The Vibrators
First wave U.K. Punk Rock since 1976. Still touring and recording.
With a career lasting 40+ years, vocalist/guitarist IAN “KNOX” CARNOCHAN, bassist PAT COLLIER, guitarist JOHN ELLIS and drummer EDDIE originally formed the VIBRATORS in February 1976, and their first gig was supporting THE STRANGLERS at Hornsey Art College in North London. They supported THE SEX PISTOLS at the 100 CLUB and were one of the bands playing at the now legendary 100 CLUB PUNK ROCK FESTIVAL, where as well as doing their own set they supported guitar hero CHRIS SPEDDING. CHRIS recommended the band to his then record company, RAK. The band’s debut single “WE VIBRATE” came out in November (one of the first punk singles) and was followed two weeks later by CHRIS SPEDDING’S “POGO DANCING” single with the VIBRATORS as the band on that.

With support from:

The Blue Carpet Band
Powerhouse five-piece garage punk rock’n’rollers based in North London. Like classic blues-rock proponents such as The Yardbirds and early Rolling Stones mixing it up with early New York punk, The Cramps and The Stooges, think big riffs, 12-bar boogie and unstoppable energy, on a mission to bring back good real music to London then the world.

Slow Faction
A 1st generation-influenced 4 piece punk band with a real London 77 sound. The Critically acclaimed album “The Brixton Tapes” was followed by the equally acclaimed “This Machine Kills Fascists” EP.

Hailing from Cambridge the band was founded in 1981. After several gigs the band was invited to appear at the Oi! Oi! That’s Y’r Lot LP. Soon the band recorded their first EP but called it a day in late 1983. Fast forward and the band are back with a new line-up and a new album.

The Setbacks
Bath based no frills punk ‘n’ roll with a hint of metal. The Setbacks formed in Bath from the ashes of Mighty Joe Young and Tweaker around autumn 2001, playing our first gig in July 2002. Give or take the odd line-up adjustment we have since played with the likes of The Misfits, UK Subs, D.O.A, TV Smith, The Avengers, 999 & Sham 69.

(The band formally known as) Crack Foxes
An all grrrl band from London with fox fixations playing Glam Rock, Riot Grrrl, and Punk for the masses. All girls, all rock, all day, all night.

“All pounding vocals and seductive drumming, or perhaps the other way around?” – (Brighton Noise)
ARXX are a Garage Rock duo based in Brighton, who broke on to the scene early 2014. Marrying together an eclectic range of influences stemming from punk, blues, soul, and garage rock.

The Outbursts
We’re a garage punk band from London, playing 3 chord songs like our lives depend on it. With the spirit of ’66 and ’77 tattooed across our collective arses, we sing songs of love and fury, sex and hate, disgrace and drugs, Old Spice and Benylin – we used to be such nice boys!

Aftershow performance from:

South London Based Punk Band with a Spacey twist. Damidge recorded their debut album, ‘Fax of Life’ in 1994 at Foel Studios, North Wales. However the album was never released due to the band’s breakup only to reform in 2013.
