The Fighting Cocks and Bangers Embrace invite you to the first gig of 2018 and its a cracker! FREE ENTRY FREE ENTRY FREE ENTRY with late bar till 1am!
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!
Buddha Blood formed at a New Year’s Eve party in 2012. Realising that they all shared a passion for psychedelic fuzz and dreamy melodies, they locked themselves away in a countryside cabin for nine months to develop a sound influenced by collective favourites such as Stone Roses, Brian Jonestown Massacre and Tame Impala. September 2013 saw them burst onto the Brighton scene supporting Night Beats, Cosmonauts and Holy Wave. Expect driving yet melodic riffs as well as whirling, spacey vocals.
The Get Rids
The Get Rids are a garage rock band from Brighton, formed a year ago through a shared desire to play live music and slowly ruin our hearing by playing too loud at band practice. With a shared love of bands such as Devo, Hot Snakes and Michael Jackson, they met when they were playing in various bands in the Brighton punk and hardcore scene. Once formed they spent a year rehearsing, telling everyone that they were honing their set, but in reality were too busy drinking. Having already had their first track ‘Smile’ played on BBC Introducing South and by Tom Robinson on BBC radio 6; they have a video for their title track ‘Smile’ made by a friend in the business and and Two EP’s out called ‘Move Juice’ and Mood Juice. The Album is Recorded and ready for release soon. Here’s a taste https://youtu.be/ZizRysJWMEA
The Insights are a London based 3 piece garage rock band with strong 60’s influences, great rhythms and banging tunes. Working on new album out soon. Not to be missed!

We PARTY til the bell tolls!!! NYE 2017 Fuckers!!!
Here at The Fighting Cocks we pride ourselves on throwing the best parties all year round but nothing says celebration like NYE!! The beer will flow like wine and the whiskey flows like beer.
We’ll have live carnage from…..
The Blue Carpet Band
They havent stopped for the whole of 2017, playing every nook and cranny, bar and toilet venue of the UK. So were pleased as punch to have them play their last show of the year with us!
A powerhouse five-piece garage/ dirty rock’n'roll band. Classic blues-rock proponents such as The Yardbirds and early Rolling Stones mixing it up with New York punk and late 60′s protopunk. Think big riffs, 12-bar boogie and unstoppable energy.
The band so nice we let them play twice (in 2 months!) After they played their last show we had several punters left with a hankering for this Brighton duo… dont let the name fool you, theres nothing skinny about these two noise makers… this is full fat psyched out fuzzed up garage punk.
These guys may aswell become the FC resident band. We just fucking love them. Gutter garage rockers, sleazy n greasy with crackin hooks that’ll stick in your tiny mind till next year… hehe!
A FREE Sailor Jerry and mixer for each and everyone of you who ventures into venue… believe us, youre gonna need it with this lot.
All of this festivity for only a £5, bought in advance www.wegottickets.com/event/424985

JAY VEE presents another evening of diabolical surf, garage and rock’n’roll!
Atom-age demon surfers straight outta the swamp. Lean, mean and never afraid to violate the stage / crowd boundary, be prepared for lethal guitar twang, gut-wrenching bass and skull-splitting drums.
Proper garage rock’n’roll from London sounding like the Sonics in a street fight with Lemmy. Top tunes served up with no muss, no fuss. ‘Nuff said.
Husband and wife duo formed from the ashes of the legendary FRANCEENS, coming all the way down from York. These guys make seriously savage rockabilly, and have rightly been earning plaudits around the country of late – not to be missed.
Relative newcomers to the London scene, expect pulse-heightening garage rock’n’roll in an early-Hives / RFTC vein. We’re proud to put these guys on – mark our words, you’ll dig ‘em!
As if that weren’t enough, there are our usual FREE SHOTS on entry, wild rock’n’roll on the stereo all night and a top selection of beers behind the bar. Get down and wig out!
