Penguins Go Pop are playing their final gig of the year at one of their favourite venues The Louis Marchesi in Tombland Norwich on Sunday 3rd December.
The gig from 7-10pm and free entry will be their last of the year before taking a 4-month break to record and write songs for the follow up to their highly acclaimed debut album ’20th Century Pop’.
Penguins Go Pop originally formed in the late 80s and were together until the early 90s building up a strong local following for their catchy songs with quirky stories, mostly from the pen of Richard Penguin. People joined, left, and returned, but nobody expected the band to reform in 2013 or for a 14 track album of 20th century songs to emerge in 2018. Alongside three of the original band, vocalist/percussionist Richard, guitarist Mark Wyatt, and drummer Andy Mickleborough, siblings bassist Pete Moore, and keyboardist, violinist and backing vocalist Liz Moore joined the penguin ranks in January 2016 and the band oddly enough for penguins, flew. Andy remains an honorary Penguin playing the occasional gig but Dave Dowdeswell-Allaway can be found behind the kit nowadays. Their debut album was recently re-issued and received some glowing reviews.
