This Saturday we are proud to welcome as our pre-match band Loose Articles, whose Twitter account @LooseArticles says they are: ’Feminine & Threatening. Working & Class’. Can’t improve on that description so I shan’t try. If you want to know more in advance though, have a look & a listen to their ’Money for booze’ here:
