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!

Let us take you back to March 2000: We had just entered the new Millenium awaiting flying cars and hover boards, Bill Clinton was President of the USA and Blink 182s All The Small Things was kept off the Number 1 spot by Geri Halliwell. It was also the same year we opened the doors to you ‘orrible lot at The Fighting Cocks and so finally, the day has come… Our 18th year at The Fighting Cocks… so what better way to celebrate than with one of our good ol’ fashioned bottle breaking tear up!
We’ve smashed ourselves to get this little shindig together and we cant wait to celebrate this milestone with each and every one of you.
So whats on the agenda we hear you ask. Well…
Taking the stage we’ve got the one and only Henri Herbert And The Fury. The former Jim Jones Revue pianist has been busting pianos all over the world in recent years and we’re utterly honored to have him and his crew don our grubby little stage. Lets boogie woogie!
In support we welcome back the rock n roll drum and guitar duo The Love Me Tenders. They seem to be playing relentlessly recently and we’re stoked they’ve taken time out of their busy schedule to party with us.
And if that’s not enough… we also have BBC Music Introducing darlings KIT TRIGG to kick you into shape with some cool as all hell blues rock.
Thirsty for more? Well, to keep you warm we’ll be throwing around some free shots from our sponsors Fireball UK Whisky!
Late bar till 1am
Bring ID to avoid disappointment.

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
***LAST ENTRY 11PM***
NOT FOR THE FAINT HEARTED.
YOU’VE BEEN WARNED.
