New season, new venue, new acts, same old git at the front.
Yep – everyone’s favourite mutton-chopped r’n’r misanthrope Mick Waster has reached a venerable half century, and what better way to ring in this dubious accolade than with a night of punk, garage, psychobilly and rock’n’roll?
Well, since you asked…
KNOCKSVILLE are the headliners at this star-studded gala. Active for over a decade, these Eastbourne lads started out as straight-up bluesy rockabillies before kicking it up a notch or seven, perfecting over thousands of shows their own unique brand of punkabilly racket, winning fans and terrifying everybody else with a guitar-shredding skull-rattling bass-vaulting live show that defies explanation. No shit.
Stopping just short of headlining his own party, Mick’s own THE SPACEWASTERS specialise in minimal banter and maximum punk’n’roll. A bucketful of top tunes served indeed with neither muss nor fuss. Think Motorhead meets the Sonics and you’re not far off.
Dig their many live vids on youtube, and stalk them at www.facebook.com/spacewasters.
Did someone say SUPER SECRET MYSTERY BAND? Yeah, we did. Our lips are sealed, but.. you’ll like ‘em, trust us.
Opening proceedings are veteran ghouls THEE CREEPFREAKS. With quiffs that could have your eye out from the back row and a sound roughly akin to the Reverend Horton Heat mud-wrestling the Reverend Beat Man for the last beer after the nuclear strike hits, this is the real deal. Psycho-phobics need not apply.
