THE FABULOUS BORDELLOS
The Fabulous Bordellos were formed out of a need to play gutsy music with some attitude and get it out to the people. Initially the concentration was on new wave music which took the band in a certain direction, taking us to the likes of Paul Weller and The Jam, this lead us swiftly on to The Who and the Small Faces. It seemed that with the Mod avenue the band was travelling on we had found our niche. The 80s Mod revival has provided yet more material and with our present line up of Dave on guitar, JC on drums, Nev on bass and Grant belting out lead vocals, we have a versitile and experienced band. The Fabulous Bordellos have played all around the country; from Nottingham Boat Club and Mansfield down to Earls Court London (British Beer Fest), we have supported 'From the Jam', 'Big Country' and '9 Below Zero' amongst others and we look forward to seeing you soon!
