Tonights headliners ‘Palooka 5’ play raw 1960s style surf/garage music using original vintage equipment. Always keen to put on a show – their bonkers image takes its inspiration from the famous surf scene in Vietnam war flick ‘Apocalypse Now’. With an 4 track EP released on ‘Fuelled By Cider Records’ their dynamite live show has become a favourite on the South West Festival circuit. Rock n Roll – cut to the bone.
“Bournemouth power trio The Electric Shakes accelerate into view with a debut set that manages to spread considerable variety across it’s six tracks. Appropriately titled opener ‘Go’ lays down a broad précis of what to expect; twisting and stomping at the heavier end of the garage rock spectrum, it swaggers with gritty glam confidence that is supported by an accomplished delivery. ‘Get Loose’ and ‘Lightspeed Mother’ indicate effective tendencies toward full-throttle bangers, with the former being reminiscent of early Saints, while the latter searches and destroys like post -reformation Stooges. The Shakes are at their most kinetic when combining their influences in alchemic ways. This is exemplified by standout track Daddy’s Girl’ an unholy fusion of rock, garage and psychedelia that benefits from some adept harmonies and convincing vocals. It provides a whopping great signpost to where the group’s strength’s a located.” – Vive Le Rock Magazine
From way up the M5 from Bristol we have DJ Steve Cube, a former resident of this parish no less, bringing with him a bag crammed full of SurfGaragePunk Vinyl platters to blow your minds!
