Loose Articles – Kick Like A Girl Event

Saturday 4 February 2023

Celebrating Independent Venue Week in style, we welcome Manchester punk quartet Loose Articles ​to headline an exciting all female line up as they tour their new Kick Like A Girl project. 

Loose Articles

Specialising in discordant, hypnotic repetition, tales of boozy nights out, and radical politics, Loose Articles are a punk quartet with plenty to say. Their music speaks to all those determined to get through the age of austerity with tongue in cheek, pint in hand, and two feet firmly on the dancefloor. Plying repetition (repetition, repetition…) with ragged edges and a sardonic, sarcastic drawl delivered with fierce, in your face, punk-fueled attitude, both feminine & threatening, Loose Articles are here to make a point.

The band released their debut EP Orchid Lounge in 2019, following up with a string of standalone singles during the pandemic including ‘Up The Disco (2020), ‘Buses’ (2021) and ‘Kick Like A Girl’ (2021). 

Already heavily championed by Steve Lamacq at BBC 6music (where they’ve also seen strong support from Chris Hawkins, Tom Robinson and Amy Lamé) the band have also picked up love from John Kennedy at Radio X, and appeared on Spotify’s The Punk List
