More Dates For March 2000 Announced - Posted 22 Feb 2000Cribbed from the main serpico site:
Feburary Saturday 26th - West End Centre, Aldershot
We are the main support to 'Citizen Fish', first band on will be 'Cephas'. Tickets are £5 and we'll hit the stage around 9:45. We are currently working hard writing new songs and hope we'll have at least 2 newies to play at this show. We are breaking in 'Don't lean on me' which is the last song of the set just now, and as soon as we've learnt the lyrics off by heart we'll be trying out 'Little Star'. The regular 30 minute set time is getting harder and harder to stick to!
March Friday 3rd - Reckless Engineer, Bristol
It's on Temple Way opposite Templemeads train station and entry is £2. We are supporting 'Zoomer' and will probably be on about 9pm-ish.
March Wednesday 8th - The Hobbit, Southampton
'The Hobbit' is on a road called Bevois Valley in the Portswood area. We'll be supporting 'Toxy' who feature ex members of 'Social Distortion'. It's £3.50 to get in, 50p off for the usual concesions. Don't know what time we're on, but call 0411 785 732 for more details if you're into it.
March Friday 24th - Little Backyard, London
Played here before a few months ago and we've been asked back! It's under the Fitz and Firkin pub that's just by the Great Portland Street tube station. We're on first at 8:45 and the headliners are called 'Season'. It's £4 with a flyer (which hopefully will be on the site soon). The other interesting thing about this gig is that it is being recorded for the club's own web site and a few songs from each band will be put out the night after.
Serpico have announced that they will be playing the Exeter Cavern Club during November but are looking for somewhere to stay overnight. Ian says:
In November we will be playing the Exeter cavern Club is there anybody
If you can help, mail me and i'll pass the details on.
Also, sometime next week (1st week of October) the official Serpico site should open, there's not much there at the moment but it will all be happening at http://www.serpico.co.uk. Seeing as it will be run by the band themselves, it should be updated a bit more often than this site is :)
FRIDAY 1ST OCTOBER. OXFORD. The Point, Serpico 8.45 pm, then Porn Show, Crazyhead.
SATURDAY 2ND OCTOBER. BRISTOL. LOUISIANA'S Serpico 8.45 pm. Main Band Zoomer. - I will be at this one, so hopefully I will get some pics. Also, if you can, I recommend you get hold of Zoomer's album 'hello lover'. They are a pretty good band fronted by a guy called Spider, who amongst other things has roadied for the Rosehips, done monitors for the megas and been the frontman in The Seers and Bonesaw. There is a tiny page with a pic of the album here

News for 24 May 1999
" Joining the Jellys at the West End Centre in a long anticipated relaunch were Serpico. The Farnborough four, fronted by former Mega City 4 singer/guitarist Wiz, made a useful debut and can confidently expect to move on to bigger and better things. What did they sound like? well, much as you'd expect with linchpin Wiz at the controls - like an updated, 1999 version of MC4, and that ain't a bad recomendation."
Also, there is another up and coming gig, again at the West-
End Center, on Saturday 5th June, this time supporting 'A' who are touring a new single. Simon reckons it 'Should be a blinding gig, not to missed'.
News for 2 April 1999

well, there you go, if anybody goes to this, could you send a mini review? just a few words on what they sound like, eternal fame awaits you if you do :) cheers, phil.
