We'll be expecting a packed, hot'n'sticky Brixton night for this fantastic double bill featuring the swamp-rock cabaret kings JUKE BARITONE & THE SWAMP DOGS, with the brilliant rockabilly star JD Smith in support, plus a ton of ace DJs rocking Coldharbour Lane till 3am. And it's FREE all night!
JUKE BARITONE & THE SWAMP DOGS
Imagine Tom Waits with a hangover at a Screamin' Jay Hawkins gig in New Orleans... this red hot Aussie outfit will rock the joint with a steamy set of swampy, vaudeville rock'n'roll fused with tales of boozing, women, drugs and politics...
"It's chaotic, it's maniacal and it's absolutely, comprehensively in your face... a genre clashing brand of drinking songs to the point that it's an absolute disadvantage to be sober or seated."
"...it might just make the perfect soundtrack to your next night of unbridled debauchery" CD Baby (USA)
"The energy and character behind their tunes drags the people seated upstairs to the bottom level... until eventually, the tops of the tables are at capacity as well" Soulshine (AU)
"With six members playing a dozen instruments the band teeters on the edge of rock'n'roll destruction..."
"With hard driving Australian Rock based influences and a dirty sound reminiscent of a Louisiana gravel road, lyrics that are
naughty and sometimes crude they'll probably never get airplay on American radio but hey, it's the Blues." The Blogging Poet (USA)
J D SMITH
Described as "fascinatingly bareboned rockabilly gothique," JD's punk-fuelled set is a must-see!
"JD Smith's take on old-fashioned rock and blues is charming and toe-tappin', delivered with a directness and honesty that tips it's hat to the spirit of Charlie Feathers and other long-gone knee-tremblers." Bizarre Magazine
"J.D. Smith was astounding, a Rockabilly and blues one man guitar wunderkind " Distorted magazine
" powerful rockabilly gems...an experience not to be missed" Seatwave
Original photos, street scenes, Brixton shots and protest footage and more.
We'll also have a full crew of hard-drinking Offline regulars throwing down a selection of ska, punk, reggae, roots, rock'n'roll, new wave, punk, big band, garage rock and more, rocking on till the early hours, including:
EDITOR (urban75) An ale-fuelled onslaught of ska, punk, rock'n'roll, big band, rockabilly, Mrs Mills & Liberace in a floor stomping package proving that drinking'n'DJing can be a perilous trade
NIPSLA (Falling over studios) Packing more pop than a Rice Krispies factory, Nipsla's DJ bag is a veritable jumble sale of joy, overflowing with indie, dance, electro and party tunes.
BOBBY BAUHAUS (charcoal soul) More mysterious than Robert Smith's eyeliner bag, Bobby gets dancefloors rocking with quirky, darkside indie-pop and kohl-smudging breakbeats.
SIM KARD SUZI (telecommmmm systems)
Famed for her all night broadcasts on Drink FM, this queen of the dance floor communications serves up righteous slabs of hardcore ska, obscure punk rock and 1930s tea dance music.
