Drugstore play rare Yorkshire gig

Drugstore have recorded with Radiohead’s Thom Yorke and now they’re playing their first gig North of Watford since 2002 in Hebden Bridge this Friday.

Led by Brazilian singer-songwriter and bassist Isabel Monteiro they played at a protest in London which called for the extradition of the disgraced Chilean General Augusto Pinochet.  Their song “El President”, a duet Thom Yorke, is dedicated to former Chilean president Salvador Allende who was killed in a 1973 coup in which Pinochet played a key role.

Drugstore have toured with the Jesus & Mary Chain, Tindersticks, and had their songs covered by Jeff Buckley. Now after a seven year hiatus, and following a sold-out show at the ICA in London, Drugstore return with an exclusive Yorkshire show at Hebden Bridge’s Trades Club.

The band spent three weeks in January 2011, at a remote studio recording material for a comeback album, Anatomy, which was released last summer.
