UK Subs with Headsticks & Kid Klumsy

The UK Subs maintain that true spirit of punk rock continuing to inspire each subsequent generation of fans. There has never been any division of fan and band with the Subs, and Charlie’s unrelenting love of his audience and music shines through. This is something that galvanized listeners of Steve Lamacq’s BBC 6music show to vote them as the most respected of Punk ‘icons’, to win the 2010 Punk World Cup.
2016 saw their eagerly awaited new album ‘Ziezo’ released via an extremely successful ‘PledgeMusic’ campaign, leading to a crescendo of critical acclaim, as they finally completed their quest to be the first band to release their official albums alphabetically A to Z!.
With a fabulous line up in place of Charlie, Steve Straughan on guitar, Alvin Gibbs on bass and Jamie Oliver on drums, the U.K. Subs continue to entertain, enlighten and enthuse with blistering recordings and enthralling live shows.
Like a vintage wine – the U.K. Subs just get better and better.Celebrating the 40th anniversary year for the UK Subs

Kid Klumsy with Special Guests Dead Objectives

Based in and around Coalville,Leicestershire. Kid Klumsy have been together a little while but are now heading further afield with their own headline shows around the Uk alongside some fantastic festival slots, all day slots and support slots at larger shows. The bands latest release ‘ Spit Your Dummy Out’ is released on May 27th 2018 via STP Records and is available on Spotify, ITunes, Amazon etc etc.
The bands earlier ep releases can be listened to and downloaded on the bands bandcamp page elsewhere on our page. The bands fun presence on stage and off will take songs about Pukka Pies, Dyslexic Monkeys and more to hopefully put a smile on your face, whether on stage in front of you or via your speakers. The band will also be playing their debut German shows in March 2019 as the Kid Klumsy bandwagon starts to gather pace, also possible shows in Japan for Halloween 2019 as well as Uk shows galore in 2019, hopefully you will get on board for the ride with us all.
Dead Objectives offer a fresh, new assault on everything which is wrong in their world. An incendiary mix of quasi experimental hardcore, the band comprises 2 females and 2 males, in an explosive merger of generation X and Generation I.
Birthed from the conjoined twin cities of Manchester and Salford, England’s Dead Objectives deliver a sound reminiscent of early Dead Kennedy’s, Killing Joke, and Conflict but which, distinctively, remains their own.

Guana Batz at The Fleece, Bristol

Fri 8th Nov | 7.30pm | All Ages*

Guana Batz
www.facebook.com/GuanaBatzAreGo

The Guana Batz were part of a British wave of psychobilly that sprang up in the early ’80s, around the same time that bands like the Cramps were gaining underground prominence in America, and more straightforward rockabilly revivalists like the Stray Cats and the Polecats were hitting the charts on both sides of the Atlantic. The group was formed in the English town of Feltham, in Middlesex, in 1983, with a lineup featuring vocalist Pip Hancox, guitarist Stuart Osbourne, bassist Mick White (also of the similar Meteors), and drummer Dave Turner; White, an electric bassist, was soon replaced by stand-up acoustic player Sam Sardi. Playing hopped-up rockabilly with the speed and aggression of punk rock, the Guana Batz fit nicely into the British psychobilly scene epitomized by the Meteors, the Stingrays, the Caravans, and other bands who played at the good-naturedly rough Klub Foot in London. As such, the Batz landed a deal relatively quickly, releasing their debut EP, You’re So Fine, on Big Beat Records by the end of 1983. An appearance on the Stompin’ at the Klub Foot compilation netted them a better deal with ABC/ID, which released their full-length debut, Held Down…At Last! (aka Held Down to Vinyl…At Last!), in 1985. A follow-up, Loan Sharks, appeared a year later, and proved an even bigger underground hit (at least in the U.K.) than its predecessor. Live in London (recorded at the Klub Foot) followed in 1987, and Rough Edges continued the group’s annual release schedule in 1988. Following that album, drummer Turner was replaced by Johnny Bowler, who debuted on 1990’s Electra Glide in Blue (recorded for new label World Service). While the band continued to tour the U.K. and Europe (with new bassist Mark Pennington), their initial recording career ended there, and they disbanded during the ’90s. Hancox and Bowler both moved to California, where they settled and started families. The Guana Batz reunited in late 1998, however, and recorded the all-covers album Undercover the following year. The compilation Can’t Take the Pressure was released in 2000, with a competing best-of, The Very Best of the Guana Batz, appearing in 2001.

Membranes

The Membranes return has been quite stunning.

After a 26 year break they released their best received album – Dark Matter/Dark Energy’ which has great reviews ross the world (check the link below). the band has received lots of radio play of BBC 6Music and recorded 2 session for the Marc Riley show as wells played from Steve Lamacq, Gideon Coe, Tom Robinson on 6music, John kennedy on XFM and Jim Gellatly on Amazing Radio and lots of radio play in Europe.

The band have also played festivals across the UK and Europe and completed a 4 week American tour. The band have been doing special shows they called ‘The Universe Explained’ where they play with a 20 piece choir – they have played a sold out show in Estonia with the choir (2 page review in Mojo magazine of the Membranes gig with 20 piece choir in Estonia

‘One of the albums of the year. Very few rock bands, new or old, reformed or not have done an album as good as Dark Matter/Dark Energy in 2015.’ The Quietus

‘An extraordinary comeback’ the NME

‘Exciting and angular, their first album for 26 years actually pretty good’Q

‘Something quite special’ Drowned in Sound 9/10

There have been some brilliant and breathtaking “guitar records” this year. And this is one of them. Maybe, in terms of sheer breadth of ambition, courage, and devil-take-the-hindmost intelligence, it’s the best one…album of the year.’ Incendiary website

‘The new Membranes album is epic, stunning and beautiful. Its strength is its diversity – ranging from angular noise to neo classical, from enveloping drones to ground breaking soundscapes to dark dub brilliance’ Classic Rock 10/10 album review

The Bouncing Souls + Support at the Fleece, Bristol

DEADPUNK PROMOTIONS PRESENTS:

THE BOUNCING SOULS (New Jersey, USA)
This year The Bouncing Souls are celebrating their 30th year as a band, a tremendous milestone by any measure, and one that’s even more impressive for a band as consistently active and crowd pleasing as the New Jersey punk legends. In honor of the anniversary, the band has announced the release of Crucial Moments, a brand new six-song EP and accompanying book, due out March 15th from Rise Records. Today The Bouncing Souls are sharing the title track and its music video, an anthemic ode to three decades of great music and great friendships — proof that the band shows no signs of slowing down.

The Cockney Rejects plus Gimme Gimme Gimmes and Zero Tolerance

THE COCKNEY REJECTS EXPLODED ONTO THE SCENE IN 1979 AND GRABBED THE INDUSTRY QUITE LITERALLY, BY THE THROAT.

IN ASSOCIATION with JB PROMOTIONS they are heading to Dreadnoughtrock Bathgate Friday 27 Sept 2019 in this TICKET ONLY EVENT.

These four kids from London’s East End were battle hardened veterans of the streets, smoky boxing clubs, and West Ham’s bearpit terraces, with experiences beyond their tender years.

They were the first and original band to weld driving rock rhythms to terrace singalongs, and they crashed out of the East End like a demented freight train, flattening everything in their path.

The searing soundtrack they created has refused to die, and with US bands such as Rancid, Green Day and the Dropkick Murphys citing the band as major influences, they have become a cult to a new generation.

Older and wiser, the Cockney Rejects now tour the globe igniting audiences worldwide with their red hot live set and uniting kids from the four corners of the earth with their particular brand of rock’n’roll and West Hammery.
