30th May, The Cross Kings, London. Doors are at 3pm (and my band are on at 4.30pm). ONLY £3 and it runs 'til 2am for the hardcore. Plus not too far from the Wilmington Arms if you're going there - you can catch a load of this and then a load of theirs and then come back for the DJs. PARTY ALL THE TIME PARTY ALL THE TIME. Sod the FA Cup Final.


8 brilliant bands and 11 hours of fun and frolics (assuming you are still standing at the end of the night) for just £3!!! We kid you not, that is the equivalent of less than 40p per band – now you really can’t argue with that, can you!

It all kicks off at 3pm on Saturday the 30th May at the Cross Kings in Kings Cross: and the party carries on until 2am, with DJ’s playing a mishmash of all kinds of wrongness from 60’s garage to old skool hip-hop, electro and indie classics.

There will be performances from the following bands/acts:

The Refuseniks
The Refuseniks - the sound of Elvis falling down the stairs, then dusting himself off and going back to the bar. This is now a Zac solo set, I think.

Kite Season
A weird and wonderful mishmash of sounds. Kite Season will make you sit up and pay attention! They rock!

Falling Majesties
Falling Majesties play dreamy Narco Pop with electronic beats and effects-laden guitars. Shoe-gazing at its best! (And they’re hot!) :)

Battyho http:///
Battyho is the newest and freshest artist to come from the urban music scene since Dizzee Rascal. He is the "Queen of Chavs" with his dirty lyrics and council estate attitude, combined with his very own phat bass and kicking drumz. And may we add – he’s bloody funny!

The Fourth Criminal
"The Fourth Criminal has continued to spread havoc around Europe, and their album, with seven priceless gems, shows no different approach to the aim of becoming the first band to be banned from the internet!" - Johan Billing, Electric Fantastic Sound

Big riffs, slide guitars, and girl vocals with attitude. This trio sounds like heavy, sleazy 70’s rock with a hint of White Stripes – brilliant!

The Fighting Cocks
“…the 5,6,7,8's meets Jilted John, with surfer riffs, rockabilly, old skool hip hop scratching and an underlying wit that could curdle milk. The kind of band you'd love to hang out with, and you'd be dead in a week mind you" -Daily Star

“Remember the end of Blazing Saddles? When the big cowboy punch-up finale spills over into the studio next door where a load of tap-dancing top hatters join in on the fight? Well this sounds like the soundtrack; except also with rockabilly badasses, cockney rude boys, a Romanian wedding and day-glo ravers in on the punch-up - all curated by a particularly manic and sleazy special edition of Eurotrash.” -The Skinny

Penny Broadhurst and The Maffickers
"Penny and her band of Maffickers make big-hearted, feel-good songs with glossy, chewy centres topped with sassy Blondie-esque vocals...indie-disco sparkle with a sprig of melancholic soul."
- Artrocker
