The Violets have been doing a few gigs over in the States, which were lots of fun, and are now looking forward to playing at Alt-Fest on the 17th August….. you can get a 10% discount on tickets by using the code theMARCHviolets. All details on the website…. http://www.marchviolets.com

Also, I have just begun a new series of t-shirts based on my artwork over the years. Kind of retro. There will be various groovy stuff from old posters and record sleeves and stuff you never got to see! The first one is based on the CROW BABY cover.

If you want one in your size you can pre-order it in the next week or so from http://uberviolet.co.uk/violets%20more%20stuff.htm

After that I will be printing them and you will have to take pot luck, and I’ll be on to the next design.

Please tell your friends!

Cheers & see you at Alt-Fest

Quite complimentary, Made Glorious, the album you made possible, is up for an award on terrarelicta.com.

If you fancy giving us a vote please head over. Let’s see if we can give Black Sabbath a kicking! Who’d have thought it!

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….

Think Global … Friends of The Earth. And in this time of ridiculous greed, our planet certainly needs all the friends she can get.

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.

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.

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.


Play loud, play purple.
