Legendary band The White Negroes are making a rapid return to the venue of their festival-stealing show at Middlesbrough Intro - by popular demand.

The group once again confirmed their status as the best live band Teesside has ever produced with a storming set on the festival's Fly Me To The Moon Stage at the Square 1 bar.

The band so impressed the venue's manager that he booked them on the spot for another gig and now the band will make a triumphant return on Saturday, July 9.

Band spokesman ‘Sweet’ Dick Funk said: “The Square 1 venue was packed and the band blew everyone away.

"People were saying The White Negroes were the best band they had seen on the day and Square 1's manager was so impressed he booked them to return on the spot!

"Now the lads are looking forward to returning and rocking the shop once again. Don't miss it!"

The band followed up the intro festival with a second-stage headlining set at Willowman Festival last weekend alongside Top Loader and Alabama 3.

The controversial group - named after Norman Mailer’s seminal 50s beat essay - have been described as ‘stadium rock in a workingmen’s club’ and ‘like U2 on glue!’

In their two decades together the notorious band have drunk The Stranglers’ entire rider backstage at the Newcastle Heineken Music Festival, broke into the film set of the children’s TV show Teletubbies and put the head of Parlophone A&R in a ‘whitey’ when he came to sign them.

The White Negroes play Square 1 on Saturday July 9. Check out the band on Facebook and My Space.
