Friday 22
Screaming Tarts presents
The Main Grains
Deadaudiosaints + Fallen Fields
Danny McCormack returns with fellow rock`n`roll hooligans and sonic assassins – guitarists Ben Marsden (ex- Modern day Dukes) and JJ Watt (ex – Spill 16 & Whiskey Haze) along with drummer Ginna Rhodes (ex – Psychobabylon & Phluid) to form THE MAIN GRAINS – quality purveyors of what they refer to as Northern Punk Rock. `Natch a must for all fans of The Wildhearts and The Yo-Yo`s here is a band infused with what rock`n`roll is truly all about – seriously bad-ass riffage, shout and reply choruses with a power pop edge and punk rock energy and attitude. A melting pot of The Ramones, The Wildhearts, Phil Spector, Blondie and full of what so much of todays bands miss out on totally – FUN !!!

While 2016 wasn’t the best of years due to to Danny suffering both an aneurysm and complications following it, which has led to the loss of his lower leg, the band still managed an unannounced debut at the NLC Rocking For The Children event in April, followed by successful shows at the Camden Barfly, and Camden Rocks festival, along with some dates with Ginger Wildheart and Ryan Hamilton & The Traitors in the summer, closing out the year with a great run of shows round the UK with The Wildhearts, and have started the 2017 in the same way, with big things to be announced as we go.

Fractal presents
Space Dimension Controller
Fractal presents the heavy hitting intergalactic time traveller Space Dimension Controller, making his Hull debut.

Having released on Ninja Tune, R&S Records and Clone Records his retro-futurist sound has garnered fans from across the globe (maybe even the galaxy).

If you’re unfamiliar with his boundary-pushing production then we strongly advise you check out his album ‘Orange Melamine’, drawing audio cues from old VHS tapes from Power Rangers to Ghostbusters! Those who are privileged enough to have seen him live will know how much this man can get a crowd going. With intergalactic funk and smutty techno, let SDC take you on a warped trip through time to a place lost somewhere between the funk-filled 80’s and a deep post-apocalyptic future.

Limited to 120 tickets as always to keep you breezy – don’t miss out!

The Homesick
The Netherlands best kept secret

If you ever wandered around in the north of the Netherlands and came across a town called Dokkum, you must have been really lucky. Or your GPS was on the fritz. This little town is the home for the youthful trio The Homesick, whose sound plays on pop music. Not the kind with slick beats and audacious vocal effects, but rather the kind that is closer to the Beatles, that was created as an escape from reality and that allows the imagination to let loose. Since the release of their first EP three years ago, when the boys were not yet old enough to order beer, their pop has developed into something more daring, noisy and experimental. Selected Dutch and British media are already hooked, while the band’s debut LP is just about to be released. Something you will definitely feel homesick for.

One not to miss !!

Matinee performance, doors 2 pm.

Sorry, I’ve not been able to get a price for it but I wouldn’t expect it to be more than a fiver.
