GOOD THROB feature members of The Sceptres and The Shitty Limits, and if you know those bands you know what to expect: a wall of sound and savage ferocity that is perfectly described as being aimed at "suicidal call-centre staff and the sexually dispossessed". Imagine Mark E Smith reborn a girl and reliving endless bad days at the office and disappointing nights out, rebuking customer service and hurling that maliciously malfunctioning photocopier out of the damn window. This is contemporary punk rock as it ought to be. Honest, brutal and to the point.
JETTYSON is a brand new London garage punk rock trio, fronted by Lucie, the sassiest girl in this hemisphere. Expect an unquiet beginning to proceedings...and mayhem to ensue
RETROFUTURE appeared just a few months ago in east London, having come from 2015 across the washing machine. They play pataphysic punk with absurd lyrics, primitive sounds, emotional vocals and fresh synths. This is punk rock for today, tomorrow and yesterday.
At the Shacklewell Arms, 71 Shacklewell Lane, Dalston.
