A PAT ON THE BACK

Posted 10th October 2013   ·   Permalink
You guys are indeed rather lovely, and today should be feeling the warm glow from giving to good causes. At the very start of this record breaking saga of a pledge we picked 3 charities to donate to…

Think Local … Cloth Cat Music Charity in Leeds, which does excellent work teaching all aspects of music (including how great it is just to get involved) in an effort to improve people’s lives. With most of their funding being stopped over the last 3 years every donation really counts….
http://www.clothcatleeds.org.uk

Think Global … Friends of The Earth. And in this time of ridiculous greed, our planet certainly needs all the friends she can get.
http://www.foe.co.uk

Think Ahead … Macmillan Cancer Support. A charity particularly close to our hearts, and one that most families rely on at some point in their lives.
http://www.macmillan.org.uk

And the rather nice folks at Pledge Music are right now sending off some well-needed cheques to these organisations. And it is your money! So give yourself a pat on the back and modestly tell your friends you do a bit of work for charidee. And thank you.

FINAL CALL OF THE SERAPHIM

Posted 06th October 2013   ·   Permalink
Greetings.

There are 3 more days to order the Seraphim t-shirts guaranteed in your size. Especially relevant if you fancy Ladies sizes, Kids sizes, and Hoodies. You can pick up at gigs for a major discount.

The band will be starting the print run on the 10th October, to ensure shirts are ready for the first gigs on the Made Glorious tour... Hebden Bridge Trades Club on Saturday the 26th October and Preston Continental on Sunday 27th (with Flesh For Lulu, The Inca Babies and John Hyatt from The Three Johns).

All the info on this, and the tour, and the lyrics to the album are available on the new official Violets website at www.marchviolets.com

Lovely.

← More news

The March Violets were a great band...

...A really great band. They were labelmates with The Sisters of Mercy, yet darker and infinitely more messed up than them, and through constant gigging they became integral to the whole Leeds/M62 scene in the early/mid 1980s. We loved them, John Peel loved them, and we assume you loved them too. And now they're back!

The March Violets

Sadly, there are still very few websites about The March Violets. Which is where we come in. You and us.

Can you help?

We'd like your help in building this site into the largest resource for March Violets information & paraphernalia on the internet.

Do you have any news clippings, photos. memorabilia, or details about the band that we don't? If so, we'd like you to let us know here. You will be credited in full for anything we use on the site, and you will have our undying gratitude.

Thanks.

Play loud, play purple.
