Proudly presented by The Fighting Cocks Bar & Live Music Venue and Bangers Embrace Presents
From the ashes of one of the UK’s greatest live bands, Heck, comes Haggard Cat – a balls-out, batshit, rock ’n’ roll freight train.
Having already toured with the likes of Jamie Lenman – and soon FEED THE RHINO – as well as playing a headline slot at Camden Rocks and opening the main stage at ArcTanGent festival, HAGGARD CAT are now preparing for the highly-anticipated release of their new album ‘Challenger’ on April 20th through Earache Records.
You know them, you’ve seen them, you know what they do. They’re gonna kick your arse, chop off your head and bury you out in the desert.
This project began late August 2017, formerly as one man band and former Blue Carpet Band Drummer, starting to write songs taking inspiration from the 90s grunge scene, with a true punk attitude and free expression in the lyrics.
Unique raw sound with a strong impact using a slightly rough and innovative way to create our own music thats
loud, groovy and distorted with a touch of melody to the voice.
Doors at 8pm
The Fighting Cocks is an 18+ bar and venue
Please bring ID to avoid disappointment.

Dog of Man bring the sound of the filth stricken basement, fizzing electric accordion and angular guitar together in a glorious cacophony of bitcrushed, ambient and melodic acid-punk that will leave your jaw hanging beside your pasty white ankles. https://dogofman.bandcamp.com/
Ham Legion play a collision of beaming up beat power pop, with grinding grungy outbursts, dramatic changes of mood, tonnes of vocals, sudden passages of twistingly epic prog then moments of restrained delivery and somber reflection. https://ham-legion.bandcamp.com
Crystal Piss: Local band playing garage punk. Piss to the wall, fuck em all! https://crystalpiss.bandcamp.com/releases
Hemming Tong: Bromley contingent reject plays garage punk/punk rock/post punk/new wave on vinyl!

The Fighting Cocks presents Power Trio Outsider Showcase!
Londons Yur Mum have been smashing venues across the country with their high energy live shows since 2016 They’ve released several eps and 2018 saw the release of their debut album Road Rage: A jam packed raucous mash of grunge, punk and noise… Its been a while since they’ve played The Cocks, so we’re excited to have them back!
Dead Days are a UK based Alternative/Rock trio. Their electrifying approach to songwriting, combined with their unique live performance makes them an exciting new prospect for any music lover on the lookout for their new ‘favourite band’. After all, in music, just like in life, it’s important to discover new things and keep pushing forward and not keep living in the past because those days are dead.
Katalina Kicks was formed in 2010 in Shepherds Bush, West London. Fronted by Ian George, who belts out vocals while hammering his Jag; wild man and hard hitting drum maniac Jase Wilkinson provides a unique blend of Moon and Bonhamesque heavy-hitting stick-work, madness and power, alongside bass man Conor Cotterill, who brings finesse, swagger and a thunderous low-end punch to the proceedings.
The self-funded trio are the epitome of the DIY model. With a heyday pointing back to proper British 70s punk, fusing it with garage rock and grunge.

The Fighting Cocks finally presents unto you an evening of duos, couples and twosomes, if you will.
It seems less is more these days and we’re going to let these three bands prove it.
We excitedly welcome back SKiNNY MiLK from Brighton. These two fuzzy psychonauts have played for us on various occasions including last years NYE party. Since then they have played and blasted every watering hole and venue in the UK, including being the backing band for Castle Face Records’ Male Gaze on their UK and Euro tour last month. Be sure to have your ear plugs in deep and your mouth guards in. You’ve been warned.
Support comes from Kingstons finest, Model Citizens. Beating you down with desert rock vibes, uncompromising charm and good looks.
And doubly excited to introduce Southends partners in crime, Suspects. We don’t know how these two have managed to stay under the radar for so long… But we’re glad they finally surfaced. Get down early to witness their shear power of punk and grunge rock.
