Penguins Go Pop, who released their album '20th Century Pop' in late 2018, and a download single 'How An Astronaut Feels' in July in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, return to one of their favourite venues the Louis Marchesi on Friday 15th November. They will be airing a new song or two, entry is free and the night starts from 8.45 pm.

Penguins Go Pop were popular in the late 80s and early 90s, reformed in October 2013, and have won over many new friends and fans in the last few years with their catchy, quirky songs with offbeat and amusing stories. The band, Richard Penguin (Vocals, songs and conga), Mark Wyatt (guitar and vocals), Dave Clark (Drums), Pete Moore (bass) and Liz Moore (Keyboards, violin, saxophone, and vocals) and occasionally original drummer Andy Mickleburgh released their album '20th Century Pop' in late 2018. They play a mix of Richard's songs from the original line up and songs that he recorded as King Penguin, with new songs by both Richard and Mark currently being worked on. They have also been working in the last few years with film maker Richard Rix who has made videos to all of the songs, including 'How an Astronaut Feels' which are used as backdrops during their concerts. The band have played extensively across Norfolk and Suffolk in the last few years, aim to put a smile on people's faces during austere and bleak times, and seem to be succeeding. This is what the Manchester chronicle series of newspapers said about '20th Century Pop'- 'This is an album we wished we had heard 30 years ago. It's one of those albums you love in your youth, and ever more it remains a musical comfort blanket'
