Stricken City – ‘Lost Art’

- - -

Stricken City is Iain Pettifer, Rebekah Raa, Kit Godfrey and Mike Hyland; their last single, ‘Tak o Tak’, drew praise from the likes of The Guardian and The Times, and received radio rotation at stations such as 6Music and Xfm. Good work, that band. Expect bigger things from the four-piece in 2009.

Catch ‘em live as follows…


17 London The Lexington

28 London Wilmington Arms

30 London Barfly
