Tim V’s SHAM 69 – on tour in December

Now in 2019 the band find themselves doing another European Tour. The band which was formed in 1975, with hits such as BORSTAL BREAKOUT and HEY LITTLE RICH BOY being performed in 76-77, the band went on to have others such as HURRY UP HARRY, ANGELS WITH DIRTY FACES and the anthem IF THE KIDS ARE UNITED.
They had many line up changes but the most notable was Jimmy Pursey’s departure following his sacking in 2006, in which he was immediately replaced by the now vocalist Tim V.
The band currently features along with Tim V, the bands longest serving drummer at 30 years behind the kit for SHAM 69.. Ian Whitewood. On Lead Guitar we have Al Campbell who joined the band in 2009, he has a pristine pedigree in Punk after serving 13 years with UK SUBS and playing with both Marky Ramone and Jayne County and the Electric Chairs. On the Bass guitar we have John Woodward who was a feature on Bass in the Mod band Long Tall Shorty as well as the known Oi band The Gonads.
So this is SHAM 69 now and though many have scoffed at their existence they have come to regret it having been overwhelmed by the power of the performance.

The Movement – on the road again!

Our favourite Mod Band THE MOVEMENT is back on the road! This power- trio from Copenhagen/ Denmark is influenced by The Jam, The Who and The Clash and they really kick off on stage. It’s pretty simple and very basic: They are a great live band and they got a unique power pointed directly at the audience. Don’t miss them at a town near you! In April the band recorded a new album which will be released on Concrete Jungle Rec in spring 2020.

The band were formed in honour of the Ramones back in 2004 and captures the magic which the Ramones had in their early days with their intense on stage energy levels whilst looking much better than Joey, Johnny, Dee Dee or Tommy ever did.
The girls have toured ever since all around the UK & Europe, including many of Englands finest festivals “Wickerman” Guilfest & Rebellion Punk Festival.
After years of fans asking for original Ramonas material the girls are ready to launch their heavily anticipated debut EP ‘YOU ASKED FOR IT’. The release includes their debut single ‘Speak Up’ that has received rave reviews from across the world.
The Ramonas’ debut album titled ‘First World Problems’ got released on September 10, 2017. ‘First World Problems’ blends raw, dirty punk riffs with melodic vocal/guitar lines alongside punk screams and a good helping of gang vocals.

A power pop explosion and strict rock and roll combo, thats this international operation based in London, called Los Pepes. Los Pepes formed in London late 2012. Cooked up by Ben Perrier and Seisuke Nakagawa. They were brought together by a mutual love for forgotten 45s from the 60s, 70s, 80s and beyond. Starting life as a fast “Testors-esq” high-energy punk rock operation, Los Pepes have quickly evolved into something else where melody is the priority and punk is the delivery. For seven years now Los Pepes have been putting out records and touring the UK and Europe as a relentless DIY operation.
Their new sinlge just got released on Wanda Records. And they are gonna be on tour again!
