The world’s biggest punk festival comes to London for its Christmas party!
 
Whilst festivals seem to be closing down all over the place the punk festivals are going from strength to strength- especially the daddy of them all- Rebellion.
Celebrating yet another sold out summer punk festival in Blackpool, Rebellion storms London on Dec 13th for a night of classic punk rock action that combines the classic withThe Dammed with the new-The Rabble and all styles in-between from the post punk heroes Penetration to Charlie Harper’s classic UK Subs to the firebrand revolutionary rock n roll of Goldblade to the impassioned genius of TV Smith- this is a bill that shows the breadth and depth of punk rock in 2008.
Rebellion haven been putting punk festivals on for 15 years and are the biggest and the best on the scene, the August Punk festival in Blackpool attracts people from all over the world and always sells out, this year it had more than 200 bands playing over 5 days and has become the focal point of the whole worldwide punk scene.
Punk rock is in rude health in the millennium- reaching out to all generations and this Christmas party at the Forum is a celebration of this.

CHUCK BERRY TO PLAY CAMDEN JAZZ CAFE!

CHUCK BERRY, ROCK & ROLL GUITAR LEGEND, TO PLAY TWO INTIMATE SHOWS AT THE JAZZ CAFÉ, NOVEMBER 08

"If you tried to give rock and roll another name, you might call it ‘Chuck
Berry’." John Lennon

Chuck Berry’s music has transcended generations. He earns respect to this day because he is truly an entertainer. Known as "The Father of Rock & Roll", Berry gained success by watching the audience’s reaction and playing accordingly and putting his listeners’ amusement above all else. For this reason, tunes like "Johnny B. Goode," "Maybellene" and "Memphis" have become anthems to an integrated American youth and popular culture.
Berry is a musical icon who established rock and roll as a musical form and brought the worlds of black and white together in song.

Following a triumphant set at the inaugural Camp Bestival this year, Berry will now perform on an entirely different scale. For just 2 nights audience members will pack themselves into the intimate surrounding of the Jazz Café and enjoy what will feel like a personal appearance for every individual in the room.

There really aren’t many artists deserving of the term ‘Legend’ left, but nobody would disagree that Berry has earned the status with (literally) flying colours, his guitar playing is unrivalled to this day and the energy he brings to his live performances belies his unbelievable 82 years of age. He’s always electric but up this close bring your rubber shoes or prepare for the shock factor: yes he still rocks better than the rest.

Mean Fiddler presents

Chuck Berry

Date:              Monday 17th and Tuesday 18th November Doors (7pm)

Venue:          Jazz Café, Parkway, Camden NW1

Tickets:         £53 + BF adv

Bookings:    Seetickets.com 0870 060 3777 24hr CC hotline

HANOI ROCKS TO BREAK UP BEFORE END OF YEAR

HANOI ROCKS have decided to break up by the end of  the year 2008. Michael Monroe and Andy McCoy feel  that they’ve taken the band as far as it can go and now wish to go their separate  ways.

All commitments until the end of  the year, including the UK tour starting in London on Halloween, will naturally be  honoured. In addition, the band has decided  to say farewell to their fans by doing a final tour of Japan in the spring 2009 and  immediately thereafter wrapping things up with a few nights at the legendary  Tavastia Club in Helsinki, Finland where their career originally got  started in the 80’s.

November 26th will see the timely release of the first ever career-spanning Hanoi Rocks retrospective: a 2-CD set  titled "This One’s For Rock’n’Roll – The Best Of Hanoi Rocks  1980-2008".

The band wishes to thank all their  fans, co-workers and business partners for their continued love and support  throughout the years.
