About

The Vibrators- With Eddie reassuringly still behind the drumkit for the band 41 years since they first started vibrating in and around London and Members' guitarist Nigel Bennett also back in the band, The Vibrators never fail to deliver. Their effortless punk n roll romanticism has the fiery punch and purpose some of their punk contemporaries can only dream of, and such a great bunch of songs to choose from, from Baby Baby to Automatic Lover and back through Disco In Moscow. Ace night out for all fans of great rock and roll. The London SS- is a name spoken in legends of the UK punk scene of the 1970s. Although the band never released any material (but there are rumours of tape, buried somewhere in the depths of Mick Jones' old flat) they were arguably as bigger influence on the formation of the infant punk movement as the Sex Pistols. Former members of the London SS went on to form the Clash, The Damned, Generation X. Scandal- nifty street punk rock ramalama played by relative young uns outta the Kingston hood, combining righteously ratty Machine Gun Etiquette era Damned punk n roll lead guitar lead grooviness with a bit of terrace shoutalong more akin to The Cockney Rejects- plus a wee bit of that Yank punk pop factor but not too much... it's a great blend, vigorousnas fook, as heard on their ace 'Street Punk' long player.
