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!

The Blue Carpet Band

https://www.facebook.com/bluecarpetband/

Blue Carpet are a powerhouse five-piece garage/ dirty rock’n'roll band based in North London. Like 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.

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfyqox6zm8tI9WVPPDWcVFA

“And then we walked back over to the smaller stage, but still in the same hall to watch the most hip and happening band on the current scene. The Blue Carpet Band, it was half 3 in the afternoon, the band had arrived from London in an assortment of motors with lead singer Djamel suffering from some kind of antipodean fever (or a cold). And no word of a lie guvnor, they blew the bloody doors off. A mid afternoon set that got folk dancing, and yet again there were other musicians gathering around to have a listen and a look. Their garage punk roared off of the grid and didn’t stop until everyone had stopped and took notice. The festival was well underway, couldn’t wish for a better start. I was very happy indeed.”
-The Punkmonger March 2017

“Down and Dirty sweat encrusted songs”
-9/10 Louder Than War

“Such a great night last night in Hersham all the bands giving it 100% but if i had to make a call of band of the night it would be this lot The Blue Carpet Band… a hypnotic mix of sleazy Stooges/Dead Boys rawk n roll , rockabilly Elvis married to a a garage punk hooker, just brilliant, recently signed up by a record company this last week they fully deserve it, watching the punters last night. even the ones previously static could not help but swing their hips. Djamel Abina .. the frontman, fantastic charisma, he’s got the moves, but best of all no fear .. he will jump off the stage and land on your back .. but you wont mind .. ‘cos you’re in the groove bro … 10 /10, seriously go see em”
-Andy Luckett, Original UK Punk Family 07/05/17

“Blue Carpet Band: what can I say? BLOWN AWAY! Djamel Abina is the best frontman I have seen since Lydon as Johnny Rotten: mesmerising and a future star backed up by a phenomenal band.”

“Only saying what everyone else was saying. There are no limits to what your band can achieve. I have seen a lot of legendary bands in the past 48 years, some on their first or second gig but very few impressed me as much as the Blue Carpet Band did last night.”
-Marco Gloder, Flicknife Records 21/10/17

Faz Waltz

https://www.facebook.com/FAZ-WALTZ-36996846377/

Someone said that rock n’roll is dead. That someone has not paid close attention to what is going on lately in the underground, especially in Italy.

After four albums and hundreds of shows all around Europe,
Faz Waltz have already set the bar so high that is impossible not to put them among the best european bands of the last decade.

They breath and swear Glam Rock, the kind that used to be very much appreciated in the seventies in the worst pubs all around England.
T.Rex, Slade, David Bowie and Gary Glitter were the soundtrack for fight and romance.
Looks like some bands have re-discovered that sound, lately, and there’s some kind of revival of the genre going on, what is different with Faz Waltz is that their love affair with glam and proto punk started a long time ago and the testimony is their first Ep that came out in 2008.

But it doesn’t stop there.
Faz La Rocca’s song writing is also influenced by seventies rock n’roll legends (like Bon Scott era’s AC/DC), The Beatles and Cheap Trick.

Their riffs and melodies are solid and they’ll hook you up right from the start with their catchy songs but you’ll also be blown away by their live set where they’ll show you the real nature of this wild rock n’roll animal that is Faz Waltz.

Faz La Rocca: Vocals, Guitar, Piano
Diego Angelini: Bass
Marco Galimberti: Drums

Moron’s Morons

https://www.facebook.com/moronsmoronspunk/

Moron’s Morons is a quartet of Eastern European nimrods making punk music as it’s supposed to sound – raw, snotty and unpolished.
Having taken influence from the early punk scene and various bands of the ’90s garage punk revival, the band delivers a ferocious type of rock’n'roll that could have only been made east of the Iron Curtain.
Make no mistakes Moron’s Morons are NOT pleasant for the faint-hearted. They’re ugly and weird and their music is frantic. They’ll provide you with the same kind of kicks and thrills that are unleashed by both exploitation films and porno mags.

The Vagabonds 77

https://www.facebook.com/thevagabonds77/

Formed in the summer of 2011, Vagabonds 77 is a 4 piece punk rock band based in Athens (Greece). Consisted by fellow individuals who feel the need to create music inspired from bad and good times, sober hard working days and drunk hard to remember nights, trying to stay alive and express through music in a dirty and impersonal city. Tuneful guitar riffs blended with sharp and sing-along vocals (mainly in English) consist a sound for people who seek redemption through punk rock like we do!

The band has released 2 full length albums, “Time Is Right” (2011) and “Our Sound Our Life…” (2015) (both completely independently) and in September of 2017 will release a 6 track LP.

The past 5 years the band has done many shows all over Greece achieving to build a very strong following, also made a very successful U.K. tour including an appearance in “Punks Against Cancer #2 Festival” in Derby.

Voodoo Healers

https://www.facebook.com/V.HealersSKG/

Voodoo Healers is a Punk Rock n Roll /High Energy Rock ‘n’ Roll band from Thessaloniki (at least that’s the way that they describe their music). They begun in 2000 but it wasn’t until 2003 that they have started existing as a real band. With influences from bands like The Stooges, MC5, The Ramones, The Clash etc., they are probably the only Greek band that has a similar musical attitude to those referred.

They have released three albums “Living In A Dogville” (2006) “Dawn Of A Day” (2011) and “First You Dream After You Die” (2014) they have also participated in a tribute collection for the mighty Sky “Sunlight” Saxon covering his song “Out Of The Question”.

Voodoo Healers can also be considered as a travelling band with two major tours every year, across Greece and across the rest of the Europe! They have supported some great bands of the Rock ‘n’ Roll scene and they still remain “alive ‘n’ kickin’” ready to hit the road again and present their music to the world!

Hear Me Howl – gig theatre

Lights Down Productions present – HEAR ME HOWL, a one woman, rowdy as hell piece of gig-theatre like no other.

Jess is turning 30 and she’s just discovered punk. Some might say punk is dead, others would say she should really stick to the day job, but the resounding concern is: shouldn’t she be concentrating on settling down by now?
The play explores the characters journey via her discovery of punk music (& punk philosophy) and her story is told from behind and with the help of a drum kit and defiant, with drumsticks in hands, Jess lurches into an unknown future, one where she throws convention to the wind, and questions how much autonomy those with a womb really do have, here in the western world.

It promises to be a very punk, DIY performance, half gig/half spoken word, full rage! Through learning about punk Jess finds a way to express her anger at what society expects from her and she rages against the path her life is on.

We are at Landor Space, Clapham, South London 7th, 8th and 9th March at 7:30pm and 9th March at 2:30pm.

Tickets £10 full price, £8 concessions
