Rat Catchers Christmas Ball: The Pistols + Straighten Out + Radio Clash + Jam Pact
"What a punk lineup! SEX PISTOLS, STRANGLERS, CLASH and THE JAM!! This will be a helluva night, pure nostalgic punk at it's very very best, with the best tribute bands from across the country. Get your tickets early!!!"
Info provided by the Event Organiser
'The finest Sex Pistols tribute in the land. The band both look and sound like the real thing, with the focus mainly on authenticity of the sound- our Johnny sounds more like Rotten than Lydon himself! Playing Pretty Vacant, God Save The Queen, Anarchy in the UK and all of the Sex Pistols hits that changed the face of British music, plus all of the covers and rarities the original Pistols ever recorded or played live'.
The Pistols tour dates
Straighten Out are the premier Stranglers tribute band with an extensive set list that spans two solid hours as they re-create the 'early years' sound of The Stranglers, complete with a keyboard rig that is the same model as the original used by Mr. Greenfield himself in the 1970's!
The growling bass sound and the quirky guitar riffs are all there to be heard as is the dual vocal 'attack' from the two frontmen a la Burnel-Cornwell as they rip through all the classics: 'Peaches', 'Hanging Around', 'No More Heroes', '5 Minutes', 'The Raven', 'Walk On By', 'Straighten Out', 'Down In The Sewer' and many more as they cover virtually the whole of the first three Stranglers' albums and beyond. Straighten Out will take you on a nostalgia trip that transports you back to those raw, powerful, exhilarating times when The Stranglers emerged through the quagmire of mediocrity to produce some of the finest tunes ever written. Straighten Out will put you back in that place!
Straighten Out tour dates
Top Clash tribute with a genuine love for the music of The Clash coupled with a desire to recreate the live sound as closely as possible.
You may not be able to go and see The Clash any more but you sure as hell can go and listen to Radio Clash as they nail the punk, the funk, the reggae and the pure rock'n'roll attack of 'the only band that matters'.
