999
An English punk rock band formed in London in December 1976. From the period of 1976 to 1985, the lineup of 999 consisted of Nick Cash (vocals, guitar), Guy Days (lead guitar), Jon Watson (bass) and Pablo LaBrittain (drums). (As a result of injuries sustained in a motor accident, LaBrittain was temporarily replaced by drummer Ed Case aka Paul Edwards in 1980.) Jon Watson left the band in 1985; being replaced by Danny Palmer, who remained with the band until 1991. Palmer was replaced by Arturo Bassick, who remains the bass player with 999 to this date.
The reason for their longevity is not airplay, massive publicity, hype or even a major recording deal but word of mouth and that "word of mouth" now extends to nearly every country on earth.
999's debut single, "I'm Alive", was "a headlong rush of anti 9 to 5 rebellion complete with a bruising power-pop punk guitar attack and rent-a-yob pitched-in vocals."
"A ferocious live band, the group harnessed every iota of their stage performance for the studio, turning in an album that zips past at the speed of light, in a blur of chant-worthy choruses and pogo-able riffs."

Witchdoktors
Deep in the darkest vaults of South London, The WitchDoktors have been honing their SuperPunkRock sound and shows, drawing on their 70s punk upbringing and adding a good ol' full measure of trashy rock'n'roll-a-billy, a dash of 60s Psyche-Out Garage, a bitter twist of cuntry and whizzing it all up with some godamming loud geetars our special brand of thunderous drums!

Heavy Drapes
Decadence has always been the cornerstone of rock ‘n’ roll. From brazen attitudes to loud riffs, rock ‘n’ roll has always been indulgent in life’s sinful pleasures.
The band has reunited after imploding at a spectacular event in Edinburgh’s Leith Walk in 2008, brimming with confidence their patented throwback rock flair is sonic treat, their songs are thunderous, dynamic three chord stormers!

The Blue Carpet Band
Powerhouse five-piece dirty garage punk rock'n'rollers based in North London. Sounds like classic blues-rock proponents such as The Yardbirds and early Rolling Stones mixing it up with early New York punk, The Cramps and The Stooges, think big riffs, 12-bar boogie and unstoppable energy, on a mission to bring back good real music to London then the world.

The Phobics
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?

No Lip
Right, lets get this straight. We are playing no frills, straight up honest as you like punk rock. We don’t bother with our own stuff it just clouds the issue, the issue being bringing these tunes back to an appreciative audience and not trying to promote our own half assed take on current affairs, we leave that to the “Facefuk” generation.
