May 30, 2012 by

It’s been a busy year for Runaround Kids – and it’s not quite June yet. Whilst we’ve covered the band quite in the last several months, there’s always something new to say, whether it’s a gig, festival appearance, or a new release. This time it’s the latter, a split EP with Dublin band We Are […]

To celebrate the release of their new single on 16 April, Wakey trio Runaround Kids come round our way for a gig at Nation of Shopkeepers.

Dinosaur Jr. Pixies. Built to Spill. Definitely Built to Spill. I’m fairly confident that all of these bands are ones that Wakefielders Imp listen to incessantly. On a string of EPs, their latest being Sewerpop! (How The Castle Was Stormed) which was released on December, they’ve bridged the gap between new England sounds and the […]
