“dragSTER bleed and sweat a rock n roll intensity that anyone lucky enough to witness them live will attest to”
Formed in the dirty back streets of Coventry, disenchanted with the watered down piss of popular music dragSTER went into a cycle of relentless writing and touring. Within a year of forming they had been produced by Rat Scabies (THE DAMNED) and were managed by Jah Wobble (PIL).
Singer Fi was invited to front the world renowned musical collective PIGFACE on a 40 date US tour.
Four studio albums and hundreds of live shows under their belt including festivals in the UK and Europe mean dragSTER have built up a huge following of loyal fans. dragSTER hold up a mirror to the world, a sleazy, distorted, broken mirror.
Their fourth studio album Anti-Everything was released last year with a full UK tour and dates in the Czech Republic.

Their influences are 50s rock n roll, 60s garage, 70s/80s punk, 90s grunge
Elvis, Eddie Cochrane, Wanda Jackson, MC5, Stooges, The Damned, Misfits, Sex Pistols, The Cramps, Dead Kennedys, Mudhoney, Supersuckers, Social Distortion.

“Punk rock ‘n’ roll genius” – Vive Le Rock

“Fi trashes the ‘punk -seen it all before’ shite spouted by the barely breathing UK music press…” – LTW

“There have been some extraordinary rock ‘n’ roll storms in recent times but few can be said to have come close to the fire and flare of dragSTER’s Dead Punk”-The Ringmaster Review

“Everything the group does seems to be a peak – every live performance we’ve seen is just better than the last. They’ve made a pretty damn powerful name for themselves because they’re a damn powerful group”- Cat On The Wall

With support from…

Dead Mob

Dead Mob are a young 4 piece hardcore/metal punk band based in Birmingham, influenced by the likes of Slayer, Discharge and Black Sabbath.
They play fast heavy music and aim to blast ear drums!
Come check them out!

Pretty Pistol

Pretty Pistol is a loud 4-piece garage punk band born in London.

After a chance encounter at a Hole gig in Birmingham back in 2010 – plus several drinks and a trashed hotel room – singer Laura Le Rox and drummer Emma Waller met up in Camden’s finest public toilet-turned-rehearsal room five years later to form Pretty Pistol with guitarist Billy Larsen and bassist Nick Arnell.

Combining melds of furious shouts, frenzied riffs and pummelling drums, resulting in a marshalled chaos somewhere between Gallows, Be Your Own Pet and The Kills. The band is an unignorable presence on the London circuit supporting the likes of Penetration, KidBrother, Drones and Crazytown, to headlining and selling out London venues Birthdays and The Black Heart, which lead to them being picked as Team Rock’s Band Of The Week in Feb 2018

The band’s latest EP ‘Welcome To The Dead Club’ was released on 13th April 2018, recorded with renowned rock producer John Mitchell (Architects, Enter Shikari, You Me At Six) and features the singles ‘Cry Wolf’ and ‘Drive Me To The Dogs’.

7/10 “ballsy!” – Metal Hammer magazine

“This is riot music done right” – Beneath The Grid Music

“Living up to their reputation they put on a chaotic and powerful show” – Vulture Hound
