The Dublin Castle
Friday 22nd September
Mika Bomb + Lord Numb + Abel Raise The Cain + Hercules II

Mika Bomb- Legendary Anglo- Japanese female punk rock experience with kick ass tood and pop appeal in equal measure, plus some sassy diversions into psych and glam amidst the ramalama. Damaged Goods Records artistes. Great fun and excellent to have them back in the UK and indeed The Dublin again. Cheap Tickets Here.Lord Numb- The named benumbed aristocrat upfront kerranging the beejaysus out of his guitar, with Mr Spiderleg giving some unholy four string bottom end action and electronic probings as Jez clatters and caresses the skins like Jaki Leibezeit on scrumpy. The dark end of Iggy meets Pistols punch meets Berlin era Bowie bohemia…brilliant. Abel Raise The Cain- Deeply atmospheric indie soundscapes, with celestial ensemble vocals, has the epicness of Arcade Fire or British Sea Power at their most bombastic, and some nice ambient moments a-la Sigor Ros too. Fetching work. Hercules II- Allstar lurch and neo garage alterno bliss in a guitar orchestra stylee. Slabs and layers of slabs upon slabs of noise- did I say slabs? Slabs also salvoes, swoons, swirls, something primal and loud and hypnotic ya get me? Fans of Black Sabbath, Sunn O, Wooden Shjips, may all find plenty to enjoy here.

The Dublin Castle Saturday 30th September
Mike Spenser And The Cannibals + Jonah Gold and his Silver Apples
+ DJs Mike Spenser and Tony Bugbear

Mike Spenser And The Cannibals- Happy (recent) Birthday- and yes it’s a significant one- to Mike Spenser, the undisputed King Of Trash, John Peel fave rave (early Cannibals’ classic 45 ‘Good Guys’ -Big Cock Records 1978– was in Peel’s infamous 7 inch singles box, the one he’d grab if his house was on fire- some of us of a certain vintage recall him punishing the fabulous flip ‘Nothing Takes The Place Of You’ endlessly on his classic Radio 1 night-time shows ) and hey Mike is also a rocknroll radio pioneer, working internationally in the medium, reviving the high seas pirate radio culture and launching the remarkable Trash Can Radio on DAB. Thus- Cannibalfest! Click Here For Cheap Tickets…

The Cannibals have been kicking up punk dirt for over 40 years in one form or another, and numerous Cannibalistic alumni will be alighting the stage tonight to celebrate with Mr S. Mike once fronted Chiswick Records biker pub/punkers The Count Bishops, roadied for the New York Dolls in their pomp and has been known to wear Lux Interior’s ring. He’s goddammn rocknroll royalty. Sad to report it will be the Cannibals Farewell gig after 41 years but the mantra is ‘Forever Trash!’ Cannibals from past to present come and join the fun. Two sets tonight, the 1978/9 Cannibals and the current Cannibals, plus a video montage of all things Trash and Cannibalistic. Jonah Gold and his Silver Apples– Purveyors of pure garage gold Jonah and his firm, fleshy fruits outta Germany will be providing peerless support tonight.
