The Courtesy Group Album Launch / The Drift / Lofe / Hemming Tong

COURTESY GROUP – Think Birthday Party meets Captain Beefheart and you won’t be far off. In town to launch their long awaited follow up to the acclaimed Tradesman’s Entrance album their second LP is entitled Second City Liquor and contains all the usual sonic bluster and acerbic wit you’ve come to expect.
“Here’s Hutchins, the howling faggot and pea-fuelled visionary, vindicated at last, and at his finest where precipitous and sluggardly guitars fabricate a kind of psychedelic drizzle, a dying sun glimpsed through an industrial smog.” Stewart Lee/ THE SUNDAY TIMES****
“Blue-collar Brummie Beefheart, mighty mangled tunes and riffage, great lyrics and attitude, a fine name: what more do you want from a group ?!” John Cooper Clarke.
THE DRIFT – Garage punk ensemble with a hint of Pixie-esque grit back on home turf to push their new CD of fiercely digested garage punk nuggets. Ex Deptford Beach Babes & Probing Cranks.

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. 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!

Sinful Maggie, Scandal, The Drunken Ramblings FREE ENTRY

Presented by The Fighting Cocks Bar & Live Music Venue and Bangers Embrace Presents HM Queen Elizabeth II official birthday celebrations with-

Sinful Maggie – Formed in 2015 and set out to show people that you could have a punk band with an accordion and not play Folk, Gypsy or Celtic Punk. Brothers Charlie and Russ Draper had been writing together for years, but without a band, the songs remained unheard. With the addition of Briony Ireland, a rose between two thorns, and Ollie Beaton, the bloke who holds two sticks, the band was ready to take their fast and furious punk rock on the road playing along side bands like The Mistakes and Self Abuse, but have since shared bills with Maid of Ace, The Real McKenzies, The Rumjacks, Buzzcocks and Slaves. The band makes no bones about wearing their influences on their sleeves, often being likened to early Rancid with a bit of The Clash and some early Dropkick Murphys to boot, but that doesn’t mean they don’t bring something fresh to the scene.

The band’s self-titled debut album is out now on all major digital platforms and CD. They will be up and down the country all year so come and catch them in Kingston when they stop at The Fighting Cocks.

Support from Kingston oi punk trailblazers Scandal-streetpunk and making their FC debut are melodic street punks The Drunken Ramblings from West London oi oi!

Lets show ol’ Lizzie how the punks party!

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!
