Gig Description

The Vibrators – From Pure Mania in 1977 onwards The Vibrators set out their stall as the accomplished but still utterly kick ass end of Romantic punk n roll, showing the upstarts how it’s done. Searing, scintillating speedin’ rock and roll that they pulse along at such a pace commanded brilliantly by long standing lynchpin Eddie at the drums, you can’t possibly relax for a second coz yer having such a good time. They don’t ease off the gas for a second.  Eddie reconvened with legendary songwriter and frontman Knox, original bassist and uber producer Pat Collier and guitarist John Ellis (Peter Gabriel, The Stranglers etc)  just before lockdown and created the critically acclaimed album ‘Mars Casino’..we are exceedingly excited to say that iconic lineup gathers together tonight in The Dublin, so it really is one festive vibration you must not miss… Steve Hooker Stripped Down Stompin Band  – super charged dirty Essex Delta rocknroll trio fronted by long standing guitar guru Mr Hooker, a powerhouse who get a reet good and grinding riffology going and take it to the dancefloor with a sleazy Link Wray twang and a bulbous Bo Diddley beat…damn good. DamageUK – Nuffin‘s re-emergence on the UK punk scene after a nigh on 30 years absence has been a revelation, a joyful punk pop explosion of delight…and here’s what might have happened next if they hadn’t quit safety pins and gone off and got proper jobs…Brian Damage guitarist from Nuffin and bassist Paul Flynn have recruited some new chaps and in DamageUK explore some darker post punk terrain and a fair bit of Clash-ness. Some nice Joy Division-ish guitar figures and some prowling Ruts touches too.
