Ginger Wildheart and Richie Ramone set for Camden Rocks

Ginger Wildheart

Ginger Wildheart and Richie Ramone have both been added to this year’s Camden Rocks Festival lineup.

Also added to the bill are Jettblack, Menswear, Anti Nowhere League and Brawlers.

Said Ginger of the news: “Last year’s Camden Rocks was the best fun I can imagine ever having without the use of straps and rabbits. I can’t wait to play again this year. I’ve had a word with the police and they’ve said it’s fine as long Chris McCormack accepts responsibility for me. See you at the bar, motherfuckers. I’ll be the naked one covered in mud.”

Adds Richie Ramone: “Camden with its killer vibe, is always my favourite spot when I am in London. This year is extra special because the band is playing the Camden Rocks Festival, and I couldn’t be happier. It has always been on my wish list, and I can’t wait to hang out and see a bunch of cool bands, party, and hook up with old friends. Fuck yeah!”

This year’s festival takes place at locations throughout Camden on the 30th of May. Tickets are available now from SeeTickets.

Watch! Ginger Wildheart and Courtney Love release video for “Honour”

Ginger and Courtney Honour video crop

Ginger Wildheart and Courtney Love have released a video for their duet, “Honour.”

The song was originally released as part of Ginger’s G.A.S.S. subscription based fan club, through which members are given access to exclusive songs, merchandise, videos and other features. A free version of the service, G.A.S.S-Lite, was announced yesterday.

Ginger spent a significant amount of time in 2014 touring as part of Courtney Love’s live band, and told Last Year’s Girl recently: “She was also kind enough to let me film the video at her recent sold out Sydney show. Wait until you hear it, she sounds like Celebrity Skin era Courtney. She nails it so good. As a fan you’re going to love it.”

Ginger played a blinding set at his inaugural Halloween Hootenanny event at The Slade Rooms in Wolverhampton back in October, with support sets from Oaf, Tropical Contact, The Scaramanga Six, Baby Chaos and Eureka Machines. He is set to play his ‘Oh Fuck I’m 50’ Birthday Bash on the 17th of December at The Forum in London. Tickets are on sale now.

Originally premiered via Classic Rock, you can check out the video for “Honour” below:

Make sure you then head on over to iTunes to buy the track which is out now!
