New Cross Inn present An Alternative Gathering and Garry Bushell co-promotion for (Punk) Musicians Against Homelessness, part of a series of gigs backed by CRISIS.
£5 ADV / £7 OTD
Infa Riot 21.50 — 22.30
Punk/Oi band formed in 1980 by Barry D'Amery and Lee Wilson, after becoming friends with the Angelic Upstarts at the Lordship pub in Wood Green north London. Their first gig was at the Lordship supporting the Upstarts. They then went on to support them on a UK tour. A return to Rebellion beckons in August and a brand new album is imminent.
The Gonads 20.55 — 21.35
We were street-punk before the term was invented, helping to launch the 'real punk' movement that was oi – a howl of rage from the terraces, back streets and council estates of the UK that found an echo around the world. Oi! ain't about posing and preening. It's about who we are: the English working class, having a laugh and having a say. The GONADS hate snobbery, ignorance, apathy, bigotry and PC bores. We support unity across our scenes. As our friend Garry Johnson said, back in 1981: «United is the thing to be, think how strong we can be, united against society.»
Noel Martin's Evil B'stards 20.00 — 20.40
This is Menace with a difference! Noel steps out from behind the drumkit and sings while playing guitar, Rob plays the double bass with his son Jo on drums. Expect most of the classics with a good smattering of Menace songs that never usually get an airing. Definitely worth seeing.
Spizzotronic 19.30 — 19.45
A short solo set from the one man advertising board and Captain Kirk wannabee! Mercurial punk survivor Spizz made his debut at the Birmingham, England club Barbarella's during an all-day music festival held at the end of August 1977, performing an improvised set on a borrowed guitar.
The Phobics 18.45 — 19.15
Formed in Deptford in 1999 by a bunch of punk survivors and misfits with a love of raw rock n roll and bored with a smug and complacent music scene. Sometimes tight, sometimes not. Occasionally sober but always eventful, faster and louder. A kick up the arse with great tunes that’ll hook you deep. Sign us why doncha?
Bexatron 18.00 — 18.30
Think Pistols Stones Slade Duran Blondie. All in the melting pot. All played thunderously loud. Bexatron is five piece band based in London fronted by the idol-esque Rebecca Bex. We play hi octane pop punk with a glam coat!
Dennis (Just Dennis) 17.30 — 17.50
He first performed in 2000 and by 2001 he was a regular on the poetry and comedy circuit, writing his first book 'Wake up and smell the coffee'. He performs at many festivals and has become a regular at Glastonbury.
