Exeter’s finest punk ‘n’ roll/mod revival band The Computers have a long run of shows coming up, seeing out the rest of 2015 in style. All dates are listed below.
At the end 2013, things have settled even farther into their niche. When Real Gone was born, the intent was to write reviews of albums that ended up unloved in cut-out bins – the ultimate guide to creating a brilliant record collection on a budget. Pretty soon, a few DIY bands got interested and PR guys got interested and the focus began to change. It would have been churlish to turn these new opportunities away…and by including reviews of independent and smaller bands, RG slowly expanded its readership.
The first two releases from The Computers showed a band firmly rooted in garage-based rock rock. In the three years between their debut EP (2008’s ‘You Can’t Hide From…’) and their first full length release (2011’s ‘This Is The Computers’), although still raucous, the band had tempered the rawest end of their sound with a hefty dose of punk ‘n’ roll. That shift was hugely influenced by the album’s producer, Rocket From The Crypt’s John Reis, bringing a new dimension to the band’s sound.
