Danny Burton –   a fabulously soulful vocal and a lot of Stones come Springsteen come Gram Parsons country rock n blues grooviness in the backing. Danny has been in bands with the likes of Zak Starkey and certainly knows the ropes. Great songs performed with passion. Karkosa-Birmingham based indie rockers, driving tunes bristling with energy and actual choruses!! Nods to Catfish and The Bottlemen in places. Raul and the Rockets-Dynamic 70’s sounding art-rock, think Bowie circa man who sold the world, really strong tunes and a standout lead vocal.

Arna Rox and The Truckstops are an original blues band from Melbourne, Australia, led by fierce front woman Arna Rox. Famous for her high energy, unpolished, unapologetic stage presence, Rox commands the space with her equally raw husky vocals.  Rox is a force to be reckoned with. Having spent the past 7 years as lead singer of international rock band Trainwreck Trio, she now brings her wine soaked, tobacco fuelled vocals to the genre she was made for, the blues. Enter The Truckstops, where co-writers and collaborators Chris Canning (harp/sax) and Steve Basenfelder (guitar) support Rox’s explosive vocals with an honest, earthy sound Caskets-London four piece straddling metal, doom and grunge. Think thick, dripping slabs of Alice in Chains swagger punctuated by bursts of High on Fire aggression. Snarling vocals battle blistering guitar riffs as monolithic bass licks grind out an unstoppable path beneath a punishing volley of drums. Nothin2Heavy….a plethora of angst, confusion, drama, and free expression.  Their crunchy riffs varying from a punk edge to melancholy rage gives a grunge experience for almost everybody besides the most delicate of snowflakes. Hunted By Elephants-Inspired by the rock classics of the 70s, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Uriah Heep and Rainbow Hunted By Elephants are a high-energy trio renewing the time-honoured union of soaring vocals, growling riffs and energising drum beats.

The Irregulars – ska/reggae covers, with emphasis on the rocksteady and boss reggae flavas…for example a very nice take on The Wailers’ Simmer Down..so not all the usual 2 tone staples (oops no pun intended) going down here…but they do those too!…Damn fine weekender party band for sure. Brunk- with a floating line up of brass blasting bohemians Brunk put the brass into punk and give it a huge dose of ska. A joyous approach to some familiar punk and 2 Tone classics. The Shabs–  a Folk Punk band from Cape Town South Africa. Drawing influences from artists such as Frank Turner, Erik Petersen and Against Me!, the band rock  anthemic, raw, singalong instant classics.

Returning to the U.K, James brought back big influences from across the Atlantic, and blended them with his British-born idols. With nods to the likes of James Taylor, Ryan Adams, Paul McCartney, Elliott Smith, Nick Drake and Paul Simon, this Southampton songwriter is set to showcase the technicolour melody and incessant lyricism of his album in waiting.The Dead Freights-Formed in 2015, The Dead Freights are an indie rock’n’roll band from Southampton, UK.

The Dead Freights prowl any stage with a classic, contagious rock’n’roll attitude and a strong arsenal of suggestive, driving anthems.  After playing in and around the UK for three years, the band signed to indie label Mi7 Records in mid-2018 and recorded at Abbey Road Studios in late-2018 and released their debut single “Reasons & Walls.

Sleepercurve – Intense and wiry alt rock with keys and a straining at the leash vocal. Velvet Starlings –Rather tasty American  3 piece who embrace blues based 60’s Rock N Roll with some lovely trashy organ, a bit of young Eric Burdon in the lead vocal and Mamas and Papas vocal/songsmith elements. They match it all up with contemporary indie touches ( a lot of Jack White and a bit of Arctic Monkeys), impressive songs, and a great 1967 vintage look. Some do say Jake Bugg , the Artics and Jack White rolled into one! Supported by Acura, Honda, Orange amps and Roland / Boss UK. Also, their new video has artwork from Shepard Fairey (the U.S Banksy) and the band are primed to to play Woodstock 50… The Bipolar – dark and cerebral indie from La Belgique, melancholic yet uplifting in equal measure,  New Order with nice hints of The Rapture, good stuff. 14 Carat Grapefruit – Exponents of comedic punk and twisted rock n roll with emphasis on the fun via some brutal satire. Re reformed for your pleasure (on stage 7.45).

High end musicianship and star quality to the fore. Single Launch Party! Bauplan – Costello/Squeeze/Nick Lowe oriented rock pop with a tinge of blue eyed soul.  Hammond organ swells and and guitars and rhythm grind with grit. A big sound and good tunes. The Dead Melody -full on stampeding, bestial rocknroll with Pistols/Motorhead/Ramones/Wildhearts elements and a righteously rasping vocal …powerfully wrought and good to go. Black Rooster – Primal punk riot grrrl duo pumping out righteous raw songs of rebellion and outrage. Great stuff. A perky punked out White Stripes template, which is ace, but they are in fact looking for a bassist…it could be you..

Clem Cattini
 + My Life Through The Eye Of A Tornado
 + Rock n Roll Book Club + Q & A
 + DJ Joe Geek
Clem Cattini is the legendary drummer whose career spans over 60 years, beginning in the mid-1950s. In 1960 Clem teamed up with Johnny Kidd and The Pirates, resulting in the classic recording of arguably Britain’s greatest rock and roll record, Shakin’ All Over. Clem became involved with maverick record producer Joe Meek and The Tornados were formed as the Holloway Rd house band, which led to the recording of the worldwide hit Telstar, the first British record to reach the number one spot in the American Billboard charts in 1963.  When an opportunity arose to play studio sessions, meaning he could still enjoy playing music without the hassles of being constantly out on the road, Clem jumped at the chance. Meeting up and drinking coffee in cafes in Denmark Street with the likes of guitarists Big Jim Sullivan and Jimmy Page, bassist John Paul Jones, and drummers Bobby Graham and Tony Meehan, they were hired to put down the tracks for hundreds of hit records during those crazy days of the 60s and the 70s. Clem’s career included a decade as a member of The Top of the Pops Orchestra. He was approached for tours by numerous stars, as well as being headhunted for the band that would become Led Zeppelin, and also for Paul McCartney’s Wings, both of whom he decided to politely turn down. During his session days Clem played on recordings for artists as diverse as Cliff Richard, Ike and Tina Turner, Lou Reed, Lulu, Tom Jones, T. Rex and The Who, in the process racking up a mighty 42 No. 1 UK hit singles. Set against the backdrop of cultural and social development of post-war Britain, Through The Eye Of A Tornado is an affectionate look back over an unparalleled career, with Clem and friends recalling the early days of the British rock and roll scene around Soho, the life of a session musician, and revealing the stories behind the some of the best-known music made in the UK over the past 60 years. Written by Bip Wetherell and Clive Smith with Clem Cattini. Foreword by Jimmy Tarbuck MBE. Q and A by Julie Hamill with interruptions and sonic illustrations by the mysterious Joe Geek. Could this be Tarby himself?! (No it’s Tony Bugbear)…

Beautifully wrought head music for the heart. The Reformers- Spritely twisty turny alterno guitar pop with a skanking punkinesss…in fact they’re a ska band (originals mind) but a very punky one- as if 1st album Clash were playing ska basically.  Elbrano-Groove rock but played at a fair old clip, there’s a early Thrash Metal element at play here and the soulful vocal nods to yer more cerebral grunge, prog breakdowns too, a pretty unique sound lots going on but never loses the plot. All held together with decent hooks/melodies and incisive playing. District Motion punky but melodic and thoughtful indie rock- influences come from the likes of Coldplay, The Killers, Stereophonics, Green Day, Oasis.

Here’s where the contemporary realization of she punk is at it’s most striking-the root of Poly Styrene, Ari Up, Siouxsie et al.  The Blunders – .politically charged  and insistently punky, with tight and disciplined grooves., a punk band with a varied palate of influences, from Citizen Fish to The Libertines via Killing Joke and Crass.

Anne Pigalle– Parisienne teenager Anne Pigalle hung out with Glen Matlock and other British punks back in Paris then brought her music to Anglo-Saxon rock & roll and the late punk scene en Londres. Working legendary club nights in the late ’80s at Café de Paris and Madame Jojos, she then disappeared to California and created a music-film project in LA with Donald Cammell. Back in London Pigalle reinvented herself as a painter, photographer, performance and multi-media artist ( Amérotica ,  Ecstase). From cold wave chanson to post punk jazz Anne’s music and vocal delivery is always esoteric, astounding and exciting… and that’s before we get on to the remarkable erotic poetry. Tonight Anne Pigalle showcases her superb new album L’Ecstase. ‘Engaging, exotic, alluring, the self styled Last Chanteuse sighs and emotes a world weary ennui. Snatched glimpse of old Soho refracted through an absinthe haze. Glorious, libertine, intoxicating…’ Classic Rock June 2019.  This evening we also give you three of the finest burlesque dancers (Rachel Darq, Manon Aquilina, Dolly Blow Up) and stunning performance art  from Julie Rose who explores the body as mise en scene.Using experimental music,  innovative narrative form and fragments of sound and image deployed in live collages that create uncanny meanings and unexpected humour.  Also the amazing Rude Mechanicals, tonight playing as a duo- artful jazzbo slinkiness and cabaret poetics and brilliantly off kilter but accessible vocalising from the remarkable front woman Miss Joe Roberts. Plus a little bit of  full throttle rocknroll with The Featherz -sassy space glam with a hint of punk in the super singalong full on choruses. Rotten Bliss– the remarkable work of one Jasmine Pender, a cellist and so much more… ‘violent, warm and weird visions’, yes… equally inspired by the wild physicality of Jacqueline du Pre and the shrieking glory of a cello played through FX pedals, Rotten Bliss packs diverse influences into an elemental voyage, raging from tender a capella lyrical fantasies through to ecstatic nihilism. And can sometimes be seen performing in 11th Hour Adventists (with Jowe Head, ex-Swell Maps) and False Echo (with Tim Bowen, ex-Chrome Hoof).  Her debut album, The Nightwatchman Sings, was released in October 2017 on the Reverb Worship label.

 Inego – Low slung New Order shaped fare… Hooky like bass and Brotherhood shaped synth colour though the vocal is more moderne poptabulous than Barney like, but Inego certainly have the Joy Division/New Order influence and thereby fit this bill sweetly. Hunter’s Loaf – ‘A very laid back heavy metal band’… well believe that if you like, but what we have here is more akin to early Mogwai to my lugs or even Rothko, not to mention God Speed…another kind of supergroup formed by people old enough and distressed enough to know better… but they got the muse man. Former Bull and Gate promoter Phil Avey formed the band to play a tribute gig to the mercurial Tommy the old pot man at said much missed infamous indie venue. He got Alex Vald in to the band too, another ex Bull and Gate promoter! Where are we Bugbear boys going wrong? I must form a very uptight folk band.

Roddy Radiation’s Skabilly Rebels – The Specials may go on without that classic sweet Roddy lead guitar of yore, and without a fair few other elements too, but don’t worry about, no need to be wondering now, just enjoy the Skabilly Rebels. The yearning and zippy licks of Mr Rad’s playing ain’t bin dimmed none. Specials classics, excellent Roddy originals and other surprise gems make the cut and it’s a punky reggae rocknroll party to die for. Always a great night out in The Dublin, dancing shoes essential. Steve Hooker Stripped Down Stompin Band – A super charged dirty Essex Delta rocknroll trio fronted by a Hooker…stop it now! The very talented Steve Hooker that is, a great guitarist who masters a grinding riffology going and takes it to the dancefloor with a sleazy Link Wray twang…elements of The Feelgoods, early Stones, Bo Diddley and George Thorogood too

The Vibrators – From Pure Mania in 1977 onwards The Vibrators set out their stall as the accomplished but still utterly kick ass end of Romantic punk n roll, showing the upstarts how it’s done. Searing, scintillating speedin’ rock and roll that they pulse along at such a pace commanded brilliantly by long standing lynchpin Eddie at the drums, you can’t possibly relax yer having such a good time. They don’t ease off the gas for a second.  With The Members’ Nigel Bennett on guitar and bass ace Pete chopping out the riddim. Hopefully original songsmith Knox will be popping by from RNR Rescue next door for a bit of Baby Baby action too… Steve Hooker Band – super charged dirty Essex Delta rocknroll trio, get a reet good and grinding riffology going and take it to the dancefloor with a sleazy Link Wray twang…damn good. Nuffin –  the legendary Roxy Club  ‘Audition Night’/Janet Street-Porter aTV spot captured the youthful ‘Boys who like to do Nuffin’ for posterity.  A mere forty two years later their debut album ‘Crowd Control’ appears, showcasing their charming, irreverent old school punk pop played clean and fast just like back in the day. Arrive nice and early for Nuffin!
