Gimp Fist

We can’t wait for Gimp Fist to hit Riverside Newcastle for round two on Saturday the 3rd of November!

For most of us there are old English bands that took place in our personal history of Punk, Oi! or whatever! Some of us have seen those bands in the past and some of us listen to their music on CD or see their shows now (often not the better ones).

However with this band you have the old power and authenticity in the present. Good music, great songs and lyrics – this is Gimp Fist now. Also on their gigs they transfer those feelings and the power to the crowd. Visit their Myspace-Site or their shows and buy their albums – you will not regret it.

Exploited + GBH

The Exploited are a Scottish punk rock band from Edinburgh, Scotland, formed in 1979, in Edinburgh by Stevie Ross and Terry Buchan and later by ex-soldier Wattie Buchan (Terry’s brother). They signed to Secret Records in March 1981, and that year released their debut EP Army Life.

The album Punks Not Dead followed that year. The band maintained a large cult following in the 1980s among a hardcore working class punk and skinhead audience. Their songs have been covered by Slayer and Ice-T, and despite many lineup changes, Wattie has remained as the Exploited’s singer and leader.

Charged GBH, commonly known as GBH, are an English street punk band which was formed in 1978 by vocalist Colin Abrahall, guitarist Colin “Jock” Blyth, bassist Sean McCarthy (replaced by Ross Lomas by the time they had signed to Clay records) and Drummer Andy “Wilf” Williams. GBH were early pioneers of English street punk, often nicknamed “UK82″, along with Discharge, Broken Bones, The Exploited and The Varukers. GBH have gone on to influence several punk rock musicians.

The name GBH was inspired by then-bassist Sean McCarthy’s trial for grievous bodily harm. Though the core line up of Colin, Ross and Jock has stayed the same throughout their history the drum stool has been occupied by a number of incumbents following Wilf’s departure after the Midnight Madness and Beyond album and Oh No It’s GBH again 12” ep. 1986 saw the arrival of German drummer Kai Reder who played on three albums and an EP (No Need To Panic, A Fridge Too Far and From Here To Reality, as well as the “Wot A Bargain” 12″), Kai was then replaced by American, Joe “Fish” Montanero for one album (Church of The Truly Warped), this was the band’s last release for the Rough Justice label. The drum stool was then occupied from around 1994 by former Bomb Disneyland/Bomb Everything drummer Scott Preece, who has remained to this day and played on all releases since.
