FREE ALL NIGHT!
The hatches were well and truly battened down for a loud, sweaty night of sweet rock and roll debauchery with ATOMIC SUPLEX, backed by lo-fi Garage/Popsters NERVOUS TWITCH from Leeds, plus drink-crazed DJs slamming down the floor-filling party tunes. It was mayhem!
Given a slot at the last minute after they were cruelly double booked elsewhere, Leeds lo-fi garage band Nervous Twitch served up a feast of short, sharp tunes.
The welcome return of the awesome wall of rock and roll noise that is Atomic Suplex.
Already a smash in Japan, this loud, trashy rock'n'roll band will be performing their hot new single, 'Rock & Roll Must Die'.
Expect screeching guitars, brain-drilling bass, pounding drums and a half ton of feedback from this awesome garage punk outfit - Sonics meet Guitar Wolf!
"Not so much a sonic cathedral as a sonic corrugated iron shed" Time out
"Soon to be huge with their Ramones in a blender sound and their furious live show" Croydon WIRED
"Screaming, overdriven rock n roll compression at it's best. Atomic Suplex are the British Guitar Wolf, the English Lightning Bolt or maybe the London New York Dolls" DHTBT
...deliver Garage-Punk smashers X-Mist Germany
"Atomic Suplex dispense with the formalities (read: the tune) altogether, preferring to unleash one and a half minutes of pure offensive distortion. [They are] a rare thing of beauty - and deserve your ass for dinner" Artrocker
Straight outta Leeds, these lo-fi Garage/Popsters serve up short, sharp power-pop tunes mixing influences like the Ramones, Matchbox B-Line Disaster and top punk from the 70s.
We'll also have a full crew of hard-drinking Offline regulars throwing down a top selection of tunes, including:
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.
BARON 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.
Videos and photo slideshows of street photography, punk rock posters and weird shizzle from the internet.
