August saw The Exiles headline a fundraiser for Carlisle Refugee Action Group at The Old Fire Station in Carlisle.
Manchester rockers Partisan and Carlisle thrash merchants Censored delivered great sets to the OFS crowd.
The Exiles and everyone involved are proud to support such a worthy cause as CRAG.
In other news, after bouts of illness (Simon stupidly stopped smoking in the spring) the Exiles are set finish mixing their second album by mid-September.
More news on that—and the album’s very special guests—soon…
Meanwhile, have a butchers at these sketches of Simon, Tef and Debs by OFS resident artist (and ex-Twigg) Marcer Campbell.
