Sinful Maggie, Scandal, The Drunken Ramblings FREE ENTRY

Presented by The Fighting Cocks Bar & Live Music Venue and Bangers Embrace Presents HM Queen Elizabeth II official birthday celebrations with-

Sinful Maggie – Formed in 2015 and set out to show people that you could have a punk band with an accordion and not play Folk, Gypsy or Celtic Punk. Brothers Charlie and Russ Draper had been writing together for years, but without a band, the songs remained unheard. With the addition of Briony Ireland, a rose between two thorns, and Ollie Beaton, the bloke who holds two sticks, the band was ready to take their fast and furious punk rock on the road playing along side bands like The Mistakes and Self Abuse, but have since shared bills with Maid of Ace, The Real McKenzies, The Rumjacks, Buzzcocks and Slaves. The band makes no bones about wearing their influences on their sleeves, often being likened to early Rancid with a bit of The Clash and some early Dropkick Murphys to boot, but that doesn’t mean they don’t bring something fresh to the scene.

The band’s self-titled debut album is out now on all major digital platforms and CD. They will be up and down the country all year so come and catch them in Kingston when they stop at The Fighting Cocks.

Support from Kingston oi punk trailblazers Scandal-streetpunk and making their FC debut are melodic street punks The Drunken Ramblings from West London oi oi!

Lets show ol’ Lizzie how the punks party!

Chaos Theory/Match& fuse present: The Display Team, Magnus Loom, Ms Mercy

Genre-fluid promoters of the weird and wacky Chaos Theory join forces with promoters of avant-garde jazz, prog and all manner of genre-colliding music Match&Fuse, to present a special lineup of audio oddities.

———————
The Display Team

Two years after Chaos Theory had the sheer giggly joy of working with this supergroup on their sold out album launch show.

Containing members of Nøught, Gong and Knifeworld, this prog-punk orchestra creates a heavy assault of surprisingly upbeat, melodic nonsense, resulting in something like a cross between The Specials and Mr Bungle.

“A beast with 24 limbs, and 6 brains fused into a sympathetic matrix of heady harmonies, ballistic brass, romping-stomping riffs and more “wonk” than a bad hedge.” – Sputnikmusic

———————
Magnus Loom

A heady mix of almost indefinable sounds, utilising heavy electronics, light-fingered instrumentation and falsetto vocals to result in a medley of experimental pop and punk. Of sorts.

“A cornucopia of brightly burning pitches and rhythms.” – Folk and Honey

———————
Ms Mercy (launch gig)

A new noise project of total chaos, rock, metal, noise, prog, punk and more, featuring members of WorldService Project. A brilliant FNM/SOAD/Bunglesque experience.

Start: May 11, 2018 7:30 pm

Sunday Folk-Punk: Out of System Transfer (US) / QFolk / Chuck SJ

After touring extensively in the states, Out of System transfer is on their first European tour in April/May, with Qfolk joining for the UK leg

Carrying the banner of righteous weirdness, here comes Out of System Transfer, the city’s much-needed gonzo anti-folk punk rock radical leftist hootenanny. Their funny and fierce tunes blend the rage of Reagan-era punks like Dead Kennedys and Mojo Nixon with the rootsy feel and harmonies of acts like the Carter Family and Pete Seeger. With unparalleled energy, uncompromising radical politics, and an insatiable thirst for fun, these anarchofolk weirdos share one primary main objective: to rock your entire ass off.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ew6aw2DBemQ

Qfolk is possibly the loudest one human folk punk act. For fans of FEELINGS, radical politics, breaking the binary and a complete lack of subtlety. Passionate folk punk with more emotions than you could ever ask for! Aesthetic: Britney Spears meets Tom Waits.

https://qfolk.bandcamp.com

Chuck SJ is a Queer Folk Punk DIY Musician hailing from Brighton, UK. Although their roots lie in folk punk, Chuck’s guitar playing extends far beyond the contemporary and expected style of an acoustic guitarist.

Ebola-la’s
Much like the fatal ebola virus; Ebola-la’s brutal & contagious performance is renowned in both the underground punk and free-party scene.
