REBELLION NEWS  Greetings  7 Sunny(ish) weeks to go until we all descend on the shores of Blackpool for this years' festival!  Its been a while since the last newsletter so there are one or two great additions to the line-up that you may have missed:-  JELLO BIAFRA AND THE GUANTANAMO SCHOOL OF MEDICINE headline the Olympia on Sunday night, while OFF! (Keith Morris from Circle Jerks and Black Flag) join the Friday Empress bill and A WILHELM SCREAM replace Segismundo Toxicamo on Thursday in the Empress.  We have unfortunately had MDC and Devil's Brigade pull out due to unforseen circumstances and Penny Rimbaud has had to postpone The Last Amendment until next year due to health reasons.  We hope to have the three of them back next year.  This years' Literary Festival hosted by John Robb will be all four days and promises some great guests including Steve Bruce and Colin from Cocksparrer and Mick and Jeff from The Cockney Rejects.  This will be upstairs in The Spanish Hall which will also host PunkARt this year and a new Craft Market with handmade goodies from Birds on the Beach and others.  New for Bizarre Bazaar this year is Punk Rock Karaoke with Guttersnipe - Thursday and Friday come along and sing your heart out and let Guttersnipe be your backing band!!!!  Fancy dress is a must for Thursday night - Darren and Sharky stole the show last year, come on you know you want to!!!  There are some great acts in BB this year, Thursday promises the usual chaos with Eric Faulkners' Bay City Rollers, The Dolly Show (Dolly Parton tribute), The Rockabellas (Andrews Sisters as you've never seen em before) and the welcome return of ABBA Sensation.  Friday with the wonderful TOYAH whom we are really pleased to have back, Saturday with Lloyd Grossman's NEW FORBIDDEN and GET CAPE WEAR CAPE FLY  and of course Sunday with CAPTAIN SENSIBLE.
