Punks Not Dad – New Release

I don’t know how these boys do it but they’ve managed to get Peter Bowles in this, and Lisa Rogers dressed as a schoolgirl….bloody marvellous.

The songs called Monkey Boots (I had some of those) and the video’s below. Enjoy.

If the people who book the bands for Rebellion ever see this please book these guys…ideal for the BB stage.

Punks Not Dad

One of the joys of being old and loving Punk, is that every now and then something grabs my attention and makes me smile. It looks like Punks Not Dad are the band Punk Grandad would be….if I could play guitar or sing.

Punks Not Dad are a band with great tunes such as In Me Shed, We are the Dads, Gaye Adverts Eyes and Man Flu. The video for In Me Shed is a classic, and how they got Lisa Rogers to appear in it I’ll never know. Maybe she’s one of their daughters.

The band members areΒ  Joe Strimmer – bass, Sid Life Crisis – vox, Johnny Cardigan – guitar, Adrian Viles. They describe themselves as masters of anarchy, destruction and careful step by step adherence to the instructions during the assembly of IKEA furniture .Brilliant

If they are as good live as they are on My Space they will be well worth ten bob of anyones money.
