Deathsex Bloodbath will be playing REVOLT on June 15.
Following a successful tour of Eastern Europe, where our last album, ‘The Principle of Evil Made Flash’, was ACTUALLY REALLY SUCCESSFUL, THANKS, it will be good to get back to our roots with another triumphant gig in our hometown.
The band will be playing the ‘mid-card headliner’ spot that they famously played at Glastonbury. As you’ll remember, DSB stole the show, although the headliner that year was only Sting. We’ll be faced with more of a challenge to steal the show at this gig, as we’re playing alongside DRAG, Kerosene Queen, Honey, Dispute Settlement Mechanism and Elaine O’Neill.
Due to mid-tour complications, our guitarist Caitred Alabaster was forced to hand over her guitar to a shadowy bunch of racketeers. Indeed, Caitred herself vanished during a fraught gig in Berlin. Has she joined a Buddhist monastery? Gone undercover with a graffiti gang to oppose the city’s gentrification by the villainous Media Spree? Or is she simply drinking in the Irish bar we left her in? Will she get back in time for June 15 and will her guitar be with her? FIND OUT AT REVOLT.
The gig is at Taylor John’s House, at the Anal Basin in Coventry.
We’re delighted to welcome Deathsex Bloodbath to the line-up for the next Revolt! We’re sure they won’t object to the somewhat “bricky” environs of Taylor John’s House after years in the music business. As the band’s entirely accurate Facebook page attests:
Now reunited, with new drummer and long-time stalker Sororicide, DSBB are delighted to be issuing their back catalogue on Corporate Records.”
Hot on the heels of yesterday’s post, we’re delighted to announce the final band for Revolt on Saturday 15th June – Cornish rockers Honey! This three-piece craft noisy, catchy, grungy tunes and put on a really exciting live show, so we can’t wait for them to play at Taylor John’s!
Revolt will be back in Taylor John’s House for a third outing in June! We’ve already got some awesome acts booked. You’ll get to see:
…sleazy punk from DRAG
…energetic riot grrrl from Kerosene Queen
…good time hard rock from Hot Magenta
…noisy, stripped-down punk from Dispute Settlement Mechanism
…emotive, humorous poetry from Elaine O’ Neill
Plus! There’s another band, more spoken-word acts, DJs and distros still to be confirmed. There’s a Facebook event page here.
If you’ve not yet been to Revolt, we’ve got some new photos from previous events up on the site so you can see just how much awesome one night can contain.
Finally for now – we have a new Twitter account, follow us for updates and the like: @revoltpunknight
We have some bad news and good news!
To get the bad news out of the way…unfortunately First Class Tramp have had to drop out of our upcoming event at Taylor John’s House on Saturday 16th March. Hopefully we’ll be able to have them play another time!
However, the good news is that we have four new acts to announce!
Filling the fifth band slot will be grunge group Fear and Slothing, who will be playing their very first gig at Revolt. We hope you’ll support them and their rather fantastic music.
You’ll find Pint Dreams at the bar near the start of the night, bringing traditional storytelling interweaved with live music and puppetry.
We’ve also confirmed a short poetry set from Punktuation, a.k.a James Hickingbottom of local punks Parataxis – James is a lovely fellow with interesting perspectives on things, so expect a thoughtful performance.
Remember, you can buy tickets for Revolt here.
We’ll also have space for people to bring and share zines – so if you want to bring along a zine you’ve made, please do!
Tickets for REVOLT on Saturday 16th March are now on sale. It’ll cost you less to buy in advance than on the door, so you should totally get yours now!
It’s also time for another line-up announcement…
Our line-up of bands for REVOLT is rounded off by Birmingham/Warwickshire group First Class Tramp, who will be bringing their own brand of punky, sometimes folky alternative rock to Taylor John’s.
For information on all the bands and solo performers at REVOLT, click here.
And so, for our second line-up post, we’re delighted to announce that the following acts will perform at Revolt #2 on Saturday 16th March… (incidentally, there is also a Facebook event page!)
Cat Bear Tree
“Deriving their name from a kick ass cat and a cowardly bear, Cat Bear Tree are a London-based trio whose indie, melodic, sometimes poppy, sometimes punky tunes nod to indie alt acts like Sleater-Kinney, Electrelane and Warpaint.“
“Poet, novelist, activist.”
DJs from Birmingham’s all-female vocalist clubnight return to Revolt!
