Brum Punks Xmas Bash Tickets

Formed in 1979 in Birmingham England, playing early gigs with the likes of GBH (who we still gig with today) Dead Wretched and the Varukers. The band shared the stage in the early days with bands like GBH, Exploited, Dead Kennedys, Crass, the Pogues, The Beat, and all the UK82 bands of the time. The Drongos first single was a DIY release in 1981 called Hope and Glory. The band also recorded two ep's on Inferno records in 1982 - Deaths a Career and Eternity which actually charted at around 47 in the national UK charts - unfortunately nobody in the band bothered reading music press at the time or listened to radio one (we were the first punks in our town to have our own flats/ homes so everyone came back to our place to get wrecked - we didn't need much encouragement to join in) so to cut a long story short - we never knew until our then guitarist Anton joined in 1999 that we sold any records and we of course never made any money and got ripped off like every band on Inferno records. The band split in 1985 - reformed in 88 - carried on and off until the mid 90's never actually splitting up but not doing anything either. The band kicked things off again for real in 1999 for a gig with GBH and the UK Subs(thanks to Jock from GBH getting Dek Drongo drunk and persuading him to reform the band)... Tommy Drongo on vocals (is the only original member), Dek (who joined in July 82) on Bass, Anton on Guitar and Kimbo on Drums- this line up recorded the bands first two albums in 2003s "Barcode Generation" and 2005s "Hotline to Hades" (Hotline was also released in the U.S by SOS records). We then released a single in 1990 on Renegade records "This Town/Cool Baby" (once again ripped off) followed by an ep "Wasted" in 2001 on Intimidation records. 2007 saw the release of a 12" Singles and Rarities album "Deaths a Career" on Italian label Pure Punk, along with Rob MDM joining the band as 2nd guitarist and a 7"ep called "Dance when Maggie's Dead" on their own DFE Records...
