We had a wonderful tour with Ricky Warwick and the Fighting Hearts and it was fantastic to make new friends as well as seeing some familiar faces in the audience every night.
Our final show of the year was Punx Against Cancer at Warehouse 23 in Wakefield on 3rd December and along with GBH, Drongos For Europe, Abrasive Wheels, The Lurkers, Infa Riot, Billy Club, Hospital Food, 3 Stone Monkey, Septic Psychos and Guttersluts we helped to raise a large wedge for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Thanks to everyone involved with organising the event and to those who made up the fantastic audience, you warmed our cockles big time!
On 7th December Beki shared a stage with the Vive Le Rockers All Stars at Camden Black Heart. Guest musos and warblers included Paul-Ronney Angel, Slim, Rev Gavin Smith , Gary Voodoo, Glenn Matlock, Eugene Butcher, Nicky Forbes JC Carroll, Jim Jones, Slim Jim Phantom and the wonderful Knox.
Our habitual irreverent limited edition Yuletide EP was released on 9th December.
The CD features a cover of Bob Seger’s ’Sock it to me Santa’, Vice Squad roadie Cliff Van Halen’s version of the Cliff Richard classic ‘Mistletoe and Wine’, 2 new Vice Squad songs ‘Fresh Air’ and ‘Beautiful Toy’, and just in case anyone doubted our insanity a Black Metal version of John Shuttleworth’s ‘Two Margarines’.
