The Dublin Castle Jukebox Festival with The Joneses (Play The Music Of The Smiths)/Wott The Hoople/Shadowplay (A Joy Division Tribute)

The Dublin Castle Jukebox Festival features tribute acts, so anyone who doesn’t embrace the warped joy of that particular musical phenomenon and thinks it’s all a bit end of the pier, cheesy and naff then please look away now and go and study a large expanse of wall with recently applied beige paint upon it. We’re not worthy of your attention. The rest of yous who like to have a good time all the time step up…It’s See Sixties, See Seventies, See Eighties Go! with tributes to The Smiths, Joy Division and Mott The Hoople, what’s not to love? A celebration of three decades of vital British music complimenting The Greatest Jukebox in Christendom and the Best Venue In London with The Most Fabulous DJs In The World! That’s what the Dublin gives you, nowhere better. Starring….Wott The Hoople, yes it’s Mott re-imagined brilliantly. All The Young Dudes. Roll Away The Stone . The Golden Age Of Rock And Roll. Damn right. The Joneses meanwhile excel in channeling the extraordinary diversity of melody and mood found in the remarkable music of The Smiths, one of the most influential bands of all time. Shadowplay of course take on the sainted Joy Division. A conceptual and artistically sophisticated take on the stunning Joy Division canon it is too, Shadowplay seek to portray and subtly re- interpret this startling music in their own way rather than commit a carbon copy. Get in nice and early for the full joyous package, 6.30pm, with DJs playing a set especially created to reflect the happenings on stage, we very much hope to see you there, mine’s a Budvar.

Tap on the incredibly sassy Poly Styrene here to hear Bugbear’s brand new show outta Boogaloo Radio. Tales Of The Dublin Castle are legion, and Tony Bugbear and Mike Bennett explore a few here. Tony Bugbear was as sick as a mangy dog for the duration of this show but thanks to wonderful support from the legendarily loquacious co-host Lord Michael Of Bennettshire, we got through our second Rebel Radio Dublin Castle oriented show without Buggerbear barfing all over Bernard Butler’s desk in the fabbo diving bell cum studio at Boogaloo HQ. In this installment we concern ourselves with the forthcoming annual Poly Styrene commemorative spectacular (Nov 3rd and 4th in The Dublin Castle) that’s Polyfest ya know, and also discuss Mike and Tony’s forthcoming glam rock bible to be Glamnesia, it’s gonna be deliriously groovy. As is the playlist here- featuring as it does nailed on classics, Dublin Castle newbies, old gold from the Bugbear Time Machine and killer diller tuneage of all descriptions, prescriptions and inscriptions, illustrated by booooolsheeeet I mean fabulous erudite banter. Get on it.
