On Friday July 20th Des Was A Bowie Fan returns to The Victoria, Dalston for a 6 hour summer joyride — indiepop, new wave, post-punk and Northern Soul dancing till 2am, with the floor oiled beforehand by a 1-2-3 hit of Danish garage punk bands…

There will also be a set from the ace post-punk band Field Trip to the Moon.

Jævndøgn play shimmering DIY punk rooted in the glorious sounds of 80s Germany and US riot grrrl. They've just released their second EP, 'Døgndrift', via Copenhagen's Sockpop Records, and have recently chisseled the floors of Germany and Poland. This is their first London gig.

Enids have a wall of punk sound that sends a jangling weave back through riot grrrl to The Beach Boys, shit-kicking and melodically, joyously Pop.

Field Trip To The Moon veer from swirling and pulsing, noir-ish post-punk to glimmering, gothic doomcore and smokey beat ballads, rich in starry guitar lines, sweet violin suspense and handclapping beats. Their first LP 'Something Owed' was self-released in 2016.

Hook Jaw are a full-throttle blaze of sweet screaming riot Pop that shakes like the all the shakes stuck together, channeling the spirit of The Ramones and everything very short and very ace.

Then at 11pm Kerouac's bandanna falls on the lampshade with the touch of a Crystals chorus, setting a red disco hue for the ghosts of Northern Soul and rock'n'roll to join the most shimmering indiepop, new wave and post-punk till the milkman's bottles rattle round Dalston market.
