Charred Hearts are an old school UK Punk Band hailing from Swindon in the Southwest, originally called The Corpses, they formed in 1981. They were came together from the remnants of their previous two bands, The BCG's and Static Annoyers. A bunch of street-drinking 15 & 16 year old urchins, they found their mini-rebellion in a disenchanted Thatcherite England easy. The band were followed by their local 'Corpses Barmy Army'.
In 1983 they changed their name to Charred Hearts, during this time they gigged with bands such as the Subhumans, Newtown Neurotics, Rubella Ballet, Chumbawumba and Action Pact. Several recordings were made at this but are now pretty much impossible to get hold of. By 1996 the band became disillusioned with all things musical and disbanded.
In 2000 a chance meeting of all four original band members ended in the idea of reforming the band, originally, just for a one-off show in March 2001. However after a fantastic gig to 300+ people, they decided to kepp it going and began gigging ferociously. An EP 'Good Boys' was quickly released and loads of shows were to follow. During the 2005 recording of the album 'The Triumph and the Tragedy' the original guitarist, Pat, left the band and guitars duties were completed by the albums producer. Shortly after the CD release the band suffered the loss of it's original drummer, Dave, due to work commitments. This now left the only two original members, Dermot Fuller (Vocals) and Eamon Treanor (Bass), with a bit of a headache, however they soon recruited and old friend Lee Fellows (An original member of the 'Corpses Barmy Army') on guitar and the singer's son, Sam Fuller, on drums. This proved quite a masterstroke, as the current line-up is now the most dynamic ever. This band now kicks ass live! and supports/tours with the likes of UK Subs, Vice Squad, The Subhumans, Goldblade, Sham 69, The Business and loads more.
In 2009 a tour of Scandinavia took place and then a slot on the 2009 Rebellion festival in Blackpool. A Punk Rock classic single 'Persecute Me' was released by this line-up.
2010 saw a headline slot at a Punk festival in France, a return appearance at the Rebellion festival and shows across France, Germany and Spain.
It's 2011 and the Charred Hearts are celebrating their 30th anniversary! They have lined up live gigs with the Buzzcocks, Anti-Nowhere League, GBH and Blitzkrieg to name but a few, along with local gigs and a short tour of Germany combined with appearances at the Stoke Ska/Punk Fest, Nice 'n' Sleazy Festival, Glasgow Phoenix Mayhem Punkfest and Rebellion Festival ... it's certainly a busy year!
The Bleach Boys are a punk rock band from Hertfordshire who have been playing together since 1977.
Originally known as the Fur Coughs, the group\'s name was given to them by the philosopher Simon Critchley, and is a play on The Beach Boys. Over the years, the band have released a series of records including in 1977 their 7 inch single "Chloroform", which was featured in Record Collector as one of the most collectable punk singles. Recent releases have been all on CD, the latest being We've Got the Bomb released on their own Zombie International label.
The most recent change in line up saw Sean leave to work in the Middle East, with Rob Hague ex of S*M*A*S*H stepping in as his replacement.
The band played the Rebellion Festival at Blackpool, England, in 2010 and 2011 and earlier in 2011, recorded a new two track CD single with Andy Davis, who was responsible for their first CD. This was released in December 2011 and features the new songs Guantanamo Baby and Deathlist 2.
Emergency Bitter are a mild, unassuming bunch who got together for the love of drinking, punk rock and having a good night out. The South West London four piece have charmed and entertained punters for the last four years with gigs in and around the capital playing their brand of old school punk reminiscent of Cock Sparrer in their pomp.
The band have finally released their first long awaited recordings in the form of The Football EP on T.R.I.M. Recordings, four songs loosely based around their love of football and the characters they know, with long standing live favourite Sold My Soul as the lead track. This is a taster for their debut album which is scheduled for release later in 2012.
We have some more shows lined up in the near future so come on down and have a drink with us. If you want to book us let us know, as we really need to get out more... See you at the bar, it\'s your round EB.
