Posted: 06 May 08

Former PIRANHAS front-man Bob Grover returns to the rock pool with a toe biting new band.

DATES formed in 2005 with a mission to improve the soundtrack to their everyday existence.The line up settled quickly into a four piece band and they set about writing wry and lyrical topsy turvy music that still managed to retain a pop sensibility.

A lively batch of songs developed and DATES threw themselves headlong into gigging, resulting in quotes such as:

’ .....a band and a sound that is the result of squeezing a couple of generations of genius into a small town and combining with a potent cocktail of beer, salt and attitude. Absolutely 100% essence of Brighton.’ GrassRoots

’FIRST PARTY, FIRE AND THEFT’ is the debut release from a band determined to avoid the music business sausage machine.

The 14 track album is stuffed full of high cholesterol songs which are served in a variety of flavours. Dine out on DATES - but don’t tell your personal trainer.

LABEL: HAH! Records

’Quirky chroniclers of modern day life.... this is a band who do things on their own terms and create a guitar-driven sound that is like no one else. Really funny, twisted lyrics delivered with deadpan elan by former Piranha Bob Grover and Ric "Sympathetic Strings" Blow. ’ BrightonLiveSpace

’An enthusiastic and rapidly expanding following are being nourished on a diet of hard boiled songs with wicked, incisive lyrics backed by music with more depth than you might think while you are jumping around.’ Kath Perry

’ enjoyably witty collection of quirky tunes about the things that really matter in life: religion, shoplifting, reality Tv, missed opportunity, mobile phones, unconditional love and dodgy neightbours’ Latest 7 Magazine

’Dates set about the pub rock circuit like bulls in china shops....’
’......Scared are the things left un-trampled under hoof.’ The Source
