It is with much sadness that we are saying goodbye to our lead singer Charlie. She has been an inspiration to us all and her haunting voice and personality has defined The Weird Things' first gigs and debut album 'Ten Digit Freak'. Our backing singer Sam has also decided to move on to new pastures and will be embarking on some guitar exploits with the Billie Fox band. We wish both Charlie and Sam all the best with their future endeavours.
Lead vocal duties will now be carried forward by our dynamic backing singer Leila. She's already been recording vocals for the Weird Things' next album and is preparing to front the band at our next few gigs. Her first appearance as lead singer will be in Croydon on Saturday 27th October. See the Gigs page for more details.

The ranks of The Weird Things comprise of a mixed bunch of recidivists and new blood. The old hands include drummer Martin Parrott who beat the skins for Case and Blood and Roses back in the 1980s before going on to form Dirty Love and Los Pariliticos, which supported The Tubes around Europe in 2005.
Guitar player Simon Peet has toured Europe in ska band The Riffs and also played bass in Case, while Mr Jan, The Weird Things bass player, supported both The Damned and The Fall when he was the four-string guardian in Dogbonfire. Meanwhile, up front, is singer Charlie the new blood and visual and vocal strength of the band.
Elsewhere weve got old lag Dick Crippen a veteran of punk and psychobilly bands Tenpole Tudor and King Kurt. Hes been assigned guitar and production duties. And finally, on backing vocals we have Leila Parrott and Sam Beven.
