There are hardly any bands performing today that genuinely deserve the adjective ‘legendary’. Buzzcocks are one of those very few. Their achievements are staggering: one of the original holy trinity of British punk (with the Sex Pistols and the Clash), innovators of the independent record scene and genuine punk rock superstars who have been cited as inspirational by bands as diverse as REM, Nirvana and Green Day. Eight studio albums, over twenty singles and EPs, a constellation of compilations, covers by other bands and songs on film soundtracks and advertisements have put Buzzcocks among the top echelons of British recording artists. A Mojo Inspiration award in 2006 is just one of the many accolades they have received for their work.
Buzzcocks tour dates
Fronted by Beki Bondage, the original queen of punk she is often cited as being the first punk pin-up featured on the front cover of a number of influential music tabloids such as Melody Maker, NME and Smash Hits.
2013 sees Vice Squad appearing at Strummercamp Festival, Rebellion Festival, Nice 'n Sleazy Festival, 3 chords Festival and many more UK club dates.
Vice Squad's relentless schedule finds the band spreading their punk rock message to the growing army of Vice Squaddies !
Vice Squad tour dates
Renowned for the lyrical masterpiece 'Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps Please' and the Rolf Harris cover 'Two Little Boys'; Splodge brings a unique mixture of 'pathetique' punk and bawdy beer swilling humour to the stage. Originally winners of the Melody Maker band competition in 1976, where the whole band appeared naked with cardboard boxes on their heads (full marks for originality); Splodgenessabounds went on to become a national name with appearances on Top of the Pops, complete with a nine-piece band and a dog called 'Two Pint's Pearson', and a national number one!
Splodgenessabounds tour dates
One of the original punksters from the summer of '77. Recently celebrated their 25th anniversary - and still angry after all these years!
999 tour dates
Goldblade unleashes the musical equivalent of a full-on beach assault incorporating heavy artillery, landing craft and an assortment of nuclear field weapons. With a fierce intelligence and a thirst for esoteric knowledge that matches a music that is visceral and almost spiritual in its primal spirit Goldblade are like no other band. John Robb, like some punk-ass James Brown, charges the band into the thick of battle. Prepare to be irradiated by their high-energy glam-soul-punk sound.
