High Street, Lewes
Friday 16th September 2016

Having had the week on holiday in The Cotswolds, we ended our break taking a bit of a detour and an overnight stop in Lewes near the South Coast town of  Brighton. The reason? So we could grab the chance to catch Thee Sherbert Peardrop Explosion playing at Lewes Con Club.

Made up of  members from local Brighton bands, this four piece have opened for legendary Psych band, The Sonics in the not so distant past. They dress the part, they sound the part and they played a blistering set of Psych covers which included (of course) The Sonics, The Standells, and included a brilliant version of Link Wray's "Rumble".

You do get the feeling that this band are playing because they love playing, and the songs they so perfectly cover are actually personal favourites. That helps give a great atmosphere as they are enjoying things as much as their audience.

If you ever have the chance to see this band, then go see them.

Did we tell you they opened for The Sonics?

We visited a couple of the guitar and book shops whilst we were in the area, and it made a pleasant change for us to manage some quality time with a couple of the guys from the band next day. Drinking beer with good friends, talking guitars in Brighton. A very pleasant way to spend some time.
