Happy Happy Birthday To Me


Add to Wishlist
THE FLATMATES were formed in 1985 in Bristol, UK, a product of the city’s highly active mid-80s indie club scene (The Mission Club, The Bunker, EEC Punk Rock Mountain). Over the next 12 months they became one of the first bands to set the scene for what has become known to pop historians as the ‘C86 Movement’.

Their simple aim was to make classic pop tunes combining the energy of '70s punk bands such as The Ramones and The Buzzcocks, the cool pop charm of '60s girl bands like The Ronettes and Shangri-Las, seasoned with an artful pinch of The Velvet Underground.

The Flatmates have played numerous shows, including tours of the US East coast, France and Germany. 2019 has seen the reissue of the Love and Death collection, as well as the release of their eighth single ’Shut Up And Kiss Me,’ on Greek label Old Bad Habits, also the lead track on the new album. Whilst the new songs are written from a more mature viewpoint, The Flatmates have not mellowed.
