As anyone who's seen these guys can testify, they are not to be missed.

Post Punk Podge & The Technohippies is a figment of punk and the post's collective imagination in the form of a singer/rapper/musician from Limerick, Ireland. 

An accomplished violinist, Podge’s goal is to turn the brown envelope from a symbol of corruption, deception and greed into one of self-expression, defiance and laughter. Accompanied by his sidekicks Dr. Asparagus Montague and DJ Jurassic Park 2, they are stirring things up in their native Ireland with their own sound - a blend of punk, electronic, krautrock, techno, irish traditional music, hip hop and classical. 

October 2017 saw Podge collaborate on the Stark Raving EP with NaIve Ted, as well as release the debut Post Punk Podge and The Technohippies EP Kick Against The Pricks, a month later. 2018 has seen even further collaborations with Jimmy Penguin on his Savages EP, as well as their most recent single ‘Home is Where the Heart Bleeds’, which raised money for the Novas homeless charity in Limerick. 

These highly acclaimed releases have helped them build a firm following and become one of Irelands most exciting bands. This is also due in no small part due to their live shows, a full-on high-energy assault on the senses. Armed with his violin, an array of effects pedal’s and a microphone Podge stalks the stage with all the menace of Johnny Rotten, accompanied by Dr Asparagus Montague on backing vocals and guitar and DJ Jurassic Park 2 on laptop and controller. 

Having left a trail of money, degrees and chaotic noise wherever they have played this summer, including Body & Soul, Electric Picnic and Knockanstockan festivals, Post Punk Podge & The Technohippies enjoy subverting genres and fusing comedic elements with a serious social conscience and message of defiance against injustices in the world. Lyrically Podge tackles issues such as depression and anxiety, as well as the current state of affairs in Ireland and the wider world, all intertwined with his trademark wit. 

They are too fat for pigeonholes and revel in their unique freedom of expression through the medium of post punk and everything in between. 

Rather than being a mere flash in the pan act, the band are most definitely in it for the long haul, and with their new EP Post Millenium Tension focused very much on the dancefloor and paving a more electronic and eclectic path for the trio, world domination is only around the corner. 

Up the punks, the postmen and everyone in between!

Wonk Unit have 6 albums spanning over a decade. I thought it would be a fun idea to play all the album over the space of a week in chronological order.

Monday 25th - Flying the Japanese Flag with The Murderburgers and The Kimberly Steaks

Tues 26th - Trolleys Thank You with Blind man Death stare, Aerial Salad and Incisions

Wed 27th - Muffy with TBC

Thursday - 28th Nervous Racehorse with The Cut Ups

Friday 29th - Mr Splashy With Pizzatramp and Grand Collapse

Sat 30th Terror With Consumed

We are inviting all of our fav bands to come and support each night. The line ups are already looking amazing. I want this week to be as much about the other bands as Wonk.

To coincide with all this we are releasing a new album!!!
WONK UNIT - ODDS,SODS AND UNCOMFORTABLE SILENCES (or something like that). Basically a live album with added rarities and other goodies. There's some seriously good stuff out there that has yet to see the light of day. Be nice to share it with you. Limited to 500 copies -300 black available in store and 200 colour available only at gigs (or if you write to me nicely).

"Conjures the fuzzed-out, hazy heft of everyone from Down at their most vengeful, Come My Fanatics-era Wizard, hints of very early Melvins and Kyuss circa Wretch." - The Thin Air
Their latest release 'Carmina Satanae' on Black Bow Records is proof these young freelance fiends are something special.

GNOB
Eastern, Arabic, psych and stoner fuzz from outerspace. If you've been lucky enough to catch one of their live performances before you'll know why these dudes have a reputation as one of the best live psych bands around. Their debut long-player 'Electric Dream Demon' on Drone Rock Records has been blowing minds.

Join us for a night of wild rockabilly in Camden Town, featuring 3 of the UKs most lively rockin' acts.

THE DELTAS
https://www.facebook.com/The-deltas-250517841792977/
influential beyond measure to the British 80's rockin' scene, The Deltas released the essential single 'Heart Attack' and the also-essential album 'Boogie Disease' in 1981, kick-starting a wave of neo-rockabilly bands, some of which would mutate into the early stages of psychobilly.
At it ever since, their live show never fails to disappoint!

HENRY & THE BLEEDERS
https://www.facebook.com/henryandthebleeders/
Bedford. 2004. 4 young men form a band with the dream of playing raw rockabilly to audiences worldwide. Having achieved that, their recent release on Western Star Records- 'Looking Backwards' sees even more of a return to traditional rockabilly in the spirit of '56 and the bands live set is tighter than ever.

SNAKERATTLERS
https://www.facebook.com/snakerattlers/
a band you must see. Formed in 2016 from the remnants of legendary York garage band The Franceens, Snakerattlers play 2-piece-husband-and-wife-guitar-and-drum death-trash-rockabilly with an energy and conviction the like of which has not been seen for a long time. Unmissable.

SNUFF FEST 2019
https://www.facebook.com/events/581131918993721/

The first five bands for this edition are:

Rectal Smegma (Dutch GoreGrind) -
These really need no introduction as they have been causing chaos and carnage for years. If youve seen them before you know what to expect and if not then expect a drunken party.

Fleshless (CZ Old School Death Metal) -
Old school death metal legends from the Czech republic. Fleshless are devoted to bringing the old school brutality and will lay waste to The Black Heart

Basement Torture Killings -
Thats us and you know who we are

Seprevation (Bristol Old school death/thrash) -
Seprevation are most likely one of the best bands in the UK and they will be showing snuff why they are rightly deserving of that accolade.

Defecal of Gerbe (Fr Gore/Party Grind) -
Back from a hiatus with a new album Defecal of Gerbe will show everyone a shitastic party. Last seen at the legendary Blastonbury Festival in 2011, this is one band you will not want to miss.

SHARKTEETH GRINDER
Sharkteeth Grinder are completely and utterly unhinged. This is aural carnage from the get go. 
This isn’t just a racket for the sake of it though, there’s structure and energy here.
It’s mesmerising to watch as the band quite literally throw themselves into their art.

COLLATERAL

DHP Family Proudly Presents:

COLLATERAL

Collateral are thrilled to release their debut EP ‘4 Shots!’ on Friday 23rd November via Roulette Records. The E.P. features the band’ new single ‘Midnight Queen’ plus three other tracks.

Ever since Collateral burst on to the music scene earlier this year, they have attracted attention from venues, festivals, press, and of course, rock music lovers everywhere. Collateral fit neatly into the current NWOCR with their ‘Rock Anthems’ reminiscent of early Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Little Angels, Thunder, Skid Row and Tyketto.

This year they played Hard Rock Hell’s private VIP party and the reaction was off the hook. 

What sets Collateral apart from the rest of the new bands is their combination of electric and acoustic guitar set against a big drum sound and throbbing bass guitar. They are loud, rockin’ and melodic. You can’t take your eyes off them. 

The 4 Shots! E.P. was recorded and mixed by Sean Kenny at Ten 21 Studios and mastered by Grammy nominee Robin Shmittz of 24-96 mastering in Germany.

Ripped jeans, cowboy boots, long hair and plenty of eye-liner, Collateral are a new generation stadium-driven rock’n’roll. When they first started out, they were known as the Angelo Tristan Band, with frontman Angelo and bass player Jack forming the nucleus of the band. Since then, almost 5 years ago, they have worked tirelessly to grow their music, fanbase and their profile.

In true rock and roll style, it’s been a long ride, but their sheer grit and determination have seen them overcome obstacles and go from strength to strength. With the recent addition of new members Todd Winger (guitar) and Ben Atkinson (drums) and with the forthcoming release of their debut single 'Midnight Queen' and ‘4 Shots!’ E.P., the boys have stepped up their game and are now attracting the attention they deserve.

▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬

ALKERDEEL (Belgium)
[Consouling Sounds (a.o. Amenra, Wiegedood, Gnaw Their Tongues, Zatokrev, Minsk ...)]

IMG_9082.JPG

Alkerdeel spits out droney black doom metal with blown out practice space production, grinding guitars, blasting distorted drums, filthy super sick vocals, with bursts of sludge and stretches of loping minimal crunch, sort of mathy, all very very heavy, doomy and even psychedelic. Essential for fans of Darkthrone, Burning Witch, Winter, Blut aus Nord, Beherit and Eyehategod … as well as other practitioners of grim buzz and noise.
https://alkerdeel.bandcamp.com

TURIA (Netherlands)
[Haeresis Noviomagi (a.o. Lubber Das, Iskandr, Solar Temple ...)]

Turia was started in the winter of 2014/2015. The band aims to evoke gripping black metal, stripped to its bare necessities. Utilizing a minimal setup of drums and guitar they bring to life a mirage of sound while anguished screams drag the listener into a vastness of desolation. Turia recently released their second album entitled “Dede Kondre”. An enveloping fury of manic primitive drumming, swirling riffs and haunting howls of torment; “Dede Kondre” strikes a balance between a triumphant paganism and melancholic seclusion. For fans of Fleurety, Burzum, Forgotten Woods, krautrock

& special guests

This show was moved to The Black Heart from The Underworld Camden due to works being done in the venue. Original tickets remain valid, however the age restriction is now 18+. Anyone under the age will be issued a refund.

••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

IMPERIAL AGE - Anthem of Valour:

Founded in 2012 by singers/keyboardists Alexander "Aor" Osipov and Jane "Corn" Odintsova, today Imperial Age are the best known disciples of symphonic metal not only from their Russian motherland, but from the whole of Eastern Europe. Delivering a mixture of heavy metal, male and female opera and rock vocals, orchestral and choral sound with a strength unparalleled even by the mastodonts of the genre, the band gained international recognition after Christofer Johnsson, the godfather of symphonic metal and leader of Therion, noticed the Russian talents, signed them to his own label Adulruna and took on an immense European tour in 2016.

In 2016 it was announced that the band had started working on a new album and in 2017 it was revealed to be a metal opera under the name The Legacy of Atlantis. Due to the fact that an opera requires multiple singers, Aor and Jane have put aside the keyboards, becoming full-time vocalists. The album was recorded with Therion musicians: Nalle Pahlsson (bass, guitar, acoustic guitar), Thomas Vikstrom (vocals) and Christian Vidal (solo guitar) and with Sergey from Arkona on additional guitar, who also did the mixing and mastering of the record. Taras Yasenkov conducted the Moscow Conservatory Chamber Choir to record the biggest choral tracks in the band's history so far.

In July 2017 it was announced that Imperial Age would again join Therion in their new European tour. However, this time the tour would be of an extraordinary length even for Therion - 57 concerts in 25 countries - and Imperial Age would be the midact on all the shows. In December 2017, the new line-up was announced: Aor (Vocals), Jane Odintsova (vocals), Anna Kiara (vocals), Belf (bass), Vredes (guitar), Max Talion (drums).

The band toured all of Europe in February, March and April 2018, playing a total of 59 concerts over the span of 3 months - a huge tour for any metal band of any size. The only two European countries not visited were Norway and Austria. The tour was a tremendous success, both among the critics and the fans, and brought Imperial Age to a new level of international recognition.

Serpentyne (UK)

Serpentyne was created in London in 2010 by founder members Sand and Powell, inspired by a combination of early music, folk, Celtic, world and rock.

After the release of the album “Stella Splendens” in 2010, inspired by medieval music, the second album “Myths and Muses” was released in 2014, keeping the medieval theme but with a mix of rock and world elements. A third album “The Serpent’s Kiss” was released in 2016, featuring mythic & medieval themes as before, but heading towards a heavier rock and metal sound. This change of musical direction won the band their place as finalists in the Metal To The Masses, London contest, 2018.

Serpentyne has been playing extensively around the UK and the rest of Europe during the last 8 years.
The band has recently supported Tarja and Stratovarious on their major tour “A Nordic Symphony 18”, with 22 dates last October throughout Germany, France, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Austria, Italy, Hungary, Bulgaria, Czech Republic and Poland.

Fronted by classically trained soprano singer Maggiebeth Sand, and backed by Vaughan Grandin on bagpipes, Lee Willmer on guitar, Nigel Middleton on bass, and John Haithwaite on drums. Serpentyne combine a unique mix of symphonic and folk metal styles, with themed songs about historical figures and legends, such as Boudicca, The Valkyries, Viking Blood, Helen Of Troy, Jeanne d’ Arc, and The Dark Queen, amongst many others.

Their inspiration come from medieval music, symphonic metal, Tarja, Nightwish, Within Temptation, and from Folk Metal, Eluveitie, Corvus Corax, Saltatio Mortis and from classical and cinematic music.

What the media have said about Serpentyne’s album “The Serpent’s Kiss” (2016:)
“Lavishly orchestrated cinematic majesty.” (Progression, USA.)

“Through this fusion of medieval sounds with biting electric guitars and pounding drums Serpentyne develops further. The serpent has arisen!:
Claudia Zinn-Zinnenburg, Orkus magazine, Germany, January 2017.

Orpheum (UK)

Orpheum; named after the old theatrical vaudevillian circuit, were formed in 2010, based in London UK. Fronted by the mesmerising Erin Johnson, melodic guitar of Finlay Thomson and the thunderous drums of Andy Thomson, they have combined gothic, progressive and symphonic metal to create their dramatic music.
