FILF@BarMetro, Bolton (Support: THE PAPASHANGOS)

Bar Metro , Bradshawgate, Bolton

https://www.facebook.com/events/124443721631531/

FILF will be parading our wares in the town variously known as Boelton, Bolton le Moors, Bothelton, Botelton, Boulton, Botheltun were Bodeltown, Botheltun-le-Moors, Bowelton (our favourite), Boltune, Bolton-super-Moras, Bolton-in-ye-Moors, Bolton-le-Moors, and finally settling on 'Bolton'. We'll be there on Saturday 14th April 2018 imparting banter and classic punk.

"There are 2 types of great gig. The one where the music is sublime and the band put on a great performance. Then there is the type where along with great tunes and performance, the FUN factor is raised to massive levels. Last night was one of the latter. The band were FILF and my god they were on form!! For those not in the know, it's essentially The Macc Lads now playing their favourite punk tunes from their youth, and doing it for a good cause and genuine love for the music they play! Add to that the fact they played not one, but TWO Macc Lads songs, and it made for a seriously great night packed with FILFy Fun!!!" Steve Tottle, at The Spinning Top, Stockport 17 Sepetember 2017

Joining FILF are Bolton's bastard sons of batshit THE PAPASHANGOS. This is just a friendly warning. Friends don't let friends watch THE PAPASHANGOS.

They're noisy and uncouth. They make a racket and leave a mess. They're supposedly a #punkrockmayhem band, but they fill venues with balloons and other stage props, force audience members to wear ponchos and dance. They even serenade individual people in the crowd! Innocent people, who've strayed into the show by mistake!

Their original songs are terrible, like this:

and this:

https://youtu.be/c_xh96w_mOw

And the few covers they perform are a travesty! I mean, Tom Jones would LITERALLY turn in his grave!

DO NOT go to their YouTube channel and subscribe. You'll only encourage them.

Also, I would recommend that you don't bother with them on Spotify:

Kringer & The Battle Katz Album Launch

Sanctuary Rock Bar, Cow Lane, Burnley

https://www.facebook.com/events/177379349514692/

Kringer and the Battle Katz

Founded in 2015 the soldiers of joy that are the Battle Katz united under the banner of "KRINGER AND THE BATTLE KATZ" to bring you meaty riffs, pounding beats, ear deafening screams, bowel shattering brass notes, and lung rupturing bass lines. For fans of Downset, Pantera, Eyehategod, Fu Manchu, Amen, Metallica, Rocket from the Crypt, Rage Against the Machine

Combining a mixture of Groove metal, Thrash Metal, Nu-Metal, Punk, Ska, Funk and whatever else they can, some call it Nu-Nu metal, some call it a load of old crap, but the Battle Katz call it PARTY METAL!

Since their inception in 2015 they have gone strength from strength. Playing all over the Northwest and venturing North to Scotland with plans to play all over the UK in 2017 and possibly Mainland Europe.

The Battle Katz released their self recorded, self produced, self released DIY epic of an E.P. at their own DIY EP release party - BATTLE-KON 1 THE THIRST CRUSADE.

As well as being a self reliant metal band Kringer and the Battle Katz wholly endorse the DIY ethic and arrange their own series of gigs under the banner of BATTLE-KON. A night that endorses bands with a little something different, something extraordinary or gut wrenching vomit inducing Metal and Punk.

The Battle Katz have no plans to stop but to wholly venture forward. Onwards and upwards. This 6 piece Party Metal outfit from Manchester UK are about to explode . . . .but hopefully not literally as that would be way too messy.

Why? Where do I start...

They're noisy and uncouth. They make a racket and leave a mess. They're supposedly a #punkrockmayhem band, but they fill venues with balloons and other stage props, force audience members to wear ponchos and dance. They even serenade individual people in the crowd! Innocent people, who've strayed into the show by mistake!

Their original songs are terrible, like this:

So, be aware. If they contact you looking for anything, a firm 'No' is your best option.

Vice Squad with The Bermondsey Joyriders + support

New Cross Inn, 323 New Cross Road, , London SE14 6AS

New Cross Inn are delighted to bring Vice Squad to south east London.

Doors 4pm £10 ADV / £12 OTD

Vice Squad Vice Squad are a female fronted UK Punk Rock band that delivers short sharp songs with incisive lyrics spat out over a thunderous rhythm and machine gun Rock ’n’ Roll guitars. Renowned for their high energy live shows the band deliver their set with passion and humour and have been touring and releasing successful albums since the1980s. Their latest album ‘Cardboard Country’ was released on their own Last Rockers label last year. The album is launched on the back of a very successful Pledge campaign raising funds for the Shelter homeless charity in line with the album title. Vice Squad is fronted by raucous voiced singer/guitarist Beki Bondage who was featured on the front cover of a number of influential music tabloids such as Melody Maker, NME, Sounds, Record Mirror and Smash Hits. The band is 100% DIY and has no record company or management backing. Since reforming Vice Squad in 1997 the band has released several albums with powerful punk songs that are very well received by fans and press. In keeping with the DIY ethic the albums were recorded in the front room of Beki’s South London flat. https://www.facebook.com/vicesquaduk http://vicesquad.co.uk/punkrock

With support from:

The Bermondsey Joyriders Claiming all the credentials of a bonafide ‘77 super group, The Bermondsey Joyriders is a band pooling the hard-won experience and history of three veteran punks. Founding members Gary Lammin (vocals / guitar) and Martin Stacey (bass) cut their teeth in the Joe Strummer-produced Little Roosters and Generation X precursors Chelsea respectively, whilst recent recruit Chris Musto (drums) is a sticksman of some credentials - having previously played with Johnny Thunders, Joe Strummer and Nico, to name but a few! https://www.facebook.com/thebermondseyjoyriders http://www.thebermondseyjoyriders.co.uk/

Healthy Junkies Female fronted New wave punk grunge band, DIY and hungry. Parisian Lead singer Nina Courson met British guitarist Phil Honey-Jones in 2009 in the now defunct venue Punk in Soho, both of them were in separate bands at the time. It wasn’t long before ideas were bouncing around and they began to write songs together, the shared influences of the likes of Iggy Pop, Nirvana, Blondie, Killing Joke,Sonic Youth, Bauhaus and Bowie playing a big part in the direction of the music. https://www.facebook.com/healthyjunkiesband http://www.healthyjunkies.co.uk/

Electrics Four piece New York Garage Punk band from West London. A Rock'n'Roll Liberation Army into drinkin' and schmoozing! https://www.facebook.com/pg/LECCYS http://two7evensclash.blogspot.co.uk/

Snide Female fronted punk rock straight out of Maidstone. Chugging beats, singalongs with illicit choruses ..... They sound like Stiff Little Fingers, U.K. Subs, Bad Religion, The Offspring and The Wildhearts. https://www.facebook.com/Snidepunk https://www.reverbnation.com/snidepunkuk

THE PAPASHANGOS Punk. Rock. Mayhem. We are THE PAPASHANGOS. We are your friends. You'll never be alone again. We're no good at all that band stuff, like staying in tune or in time or onstage or whatever. We play loud and leave a mess. Bootprints on every surface. Balloons. Ponchos. Tears.
