Defiance Sessions, Glossop Labour Club
From Barnsley, The Hurriers are a 5-piece socialist band. Influenced by The Clash and The Specials, they have irresistible pop hooks and hard hitting lyrics. An inter-generational band (featuring a father and son) they were invited by Billy Bragg to play his Leftfield stage at Glastonbury. Their song “Truth and Justice” has been taken up as the unofficial anthem of the Orgreave Justice campaign.
The ‘Defiance Sessions’ are a new bi-monthly gig promoting music that beats with a revolutionary heart. The gigs are hosted by singer-songwriter Quiet Loner (a veteran of Billy Bragg’s Leftfield stage & Tolpuddle Martyrs festival) and feature singer/songwriters and bands from around the UK, that have politics, passion and protest in their music. The sessions take place at one of the oldest independent socialist clubs in the country – Glossop Labour Club.
Doors 7pm. Music starts at 730 and the band will be finished at 10pm allowing people to chat to the band afterwards, listen to some great music, share ideas and get the last train out of Glossop (10.38pm)
