London's Hybrid Street Punkers DJEVARA Rev Up For Summer

Warm summer greetings from Djevara, and it certainly is warm where I'm sitting, procrastinating to avoid large piles of unattractive work long due, looking forward to
returning back to what feels most natural. It's been a while since
we've been in touch, so I hope you're all well. The BNP is being voted into parliament, Roma are being literally chased out of Northern Ireland, the bottom has fallen out of the barrel of 21st century capitalism, tension is at a lifetime high in the city and meanwhile the government has been caught with its hand in the till and eyes completely off the ball. Never has the message seemed so vital. Djevara is (once
more) coming out of the wilderness of hibernation and back in to
action. With Malcolm Gayner covering the drum stool for live shows
after the departure of Sandro for his own personal/family reasons,
we've already hit Germany for a quick spell and are now approaching
our serious return to the UK gigging scene. We're kicking off with a
mini-tour this coming weekend, starting with a free show in a video
store in South London (Live at the Apollo — Home entertainment in an empty shop) with Crumbling Ghost
and She Makes War. Of course, in typical Djev'-Curse fashion at the
last moment our gigs on Friday 26th and Sunday 28th have been pulled,
so we're looking for replacements anywhere and everywhere - email us
if there's a slot. Have band, have van, will travel - everything
considered (email us! at band@djevara.co.uk).

We are also now up on Facebook so join the group here:

NEW MUSIC COMING (KINDA) SOON:

Tentative plans are in place to record a new EP next month to
document the material written with Sandro during the last couple of
years, with a view to release later in the year. Expect much
progressive hardcore rock rooted in passion, dipped in sincerity and
boiled on a high heat. Among the songs planned for inclusion are
popular live tracks "Once More With Feeling" and "Rising Tide Of The
Disconnected", as well as previously unheard "Lines In The Sand",
"Jesus vs Mohammed (Ali)" and "View From A Glass House". I wouldn't
usually like to tell you what to expect, but I imagine it'll make the
last record sound like Amy Winehouse's BBC Radio request show. Expect
some ear-bashing to be hurtling its way towards you soon.

UPCOMING GIGS:

As mentioned above, we're are returning to the live realm where we
belong. One of the highlights will be the gig at the Apollo on
Thursday - inspired local artists took over a video store for a month
and have been hosting artwork, presentations, photos, workshops, crazy
golf and gigs. Brilliant. The most important show by far though will
be 9TH JULY at 333 Basement, Old Street in London as it sees the
launch of GENIN LIVES!, a series of events and live shows being put on
by our label GENIN RECORDS to kick-start the scene (see below for more
info). The ingenius idea (if we say so ourselves) is that it pays to
support - a ticket gains one entry to the first show for just 5, but
then also enables one to enter the next show for 3, and then all
subsequent shows in the season for just 2 a pop. Supporting
exciting underground music has never been so easy... or kind on the
wallet! We expect to see all you beautiful London folk down there!

DJEVARA PROJECTS:

Djevara's world is about much more than just the band. Here's what's
happening with some of our other projects:

GENIN RECORDS / DJEVARA MUSIC

After the release of Elephant vs Leopard's fantastic record
"Safariland" (available from Genin Records / Djevara Music as well as all good
online retailers), there's plenty more exciting developments. New
music is imminent from The Super Nashwan Kids (myspace.com/tsnk) with
their truly astounding new album "No Idols" due for release in the
not-too-distant future. You will be astounded at the quality, and the
clever among you will be making your way down to the pre-release party
(100 Club on 3rd July) were you can pick up one of only 100
pre-release copies. You've been warned! We're also looking forward
to The Display Team's new record. Some of you may remember these
progressive punk rockers as "Mumrah". Well, whatever the name, they
are truly playing some outstanding stuff at the moment, and we expect
their new record to hit about October. What that space. There are
also some very promising rumbles from the Pigshackle camp, though it's
too early to talk about that.

So, onto the biggest news: the launch of GENIN LIVES!, a new series
of live events which will see GENIN RECORDS hosting some truly kick
ass shows in venues around London. We won't promise you'll like
everything you see, but we do promise that the shows will be memorable
and exciting, showcasing vital and exuberant new music that we think
you simply HAVE to hear or see at least once, and where the community
of people will be awesome, where artists and audience are treated with
the respect they deserve by the venue and where the barriers between
audience are broken once and for all. Anyone who has been to Malcfest
will know the kind of vibe we are trying to create. And, as explained
before, we want it to be as easy as possible for everyone to be
involved, hence the 5-3-2 ticket system. Even in a credit
crunch there is no reason to feel excluded. We're very excited and
hope you'll join us to build something genuinely true and powerful and
amazing. The first shows are 9th July and 30th July, with more to be
announced soon.

Tickets available from Genin Records / Djevara Music, there are Facebook events up
(find via the Djevara or Genin Records groups). Tickets also
available from WeGotTickets - Your Online Box Office :

AND FINALLY...
Thanks for all your support! Really looking forward to seeing you
all again soon. Apologies for any spelling/grammatical errors - I can

of lack of time.

Peace,
Bass & DJEVARA
