Cockney Rejects: Rarely in the long history of British rock’n’roll has there been a story of such depth, magnitude and sheer turbulence as that of the Cockney Rejects. There has never been a better time to check out the band that inspired a generation with their timeless brand of terrace sing along classics and white hot live set!

Angelic Upstarts: Angelic Upstarts formed way back in 1977 in South Shields, North-East England. Working class punk band with strong anti-fascist views and beliefs. Influenced by bands such as The Clash and The Sex Pistols, The Angelic Upstarts are a meeting of working class ideology and musical aspiration.

Ruts DC:  The Ruts were a reggae-influenced British punk rock band, notable for the 1979 Top 10 hit “Babylon’s Burning”, and an earlier single “In a Rut”. In December 2008 John “Segs” Jennings and Dave Ruffy returned to Ariwa Studios as Ruts D.C. to record some new tracks with Neil “Mad Professor” Fraser. The project, entitled Rhythm Collision Vol. 2, was mixed in Brighton by Mike “Prince Fatty” Pelanconi and was finally released in 2013.

Dirt Box Disco: Born in the UK from the malfunction of a terrible musical chemical laboratory experiment! DIRT BOX DISCO are now free to roam from city to town, spreading the sonic filth to anyone that will listen, and people do listen! and they like what they hear, they like what they see! pure entertainment in every word!

Vice Squad: Vice Squad UK Punk Band featuring legendary Punk Vocalist and writer Beki Bondage.

The Restarts: The Restarts line up is Kieran, Robin and Bram. Originally The Restarts were spawned out of the misanthropic haze looming around London in the mid Nineties. 

Crashed Out: Having honed their stunning sound, this masterful quartet have nailed their in-yer-face yet melodic punk rock that will grab you by the throat, slap you on the cheek and give a cheeky grin. With their very infectiously energetic and powerful live show, these heavily tattooed North Eastern lads are the real deal.

Spunk Volcano: A spin-off from Dirt Box Disco, they peddle a faster and more frenetic take on the glam-punk genre.

Criminal Mind: Criminal Mind are a four piece punk band based in Bristol. Inspired by 1977, UK82, DC Hardcore and 90’s underground stake punk. They deliver an authentic Street Punk sound crossed with old school hardcore and gritty reggae edges
