LIMERICK lost boys The Hitchers make a return to live action for a short tour in November.
The Hitchers released two albums and a slew of EPs in the late ’90s. The Limerick quartet came to the attention of legendary BBC DJ John Peel who championed the band, The band featured in his famous end of year poll and were brought into BBC studios for a recording session that still gets played on BBC 6 Music today.
Though The Hitchers officially de-mobbed in 2001 they have occasionally reformed for one off shows, and media interest in the band is rekindled biennially around the time of World Cups and European Championships which led to The Guardian readers voting ‘Strachan’ the “greatest football song EVER”.
Limerick promoters Seoda Shows present The Hitchers with special guests Cooper (NL) at Kasbah Social Club, Dolan’s on Friday November 17. Other tour dates will be announced.
