First Call, Last Call
Tuesday 09 February 1999
FOLLOWING THE release of an eclectic mix of B-sides and rarities on their album Out Spaced, the idiosyncratic band Super Furry Animals (right) have announced dates for their forthcoming tour. The group weave their way around the country with energetic tunes such as "Something 4 the Weekend" and "Demons", as well as some new offerings. The success of their many mini- festival gigs last summer suggests that a sell-out tour is in the offing.
Civic Hall, Wolverhampton, 28 Apr; Apollo Theatre, Manchester, 29 Apr; Barrowlands, Glasgow, 30 Apr; Corn Exchange, Cambridge, 2 May. Tickets: 0115-912 9158
THE BARBERS OF SURREAL can only be described as a play which celebrates the weird and wonderful, and stretches the bounds of the imagination towards the incomprehensible. Fantastically ridiculous, the play returns to the Lyric Studio in Hammersmith for a brief run. Forkbeard Fantasy's creations, which include a chain-smoking, ex-lab rabbit and an egg shampoo which got out on the wrong side of bed, are bound to attract an intrigued audience.
Lyric Theatre Studio, London W6 (0181-741 2311) to 6 Mar
