Gimp Fist +…
February 8 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm£8
It’s Chris, Sloss and Debs’ birthday and we’re having a party!
This is the first time Gimp Fist will have played Norwich so let’s make sure The B2 is rammed to the rafters!
We’ve also got local lads Braindance, punk ukulele gals The Pukes and Nozzer’s newest punk band Motorneuronz.
For most of us there are old English bands that took place in our personal history of Punk, Oi! or whatever! Some of us have seen those bands in the past and some of us listen to their music on CD or see their shows now (often not the better ones).
However with this band you have the old power and authenticity in the present. Good music, great songs and lyrics – this is Gimp Fist now. Also on their gigs they transfer those feelings and the power to the crowd.
Braindance are a Norwich based punk band, originally formed in 1990. After a few changes in line up and 10 successful years of playing in a variety of countries including Europe and USA, they made the difficult decision to split in 2000. But they’re back with a new line up led by the bands original vocalist Sloss.
The Pukes play punk rock ukulele. We started off in 2011 at our local pub, the Royal Sovereign in east London, meeting once a month to have a few pints and bash out our favourite tunes on the ukulele. But we soon found ourselves in demand, playing gigs, festivals and punks picnics in the UK and beyond. Our first EP was released on Damaged Goods in 2012 and an album followed in 2014 on our own label Hoo Har. In the early years you could expect to see up to 20 of us on stage; now there’s five of us – Debs, Clara, Emily, Chris and Saul.
We started off in spring 2019 A group of 4 guys who love punk and a laugh, don’t take life too seriously. Paul aka Spartacus Dali the singer was diagnosed with MND so he decided to form a band with his old punk mates while he still can and despite losing the use of his arms he’s still going strong with the band.
When the band started out it was for Paul and raise awareness and fundraising for MND ‘Motor Neurone Disease’ but now we are going from strength to strength we now love to help others by raise awareness and supporting good causes and be involved in a fundraising events.
