New Rhodes Get Bounced - For Talking[?]





You heard them on the Player with their charmer "I Wish I Was You", now UK indie upstarts New Rhodes can check another task off their "things to do before I die" list having just been kicked off the final two dates of their tour with shoegaze godfathers House Of Love... for talking! In a strange sequence of events, the Bristol boys were advised their final two shows supporting HoL in London and Reading were off after a strange altercation at their Colchester gig. During the House Of Love set, members of New Rhodes went to the back of the venue to talk to some fans, reports drownedinsound. During the gig they were told to keep it down by a female in the audience who verbally made her feelings known after the set. The band stood their ground and told the lady they were away from the crowd (and the stage) and could see no problem. Unfortunately, said female turned out to be the nightmare wife of House Of Love singer/songwriter Guy Chadwick and now the band find themselves with two gaps in their calendar. House of Love it is not, more like House of My Wife Wears The Pants. One more reason to like New Rhodes. For all our UK readers, you can relax a bit. The New Rhodes gigs at Leeds, The Faversham on February 12th and London Infinity on February 22nd are unaffected.
