A young band from Luton, formed in 2010. Rough yet catchy vocals, knuckle dragging guitar riffs, driving bass and drums as loud as howitzers; HAZARD deliver a gut punching set. Audiences have likened us to bands such as The Clash, Stiff Little Fingers, Nirvana, Manic Street Preachers and your favorite bands. https://www.facebook.com/hazardbanduk http://www.hazardofficial.com
Who Killed Nancy Johnson?
A Reading punk band, sometimes leaning into post-punk, sometimes a bit hardcore, sometimes a bit post-hardcore. Occasionally bits of goth creep in. The lyrics are sometimes political and sometimes philosophical – then it gets fast and vicious. A punk band. https://www.facebook.com/WhoKilledNancyJohnson https://www.wknancyj.com
5 piece dirty punk rap rock and roll from London/Kent. Influences include The Ramones, Motorhead, Chuck Berry, Buck Cherry, SASH! Marijuana, Class A’s and Class bitches! https://www.facebook.com/DogRotten https://dogrotten.bandcamp.com
Three Piece Rebel Station are a high energy, Punk Rock n Roll band, electrifying stages across the country, playing original songs at a frenetic pace. Dual lead vocals and mosh pit inducing, 4/4 tempos, ensure the band leave punters wanting more wherever they play. https://www.facebook.com/rebelstation.uk http://www.rebelstation.uk
It started in 2014 when Dave, Rocky and Calle were playing together in the latest incarnation of seminal British punk rock band The Fits (now dormant). When the group broke up, Carl, Rocky and Dave continued to write songs and record demos with no other goal than just to have fun and see what happened. Dave’s mate Alex Love heard some tracks and offered to help with lyrics and vocals, and Rocket 66 was born! Rocket66 is now busy with rehearsing and recording their debut album together with legendary record producer Dave Allen (The Cure, The Mission, The Members and many many others) to be released in the early summer of 2019. https://www.facebook.com/rckt66 https://www.rocket66.co.uk
Plus one more band to add.

We are hosting a night of international antifascist solidarity. The night will start with a talk by comrades from the Libertatia squat in Greece who’s building was burned down by fascists. They’ll give an overview of the rise of the far-right in Europe and efforts anarchists are doing to combat this.
Then the party begins.
We’ve got a hectic and frankly quite random lineup of bands for your musical enjoyment.
’24 years on the road and stronger than ever, London’s legendary Inner Terrestrials are a stomping mix of dub, punk, ska, folk and general anarchic danceability.’
‘Sitting uneasily between straight-up nihilism and fresh-faced naivety, Killdren pen politically charged slapstick anthems.
They form the ideal soundtrack to the worst generation in history.’
’3 piece girl punk band’ and winner of ‘minimalist band bio’ award 2018.
The Chain of Panic
‘Two parts Lithuanian, one part South African H/C THRASH PUNK.’
More acts TBC shortly.
Tickets will be £5 on the door (donations if unwaged/carer) and all money raised will be split between Libertatia and imprisoned Russian anti-fascists.
DIY space sells cheap booze and vegan snacks. It is a members’ club. Open to members and their guests only. Membership costs £2 and takes 48 hours to take effect. Join and pay at diyspaceforlondon.org
On 19 January 2019 anti-fascists and anarchists from across the UK will hold a demonstration in solidarity with our Russian comrades who are being arrested, framed and tortured in a brutal wave of repression which has put eleven Russian anti-fascists behind bars, facing obviously fabricated charges which could see them jailed for five to twenty years each. Two of the detained are currently on hunger strike against their inhumane treatment.

The repression began in autumn 2017 when six anti-fascists were arrested in Penza and had weapons and explosives planted on them. The Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) tortured the anti-fascists in the pre-trial detention facility by electrocuting them, beating them and hanging them upside down. While torturing them, security chiefs forced the activists to memorise the testimony the FSB wanted them to give: that they were part of a fictional terrorist group called ‘The Network’.
Two more anti-fascists were arrested in St. Petersburg at the end of January 2018 and were also beaten, electrocuted and forced to incriminate themselves by saying they were members of ‘The Network’. A third person was accused in St. Petersburg and two more from Penza have also been arrested for supposed involvement in this make-believe organisation. The FSB claims that the detainees planned to arrange explosions during the presidential elections and the World Cup to “further destabilise the political situation in the country”.
After knowledge of the fabricated court cases and horrific torture became widespread, solidarity actions started to take place, but this led to more repression. Some Russian activists who took part were detained, electrocuted and had criminal proceedings started against them – just for expressing solidarity.
This repression of anti-fascists comes at a time when the Russian state are working with gangs of far-right thugs to repress the whole of civil society. One poignant example of this happened ten years ago, two Russian anti-fascists, journalist Anastasia Baburova and lawyer Stanislav Markelov, were murdered by fascists in broad daylight on 19 January. Every year, Russian anarchists and anti-fascists gather to remember them.
On Saturday 19 January 2019 we are calling for everybody opposed to racism, xenophobia, fascism and the upsurge of far-right populism sweeping the world to join us on the streets to express our solidarity with Russian anti-fascists. The demonstration will start at the Cable Street mural near Shadwell station, east London and will feature speakers and a rally.
