Blog Posts from the Pudenski Brothers

Hi all

It's been a busy time and looks to be continuing that way...we seem to be making friends in many many places!

I'm just about to update the diary with some dates in All Hail Ale in the Westbourne/ Triangle area, several private events in Dorset, Hampshire and Oxfordshire, and some solo bookings. In addition to the Pudenski Bros there are also some dates for the electric 4-piece The 79.

So things are going pretty well at the moment but we're never too busy to chat and discuss future bookings.

Hoping for some exciting news soon so watch this space...Peace and love to all!


Hi all

Summer's well underway and we're making a lot of friends!

Last weekend was Shake n Stir in Southbourne - always a great event and we have been getting a lot of local love back from that, both as the Puds and the 79. More events are coming in fast alongside regular gigs...

At the Wight Bear on Tuesdays it has been bonkers lately, so much that we now have support acts from 7-7:45 before we tackle your requests. So far we have had Sean Harding, Plastic Jeezus and two-thirds of Murphy's Lore. Coming soon - Scarlett Bow, Dave Dawson and others.

Lots of photos and vids to come - in the meantime, thanks for all your support!

Hi again - I've updated the gig list and it seems we are in for a busy time!

We did a couple of great garden parties last week, spreading the joy in lovely settings in the New Forest and West Moors...

There are developments at the Wight Bear on Tuesdays - we now have support acts! They cover 7pm - 7:45ish until we take over with a request show. We welcomed the awesomely amusing Plastic Jeezus last week. Soon we have two-thirds of Murphy's Lore (authentic beautiful folky stuff) joining us, and the brilliant Scarlett Bow will be bringing her cabaret/ comedy/ accordion/ amazing vocals in a few weeks' time. In between special guests, our regular special guest is the excellent Sean Harding with his acoustic and soulful treatements of popular covers (and the occasional original). It's really nice to mix it up with some great other local musos so make sure you get there early so as not to miss these acts!

Hi all. We're continuing to rock the Wight Bear every Tuesday and hopefully from the 20 July you won't even have to book!

Britain's Favourite 80s Songs. The 1980s were a decade of bold style, colours, and silhouettes— and heaping amounts of permed hair. With trends spanning from ripped tights and biker jackets to polished oversized blazers and poof skirts, and style icons ranging from Joan Jett to Joan Collins.1982 when ABC, Culture Club, Musical Youth, Tears for Fears, the Stranglers, Kraftwerk, the Jam, Yazoo, and the Goombay Dance Band made their way up the charts

Chart Busting Songs 1982

January 1981 revealed the identity of the so-called Yorkshire Ripper, Peter Sutcliffe is finally apprehended by British police, ending one of the largest manhunts in history. For five years, investigators had pursued every lead in an effort to stop the serial killer who terrorized Northern England. Clothes were used to define personalities and make big statements with 1980s fashion as art and Sloane Street had a massive influence on what young people were prepared to wear.

Super Songs of 1981

1980 was celebrated by The Pretenders with the first UK Number One of the Eighties on 19th January where they hit the top of the charts with Brass in Pocket it was the bands third single giving them one of their biggest hits. This was very much the focus as The 1980s reflected the beginning of a period of excessive income disparity where the focus on material comfort was reflected in the lyrics and music of the time. 

Fantastic Songs 1980

Possibly due to the number of Christmas hits released in the 1970s meant that acts in the 1980s brought out singles or albums aimed specifically at the festive charts, that elusive spot in the top 40, aiming for the top ten all with their eye on the saught after Christmas number one. It was back in 2014 Blinkbox conducted a new study into the United Kingdoms favourite festive songs, Popular Christmas songs which you would include on your playlist with 36 per cent voting for the 1980s as the decade that produced the most seasonal classics. We love our Christmas Music and they feature songs which make every Christmas compilation album, some creating more controversy than others. It's true that Christmas songs from the 1980s remain a major part of our festive soundtrack, including some bona fide Christmas classics.

80s Christmas Hits

The Wight Bear through Jodie one of the staff is hosting a virtual pub with live music from Martin from his musical attic. To go along to the virtual gig you need to have access to Zoom. Zoom can be run on mobile phones, tablets and computers and gives you a way of socialising like we did pre Covid-19 in the comfort of your own home.
