23rd June Leeds: CRUSADES (Glasgow), HEROIN DIET, Endless Rope, Bears Killing Bears. @ Jamie Reid (Sex Pistols) art exhibition, Leeds
PART 2 of Ragged Nights at TEMPLE WORKS LEEDS.
Ragged Nights - A series of nights of punk and punk influenced bands to support the "Ragged Kingdom" exhibition of the pioneering and world-renowned punk artist Jamie Reid. Jamie's artwork, including his famous Sex Pistols alum covers can be seen at Temple Works Leeds from June 14th - July 14th.
Part 2 of the Ragged Nights series features:
Hotly tipped post-hardcore band from Glasgow. Face shredding riffs, melodic and heavy, no cheesy "brutal" breakdowns, just straight up hardcore sickness. Already airplayed on BBC Radio 1 and billed to play T In The Park and Soundcity Fest, this will be your chance to see Crusades tear it up in Leeds for the first time.
For fans of Reagan Youth, The Adolescents and The Germs. "... a punk band from Manchester, fast 2 minute blasts with reverb vocals, very much in the vein as the recent new wave of punk upstarts like those Danish brats, Iceage.

BEARS KILLING BEARS
Thrash punks kicking out loud, fast and dirty jams in the vein of Motorhead and Black Sabbath. Big riffs, denim and leather.
