We are extremely proud to present one of our favourite groups of all time, in conversation and playing a short live set.

The Raincoats’ Gina Birch, Ana da Silva and Shirley O’Loughlin will celebrate the launch of 33 1/3 book 'The Raincoats' along with author Jenn Pelly. We will be hosting a reading and Q+A event with Gina, Ana and collaborator Shirley O'Loughlin on October 20th. The group will also be performing a short set at this event.

In 1979, from the basement of a London squat, the Raincoats reinvented what punk could be. They had a violin player. They came from Portugal, Spain, and England. Their anarchy was poetic. Working with the iconic Rough Trade Records at its radical beginnings, they were the first group of punk women to actively call themselves feminists. In this short book – the first on the Raincoats – author Jenn Pelly tells the story of the group's audacious debut album, which Kurt Cobain once called “wonderfully classic scripture.” Pelly builds on rare archival materials and extensive interviews with members of the Raincoats, Sleater-Kinney, Bikini Kill, Hole, Scritti Politti, Gang of Four, and more. She draws formal inspiration from the collage-like The Raincoats itself to explore this album's magic, vulnerability, and strength.
