Dog of Man / Ham Legion / Crystal Piss

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.

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.

Crystal Piss: Local band playing garage punk. Piss to the wall, fuck em all!

Hemming Tong: Bromley contingent reject plays garage punk/punk rock/post punk/new wave on vinyl!

Free before 9pm, £3 after

Midwich Cuckoos, Harbour Sharks, You Win Again Gravity FREE ENTRY

Presented by The Fighting Cocks Bar & Live Music Venue and Bangers Embrace Presents

We welcome back Midwich Cuckoos for a headline show. After their insane night with Maid Of Ace, we couldn’t wait to get them back.

Explosive Rock’n rolling punk metal experiment put together by friends from around the world.

Theyll be joined by Kingstons Harbour Sharks – Harbour Sharks thematically diverse sound crosses the divide, ranging from heavy pop-punk to post-hardcore. The band are no strangers to the ups and downs of life and they reflect this through an honest, in your face delivery on stage.

And opening the evenings proceedings we have FC newbies You Win Again Gravity – YWAG are a post hardcore quintet from Windsor. They might be the only post hardcore quintet from Windsor, we don’t know for sure. Regardless, they’re playing Tech Fest this year, and recently did a music video with robots in it, because everyone loves robots. This is their first show with bass player Andy, and also their first show with guitarist Andy. They badly need a way to differentiate between the two Andys, and will gladly listen to suggestions.

Lets do this!


Doors at 8pm

Yur Mum, Dead Days, Katalina Kicks FREE ENTRY

The Fighting Cocks presents Power Trio Outsider Showcase!

Yur Mum
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.
