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!

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: A sound equally informed by garage punk like The Standells and 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?: High-energy heavy pop-punk to punk to post-punk band. Influences include The Stooges, The Ruts, Buzzcocks, The Rezillos and Alkaline Trio, Weezer, Sabbath. Infectiously hooky tunes, executed with conviction and known for their incendiary live show.
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. Another superb live act who are due to go places.

**Alan Clayson and the Argonauts** “were one of rock’s most glorious and enjoyable follies, and somewhere there is a parallel universe where they are bigger than The Beatles” (Rock ‘N’ Reel) and hold “a premier position on rock’s Lunatic Fringe” (Melody Maker).
In the late 1970s Clayson was being spoken of and written about in the same paragraphs as Wreckless Eric, John Otway, Tom Robinson and Elvis Costello, and featured in a BBC Radio One In Concert (which turned up on a 2001 bootleg CD).
Notoriety and cult glories aplenty but the Argonauts eventually succumbed to the treacherous seas of showbiz: no golden fleece. That was presumed to be that until a telephone call from out of the blue in summer 2005 from Damaged Goods records resulted in the release of “Sunset On A Legend”, a double-CD retrospective, and a reformation for a sensational farewell performance – which turned out to be the first of many. Here’s another not to be missed for fans of post-punking pre-punking outre outsider rock’n'roll.
Plus **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.
And **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.

An Alternative Gathering return to “The Woods” for more bands, booze and BBQ, What else are you gonna do on a Sunday evening?
Jellly – Passionate tunes, sinister undertones and a pop punk sensibility infused with a hint of the troubadour.
Yur Mum – East joined West to play a fusion between grunge, punk, hard rock, metal, blues and anything else that is loud.
Blackmail Box – Formed in 2013 with a desire to create grimy rock’n'roll and rockabilly surf flavoured garage punk.
The Venomers – An exciting rock and roll beat combo. New kids on the block playing garage punk and rock’n'roll surf.
Elsa – London based Singer songwriter guitarist on the rock edge. Heartfelt songs from a place of emotional honesty.

JAY VEE presents another night of crazed and depraved rock’n’roll shenanigans, descending now for the first time upon an unsuspecting Hackney.
Probably the loudest band in the world. Expect rock’n’roll distilled to its various essences – pounding rhythm, howling guitars and a whole host of fluids we won’t mention here. There will be rolling around, screaming and an insatiable urge to dance convulsively. Freaking terrifying, and an honour to have ‘em on the bill.
No nonsense Motorpunk from the wilds of York. These guys have been slaying audiences since 2011, and are the closest thing you losers will ever get to seeing Lemmy & co in their prime, with a unique spin on a classic sound. Proud to unleash them on London for the first time in a long while as they present their new long-player ‘Burston’ to the public..
Proper psychobilly for deviants, freaks, and oddballs of most descriptions. See you down the front for ‘8 Heads in a Duffel Bag’.
THE RATTLE SHAKERS
Brand new rock’n’roll / r’n’b hipshakers in the classic Dr Feelgood mould. Big riffs, skittering drums and general savagery abound.
As always, there’ll be a great selection of booze and cool tunes on the stereo all night. Get down, get loud and help us keep live music live!
