If you’re a thorough BLM reader, you might have read a recent Thoughts piece about what makes a good band name. The Finnish band, Have You Ever Seen The Jane Fonda Aerobic VHS? might have taken the last decent name in the bag. The good news for writers like us is that it’s pretty word-consuming when you need to write to a word count with a deadline. And that’s basically how we got into them. Write the name twice and you’re halfway to filling a preview.

That and the thought process of, “What a bloody weird name, they must be brilliant.” That prediction wasn’t wrong. Pure garage punk with raw energy, Have You Ever Seen The Jane Fonda Aerobic VHS? are the squeeze of lime in your G&T, the splash of tabasco in your bloody Mary. They’re wild and careless, fierce and powerful, fire and ice. Speaking of booze, Bristol’s very own The Gin Birkins are supporting the trio. Shall we meet at the bar?
