Glampunkska 3

Date: 24 Aug 2008 - 18:30
End Date: 24 Aug 2008 - 23:45
Event details: ‘Glampunkska' is the brainchild of Cambridge musician, Mark Tingey and was born out of his desire to encapsulate the musical essence of the 1970's. Back then it all began with theatrical Glam Rock, followed by the musical revolution of Punk Rock and ending the decade with the sounds of Ska, which was a dominant force both in the charts and on a more underground level. All of these genres not only share one of the most influential and iconic musical decades of all time, but each one represents the dynamic and changing voice of the youth of its day. This ‘voice' may have grown older, the coiffure and spiky hair may be grey or gone altogether, but there is still a huge fan base going strong after 30 plus years and the possibility of its celebration by bringing it all together on one glorious night was too good an opportunity for Mark to miss.

Line Up (in order of appearance)

Harla Horror:
 Spanish Punk Rock


Classic punk from the 70's to the present plus a whole lot more besides. This East Anglia based punk rock tribute band are getting a reputation as one of the country's most entertaining and talented kick-ass spirited bunch of herberts. ANYWHERE!!!

Big 10:

Initially a ten piece playing the music of Madness, Bad Manners and The Specials etc. in small pubs and clubs, Big 10 soon gained notoriety and a huge following. They went on to playing larger clubs, private parties, scooter rallies and festivals in the UK and Europe.
The band has also made several appearances as a support act for legendary ska artists such as Bad Manners, The Beat and Toots and the Maytals.
Big 10 are renowned for their lively performances and stomping gigs. BIG BAND, BIG SOUND - BIG 10!!!

Glam 'R' Us:
 Despite political pressure to have the 70's banned, Glam'R'Us have thrived on the assumption that even in the 80's they looked ridiculous.
Glam rock faves delivered with style, crazy costumes, commitment and a lot of fun. There are a few glam rock tribute bands out there, a couple of good ones and one great one. YOU DESERVE THE BEST!!!
+ DJ Les
