LONG-TIME fans of the Keighley music scene are in for a double treat during the town’s first Arts and Film Festival next month.

Ska-punk-metal trio Random Hand, one of Keighley’s biggest musical exports of the Noughties, are reforming for a one-off gig.

And The Elements, the late 70s band that morphed into the iconic 80s Goth band Skeletal Family, will be back together to play their one and only album in its entirety.

Both gigs will be at the Exchange Arts Centre in Russell Street, ‘Skelements’ on Friday October 11 and Random Hand on Sunday, October 13.

Random Hand, who relentlessly played around the UK for several years living out of the back of their tour van, are billed as one of the best live bands ever in Keighley.

An Exchange spokesman said: “They mix up ska, metal, reggae and punk in a unique fusion that has been incredibly influential across the underground music circuits.

“Back after a long hiatus but fresher than ever, a home-town show is always special with them.”

Skeletal Family founders Stan Greenwood and Trotwood will be back with fellow Elements musician Karl Heinz for the ‘Skelements’ gig.

The spokesman said: “They will play music from their early career up to present featuring songs from both The Elements and Skeletal Family with very special guests.”

Book tickets at Keighley Musicians Centre, next to the Exchange on Russell Street, or Grind and Groove record shop in Cavendish Street.
