Rebellion 2011 – Aug 4th – 7th

The ticket is bought, the B&B is booked, just need to get some beer money….how excited am I???? I will be up there on the Weds night, can anyone suggest a good watering hole for the Weds. (last time I went I never got there a day early). Any bands playing pre-gig gigs? Did that make sense?

The line up this year is immense, (see below), I strongly urge anyone who has not been before BUY A FUCKIN TICKET….if only to see the Boys, the Restarts or Jericho Hill (had to add them in this sentence). Just go to the website…link on the right. Best ton you’ll ever spend.

Price Increase

Sorry to announce this but we have had to put up our prices for our T-shirts on our main site.
Please feel free to blame this on the Tories…it certainly makes me feel better…but the truth is prices are going up everywhere and its being passed on to us. If we didn’t do this we would not be able to carry on.

Once again, really sorry, but I hope you continue to support us.

Merry Christmas Punk

Just to wish you all a merry xmas and a great New Year…..

Resolutions…..write more on this Blog, enjoy Rebellion 2011, create more T’s for the PG site, go to more gigs……..

Covers

Sat listening to my ipod and Helter Skelter by Souisxie kicked in and it just hit the spot. What a fantastic cover. It took a mediocre Beatles number and turned it into a Punk classic……bloody marvellous. This got me thinking and so I thought I’d post five of my favourites. Enjoy.

1. Helter Skelter – Souisxie and the Banshees

2. U2 and Green Day – The Saints are Coming. Brilliant song by the Skids made into a political statement by this version.

3. Police and Thieves – The Clash. Cover of a Junior Mervin song and the first time I’d really listened to a Reggae tune.I love the Clash for that.

4. White Christmas – Stiff Little Fingers. Great feel good song covered at 100mph….love it

5. Stranglers – Walk on By. Just for the bassline…..

Of course there are 100’s of covers that can be considered Punk, or covers of Punk….if you like something more let us know or post it……
