It’s a bank holiday rockabilly/garage/punk blowout! Four ace bands for the price of a central London pint, plus free shot on entry and top tunes on the jukebox all night.
THE PHANTOM COWBOYS
Bad juju-toting dark rockabilly from the unlikely wilds of Norwich. With an infectious sound that welds voodoo rhythm to speakeasy swing, these guys are the real deal – we consider it criminal that they’ve not yet graced the London stage and are putting things right forthwith.
JAY VEE AND THE CARDINAL SINS
Black-clad rock’n'roll motherf*ckers fronted by your humble promoter. Expect a garage-rock’n'roll-punkabilly attack with pounding drums, thundering bass and spiky Telecaster twang.
HOWLIN’ BONES ‘Untraditional rockabilly’ they proclaim themselves, and holy hell, are they right. Skittering from track to track at breakneck speed as though some wires got seriously crossed deep within a Sun Studios console, these fellas have got to be seen to be believed. THE V-1s Greased-up, in your face garage punk rock in the most old-school of old-school fashions, the V-1s walk the walk and stand head and shoulders above most ‘punk’ acts in terms of talking the talk. By turns slick, angular, confrontational and occasionally outright aggressive, we can’t get enough of this three piece and we reckon you’ll love ‘em too.

**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.

An Alternative Gathering return to the nest to bring you a night of dirty rock’n'roll
The Blue Carpet Band – Powerhouse five-piece dirty garage punk rock’n'rollers based in North London. Sounds like classic blues-rock proponents such as The Yardbirds and early Rolling Stones mixing it up with early New York punk, The Cramps and The Stooges, think big riffs, 12-bar boogie and unstoppable energy.
Rollin’ Machine – A raw 3 piece punk rock n roll band from Southend on sea. Dan fisher guitar/vocals, Evan Evans drums/vocals, Peter Kennedy on bass. Influences include Oasis, Stone Roses, Kasabian, The Small Faces, The Who, The Jam, punk and more!!! We are a wall of sound.
Blackmail Box – In Nottingham late 2013, inspired by a million noise slingers, Blackmail Box formed with a desire to create grimy rock’n'roll and rockabilly surf flavoured garage punk.
