Review: Escape To Pelirocco – 21/05/16


A cold and chilly April evening I set out with my camera etc and headed off into Brighton, destination The Haunt. I wasn’t sure what to expect. I had heard of Shonen Knife – a Japanese, 3 female, bubblegum punk outfit. The band are definitely led by Naoko, controlling the […]
