The Boyfriends to play special London gig

The band to help raise money for Mika Bomb drummer

The Boyfriends are set to play are special benefit gig for Japanese punk band Mika Bomba.

Morrissey’s favourite new band will line-up at the London Garage on May 15 alongside The Pippettes, White Heat DJs, Piranha Deathray and Mika Bomb themselves.

The groups are playing together after Mika Bomb’s drummer Ergi Ahmed was rushed to hospital with a near fatal blood poisoning last December.

Despite being in a coma for a week, Ahmed survived though doctors were forced to amputate both his legs below his knees.

The drummer is now learning to walk with prosthetics, but the gig is hoping to raise money for Ahmed and his family while he can’t work.
