PERFORMING at The Venue, Abbey Street, Derby, on Tuesday, February 1, is Spear of Destiny at 7.30pm.
The band formed in 1983 after the demise of Kirk Brandon’s post punk iconic rockers Theatre of Hate. Brandon had also, before TOH, been the main man in The Pack.
Brandon and Spear of Destiny have now notched up 12 studio albums.
The current Spear line up sees Brandon joined by Craig Adams (The Mission, Sisters of Mercy and The Cult) on bass, Adrian Portas (New Model Army & Sex Gang Children) on guitar with new drummer Mike Kelly sitting behind the kit as Robin Goodridge has left to re-join Gavin Rosendale in BUSH. Kirk also has the services of The Mission’s Simon Hinkler on keyboards.
Tickets for The Venue gig are £10. Visit www.imemusic.co.uk for more information.
