This is an Access All Ages event for rock'n'roll kids from every decade. (Under 14s and over 90s accompanied please!). 18+ id required for booze.
GEAR : Beat fuelled post garage rock, making it's mark this year - a Buzzcocks tour, Xfm play list and session, festival slots, Radio1 Top 10 single, a self-staged school tour...Gear strike a chord with punks of all decades (ex Pistols & Clash members have been at the shows). Their spiky, intense live shows are more in your face than your cheekbones.
FUCKSHOVEL - Full on, unrelenting, punk attitude with a metal edge. No solos. No ballads. No deadweight. Mosh, Kermit and singer, Jack Death, recruited Johnboy and Dr K last summer and incited incendiary songs that reflected former day jobs in Cradle of Filth, Decimator and a plethora of rock, metal and skater-punk bands. Fuckshovel are ready to bury people 'live'.
ROADKILL - Rap'n'riffs from a classic power rock trio invfluenced by RATM, Led Zeppelin and Metallica - back by request
B IS FOR BROKOVITCH - post hardcore pop punk - back by request "surprisingly ace school pupil metallers" (john earls - ch.4 teletex).
DJ set from CARDBOARD SUPERSTARS who played the launch of the rock matinees in May. They will return, with a new EP, live on stage at the end of October matinee. http://www.myspace.com/cardboardsuperstars
