Be Sharp Promotions & New Cross Inn Present:
The Talks – First London gig for far too long.
In just a short space of time The Talks have built themselves a compelling live reputation across the UK and Europe for delivering sweaty, high octane, dance floor filling shows, treading the boards with the likes of Madness, The Specials, Rancid, The Beat and many more.
With main stage performances at globally renowned festivals such as ‘This Is Ska’ (DE), ‘Mighty Sounds’ (CZ) and ‘Rebellion’, tweets of appraisal and support from new wave big hitters ‘Less Than Jake’, glowing reviews and cover features from Big Cheese and Vive Le Rock Magazines – not to mention appearing in programmes on various UK TV networks – the bands reputation has surged from strength to strength.
The Bar Stool Preachers – Our boys from Brighton, making a triumphant return after a storming headline show in December
“British music magazine Vive Le Rock hails the band as having “all the energy of The Specials in their heyday,” and we could not agree more. The Bar Stool Preachers the the perfect antidote to all of the run-of-the-mill, industry standard apathy we see in modern music today. It’s edgy, new and above all different.
Endless packed-out shows across the UK and mainland Europe prove that we’re not the only ones who feel that way. Fresh off the back of their first single, “One Fool Down”, this LP combines the best of ska, punk, and reggae into a fun barrage of songs that can get even the most jaded singing along to” – Pirates Press
The Pisdicables – Bunch of wrong’uns
Six-piece ska punk screw ups from South East London. Formed in a garage in 2012, The Pisdicables have taken their scrappy vibes & torn up stages all across the UK & Europe with the likes of The Toasters, Inner Terrestrials, King Hammond, Dirty Revolution, Anti Vigilante and Chewing On Tinfoil. Originally a hardcore punk band but over time they have found their own skanking sound
The Tips – Reggae, Rock, Punk, Soul on Long Beach Records
Reggae music from Dusseldorf, Germany? Not the sound that most people would associate with that city. People familiar with today’s youth culture might default to images of Germany’s underground punk movement. THE TiPS, however, began their musical journey within that scene and immediately introduced elements of cozy reggae along with smooth soul into their hard driving punk songs. A process which created their unique sound and style. Punks of all sub genres, however, continue to follow their fellow travelers even while the band’s style has been quickly attracting a larger and more diverse fan base.
