Lavender Hills-Driving indie rock that nods to Artic Monkeys and Biffy Clyro on the faster paced numbers and Radiohead on the more reflective cerebral tunes, bit of a funk rock undertow at times, strong tunes too The Bronsons–  pub rock and rhythm n booze revivalists in a Brinsley Scwartz via Ducks Deluxe sense, plus a bit of acidic Dr Feelgood punky boogie woogie oh yes. The Count Bishops and The Inmates are also reference points via a little counter cultural trippy blues. A great night out in themselves. Eliphant- Psych pop , strains of late 60’s U.s garage pop too, but this has that R n B fuelled slightly whimsical late 60’s brit feel, decently hooky and an authentic retro sound, fine work. Transmetropolitan- – 4 piece 2 chaps 2 chicks playing folk (there’s some very fetching fiddle) – but kinda lofi indie psych folk- which is great- somewhere between The Velvets and the Fairports with Nancy Sinatra on vox….alluring stuff, I like.

Pussycat And The Dirty Johnsons– Pussycat in the Dublin is always immense, most definitely not to be missed. They just get better and better, the intensity of their very own brand of punk rock, the quality of the material, it’s all remarkably uplifting. The Stooges, Pistols, Stooges, Cramps and The Ramones all resonate but none of them guys had the confrontational but sympatico Puss up front challenging the audience at every whoop and yelp and delivering such monstrously cool songs. Why aint they massive part 94….. Army Of Skanks– Powerfully hewn girls to the fore (well the drummer is a geez) punk pop n roll with a Runaways meets Babes In Toyland feel. Excellent, what a night you lucky bleeders. The FeatherzDanie Cox’s Bowie and glam informed punk rock passion play. Ace songs aplenty, she can definitely write em. A corrective aural attack on all things mundane and murky in a post Trump world. Anarchistwood- Taking searing acid singed psych punk, cranium scrapingly intense and played with sass and joy and imbued with just a whiff of cool conceptual punk pranksterism hese anarchists wood give the MC5 and The Stooges a run for their ramalama. Another shit hot outfit with strong woman upfront, Juno be praised.

Coridor –Perky high drama indie rock that reminds of early Suede only with a gnarlier more romantically wasted vocal. Give it some welly they do too and give real good dynamics. Chasing Deer are an exciting and energetic pop/rock band from the Midlands – living, performing and writing music full time in London. Think The Beatles, Bowie and The Lumineers. Mostly acoustic new folk in reealization, in line with a mellower Frank Turner, nice vocals with subtle harmonies and a bit of piano, very chilled. Man Can’t Fly-elements of I Am Kloot, Elbow and Mumfords.…but also some powerfully hewn Biffy Clyro type elements…they’ve recently had some daytime BBC Radio 1 love too. White Heat-Artful indie pop with skittering drums a soulsearching vocal and an experimental edge to the arrangements reminds of Throwing Muses in places, also Firehose, fab stuff.

The Pogue Traders- are of course endorsed by The Pogues themselves and play the Pogue Mahone back catalogue so remarkably well they’d bring tears of joy to any old pair of brown eyes…the music of The Pogues, played with passion, aplomb and unnerving accuracy in The Dublin Castle– frankly you won’t get a better night out. Fiesta! Michael Anthony– Young lad with an acoustic guitar and a resonant vocal doing a mix of originals and covers (Ed Sheeren songs a speciality mum)

Spizz Energi- It’s that time of year again, everything’s blooming lovely and the heat is rising from the street…best hop into Camden Town’s finest pub venue for a refreshing beer and punk rocknroll immersion.  The Midsummer Spizzual is an annual event that has become legendarily popular, coz there’s a legend at the helm, yer man Spizz, still packing em in with his excellent kick ass band. Here Come The Machines…first new Spizz product in a while out on Flicknife Records, surely a marriage made in heaven? Bexatron-Who said kick ass? Kick ass punk n roll boys n girls who wanna be your New Yoik Doll, which is cool even if they do come form Londinium…glammed up, done with sass and suss, plenty of Runaways, Blondie and yes New York Dolls flavours to feast on here. Damn good fun. Daddy Those Men Scare Me- More prosaically down to earth and utterly English in their punk rock approach, the deliriously good Daddies have nearly been doing it as long as Spizz…well not quite, but their Stranglers/Members/Squeeze informed crafted indeed crafty punk pop is a joy we’ve beheld at Buggerbear since oooooh 1994, wowsers. The Evil Litter-3 piece art-punk outfit, with searing guitar, clattering polyrhytmic drums and intense edgy vox, shades of new wave in the overall sound

Brain Of J- Pearl Jam are an American institution that burst outta Seattle, Washington, in 1990. Brain Of J are a wonderful tribute to that influential act who do it incredibly well… it could well be Eddie Vedder, Mike McCready, Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament up there should you close yer peepers. Jeremy, Better Man, Black etc etc , all present and correct for your pleasure. Davey James– Rootsy acoustic folk blues sounding authentically American yet from London on a bit of a George Thorogood tip maybe, also sounds not unlike a blues enthused stripped down Kings Of Leon, nice. TC Country- a youthful bunch playing a kind of blues tinged alt country fun Southern Fried boogie ting. Sizzlin’

The Ska Vengers-New Delhi based band who blend ‘ska’ rhythms with elements of dub, punk, jazz and rap to come up with a form of music that is refreshingly different, energetic and highly danceable. Absolutely rocked the Dublin last time round on a ht and sultry September night with their partyhearty blend…and all the boys were a little bit in love with singer Begum X and all the girls same with her male counterpart Dehli Sultanate. Here to hit Glastonbury Festival not once but twice, such is their quality. Back by popular demand- the masters of Bollywood ska supreme… One Thousand Things- Grandiose but hooky indie pop with soaring melodies and a crisp production, think Maccabees, Vaccines, radio-friendly, stadium bound tunes aplenty. Leisure Tank–   gal plays guitar, chap plays drums…. lofi, scratchy, syncopated stuff with tunefulness in the vocal lines via Beefheartian tendencies in the music…vocally more on a B52s thru Exene from X in the vocal stylings…or Sheryl Crow even…the music is quite outre though…damn interesting… They look good too, like RNR Grifters…

The Flicks-All girl pop punk, really catchy tunes, bags of charm and all good players, a brit update of The Runaways, great stuff Red Tape Riot-Sublime and inventive dream-pop from South Africa, a gently ebbing flow, but with actual pop hooks to hold the attention, like a wistful psychedelic take on bands like Bloc Party, also Bastille and at times The Cure. Wake Up Leo- Hooky rock pop with  clipped My Sharona type guitars and other ’80s new wavery …keys, Prince-ish touches, falsetto vox, all executed with panache Sons- “Brothers Lee and Nick Meldrum hit you with such sheer velocity and volume you are sure to still be vibrating long after their set has concluded. Combining relentlessly driving drone with catchy punk hooks, why smack them with a wall of sound when you can cover them with concrete? Words don’t cover it, people really need to see them live for the full glory!’ The Palette Social-  A cerebral and beautifully realized take on prog tinged alt rock, Mew spring to mind also Oceansize. Compelling stuff yet never loses sight of the tune/hooks.

Nuns Of The Tundra- Super Furries shaped riff centric psych indie…so a probing rhythm guitar, some laconic vocalising and background wibbles of guitar and keys…really is very early SFA, a bit of Pavement maybe and Dandy Warhols..all that. Mind you they also get all balls out rawk at times on the guitar front, but maintaining the ethereal sardonic indie approach…Damn fine. Junkyard Choir– Deliverance! Swamp punk inspired backwoods and desert psych of the highest glade water mark played by a god fearing trio of drrrty rockers. Wonderfully laconic but blistering to boot. Meat Puppets, Giant Sand, Canned Heat, Credence…The Raven Chords- magnificently mournful  Grunge/Americana rocking Boy/girl vocals with a Mark Lanegan via a grunged up Giant Sand vibe.. The Boomsticks– a punky onslaught with a loose and sardonic vocal…Ramones, early Damned, but also some groovy hard rock textures…Aerosmith, MC5– anything that lends itself to a bit of rap rock crossover (definitely a hint of that in the louche vocal delivery) , struts fitfully with a bit of that Zep shaped sophistication, groovy rocknroll.

Rock N Roll Rescue Punk RocknRoll All Dayer… The Skinner Brothers– what with their groovy threads and sculpted rocknroll hair these boys have da look and da sounds…Dollsy rocknroll with a smidge of classic Brit indie rock, niceness. The London SS– is a name spoken in legends of the UK punk scene of the 1970s. Although the band never released any material (but there are rumours of tape, buried somewhere in the depths of Mick Jones’ old flat) they were arguably as bigger influence on the formation of the infant punk movement as the Sex Pistols. Former members of the London SS went on to form the Clash, The Damned, Generation XAustin Gold- blusey heavy rock , pretty much the same components as Whitesnake, blues wailin vox, hammond etc, skillfully reworks Kashmir here, a Booker T number there and the recent career of Jo Bonnamassi in the space of one song. Has grooooooove…. Inhaler– Punked-up indie rock, bit like the more abrasive side of Nirvana, via old school punk, ferociously cool. Tara Rez- former Duel frontwoman Tara really knows how to make an impact, bags of punk energy with low slung rocknroll chops provided by her very fine band. Thinking person’s punk for sure. X Ray Spex/Vice Squad/PenetrationThe Garage Flowers– Cocksure indie rock n roll…. stylistically it’s late 60’s Stones via a glammed up Libertines, loadsa swagger and tunes to boot, good stuff. Pink Cigar– Roustabout London rocknroll legends on early door so arrive early folks..glam punk rock via a garage lens… think a raw version of (early) Kings Of Leon hit up with Dolls/Stooges vitamins and a lickle spit of AC/DC …swaggersome and sexy.  Knox (The Vibrators)- Mr RockNRoll Rescue himself opens proceedings with his acoustic guitar and his ace collection of songs….so actually get in proper early kids, not to be missed. Harlots Of Beyond- Hey! How the Helsinki! Finnish punk alt post punking duo with a smorgasbord (sorry that’s wedish innit?) of releases and gigs behind them, and we’re chuffed to have them open the show today.

The Panic Brothers– Highly acclaimed singer songwriter Reg Meuross and Tin Pan Alley songsmith cum comedian and radio presenter Richard Morton are of course The Panic Brothers. 25 plus years on from the heyday of this high energy, close-harmony singing duo, Panic Brothers are back!  Reg and Rich have lost none of the musical and lyrical edge which established them as a formidable live act, first on the London pub circuit and then leading to five years of successful touring and TV work, with appearances at Edinburgh, Glastonbury, Sidmouth and most of the major British Festivals and also the comedy circuit. They gigged widely in the UK and supported numerous and diverse stars such as Chuck Berry, Steve Earle, Roger McGuinn, Steve Marriott, Charlie Louvin, Flaco Jimenez, John Martyn, Richard Thompson and The Housemartins. Reviews: “Spine-chilling harmonies”, Robin Denselow (The Guardian) “Excellent snappy songs,booming acoustic guitars and perfect harmonies are the Panic’s trademarks”, Andy White (Music Week) “Their combination of sharp,witty songs, tight harmonies and powerful acoustic guitars have gained them an enormous following”, John Conquest (Time Out) ” Witty songs and melodic punch from the Panics make their particular brand of musical satire easy for anyone to relate to”, Simon Jones (Folk Roots, September ’87) “Sweet Everly Brothers harmonies, so impeccably spot on they bring a smile to your face”, Kris Kirk (Melody Maker) “Excellent”, Mark Sinker (NME) With a series of dates under their belt in recent years including supports from the likes of Phil Jupitus AKA Porky Poet, Joe Brand and Jeremy Hardy, so stay calm and enjoy full on Panics….Ronnie Goulden – Long standing comedy circuit songsmith Ronnie Golden, born Tony De Meur, is a British singer, guitarist and comedian and founder of the band The Fabulous Poodles. As seen sharing many a stage with all the usual suspects (see above) Ronnie G was also a major player with The Comic Strip.

Antarctica-Slick but dynamic and inventive psych-tinged blues rock, snappy arrangements, songs build really well a-la early 70’s Bowie and the layered harmonies and sense of suspense recall Fleetwood Mac. great stuff.  The Outbursts-Proffering a sound equally informed by garage punk like The Standells, proto-punk, so we’re talking MC5 and The Stooges and yer classic old school 77 gear Stranglers, The Damned etc Who Killed Nancy Johnson?- Are a​ ​high-energy heavy ​pop-​punk band  influences include The Stooges, The Ruts, Buzzcocks, The Rezillos, from the punk realm and Alkaline Trio, Weezer, Sabbath, infectiously hooky  tunes, executed with conviction. Dronningen- Think Le Tigre but a bit harder/techier, but very much post punky post rave culture electropop de rock with shouty but melodic female vox.

The Bermondsey Joyriders– At long last Gary Lammin’s (Cock Sparrer/Little Roosters) punky garage rhythmn n blues trio come to The Dublin..“Anyone looking for a crash course in punk spirit should look no further” – Classic Rock “Loud, fast, cheekily confrontational and distinctly British. See ‘em at all costs” – Hugh Gulland, Vive Le Rock “A unique spin on punk blues” – Charles Shaar Murray “Extraordinary slide guitar … witty and original vocals” – Carol Clerk, Classic Rock. Blending a love of bottleneck Delta blues with a solid background in the London punk scene, but with their fingers on the pulse of contemporary society, The Bermondsey Joyriders are a band as accomplished as they are inventive. They have captured the imagination of crowds and critics alike with their blend of ’77 punk power, skillful playing, soulful slide blues, and razor-sharp social commentary, delivered with a distinctly British wit.

Blasting Box-Angular Anglo Parisians, think dEUS meets something shouty and there’s brass so I’ll say Rocket From The Crypt- lotsa intensity get a mean groove on and  the brass swings. A tasty live proposition. All Change- Blending hiphop with folk tinged soul and real gone funky rock flavas-a wonderfully  soulful vocal. Bill Withers meets Roachford type tunes with aspirational spittings.  think Living Colour via N.E.R.D…Volente- Quite an otherworldly voice she has bit Kate Bush in places and musically this is pretty unique, fusing classical music drum n bass, snatches of Dub Step and Ambient, closest comparison would be Massive Attack.

Bat Or –  3 piece malevolently moody French/English 3 girl happening bridging artful intelligent pop with dreamy filmic synthscapes. It’s really groovy. Relaxing listening with sassy edge.  Yes Man Jellyfish-Alt-Dance ensemble a soulful take on progressive House, via Garage, Breaks, Drum and Bass reminiscent of New Order and 808 state with hints of, Tangerine Dream, Orbital, and MJ Cole. 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 experimenting with the forms but pretty accessible and catchy all the same. Shotgun Six- Pscyhedelic rock with a nod to God Speed You Black Emporer, Explosions In The Sky etc, hypnotic and slowburning there’s a bit of a post rock angle too has a faint Joy Div closer lp vibe, fine work.

With twangy guitar  Chris Izaak/Duane Eddy guitars and some country tinges,  JD, former star of Irish soap Ros na Rún, is now also doing wonderful things to songs by the Ramones alongside his own excellent compositions. .Head Of Light Entertainment-NE England based cheeky poppers… nice skipping riddims and washes of colour care of interesting mixed instrumentation and a bright little indie folk pop vocal fulla pop chops…ah and here comes some Farfisa type organ….I’m sold. Coming on like Belle And Sebastian as if re-imagined by The Colorblind James Experience for a Lionel Bart musical..Lem And The White Fire– A fusion of soul indie and pop, with some of their tunes bringing Gabby Young & Other Animals to mind and some more indie pop oriented stuff – think The Gossip meets Adele. Overall though highly original and well done so hats off. The Lunar Effect-psych rock stonerisms to the fore and all fantastically well performed, proper hairy rocknroll, yes Lord.

Cope- Hardcore punk metal, played at a fair old clip and the vocals are pretty pissed-off and uncompromising, but there’s moments of melody shining through which hold the attention, compelling stuff. Torchbearer– Searing ‘ardcore metal, bludgeoning riffage, bags of conviction but also moments of melody and yer actual hooks, nod to Gallows also Mastodon, fine work. Thicket Of Anterlers Ferocious hardcore metal/Grindcore a definate Napalm Death influence here also Extreme Noise Terror, not an all out sonic assault though, interesting arrangements that suggest they might also dig The Cardiacs g vocal sort of Lydon via Frank Carter circa Gallows. Short, sharp to-the-point tunes. Fine work.
