The Rebel has been a huge influence on many bands around south London so last June, we thought we'd give him a four-week residency and invite along some guests. They were such good times that we decided to run it again this year, every Wednesday in June.
And, if you want to come to all four nights, there's a special season ticket available for £13.
The alter ego of Country Teasers’ Ben Wallers, The Rebel dates back to the tail-end of the 80s—having existed side-by-side throughout Country Teasers’ prolific career—often releasing records at a steadier clip than Waller’s main project with songs too madcap to fit into even their William-Burroughs-by-way-of-The-Residents take on country music.
‘Dirty, gritty psychedelia, the band match the low-slung growl of The Birthday Party, say, to the organ-wash of The Seeds.’ - Clash Magazine
‘…a burbling swamp of acidic organ, bad-trip vocals and lacerating guitars’ - Q MAGAZINE
