former members of Daisy Chainsaw and Queenadreena bring their new outfit The Dogbones to Derby for a gig at The Old Bell Inn on Sadler Gate with Matlock outfit Causeway Lane as one of the support bands.

The Dogbones’ first Derby gig is on Friday, August 5. The band is made up of former members of Queenadreena, Wendykurk, Daisy Chainsaw and Mediæval Bæbes. The Dogbones’ sound has been described as “early My Bloody Valentine as a Daisy Chainsaw cover band, downing shots and playing knife games with The Cramps.”

The band were formed as a collaboration between Queenadreena guitarist Crispin Gray and former Wendykurk frontwoman and Queenadreena bassist Nomi Leonard. The Dogbones play a mix of the darker side of garage rock, punk rock and grunge.

Support at the gig comes from Nottingham based all-girl punk/grunge band The Smears, who have been writing and making music together for almost seven years. The Smears are a hard working band whose live shows are fun.

Opening the night will be Matlock-based Causeway Lane who have been making waves on the local alternative/rock circuit over the last 12 months.
