It's another huge Brixton night out, mixing up the floor-shaking 12 piece Balkan punk brass outfit, the TRANS SIBERIAN MARCH BAND with the rebel-rousing, rag'n'bone punk folk of the incredible JARMEAN? plus a full crew of top DJs laying down a party mix of tunes.
TRANS SIBERIAN MARCH BAND
A wonderfully chaotic and exhilaratingly brilliant 12 piece gypsy Balkan brass sensation packing a fiesta of tubas, trombones and clattering things, the Trans Siberian crew have been picking up rave reviews.
"Balkan ska meets Ottoman battle punk in The Trans-Siberian's obscenely infectious brass blow-out"
"The Sex Pistols of Balkan Brass...Punk brass world beat oddities"
"Music of the people for the people by this Balkanic-Latino band who love to party" - TIME OUT
This incredible outfit managed to mix up Ian Dury, punk and George Formby into an irresistible feast of knees up, good time music.
"Funk and skankalong pop reggae get the post Streets poetry treatment" - BLANG 2008
"Rag and bone folk punk uncannily spot on to their quoted influences of Ian Dury, Eric Idle and George Formby" - BUGBEAR 2008
"Heavenly London four piece Jarmean, funk and skankalong reggae, get the post Streets poetry treatment. Think Ian Dury meets George Formby with a jaw-dropping lady drummer" - LOST VAGUENESS
"Wonderfully old fashioned in a way that could only be British... 'Mind the Gap' tickles the fancy in a way that brass backed jingle can like no other." - GLASSWERK NATIONAL 2008
