We thought we’d list some of the bands we admire / have had the good fortune to host / want to have play for us!  Obviously just started the list, and I’m drinking.. I may forget this page exists for a few months!

Fecking Ace Punk Bands

Pizza Tramp – three-piece two chord thrash punk crossover band from the hard streets of South Wales.  Fast as fuck and one of the most exciting bands on the scene at the moment.

Wonk Unit – long time Scary Clown friends, who return time after time to revel in the wonk fam love.

Vanilla Pod – these crazy boys have been part of the DIY Punk scene for long enough to have fathered many illegitimate spin off bands.  Just keep em away from the cider long enough to get em on stage!

Roughneck Riot – a total wall of sound, and a fantastic band.  ‘Folk’ punk with political attitude from “up north”.

Local venues

Mama Liz’s Voodoo Lounge – GREAT smallish (125 capacity) cellar venue with stage/lighting and an ace sound system and sound engineer.  Above ground it’s a good creole restaurant and bar (great cocktails and decent beer).

Ostrich Inn – Peterborough city centre real ale and craft beer pub (lots of gins too).  Run by Simon a good guy who enjoys the DIY punk sound.  Gigs are free entry / paid by the venue – not a custom venue so bands play in one of the areas around the main bar (we feel better for acoustic and stripped down nights).  No dedicated PA but Simon can arrange.

The Heron – we’ve not put a show on here ourselves yet, but it’s got a decent sized function room (no dedicated PA/lights so you’ll need to rent/bring those in yourself).  Stanground/Peterborough.
