Cockney Rejects

COCKNEY REJECTS
NO THRILLS
THE MUFF WIGS

Rarely in the long history of British rock’n’roll has there been a story of such depth, magnitude and sheer turbulence as that of the Cockney Rejects.

The band were formed in the late Seventies in East London as an answer to the art school punk that had dominated the scene up until then.

Fiercely working class in stance and attitude, the band eschewed the political ramblings of punk’s first wave and sang about the circumstances that surrounded them and millions of street kids in Britain’s inner cities- Police harassment, street battles and football to name three.

Signed by EMI after playing four local gigs (less than The Pistols!) they found themselves playing sell out tours the length and breadth of the UK and seeing their debut album storm the charts.

Top of the pops appearances followed, which became the stuff of legend as the band generally ran amok in the hallowed White city studios, finally getting banned from the show for their boisterous behavior.

In 1980 the band recorded a riotous version of ‘I’m forever blowing bubbles’ to celebrate the fact that their beloved West Ham United had reached the FA cup final that year, but their devotion to all things claret and blue proved to be their downfall as the gigs became battlegrounds between the band and rival supporters, culminating in the vicious ‘Battle of Birmingham’ that led to serious criminal charges that in turn led to the band being finished as a touring unit.

With the band’s first phase being over, in the interim they were discovered by a brand new fanbase such as US bands Rancid and Green Day, who cherished the Rejects and their terrace punk singalong anthems which, in turn, inspired a new generation of kids to check them out.

Due to overwhelming demand, the band returned to the live circuit in 2000, and have since gone from strength to strength, playing to hundreds of thousands of people across the globe with a live set that is so energetic that it has to be seen to be believed.

With the fractionalization of the late ‘70’s and early ‘80’s now gone for good, with every gig becoming a party for fans and band alike, the Cockney Rejects go from strength to strength.

With a feature length documentary, ‘East End Babylon’ and a brand new album of the same name being released in October 2012, there has never been a better time to check out the band that inspired a generation with their timeless brand of terrace sing along classics and white hot live set.

Doors: 8pm
Admission: £14.00 advance / £16.00 on the door. Ages 14+. Please see entry policy for info.
Tickets: Buy tickets online* or call SeeTickets on 0871 220 0260*. Alternatively, pop into The Kings Head* (over 18s only), The Cumberland News Office* (Bank Street, Carlisle) or The Brickyard.

Bad Manners Poster - The Brickyard, Carlisle - Sunday 28th December 2014

  Sunday 28th December 2014
BAD MANNERS
MAX SPLODGE

Formed in 1976 while attending Woodberry Down comprehensive school, London, Bad Manners went on to become heavyweight Ska legends and a much loved 1980s pop band. Between 1980 - 1983, Bad Manners spent 111 weeks in the UK's pop charts and the band had 12 hit singles which included Lip Up Fatty, My Girl Lollipop and Special Brew.

Although their line-up has fluctuated since their successful chart career, Buster Bloodvessel has always remained, continuing to play the classic anthems to audiences all over the world.

Their numerous TV appearances included many performances on Top of The Pops along with slots on Tiswas, Cheggers Plays Pop, The Time of Your Life, Nevermind The Buzzcocks and The Time & The Place. Buster often dressed up for Top of The Pops, much to the bemusement of the show's producer, and who can forget him clowning around in a frilly dress and a pair of DM's for the Can Can, playing the part of Henry VIII while singing to a Blow-Up Doll during Lorraine, and also pretending to be a human blackhead while performing Just A Feeling for the nation!

In 1981, the group performed in front of a television audience of millions at the Brit Awards, and Buster himself also starred in the movies 'Sammy & Rosie Get Laid' and 'Out of Order' in the late 80s, before landing a part in an episode of Boon in 1990. Classic track 'Special Brew' has promoted a popular biscuit and also a large UK supermarket chain on TV adverts in recent times.

Bad Manners have always been a non - stop party band and continue to hold that high accolade to this day, touring extensively both in Britain and abroad.

With support from Max Splodge, this promises to be one awesome night!

Lace up your boots, pull up your braces and get ready to party with Buster and the boys. You won't forget it!

Limehouse Lizzy   Saturday 17th January 2015
LIMEHOUSE LIZZY

Limehouse Lizzy have been officially named one of the hardest working acts in the UK, alongside some of the country's biggest and most popular performers.

They were accredited for their live shows by the Performing Rights Society, and recieved their award from PRS Chairman and Ivor Novello award-winning songwriter (Elvis Presley, Ray Charles, Tom Jones) Guy Fletcher OBE.

Renowned for an action-packed pyrothechnic-fuelled explosion of a show, Limehouse Lizzy continue to keep the spirit of Celtic rock icon Philip Lynott and his band Thin Lizzy alive, well and dominating stages worldwide. The band have also added a tribute in their set to the late Gary Moore (ex-Thin Lizzy guitarist and world renowned solo artist) who sadly passed away in 2011.

Attention to detail, playful audience interaction and that all important X-factor that leaves you with the feeling of witnessing the real thing have led to their performance being described as “beyond tribute”, by both audience and critics alike.

Following the enormous success of their ˜Live & Dangerous” and ˜Dedication” tours, the band embarked upon their “Into the Limelight” tour to tie in with their appearance on an episode of BBC2’s ‘Arena’ documentary series of the same name.

The tour travelled as far as a headline slot at a rock festival in Greece, and the Virgin Atlantic Music festival in Barbados. The band appeared alongside diverse world music acts, and played a Thin Lizzy set representing the celtic rock genre.

In 2014 the band's European tour continues to explore and celebrate the artistic and musical legacy of the hard-living, hard-rocking, yet at times surprisingly tender and romantic artist that was Philip Lynott.

This year they will be appearing in the UK, Ireland, Germany, France, Holland and Belgium. Expect more of the Celtic influenced tracks like ”Whisky in the Jar” and “Black Rose”, amongst the usual razzamatazz and classic tracks “The Boys are Back in Town”, “Sarah” and many others we’ve come to expect from one of the most highly rated acts on the circuit.

Resurrection: A Tribute To The Stone Roses  

Saturday 4th April 2015
Red Telephone Promotions Presents:
RESURRECTION
A TRIBUTE TO THE STONE ROSES

Resurrection were formed in 2001 after leaving The Complete Stone Roses as a full line up. The members of Resurrection were in The Complete Stone Roses from 1998 until 2001 and helped to build the name and profile of the band before leaving the group to pursue other interests.

Resurrection members toured the length and breadth of the country playing alongside the likes of Mani (The Stone Roses/ex Primal Scream) and Inspiral Carpets members and count The Stone Roses, Primal Scream, The High, Inspiral Carpets, The Smiths, The Seahorses, Shed 7 and Snow Patrol as fans.

Some quotes from this period in the band's history are mind blowing with Mani quoted as saying "they do the songs justice and sound better than we did before we split".

The band last performed over 10 years ago and felt the time was right to give the public the songs they love to hear in the renditions they expect from a top class tribute band. The band are ready to dust down the flares and sunhats, wipe away the cobwebs and get back on the bus to Madchester for some more Good Times!

Doors: 8pm
Admission: £10.00 advance / £12.00 on the door. Ages 14+. Please see entry policy for info.
Tickets: Buy tickets online* or call SeeTickets on 0871 220 0260*.
