Vice Squad are a female fronted UK Punk Rock band that delivers short sharp songs with incisive lyrics spat out over a thunderous rhythm and machine gun Rock ’n’ Roll guitars. Renowned for their high energy live shows the band deliver their set with passion and humour and have been touring and releasing successful albums since the1980s. Their latest album ‘Cardboard Country’ was released on their own Last Rockers label last year, the album is launched on the back of a very successful Pledge campaign raising funds for the Shelter homeless charity in line with the album title. Vice Squad is fronted by raucous voiced singer/guitarist Beki Bondage who was featured on the front cover of a number of influential music tabloids such as Melody Maker, NME, Sounds, Record Mirror and Smash Hits. The band is 100% DIY and has no record company or management backing. Since reforming Vice Squad in 1997 the band has released several albums with powerful punk songs that are very well received by fans and press. In keeping with the DIY ethic the albums were recorded in the front room of Beki’s South London flat.

The band is made up of Dave Sutcliffe on Vocals, Shaun 'Paddy' O'Neill on bass, Pat Crawford on guitar, Carl Gilliford on drums and Martin Roberts on keyboards. “It’s a great powerful Punk Rock take on the Killing Joke kind of thing. They've got the intensity, the feral power, the tribal drumming. Really great live, a fantastically intense show - and they are good players as well, a good tight band. The songs show a little bit of imagination" - John Robb, journalist and singer with Goldblade/The Membranes.
