Help She Can’t Swim Reunite For Show In Tribute Of Late Drummer, Lewis Baker

Proceeds to St Joseph’s Hospice

Help She Can’t Swim have announced that they will be reuniting in 2023 for their first live show since 2007. The south coast indie-punk 5 piece will play The Lexington in London on April 20th 2023 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the band’s formation and pay tribute to the band’s drummer Lewis Baker, who sadly passed away in 2021. Proceeds from the show will be donated to the St Joseph’s Hospice in London. Tickets on sale now, get yours here.
 
Formed in 2003, Help She Can’t Swim released two albums ; “Fashionista Super Dance Troupe” (2004) and “The Death of Nightlife” (2007) as well as a host of EPs and 7”s, before officially calling it quits in 2008. Their mix of hyperactive indie pop, post-punk noise, confrontational boy-girl vocals and lo-fi keyboards set them apart from the glut of lad rock filling the indie scene at the time. Known for energised and chaotic live shows, HSCS share stages with the likes of The Cribs, The Blood Brothers, Sleater Kinney and Test Icicles to name a few.  The band line-up was Tom Denney (vocals, guitar, keyboards), Leesey Frances (vocals, keyboards), Tim Palmer (bass, keyboards), Lewis Baker (drums) and Tom Baker (guitar, bass, keyboards).
 
The band comment: “Lewy’s passing really got us all talking again for the first time in a long time and looking back on what we did with Help She Can’t Swim. We’re really proud of what we did as a band and know Lewy world have loved to have played these songs again so it feels like a fitting tribute to come together and play a show for him.”
