Riskee and the Ridicule
“Pioneers of the Grime Punk subculture Riskee & The Ridicule released their critically acclaimed new album ‘Body Bag Your Scene’ in June 2019. Described as “a bombshell of challenging themes” (Kerrang!) and “a focused assault that hits you in the heart like a hammer” (Mass Movement Magazine) – the band will continue to tour the UK, Europe, internationally and festivals throughout 2020.
“A sound that belongs entirely to them, Riskee & The Ridicule step beyond this on their new album… it’s emblematic of the feral potency at work on the full record.” – Clash Magazine
“The band make the jump to serious contenders for the modern day punk crown.” – Vive Le Rock
“We first encountered Bob Vylan — yeah, pronounced “Villain,” and a piss take on the name of a geezer folk singer of some “importance” (or so we heard) — when the duo stormed the 2018 AFROPUNK London Battle of the Bands. It wasn’t simply the fact that Bobby and Bobb13 combined two of AFROPUNK’s sonic mainstays — hardcore punk and rap — and made that music fit together as well as anyone in recent memory this side of JPEGMAFIA. It was that their firece and focused point of view on songs like the anti-gentrification polemic, “We Don’t Care (It Ain’t Safe),” showed a passionate desire to throw bombs through all the right windows. So, of course Bob Vylan won.
Now Bob Vylan has returned with an eight-song EP, Dread, which fulfills all the promise of their early tracks and live performances. Heavy-ass riffs, punk rap, grime tracks, thrashing hardcore, and un-clearable samples, mixed with the kind of political focus, mindless violence and Rasta asides that make for perfect revolutionary punk manifestoes.
“What does it all mean? It means nothing,” a voice intones at the beginning of “Grime Music Made Me Do It,” and it feels more like resistance than nihilism. Listen to Dread, it’s one of the best punk albums of the year thus far.” – AFROPUNK
The Blue Carpet Band
(Bomber Music – Winners of the ‘Best New Band’ award at the Vive Le Rock awards 2019)
“Blue Carpet is a 5 piece Garage/Dirty Rock’n’Roll band based in & around London, On a mission to bring back good real music to the boring mainstream.
Blue Carpet Band come on like Little Richard fronting The Stooges. It’s The Cramps playing with Knives. It’s frenzied, electrifying rock’n’roll, it’s primordial punk. This is the type of savage rock’n’roll you need in your life.”
“Hectic Blues Punk with a live show so chaotic it will leave you with horrific injuries. For fans of being happy, achieving your dreams and not dying.
Mother Vulture are the best band to have ever existed, according to themselves. With a live show as hectic and energetic as the stampede that killed Mufasa, they aim to leave you with permanent hearing loss with their pedal heavy riffiness.”
“Blues duo with a difference… the difference being that they are not confined by the 2 piece shackles. Moriaty have collaborated with Rappers, Singers, Bass Players (including members of Muse & IDLES) and string sections.
But the raw energy that comes from the two of them has attracted many great festival slots, high profile shows and celebrity fans and with the dramatic rationality of Conan Doyle in the back of their minds… combining it all with an aptitude for showmanship is kinda the point,
“If I was in a band, id want to be in Moriaty”
– James Santer / BBC Music Introducing
“A handful of default bands always spring to mind when a drun ‘n’ guitar duo looms into view, but Moriaty aren’t here to pander to such stereotypes… the sharp suited twosome are clearly having fun, devoid of agenda & pure of purpose… Bravo!”
– 247 Magazine – South West
Crooked Little Sons
“You need to listen to their entire back catalogue. You need to go and see them live. If they’re not playing near you, you need to find a venue, hire it and book them. You need to tell everyone about this band.” – Shout Louder
“A brash slice of garage punk. Its fast, furious, and to the point” – Punktastic
“Anyone in the mood for a shot in the arm of thrashy punk that sounds like a hybrid of The Bronx, Motörhead, and The Hives? Well, good — because that’s what we have for you today!
‘‘It’s furious, filthy fun, a cathartic, drunken wrestling session in a mud pit, catchy and cocky and everything that’s great about rock n’ roll. We have little doubt that Lemmy would have loved it.” – MetalSucks.net
“O’DEUS (*OH-DAY-US) FUSING BLUES ROCK ‘N’ ROLL WITH THE TRUE SPIRIT OF EARLY 90S GRUNGE AND 70S ROCK. THE O’DEUS SOUND HITS YOU LIKE A MACK TRUCK, THEN VOCALLY SOOTHES YOUR PAIN AND DELIVERS YOU RAW, STRAIGHT TO THE DANCE FLOOR. DRIVING FOUR TO THE FLOOR BEATS BACK UP THE LAYERS OF PSYCHEDELIC INSPIRED BASS GROOVE. GUITAR RIFFS THAT DRIVE AND CURVE, SMELTING BLUES, GRUNGE AND GOTHIC INSPIRATIONS. O’DEUS FEELS FAMILIAR BUT RAW AND FRESH, READY TO CUT AWAY THE FRILLS AND BRING ON THE THRILLS. WITH AMY’S VOICE WE REACH OUT TO OUR AUDIENCE AND DELIVER OUR DEEP CATHARSIS, WHILE ALWAYS REMEMBERING, MUSIC HEALS. SO BE HEALED BY O’DEUS AND ENJOY YOURSELF, CAUSE THAT’S WHAT ROCK ‘N’ ROLL IS FOR.”
“Winchester UK were one of our more wild-card choices, as they are the only artist on this bill that we haven’t seen live yet, but we’ve heard incredibly good things from the guys at The Cobblestones, so we had to get them on just to check them out! Insanely well-produced, riffy post-hardcore with some wild soundscapes!” – On The House
“Twisted and vicious” Post-Punk band from Bristol, BEEFYWINK derive their sound from a politically charged smörgåsbord of genres. As well as the unmistakable snarl of both classic and modern Punk, influences include Boom-Bap, DnB and Dub. Polarising and witty, BEEFYWINK’s lyrics carry a fusion of flippant remarks and philosophical guidance through our current political and social climate.
Co-fronted by Daizy Daze, AZ and K-RUSH, the band present a Gonzo-esque commentary of real life in the form of ecstatic rage and passion. Echoing, charged guitars compete with furious drums from LUME to complete a cacophony of high octane madness. This unique and constantly fluctuating sound plays on all the weird and wonderful quirks crossing genres can provide.
For the past three years, BEEFYWINK have acted as an ideal support act to bands such as NOVA TWINS, Sœur, and The Jacques, whilst regularly playing packed out shows at venues throughout the South West.
“Beefywink brought an instant explosion of sound and energy from the get go that charged the packed room with an electricity usually reserved for seasoned punk bands” – The Bristol Gig Guide, 2020
**NEWLY ADDED & chosen by our team of guest reviewers out of 100+ submissions**
“Arizona Law are a four piece punk rock band from Plymouth, UK and play fast paced, intense and ballsy punk rock. Drawing influence and inspiration from the likes of Rise Against, NOFX, Alkaline Trio and The Flatliners.
The world is going to shit so lets party!”
“Poison Crow encapsulate the aggression and attitude that defines what Bristol’s heavy music scene is all about. Lyrical content exploring morbid fantasy and masochistic self-destruction paired seductively with captivating vocal melodies, to juxtapose against a crushing lead guitar and cutting rhythm section.”
“Kite Thief are 5 Alt Rock/Prog Metal aerial toy stealing swindlers from sunny Bristol, UK. Joyously brimming with heavy groovy riffs meticulously balanced with catchy choruses and a ballsy rhythm section. This band knows how to write a hook!
Debut single Pinky Promise played on BBC Introducing and featured as ‘Track Of The Week’ on Tim Week’s BBC Wiltshire show ‘The Social’
Watch your Kites. Theft is imminent.”
“Discovering each other as Students in Bristol, the punks who call themselves ‘Cuffs’ are the newest sound in the punk scene. With drilling riffs, heavy drum hits and social frustration inspired lyrics, Cuffs music will inspire you to take action, question the system around you, and have a damn good time while you do it. Coming from different parts of the UK (Devon, Gloucester and Wales), Brodie Morgans (vocals), Lewis Harwood (drums), Will Kenneth (Bass) and Matthew Cook (Guitar), have collaborated their influences to give you the newest sound in the Bristol rock scene.
‘I had heard about the high impact, high energy stage performances and the evening didn’t disappoint. If Brodie wasn’t sailing across a sea of hands then it was guitarist Matt and Bassist Will diving into the throng of the energised crowd… If you like your lyrics politically laced and your beats fast, then these lads are a must catch.’ – The Bristol Gig Guide
“Burnout are a Bristol-based trio with so much friggin’ attitude that they don’t even have a bio for us to copy and paste to put here. But we can tell you now, they are fucking sick. That should be enough. Angsty, snot-nosed punk rock with an edge so sharp it’ll split your tinny” – On The House
“If A Void are here to release some political angst, though, headliners Brasher are here to bring the party – and boy, do they bring it with some aplomb. Opening with ‘Fuck Shades’, Brasher win the crowd over immediately with their fast, rowdy brand of southern-tinged punk/garage rock, notably with the bruising-but-groovy ‘Six Foot Biscuit’. Although their debut album Everything has only been released on the day of this show, the songs are so strong that they immediately feel familiar.
Singer Max may look like a World War II airman, but he absolutely tears this place up with his fierce, gravelly vocals. Behind him, Mel and Stu interplay brilliantly on guitar and bass, and Lea absolutely pounds the drumkit. Musically, they probably sound most like The Bronx, but with a much more positive energy. As a live act, they are all about the fun, with their flamboyant movements and crowd-pleasing sensibilities almost being reminiscent of 80s hair metal, in a good way.
Everything really is ridiculously good for a debut record, and it is absolutely mind-boggling that this is only Brasher’s third ever show. They have so much charisma, and they are tighter than a duck’s arse on stage; you would think they had been touring together for years. No band has the right to be this good, this quickly.
In a city that knows its punk rock like Bristol does, Brasher are going to become local favourites in no time at all, absolutely guaranteed.” – Bristol In Stereo
One of On The House Music Management & Bookings prodigy bands, the Exeter-based grunge punks have been around for years but never secured a full line up until now. We’ve been friends with these guys since the start (before On The House even existed!) and their chaotic and almost intimidating stage presence always demanded our full attention, so when we had the opportunity to help introduce them to the world, we couldn’t say no! Cathartic, energetic, blood-curdling grunge punk/hardcore that’ll leave you toothless and broken.
“Insane crossover thrash-hardcore with relentless energy and a formidable tone to make sure you’re not slacking on your mosh exercises – they are essential for any underground show after all. For the more reserved music lovers, you may want to take a step back, the rest of you, probably two steps forward.” – On The House
“Fronted by the imitable Dave Growler, Spitting Blood are authentic angry punk poets. Honest to the point tunes from the Streets of Exeter scene with a charm to boot.”
“Spitting Blood are one of Exeters most prolific and legendary underground bands, we are absolutely ecstatic to have them opening the Main Stage and bringing their intense and entertaining brand of hardcore punk to the big city, after years in the making, to finally share our dirty little secret with you – not ones to miss” – On The House
“DIY Hardcore Band Wrongens, started in 2018, their vision of punk rock is a blend of gut-punchingly heavy riffs, aggressive in-your-face vocals and a powerful rhythm section. Taking influence from bands such as Gallows and Idles.”
“I’ve been begging for Wrongens to release a debut track since I saw them live at one of their very first shows last year in Exeter. Their energy and overall demeanour was inherently abrasive, yet charmingly embracive. The atmosphere of a hometown show is always special for any artist, but for these guys that energy manifested into their performance and really struck a chord with me. Now, I’ve finally been given what i’ve been asking for all year, their debut single ‘Light’ came out very recently and what an impactful debut it is.
Aggressively charged, riff heavy hardcore punk with a guttural vocal that reminds me of new-school Gallows with less technicality, but way, way more raw power.” – Marcus / On The House
