Tomorrow: Legendary Punks Refused Bring The Revolution To A Tiny London Dive Bar
Of course, the group have been known for their incendiary live shows since their formation in Umeå all the way back in 1991, and after breaking up and later reforming in 2014, their reputation continues to grow still. With academies and huge festival stages alike under their belt, it was a brilliantly refreshing change to invite Dennis Lyxzén and co. to perform in front of just 50 lucky fans, and Refused made the most of it by performing a thrilling 30-minute, career-spanning set. We won’t spoil it for you, but there’s some absolute belters between 1998’s iconic The Shape Of Punk To Come and their most recent 4K-rated War Music album.
Be sure to check back tomorrow – November 7 – to watch the full thing. Refused in The K! Pit will begin streaming on our Facebook page from 7:30pm GMT / 2:30pm EST / 11:30am PST, so wherever you are in the world, brace yourselves…
In the meantime, the rowdy show looked a little something like this:
