FREE ALL NIGHT!
This night was huge! We featured the world premiere of the incredible MRS MILLS EXPERIENCE, a reinvented music hall singalong sensation.
Taking on the honky tonk might of Mrs Mills we had rock-hard garage punksters ATOMIC SUPLEX, with much drinking, dancing and party-sized earfuls of ska, electro, punk, rock'n'roll, Motown, dancehall, big band, Thin Lizzy, Beyonce and rockabilly from the DJs till 2.30am!

MRS MILLS EXPERIENCE
Rolling out a barrel of irony-untroubled, hipster-free, good time
entertainment, the Mrs Mills Experience is made up of an unlikely
combination of Brixton-based dance DJs and punk musicians united by
their improbable love of piano-thumper extraordinaire, Mrs Gladys
Delivering a variety pack of authentic, working class singalong tunes,
the Mrs Mills Experience aims to make the audience the star,
unleashing a salvo of good time music for these austerity stricken
Such was the buzz behind this new outfit that a prestigious Saturday
night slot at this year's Vintage Festival was secured - without the
band even recording a demo!
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
DJs on the night
An ale-fuelled onslaught of ska, punk, rock'n'roll, big band, rockabilly, Mrs Mills and Liberace in a floor stomping package.
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, random amusements and weird shizzle from the internet.
