The cockney geezers who are in their seventies first surfaced on YouTube a little over a year ago with their music video ‘Shut Ya Mouth’ and instantly went viral. Since then they’ve been giving the grime scene a run for it’s money with a string of absolute bangers.

With lines like ‘I’ve had more scraps than you’ve had hot dinners’ and ‘Ain’t here for the porks and pies‘ I reckon the grime pensioners are the guys to bridge the disconnect between the older and younger generations.

Catch Pete & Bas this Saturday at 256 Fallowfield. Shouts to Hit & Run for this one, I expect this one will have no trouble selling out.
