W partied hard till 5am and saw the New Year in with an almighty Brixton blast.
We had two great rock'n'roll bands onstage in the shape of the mighty Sly Persuaders and formidable big-in-Japan Atomic Suplex - plus the usual DJs till dawn, playing top notch ska, drum and bass, reggae, rock and roll, skiffle, rockabilly, punk, dance and good time music tunes.

The mosh pit starts up!
We DJd till 5am and had a great party crowd in the house!
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
Rising from the ashes of Dr Vampire, Garage-noise-wranglers the Sly Persuaders distil surfed-up swagger and industrial-strength fuzz into something potent enough to take your eyebrows off. They formed in South London in 2012 and have been busy drinking their way through gig riders ever since.
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.
Flying in from East london to get the party started, we're delighted to welcome back an original Offline DJ!
Expect a saucy set of killer soul, ska, R&B, bluebeat and funk 45s slammed down by one of sarf London's finest.
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.
Videos and photo slideshows of street photography, random amusements and weird shizzle from the internet.
