All the way from North Carolina (home of the Wright Brothers and largest producer of sweet potatoes in the USA), Joint D≠ are a 3-piece punk band taking cues from classic Japanese hardcore and Born Against, amongst other things. They also feature members of Brain F≠ and Logic Problem. This is the last show of a brief UK tour, so send them back to the USA in style.
One of NO's local shows before jetting off for an American tour to play the New York's Alright fest and a tour with Stoic Violence.
Local straight up hardcore punk. They do it well and are getting better with every show.
Members of Good Throb, Lich and Family Outing playing "slightly creepy RP-style hardcore".They played their first gig last week and were great, so we're excited to have them back again.

A London band signed to fab US label Shelflife Records The Fireworks capture the spirit of late 80s buzz saw guitars. Vocals shared between Matthew and Emma. The sound of speed. Razor sharp guitars. Ice cool bass lines. And a mean tambourine.
Claire and Paolo make magic happen. We're delighted to welcome back Odd Box favourites for this show. The band will finally be releasing their debut single 'Pale' on Banquet Records in early 2014.
A new punk-pop duo from Dan and Andy (formally of Standard Fare). The band have just unveiled 3 cracking demos. Fans of the 'fare won't be disappointed as Skeletal Shakes have plenty of the pop swagger that made everyone love their former band.

Che Ge Zebra
A side project of Sheffield's all-conquering Wooderson. These guys are good, take heed. They describe themselves as like 'Shellac, Sandy Nelson, Fugazi, That Fucking Tank,The Jesus Lizard, soundtracks to Quentin Tarantino movies, and George Michael. No other bands'
The long awaited reprisal of the sardonic spazz slack attack. Unafraid of alliteration. The bar band from a planet in a slightly shitter universe.
Resonance FM says, 'khaos by name khaos by nature.'
Here they are in full swing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FHGFHAUjRH8
