The excellent PVT play the very first proper gig at the new Workman’s Club (next to the Clarence Hotel) in Dublin this Thursday (September 9).

Support for this On the Record Presents gig comes from Halves (which, pop trivia fans, really makes them the first act to hit the stage for a paying audience). Looking forward to seeing Halves – they’ve a long-in-the-works debut album ready to be released and it will be good to hear tunes from that.

Here’s the 10 tunes which PVT’s Laurence Pike describes as the “high-rotation, pre-European tour super-favourites on my iPod over the last month”.

The Flamingos “I Only Have Eyes For You”
Alan Vega “American Dreamer”
Tonetta “My Bro”
The Platters “My Prayer”
Bob Dylan “I Was Young When I Left Home”
Lttle Willie John “My Love Is”
John Maus “Do Your Best”
Bruce Springsteen “Darkness On The Edge Of Town”
David Bowie “It’s No Game”
Johnny Mathis “Wild Is The Wind”

You can also check out two PVT DJ mixes: their homage to the synth is here and the DJ mix they did for Allez Allez can be enjoyed here.
