Formed in Keighley, West Yorkshire, Random Hand have spent the last decade tearing full throttle through the UK with their ferocious, in your face ska-punk-metal mashup. Stops along the way in the USA, Canada, Russia and mainland Europe have enhanced their relentless UK touring. "These guys take influence from the 3rd wave ska of bands like Less Than Jake and Sublime and mix it in with the more skate punk type stuff like early Offspring, NOFX and Lagwagon and some helpings of of thrash metal used in the same way Sum 41 did to make their personal brand, using it’s minor chord tendencies to make a more serious and aggressive form of ska than many of their influences. They aren’t breaking any boundaries, but they tick all the boxes for a f***king great ska band with raucous energy and some righteous trombone" - Alt Corner

Rubella Ballet, constructed around the enduring nucleus of Sid Truelove and Zillah Minx, formed at a gig in 1979 when Crass invited their audience to use their equipment. The newly formed group took to the road with Crass and the Poison Girls, quickly establishing a unique niche and standing out from the multitudes in black combat wear with their vibrant visual image. After reforming in the late 1990s, recent gigs have shown that their power continues undiminished, with an original, atmospheric black UV light show and performances that continues to defy stereotypes. Their songs that have politically and ethically more than stood the test of time, highlighting the groundbreaking nature of Rubella Ballet’s original stage show, music and ideas.

Chaos UK are a hardcore punk band formed in 1979 in Portishead, near Bristol. They are associated with legendary Bristol label Riot City Records and played their part in revolutionising the hardcore punk scene at the time with their raucous, energetic, oft-political and in-your-face take on punk. They continued dragging pre-crust punk kicking and screaming through the 80s and 90s to the present day with ranting commentary about the state of society which remains ever more poignant today as it was back then. Expect high-energy, noisy, thrashy pogo-punk songs, with crackling guitar submerged behind a super-quick rhythm section, all to a shouty growling vocal to get both excited and angry to all at the same time.
