Yes, we might be skinheads, yes we might be pissed...
Over lockdown, we've been thinking of ways to improve the space, improve gigs, make things better, biding our time. The conclusion? Gigs are fine, but residencies? That's like gig x 2! So we only went and booked one, didn't we.
Chubby and the Gang - FRIDAY 19TH AND SATURDAY 20TH NOVEMBER 2021
From the underbelly of the consistently excellent UK hardcore scene, this London five-piece (ft members of The Chisel, Big Cheese and more) marinate the characteristic speed and sick-of-it-all energy in a mixture of catchy-as-hell 50s pop sounds. Melodic, fresh, prickly speed punk, full of imperfections one minute and an intricate flurry of details the next, balanced by two energies: "fuck it" and "fuck off".
Their brilliant debut album Speed Kills has been met with critical acclaim worldwide, loved by punk king Iggy Pop, 6 Music, Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, the general public and anyone else who heard it. Hit after hit after hit smashing into your ears, 2020 was gearing up to be their year but it'll just have to be 2021 instead.
DID WE MENTION RESIDENCY? YEAH WE DID! AS PART OF THEIR UK TOUR, C&TG WILL BE STOPPING OFF AT LITTLE OL' DELICIOUS CLAM FOR OUR FIRST EVER RESIDENCY! 2 NIGHTS, DOUBLE THE FUN, DOUBLE THE OPPORTUNITY, DOUBLE THE...SUPPORT BANDS!
"This gig is a match made in heaven" - Jonah - Fucked Up/Jade Hairpins
