Dead Men Walking: Striding into York, Hull and Leeds

KIRK Brandon follows up his December 6 appearance fronting Spear Of Destiny at The Crescent with a return to the York community venue on February 6, this time with Dead Men Walking at 7.30pm.

Group founding member Brandon will be joined by The Ruts’ rhythm section of Segs Jennings and Dave Ruffy on acoustic bass, percussion and vocals, along with Jake Burns, legendary frontman of Belfast punk band Stiff Little Fingers, who will be bringing his guitar, songs and stories.

All members of the touring band contributed to Dead Men Walking’s 2021 album Freedom – It Ain’t On The Rise. Their 15-date January and February tour will be their first live fixtures since the release, taking in further Yorkshire gigs at The Social, Hull, on February 1 and Leeds Irish Centre on February 8.

The set will feature raw, stripped-back interpretations of the repertoire of Brandon’s bands Theatre Of Hate and Spear of Destiny, The Ruts and Stiff Little Fingers, complemented by a few surprise cover versions and a song or two from DMW’s album.
