Pop Will Eat Itself, aka PWEI, aka the Poppies stormed on to the late 80’s UK scene with their high energy, industrial tinged dance / rock anthems. They shared many a stage with such musical contemporaries as Ned’s Atomic Dustbin, Jesus Jones, and The Wonder Stuff. However, it was their sample driven, biting social satire that set them apart from the others and they quickly gained a rabid worldwide following. Their relentless live shows and groundbreaking artwork also solidified their position as innovators.
During the late 80’s and early 90’s Australia & NZ were like a second home for the Poppies playing a stack of incredible shows that are still talked about to this day. Now in August and September 2014, the Poppies will be making their long overdue return to New Zealand for the first time in two decades!
If you were there last time, you know what to expect. If you weren’t you’re in for one of the best nights of the year and one that will be talked about for the next two decades!
