RADIO RAGE feat. Tadeo Man
 + (Tribute to Rage Against The Machine)
 + Ghost Note City + Manaking
Radio Rage – Tribute to Rage Against The Machine- Fuck you I won’t do what you tell me, well, I reckon they will play that song if you ask nicely, not to mention all the other gnarly punk metal and hiphop informed fiery fare of yer actual RATM. And tonite Radio Rage meets TADEO MAN, singer and founder of United Rage so two exceptional concerts in one! Ghost Note City-Muscular yet melodic prog tinged alt rock, recalls Bring me The Horizon in places, decent hooky tunes. Manaking– 1 crazy guy playing punky alt stuff freakout whilst wearing a harlequin hat and other strange vestements…..although he does have a full backing band …of mannequins… ‘Highly original & unique Concept Artist delivering uncompromising rock crossover music, rhythmic vocals & stunning live visual performances.’ Think Butthole Surfers meets John Otway, strange but true.

Lavender Hills- driving indie rock with a Biffy Clyro beasting Radiohead feel, full on and groovy with it. The Wilde-Adrenalin fuelled hard rock with a nod to AC/DC and Zep, tight riffology and huge hooks all played with bags of conviction Metril- schlock metal and filthy with it, supercool hard rock utterly living the RNR dream, I don’t think these boys do Dry January ya get me, and the lyrics are in French which somehow just underlines it’s raw, raucous nasty ass status.

Sonars-Anglo-Italian duo playing nu-psychedelic shoegaze  pop, rendered on Analogue Keys, drum pads guitar and Loop pedals, Tame Impala could be an influence but there’s a thread of mid 70’s prog running through the tunes too, interesting and compelling Planet- Australian band, shimmering brit-pop inspired psychedelic Indie, sounds like the Verve had they been on The Flying Nun Label (Chills etc). Great stuff Quintessenz-Indie pop from switzerland intricately melodic, there’s an undercurrent of prog, but it’s not overpowering, they’ve decent hooks too, quite a unique sound. The Fragments- Righteous bottle neck guitar and a lived in troubadour vocal. RNR scally vibes here like The Real People or even The La’s if they’d been rejigged as a Credence Clearwater Revival type experience. Or Cast more like.  Italian rockers with a Springsteen goes Paisly Underground vibe. They can play and they can rock- great lead guitar.

Chernobyl Sunshine Club-Folk infused indie rock with a cinemascopic, beautifully realized sound, reminds of Last Of The Shadow Puppets in places, cerebral and compelling stuff with decent tunes to hold the attention Suns Up- Emo-pop with a highly polished commercial sheen and such a crisp production it’s oven ready for Radio 1,  a kind of Weezer up-date maybe, cool. Emily Cavanagh– is an independent artist, signed to a small publishing deal in Los Angeles, who has recently played a run of successful tours in Ireland, with multi-platinum selling Irish singer/songwriter, Paddy Casey. Her songs have been featured in commercial and trailer work, notably in 2017 in Woody Harrelson‘s trailer for the Fox Searchlight Film “Wilson.” She is a featured lyricist for the band Neeskens, based in Paris. Altergaze– Celestial and sublime slowburning, shoegaze, referencing Cocteau Twins, especially the vocals, The Cure are in the mix too, lovely stuff

I, The Lion–  3 piece post-punk trio from Cheltenham featuring heavy progressive bass lines, twisting guitar riffs, hard hitting drums and melodic harmonious vocals. Think  Biffy Clyro via At The Drive In. Broads-  A ghostly female vocal and a male vocal parrying with her makes for a nice dynamic, a bit of Portishead and an equally spectral synth pop – less pop more synth gothic, icy and dark.. Broads are a Norwich-based 2-piece who merge programmed electronics, synth drones and gradually-unfolding melody into a delicate, spacious wall of sound. Their fourth full-length album ‘Field Theory’ is due out on Humm Recordings on February 16.  Mogwai, Boards of Canada and My Bloody Valentine all resonate within.  The Fire Harvest – deep folk informed alt rock indebted to Nick Cave but with a pleasing enough, engaging feel. Slowcore and post punk as evinced on The Fire Harvest’s 2016 album ‘Singing, Dancing, Drinking’ is at once nostalgic and forward-thinking, delicate and weighty. CCCV-Dark but hooky synth driven indie, echoes of early New Order and Cabaret Voltaire also Depeche Mode

Altered Bridge- Myles Kennedy and all things Alter Bridge perfectly tributed unto her. Swooning rock chicks ahoy! Feral Sun – crisp, taut and tight as a ya like melodic hard rock with an impassioned alt lilt taking in bits of Nirvana and Sound Garden along the way, but beasting it like Metallica with the chunksome riffology. Sweet metal.  Bonds – alt rock with penetrating low slung riffogy. Foo Fighters, Pixies, Royal BloodConcreto – Brazilian heavy merchants who seem to be the missing link between Slayer and RATM one minute, more Metallica meets Maiden ‘classic’ metal the next, do it well, gotta lotta likes.

The Dublin Castle Rock And Roll Book Club
 + D J Taylor
 + 'Rock And Roll Is Life' The True Story Of The Helium Kids By One Who Was There: A Novel
‘Rock and Roll is Life’ is the new novel from the country’s leading man of letters, D. J. Taylor.Tonight in conversation with writer and DC RNR Book Club hostess Tony Gleed  as Julie Hamill provides the aural XTC….. You may remember the Helium Kids. Back in their late ’60s and early ’70s heyday they appeared on Top of the Tops on 27 separate occasions, released five Billboard-certified platinum albums, played sold-out shows at Madison Square Garden and were nearly, but not quite, as big as the Beatles and the Stones. Three decades later, in the big house on the outskirts of Norwich, Nick Du Pont is looking back on the rollercoaster years he spent as their publicist in a world of licensed excess and lurking tragedy. What follows is not only the story of a rock band at a formative time in musical history, when America was opening up to English music and huge amounts of money and self-gratification were there for the taking. For the tale is also Nick’s – the life and times of a war-baby born in a Norwich council house, the son of an absconding GI, whose career is a search for some of the advantages that his birth denied him. It is at once a worm’s eye of British pop music’s golden age and a bittersweet personal journey, with cameo appearances from everyone from Elvis and Her Majesty the Queen Mother to Andy Warhol. ‘Rock and Roll is Life’ is a vastly entertaining, picaresque and touching novel inspired by the excess and trajectories of the great ’60s and ’70s supergroups, and of the tales brought back from the front line by a very special breed of Englishmen who made it big in the States as the alchemists and enablers, as well as the old making way for the new in the era of the baby boomers. At its heart is one man’s adventure, and the poignancy of the special relationships that dominate his life. D.J. Taylor’s novels include English Settlement (1996), which won a Grinzane Cavour Prize, Trespass (1998) and Derby Day (2011), both long-listed for the Man Booker Prize, Kept: A Victorian Mystery(2006), a Publishers Weekly book of the year, and The Windsor Faction (2013), joint winner of the Sidewise Award for Alternate History. He has also written several works of non-fiction, including Orwell: The Life, winner of the 2003 Whitbread Prize for Biography and, most recently, The Prose Factory: Literary Life in England Since 1918 (2016). He lives in Norwich with his wife, the novelist Rachel Hore, and their three sons.

Peter Kasen– Kasen’s voice recalls the likes of Conor Oberst, with a bit of an edge and a dose of Pop sensibility. “Co-Pilot,” showcases the intellect of Kasen’s lyrics, and the depth of his songwriting abilities. His tightly focused songwriting path has brought him to stages across the world, garnering a fanbase of truly devoted fans and listeners in his native USA, and a developing one right her in Yoorp. Kasen wears his heart on his sleeve, with “Co-Pilot,” telling a very deep and personal story. Exceedingly interesting as it goes, feeling a bit Nick Drake in places instrumentation wise, but he does have a pretty unique voice. Something of Elliot Smith n’all, quite compelling actually. Ridiculous– Shimmering psych pop of a sunny disposition, think XTC via Lightning Seeds, and big fave raves for Bugbear back in the as they say day…and they’re back! Huzzah! The Band featured then as now drummer extraordinaire Jon Moss after Culture Club split 1st time round, he’s back in the band alongside songsmith Sebastian Wocker, vocals/guitar (Yeah / Hair / Michel Van Dyke) Erran Baron-Cohen: vocals/keys/trumpet (composer of film music for Borat / Bruno / The Infidel and brother natch of Sascha) And Pete Noone : bass/vocals (Roger Daltrey / Roger Taylor, Mick Ronson). All star cast, all star audience. Probably. Get yer selfie sticks out. Jim Johnston – Once one half of Bristol’s Monk & Cantella, one of the more interesting breakbeat acts. Jim’s new album ‘Three Dimensional Living’ is set to drop. “Chaotic glee, sinister whispers & genre-popping rock ‘n’ roll swirl to head-spinning effect!”- MOJO. Jazz Matu- Quintessentially quirky 3 piece fronted by Me Matu, playing  crisp alternopop.

Sonic Black Holes-Hypnotic yet Heavy psychedelic post rock from germany sounds a bit like a mash up of Explosions In The Sky and Mogwai at their most intense.The Biggest Thing Since Powdered Milk- old school countercultural tripadelic hard hitting three piece…hairy guys with a rock out groovin’ sound via cosmic considerations. Zappa, Edgar Broughton, MC5, Hendrix….killer guitar solos,great stuff. The Gorgons- Two piece dealing visceral garage punk, like a particularily unhinged Cramps via The Oblivions, also the Monks spring to mind, great stuff. The Boy From The Crowd – Hendrix gets a sassy glam punk indie makeover. Beloved of Louder Than War etc. Digging some post punk nuances into a glam punk turf…

The Travelling Wilburys -Celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Traveling Wilburys… If you’re looking for a tribute band with a difference, who play an incredible variety of songs by some of rock’s greatest legends, then you’ve just struck gold. The Trembling Wilburys pay perfect homage to the Traveling Wilburys, the amazing supergroup formed in 1988 by George Harrison, Roy Orbison, Jeff Lynne, Bob Dylan and the late great Tom Petty with hits including “Handle With Care”, “End Of The Line” & “She’s My Baby” as well as their incredible solo catalogues, plus Beatles & ELO songs. S o expect a wealth of brilliant material. Formed 30 years ago in 1988, the original Wilburys never played live as Roy Orbison passed away shortly after the release of their debut album “Volume 1”, but luckily the Tremblers bring you their version of the “show that never was” with an incredibly uplifting two hours of fantastic music. In addition the band features two of the closest look-&-sound-alikes of any tribute act, with GLEN KNOWLER being the living double of George Harrison, while DAVE COLLISON perfectly captures Roy Orbison’s unique vocal range and look. Absolutely NO WIGS in this band, folks! The line-up also features incredible lead guitarist DZAL MARTIN also renowned for his work with Terry Reid, The Equals, No Dice, Box of Frogs & many others, while drummer & manager DAVE STARK is also a well-known music industry insider who has some great stories of meeting George Harrison & all the Beatles along with Roy Orbison & Jeff Lynne. In addition the band was also officially endorsed & supported by Dave’s good friend the late Barbara Orbison, widow of Roy. FULL TWO-HOUR SHOW!!

Guns of the Seneca-Compelling  post-rock via prog,  nice Gilmour-esque guitar and they’re all great players and expert at the ‘ol light n shade dynamic. . Sorta Porcupine Tree via Explosions In The Sky prog and post rock with a dash of something a bit more folky and reflective. Vs. Robots-spacey synth sounds and quirky proggish passages that recall Calvert era Hawkwind and melancholic Rush meets Muse alt rock. Quite adventurous and definitely experiememting with the forms but commercial all the same. Chang– ‘It does what it Fucking wants too , always will and always has. CHANG is sick to the bloody and bored gills of existence with the current offerings the world slings out, are you sick too?Yes, Chang we are. A glorious noise, the sound of Chang. NOT Snow Patrol.

 The Prods –High octane punk rock and bastard roll with massive chords and massive attitude of a Godfathers, Pistols, Heartbreakers kind- massive guitar sound, great harmonies… ‘Losing at darts, beer and motorbikes since 2010. ‘ Andrew Robert and The Three Kings-  Gritty Oasis-esque hook laden indie pop with a bit of a Muse aspect to the soaring vox. other tunes are on a 70’s gritty glam tip Mott The Hoople. Also recalls The Who. Jerry- from York, skinny yoots playing adventurous funk tinged alt/art rock, super slinky with it, a coarse and horse narrative vocal puts you in mind of The Stranglers on Peaches or something. An agreeably odd mashing together of dissonant guitar, loping drums and funk breakdowns. Elements of Jonathan Richman , Half Japanese and The Fall. Inigo Blue & The System- Effortlessly cool pop referencing Bowie but through an 80’s sounding chamber  pop filter  with a unique and rather excellent vocal up-front. Go-Chi-Minh- Garage indie-billy in the vein of Fat White Family and therefore early Fall, there’s a sleaze-punk element that reminds of The Cramps too. Ace

The Dublin Castle Rock And Roll Book Club
 + Terry Edwards
 + One Step Beyond + Mark 'Bedders' Bedford
 + Julie Hamill + DJ Tony Bugbear
Terry Edwards is the multi instrumentalist renaissance man of head spinning multiple musical machinations…starting in pithy punk funk indie peasants The Higsons back in the early 1980s thru Gallon Drunk, Tony Visconti’s Holy Holy,  Madness, PJ Harvey, Lydia Lunch, The Near Jazz Experience, Lydia Lunch, The Scapegoats and really, really tooooo many more to mention! “One Step Beyond” isn’t the best album in the world it’s not even the best album by Madness. It is, however, a great record and an exceptional debut album -fully formed despite half the band still being in their teens and it remains as exhilarating, inspiring and as much fun as when people first heard it nearly 30 years ago. Through extensive interviews with the band, as well as producers Clive Langer & Alan Winstanley, Terry Edwards tells the inside story of how Madness rose to be the most successful singles band of the 1980s in the UK charts. Terry faces the white hot Q and A of our resident scribe Ms Julie Hamill tonight alongside Mark ‘Bedders’ Bedford from yer actual Madness with bespoke musical illustrations care of DJ Tony Bugbear.

Lyla- With eleven years providing incredible beats behind The Fall under his belt, the man they call Funky Si, Mr Simon Wolstencroft to you, moved on to working with Ian Brown and lots more ace artists, having once of course beaten the drum for The Stone Roses themselves and been the percussive heartbeat in the pre Morrissey Smiths, or Freak Party as they were known at the time. Last year’s revival of the Freak Party early recordings with Angie Brown on vocals may point some of the way to where Si locates himself now, in the expansively musical, jazz chops bejeweled funky as fook Lyla, fronted by sun kissed saltry singer Laura Ell and complimented by a full line up of exquisitely talented jazz/funk/soul players. Si gets to stretch out with Da Funk at last…Lyla are gonna flip your switch if you dig stuff like Headhunters, Chic, Fatback and The Blackbyrds. Damn groovy. Check out the sounds of the sunshine and enjoy ‘Little White Lies’ and ‘Toe The Line’, Lyla’s debut recordings available to stream,download & buy now. Ooberfuse– A tale of two legendary drummers tonight….Funky Si and ex Adam and the Ants/Bow Wow Wow/Republica/Chicane legend Dave Barbarossa have crossed sticks before, performing a remarkable drum off at last year’s Polyfest happening in the Dublin Castle (might well be a fixture at this year’s Polyfest on Nov 3rd too!) …Dave B finds himself and his incredible drumming skills behind progressive electropop duo Ooberfuse and here tonight to boot.  Ooberfuse also comprise Hal St John and Cherrie Anderson. An influential UK music critic says: “Ethereal electronic pop with the complex beauty that Ooberfuse has will endure.” Well-crafted songs delivered through powerful, emotional and heartfelt vocals combined with east-meets-west electronic music are Ooberfuse’s trademarks.

Inigo Blue & The System – Effortlessly cool pop referencing Bowie through an 80’s sounding chamber  pop filter with a unique and rather excellent vocal performance up-front. Craig Weir- With his Cabalistic Cavalry Craig Weir explores poetic intelligent pop music, with artistic collaborations as diverse as Pete Doherty and Brian May.  They are an indie folk rock band from Dundee, Scotland formed in 2017. Tonight Craig Weir leaves the Cavalry at home and plays a rare solo set. Fab it shall be. CuriousHour – Female fronted folk infused rock with a wash of psychedelia,  a dazed, delirious, dynamic sound.

Forget The Down-London band doing a feisty alt rock with a baggy swagger but a hard rocking riff monster edge. Dynamic stuff. Like Oasis go rawk The Froot- Psychedlicists supreme, ripe with youthful countercultural cool. The pithy taste of Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac, the sweet tang of Arthur Lee’s Love and the refreshing juicy hit of The Allah Las. Great.  The Brazen-  in thrall to the epic end of The Verve and The Music and all that nicely narco enabling Northern monkey widesceen stuff….there’s some genuine quality to the performance, big emoting vocals, strings tweaking those emotions, considered playing and ace arrangements. Elbow meets Oasis at their more serious with a choirester quality to the vocal up front. Good work.

 + The Pogue Traders
 + Democratic Punk Rock Karaoke + DJs We Got Killers
The Pogue Traders VS DPRK!- In an exciting new development, our favourite ‘tribute’ band (a term that doesn’t do the Official Pogues‘ approved interpreters of all things Pogue Mahone any kind of justice) and our very favourite six legged super talented living punk, new wave and indie karaoke machine, come together in perfect Friday night party harmony. Thus… The Pogue Traders will perform the wonderful, poetic, genius music of The Pogues in 50 minute sets from just after 9.30pm, and Democratic Punk Rock Karaoke get the whole shebang going via their remarkable ability to interpret a multitude of classic tunes with YOU as The Star. They play, you sing – simple.  7.30 sharp start, for 2 hours of punky karaoke funtime with a bit of a competitive element. (The DPRK will back for Punk’s Payday Karaoke next Friday 27th July and all top interpreters of song will be invited back free of charge for that show to continue as part of  a 2 leg competition) The best fun you can have with your bondage trews and bumflap on whilst downing your 11th pint of Guinness.

Spizz Oil
 + Nuffin
 + Lover
Spizz Oil- 40th anniversary party as guitarist Pete Petrol gets back together with yer man Spizz to recreate those wonderfully stark early records we know and love, post punk essentials on the road to the multi faceted Spizz machine. Signed by Geoff Travis to Rough Trade Records,  Spizz Oil eventually hit the road with Siouxsie and the Banshees and turned all the rights at the NME and Sounds and of course John Peel the main man DJ himself.  Spizz and Petrol split up following the Banshees’ long UK tour IN 1979 and things moved on, as they are inclined to do in Spizzworld.  Fabulous to get the Spizz Oil template again tonight, and if it’s half as good as it was last time we did this 4 years ago it’ll be 6000 Crazy. Well, 160 crazy, that’s the cap, so book early…Nuffin – On 3rd August 1977, Nuffin’ turned up at the legendary Roxy Club to play ‘Audition Night’, only to find that Janet Street-Porter and a TV crew had taken over. Luckily, they were looking for an ‘undiscovered’ band as a counterpoint to all of the hype around at the time. And so a brief snap-shot of the the four Caterham teenagers, strutting their stuff and sharing their take on life, was captured for posterity.  First band to feature 13 year old drummer Dee Generate too, poached by Eater who were all of 15 at the time. A mere forty years later (40th anniversaries all round) they’ve just completed their debut album ‘Crowd Control’, what a wonderful thing what with their charming irreverent old school punk pop played clean and fast just like back in the day. Anyroad, a perfect foil for your Spizz Oil.

Sylvain Sylvain- Full rocknroll solo set plus, storytelling,  projections and Q and A! “Don’t live life worrying about it, just T. Rex the shit out of it.” – The New York Dolls were called many things; glam, proto-punk, hard rock, but are probably best understood as a “dirty rock & roll” band. Combining an aggressively androgynous style with street smart New York attitude and campy humour, the New York Dolls ushered in the era of CBGBs, heroin chic, loud guitars and referential lyrics which gave rise to Patti Smith, The Ramones, Television and many more. Fans of the band range from Guns N’ Roses to Morrissey, who organised the reformation of the band when he curated Meltdown festival in 2004.  Sylvain Sylvain was there from the start, and There’s No Bones in Ice Cream is his story. Taking in his early life in New York, the rise, fall and rise again of the New York Dolls, and all his misadventures between, There’s No Bones in Ice Cream is the true story of one of rock’s greatest, told in his own authentic voice. More dreary observers such as the whispering Bob a job Harris sneered ‘Mock rock’ thru bad hippy teeth, but a hundred nascent punks broke their E.L.P LPs over their knees and eagerly awaited punk rock. With wonderful projections of photographs from Syl’s personal archive, a Q and A by Tony Bugbear and a whole set of Syl’s sensational sound today. Not to be missed for all Jet Boys and Jet Girls. With thanks to Black Dog MuzikThe London SS– The proto punk meeting of Stooges, Dolls and MC5 fevered minds that once featured Brian James (The Damned, Lords Of The New Church), Mick Jones (The Clash, B.A.D) and Tony James (Generation X, Sigue Sigue Sputnik) also featured ex Hollywood Brats guitarist Eunan Brady, who reformed the band a few years ago with a bunch of fabulous seasoned  punk n roll players including singer Jimi McDonald and second guitar Taj Sagoo. A perfect way to kick off an evening with a Doll from New York City, because for those of you who thought the ‘SS’ was something dodge and fascistic, just remember our very special headline act tonight is S for Syl S for Sylvain. Damn cool.

Strong.  Charmides- Indie pop, upbeat and melodic, harks back to classic old school The L.A’s but there’s more recent influences too, Artic Monkeys maybe.

Smashing It Up
 + (A Decade of Chaos With The Damned)
 + Kieron Tyler + Tony Bugbear And Julie Hamill
 + The Dublin Castle Rock And Roll Book Club
Rock And Roll Book Club – Smashing It Up. A Decade of Chaos With The Damned By Kieron Tyler – The Sex Pistols, The Clash and The Damned were the originators of British punk rock, forming a three-pronged attack on a self-satisfied rock elite and were the inspiration to a new generation of music fans: the fans who would define the future. Forming in 1976, The Damned went on to be the first punk band from the UK to put out a single – New Rose in 1976, an album – Damned Damned Damned in 1977, and the first British punk act to tour the US.  They went on to have 9 singles feature on the UK Top 40 singles chart (so far!)…. Putting The Dammed in context for the first time as one of the UK’s great rock bands, Smashing It Up is the history of this important band and their original members. Packed with tales of the band’s encounters with other key musical figures of the time, Smashing It Up also investigates their permanently strained relationship with the wider music business in general. Julie Hamill and Tony Gleed host this DC RNR Book Club spesh with the usual kick ass Q and A with Kieron Tyler plus bespoke roots, shoots and fruits Damned good soundtrack topping and tailing the experience. Strawberries all round… Drawing on interviews with the original band members, their friends, associates and eye witnesses on their chaotic journey, Smashing It Up is the definitive history of The Damned, putting the record straight once and for all placing them as pivotal ground breakers of punk rock. About the author: Keiron Tyler writes for Mojo and The Arts Desk, and has written for The Independent, The Guardian, Q, Billboard and Music Week. He is a lifelong fan of The Damned.

Beat Goes Bang
Beat Goes Bang– After performing with The Beat and releasing three albums in the early 80’s, which included a string of hit singles such as ‘Mirror in the Bathroom’, ‘Tears of a Clown’, ‘Ranking Full Stop’ and ‘Too Nice to Talk To’, original drummer Everett Morton (the beat behind The Beat- and a fantastic percussive talent) has now taken it a step further and introduced a brand new incarnation of that feeling and sound, joining forces with former Dexys Midnight Runners and General Public keyboard player Mickey Billingham and Neil Deathridge of International Beat with The Beat Goes Bang. As you might expect from Everett’s deft reggae chops at the drumstool, BGB channel The Beat, but with a more laid back and soulful reggae vibe on board. Perfect Summer music.

The Small Wonders– so what better than to pair them up with our very own twisted punky covers coves The Small Wonders? Joy Division , Buzzcocks , Clash , and a bit more up to date with the likes of Kaiser Chiefs . Played the Castle quite a lot in the 1990s these guys when we were young, dumb and full of it. Better compare set lists guys…
