Danger! Danger! Detroit's finest sharply attired rockers Electric Six are back with a vengeance and bring their UK tour to the UEA, Norwich, on Friday December 3.

Electric Six first hit the collective consciousness of the UK when only Girls Aloud's Sound of the Underground could prevent their classic debut single Danger! High Voltage from blasting straight to the top of the charts.

The band soon had another hit to their credit when the feverishly addictive Gay Bar hit the top five.

More recently, Dick Valentine and his eccentrically-named chums have been holed up in the studio recording their follow-up to 2003's top 10 album, Fire.

Furthermore, Electric Six are set to feature on the soundtrack office Christmas parties everywhere when their awe-inspiring version of Queen's Radio Ga Ga is released as a single on December 13.
