Thursday 5th August

£8 Advance Tickets,

Dub Pistols are a London based dub music and big beat band, founded by ex-club promoter, Barry Ashworth, in 1996. The other members of the band were record producer and bassist Jason O’Bryan, Brooklyn producer and lyricist, T. K. Lawrence on vocals, Jap Slut guitarist John King, and turntablist Steve Hunt. Guest songwriters and vocalists include Blade, James Dewes Sheffield (JMS), Rodney King and Terry Hall. In 2008 Dan Bowskill joined the band.
The band debuted in late 1996 with the singles “There’s Gonna Be a Riot” and “Best Got Better”. By the time of their 1998 debut album Point Blank, big beat appeared to have run its course, however Dub Pistols remained an infectious live draw, startling audiences in the United Kingdom and around the world. The group’s second album, Six Million Ways to Live, appeared in 2001 and was followed a year later by the mix album Y4K: Next Level Breaks. Read more… »

APPEARING ON Friday, August 13th, 2010

The Fevers [+]

£4 Entry

The Fevers were formed in 2006 as a four piece – vocals, 2 guitars, bass and drums. All of us had previously formed a part of various bands within the Sheffield area. Three years of gigs in Sheffield proved fruitful in creating a sound where punk harshness meets a melange of spacious guitars, underpinned by a blues-funk rhythm section. After a gig free spell towards the end of 2008, we began 2009 with a busy schedule including the release of the single “Alright”, followed by a number of live dates in the UK. During the subsequent tour, we lost our bass player due to “musical differences”!?! However this has not deterred us from continuing our musical tradition and Kev, our singer and rhythm guitarist, has simply switched to playing bass and singing in our new 3 piece line up. We are embracing the new and interesting possibilities of the dynamic created by this new lineup as we search for anyone that would like to join us in our quest!
