Smiling Ivy is an explosive and outspoken band from Sheffield performing an energetic fusion of ska, reggae, punk, and hip-hop.
Since forming in 2007, the five-piece have effortlessly clashed activism and hedonism on records – offering fans an astute and socially-aware observation of the times.
Jammin’ funk ska beats like man machines on the brink of disaster, but never tipping the edge. Smiling Ivy is an untamed animal, enjoying the ride
Just Say Nay
The biggest thing out of Kent since Tom Johnston. Horny sixteen-legged skanking machine and logistical nightmare with more members than you can shake a stick at. Cooking up a tasty up-beat ska-punk stew, seasoned with hefty brass hooks, hectic basslines, blistering guitar solos and sweet sweet vox. We’ll melt your fucking face off and open our spitvalves down your neck. Fuck Yeah.
Boogedy Smak are a 4 piece folk punk band mostly hailing from Kingston Upon Thames, London. Currently in the midst of recording new album called “Pay us to leave”… couldn’t be further from the truth.
Named after beer, fueled by beer.
Doors at 8pm

Many rock radio stations made it their album of the week. Festival appearances in both the UK and Europe followed in 2017 and a release of the bands first live album.
Some would say that these boys have already been there and done it having toured the world playing some of the biggest festivals and arenas with Eddie and the Hotrods, but Headline Maniac are new, bold and brash, if you like your rock music with a injection of punk attitude then check them out.

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.
LOFE – Wholegrain and far from seeded and rising fast in the south yeast. Avant beats, elastic band bass and a lavish dollop of Quobble & speak. Ex Brain Of Morbius & One True Dog well and truly off the leash
