Rocky’s Cuffs-Blending a garage rock rawness of delivery with an indie sensibility in the crafting of the songs themselves, the oddly named Rocky’s Cuffs complement and confound in equal measure.Fans of alt-rock and more abrasive music will find their blend of melody and muscle intriguing; indie kids will appreciate that their heavier angle brings something new to a sound usually built around more obvious infectiousness and accessibility. Naked Yoga– In November 2023, Naked Yoga released their debut album, Triangle; 10 tracks of original (mostly) compositions spanning their cosmic combination of rock, jazz, funk, electronic and soundtrack-inspired fusion. Recorded during a rainy summer at the MAP Cafe Studio, the album captures Naked Yoga’s unique and dynamic sound. Blood Like Wine – Blood Like Wine play a blend of alt-rock and ‘90s grunge originals with a nod to the past and an eye on the future. Their music embodies the spirit of rebellion with an unapologetic edge that will get every crowd jumping. Formed in a post COVID landscape of introspection their originals take you from brooding passion to high energy alt-rock floor fillers.

05ive 06ix- Fab punk pop with plenty in the way of hooks, bit Senseless Things in places.Weekday Social – Female fronted indie pop trio, nicely melodic with a late ’80s jangly guitar sound, sorta reminds of Darling Buds and The Cranberries. Nice Sun Pinned Leaves-  Pull off the very clever trick of being incredibly eclectic (a drum and bass riddim here, an Ian Dury like refrain there, a Britpop motif hither, a heart wrenching ballad thither) whilst not really sounding like anyone else. Brilliant pop music basically.

Rogue Division
 + Joe King and The Jays
 + The Nothings + Witchitas
 + DJ Black Feather
Sheffield Hits The Smoke  with… Rogue Division – 2022 was the year Sheffield Hard Rock outfit Rogue Division first came onto the scene. Featuring some of Sheffield’s finest musicians – Ryley Donston (Lead Guitar), Ben Grayson (Drums), Theo Ferreyra (Bass), James Bickerton (Rhythm Guitar) and Will Thompson (Vocals) – they wowed audiences all around Sheffield with their High Attitude approach to Hard Rock and Punk. Since the band started they’ve played many popular Sheffield venues such as Network, Record Junkee and The Yorkshireman. With every show being unique and exciting, this is a performance you will not want to miss. Joe King and the Jays were formed in 2021 when front man Joe Ricketts and drummer Josh Dabell started as a two piece out of the ashes of a former band. The trio was completed with the addition of bassist Jack Lathwood in early 2022, with the band persistently gigging around Sheffield and Manchester. September 2022 saw the release of the band’s debut single “Small Talks” which gained over 10,000 plays in its first week of release as well as attention from magazines RGM and Clunk. In February 2023, the bands second single “Take Me Back” featured on BBC Introducing Sheffield, helping the band to be shortlisted for Tramlines festival out of over 1,500 acts. The band’s third single “Love’s Like a Pair of Jeans” was released in August 2023 and since then, the band have gigged relentlessly in Sheffield venues such as Network and Record Junkee. With energetic live performances and bouncing guitar riffs, the band continues to go from strength to strength. The Wichitas are an alternative garage rock band formed in early 2023 in the small town called Mexborough of South Yorkshire. The loud, noisy and distorted sounds inspired by the likes of The White Stripes and Royal Blood. A duo with immense power and energy playing venues all around Sheffield, Rotherham and Doncaster The Wichitas are something to experience at least once in your life time. Despite only being together a short time, Sheffield alt-rcokers The Nothings  – Sheffield alt-rockers The Nothings have quickly made a name for themselves in their hometown since forming last year. The band reached it’s final form in September 2023 after the addition of bassist Joe Beighton, who joined guiatrists Ethan Rai and Clayton Deane as well as drummer Charlie Jones. The boys have joined the alternative/emo revival seen recently, with their influences coming from the likes of Deftones, Nirvana and Type-O Negative. With huge announcements such as Rock N Roll Circus alongside acts like Milburn and The Ks, 2024 is looking like a huge year for the young 5-piece.    DJ Black Feather keeps the party going til 2am. NB Today’s matinee event is ticketed separately HERE… https://www.wegottickets.com/event/615581 Doors 2pm The Boston Brew + Red Letters The Boston Brew – 1960s rnb/garage covers as cranked up into a feverish punky schlock and roll party… in the style of The Cannibals. Which is about right as one of them once trod the boards with said Lords of Trash… Like they say, seriously good rockin’…Daddy. Proper. Red Letters – Two ex members of The Cannibals are also present and correct here. Two ex Marauders too ( Charlie Harper’s band before he formed The UK Subs) plus the vocalist from Mood Six (a band much championed in John Cooper Clarke’s autobiography). Performing tuneful power pop for your pleasure.

On 8th of March 2024 Subterranean Street Society will be releasing their new album titled ‘BLEEP‘. ‘BLEEP’ is born out of a post-covid urgency to perform live. Where previous albums of the band were constructed in a more elaborate process, this album was written and recorded in well under a year. Eager to crank up the volume the band set out to write songs they could record live and take out on the road  just as they are. Tonight Subterranean Street Society hit the Dublin Castle to curate their very own special show as part of a UK tour. Expect fuzzed-up bass guitar feedback, thin-can resonator dirt, hard-hitting harmony yelling, up-tempo garage drums and Louis’s signature raw vocal performance. And evening filled with questions on the subject of war, smartphones, freedom of speech and polarization.

Thee Mighty St Pancras –  Twangy guitars and lots of reverb takes you into what could be a spooky Joe Meek offcut, although this definitely be a punk rock band… some mid 60s brit beat vibes – The Birds, Yardbirds, Downliners Sect etc… plus that whole post Billy Childish Kent punk tradition and something darker and deadlier of a post punk type.  Garage blues punk. Yes. Great stuff. Slender Pins – twangodelic elastic bass, scraping, scratching and zinging post punk guitar, skittering scattershot drums, all pulsing into one beautiful danceable, delectable sound for vocalist and proper frontman star type Ash Burt to express himself most wonderfully atop. A marvellous band with fabulous songs who should be massive. Their performance tonite will be. TheBigBadSad – another shit hot young band out of Bristol, hard psych influenced alt rock, sounds a bit like Bad Dog or Viagra Boys, very good work indeed. Check em out. Purple Implosion –  Also check out these Horror Zombie garage punk psychodrama psychedelicists… it’s a marvellous way to kick off this incredible bill tonite, so make sure you’re in thru the door at 7.45 sharp for some Herman Munster meets The Seeds round The Cramps gaff good time acid fried party vibes.

Oh - Aces
 + Popscene (Blur Homage)
Oasis Vs Blur… What’s The Story Tracy Jacks? Think back to the Summer of 1995, a long hot one as I recall. Roll With It or Country House…which would hit the top spot and sell the most newspapers? That was perhaps THE last Great Pop Phenomenon (discuss). Well, we’re all a lot older and we’re all gonna play nicely now, but you can don that Adidas top and slip those Gazelles on all over again tonight as “Oasis” and “Blur” both take to the magical, mojo riddled Dublin Castle stage to both play blistering sets. Enjoy both performances and forget the feud. What a night it will be! Plus DJ Brett Pop (sic) no doubt playing Pulp and Elastica and Sleeper and maybe even Menswear and wot not to get you in the mood.  Oh – Aces – Gallagher Bruvs in their united prime, paid scintillating homage by these talented and dedicated fans of The most swaggering, rocking end of the Britpop boom. Were Oasis the best? You tell us…that whole period is a bit of a Blur…but I did smoke some Super Grass. (Just say Mmmmm…maybe. Definitely. ) Popscene – Talking of Blur…back in 1995 the real thing infamously played a sweet as a nut sweat box Dublin Castle ‘secret’ gig at the height of post Parklife Blurmania. I mean Blur, not Scouse soulsters The Real Thing, ya get me…anyway, what a night it was. And here’s Popscene to help you relive it. Maybe they’ll play that same set. And another thing…London Zoo is just up the road so you could also easily catch Gorillaz this evening too…

‘Teddy Boys’ at RNR Book Club
 + Max Décharné
 + Daniel Jeanrenaud The Camden Cat + DJ Martin Heaphy of No HIt Records
Rock N Roll Book Club goes back to the source this afternoon, so far as that name is concerned, because today is all about real Rock and Roll, and the very first British youth culture phenomenon that defined it, the Teddy Boys.  Enter author Max Décharné, in conversation with Tony Gleed from 2pm about his highly acclaimed new book, entitled “Teddy Boys: Post War Britain And The First Youth Revolution“… Book of the week in the Sunday Times recently, and recipient of a two page rave review by Jon Savage in the New Statesman.  You will know Max as a onetime member of the band Gallon Drunk, and as frontman with The Flaming Stars since 1994. An authority on the 1950s and 1960s counterculture, he is the author of Vulgar Tongues: An Alternative History of British Slang, as well as A Rocket in My Pocket and Hardboiled Hollywood. Its a great pleasure to welcome Max back to the Dublin Castle today, for our Book Club assignment, Scene of many a spectacularly rocking Flaming Stars gig spanning – gulp – 3 decades. There will be questions from the floor, signings, selfies, and yes you can buy books. Get a few…soon be Christmas… In addition to a suitably ’50s flavoured DJ set interspersed throughout the event we are pleased to announce a live performance by Daniel Jeanrenaud AKA The Camden Cat – what a marvellous thing, to have Daniel J back in the DC. His stripped down Eddie Cochran meets Sun Elvis guitar, vox and drums set was a highlight of a recent groovy gig with Pussycat and the Dirty Johnsons on our watch. Those references are weighty but Daniel’s oeuvre is all his own and super cool at that. A regular feature for Camdenites in a daze gone by, in a late night haunt long gone, but possibly now called Snickers in a parallel universe…this rockabilly Cat cum Kingsnake was the proponent of a delicious soundtrack to many a non existent kebab and disco biscuit and late beer meal back in the as they say day. Superb. Perfect Teddy Boys accompaniment. DJ Martin Heaphy of No Hit Records doesn’t have far to strut from the wonderful Sounds That Swing Records a couple of doors down from the DC. No doubt his vinyl selections will be absolutely on point for a rock in’ afternoon of joy steeped in Rock N Roll lore. Jump and Jive cats.

Great to have them back. ‘Mickey 9s are a raucous live band from Glasgow who play funky metallic dance music with sharp witted lyrics and a wild stage persona’… all true, the masked marauders of kicking punk funk they surely are, look out kids, they’re after a piece of Camden Town turf to take back to Scotland. They will most likely steal your hearts too. Impossible not to dance once they hit up the stage. “…a blend of meaty basslines, jaggy guitars, up-tempo rhythms and idiosyncratic vocals” The Scotsman “…fucking brilliant” This Englishman. Danny Fingers –  I’m getting Mink Deville NYC vibes, some school of Lou Reed travelogue talesof the Lower East Side etc in the wonderful ‘The Girls Are All The Same, for example, although Johnny is actually from L.A. He also embraces electro pop nu soul with a fizzy pop element. All good…indeed sounds right sassy. DJs We Got Killers til 2am go funk, punk, no junk, get some drinks sunk, don’t be a lunk.

Jemma Freeman & the Cosmic Something
 + Eve Indigo
 + Milkfiz + DJ Joei Sylvester
Jemma Freeman & the Cosmic Something – Beautifully honeyed yet barbed indie rock / dream pop with on point song craft and sonorous vocals from them wot’s name is on the tin. As they say ‘Outsider dream alt rock’ is the gist, and ‘cosmic songs about introversion, hidden lives, and empowering yourself in the face of adversity’… indeed, super. Eve Indigo – Eve first took to the stage as the ballsy  amped up singer/songwriter on a  neo-glam rock/good old fashioned rock and roll tip, but now Eve Indigo is a crack 3 piece on a mission to make Hair Metal hip…kinda …job done, coz this is truly sassy, funtime, crafted glam punk joy. Partay. Milkfiz – fascinating new band outta Bristol, always a hot bed of creativity, and along with Manchester, the true heartland of post punk. These superbly syncopated sons and daughters of the Severn take all that Pop Group, Glaxo Babies, Maximum Joy heritage and soup it up for some suitably psyched 2020s visions. Ace. Arrive early. You must catch this band.

DB Stewart is a blues rock artist from Seattle, U.S. Country Rock and Pop sensibilities sweeten the bluesology evident in the fine guitar playing, making for an accessible troubadour experience that could please fans of Tom Petty or Steve Earle as much as those of Bukka White. Talented guy.  Sophia Lucia –is an experimental musician, performer, and writer. She is based out of Chicago & Paris. She makes hypnotic and chaotic rock & roll / singer-songwriter music, with punk and theatrical energy. She writes and produces a one-woman show titled, ‘Freak Show Cabaret!’ which is a variety show including (but not limited to) theatre, poetry, dance, performance art, improvisation, and original music. Alternate Root Magazine described Sophia Lucia as, “a rare gem – one of a small band of unique, idiosyncratic artists who forge their own path because, for them, that is the only path which is viable.”

The Who at RNR Book Club
 + Author Richard Houghton
 + Q and A + Wardour Street perform as THE WHO
 + DJ Baba O'Really
This afternoon’s special matinee RocknRoll Book Club welcomes back Mr Spenwood Books himself, hardest working author/publisher in showbiz, Mr Richard Houghton…and today Shepherds Bush comes to Camden Town, coz it’s all about The Who… This Guitar Has Seconds To Live: A People’s History Of The Who, is an oral history of the band who were the first and original Mod guitar group, and who evolved into the kickingest of kick ass arena filling rock phenomena. They smashed Rickenbackers, hotel rooms and occasionally each other. Never before had a band caused such wanton destruction on stage. Never before had a band smashed their instruments into pieces, or used feedback as a weapon to manipulate their audiences. But there had never been a band like The Who before, and no other band has ever brought the same level of danger, excitement, chaos and sheer volume to live performance. From singer Roger Daltrey, guitarist Pete Townshend and bassist John Entwistle starting out as The Deetours in 1962, until the untimely death of their legendary drummer Keith Moon in 1978, this is the story of over 300 explosive who concerts told through more than 500 eyewitness accounts. It charts their rise from their West London roots to become one of Britain’s top chart acts (with 14 top ten hits) and a gig schedule that saw them play virtually everywhere in the UK before conquering North America and the world via mammoth concert tours and attention-grabbing appearances at the Monterey, Woodstock and Isle of Wight festivals. The Who’s albums Tommy, Who’s Next and Quadrophenia all rank in Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time. Their legacy is undiminished by time, and the sound of feedback runs through this book, as fans and admirers of the band recount seeing them in action through a series of fascinating and heartwarming anecdotes and photographs. More than 290 different Who gigs are recalled by fans, from their mod roots through to the 2000s… Tony Gleed talks to Richard Houghton about all things Who on stage, with a Q and A to follow and books to be bought and signed. Buy one, buy three. Soon be Christmas. We then complete this Whofest the best way possible…with a long set of ‘60s /‘70s classics performed by confirmed Who enthusiasts’ the excellent Wardour Street. From the igniting spark of The Who, straight through the ’60s mod explosion (Small Faces, The Kinks, Spencer Davis), and into the mod revival (Jam, Secret Affair, Purple Hearts, Chords, Lambrettas), plus a sprinkling of new wave and 2-tone. Wardour Street are the real deal Mod covers band…pure Fred Perry-adorned modernist joy!

Not to mention her pivotal role with post punk game changers The Raincoats… In conversation exclusively with Tony Bugbear at the Dublin Castle RnR Book Club tonite ahead of a Rebellion Festival Literary Stage assignation, also presented by Kick Down The Doors PR, we are very pleased to welcome Palmolive to our stage to discuss her forthcoming book, and explore a life at the Cutting edge of music, culture and seismic societal change. Palmolive will also be presenting a fascinating video as part of this evening’s entertainment, and we are anticipating that some of her former artistic associates will also participate in the event. Palm Olive’s former partner in The Raincoats Gina Birch, a legendary post punk era figure for sure, will also be with us this afternoon as guest DJ, spinning some suitably spiky and on point tuneage.

Two of Europe’s leading tributes are coming together to bring the U.K the tour that never happened! Rage against the machine & Beastie Boys …With an added little extra of a newly formed Cypress Hill thrown into the mix. This line up has never been seen before and promises to be a great night for ALternorock, Rap & Hip hop lovers all around. The Machine Rages On have established themselves as the top tribute to Rage Against The Machine over the last 8 years! After sold out shows in Europe this summer the band have set their sights on an even bigger tour for 2024! Aswell as it being the 25th Anniversary of The battle of Los Angeles it would have also been the 25th anniversary of this mega multi band tour that never came to fruition, sadly… Beast Decoys have also quickly established themselves as one of the UK’s leading tributes, as an ode to one of the greatest hip hop acts to grace the scene, these 3 Mc’s & one DJ not only bring the high energy you have come to expect from the Beastie Boys but also the unique look that they brought with them too. Cypress Hill are homaged by “Cyprish Hill”, whose act is based upon the Live at the Fillmore concert from 2000 featuring 2 mc’s, a live band and DJ. So a great night in store for sure.

Laid - a tribute to James
 + Special Guests
 + DJs
Laid-superb James tribute…On Saturday 19th May 2018 Mike Hadfield, lead singer of LAID, had a VIP ticket to the sound check prior to the James gig at King George’s Hall Blackburn. During the question and answer session Mike grabbed the microphone and asked the band their thoughts of him setting up a tribute band to honour their music. After deliberating as a band, Saul spoke for them saying “Go for it!” and Tim Booth gave his blessing. Mike set to work gathering the troops to create a band of fans for fans – Laid – a tribute to James.  Laid have received high praise everywhere they play. As well as rising to the occasion of a 1600 strong audience at Shiiine-On Weekender and performing on the bigger stages, they also love the more intimate setting of a smaller crowd within a 150-200 capacity venue. Committed to getting the same energy and performance that James produce onstage and getting that live sound just right, the band have marked their territory as the leading tribute to one of the best bands to come out of Manchester.  Playing all the hits including “Sit Down”, “Come Home”, “Laid”, “She’s a Star”, “Tomorrow”, “Getting Away With It”, and “Sometimes” they are one band not to be missed! Hope they find time to do “Hymn from A Village” mutters this old raincoat wearer… Well we could always play it…We Got Killers spin the big hitting party choons til 2am. Expect a fair bit bit of Manc made dance floor finery tonite for sure!

Rhythm 60 is an Ex Gratia Recordings Party celebrating Scarlett Carson and J Mitch Flaxo’s first sixty years in The Universe… and you’re all invited, for a small fee to cover the entertainment . And what entertainment!…Back in October 1964 two incredibly special, squalling humans arrived onto this Earth and things have never been the same… Here we are in October 2024 and those two singing scorpio siblings, bassist, drummer trouble causers in multiple bands including Hagar the Womb, Bug Central, Mekons, Pig Ignorance, Big Bottom, Riot Clone, mclusky and also the rhythm section of anarchistwood going by the names of J Mitch Flacko and Scarlett “Charlie” Carsen are now almost grown up and are about to reach the youthful age of sixty. Please save the date of Friday 18th October to come and celebrate with us all at the infamous Dublin Castle on Camden Parkway. This includes a birthday for Hally too! The bands dem… anarchistwood – taking inspiration from Detroit ’60s, ’70s proto punk (indeed have been known to play a Destroy All Monsters number) as much as the Pistols packin’ ’76 SEX scene and post Crass ’80s Anarcho satire… Frank Cutter and crew know how to enrich the audience with fabulous, head turning, transgressive punk rock, and play it with a supercool ease. Punkish pranksterism never got so sassy. Effortlessly brilliant, massively entertaining. Their uber neato version of ‘White Punks On Dope’ (‘Black Punks On Speed’! hollers bassist Mitch!) is a wonderful inclusion in recent sets too. Bug Central – Bug Central are a punk band from London, England formed in 1996 and still playing with the original line up of Noodles Romanov (guitar / vocals), Ben Blasphemy (bass) and Charlie Bug of Riot/Clone, Pig Ignorance at the drums… Fierce and rumbling proper PROPER punk. SLapPeR – “the most beautiful sound you’ve ever heard” might sound like a bold statement, but you know what… beauty is in the eye of the beholder and… behold! Beauty! With echoes of neo classical, punk industrial and pronk pop gothic, there’s a lot going on and it’s all head crunchingly, psychedelically enigmatic and exciting. With DJ action til 2am…
