The Old Blue Last, London
30th Apr 2006
With The Violets on a seaside exhibition, Jamie was called in to curate the Angular Disco in their absence. Vichy headlined with sterling sets from The Low Edges, The Resistance and DJs Johnny Valentine & Rupa Chawda. Live debut for Little Fishes Part III.
Barden's Boudoir, London
22nd Apr 2006
Vichy played at the opening night of the Delete Yourself club in Stoke Newington, along with midlands eight-piece the Hellset Orchestra. The DJ put on a track from Novelty Rock by Denim as soon as our set ended. We think this is a good thing.
Buffalo Bar, London
8th Apr 2006
We sauntered across London to inhale the unclean air of Highbury and play the Guided Missile night. Headlining were the caterwauling sassenach wretches Bis, along with trailer trash chic of Piney Gir and We Are The Physics. Two new songs were lavished upon anyone listening, Bothered and The Exterminating Angel Of Greek Street.
Portland Arms, Cambridge
6th Apr 2006
The venue was familiar but this was our début appearance at the avant-glitch night Bad Timing. Almost four years after our first ever gig found us supporting Um in Cambridge, we once more supported Um in Cambridge- there's nothing like progress. Laptop whizzkid Usedtobecool kicked things off and Winter Forever received its first public airing. Intro music: Gene Pitney, Backstage I'm Lonely
Port Mahon Alehouse, Oxford
11th Mar 2006
At the behest of the Dangerous Wildlife night, we made our first visit to "the other place", and played upstairs in a pub with Neil's Children. Engaging support from local acts Life With Bears and Socks & Shoes. We heartily recommend the Private Shop on Cowley Road to anyone planning a visit of their own.
Portland Arms, Cambridge
6th Feb 2006
The obligatory bi-annual REPEAT/Angular collaboration in which we appeared alongside The Violets, on tour to plug their Descend single, The Resistance and The Fucks. Live debut for The Greatest Gift Of All, our U2-rivalling hymn to humanitarianism.
Keith Talent Gallery, London
8th Jan 2006
A last-minute appearance at the Hostel sculpture exhibition in Hackney, in front of a crowd of good-natured Barleys. Support from The Scam and brass-heavy 50s rockers Shimmy Rivers. Owing to the impromptu nature of the evening, Jamie ended up doing the sound. With hilarious consequences.
Soho Arts Club, London
4th Jan 2006
Returning to London after a lengthy absence, we played at the last night of lesbian rock & roll club Rox Ya Box. In support was the magnificent Lorraine Bowen, singing starry-eyed ballads about fish fingers. Celebrity attendees included Jimmy Saville, who would have been hearing My Mail-Order Bride for the first time.
The Louisiana, Bristol
13th Oct 2005
We did our bit for the John Peel Nostalgia Industry by playing one of a great many Peel day gigs on our first visit to the South West, at the behest of the Save Your Wisdom Teeth club. Also playing were Swedish slackers the Envelopes and power trio the IK+. Whilst carrying our load back to the station the next day, we were stopped by a baglady who opined that we were "a pair of f*ckin' losers".
