Soulside was the 1st independent band to tour the East Block in Europe while the Berlin Wall was still standing. “A formidable punk band of its time, Soul Side was an important band in the 1980s Washington D.C. punk scene because it was the missing link between the lyrically advanced, but musically straightforward emo-core of bands like Rites of Spring and the sonic complexities of Fugazi. Comprised of Alexis Fleisig on drums, Bobby Sullivan on vocals, Scott McCloud on guitar, and Johnny Temple on bass, the band mixed politically conscious lyrics with a brand of punk that featured tempo changes, Sonic Youth-inspired guitar dissonance, and some very hushed moments. When Soul Side broke up, Janney, Fleisig, McCloud, and Temple turned their side project, Girls Against Boys, into a full-time band and packed up and moved to New York. Bobby Sullivan went on to join a number of bands, including Seven League Boots, Rain Like the Sound of Trains, and the Sevens.” ~ Kembrew McLeod, Rovi
Jaded Eyes – The Leeds band features members who have been active in the punk scene for many years, in bands such as VOORHEES, THE HORROR, JOHN HOLMES, DEAD PETS, SEX MANIACS, GEOFFREY OI!COTT and many many more.
Following on from their amazing live shows and killer reviews for their debut “Gods And Monsters” album back in 2013, the band have continued to impress, sharing a collective love of the Dischord sounds of the likes of DAG NASTY and GOVERNMENT ISSUE and mixing them with the home grown UK guitar driven punk sounds of the likes of THE RUTS, THE DAMNED and HDQ
Dealing With Damage, spearheading the NWOBHC movement despite containing people who spearheaded the UKHC movement in the first place, bring the head-holding hardcore.

Runnin’ Blue promotions proudly present:
Janus Stark are the experimental punk rock band, formed and fronted by Gizz Butt, The Prodigy’s live guitarist and former member of English Dogs. Their debut album, ‘Great Adventure Cigar’, originally released on Earache Records in 1998, was an underground classic filled with Beatles-esque melodic sensibilities, metallic guitar riffs and thrash metal crunch, HUGE explosive spiky punk riffs, and epic singalong choruses, winning them fans such as Kerrang Magazine and Foo Fighters (who Gizz guested with live). In 2002 Janus Stark split up, BUT now they are back with a new album due and the incredible lead single, ‘Shuffle the pack’.
#Who Killed Nancy Johnson?
Reading-based Who Killed Nancy Johnson? are a high-energy original punk/post-punk band with a growing reputation as an incendiary live act. “It’s really worth getting to see these guys” – Punkarolla.
Formed in 2015, WKNJ started gigging in 2016 and have released a fistful of EPs, albums and singles. There is no better time to catch these guys live, they are on fire!
TThe late 90′s saw The Nosedivers playing their explosive, loud, fast, spiky, singalong, punk and roll rock show up and down the UK supporting the likes of Groop Dogdrill, A, Rachel Stamp, King Prawn, Goldblade and The Vibrators. They kicked a lot of ass, blew a lot of minds, eardrums and amps, and then unceremoniously imploded.
20 years later and the original line up is back for a handful of reunion shows and a highly anticipated EP release, with songs old and new. This is likely to be the only London show. Catch them while you can.
This absolute banger of a show will take place in the historic basement venue of legendary punk hang out, The Hope And Anchor, on Upper Street in Islington, London on Thursday October 24th 2019.
