on Broco, formed from out of a Bedford high school are a curious and fascinating beast of a band. Starting off with a punk rock sound, their new

album Automatic has shifted to a dancey, summery 80’s vibe – I defy you not to cut a rug to it. Tey’re touring the UK in a very novel way this time around..but I’ll let Rob tell you about that special treat. Suffice to say their fans will be chuffed to pieces with this genius idea.

You’re coming up to Norwich to do two dates at Open on subsequent days. What’s that all about? It’s an idea we had about a year ago. We were always disappointing people who wanted to hear album tracks that they loved when we played live, so we said that if one day we had the opportunity to do both our albums on the same tour we would. Now everyone knows the new album, we haven’t played the songs from the first album for a while, so we thought we would do a two album tour where the first night we play the first album priority in its entirety and then the second night we play the second album in its entirety. It enables everyone to hear the songs they want to hear. I’ve never heard of a band doing that before. I’ve heard of

people doing anniversary shows, playing their best selling album in full, but this is a new concept for me. It’s great that you’re doing this now and not waiting for 20 years to do it! Yeah, totally. I mean we’ve seen bands do that where they haven’t played an album live in like 20 years but we thought we can’t be bothered to do that. We don’t want to wait 10 years to do that so let’s just do it now! It’s such a treat for your fans isn’t it? I think it’s really important to listen to your fans. We are one of those bands who do like to listen to their fans, you know, we read all the tweets. We always ask what they want to hear and when you’ve only got 45 minutes to an hour then you don’t have time to play all the songs the fans want to
