Stennett who ran Small Wonder in Walthamstow, London, and released records by quite a few north east bands. Punilux,Murder the Disturbed, and The Proles will be joined by jazz punk afficianados The Cravats, a solo performance from Pete Fender of the Fatal Microbes and Anthrax UK. Somewhere in there Keith Newman will interview some of those involved and how they came to have records released on the label. It promises to be a special evening indeed.
This will be Punishment of Luxury’s first appearance in Middlesbrough since 1980 though they have played two gigs in Stockton to enthusiastic audiences. The Cravats have also played in Stockton but to our knowledge never played in Boro. It’s time to put the record straight.
Pete Fender was an original member of the Fatal Microbes and is the son of Vi Subversa of The Poison Girls and he will be travelling up from Brighton with Anthrax UK. Closer to home Murder The Disturbed originated from Washington, Tyne & Wear whilst The Proles came from Fencehouses, County Durham.
