The Abstraction is the new band fronted by The Weather Prophets' Pete Astor, along with his friends James Hoare (Ultimate Painting), Rose Keeler-Schaffeler (KEEL HER) and Juan Jacinto. This trip to Southend is their first gig (or close to anyway). Don't miss it.
Pete Astor is a bloody legend (mate). He was in Creation Records darlings The Loft and The Weather Prophets, amongst many other great bands. You may have seen him play in Southend earlier this year, when we brought him to town. If not, now's your chance to make amends as he's playing the shop, for free, on a Saturday afternoon (no excuses). He also has a great new record out in February, which you can order HERE Facebook Event Page - HERE
