John Cooper Clarke

John Cooper Clarke
Junction 2, The
In a vain attempt at bourgeois credibility, Manchester's sharp-dressed, sharp-delivering punk poet Lenny, changed his name to John Cooper Clarke and embarked on a polysyllabic excursion though Thrillsville.

Clad in the slum chic of the hipster, he issued the slang anthems of the zip age in the desperate esperanto of bop. Expect a mix of hilarious anecdotes of life in a Northern town interspersed with machine-gun fast delivery of some of his best poems.

'If you think poetry is dull and boring, or posh and erudite - you haven't seen JCC!'

Alkaline Trio

Alkaline Trio
Junction 1, The
Chicago punks Alkaline Trio marry catchy, hook-infested melodies and driving guitars with intelligent and unflinching lyrics. Since forming in 1996, they have perfected their brand of stomp-along anthems and built a loyal following. They recently released their sixth studio album Agony & Irony, the first single Help Me generating 70,000 plays in a single day on MySpace.

Citizen Fish

Citizen Fish
Man On The Moon
Since 1990 Citizen Fish (formed following the splits of Subhumans and Culture Shock at the end of the 80's) have been delivering their unique style of ska infused punk rock to eager audiences while touring across the UK and the rest of the world. Dick's frantic and emphatic vocal delivery combined with the catchy riffs and driving punk of their unforgettable live performances continue to earn them legions of new fans around the world, in all walks of life and all ages. 2007 saw Citizen Fish release a split CD with New York's punk legends Leftover Crack (on the famous Fat Wreck label, run by NOFX) and a massive US tour to go with it. These guys truly are the masters of mixing punk with ska, and they top that off with sharply observed politically charged lyrics that don't preach, but encourage you to question, and to think!!!

Plus The Tagnuts (last ever gig), Ed Ache (Acoustic punk genius front man of the near legendary I.C.H) and the Last Gang In Town DJs.

13 Riots plus support from Buffalo Club & more tbc.

Buffalo Club - "Robotic riff spurted out for a few bars before the falsetto Elvis impersonations....Jaunty staccato verse followed by a chorus full of release and distortion ....Dirty, fast punk rock guitars punctuated by the odd 'Urgh'" (Review taken from NME)

Last gang In Town Xmas Bash & 5 Year Anniversary Gig

With I.C.H. + Kill Youth Culture + Mustard City Rockers + Sam Russo + Last Gang In Town DJ's

I.C.H. - Arguably the finest punk band to come out of East Anglia, ICH have been with us from the start and are once again where they should be...headlining! The last 5 years have seen this band become a local phenomenon and they've just secured a slot at the prestigious Rebellion punk festival in 2009. Their influences are too numerous to mention (but Crass and Rancid are definitely in there) and mere words can't describe their live performances. ICH have been known to blow ageing punk bands off the stage and even incited stage diving at their unplugged gigs. With sharply observed lyrics and a barrage of guitars ICH's punk anthems will have you punching the air and shouting along ‘til the cider runs out.

Kill Youth Culture - Welcome return of this dirty punk 4 piece from Hull with bags of energy and the legendary Jim Sorrow from Freaks Union on vocals.

Mustard City Rockers - Excellent Norwich folk-punk band who are influenced by Flogging Molly, the Subhumans and everything in-between.

Sam Russo - Acoustic punk folk from this popular local songwriter.

Last Gang In Town DJ's - Psychobilly / Rockabilly / Punk / Ska Plus Last Gang Distro!
