Twink- Not many people truly match the expectations of the proviso ‘legend’ but where Twink is concerned legendary status is assured and then some. From Tomorrow to The Pink Fairies via Syd Barrett’s Stars and Hawkwind, Twink is an original counter culturalist psychedlicist mover shaker and he don’t sit still brothers and sisters. Apart from still hitting those amazing wigout drums Twink has also recently produced excellent new solo material showcasing his songwriterly quality and Barrett/Ayers shaped Anglo psych pop nous. He’s a fabulous act all right, it’s so good to welcome Twink to The Dublin Castle tonite. And ably backed and supported by The Lysergics too- Velvets, Stooges and early Pink Floyd textures layered and deconstructed to make for a beautiful rush of psych soul. STOP PRESS- Special Guest Anne Pigalle will be joining Twink and the Lysergics on stage for a couple of numbers. From Paris to London to L.A Ms Pigalle (‘the last Chanteuse’) has never pulled her artistic punches. Chanson and punk rock combine with the avant garde to produce a very French and very sensual take on both punk aesthetics and cabaret culture. Bon soir Sex, death et tout le reste jamais.  Motovamp– ‘Raw power injected rock ‘n’ roll fronted by Los Angeles blues punk siren, Lily Marlene featuring JD KickDrum on the drums, the elusive Jared Fisher on lead guitar and garage rock stylings from James Meynell on bass. Expect a lethal dose of Russ Meyer-moto babe-psychedelic-garage-punk-madness- cool beans for you if you dig- The Stooges, MC5, The Ramones, Little Richard, Turbonegro, Black Sabbath, Motorhead, Rolling Stones, The Dead Boys, Screaming Jay Hawkins, Gun Club, The Sonics, New York Dolls….Invisible Eyes-  Frome/Bath based ambient/dance/techno project Invisible System has extended into this rocknroll outing…more a meld of groove riff type psychedelia (Hawkwind, Here And Now, Ozrics) and a bit of Loop like post Stooges wall of ramalama. They do like a ‘Feral psyche out’… Wayne From Buckhurst Hill – Nicely ‘Knowing’ arthouse rocknroll with a lived in boho vocal care of one Wayne Kirven that resembles Tom Petty getting all beat generation meditational…good crisp rocking fare in love with Soho in the ’50s and ’60s- think Beat Girl, 2 Eyes coffee bar, that boxer wot got murdered, clip joints, frothy coffee with or without…..nice. An original Mod, Wayne from Buckhurst Hill was achildhood friend of Marc Bolan, is a well known modernist and has been a part of the London fashion scene for over fifty years. Now happening live with the help of Danny & the Champions of the World..  DJs We Got Killers– a cavalcade of head stretching, freakout party sounds from then and now via the inbetween times.

Arrive Early To Ensure Catching All 3 Bands- Running Order Decided On The Night! In Conjunction With Undercover Pussycat & The Dirty Johnsons– Our favourite exponents of true Cat Power…the grind and grit of punk rock seen thru feline eyes, those of amazing front woman Puss Johnson, guitar overlord Jake Johnson, and drums dynamo Ant Johnson. It’s as powerful a sound as you could hope for, accompanied by a singularly dynamic performance from Puss upfront (and right in amongst the audience of course). Never fail to hit the button dead on. For fans of The Stooges, The Cramps, Jon Spencer, Sex Pistols, The Kills…. The Witchdoktors – ‘Kicking the world’s ass one day at a time’…we hear ya.. punk rock is in the mix (Ramones, Clash, Pistols, Damned etc) plus plenty of trashy rock’n’roll-a-billy, and a dash of 60s Psyche-Out Garage, even a little jaundiced country ..great stuff for punks and teds alike. East Town Pirates –  Formed in smugglers dens along the East Suffolk coastline, the East Town Pirates made their way through the punk dives and back bars of ye Olde Ipswich Towne. Armed to the teeth with infectious tunes, they sharpened their hooks in raids on taverns and alehouses around East Anglia before taking their explosive live show on the road and laying waste to the rest of England, Ireland and France. ‘Motorhead meets The Pogues’….

Slender Pins-Punchy taut post punkery with elastic bass, split splat sparky drumming and arcing abrasive guitars and a melodically inclined new wave vocal fulla vim. Love it. Elements of The Stranglers, Devo, The Clash, Gang Of 4, Pil…ace…great songs. One-Eyed Disco-hook- laden, edgy indie-punk, really strong tunes with rousing choruses, great stuff positively bristles with energy . there’s a bit of an Artic Monkeys vibe without really sounding like em, Fab. Hands Of Industry – indie electro, harks back to early Human League, especially the vocals, the keys are on a more Depeche Mode trip and there’s some nice solid live drums. A goth element too, Sisters Of Mercy in particular…nicely crafted.  Modern Men-Formed just over 10 months ago, Modern Men have had a lightning debut year bringing their playful, intelligent and refreshingly bold alt-pop to the London live scene. Marrying tight, jagged guitars, yelping vocals and infectious hooks, the band create unashamedly rich pop songs, exploring the anxieties of life with a frank, and at times, painfully honest intensity recalling the spikey art pop of Talking Heads, XTC and Everything Everything. Twister – arrive nice and early and sing ‘Bollocks To Brexit’ with Twister. The punk pop Britpoppers with tunes and tood to die for. Antics assured! Much much fun and on stage half 7 sharp so be there or be Leaver.

Dayglo! The Poly Styrene Story
 + Rock N Roll Book Club
 + Celeste Bell + Zoe Howe
 + DJs
Rock N Roll Book Club : Dayglo! The Poly Styrene Story- with Celeste Bell and Zoe Howe. In conversation with Tony Gleed and Julie Hamill.- Poly Styrene was a singer-songwriter, an artist, a free-thinker, a post-modern style pioneer and a lifelong spiritual seeker: a true punk icon. But this rebel queen with the cheeky grin was also a latter-day pop artist with a wickedly perceptive gift for satirizing the world around her – her brightly coloured, playful aesthetic sharply at odds with the stark monochrome style and nihilism of punk. Here, for the first time, the vibrant jigsaw of Poly s inspiring and often moving story has been lovingly pieced together by her daughter, singer-songwriter Celeste Bell, and writer/artist Zoë Howe (author of the acclaimed Typical Girls? The Story Of The Slits, amongst many others). From growing up mixed-race in Brixton in the 1960s, to being at the forefront of the emerging punk scene with X-Ray Spex in the 1970s, to finding faith with the Hare Krishna movement, to balancing single motherhood with a solo music career and often debilitating mental health issues, the book honestly and openly explores Poly s exceptional life, up until her untimely passing in 2011. Based on interviews with those who knew and loved Poly whether personally or through music, this oral history book includes testimonies from Vivienne Westwood, Don Letts, Glen Matlock, Jonathan Ross, Neneh Cherry, The Slits Tessa Pollitt, Thurston Moore, Jon Savage, and many others. Heavily illustrated throughout including personal photographs, flyers from the punk scene and hand-drawn artwork and lyrics for X-Ray Spex and beyond the book beautifully captures Poly Styrene s creative and personal legacy, reminding us that if anyone had the power to turn our worlds dayglo, it was her.  Celeste Bell is the lead singer of Celeste Dos Santos and The Tabloid Queens, narrator and co-writer of the documentary I Am A Cliche and Poly Styrene’s daughter.  Zoe Howe is a writer, musician and visual artist based in Essex. N.B– a ‘Special, Limited Edition’ of the book will also be published, which will be available to purchase freshly signed by the authors on the night….for just £10!…more details to follow.

With influences from grunge, stoner rock, new wave and punk, the band blend big riffs with melodic hooks giving a powerful platform for lyrics full of bite and edge with clear reference to the social commentary of The Clash and the Manics . “Lunatics Lost reinvents and renews your faith in rock in a way that satisfies all the promise of post – punk to a level other bands can only aspire to.

Folk Devils
 + Inca Babies
 + Turning Black Like Lizards
Folk Devils – Formed by Co. Durham native Ian Lowery (formerly of The Wall and Ski Patrol) this ace band released several acclaimed singles including “Hank Turns Blue” and “Beautiful Monster” and recorded several sessions for BBC Radio’s John Peel Show. Musically their heady brew of swampy rock on a bed of bastardized blues created a vehicle for Lowery’s increasingly misanthropic worldview. A well-honed gutter poet since the early days of punk, Ian developed an idiosyncratic style, fusing a natural gift for sly wordplay and a well turned snarky phrase with his often vitriolic and poignant lyrics channeled through an explosive onstage persona. Folk Devils opened for the likes of The Fall, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Gun Club and Spacemen 3, and also toured extensively throughout Europe. Singer Ian Lowery sadly passed away in 2001. The band reformed in 2016 with new singer Dave Hodgson (once of Parting Shots)to celebrate the release of the retrospective CD/2xLP “Beautiful Monsters” featuring remastered audio of all the band’s studio and demo recordings. Big faves of Bugbear back in the day, finger poised on the pause button as Peely played the underground hits. Fantastic to host their appearance tonight. Inca Babies – Inca Babies were formed in Manchester’s infamous Hulme district in 1982 and their music was a raunchy Death Ray twang from a punk-trash, Americana perspective. Radio 1 DJ John Peel and his producer John Walters heard the Inca’s first single The Interior and offered them a session. It was to be the first of four they did for Radio 1 between 1984-87. With two number one slots in the Indie single chart and a top 5 album, Rumble, the Incas were flying high. Like all good things they came to an end as fashions changed and members came and went, but the band reformed in 2007 with Gold Blade drummer Rob Haynes, a new album followed but all this was sadly marred by the death of bassist Bill Marten. The band was put on hold while they came to terms with this loss, but it was eventually decided to keep Bill’s legacy alive by continuing and finishing off the album they had started writing. The most recent album The Stereo Plan was released in September 2014. Still going strong, and great to have them in the DC tonite. Perfect partners for The Folk Devils. As are…Turning Black Like Lizards – New Brum band with some classy and indeed classic Brit indie noire reference points. A bit of Bunnymen, some Jesus and Mary Chain and Joy Division/New Order for sure. A very fine performance and assured at that, with beefy drums, clinically cool guitars, probing bass and a calm yet powerful vocal. All very cool indeed.

Time Dilation Unit crash landed out of an open worm hole in August 2018 with debut single ‘Pain in My Side’ – a tale of paranoid self diagnosis using the internet, which was picked up by Steve Lamacq on BBC 6 Music. Based between Kent, London and outer space, the band create stomping, rocket fueled psychedelic space circus glam/rock, with sax, synths and heavy, heavy bass. Second single Oliver Twist maintains the quirky quality control, an abstract psych groove that opens out into a big 70’s Stonesesque glam stomp with swirling sax and screaming vox.  A band going places and with skronk aplenty! NB Time Dilation Unit on stage 7.30pm sharp.

Passion and fire on stage, really get the room going and have the eager fans to prove it. The Prods – High octane punk rock and roll with massive chords and massive attitude of a Godfathers, Pistols, Heartbreakers kind- yes,  a massive guitar sound, and with that great harmonies..but also a beautifully balanced modicum of wry, rapscallion humour.   ‘Losing at darts, beer and motorbikes since 2010. ‘ Gawd bless em.  The Clockworks – yer more interesting end of the indie rock spectrum, referencing The Streets and Arctic Monkeys in the wryly observational and deadpan delivery, but musically on a more post punk tip, so think very early XTC (lovely dreamy thoughts) . From Galway originally and new relocated to London, Bonkersland.

Miceberg-Skewed Indie rock or wonky pop if you like..influenced by Nirvana and Queen apparantly, you can detect certain elements of Nirvanawith  it’s slacker-grunge sound, but maybe not Queen, interesting and compelling stuff though, has a certain charm and doesn’t really sound like anyone out there, due to it’s out-there-ness.‘Better than Gay Dad’ – Nick Crowe Gay Dad‘More hooks than a Cornish fishing village’ – Simon Edge Attitude ‘Miceberg put lead in your pencil.’ Sean Keaveny BBC Radio 6 Music’Sharp as a tack, smooth as silk’ Lauren Laverne BBC Radio 6 Music CuriousHour- Catchy Female fronted blues infused rock with a wash of Psychedelia Mad Chen 84-Bonkers free form artnik stuff with elements of Faust, Beefheart, Slap Happy, The Fall.. quite varied from skronky sax riff outs to plaintive navel watching and robotic riddim based backgrounds for narrative numbers.

The Filthy Tongues
 + Special Guests
The Filthy Tongues-Dirty post punk and grinding poetic folk rock full of noirish but playful potency. A Scottish band who have been around since the ’80s  featuring ex members of Goodbye Mr McKenzie, you’d maybe compare this to Nick Cave on first listen but actually have far more in common with Crime And The City Solution and The Triffids if you must go all Antipodean with your indie noir references. Guaranteed though, is that this is truly great stuff,  with nuances of Iggy, Johnny Cash, Wire….but always utterly Filthy Tongues in realization, with the assured Boheme of Martin Metcalfe at the fore, Scots accent thankfully intact, as tales of woe and wonder are woven.  “These songs wrap themselves around you like a warm blanket and effortlessly soothe your soul.”

The Stukas
 + The Sha La Las
 + The Subterranean Gentlemen
The Stukas – highly loved at the time so needless to say even more loved now they’re back- our very favourite Germanic fighter plane cum original reformed new wave / powerpop act. ‘Sport, Sport I love Sport, Running And Jumping I’m A Physical Sort’ …not many, cranked up for mods, rockers, punks and everybody else come to that. Great! The Sha La La’s – Psych-mod groovers embracing something of Paul Weller‘s mid ’90’s stuff via Spencer Davis Group, and they sure are seasoned players, have the chops, and are a stunningly good live proposition The Subterranean Gentlemen– a nifty modernist turn who also contain some members of The Stukas.

Lord Numb- Iggy, Bowie,Bauhaus and Wire get given a hard rock guitar kicking tempered with some cutting electronica and rumblesome dubby drum and bass workouts. Rock And Roll is not only alive but thriving in the hands of discerning artists coz Numb is The Nuts Hercules II- All star all noisenik heroes of London Grunge and Lurch and general post punk mayhem Herc 2 (named after the Steptoe and Son horse natch)  return to lay down slabs of multi layered noise on a Sabs and Sunn O meets Stooges via Wooden Shjips tip.

Resonance-Trio from San Fransisco via London doing stripped down snappy blues rock with a soupcon of funk, bit of a Lenny Kravitz vibe in places.

You could say he is something of an anthropologist, and you’d be right. Leisure is a cognitive and evolutionary anthropologist with his guitar and without it’

West 54-Superb 10 piece band playing the best modern Funk and Jazz-Funk with verve and panache. Full brass section and percussion a MASSIVE sound.

Leah Vee-Rapper, soul siren, teacher, empowered female example to the yoot dem- all here in Leah Vee’s wonderful lyricism and spiritually imbued nu soul and trippy Brithop vehicle. Beautifully wrought head music for the heart. Sister Mercedes- began as the altere ego of Darren Van Asten (guitar and vocals). It has since grown three more heads: John Devolle (lead guitar), Dominic Pettit (drums) and Rafael Curita (bass).John & Darren played in Junkbox together before and John has played in various other bands including The Intolerable Kidd & Friends and The Lonesome Cowboys from Hell. They live in London. Vianne- Vianne is a London based project rooted in a similar musical territory to the likes of Zero 7, The Cinematic Orchestra, José González and alt-J.

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.
