An Alternative July Gathering: The Theme, The Rising, Who Killed Nancy Johnson?
"An AlternativeGathering are back for our July show with three excellent Mod Rock/Post Punk Revival bands.
Mod rock band hailing from South East London, The Theme formed in late 2011. For most of 2012 and 2013 the band gigged extensively all over London and beyond, including sell out gigs at the 100 Club and Clapham Grand, also supporting OCS and Weller guitarist Steve Craddock and with one gig in Canning town being described as 'the gig of the year'.
A 60's influenced 7 piece mod/psychedelic rock'n'roll band from Southampton - with now more contemporary influences as well. They signed to Detour Records in late 2013 and released their debut album in March 2014.
“The Rising are fronted by Tommy Overington. He?s a star, and he means it! Great tunes and a great band” Alan Mcgee – Creation Records
Who Killed Nancy Johnson?
"Spiked with amphetamines... a band that embraces punk's origins as well as influences from the last four decades" - thePUNKsite
Who Killed Nancy Johnson? are a Reading-based high-energy original punk/post-punk band with a growing reputation as an incendiary live act.
"Full of energy... a really cool post-punk feel" - New Music Saturday
A South London fusion of Brit-Pop and post-Punk Modrock. Mod has re-invented itself in every generation. The Theme loves the music and loves the clothes, but this is not sixties flower-power, it's hard-hitting rock music in the best traditions of Mod-Revival Powerepop. The stage is set and the Theme is Mod!
The Theme tour dates
Proper British indie rock. The Stone Roses, Oasis, The Verve and U2 could all be references. The Rising are a rocking Indie/Mod Hammond explosion with a real deal frontman.
