Shoe designers Acupuncture rope in Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Vines, The Hives and more...

Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Hives, Libertines and Vines will all feature on a new compilation CD by shoe designers ACUPUNCTURE.

Released in October, ‘Acupuncture Rocks’ will also be celebrated by a nationwide tour featuring live performances by The Martini Henry Rifles, The Asleep, The Rocks, Ten Benson and Jackie O.

Following the success of last night’s ‘Acupuncture V The Wrestlers’ (June 24) event at London’s Rocket Rooms in which the Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster played alongside three bouts of wrestling, the touring bands will also be joined by the wrestlers.
